It’s been ages since I’ve watched Titanic. The kids were asking about the ship itself recently and so we all sat down and watched the movie. It’s copped a lot of crap over the years and people seem to revel in dissing it… I don’t agree with them at all. I think this is a great movie that hits all of the right marks of a melodrama… and that’s just it, people seem to forget that it’s a melodrama. It’s not trying to be a historical biopic, although the details of the ship’s demise are quite accurate and the movie really needs to be approached as the sweeping, epic love story that it is. It works for me. The story of the Titanic’s voyage in reality is both romantic and tragic and this movie captures both of those things very well. And now that the kids have enjoyed a fictional account of it, next up is Ghosts Of The Abyss!
