No. 10 – Titanic (1997)

Written by: James Cameron

Directed by: James Cameron

Starring Kate Winslet, Leonardo Dicaprio, Billy Zane, Bill Paxton, and Kathy Bates

Titanic mainly focuses on the plot of Jack (Dicaprio) and Rose (Winslet), two strangers who fall in love in the midst of the ship’s journey from Southampton to New York City. Rose is engaged, and rich, while Jack is poor and by himself. Yet, the two grow close after a suicide attempt by Rose and fall in love as the ship nears its ultimate fate.

There probably aren’t too many of you out there who haven’t seen Titanic at least once in your lives. One of the largest box office films, as well as critical successes, of all-time, James Cameron’s epic retelling of one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century is a movie before its time in terms of scale. The final ninety minutes of this three plus hour film are tremendous in terms of the way Cameron is able to capture every detail, historically accurate or not, of the ship’s sinking, as we see the panic and despair from multiple perspectives and the people aboard the ship face the reality of their peril.

It’s also a great movie for some of its more memorable scenes, including one particular part towards the end of the film in which a particular individual won’t let another particular individual aboard a floating door to save their life, and that second particular individual dies because of it. It’s extremely important you watch this scene so that you and your friends can collectively agree that the first particular individual could have totally moved over on the floating door and saved the other’s life, but that is a discussion for another time.
