It’s no surprise that Life of Pi was taken so well in Vegas. This movie definitely grabbed me and that’s rare for a movie these days. Congrats to life of Pi. I really can’t wait to see it again. I’ve already added Life of Pi to my queue on Blockbuster @Home from DISH, since I should be able to rent it before Redbox. I saw it with one of my DISH coworkers and we would recommend seeing it for sure.
