Strip: This is Watching Movies (Part 1)

This is Pi Day #014.a

It’s a bit corny, but she’s got the best pop ever.

Being a bit of a pop culture nut myself, as a dad there has been a list of movies that have been on my list of must-shows… when The Girl is old enough, of course.

There is the whole rating thing, obviously, and then –more importantly– there is that part about simple comprehension. Appreciation of something awesome comes from understanding. If she won’t get it, why bother?

Age ten has been a bit of a magic number: still too young for most of the PG-13 fare, but old enough to “get” the more complex plots of some of those lower-rated 80s sci-fi classics and other cornball flicks. In other words, we’ve been working our way through a collection of classic cinema and loving every minute of it.

In recognition of those great films, a week of movie-themed comics. Enjoy.

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
