The following movie review is provided by a professional academic writer from a short essay writing service which helps students with academic writing. Watching a movie is a pastime that plenty of people across the world really enjoy. While many people prefer to watch their movies on the big screen at the cinema, advancements in technology enable us to stream movies at home or on the go. The cinema, as well as our mobile or tablet devices, have made it easy for us to see some documentaries and stories portrayed on screen.
Personally, the cinema is the place to be when it comes to watching a movie due to the big screen and amazing sound. The one movie that stands out in my mind, as well as the minds of many people that I like most, is “Titanic”. This movie does not only tell us what happened on 15 April 1912, but it also features some of the best actings I have ever seen.
It is a captivating and incredibly produced movie that is seen as a classic till this very day. Many people across the world have heard of this movie in some way shape or form because of its historical references. Released way back in 1997, James Cameron’s “Titanic” is a movie that successfully tells an emotional love story of two people who bumped into each other on board the ship.
The story follows lovebirds Jack Dawson, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Rose Bukater, played by Kate Winslet. The ship was sailing from the south coast of England, heading to America. Jack and Rose come from two very different social classes but nothing stopped their love from blossoming.
Jack comes from a very poor background and is a struggling article while Rose is a beautiful woman married to a rich man who does not her. This movie brought to life a relationship that is present in this day and age. It is possible now for a young lady from a wealthy background to wed a man who comes from a poor background if they love each other so much.
The movie proves that love can indeed be found anywhere in this world, even on a ship as big as the Titanic. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet had amazing chemistry which is clear to see especially when they shared screen time. One amazing moment in the movie is when the crew on the ship are drawn to the two teenage lovers making love.
By diverting their attention to them, no one is paying attention to the ship and it hits an iceberg. The horrible death of over 1500 people onboard the ship as well as the efforts to save as many people as possible is what makes this movie amazing. While the ship is sinking and Rose on board a life board with her mother, she decides life cannot go without Jack and jumps back onto the sinking ship.
When they two love bird eventually get united, there are no lifeboats left on the ship and passengers are dying all around them. As the ship falls apart, Jack helps Rose get on a wooden panel that can only hold one person to prevent her from drowning. In one of the most powerful scenes ever captures, he tells her she will die an old woman and Jack pays the ultimate price at the end.
He dies of hypothermia for being in the cold icy water for too long thus sacrificing his own life and saving Kate. Seeing and hearing Kate say “come back, come back” to Jack knowing her lover has passed away is one of the most emotional and touching scenes I have ever seen. It is a scene that not only brings tears to my eyes but the eyes of everyone who watches it play out.
You cannot help but feel for the poor lover especially Jack who loses his life. The reason is you become emotionally attached to Jack and Rose, their love story, their rebellious nature and to see a tragic ending like this is heartbreaking. A lot of credit has to go to the actors, writers, director, composers, and producers of this amazing film.
The script, the music and camera angles were all on point and tell a story that is experienced today. It comes as no surprise to see that the movie was well received by both critics and fans when it was released. The Titanic was a ship that cannot be sunk according to various allegations and not even God could sink it.
What I love about this film from the first time I watched it is I wanted to know if this is the case. Is the Titanic really a boat that cannot be sunk by God or any other force of nature. There are not many movies out there that can captivate an audience the same way that “Titanic” has. This movie is a timeless classic, a masterpiece and has a special place in my heart.
It is till this day remains one of my favorite movie ever made and the 5th highest grossing movie of all time in the USA and Canada. The movie has won 4 golden globe awards for best original song, best motion picture drama, best original score, and nest direction. It was nominated for an amazing 10 BAFTA awards however, it didn’t win any which came as a surprise to many people.
