Today, We'll Travel To The Living Sea...

In Imax's documentary film, The Living Sea, you will travel the world's oceans. You will visit Palau, Hawaii, California, Oregon, Alaska, Nova Scotia and even the Red Sea. You will explore the depths and see life-sized humpback whales. You will swim with golden jellyfish, see the unusual spawning behavior of giant clams, surf in Hawaii, deep-sea dive in Palau and test your courage with the Coast Guard.

The Living Sea, was narrated by Meryl Streep and features music and songs by Sting. It received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Documentary/Short Subject in 1995 and was fifth on the list of the best Imax blu-ray movies in 2008. Definitely a top-rated choice if you love nature documentaries.

On this page, you will find a brief discussion of this nature film, including short reviews, a link to an excellent and more detailed blu-ray movie review and the movie or video trailer or clip. You will also find links to buy The Living Sea from Amazon. I find Amazon to be very competitive with their pricing. They are most often priced considerably lower than the recommended list price plus, if your order totals $25 or more, they offer FREE shipping.

Amazon Customer Reviews of The Living Sea

"I found this documentary particularly interesting, and think it deserves 5 stars, because it gave me knowledge I did not have before, and the filmmakers made some painstaking efforts to bring it to us, like the timelapse photography of the tides. It was nominated for a 1995 Best Documentary Short Subject Academy Award, and seeing it is definitely time well spent." ~ Alejandra Vernon

"Have you ever left a IMAX presentation that left you completely astounded? I have not seen this film in 4 years, but March 21 could not come soon enough. With a mesmerizing score by Sting, and great narration by Meryl Streep, not to mention underwater and aerial photography that would make David Doubilet jealous. A Must for serious DVD owners who want to truly enjoy nature in a beautiful visual and audible experience." ~ Ryan Schick

"This movie takes you on a whirlwind tour of how mother nature will always rule the earth. The soundtrack is incredible, and the photography will blow you away. I saw it in original IMAX format at the premier in Seattle and it was awesome. My favorite part is the U.S. Coast Guard sequence at Cape D (mainly because I'm in it - the guy on the left.) That two minutes you see was 40 hours in the surf of pounding the crap out of everyone, director included. Just a great movie all the way around." ~ sardog1vi

      I believe this was the very first Imax 3D movie I had seen. It was an awesome experience. Just beautiful.
