#934. Titanic (1997)
Why It's In The Book: "With a reported budget of over $200 million, even before its release Titanic was given the dubious honor of being the most expensive production of all time. Much of the cost went to a six-month shoot in Mexico involving a 775-foot replica of the famous boat, which sank when it hit an iceberg back in 1912. it was a shoot dogged with problems - including delays to filming when the cast and crew were poisoned by PCP-laced food in Nova Scotia. Rumors that Cameron was a crazed perfectionist emerged. His attention to details included hiring the original companies that provided the real Titanic’s furnishings as supervisors so that every chandelier and plate was a perfect replica. But, following the film’s stupendous box-office success (more than $1 billion worldwide) and the most Academy Awards (11) since Ben-Hur (1959), he was rechristened a genius, and is now deservedly considered one of the most successful directors of all time. Cameron’s vision is half Poseidon Adventure and half Love Boat, as both romance and deep-sea disaster are explored in equal measure… A blockbuster if ever there was one, Titanic made a superstar/teen heartthrob of DiCaprio. The film boasts one of the biggest-selling soundtracks of all time – a number one hit for Celine Dion with the theme “My Heart Will Go On.” In terms of production size and sheer epic scale, Titanic remains one of the most impressive films of all time." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Alyson - 10/10
"Too many times, James Cameron has been a huge pain in my bladder, but I will say that Titanic is his masterpiece."
Adolytsi - 9/10
"The film is so much more intimate and shot on a smaller scale and lens than a classic epic would otherwise be instantly recognizable as. Nevertheless, the scope and power and length of the film gives away its true intentions."
Jay Cluitt - 8/10
"As soon as the Atlantic ocean decides it wants to come aboard and everything starts taking place on an ever increasing incline, the ensuing carnage, death and destruction should appeal to anybody with a penchant for disaster movies."
Movie Guy Steve - 8/10
"The actual sinking of the ship is what you pay your money for with this movie, and it does not disappoint."
Nicolas Krizan - 7/10
"the overwhelming pathos and sheer grandeur of this mammoth production elevates rather than sinks"
Siochembio - 3/10
