That's great, first fill an hour and a half with a mix of heavy romance and social satire (you can choose: poor versus rich, egalitarian versus elitist, democratic versus aristocratic, sensual versus anemic, loose versus stiff, spontaneous versus formal, beer versus cognac, a "sapphire" versus a cigar, raw-husk-white-pit versus egocentric, in short all the virtues of the Irish-American free spirit versus old money of the Old World), and then a slickly-imagined disaster in which the boys can enjoy the spectacle and the girls once again see that true love conquers all (well, almost everything). The visual effects (the sailing ship, the iceberg) have certainly not stood the test of time (or did it look so fake twenty years ago?), but the flooding and chaos are still impressive, and the film as a whole works like a well-oiled machine that deposits the viewer exactly where Cameron wants it. Class. (Number 2 on the current list of the highest grossing films of all time, and also in the list of the most successful American films of all time with "Adjusted for Ticket Price Inflation" revenue, he is in fifth place, while [i]Avatar[/ i] –number 1 on the unmodified list– as it is "only" in 15th place.)

“I'll never let go, Jack. I promise.”

Titanic is the first movie I saw in theaters, and it was overwhelming at the time. Even though I knew how things would turn out, I was drawn into the blossoming love between Rose and Jack, and the fate that would befall the Titanic. The Titanic itself still looks amazing, and the special effects (and practical effects) still impress. Craftsmanship by James Cameron.

DiCaprio and Winslet impress, and they manage to turn Jack and Rose into characters that still capture the imagination today. The chemistry they have together is still unparalleled. Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bernard Hill and Victor Garber are also doing great. Cameron opts for a frame story, with an elderly Rose telling a group of scientists about her adventures and tribulations. The last part with the sinking Titanic is impressive, and Cameron pulls out all the stops. Spectacle, drama, tension, personal suffering, sacrifice and romance come together perfectly here.

Although this titanic film is not perfect, the film – unlike the ship – stands up effortlessly and remains more than captivating throughout its length. The story of the Titanic is well known, but the film beautifully weaves together the tragedy of this historic event as a spectacular disaster film with an adventure film (on a double level because it tells a story within a story), a romantic film and even social commentary where everything comes together in a climax that brings together survival and sacrifice and is both tragic and heartwarming. The film is an outstanding classic and has certainly earned its immense success.
