I just saw Life of Pi. It's a great movie in it's own right, but throughout my viewing I couldn't help but think about Battle Cat/Cringer. The tiger (hilariously named Richard Parker) in Life of Pi is done so incredibly well it gave me great hope that a life-like Battle Cat can be brought to the screen in a really believable way.

I know there's the great debate about whether he should talk or not, I'm not opening this thread to discuss that topic. I just wanted to direct attention to the tiger in Pi and ask what you other fans think of it and what your hopes for Battle Cat & Cringer are in a new movie. Can it be done realistically and without looking cheesy? Discuss.
