Oh, I would also like to add that even though TITANIC won some Oscars, big deal! The Academy Awards are dead anyway. They even nominated SOUTH PARK for best musical score. SOUTH PARK was the "Worst Film Ever Made" by two stoners who failed to boost their career in BASEKETBALL. What is funny about the whole situation with SOUTH PARK is when it originaly aired on TV it did fine for at least three months until the ratings went down (and I mean down). But as some stupid twist of fate, SOUTH PARK had it's contract signed up once again and is now producing more horrible shows. Well to quit nitpicking on a bad television program all I have to say is SOUTH PARK is just yesterday's news, just like TITANIC. TITANIC is just plain boring. Plus, to all those SOUTH PARK-nerd fans watch a funnier show like THE SIMPSONS or TITUS.

Interesting thing I've noticed about Titanic... people like it the first time they see it.  I saw it twice in the theatre.  The first time, I loved it... there was just too much eye candy for me not to love it (I'm a sucker for 'pretty' movies).  The second time, the eye candy was old and I started noticing things like the fact that Kate Winslet couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag.  Just to test my theory, I rented the video and watched that... and sure enough, it was even worse the third time.  I suppose if I ever watch it again, it'll probably be even worse...

*wanders off now to watch 'The Mummy,' a movie that knows exactly what it is and doesn't try to be anything but*

Titanic.  What a lovely, soul-stirring and beautiful film this wasn't.  It's nearly as good as Waterworld in fact.  Cameron should stick to alien-bashing and flying piranhas and leave the love stories to Merchant Ivory.  It was like watching an Edwardian costume-drama version of Platoon.

Keep trying, James...  Not, on second thoughts, don't.

My jaw dropped when I saw this movie in theaters.  It just blew me away.  Certain dramatic aspects of the movie had serious flaws (there was quite a good reason that it did not get a best script nomination) and there were a few wince inducing moments (i.e. the teaching Kate to spit sequence).  But I loved, loved, loved it for its absolutely huge scope and vision.  Just watching the ship go down in microscopic detail was worth the price of admission.  It was a rather painless three hours, but I have not watched it twice.

Favorite moment, when the mentally overloaded Captain Smith staggers off the deck and onto the bridge to prep himself for going down with the ship.

I love this movie. It brings me to tears when that ship breaks and sinks. but the movie would have been better if Leonardo DeCRAPeo wasnt in it!!!

Oh jesus!  This movie sucked major donkey balls.  Sure like i'm really supposed to believe that someone of that low of a class like Leonardo is really going to get someone like the character Kate Winslet played to fall in love with him!  First of all he wouldn't have even been able to walk around that freely on the boat, he would have been forced to stay with his own "kind".  James Cameron is the anti-christ!...well, not really, Titanic is just a very bad movie.

The movie wasn´t THAT bad.The real problem was the lousy love story between two of the most useless characters ever.All Winslett really did in the movie was whine. And I mean all the time.Leo should have bushed her overboard when he had the chance.And DeCaprio role seemed like something out of a freak show:"Come one,come all!See the man with no personality!" Van Damme and Arnold have shown more facial expressions.
When I think about it, there`s nothing in the movie to make me even believe that Jack was in love with Rose.The way he acted he may have just been trying to get in to Rose`s pants.It makes more sense than the idea that he would have fallen for miss selfpity.

I'm going against the general flow here but I loved this movie. It was so surreal and sensuous! This was about the best period piece that was (to me) very convincing in both realism and detail . Yes I do know that 3rd class passengers would never be allowed the freedom of the ship that Leo got and that Kate could never had acted like she did but the "love story" angle allows the emotional involvement that underlies the movie theme ( I never got it...before). Yes it was very expensive(!) and Mr Cameron does seem to suffer from a small "ego" issue but this movie fits well in the grand epic tradition of the cinema . Now let me get back to my scotch and "It Came From Outer Space"!!

I thought the idea of was to remind us of how much we love film, not hate it! While this review was hysterical and true, it misses the main point of the site. We're supposed to LOVE Bad Movies! And this is impossible to love....
« Reply #24 on: November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM »

We have some people here calling the Titanic amazing and saying it's a beautiful lovestory, that shows love can get you through difficult situations... puke. Have you ever heard of Romeo & Juliet? Titanic is VERY, and I mean VERY cliché and nobody seems to see that because the movie looks beautiful. It's just s**t with lots of whipped cream on it (and I mean LOTS OF WHIPPED CREAM) and that's what makes it taste good. Cheap romantic clichés, cheap story... I've seen this somewhere else. Titanic is cliché. The story is s**t. All the effects, Kates boobs and other things that make this movie watchable are whipped cream.

