I tried to watch The Postman once. It bored me. Anyway, f**k all that. WATERWORLD is Awesome Fun! Great Memories of watching it on the big-screen back in Summer '95.

If you watch Costner on Inside The Actor's Studio, he does speak quite fondly of it. For better or worse, the film was a milestone and deserves recognition for the fact. Its appeal to me is basically that I'd rather watch an ambitious failure than a competent run-of-the-mill affair, which is the same reason I also quite like The Postman.

Either way, King of Kafiristan, that was a superb post!



Cheers! I'm definitely unashamed to champion WATERWORLD: it is one of the last great practically shot epics. The scale of the production is truly awe inspiring, and I love the world they created. I'm rather fond of THE POSTMAN too, though I have to say it can't hold a candle to the book, which is one of my favorite novels of all time.

PS Kevin Costner is an extremely talented director, and it's a shame he's not been given more of an opportunity to flex those skills in the wake of OPEN RANGE - a film I consider to be one of the finest westerns of all time.


I concur with nadaplissken, you made a great post and it's refreshing to hear some real passion for this movie, there aren't many of us fans here!

I dunno, we've reached three pages of love so far

I saw the real trimaran at Universal Studios Orlando back in 2000.

There were two built, apparently, one with a collapsible boom and windmill used in the transforming shots (which is the one at Universal Studios I think), and another used for the long shots. There's a video of the second one on Youtube somewhere; it's privately owned and looks, I'm sad to say, "normal". Why you would redecorate such a cool looking vehicle is beyond me.

Well, some would call me crazy, but I just acquired the 3 hour cut of this classic. The backstory of the world in general gets fleshed out a lot more by the "trial" scene of Costner and additional scenes on the atoll. Also there are some really interesting additions with Hopper; he's painted more like a deluded religious fundamentalist (fitting to his name), calling evolution "blasphemy" etc. Obviously, you can see why the studio chopped those bits out. A few of the plot holes get plastered up...a bit.

On the downside, seeing these parts also emphasizes the sprawling masterpiece the film COULD have been and all the missed opportunities. But IMO any extra footage of Waterworld is as valuable as a full cup of hydro. Well worth bartering a full jar of dirt for

I had no idea there even was a 3 hour cut of this, do any of the versions come with a Costner commentary?

The original 3 hour cut was shown once on the Sci Fi channel in the US, I think, and is known as the "Ulysses Cut". However, despite adding deleted scenes, overall they'd bastardized it by removing a lot of language and violence, and apparently the infamous piss filter scene as well.

The version I saw originated from fanedit.info, which is the "Ulysses Cut" with the stuff SF deleted restored. So, it's completely unofficial. There was a bit of excitement when the remastered DVD was announced the other year, but that turned out to be the same old theatrical cut with only the trailer as an extra! Utter BS

I continue to hope for a proper re-release with a Reynolds / Costner commentary. A film with such a tortured production deserves as much. As they are working together again on Hatfields & McCoys, we can only keep our fingers crossed.

Nothing's free in Waterworld!

So is the Extended Cut that you can get on R1 DVD the same as the Ulysses Cut (which was shown on ABC in 1998) ?

Apparently the 3 hour version released was the TV edit with less violence and urine-distilling. I think there's about a minute of cut footage overall

I very much doubt Universal will release a special edition blu ray /DVD of Waterworld, which is a shame really becasue it is one of the best 90's sci-fi action romp's ever!
