I personally liked the movie, I probably have seen it more than a dozen times. you are right, it brings the Titanic back to life and the effects are so real. I guess some people don't like it because of the romance angle.Hi everyone,
As I have been reading through all your messages and a strange pattern seemed to arise. I personally liked the 1997 Titanic movie,because of its accuracy with the ship and the factual events that happened on April 15th 1912. But lets get to the point. I was wondering why so many people seem to dislike this movie so much? I love the film because it brings the Titanic back to life.I was so shocked with accuracy when the wreck turned into the ship on Sailing Day at Southampton. The special effects are so great and look real. So why do so many people dislike this movie?
Regards Nigel Bryant
P.S. I first saw the 1953 "Titanic" movie on the big screen during its 1953 debut at a down town first run theater in San Diego.I like it for the detail and special effects.
I think most people just don't like the "Jack ! Jack ! Rose ! Rose !" thing.
As bad as most people think the 1953 "Titanic" is, I think the "Gifford-Annette" romance angle was handled much better and more realistic than the 1997 version.
I have a suspicion that maybe James Cameron got the idea for the 1997 movie from the 1953 movie and embellished it a bit.
I can relate more to "Gifford" than I can to "Jack".....LOL
