The Better Story
Life of Pi - Yann Martel

Defiantly funny in the face of total devastation, but more than that, ever hopeful. I guess that last is the best part of strong faith. The important part. Inner piece and enduring hope.

 

Here's the deal: I'm an agnostic. We get roasted inside *grin*. I could go a long while about the difference between religion and spirituality, between faith in god and the faith in the future that makes you stubbornly plod forward. I wont. My mom says "there are no atheist in the trenches". I have no idea what an ordeal like this would do to me.

 

But here is the other side, the thing about being an agnostic: I can accept both stories. I can love and believe in the tiger, and I can forgive the killer boy. The tiger is the better story, but to me, disregarding the second feels like hiding from a horrible truth too hard to accept. Just as disregarding the tiger feels like the cruelty of denying absolution, or the company of hope.

 

Good book. The movie did it amazing justice, tight and beautiful and with lovely, memorable music, so I highly recommend it.

Life of Pi - Yann Martel

This is full of deliciously dark humor. And hope. Endlessly stubborn hope.

Movie Review: Legend of Tarzan (2016)

 

 

This isn’t the child Disney version of Tarzan. This one takes a look at the important historical aspect of the time period. The Legend of Tarzan (2016) movie moves on from the Disney version and focuses on a new chapter, where John Clayton the third aka Tarzan is living in London several years later around 1884 with Jane. They end up going back to the deep jungle where we are treated to action, adventure, and a cat and mouse chase, where we witness local tribesmen being chained up, caged and shipped out as slaves to King Leopold’s empire. Of course Jane, his beloved wife, is also captured and used by the enemy. We are also treated to some comic moments, flashbacks, and soft romance. 

 

For me the Legend of Tarzan (2016) was pleasant and not what I was expecting. I found the historical aspect interesting as well as seeing John (Tarzan) and Jane in a different light. I liked that Jane was no damsel in destress and could take care of herself. I’m glad I waited to see this once it came out. It didn’t wow me, but it was still enjoyable.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

 

I borrowed this movie from the library and I’m glad I waited. The library gives me the freedom to watch all the movies I want for free.
