As a formal debate, not a typical argument, WHY, is this film so bad?
I thought the cinematography was really nice, acting was pretty good, ok the storyline was a bit predictable, but it was still good.
There was certain things I liked, for instance when Jack is telling Rose how they've got her trapped and stuff, how she's basically being pressured to marry Cal, purely for the money.
So it did have a bit of depth to it. It wasn't just that Rose was going out with Cal and then decided to go off with Jack, boat sinks, Jack dies, sad ending e.t.c. e.t.c.
Titanic was a huge hit when it came out. People loved it. I never actually saw it at the cinemas, but I remember people coming out of the cinema that had just watched it in tears but also smiling.
But then about half a year later it was the fashion to slag it off, Leonardo Dicaprio went from the dream man to an ugly loser for girls. And naturally, everyone copied. So most people will now say they hate Titanic. Oh... Funny you loved it at the time.
