BTW, did anyone notice that in this movie and in 'The Amazing Spiderman' the same actor, Irrfan Khan, talks about "Richard Parker"? Weird coincidence. Of course in the other movie, Richard Parker is the protagonist's father rather than traveling companion.
lol, I never noticed that. nice catch

Re: Life of Pi - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review, Mike!

This blu-ray movie was far better than I expected it to be in pretty much every way. The story, video, and audio were all fantastic, and it looked great in both, 2D and 3D.

Highly recommended!

Re: Life of Pi - Blu-ray Review

Wasn't keen on seeing this movie but bought it on Blu-ray 3-disc collector's edition now however reading some of the reviews from real people not critics might just enjoy it after all. Thank you for the reviews.

Much better than I expected. A visual treat and excellent story to boot. Once again another excellent review that forced me to buy and watch one that ordinarily I might not.

Re: Life of Pi - Blu-ray Review

Watched this last night, This movie was both a visual and an audio treat. You would think for a movie with half of it taking place on the open ocean how could it be interesting but the many camera angles color and the use of the surrounds was really well done. I loved the use of the LFE, tones of super low "make your pants move" bass with plenty of dynamics.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Great movie! I believe most of it was shot in a tank and digitally enhanced though it did look quite real.
