What a marvelous feat of human engineering. It's like a city on water!
Oasis Of The Seas
I've seen this movie. Only Treat Williams, Famke Janssen and Kevin J O'Connor make it out.
There's gotta be a 'Yo Dawg...' in there somewhere...
No, just a monster from the deep that'll drink you to death.
"We plan on sticking to the tropics, below where any icebergs can be found. We simply feel this is a prudent choice."
That's a load of ship.
"It thinks we're either a threat, food or a mate - it's gonna either kill us, eat us or hump us."
Can't blame them really. The bigger the ship, the harder it is to navigate past one. It's not like something this big can turn on a dime.
Uh, what monster movie are some of you guys referencing?
Damn! I wanna go on that boat ride!
I'd be very proud of myself just to take part in constructing it. It's absolutley beautiful.
EDIT: found the movie, Deep Rising. I'm a sucker for monster movies like this
DOUBLE EDIT: Penis worms? PENIS WORMS? Thats the monster they came up with? Or is wikipedia lying to me?
As amazing a piece of engineering as this is, I can't help but feel the effort could have been better directed than towards a gigantic floating bacchanale.
I do like the idea of an experimental floating city/community though, especially if it was used as a research platform for sustainable aquaculture experiments.
I was watching something on the Science Channel that some company wants to develop these floating citys that are like a few miles in diameter.
I never remembered that being in the movie.
They said that the creatures were relatives of the Ottoia family, which are under the phylum of Priapulida AKA penis worms.
Do you think that was what the Chief was thinking when he told Quint that they we're gonna need a bigger boat?
I think Godzi's using Encyclopedia Dramatica.
They referenced it in the movie.
Well now I'm going to have to dig out my copy and watch it again. Pausing only to send Roger Ebert hatemail for calling it an Aliens knockoff. I don't give a goddamn that he gives Bay's films the slating they so richly deserve, no one disrespects Treat Williams' magnum opus. Aliens WISHES it was as good as Deep Rising.
YOU DARE DOUBT THE WORK OF THE ALMIGHTY JAMES CAMERON?!!!!?!!?!1one11eleven
I liked Deep Rising. Haven't seen it in a while, just started watching it again via youtube. I wouldn't call it an Aliens knock-off either. Two totally different concepts.
looking at it, i think of all those episodes of "Deadliest Catch" where they talk about stacking the cages too high, and the danger of capsizing.
i gotta go look up the dimensions on this Kraken of a a ship.
Now that's one big pile of ship.
