Anyone seen "Life of Pi" in 3D?

Been avoiding 3D because people tell me they get serious headaches and want to hurl.  What's the verdict out there, please, on "Life of Pi"?
Current repertoire:  "Come to Jesus" (in whole-notes)

Well, I did see the film on Christmas Day.  Easily one of the finest movies I've ever seen in my life based on one of my favorite novels ever read.

The 3-D process was very subtle and very beautiful.  I forgot about it 10 minutes into the film and then, WHAMM!, a glorious image would fly off the screen and astound me.  The shipwreck sequence was just overwhelming.  The tiger, Richard Parker, was nearly miraculous.

I can hardly believe that anyone here didn't see it.  I'm assuming that, of course, because no one bothered to answer my question about it.  You'd think politeness would at least trump disinterest, as in, "no, I didn't see it, but other 3-D movies never made me dizzy or want to hurl."  But, no.  Not one answer. 

I wonder if no one here actually saw it, or if no one could be bothered to answer my question about the 3-D process?  My guess is no one gave a damn to answer.  Just a sociological question with a sociological slant, if you will.  Just mildly curious.

First impression of Pi: it's a book about 3.14159265358979...
Then it came out as a movie: it's not a book about math
Now it gets rave reviews: Eh...  I'm still not interested.  I mean, who the hell names their kid after a Greek symbol for eternity?

I saw Life of Pi in 3D last week. The 3D is not overly present and the movie is wonderful. Typically 3D makes my head hurt but this did not. I highly recommend it.

It's a nickname because his name is Piscine Molitor Patel and he is named after a swimming pool (piscine). Still, who names their child after a swimming pool?

Beautiful film. Haven't seen it 3D (wish I did though--3D never gives me headaches like most other people). Wonderful story line and captivating and philosophical ending. I highly recommend.

(I'm probably going to pick up the book some time around next year, I just have to forget everything that I learned from the movie to make it a better experience.) :)
