Given how much water is involved in the flick I expected to need to make several trips to the bathroom. I didnt but the movie was so bad I really really wanted to have to go.

PeeWorld, with Kevin Costner, no it's not redundant.
To this day, this one dystopian future action movie still has a reputation as being one of the most notorious movies ever.  At the time, it had the biggest budget for a movie and the results on the screen were less then stellar: a giant water tank housing rusty boats and sets.  Really.  Does that look like it's worth the 100 million plus dollars this cost?  No it doesn't.  Add on top that it's only an average movie and well, you have a reputation that not even …

I got interested in Waterworld after seeing the Angry Video Game Nerd attack the Waterworld game for the Virtual Boy (he'd attack the VB along with the movie itself). I finally went to the local Family Video in December of 2008 to see how bad it was for myself and much to my surprise, it wasn't the abomination legions of people make it out to be, but that's not really saying much.      The plot is that the polar ice caps melt and flood the entire world, creating …

WATERWORLD was released in the mid-nineties to great suspicion in the world-wide press: "What? A motion picture cost $200 million to make?" While the flick certainly doesn't look like a $200 million film on the screen, WATERWORLD delivers precisely what it promised: a loner meets girl, girl falls in love, loner performs some heroics, and girl stays on dry land because the loner can't stand the feeling of solid earth under his webbed feet. It's popcorn film time, people. Don't …

Big Budget yawner that it's best not to ask too many questions about and enjoy the long and numbing action scenes. Would have worked better if it cut down the action and delved into more about how these people live and the movie hints at it here and there.

Infamous 1995 big budget film about how the ice caps melted and the world is underwater. Kevin Costner is a sea farrer out to survive and Dennis Hopper is a pirate leader looking for dry land. Really goes into left field and ignores the obvious questions you'll ask yourself while watching but hey, if you want stuff blowing up, it'll deliver.
