Re: Worst TITANIC Movie


Now Now, It's just drama. Everyone knows that films exaggerate things to deliver that sense of drama. I used to work in the film industry and there is a cliche that is heard over and over again, said by many different directors; "We're not making a documentery here." It's show biz, not history. The idea is to impart the suspense, drama, uncertainty, excitement, fear, hysteria, and all the other emotions and feelings, rather than an actual 'window into the past'.
All theater is an exaggeration...and this one is no different.
The bribe scene wasn't so much a slur on the officer as it was to be on Cal--the officer is never seen as too keen on it, but rather distracted by the whole thing. As for the suicide--it is well enough documented that an officer shot himself and a passenger as to be able to be put it in a drama. And my 'favorite' officer being kind of an inflexible martinet who would 'shoot them down like dogs' is shown with more hysteria than was real I'm sure, but he was inflexible--that's historical fact. So it was of course exaggerated (I thought well done too). And for the chase scene when the officer is pushed aside, again it is more to show the uncoolness of Cal and company rather than anything else--but authority figures can be pushed aside--who would stop them? Besides, the story has to go on.
Heavens knows there are a thousand large and small technical mistakes too--I've actually seen a list of several HUNDRED! (more than I could read) But the real thing is none of all of this...it is whether most viewers get the excitement and drama of being on the Titanic--and I'd say in this it was very successful. But in the long run remember...it's a MOVIE!
