Life of Pi

Life of Pi(2012)

"Life of Pi" is no "Crouching Tiger"... This way-too-long-I-get-it-already film begs the question: Is 3D a must for every director to use these days? Does it enhance or detract?
Seriously, if you like the premise of the story, you will like the film. But if you like your fantasy pure and to make your own decision as to whether its a 'true' account or allegorical (a la Bible), the ending makes it way too 'on the nose' - which hardly makes it a religious experience, but rather dogma.
The 3D is adequate but often creates images that are not the right size as far as the perspective goes.
Overall very disappointing.
