perfect in all respects. Like Reagan.
Get it? Everyone voted for Reagan (TWICE!), then made fun of him for eight years, and only now are people beginning to realize what a phenomenal president he was. I SAY, reading these lackey pooh-pooh reviews that slam Cameron for his ego, slam the script, and slam DiCaprio, that you all are just repeating history. You can't stand it when a truly GREAT cinematic opera is placed before you. Go ahead, pan it now that the 'hype' is all over! Shoot the wounded! Have your fun.
Because history will cast 'Titanic' in it's true form - a modern day operatic romance (for the ladies and girls) telling the historically accurate tale of the famed ship (for the guys), by weaving created characters through the events that changed the modern world at the time.
Don't like DiCaprio? - Go get a job acting and do better! Winslet's boobies and sex scene immoral? - DON'T WATCH IT THEN! Cameron's ego? - You are just jealous of his bank account. The man oozes talent! Cheezy lines? - Find a movie without them. Or better yet, then YOU try to write one without them! Oh, and everyone else gets to judge your work! So shut up if don't like Titanic (now). You did then, and your grandchildren will later. DEAL!
I was in 4th grade when I learned of the Titanic. I read books, built models, saw all the crappy movies about it (and there were many!), have every possible coffee-table book about her, and cried when she was found by Ballard in 1985. A guy. I cried. Now, along comes Cameron using a vehicle near to my heart. Using modern effects, better than the original Star Wars, and faithful to the events of the night by 99.999 percent. Do I try to find fault? No, I simply wept throughout the movie. The tragedy, the loss of life. Yes, sometimes I see the 'nerfing' of the deck, and the dummies, CG's etc. But I still cry every time I watch it. It's so emotional an experience for me I have to limit myself to once a year, just to take it all in.
You panners of Titanic, you are missing the point of the tragedy. A true tragedy, worse than most any modern day loss of life event (except Sept. 11), yet James Cameron brought love, renewed life spirit, and passion into it. The man is a MASTER, the movie, a masterpiece.
Still Don't believe me? Go watch "Raise The Titanic". Compare, then come tell me Titanic was overblown! ...Trolls...
