Yes, which is why I've never seen that film either :P

This film was based on information that had already been fed to the public - Hollywood wasn't trying to change history. Very few people are in possession of all the facts anyway. But it also wasn't a very good film.

I've seen U-571, it was really silly :roll:
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

My earlier rant wasn't about the historical inaccuracies, it was about the fact that the studio deliberately destroyed the reputation of a man with surviving relatives for the sake of a 2 minute scene in a film. They could have taken it out, but they figured they'd be better off financially if they just flew over to say sorry. There's a big difference between that (ethically wrong) and artistic license (more entertaining). Or am I the only one to see that? Hmm?


No Dots... thats exactly what irritated me. It was easily fixed. And they chose not to. The family have to live with it forever.

Has this cruel world sucked all the romance out of your bodies, leaving you just desensitized husks of your former selves? :?

I don't like the film at all. In no small part because the first officer William Murdoch, proudly remembered by his descendents as a man who saved the lives of women and children before going down with the ship, was portrayed as a coward who killed two passengers then shot himself. Instead of cutting the part out, execs flew to the hometown of his relatives to apologise. Filthy dirty money-grabbing bastards, changing history for the sake of entertainment.

Plus it was shite.

Now, I DO love romantic movies, especially if I can watch them by myself 'cause I always cry even for the not-very-good ones... but Titanic :roll:
I didn't know all that stuff and still didn't like it as well (now I like it even less if possible) because it is absurd, she taking hours to tell all the stories keeping to herself just the little bit about the necklace, and why, to keep it as her secret memory of her real love? to give it to the grand-daughter (I think) that cares about her? no, to through it into the ocean, that's a brilliant idea! cr*p is what it is.

Totally agree Crys.

Rubbish! The necklace scene DIDN'T go down very well in the theatre where I saw it... all you could hear when she did that was a murmer of .... "What??!!!"

:lol: :lol: I thought it was just our Aussie audiences.

I always thought that scene would have worked better if she was standing near the rail, the necklace in her hands, remembering........ :( when she accidently drops it and it falls slow motion to the bottom of the sea and she utters the final words in the movie as it fades to black......(ala Frankly my dear I don't give a damn Rhett Butler style)

........ BUGGER!

I think it would have been better, really, something like, I wanna die when you died years ago, closing on her jumping out of the boat, but of course not much better because anyway it's absurd that she succeds with noone noticing it and rescueing her.. :roll:

I thought the scene where he dies was pants.

Leo: I love you Rose! Oh god I am so cold. I am dying of hypothermia here! But I love you Rose!
Rose: I love you too Leo. I always will. Not enough to get off MY bit of wood and let YOU on so you can live... not that much... but I love you Leo! More than you will ever know!
Leo: I love you too Rose.... I can't feel my lower body... my hands are too cold to hold on... isn't there just a tiny bit of room on that wood? I mean can I just get on for a minute maybe?
Rose: I love you Leo! I love you! Oh my love never forget me as long as you live.
Leo: Yeah well thats about another minute or so at this rate...
Rose: My love! My love! Don't go! Don't leave me like this!
Leo: I haven't exactly let GO yet Rose... why are you prying my fingers off?..... glub glub glub glub

skyline, worst movie ever. Would have left but started a very entertaining popcorn fight with the kids two rows in front of us.
Never seen Titanic because Leo makes me queasy, best bit of the gangs of new york was when he got a monumental kicking!
A big boy did it and ran away..
