I've already talked about this film early in the year but Life of Pi was on HBO tonight and I ended up watching most of it. Man what an incredible film this was. Maybe it was light on story, but the visual effects and what they did with the Tiger is nothing short of movie mastery. If I have one regret, it was I didn't see this film in 3D because if there was ever a movie where it was still worth going to the movie theater just for the experience, this movie was it. Avatar may say they were they best visual effects movie of the last several years, but I say Life of Pi was better.
Wasn't there some controversy over the visual effects company who did this movie? I remember something about the visual effects people being pulled off the stage at the Oscars but I wasn't sure if it was for this movie or another one.
