Format: DVD
In 1966 a young filmmaker named Bruce Brown was able to capture the beauty and power of surfing as had never been done before. That film was The Endless Summer and with it began a never-ending interest in the sport and lifestyle of surfing. Then with his son Dana, he created the classic films The Endless Summer II and The Endless Summer Revisited, leading Dana Brown to create his own style and success with his current film Step Into Liquid. Now this timeless filmmaking legacy is carried on as Wes Brown (son of Dana and grandson of Bruce) and T.J. Barrack transport us to the beautifully magnificent waves of Tahiti starring three Time Men's World Champion Tom Curren and six Time Consecutive Women's World Champion (and "Step into Liquid" star, "Blue Crush") Layne Beachley. With their new film Islands in the Stream, the next wave of surf film classics has begun.

Caveat emptor: Note, this is the surfing picture (as you can tell from the cover art) and NOT the Franklin Schaffner movie starring George C. Scott and Claire Bloom, as Amazon's "Technical Details" section suggests.
I only wish to crikey it was the Schaffner film; it's one of the few credible movie adaptations of Ernest Hemingway, in my view. A limited edition laserdisc of the Schaffner film was released a number of years ago by Paramount Home Video, but given Paramount's sad-sack release record on DVD - and the fact that the Schaffner film never was that big a seller on laserdisc - my guess is we'll have to wait a while yet.
The laserdisc version was pressed in a gorgeous 2:35.1 aspect ratio, by the way, as the original movie was filmed in scope, by longtime Schaffner collaborator Fred Koenekamp (Koenekamp also shot Patton for Schaffner, which also starred George C. Scott, as I'm sure you know). The VHS version of the movie was pan-and-scanned (and compressed during the opening titles!) to fit the regular dimensions of a TV screen, and it looked ridiculous. If Paramount ever gets around to doing the DVD version - and I have my doubts - hopefully it will be in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
Hope this helps everyone. I'm not a surfing aficionado per se, but I'm sure the surfing movie will look swell (sorry) on DVD.

HASH(0xa0733084) out of 5 stars Islands In The Stream: The Eternal Beauty of the Ocean Feb. 27 2000
By James D. Eret - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Jerry Goldsmith, in "Islands In The Stream," proved to me that film music can be as beautiful, complex and lasting as classical music. I can not imagine the movie without Goldsmith's music; the actions and characters so woven togther in the themes written for them. Beyond all the action of the film, always, a constant sea theme, a rising and falling of waves, powerful and subtle at the same time, dwarfing almost the human story. Yet Goldsmith is so masterly that he weaves the themes of the Boys, the Woman, the Journey, and the theme of deep loss and regret. There are strains of the folk song "Jamaican Farewell," that is magically turned into the threat of a shark attack. I have many favorite Goldsmith film scores and this is the one I admire the most; it stands on its own, carries the movie, under-rated by the way. I can't imagine how viewers could'nt respond to its themes of love, family, loss, redemtion, mortality, and all brilliantly underscored by Jerry Goldsmith's unforgetable music score. He has scored so many varied works that it is easy to lose track of his great body of musical works. If you have to buy a few of Goldsmith,s film scores, I highly recommend starting with this, "The Islands In The Stream," a score that captures the raptures of nature and tones of regret like no other piece of film music I've listened to in years.

HASH(0xa07330d8) out of 5 stars Hauntingly Majestic May 29 2008
By S. Reece - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Jerry Goldsmith raises the impact of an already stunningly perfect film with such hauntingly majestic themes that you'll long remember the melodies. The music of this soundtrack transports you into world of an aging man as he attempts to deal with loss and change.

"The Island" puts you right on a South Pacific beach with lilting clarinet breezes and tantalizing tastes of the main theme that weave in and out of an ocean of melodies.

"Marlin" gets you right in the thrill of deep sea fishing. Initially the mood is exciting and new, but danger begins to reveal a darker theme as the adventure becomes more difficult than expected.

"It's All True" leaves you daydreaming as the major themes whisper to your heart. The strings drift your mind to better times gone by... and you dread the ominous change that you know will soon come. But the music seems to tell you there is still hope.

This movie tells the eternal tale of a man coming to terms with his own mortality as he seeks to leave a legacy... to have made a difference somehow. Jerry Goldsmith has given us a legacy with this beautiful work!
HASH(0xa0733510) out of 5 stars Breathtaking Beautiful Score Oct. 11 2015
By Antonio D. Pena - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A fantastic, beautiful score that never got the attention it deserved. "The Letter" is about as close to perfection as you can get, and definitely one of my favorite score tracks of all time. If your a fan of Jerry Goldsmith, you need this gem. It wasn't one of his most famous scores, but it was one of his favorites. Let his music take you on a journey to the great mystery and beauty of the sea. Beautiful score. - Antonio D. Pena
HASH(0xa07334f8) out of 5 stars Original Film tracks from Jerry's favorite score... April 22 2010
By Gary Vidmar - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A Goldsmith personal favorite score that he digitally re-recorded for Intrada in 1986 is now available in it's original form on this Film Score Monthly CD. The original tapes are nicely remastered in stereo and slightly more complete than the Intrada sessions, but purists will want to have both CDs. An often lilting, lovely masterpiece from a composer who's had more than his share of those.

If you loved the movie the way the music was cleaned up is great. Remastered and sharp and clear. Crank it up with a great set of headphones set back and enjoy.
