Worst TITANIC Movie


OK, we have a thread for the best TITANIC movie, so now, let's go for the WORST!

In my view, the CBS miniseries (TITANIC) with George C. Scott and Catherine Zeta-Jones is about the WORST I have seen thus far. I really get rankled because First Officer Murdoch is made to look like a complete and utter incompetent. I mean if he'd been like that in real life, he'd never have made it onto a garbage scow let alone the decks of TITANIC. In short, he is made to look as if he's trying to be a serious contender for "Developmentally Disabled Merchant Officer of 1912"!

My rating? Four thumbs DOWN!!!!

For once, Lights, here's something we're in complete agreement about. emoticon And that is, the 2-part TITANIC miniseries totally stunk! emoticon

I refused to watch that mini series, so I can't comment on it. My worst Titanic movie is the 1955 version "TITANIC" with Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb.

Also, if you count fictional movies based on "TITANIC", then I would add "Raise the Titanic" to my list.

I have never even seen "Raise the Titanic". I have the book and never even read it either. I think I really just wanted it to add to the book collection. I guess with the movie I am really not missing anything, huh?

The only saving grace of Raise The Titanic, is the scene where Titanic breaks the surface of the ocean after being raised. That scene alone was worth the $10.00 I paid for the movie.

Really? Well, I might have to have a look see just for curiosity sake! Any ideas where I can find a copy of the movie?

The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
