Life of Pi

(PG) ★★★☆☆

Based on Yann Martel’s beautiful little book about a young man and the sea and a tiger, this film transforms into a big, imposing and often lovely 3-D experience. Ang Lee directs and while not all of it works, there is a lot to admire. Pi sets sail with his family on a freighter, accompanying a slew of zoo creatures. Terrible weather. The ship sinks. All die except for Pi, a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. The adventures and astonishments keep on coming.

Shania Twain Ain’t Horsing Around

By Chantal Corcoran

“I was having too much fun. I just wanted to ride around the whole town,” Shania Twain said when she finally climbed down from the horse she rode in on. The black beauty was one of 40 horses corralled down Las Vegas Boulevard by nine wranglers for Twain’s official arrival ceremony on Nov. 14. Police officers, also on horseback, cordoned off the city’s main drag to kick off the country singer’s two-year residency Shania: Still the One at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
