Titanic (1997)

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?

    I come from Southampton and the memorial to the Stokersa is in the park. I saw this at the cinema and the heating was broken, so it was cold adding to the atmosphere. The audience clapped and cheered at the end.

    Went to see this 3 times when it was out, just to see Leo. 11 years on I can't believe what a waste of time and money it was! They usually show it on TV around Christmas in the UK, its a very dull film, can't believe I actually paid to see it!

    this movie is the greatest movie i have ever seen. there is no class of other movies in comparison to this movie. i have seen this movie nearly 50 times till now. i used to watch this movie almost everyday in the vacations. but i need the background musics that are been played in the last few minutes when the ship just begins to sink. the actor is leaving the girl and asking the girl to move away from the ship but the girl jumps back into the ship. exactly at that moment a soft music is played which i need. please if anyone has it then give it to me. god bless all. my e-mail is shaze1_s!yahoo.com

    Loved seeing Titanic on the big screen. After watching it on dvd I realised that the script was awful and full of boring dialogue! The sinking scenes were the best. Very true to life!

    It was on the 22nd.July.2005 I watched Titanic on the TV for the very very first time. I was 11 at the time, and I had never have heard of the Titanic in my life, so it was like a completly new thing to me. (Mum had never got the film on video because she doesn't normly buy a film when it comes out on video). I said to my Mum "what's Titanics" (I thought it was called Titanics) My Mum told me that it was a ship that sank and it was a true story. Then on the 8th.August.2005 I went to my Nanny's, and she had the movie and I said "Can I watch it" Nanny said "Ok but it's a grownup's film" I said "I've seen once before on the TV about 3 weeks ago" So I watched the film watched and eversince then I couldn't stop thinking about it. I remember how I felt I just couldn't sleep that night because I just couldn't stop thinking about Titanic! When I got home from my Nanny's a few days later I told my Mum that I had watched the film for the second time, and when I saw it, I came very intrested in it, and I wanted to find more info on it. So I searched the web for Titanic, and I found some books from the library, and borrowed the film from the library. Eversince I saw that film for the secind time on the 8th August 2005 I really liked the Titanic. I've been liking the Titanic eversince I was 11 now I'm 13 I still love the Titanic as much as I did back then, and I think that I will like it forever more no matter what! I love everytjing that is just to do with Titanic!

    I watched that film three times in the theater plus I've seen it many more times on the cassette and on TV. As a 21-year-old at the time, I was not just into the story of the Titanic, but also into that love story. The thing that did drive me crazy about the Titanic fad was hearing that Celine Dion song all the time. Without exageration I would hear that song EVERY SINGLE DAY! And most often I'd hear it twice a day, on "lucky" days even three times!!! To make matters worse, the radio would start throwing in clips from the movie. Anyway, enough of my venting.

    When Titanic came out, all the popular kids loved it, especially the girls. I hated it because the popular kids liked it. I finally saw it 7 years later as a young adult and I ended up regretting that I never saw it along with the other kids not because it's a great movie, but because it symbolized a time of adolescence for my generation.

    I HATED this film! It came out in the cinema when I was starting six-form and every one went to see it! It was massive at the time! Best bit of the film for me is when Kate Winslet's character says "I'll never let you go Jack" when they are floating in the freezing sea.... then she LETS HIM GO and he floats to the bottom of the Ocean! NICE*Nonesense! Soppy rubbish with a naff sound track too! Didn't do any justice to the real life Titanic disaster.

    Never watched this in the movie theatre, I waited for the DVD then borrowed it from a friend! I spent most of the movie muttering "sink the damn ship already!". Once they hit the iceberg, there was plenty of action, but the love story was just tedious.
