The Worst Titanic Movie Scene EVER

Discussion in 'Polls and Opinions' started by sharon rutman, Oct 12, 2007.

  1. Let's consider the worst scenes from Titanic movies of all times whether they be blockbusters or documentaries!

    For me there's a virtual tie between the nauseating spitting scene from Titanic '97 and the repulsive "wormy on the hooky" ill fated fishing scene from Raise the Titanic. Both are worthy candidates in the Titanic film hall of shame.

    Your turn!

    That "Wormy on the hooky" line is a bit hard to top, but that idiotic and pointless rape scene in the 1996 flick with Catherine Zeta-Jones would be a most ignoble contender.
     
  3. WoW! You two have just covered all the worst scenes that I could think of. I'm just glad that the movie "Raise the Titanic" didn't have the scene depicted in the book where, if I recall correctly, Dirk Pitt and Dana do the nasty in one of the rotting promenade suites.

    Anybody that would have the fortitude and the libido to "Do The Deed" in a place that would have to stink to whatever high heaven you believe in is much tougher bird then I am.

  5. Yeah, or just really stupid and desperately "needy". I'm so glad that wasn't in the film.
     
  6. Or when Dr. Seagram (sp?) goes insane, rips the head off the body of Arther Brewster, and starts banging it around. I'm REALLY glad that one's not there.

    Something tells me I'm gonna have to read that book.
     
  8. Do, but make sure you keep all the lights on.
     
  9. I hate being scared. Ah well. I'll Give it a shot. I bet the The Titanic after it was raised stunk to high heaven. sad.gif phewwww!
     
  10. >>Do, but make sure you keep all the lights on.<<

    That would make it easier to see the printing. FWIW, I don't think the book was that intense. The part where Dr. Seagram loses his mind and makes the corpse lose his head is more of a gross out then anything else.
     
  11. I just gotta read that book!
     
  12. I think Raise the Titanic the film and Raise the Titanic the book are being sort of confused. For sheer ditziness though, Anne Archer almost manages to top herself as her dubious performance continues throughout this overpriced flop. First she gives Dirk Pitt the brush off big time (I guess poor Dirk just failed to score. So much for his being a Titanic studmuffin). Then she blurts out to her scholarly scientist boyfriend that she was dumb for breaking up with that macho swashbuckler in the first place. Naturally, he stomps off in a self-righteous snit and she chases him down the stairs babbling "I'm sorry!!! I'm sorry!!!" She sounded like some teenage airhead instead of a modern career woman!
     
  13. Michael--how about Jack and Rose doing the nasty in the backseat of the car!

    I don't think that one is going to go down in history as one of cinima's golden moments. (Although I can see some chiropractors looking forward to the income!) Still, you'd have to go pretty low to beat out that stupid and piontless rape scene in the earlier flick.
     
  15. No argument from me Michael--that was a truly over the top moment which had no redeeming value and managed to degrade the Titanic into some cheap soap opera.
     
  16. Here's a goodie that has been overlooked--how about Cal playing Sherlock Holmes demanding that every inch of his stateroom be photographed after the bogus robbery of the diamond. Even when Rose primly informs Cal that something serious had happened, Cal is still pretty oblivious, but has Jack arrested on trumped up robbery charges and has him hauled off. Then ever the proper Edwardian gentleman, Cal starts slapping Rose around as a steward interrupts to sternly inform them to put on warm clothes, get their life jackets on and go up on deck at once. Oh boy!
     
  17. >>how about Cal playing Sherlock Holmes demanding that every inch of his stateroom be photographed after the bogus robbery of the diamond.<<

    A really pompous jerk might do just that. The trouble is that it strikes me as being a bit anachronistic. What liner carried detectives trained in that sort of forensic work, much less with the equipment to do so?

    I think I can count them all on one hand with five fingers to spare!
     
  18. Sorry, Cal, there was no CSI Titanic back then. I think a ship colliding with an iceberg trumps some bogus stolen property.
     
  19. I never liked the "Navaho Rag" scene in the 1953 film. It looked kind of silly, and a bit out of place in the prim and proper world of 1912. Yes, I know the song dates back to then, but it just doesn't fit. It's also hard to believe any young would just start singing and dancing like that on the deck, esp if the girl he's trying to impress is a member of (supposed) society.
    Also, the whole of Jack and Rose and the locked gate could have been omitted, in my opinion, it just added unnecessary suspense. We already had Rose hack Jack out of the handcuffs!
     
  20. >>how about Cal playing Sherlock Holmes demanding that every inch of his stateroom be photographed after the bogus robbery of the diamond.<<

    There is actually a book entitled "Sherlock Holmes and the Titanic Tragedy - A Case to Remember"....but it has nothing to do with Cal and "The Heart of the Ocean." LOL .
