Goofs

When the iceberg is spotted, the order is given on the bridge, Hard to starboard. This would have made the ship pass the obstacle to port, which is the reverse of what happened. The correct order would have been Hard to port. See more »

Brock Lovett: Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: [seeing the shipwreck come into view for the first time] OK; take her up and over the bow rail.

Crazy Credits

Although a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox, either one of the logos appears at the beginning: Paramount in the US version and Fox in the international version. Yet ironically, Paramount is mentioned first in the international credits while Fox is mentioned first in the US credits. See more »

Alternate Versions

The scene where Jack draws Rose, her nude body remained, but the sight of her breasts and two close-up shots of dead bodies floating in the water were removed by the Indian Censor Board, the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) with a 'U/A' (unrestricted public exhibition - but with parental guidance) rating. The cuts were restored for the 15th Anniversary release with the same rating. See more »

Despite a lot of plot flaws and conveniences, this really is one of the best films ever made.
3 July 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

Ah, yes, the film that propelled Leonardi DiCapro to super stardom, became the first film to gross $1 billion, and stayed on the top of the box office charts for 12 years (only to be kicked off the top by another James Cameron film, Avatar).

It is said 'Titanic' is the film with the most continuity errors of all films. Despite this, though, the film was indeed a masterpiece. The sheer scale of the sets and entire production were simply mind blowing! The sinking of the Titanic was the greatest ship sinking scene EVER and was done with such meticulous detail that one would think they actually really sunk the ship. Off course, that was not the case, though, as it were all (very elaborate) sets, most of which were destroyed during the making of the film.

Leonardo made for a very likable hero, quite frankly one a lot of guys can relate to. The young lovers were so different and yet so alike, and their love story was almost endearing. I must admit, the jumping backwards and forwards in time was a bit unnecessary and resulted in an overlong epic. They should only have told the 1912 story. Apart from that, the film was thrilling, exciting and fascinating in every sense of the word!
