    • First thing to say about the English DTS: X track is that it is loud. The second thing to say it that it is loud. Once set to the correct level the track is actually pretty engrossing. The surrounds and...

    • The massive spiralling budget, the behind the scenes arguments and the box office performance of Waterworld are well known. But the film isn’t all that bad; it is a typical 90’s actioner, what with outrageous...

    • Waterworld sails onto Blu-ray with a 1080p picture quality that is a massive upgrade over the 2009 Blu-ray and a pleasing refinement of the superior 2019 Arrow issue. The 2160p/HDR presentation offers...

    • When I plugged into Waterworld for Arrow's Limited Edition Release, I was immediately struck by how incredibly BLUE the movie was. As this native 1.85:1 2160p transfer appears to have been sourced from...

    • Waterworld gets nice and splashy with a brand spanking new English DTS:X audio mix that greatly opens up the soundscape. While I wouldn't quite call this the best of the best in DTS:X, it does offer a...

    • Well, that's the rub. I don't really call the Extended Cut of Waterworld a bonus feature, but that's all we get here. Universal didn't seem to want to include anything new or exciting from Arrow's Limited...
