Let's admit right up front that, at least on a production level, Waterworld was a disaster. It went far over budget. Director Kevin Reynolds quit after repeated clashes with star Kevin Costner, who sunk $22 million of his own money into the film.

The crew grew angry with Costner because he was living in an oceanfront villa with a butler while they were stuck in cheap uninsulated rooms. Jeanne Tripplehorn and Tina Majorino nearly drowned when a boat sank. The entire gigantic multi-million-dollar set collapsed in a storm off the coast of Hawaii. And on that set? No one thought to include any restrooms. Joss Whedon was brought there for script punch-ups at one point and later described it as "seven weeks of hell [url=www.cheapcigarettesfamily.com]Buy Cigarettes Online[/url]," which sounds about accurate.

But for fans who fell in love with Waterworld's post-apocalyptic vision of an Earth where "Dryland" is nothing but a myth; where mutants with gills and webbed toes hint at humanity's next evolutionary step forward; where Dennis Hopper leads a band of dieselpunk pirates across the seas; this movie is a beautiful disaster.

With that in mind, here are a few reasons why those poor doomed fans keep defending a movie that's been a punchline since before it even hit theaters. So keep fighting the good fight and remember, Dryland is real!

Long before Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth took a close scientific look at what might happen to the world if the polar caps keep melting [url=www.ctdonut.com/marlboro]Cheap Cigarettes Free Shipping[/url], Waterworld took a science fiction look at the same scenario. The whole premise of the movie is that greenhouse gases eventually left the atmosphere so warm that all the ice melted, flooding the Earth. Everything left living had to learn to make do on the water. As movie messages go, this one was pretty overt. The best part is that the bad guys' mothership happens to be the Exxon Valdez, the infamous oil tanker that spilled millions of gallons of oil into the sea off the coast of Alaska in 1989.

Few sights strike less terror into the hearts of onlookers than a formation of water skiers [url=www.cigarettesss.com]Tobacco Shop[/url]. But in Waterworld, the smokers drag them behind a sea plane and launch them off a ramp and over the floating city's walls as they attack. Beware the water skis of doom!

5. Bask in the Awe of One of the Last Pre-CG Epics

Let's take a moment to appreciate the fact that Waterworld was shot on real water with real boats under real sunlight with real danger. Those water skiers who menace the atoll dwellers were real stuntmen pulling off unbelievable jumps, and that giant atoll set was built at a cost of millions of dollars on the actual water off the coast of Hawaii. In 1995 we were on the cusp of the revolution computers would soon bring to visual effects [url=www.cigarettesforonline.com]Cigarettes Online[/url], and Waterworld is filled with expensive practical effects that would, these days, be done digitally. Just remember that while watching this scene.

Dennis Hopper was already a legend by the time he made his way to the set of Waterworld, a movie that allowed him to unleash his freakiest self with reckless abandon. According to co-star Jeanne Tripplehorn he held court over a running poker game every Monday night, and word is he held up much better than most of the other actors during the grueling shoot. In the movie he plays Deacon, a mad pirate on a quest to find Dryland. He loses an eye early on in the movie and it barely slows him down as he attempts to replace it with a terrifying fake one and finally just covers it with an eyepatch that makes him look even cooler than he was before. If you're really paying attention, you'll notice that when Deacon praises "Old Saint Joe" he's talking about Joseph Hazelwood, the Captain of the Exxon Valdez when it crashed in 1989.

7. Jack Black Plays a Very Sooty Seaplane Pilot

Long before he was headlining movies, Jack Black had an illustrious career as a working extra [url=www.usacigarettesshop.com]Marlboro Red Cigarettes[/url]. In 1994 he found himself auditioning for a movie with a script he later described as a "wet Road Warrior," and he was eventually cast as a soot-covered Smeat-eating seaplane pilot seen briefly a couple of times in Waterworld. So what does he think about the movie 20 years later?

"We crushed it, bro," he told Newsweek. "I still trying to shake it. That what it going to say on my tombstone: Jack Seaplane Pilot Black."

Hot on the heels of her first starring role in the girl-meets-sea-lion family comedy Andre, 9-year-old Tina Majorino signed on for a movie she didn't realize would take up roughly six months of her life. Majorino is probably best known now for Napoleon Dynamite and Veronica Mars as well as her work on shows like True Blood and Grey's Anatomy. But Waterworld was her first big moment. She remembers working on the movie fondly, even though she was stung by jellyfish so often Costner nicknamed her "JC" for "Jellyfish Candy." Probably worse than the jellyfish stings were the hours every day she spent in makeup where they would draw and redraw the Dryland map tattoo on her back and also spray her from scalp to toes in a thick coat of fake tanner [url=www.cheapusacigs.com]Newport Cigarettes[/url].

Much like Mad Max had his souped up, highly customized car in Road Warrior, the Mariner's got a souped up, highly customized trimaran racing yacht in Waterworld. The boat was actually two boats, both created by French designers Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prevost. The first was the sailing yacht, legitimately capable of reaching competitive racing speeds of more than 30 knots (about 35 mph). The second was made to perform the impressive onscreen transformation from fishing trawler to racer. In a scene near the beginning of the movie (included below), the Mariner pops a few switches and reels a few reels and in a quick sequence we see a four-bladed egg-beater-shaped windmill rotor fold into the mast, which telescopes up to double in size as a boom emerges from the hull, unfurling the main sail and setting the Mariner racing off faster than his pursuers, who are on jet skis. After the boats were built, they were dressed up to look like they'd survived the apocalypse. The real sailing yacht was named the LoeReal and was sold off after the movie, and is still an impressive ocean-going vessel. That's it in the image at right above.

In The Making of Waterworld, Production Designer Dennis Gassner described the process of making the boats. "It had been decided that two trimarans would best accomplish the job to be used solely for sailing purposes, the other to serve both as the trawler and to perform the transformation sequence. For the trawling version, they came up with an eggbeater-style windmill rotor blade that would serve as a dredge under peaceful circumstances, while transforming into a sturdy mast when a quick getaway was indicated. They figured that the Mariner would have "kludged" together a windmill rotor that went through a gearbox to run a propeller, thus making it possible for him to trawl on the bottom of the ocean with some kind of strength kludged being Waterworld lingo for reworking found objects into something new and useful."
