Titanic Essay, Research Paper
Movie Review Name: Title of Film: Titanic Director: James Cameron Leading Actors: Kate Winslett and Leonardo DiCaprio Supporting Cast: Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, and Frances Fisher Year Released: 1998 Titanic is tragic love story. The film took place on 1912, on the famous ship Titanic in the Atlantic Sea. In the film I found the dialogue believable because in the film they talk differently and more in depth then how we talk today. The plot starts in a England city called Liverpool, that s where Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his friend win in a card game and won them selves a trip on the Titanic. When Jack was on the Titanic on a late night he saw a girl attempting to jump off the back of the ship kill her self. Jack convinced her not to jump and found out her name was Rose (Kate Winslett). Soon after they got to know each other they feel in love. Rose s Future husband successfully missed every shot at Jack. Just before he went on a shooting spree why ll the ship was sinking, he place his jacket on Rose and the wedding ring was in the coat. Soon after the ship sinks, Jack dies and Rose lives. One scene I found effective to the movie was when the ship began to sink and everyone flood the main floor of the boat. This scene had great acting and directing. I thought the cast could have been better by using famous actors, but the acting it s self wasn t bad. The cinematography was incredible with all the different scenes and angles they filmed from. The costumes were great considering it s the late 90 s and they used clothing from the early 1900 s (1912). They played the music great for each scene and that made the film that much better.
The theme of the film was to take risky chances, like the card game, which Jack won. The director did a very well job of making Jack play the card game. The movie was intended for an older audience such as twenty-five and over. There was scene s kids shouldn t see such as when every one was died in the water. The major strengths of the movie were the acting, Cinematography, theme, costumes, and the special effects. The major weakness about the movie was it was to long. The end would never end in my opinion and that was the major weakness of this film. Some relevant points were about it was that the movie was realistic and the plot was well thought out. One thing, If the iceberg was that massive to break hole in the Titanic wouldn t someone of seen it. Other Points The type of film I d pay to see is a comedy film or action movie with a lot of action occurring. I never seen Titanic till it came out on video so my mom could buy it and then I could watch it for free. The way I would decide to go pay to see a movie would be if I seen the preview of the movie and I thought it looked good. The second way I would see a movie was if a friend convinced me, that I would like to see the movie.
