Waterworld

Summary:


Rating: PG-13


Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Sure.


Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Yeah.


Language: I don't recall anything.


Sex/Romance: We see a naked woman mainly from the back as she offers herself to our protagonist. There is the selling of sex (but no actual sex shown), some passionate rolling around on the boat, and a man is asked for his "seed" to avoid inbreeding in the colony.


Violence/Gore: There is some, but it is a "kind-of-cheesy 80's movie" kind of violence and minimal "gore."


Music: James Newton Howard! I generally love that guy's work, but the soundtrack for this movie was a bit all over the place.


Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterward? : Not really.


Was there a food pairing? : I used DoorDash to order my favorite meal from BJ's, and to be honest it was mostly disappointing. And trying to pick unwanted spicy coleslaw off my ribs was extremely distracting.


Thoughts: David Twohy! Been seeing a lot of him lately with everything Riddick related. I also found out he wrote The Fugitive as well! Really fun to see more of his work with this movie.


First, I think the concept was A++. Unfortunately, it was riddled with plot holes. It was almost more hole than structure, honestly. The characters were all a bit shallow and seemed to exist only for this story, no before or after. So many things were totally unexplained that really needed some explaining. The antagonists were really quite comical in appearances, behaviour, and methods of defeat. I never really felt that they were a huge threat. But the story was fun. I went into the movie with very low expectations. I was really expecting just about what I got, a kind-of-cheesy but fun 80's movie (even though it was actually a 90s movie).


Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Sure.


In the End: 3 out of 5 stars. Fun concept, but needs a lot of work to patch up those holes.
