Cost: well over $200m. Disregarding the ethics of such expenditure on a film, this unprecedented extravagance has not resulted in sophisticated or even very satisfying storytelling.
cant imagine what's your ideal story for this movie

me too (agree with gocoming)

The ideal story would have focused on the lives of real people aboard the Titanic. There were certainly enough of them - including some very colorful characters in First Class.

i agree with gocoming,

Geoff Andrew is widley regarded to be a ostentatious ***. It's best to ignore his reviws.

I actually agree. it had a nice level of escapism missing from movies nowadays, but it just wasn't that satisfying.
and i know all films have some ideas from previous movies or books, but this was literally just "romeo and juliet" on a ship. I would really like to think that if it hadn't made so much money, it wouldn't have won all its awards.

you would like to think that but unfortunately for you thats not the case because if movies won awards based on how much money it made, the twilight saga would be taking over the oscars.

Nicole: No, they win awards based on how much they spent, usually. When it comes down to it, Titanic was not nearly a good enough movie to win all the awards it received. It was mediocre at best.

are u insane!!!!!!!!!! this movie is an alltime classic who cares how much it costs
Nov 21 - 06:01 PM
The film came off the cinemas more than a decade ago, and is still making money. It has made a total of $1.8 billion to date. Who cares that it cost $200 million to initially produce? This is the highest grossing film of all time - and it couldn't deserve that title more. It is quite simply breathtaking.
Jan 10 - 09:12 AM
i guess the almost 2 billion it made are from people who didnt like this movie. What a turd of a review. you suck!
Mar 24 - 06:53 PM
Couldn't dissagree with you more. My favourite movie of all time. I cry every time I see it- And I'm a seventeen year old male.

It doesn't matter how much it cost, it went on to be the highest grossing film in movie history by grossing $1,842,879,955 Worldwide.

The movie is simply Awesome ! Worth more than what was spent on making it.
Oct 30 - 09:14 PM
well, he is right, these critics are telling us that this movie went out of date. If you cant apreccaite other people's opinions of a movie that is frankly overrated, then you shoulnd post comments.

hahaha you're just jealous because jack dawson actually got a girl
Jan 15 - 05:14 AM
Cost means nothing if you make a profit, that's basic business. While the sappy (and a little too long) love story isn't my bag when it comes to movies, I understand why people like it. That being said, it was still entertaining.
Jan 16 - 06:12 PM
A movie that earned 1.8 billion dollars worldwide isn't satisfying or sophisticated in any way?? My ***.
Yet, one more pretentious critics who thinks great filmmaking can't cost a lot of money, no doubt. LOL.
Feb 5 - 02:42 AM
@Lukemitch25, If you think a film needs to be expensive in order to be good, you're an idiot.

I think many teenage girls would disagree with you views, Mr Geoff .. But I'm not a teenage girl. And I would agree with you, $200m to make a chick flick is a bit much.
Feb 19 - 11:57 AM
oh, really? this movie is only for teenage girls? sorry to say but i doubt that any "chick flick" could ever make 1.8 billion and i doubt that only teenage girls played a part to make Titanic gross that much in the first place.
Jul 10 - 10:29 PM
Naw It's not only for teenage girls, I was a little kid when it came out originally and i loved it. Oh and teenage boys will like it too. Titties!!
Apr 4 - 11:57 PM
You sir, are an idiot
Nov 15 - 04:29 AM
Why are you a critic?
Jul 24 - 10:42 PM
YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE THE MOVIE WAS POPULAR FUCKHEAD!!!! I'LL TELL YOU WHAT!!! IT ACTUALLY WENT DOWN BECAUSE SOME FAT BASTERD NAMED GEOFF ANDREW CAUSED THE SHIP TO GO DOWN AND KILLED OFF HALF THE FUCKING PASSENGERS!!!!
Oct 17 - 10:47 AM
Nice mouth. Your parents must be so proud.
Feb 27 - 07:32 AM
I mean i liked the movie too, but no reason to have a temper tantrum over it. It's just an opinion. Jesus H Christ take a chill pill.

You are what most would refer to as an arrogant self-claimed intellectual who has no clue what the word "Intellectual" (or for that matter 'intellect") means. :)-
I bet you $100 you are the type of guy who will vote against Obama just for the sake of having done something that is non-mainstream for the heck of it. :)-
