Life of Pi
Wow. This film was amazing, and we could leave it there really. It's really super rare that me and Laura sit down and actually enjoy a drama, but this one completely won us over. They make the film so beautiful and Laura couldn't even tell that the Tiger wasn't real! Bless her... This would be a good film to watch with kids, i'm sure it would keep them quiet for a bit, it would probably stop a crying baby from screaming, if you get where we're coming from. It's a very emotional film and will be tugging at your heartstrings. Just look at the pretty Tiger!
Everyone loves a bit of Disney, especially Laura, so we already had high hopes going in with this one. There was a big hype around this film (especially after this interview; Chris is a legend) when it first came out, so we were excited to see what all the fuss was about. It's a very complex storyline. Mila Kunis and James Franco play their characters very well, they keep you thinking through the whole film, trying to predict their next move. We're crazy about the monkey, who doesn't love a monkey? We can't really point out anything that's wrong with the film, but it doesn't quite have that WOW factor for us.
