5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in Time!!, Feb. 8 2002
This review is from: Sky of Stone: A Memoir (Hardcover)
As a fellow West Virginian, I feel a closeness to all Homer Hickam's books. I have visited Coalwood many times. It is amazing that his boyhood home is still the same as the old pictures in his books. Life is slow, and peaceful and the people are very proud of their history.
October Sky put Coalwood on the map, however, the people of Coalwood have raised their children for decades in this small
town. If you ever get a chance to visit do it. Homer Is not the
only one from Coalwood, this is a town of great people!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuck in Time!!!!!, Feb. 8 2002
I have lived in West Virginia all my life. I know how hard life is, to find a job and raise a family. I also know how proud most West Virginia's are of the state. I have traveled all over this great nation, and I can honestly say, West Virginia is one of the most beautiful states in the Union. I have also visited Coalwood on several occasions. The people are great, they are willing to tell there story.
Most of the housing that existed when Homer was growing up still exist and people still live in them. Homer boyhood home still sits on the corner in the center of what is know as Coalwood. There are no new houses in the town. I do hope that some day the people of Coalwood will be able to expand the town and have a greater tourism draw. If you ever get a chance to visit the town, stop by the only gas station/store and sign the visitors book and become a part of history.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yea right!!, Feb. 7 2002
This review is from: Armageddon 98 (VHS Tape)
This movie is for the person who would buy beach front property in Nevada. The movie starts with the world at the brink of destruction. With a little less than 3 WEEKS before the comet/asteroid his the Earth they pull of a load of miracles. First they are able to round up several people in the US to drill holes on the incoming space object. Second they pull to never before seen redesigned space shuttles, and are able to put special rovers that were going to Mars. Three, able to launch dock with a space station refuel and land on the object in space.
The fact is if the government saw this coming with less than
three week before it hit, the only thing they would be thinking
about is tiring to save as many people in the US as possible.
Great story if you have a gullible imagination, other wise it is a insult to anybody that thinks. If you want a good movie watch Deep Impact!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One up on Armageddon, Feb. 7 2002
This review is from: Deep Impact (VHS Tape)
Deep impact is much more believable than Armageddon. With months of prep time America and Russia build a makeshift space craft and send out a group of Astronauts to stop the comet from destroying Earth.
It is a shame that we had both Deep Impact and Armageddon come out so close together and the one that had more cash to promote there movie won out. I have seen this in the past, one of the best examples is Near Dark and The Lost Boys. Both good movies in there own right. However, Near Dark did not get the promotions that the Lost Boys did. and Near Dark just like Deep Impact was a 1000% better and more believable. The fact is the reason why Armageddon and The Lost Boy did better was mainly do to the fact of who played in each movie.
Over all Deep Impact will make you look up in the sky and wonder who is watching, and if they find something will they tell us in time??

Well if you liked the first movie you will like the second. Imhotep woman is trying to bring him back and the whole world is in risk of being destroyed by evil. Throw in the Rock as the Scorpion King. (A soon to be released move, but it has little to do with mummies) and you get a great action flick. The CGI on the Scorpion King was well less than perfect, to be honest it stunk!! Well worth adding to you collection!

A laugh out loud comedy!! Although somewhat stupid story line, it's a good movie to watch on a cold day. Story line a little week, but they keep the action and jokes flowing. Ok movie to buy for your collection.

Good acting, fare story line, some what predictable. But no one beats Morgan Freeman in this type role. Wish they would have developed the main characters a little better

Great story, but the first part of the book, first 200 pages went way to fast and let out a lot of info. Over all a good book.
