Kate was never that hot (and looks like DiCaprio’s mother in that film) and having to sit through the soapy and melodramatic love story for a few disaster scenes...

Just kidding but imho Titanic was much more than that. It was a very believable and engrossing bringing to life of 1912 society... the last months of a world bound to go under during and after WWI. The best "fin de siècle" portrayal out there. A lot of what caused Europe (and later the US) to sleepwalk its way into the war is similar to what led to to the death of those 1500 crew and passengers. Also I think the consistency in which this movie keeps showing up on "best" lists even on the most male dominated fronts shows that for many people there was much more in this than "love" (or that aspect was simply done too well to be rejected).

 

Imho there is a lot in there... the brillance being that it is possible to just watch it as a romance and/or a disaster movie at the same time.

Wait, what if this actually made that love story, not less, but more appealing???
