Intention for this fanedit: I was so pissed off when I found out that the Extended Edition which I believed to be the "Ultimate Edition" of Waterworld was a censored, softened edit for TV. Universal wasn't able to release a proper version on DVD so I thought I had to do it on my own.

Your way to achieve your intention: A "never give up attitude" and a lot of support from Cédric.

Thanks for all the credits Zach, but I hardly did anything except for the french subs. ;)
I merely gave my 2 cents and it's you who did the big fat of the work. Kudos for this release, can't wait to see the final result! :)

Hey guys,

in addition to Zaacharias' own DVD sleeve here and here, here are a couple of artworks and concept arts by Drew Indiana Jones Struzan, in case someone is interrested in baking a custom cover art out of them. ;)
Sorry; I couldn't find any better resolution. Perhaps with black framing? :roll:





I can't wrap my mind around the fact that they didn't use them for the theatrical release. :-?

I cannot find the edit on fanedit.info - I guess that's because it is not approved yet. Can anyone tell me how to get this most interesting edit or if I just have to wait a little more?

yes, I expected comments to come in much sooner for this one...
Don't let this faneditor wait forever, guys, you wanted this project so much and Zaaacharias for sure gave it his best shot and took all the time to create a true quality release.

I'll post a comment as soon as I can. I simply haven't had time to watch a film of this length with work the way it is now, but I'll try to watch and post a comment at the weekend. :)

I dont have the time to write a lengthy review, and there really isnt much to say since this is still technically the same film, just longer (and better) than we have seen before.

All the technical work is seamless, video looks great and the sound is supurb, never noticed any faults or errors besides 2 quick midscene "fades" where the image grew darker then lighter in a period of 2-3 seconds in the first act. Otherwise this is by far the best version of Waterworld I have seen to date!

Thank you Zaaacharias, your work and skill is very exceptional and I hope to see more from you in the future!

Entertainment 8/10 (original 7/10) the added material makes for a more well rounded experience and fills in a few holes from the theatrical.

Editing 10/10 both audio and video are seamless with the exception of the 2 scenes that quickly darken and lighten in the first hour (at the human base) which looks more like source error than editor error.

Extras n/a besides a nice intro menu and multiple language subtitles

Final score 9/10 this version is a must for fans of the film who want a high quality copy of the most complete version available.

well done sir!
