Life of Pi uses a real tiger and from what I understand, movie studios mistreat, and abuse animals into getting them to 'act right.' And for that reason, I refuse to go see it.

Thank you Chisteen, sadly I truly don't like the use of wild animals (that have been trained for movies, but at the same time this is a journey told. Movie makers to entice people to come view their movies always put animals in them. For me I did enjoy the trailer, but would not pay to watch a movie with trained wild animals.

after reading Barb's and Marylyn's comments, I also will avoid this one.

I read the book several years ago and it is fabulous. I have seen trailers for the movie and I think they CGI a lot of the scenes where animals are portrayed. If you don't feel you can watch the movie for fear it might have misused animals try the book. It's quite a beautiful story.

I just saw it last night, and I loved it. So many levels, so much to think about. It wasn't so much 'spiritual', as often claimed, but more about the search for spiritual guidance, faith and meaning. I believe it advocated rational though, possibly atheism, while my Christian friend thought it confirmed the love of God. One is free to interpret the meaning however they choose, and encouraged to explore that meaning further.

Apart from 4 scenes where a real tiger is filmed, not doing anything specific or unnatural, the tiger is all CGI, as were the other animals in the boat. This was to help the CGI artists do the most fantastic job ever. The animals photographed at the very start of the film were in a zoo and very real, and the photography was breathtaking.

I'd give it 4 and a half stars!
