Movie Reviews

A good introduction to geology
I. Chiang | Silicon Valley, CA, USA | 01/22/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"After having visited so many national parks in the US, I start to get interested in the making and shaping of these fantastic landscapes, which is the reason I bought this DVD.

The best thing when I watch this DVD is that I've been to most of the places shown in this film, including Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens, Yosemite, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Olympic, Grand Canyon....... When it explains the geological terms or activities such as subduction, mantle, crust, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes and glaciers, I can comprehend them in an enjoyable way. Everything is vivid to me.

In my opinion, geology is best studied when you have some field experience. If you are a national park lover just like me, you will enjoy the knowledge this film brings to you."

"I bought this video to show to my 8th grade science class. It is very informative and covers a vast array of topics that relate to our curriculum, but the delivery is very dry. The narrator speaks almost in monotone. It is full of great information that will benefit the students if they could stay focused. I was told by many students "Miss, this is soooo boring!"."
