titanic rant below

it is NOT about the ending, don’t worry.

So, I thought I should make this clear.

Contrary to popular belief, Titanic is NOT my favorite Leo movie. It also isn’t my favorite movie in general. It is not in my top five nor my top ten favorite movies. 

Don’t get me wrong — I love it. It deserves every award it got and if definitely has earned its place in the box office. 

But I’m not in love with the movie. I will not talk about it constantly, and I definitely haven’t seen it more than three full times. If someone doesn’t like it and doesn’t think it’s worthy of what it’s earned, I won’t argue and try to defend it. I’ve only seen it three times in its entirety, anyway. Once when I was younger, once on TV when no one was home so they wouldn’t yell at me for watching it, and once in the cinema when it came out for its 3D showing. I’m mostly making this post because my mom bought me two giant Titanic posters today. I really love my daily fill of Leo, but I don’t need Jack Dawson’s face — TWO of them — covering my wall when I could fill that space up with posters of movies I personally like better. My family thinks I’ve watched the movie over ten times but every time I try to tell them I haven’t, they don’t believe me, and it’s like I have to constantly remind them of the fact that every time I want to watch it, they don’t let me because it’s too long, depressing, and I’ll end up sobbing and pissing the house off. 

Anyway, that was my rant for the day.

By the way, for anyone who was wondering why Titanic isn’t in my top ten fave movies or whatever, it’s because I love these movies more:

  1. Inception
  2. The Dark Knight Rises
  3. The Day After Tomorrow
  4. The Dark Knight
  5. The Avengers
  6. The Departed
  7. GoodFellas
  8. The Artist
  9. The Prestige
  10. Catch Me If You Can
