Since then, movies keep on coming from here and there, whether a good movie or not. It has a wide variety in our time now because we, people, are not satisfied without the presence of the so called ‘moving pictures’. It moves along with our life now, compared to the life of the movies back then, which only a few can catch a glimpse with because first, not everyone can afford to buy a television set or go to the cinemas. Second, it is only aired on selected channels and areas and lastly, not everyone can appreciate the quality of movies back then so, that makes the movies a hit today in the mainstream.
To pick out just one favorite movie out of the thousands out there, is just so hard because I have already seen a lot of wonderful and block buster movies. Well, on top of all, I came up with a basis with the genre, how the story goes, dynamics, sets, and the level of coolness of the movie. With three days of thinking, I chose “Life of Pi”.
This is a very inspiring movie and it’s cool because it has a tiger in it and not all movies have that. I can’t imagine how a man and a tiger can be together on the same boat because we all know that tigers are viscous and it can eat a man alive in just a few seconds but still, the two (man and tiger) still managed to look after one’s back even though it’s a rough wave for them. There are a lot of beautiful life lessons that can be inferred here. First, I learned that, everyone really needs a companion, even if it is not alike himself. Second, there is always hope. Third, life always has a rough wave for us people, it’s not just always sunshine and beautiful weather. Fourth, it is wonderful to live, and last but not the least, even though you cannot see God physically, he is always there for you no matter what happens.
In the end of the movie, the two were washed off along the shores after a long journey in the deep blue sea. Suddenly, there were men that saw the two castaways, so, the men helped out the human castaway and the tiger ran away and the two never saw each other again. The man cried when his companion left him but he cannot do anything about it because he is not the one controlling the tiger’s life. But I think the reason why the tiger did that is because it wants the man to be saved and maybe it thought that, they already shared a wonderful journey and it’s time for them to take a break and live their lives as it is.
Life of Pi is such a breath taking movie. It just leaves me speechless yet inspired, and amazed at the same time,
