Five Minutes o TV: Titanic January 26, 2009

It’s a shame this movie is three hours long and full of nothing happening. I understand the need to build up an attatchemtn to the characters, but you gotta know when enough is enough.
Regardless, between college hoops and hellboy I caught the last hour or so of Titanic. I forgot how sickly good a few of the scenes are. The band playing until the end, the mother telling her two children a bedtime story as the ship is making it’s final plunge, the officer shooting people trying to get on a lifeboat. All of these are fantastic scenes forgotten at the end of the longest movie in the history of movies.
Mad props to Cameron for making more money than ever thought possible on a movie this long, and for crafting some truly brilliant scenes. It’s sensational his ability to bring tears to someone’s eyes in five minutes. When something is done right it’s done right and you don’t need any expostion. Just the five most emotional minutes of a movie burried by hours of leo and kate dancing, drinking, shagging, and fighting rich people.
Most thanks to the NFL for having a week before the Superbowl with nothing on TV. God knows I’m not watching this trash if I can have nineteen hours of pregame coverage.
