Waterworld 2: The Shape of Waterworld

You may find this week's episode of Beyond The Box Set to be bloated, incoherent and confused. If so, consider it a tribute to this week's featured movie. Directed by Kevin Reynolds with a lot of alleged back-seat meddling from star Kevin Costner, Waterworld is an unholy mess of an action-adventure epic that quickly went down in history as one of the most notorious bombs of its time.

Watching the movie back to day, there's actually a lot to enjoy about Waterworld, and the film certainly has its defenders. But it's also a film that makes a lot of baffling choices, leaving a potentially interesting premise drowning in jarring tonal shifts and bewildering plot mechanics. 

In this week's extended episode, join us as we spend the best part of an hour just attempting to untangle Waterworld's plot, discuss the bizarre un-likability of Kevin Costner and attempt to salvage this movie from its watery grave with some potential sequel ideas - including a Wonder Woman inspired return to Dryland, and an apocalyptic crossover with shades of Dan Harmon...