First of all, to all you people who are whining about how much you hated Titanic and how painful it was to watch, let me tell you a story.  This is the first movie I ever saw with the woman who is now my wife.  Because this was our first movie, she now thinks Celine Deion's "My Heart Will Go On" is "our song."  You people don't have any concept of what suffering is.  Stop crying.

Second, to the people who are apalled by Badmovies.Org running a review of Titanic, the name of the site is BADMOVIES.ORG.  Not Low-BudgetMovies.Org.  Not B-Movies.Org.  Not CultMovies.Org, or MoviesByNon-FamousPeople.Org, or, or  It is a site for BAD movies, movies that are very very easy to make fun of and laugh at, and I think the reviewer here and some of the posters have shown that Titanic is a laughable film.  Some people like to watch big pretty movies and so enjoyed Titanic - fine.  Some people are very emotional or sentimental and actually enjoyed the love story - fine.  But don't get mad when people make fun of a movie you like.  It's just fun.

As for the Oscars, someone nailed it when he said the Oscars are a joke.  In 1994, Martin Landau beat out Samuel Jackson's Jules in Pulp Fiction with a Bela Lugosi impersonation.  In 1990, Dances With Wolves (a movie badly deserving of a review on this site) beat Goodfellas.  In 1989, Driving Miss Daisy beat Glory.  Holly Hunter won an Oscar for the Piano for pity's sake!  Has anyone ever actually sat through that dreadful excuse for a movie??

Lighten up, Titanic Fans.  Putting the occasional Hollywood big-budget mega-hit piece of crap on this site is a good thing.

Well, I have to say the movie did stink, I was a formulaic Hollywood romance using a dramatic story.  But it had little to do with the events of that night in 1912.  But two things that bugged me the most of the movie are a couple of continuity errors that are usually found only in the lowest budget pieces of crap movies.  ONE, the water in the North Atlantic at that time of year is so cold that you will be paralyzed in under 10 minutes and dead shortly afterwards. They got that right in the end.  But the scene where they were struggling to escape from the room below decks where they were up to their armpits in icy water for 15 to 20 minutes of the movie and were barely affected (should have been dead).  TWO, she is in a life boat but jumps back on the ship because she is so in love with him that if he drowns she want to drown with him.  And then at the end when he does drown, she heroically swims to get the whistle and thereby saves her neck after he sinks.  Sorry, this is pure drivle to pull the heart strings of the audience and is just awful movie making errors.  Please, you may have loved the scene at the end. But it should not have been in conflict with the earlier scene.  This showed that it was not a love story but a story about teenage lust that follows no rhyme or reason.  The movie was not without its moments, like so many of the other movies reviewed here.  But it is proof that Hollywood is all about gliter, pomp, and promotion.  And that the Academy is a "let's all pat each other on the back" organization.  And not about the art of movie making.

I hated this movie for two reasons: the fact that they turned a tragedy into a love story and Leornado Dicapiro.  They did this in the Pearl Harbor movie too, a love story in the Pearl Harbor setting.

Loved this film!  Loved it.

In my opinion it doesn't belong here among the mostly B-movies and laughibly bad ones.  Many of the comments above I not only disagree with but HIGHLY disagree with.  I found this film a visually striking, emotionally charged, suspensefully unfolding, wonderfully acted epic disaster film with a beautiful love story.  I was highly impressed with the whole production.  Kate Winslet is a real hottie (I'd seen her in Heavenly Creatures and couldn't take my eyes off her).  I don't hate Dicaprio like many others here (He was great in This Boy's Life with DeNiro...seen it?).  I would actually like to be like his character and break the monotony of my life and "take off" to a change of setting.  The scenes of the ship were amazing to watch...particularly as it's sinking.  I guess I can overlook the flaws in this film and enjoy it for the same reason I can watch many of the "actual" bad movies on this site and enjoy them.  

Come on folks!  This is just a Godzilla film without the Godzilla, all Japanese cast, voice dubbing or break-a-part buildings!  But seriously, you actually hate Titanic because you hate ALL movies like this for some reason:  love story, huge budget, overhyped, large SFX budget, Leo's in it, dominated the Oscars...etc.  So TRASH AWAY!  I also liked the Abyss which was trashed here.

(Actually, the DVD is something of a disappointment.  The picture quality is lacking for a movie that cost a zillion dollars to make.)
