Okay, before I start, I love the MOVIE Titanic, by James Cameron. I brought this DVD by mistake and ended up liking it. It really is a good movie/mini-series. It pales in comparison to the movie, but it is very enjoyable.
It is very down-to-earth. It has a more realistic take on the whole disaster. It dosn't just show you one random love story between two strangers, but a more varied plot-line.
However, It is kind of confusing to follow but overall, 8 out of 10.
(P.S. The cast is great, especially Tim Curry & Marilu Henner....all of the cast gave amazing performances)
