Trivia

James Horner additionally wrote the song "My Heart Will Go On" in secret with Will Jennings, because James Cameron did not want any songs with singing in such a dramatic film (which he likened to "ending Schindler's List (1993) with a song"). Céline Dion agreed to record a demo with the persuasion of her husband René Angélil. Horner waited until Cameron was in an appropriate mood before presenting him with the song. He liked it during the first playback, and after playing it several times, Cameron declared his approval, although worried that he would be criticized for "going commercial at the end of the movie". Cameron also wanted to appease anxious studio executives and "saw that a hit song from his movie could only be a positive factor in guaranteeing its completion". See more »

User Reviews

James Cameron's Titanic is a masterpiece and a tour de force of filmmaking
13 October 2018 | by patriciaanistonSee all my reviews

Titanic is world famous. The film that broke every box office record on release and wore the box office champion crown for many years(until it was overtaken by Jim Cameron's Avatar) is special because not only does it showcase the Titanic disaster in all its glory the film is a technical achievement of the highest order. The sinking sequence is astonishing and it feels like you are watching the actual ship sink. The characters and actors are amazing and even with a large running length you never dare look at the watch. James Cameron is a master director and Titanic is his stamp of authority.
