Titanic………..

The movie snobs will tell you that Titanic was the worst movie ever. They will tell you that it was nothing but a “simpering story of love.” So, what’s wrong with love? Did they really expect a documentary? Context was needed and Cameron gave us that. It was a beautiful movie. I own it and will watch it time and again.

I loved the movie Titanic but then again I have always been taken with sea tragedies. I had the great fortune to have sailed across the Atlantic 7 times, and three of those times the sea lanes were those traveled by the Titanic. This, I say, was an adventure. Sadly, I was too young to appreciate the significance.

The day will come when I will travel, in April, from Southampton to New York. I am old enough now to appreciate the journey of those who lie at the bottom of the sea, and I will send my good will to them, each and every one.

    Well you know me. I love everything Victorian. SO seeing Titanic, with its fantastic set design (accented by the presence of gorgeous Billy Zane) was enjoyable once.

    BUT the horror of watching the doomed third class ticket holders lie down to await certain death on their beds with their little children was not worth any amount of saccharine romance.

    Even so I might have been able to watch it again- if only for the scenery- were it not for the shrieking of that anorexic frog princess!

      For Mike a new look at the movie itself a couple different ways. You are correct, it probably won’t be the same for you now.

      This one will take you to parts 2 and three if you are so inclined. I know, I should be ashamed of myself, I’ll work on that in the next hour or so, let you know how that works out 🙂
