Cameron is a genius at instilling narrative dread and designing a hokum-drenched fairy tale of a certain size.
Michael, your idea of what makes terrible writing versus great writing is beyond me. No film could ever do as well as Titanic if its all about visuals. Did you see Sucker Punch? Did you see how much money it made?
And you're actually going to trash the ending, where Rose is desperate to save herself on account of Jake and her promise to him, just 5 minutes earlier??
To me, everything from when the ship actually starts sinking to the final credits was almost poetic in timing and delivery.
You need to take some more film study courses. Jesus.
