Waterworld (USA. 1995)

Calm down. It's not that bad.

Yes, I know it cost 175 million dollars. Yes, that's an absurd amount of money to spend on a Mad Max Rip-Off (On the water!) starring a out of place Kevin Costner. Still, try to put all the projects bad history behind your viewing experience and you'll find an enjoyably goofy pulp adventure film. It's unsure if it should be a serious (Ugh. Romantic Drama) or a stupid goofy action film (Dennis Hopper as the bad guy has definitely chosen the latter). It's Way, Way, Way too long at 2 Hours and 17 minutes (And there's roughly a million different cuts floating...Hey! A pun...around) and there's plot holes galore, but it's still, at the end of it all, a fun high concept spectacle film. Now if only they could cut out the damn annoying cute kid relief...
