Every night in my dreams / I fear for / the memories / of just how bad James Cameron's / script waaaaass...
We're closing out our Best Picture winners series with the much-beloved, insanely expensive and wildly successful Titanic from 1997. David's never seen this movie, and Diana saw it 6 TIMES in the theater. In what has to be one of the most bizarre movie experiences of all time, this may be the worst dialogue in one of the best-directed movies we've ever seen. This is a visual masterpiece, but don't expect to be wowed by the dumb love triangle with ultra-cheesy lines. We're all in on the technical trivia, the sheer charm and charisma of Leonardo DiCaprio, the ridiculously awkward performance of Kate Winslet, and a laundry list of Oscar nominations. Hold on to the rails as we dissect this movie like the iceberg sliced the Titanic.
After that, we talk about Game Night. It’s hilarious. It’s a movie. Go see it!
LATER THIS WEEK: Oscars Special!
