First the turkey, then the Pi

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for MLH and Russell, Mr. Charlie, the rest of my fab family, friends, my blogging buddies, good books to curl up with, and the fact that for the next few months we will be treated to week after week of exciting new screen adaptations of some of the world's best loved books.

Timed for the Thanksgiving holiday period, the movie version of The Life of Pi by Yann Martel is now out at theatres across the country.

Check out this featurette with director Ang Lee and James Cameron weighing in on the 3D aspects of the film.
 
Watch it and tell me how you feel about The Life of Pi. 


 

 

Will you leave the pie to see Pi?

  1. We aren't eating until 5 today, so the movie will be the hors d'oeuvres for us. The guys are going to see Skyfall. Grace and I wanted to see Anna Karenina or The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but neither of them are showing in the morning. We decided to walk to the coffee shop, come back and watch Chocolat, which she has never seen. Should be a fun morning.
    Happy Thanksgiving! Thankful for the support of my blog friends and they're witty posts.

  2. Jealous! My in-laws would seriously disown me if I tried to leave early with my husband to watch Pi. Loved that book! Looking forward to reading your review.

    1. Don't be jealous. We have a long drive over the hill to grandpa's house and back after Thanksgiving. No time for Pi today either.

  3. YES! I saw it yesterday, and it's magnificent. Will post a review soon... maybe after Lincoln. There are just so many great movies showing and coming soon... can't keep up.

  4. I just saw this movie tonight and I can honestly say that I have rarely cried that much at a movie.
    And I'm a GUY!
    It just profoundly moved me. I think it is magnificent and so true to the book, and really, hats off to Ang Lee and just everyone who had anything to do with this movie -- I honestly cannot imagine any possible way it could have been done better. I saw it in 3D -- it was absolutely amazing. I think it may be my favorite movie, ever.

    1. I can't believe I haven't been able to make it in to see this one yet! I'm thrilled you loved it - I have high hopes. Right now I'm so enthralled by Les Miz I can't think straight - I don't know if you read my post but that one made my hubby cry!

  5. I'm so looking forward to this movie! I can't wait to see it after enjoying the book so much. I'm anxious to see how they do it.

    Hmmm - given the comment above about how much he cried, maybe I'll go see it alone! Sit and happily weep in my seat.

    1. During the day, when the theater is mostly empty. You can let your tears fall into your soda and no one will be the wiser. But seriously I'm excited to see this one; I know that the Pi in the trailer is a lot older than the boy in the book - curious to see how that worked.
