Best Sound Track for a Movie with Geologic Content
"Local Hero" has a minimum of geology even though its premise has to do with oil, but a host of memorable characters and great music are hard to resist.
I grew up in the western US where I caught the geology bug. After grad school on the east coast and post-docs in California and Australia, I got lucky and landed a university position in New Zealand. I miss baseball.
