Forget trying to be "cool" by saying you don't like Titanic, because this movie kicks all ass.There are so many people who go around saying they didn't see Titanic and don't intend to or they say it was complete shit, trying to be original. However, there are so many people that do that, that it is ignorant, not original.
And, to everyone who says Leonardo DiCaprio is a bad actor, watch "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" or "The Basketball Diaries," he's more than just a pretty face. And, Kate Winslet... I don't care if she does put on a little weight from time to time, because she's British and British women are just downright sexy.
This movie has amazing cinematography, acting, directing, sound, everything. Some people think the little history jokes are corny, but I think they're pretty funny. To each man his own.
Now, this big love story thing that'd supposed to be so amazing isn't all that heartfelt, to me anyway. But, I don't usually get that sad during dramas. Armageddon is sadder than this to me, but I'm a weird person. For a love story, I guess it's pretty good. I usually don't get all that touched by love stories.
The effects with the ship sinking are amazing and the timely visuals are beautiful.
However, I bought this movie and watched it and a few parts are fake looking on video, but what ya gonna do, right? In the theater, this was the most amazing theatrical experience I've seen. So, I hope they have an anniversary re-release every 5 years or so, so younger kids can see it in the theater like it was meant to be.Get up off your ignorant ass and see it if you haven't, it's worth it.
