Wasting so much $$$ to sink a ship on the screen & then to market the movie as a Love Story? Total waste!

Disagreed. It's a historical fact that in 1912 a ship named Titanic sank. There have been many films since then that have some kind of angle, like romance. I thought they did a good job with the story and effects. You might as well close down Hollywood and say all movies are cancelled and that all money will be spent on the poor. Great film!

That might not be such a bad idea afterall, LOL!

OK, and let's shut down all the recording studios to stop the million dollar teenage rockers. And let's shut down all sports for all those overpaid players and give all the money away. Or, you could just move to a Muslim country, LOL. No sports, no music, no movies. No fun.

Oh, there would be sports, music and other entertainments. Just not the way it's been capitalized like it used to be. A Muslim country has sports, music and movies. What gave you the idea they have no entertainment?!
May 28, 2011
When it comes to entertainment, I don't believe it should rank higher than human lives. When so many are going hungry and getting less than $1 a day in the world, spending a sum of $200 million on a movie is a bit too much. We are not referring to some equally or even better movies made with a lot less budget than this one.

I'm not sure how to respond to that since the poor problem has nothing to do with movies. Back to my original point, I don't think it was a waste at all. Earlier Titanic movies (from the 1950s I think, I'll have to look it up) also were love stories and one was propaganda. My thought is that there is nothing wrong with movies and entertainment. Creativity and artistry are important. Sorry you didn't like Titanic. Many people and the Academy Awards did. :)

The sources of cash come from the ticket sales, DVD sales and the actual production from the studios.  So you would shut down hollywood, give any money they make to the poor and put millions out of work. 

There will always be poor people.  I don't believe in rewarding poor people.  I do believe in social programs to help them out, but they should have enough courage and self-esteem to get themselves out of it. 

As for Muslim countries, I don't know a lot about them, other than they don't like modern American music.  Having religion run a government is something Americans have always disagreed with since 1776.

To me the production values and story of Titanic were great. Not a perfect film, but neither is it a waste.

Agreed. :)

I have great respect for James Cameron, I really do. It seems that everything the man touches turns to money regardless of its quality. I also have great respect for Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, for giving great performances in this movie and having careers to this day that aren't solely based off Titanic. I was planning to watch this movie and write a review of how overrated it is. However, I have finished watching it and I can safely say that I don't have the heart to do so and …

I really enjoyed this film when it first came out. However, it hasn't aged well with me and I just can't commit myself to the time to watch it anymore.

Almost everyone is aware of the movie Titanic.  It is the world's highest grossing film, and it doesn't look like anything will out-gross it any time.  Despite a huge box office gross, however, it's easy to say that there probably a million movies that are a whole lot better.  In 1997-1998 while it was reigning at the box office (staying at number 1 for fifteen straight weeks) it seemed like an unstoppable phenomenon.  People were seeing it more than once... a lot more than once.  …

A film that defined a genration and still has the power to speak to audiences of today...
The sinking of the Titanic was one of the greatest tragedies  in  history more than a 1,517 lives were lost to the frozen  waters it was a  tragedy that shook the  world  in  1912  and left a lasting impression on all those  who   heard of the loss of that day. Many films have been made in 1943 Werner Klinger used the events as Nazi propaganda to discredit British and American capitalist dealings and glorify the bravery and selflessness of Germanic …

Aside from it's legacy at the box office, Titanic has little that makes it that memorable. It doesn't have a lot that makes it stand out. It's got great film technique and a huge emotional impact, but there are dozens more movies that have the same impact... it's just a movie that had a fantastic run at the box office and a smart director behind the camera.

This move is moving. It was historical. It was kinda slow. There are just so many things that I don't understand about this movie. Much of it has to do with character motivation. Also one of my biggest problems with it, is that Dicaprio should not have died! I felt like he didn't want it bad enough. In these type of tragic movies I try to put myself into the shoes of the characters and try to think about what I'd do. And maybe it's just me, but I would've survived the tragedy. …
