veryone liked this movie. I can't see what all the fuss is (was) about. This was one of the most critically acclaimed movies of all time, and I hated it.
I don't really need to explain the plot, because everyone has seen it. But for those of you who have not seen it, here's a synopsis:
An old lady says she has this diamond some guy (Bill Paxton) is looking for that supposedly went down on the Titanic. She tells her story.
Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) wins tickets to go home on the infamous title ship. He meets Rose (Kate Winslet) and is immediately attracted. She is, however, engaged. They become friends after a while, and spend time together although Rose's fiancee and her mother won't allow it.
A bunch of stuff happened, and after about two and a half hours something happens in the movie. You guessed it: I left. My girlfriend stayed and told me the rest. Turns out I missed some good stuff. The ship hits an iceberg, and will sink, which the entire world knew previous to this movie. The rest of the movie has nothing to add to the old story. Thousands of people died, some were saved. Jack froze after telling Rose to live her life and not give up and stuff. She was saved from the water and lived until the end of the movie after telling the story of her diamond.
What I don't understand is why an old lady would go into such detail. I can't tell you three and a half hours worth of information on something that happened last year even. Also, half of the stuff in the movie has absolutely nothing to do with the diamond. There were some likeable things in the movie though. Kate Winslet was really good in this. So was Kathy Bates as Molly Brown, someone who is supposedly famous today, though I've never heard of her. And that's all I care to remember about this waste of time. I'm probably too late with this information, as you've probably already wasted your time seeing this.
