Just look at that emotion in their eyes!
Clearly the titanic is an incredibly accurate movie besides the obvious things like Jack and Rose and the coração of the Ocean. There are some other fictional parts as well but I think James Cameron had good reasoning behind his additions. If Cameron wasn’t so accurate with most parts of the movie like character’s appearances, the ship itself, evacuation processes, passenger’s actions and reactions, language, música played on the ship, and even actual footage of the wreckage underwater, then I wouldn’t think his inaccuracies would be appropriate. But they are. They just give the film so much mais meaning. They make the audience want to stay and experience the voyage for that whole 3 hours. And also while the audience is captured for the 3 hours por the inaccuracies, they learn a lot about the Titanic’s accurate story. The obvious example of Jack and Rose is only used to reel in viewers to a amor story and make the movie mais interesting and emotional. If the coração of the ocean wasn’t made up, Rose wouldn’t have had a reason to tell Brock and his crew her story, hence tell the story of the Titanic. Also during the beginning underwater footage scene, the set-up of the elegant white mask was clearly staged. That couldn’t have been sitting on the ocean floor so perfectly eighty-four years later. Cameron just wanted to captivate the audience right from the beginning. Makes sense right? I personally think he is the most genius film-maker ever to live. Maybe I’m being a little bias because I could watch titanic 4 times every dia for the rest of my life and still feel like that’s not enough, but still. If he wants to make a few things up in his movie, then I say go for it! After putting in so much time into the incredible, accurate details, he definitely earned his credibility from me to do whatever else he wants!
