Any new news about something of a DVD release for the extended edition of Waterworld?

There really are fans of this film? Crazy...

I certainly can't imagine a LONGER version of this lumbering twelfth-rate ROAD WARRIOR ripoff, made for a couple hundred times the budget, but perhaps if the Director's Cut consisted of 100% all-new footage from the cutting-room floor, we might have something.

Apparently someone who hasn't seen the much superior extended TV cut before....

I saw the tv version on ABC many years ago and it was an improvement.

That's like asking for an extended version of Ishtar.

If Sony is still the rights holder to Ishtar, I'd say there's a very strong possibility of an extended cut being prepped right now. Posted Image

Actually I think it's a very good post-apocalyptic film.

Excuse me as I go take a shower -- the stench from this thread crap is a bit too much to handle.


Anyway, I've always wanted a 2-disc SE of this film, but it's Universal, so, you know...

Indeed uncalled for, and not very interesting, especially if you didn't see the DC-version in question.
This isn't even a review thread - it's some members asking for a release. Nor isn't it a poll of sorts.

Please refrain from further thread crapping.
Thanks!

I found the extended TV cut/directors cut to be quite superior to the theatrical cut, of course it was a shame that they cut the profanity and some violance for TV - but for character development and background stories etc it was still far superior.

I'd buy a DC in a heartbeat.

I would also buy a DC of this, and besides, the current theatrical dvd is severely lacking in video and audio. Even the DTS disc doesn't sound so good, IMO.

Sorry, didn't mean to threadcrap. I was just amused because it always comes up on the worst movie lists. I thought it was an ok film.
