I enjoyed Life of Pi but would like to say I think I would have enjoyed it more without the beatings over the head administered at the beginning and end.
As the movie begins: "This is a story about Faith..." As the movie wraps up: "You see, this was a story about Faith."
Faith? Oh, I missed that. Thank you for explaining it. Even though it was impossible to miss.
Also, don't spend extra for the 3D version unless you're into watersports with jungle cats. The tiger pees on him. So unnecessary!
