Life of Pi (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + UV Copy)

Considering that it's based on such an apparently unfilmable book, the superb movie of Life of Pi is a genuinely staggering achievement. At heart telling the story of its central character, Pi, the film juggles an assortment of themes in an accessible, compelling manner, with a mix of drama, humour and relatable emotions. No wonder it won an Oscar for its director, Ang Lee. Lee, as it turns out, is a perfect choice for the material.

He conjures up some quite wonderful imagery, to the point where there are moments you simply wish you could freeze the screen, print it off, and place the picture on your wall. He then blends in seamless effects work, not least a tiger who proves pivotal to Pi's journey, and most impressively of all, he turns it into a fabulous film, with genuinely broad appeal.

It's also a film that's that rarest of things: one that makes the most out of 3D. Even cynics towards the 3D format would have to concede that Lee has done exceptional work with Life Of Pi, and the 3D Blu-ray is arguably the best way to enjoy the film outside of a cinema. The scenes on the ocean, for instance, are astounding. The disc is rounded off with some interesting behind the scenes material, although you do get a sense that there's a lot more of the story to tell.

Still, Life of Pi is an incredible movie, and one that deserves to be enjoyed and appreciated time and time again. --Jon Foster
