Titanic 1997 Review
This movie was breathtaking and inspiring. My new favorite! The love story goes deeper in meaning than any other. In some ways this movie is also a tribute to the power of memory and means so much more than is seen on the surface.
The cast was well picked, I cannot think of any actor or actress who would have played the roles better. James Cameron did an impeccable job of being detail oriented when it came to the true events that took place in 1912.
Additionally, the movie was so well done that while watching, it feels as though you are transported to the actual event. I have watched this movie at least 12 times and it still makes me cry and seems new each time.
