I don't get it. Should it be good?

Eh...
Brian Bethune of Maclean's describes Life of Pi as "[a] head-scratching combination of dense religious allegory, zoological lore and enthralling adventure tale, written with warmth and grace".Master Plots suggested the "[c]entral themes of Life of Pi concern religion and human faith in God".

It's one of the trailers ahead of every movie I go to these days. I roll my eyes every time.

I rather watch the trailer 50 times then see Red Dawn's one more time. Hearing Chris say "this is our home" in his non-american voice infuriates me and it plays endlessly on nearly every channel.

Looks like another 3D pile of nothing. Has there ever been a 3D movie that's been good?

Heh I think Red Dawn's the next one I'm going to see. I can turn my brain off, and pretend I'm smarter than filmmakers who'll probably make hundreds of millions, at the same time. Can't go wrong.

If nothing else it'll motivate me to watch the original again. I'd pay $10 for some decent motivation.

The thing that bothers me about the Red Dawn trailer is that it seems to be set in a city of some size. You see tall buildings in the backgrounds of the shots. The whole idea of the original is that they were kids raised in the country and survived on the land while avoiding the enemy.

What do you expect from Hackywood, something original?
