Friday math movie - Pi Day
By Murray Bourne, 14 Mar 2008

3.141 592 653 589 793...
On with the movie.

Thanks for the enlightening review of Pi, Vlorbik. You made an good point about the relative costs of movie making.
There is something insane about making mega-blockbusters that cost mega-bucks, especially when we have mega real problems that could be easily solved with those mega-bucks...

I just tried all 3 movies on this page just now and they are all working fine for me.
Anyone else having trouble?
And Sindhu, thanks for the mention of squareCircleZ on your "blag"!
[Actually, you can recite lots of digits of pi, if you really want to ^_^ ]
