    The Oscar's Missed this one!

    A humbling story about a community in West Virginia during the 1950's. Our family has viewed this movie so many times we wore out the VHS tape, now we are buying it on video. A great example of courage, determination, attaining the goals of a lifetime and inspiring acting. If everyone lived their life like the ''Rocket Boys'' this world would be a better place. This is a must see!

    WONDERFUL AND INSPIRING

    This movie is one that you will watch over and over; On rough strssful days, and triumphant glorious ones, and just because. Homer and the ''Rocket Boys'', just some misfit coalminers' sons highschoolers do the unthinkable during the age. Create rockets and fly them. It is truly extrodinary, and so is the book, by Homer Hickam himself, ''October Sky'' (released earlier as ''Rocket Boys.'')

    Jake Gyllenhaal

    An awesome performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, and supporting cast. This movie shows you how hard it is to have a dream that is out of this world, but if you want it bad enough, and believe that you can attain it, then miracles are possible. You see how Homer and the ''Rocket Boys'' beat all the odds, and go out to build their rockets, even when times are tuff, especially for Homer, when he has to quit school, and go to work to support his family, but he always seems to keep his faith towards the sky.
