JACE LUGINBYHL– GRZEXP.com

The RMS Titanic, the most luxurious and expensive ship in the world in its time. With a gymnasium, grand staircase, and an indoor swimming pool. The grand ship was completed on April 2, 1912. Then the day came, after four years, the Titanic was ready for its maiden voyage. Although everyone was excited, it ended with everyone scared for their lives. At 11:40 P.M., the Titanic struck an iceberg and about three hours later at 2:20, she sank completely.

The Titanic, 1997 film, was based on the tragedy of the real RMS Titanic. It was written, produced, and directed by James Cameron. It took 160 days to make and it was released to theaters on December 19, 1997. This movie took 2.1 billion dollars to make but once you do watch it, you will think it’s worth it. The most popular actors and actresses on the set are Kate Winslet as Rose and Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack. If you look closely in the background in some scenes, you can see James Cameron in his own movie! Everything starts when Rose starts boarding the ship and Jack and his friend win a ticket in poker. 

As the movie progresses, you can tell the difference between the two. Jack wears scrappy clothes and sleeps in one room with three other roommates in third class. Then, looking at Rose, if it’s clear, she has a rich family and friends including her fiance, Caledon. She wears fancy clothes and sleeps in first class. Leonardo Dicaprio once stated to the New York Times, “Throughout this movie set, James Cameron always made sure that the movie is as accurate as possible and we liked it. He would even make changes to the set and actors because it was too modern.”  

I don’t want to ruin the movie before you see it if you haven’t, but if you have seen it, you have your own opinions. The romance and drama movie is liked by 96% of people who have seen it and it is often described as breathtaking. If you do get to watch it sometime, try finding the mysterious James Cameron in some of the scenes.
