What is it? Ang Lee’s spectacular 3D movie of Yann Martel’s bestselling story about a young man trapped on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.

Life Of Pi

20th Century Fox, £21.99

What we said: “Life Of Pi is a ripping yarn, a fable about madness, a meditation on belief and a life-affirming story about storytelling. It marks a return to form for Lee. He’s always been an austere director of grand emotion – the moment Heath Ledger finds Jake Gyllenhaal’s shirt in a closet in Brokeback Mountain, or the pent-up longing of Emma Thompson in Sense And Sensibility – but Life Of Pi is a high water mark for him, a beautifully realised journey that goes right off the map.” Extras: Documentaries and deleted scenes.
