A truly great romance and disaster movie all rolled into one. Leonardo at his best plays a poor boy headed for America who catches the eye of a very rich beatiful Kate Winslet. It has two very strong plots one of romance and one of survial. There are many heartstopping and heartbreaking moments in this film that will leave you wondering if you would survive in the frigid waters after the sinking of the Titanic. It is a beautiful film with a sad story to tell , one of undying love that lives long after the credits roll.

This film provided the breakout role for Leonardo DiCaprio. It also focuses on the ill-fated maiden voyage of the luxury liner that hit a massive iceberg and caused many people to drown.
The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy

The epic “Titanic” is James Cameron's 1997 Oscar-winning love story about what might have happened aboard the 1912 doomed ocean liner.

On an underwater salvage mission, Brock Lovett (Bill Paxton) and his crew find only a nude female sketch instead of the $300,000 necklace they were seeking. When centenarian Rose Dawson-Calvert (Gloria Stuart) learns this, she steps forward revealing that she was the subject of the sketch.

What follows is Rose's first-hand flashback to that night, as Cameron masterfully recreates the ship's smallest details. We learn the contrasting values of an ill-fated love affair between an unhappy debutante (Winslet) and Jack Dawson (DiCaprio), an ordinary artist who won his passage in a card game. By the time they hit the iceberg, we are rooting for Rose to remain with Jack and leave her dreaded society life behind.

The review of this Movie prepared by Angry Jim Magin

In April of 1912 the biggest, most beautiful, and "unsinkable" luxury liner in history took its maiden voyage from Britain to the U.S., struck an iceberg, and sank. Writer-director James Cameron wrapped a technically awe-inspiring recreation of this historic event around a fairly quotidian love story about a fictional heiress, betrothed to a wealthy cad, who falls in love with a poor artist who won his ticket to steerage in a poker game. DiCaprio and Winslet are all right as the leads, and the huge supporting cast includes Bill Paxton, Frances Fisher, Ioan Gruffudd, and David Warner. Gloria Stuart, who plays the heroine at age 101, had appeared in 42 films in the 1930s and was 86 when "Titanic" was made. Some of the dialogue is bad, some of the acting excruciating, but the spectacle is unparalleled and unforgettable. Some footage of the wreckage of the actual ship is included in the opening sequences. This 1997 film won 11 Oscars, mostly in technical categories save for Best Director, Best Song, and Best Picture.

The ship was on its way to America and hit an iceberg. Loads of people died most of which were 3rd class.
