Titanic was the four and a half hour gruelling film of the ill-fated maiden cruise of the largest ocean going liner in the world. For added excitement the film includes an unlikely love match between an already betrothed rich young lady (Kate Winslet) and a wild lower-class larrikin (Leonardo DiCaprio).
At the time Titanic was thought of as a major special effects blockbuster, but is now seen as perhaps the most undeserving Oscar-winning movie of all time. And speaking of Oscars, it was also probably the last-ever movie using cardboard backdrops (think the background of the ship, the King of The World scene).
As an innocent young thing, Leonardo DiCaprio was my clean-cut, wholesome teen crush until the infamous "Do ya wanna be jumped?" line. Still, who didn't spend four and a half hours in the cinema weeping?
