Now, I don't want this to be a bashing thread. I get enough of this in IMDb. I made this thread for people who thought it was good or perfectly okay. Not for fans who have venom against Leo DiCaprio and the movie in general. Anways, while some may complain about the relationship of Rose and Jack, I thought the rest of the movie was pretty good. Sure, there are many historic inaccurasies, but, hey, it's the only movie that features Titanic looking the exact way it did back then. It also gives us a portrayl of how people struggled to save their life's that night.
There was also some very emotinal scenes, like when the mother is telling her children a bed time story, as the ocean floods their cabin, or the older couple, waiting to die, in bed. Or frozen mother and baby. The most scene that strikes me the most, is the final sinking and the people in the frozen coarps, one must think of the horror.

Didn't we have a TITANIC topic before the board went down last time?

Saw it thrice in the movie theater, but I never shed a single tear. I must admit, for a highly overrated movie, 'Titanic' at least had a good amount of highly emotional scenes as well to compensate. Especially when the ship finally sinks. Although I reallt could care less for Jack and Rose, lol. http://www.rodansroost.com/ikonboard/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

Agrees somewhat, but I thought that ''A Night To Remember'' was a better Titanic film.

<font color='#0000FF'>I saw it three times in the theatre,
the first time was opening night, I really enjoyed it, and got a stiff lump in my throat.
the second time, I noticed a few descrepancies.
and the third time I felt like I was being brainwashed.
I absolutly support this thread and the concept behind it.
I grow very tired of 'would be' movie critics condemning a movie because Leonardo decaprio is in it.
He is enjoyable to watch and probably wont be recognised as a serious actor until he's too old for the Pretty boy parts.
Ie. Johnny Depp, who was stuck as a pretty boy for a long time, now that he's in his forties, he's a real actor.
Although I enjoyed titanic, and admitingly own a copy of it, and watch rarely, but I do watch it....Movies based on actual events (historical fiction or otherwise) always make me think of what they could have accomplished if they had used $200,000,000 dollars on a documentary of the subject.
#### with that kind of money, they could have built the fricken titanic twice, and sailed it as a tribute.
shows what kind of society we have where, lets pretend is FAR more lucridave than lets do.
sorry I digress.

Though it's overrated, it's still a good movie to watch. Though I hated how we were blitzed repeatedly by that Celine Dion song. It started out as a nice sad song about lost love... then by the 555.5th time... you wanted to just scream "ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!" This is how great songs get ruined... over exposure.
