This quote is probably one of the most moving lines from the movie “Titanic.” This was a captivating yet realistic movie, based on a tragedy that occurred in 1912.
This movie goes above and beyond the expectations of a movie, especially in the time it was made. Even to today’s standards, it is said to be one of the greatest movies ever made.
Over the holiday season, it might be one you may want to be again or for the first time.
This movie was made by two major production companies, 20th Century and Paramount, it also cost $200 million to make. James Cameron, the producer of the film, was inspired by the discovery of the Titantic in 1985. He hired top of the line special effects for this movie, and was the most expensive Hollywood movie at the time of its release.
The actors who were hired for this movie were definitely looking for their big break. Leonardo DiCaprio had done a few television appearances and co-starred in the movie “Romeo and Juliet” before “Titanic.” Kate Winslet also had a few acting jobs before starring in the “Titanic.”
Despite the obvious romantic fairytale going on throughout the film, it was actually quite accurate to the appearance and sinking of the ship. James Cameron took pride in this movie and did great amounts of research to make sure things like the ship and how such a tragedy happened were accurately portrayed in the film.
In fact, real blueprints of the original ship were used in constructing the version Fox used for the movie. They also got titanium cased cameras to go into the 400-foot bow of the ship to see what the rooms looked like and what kind of chandeliers were used in the dining areas.
This movie won a record of 11 Oscars including for best picture, and today still remains second as box office king, right under Cameron’s “Avatar.”
The movie, as a whole, was a great film. It kept the audience on their toes and it was a great performance. Although some parts of the tragic love story were unrealistic, it made it all the more heartbreaking when the ending that everyone was expecting became a reality. This is a classic film and was even re-released recently in 3D to show that is still a movie that will be looked at with great pride. The “Titanic” is loved by millions including me and is a great film to see during the holiday season, either with family or that special someone.
