How James Cameron Sank the Titanic

I didn't see Titanic in its first run, because I already knew how it ended- the boat sank. But watching the boat sink was a breathtaking experience. It was bigger, longer, and more dramatic than the audience's imagination could conceive, but not beyond James Cameron's imagination. He supervised every detail down to the shortest clip to ensure maximum drama while retaining plausibility. When you spend $200 million to make a movie, you don't want to leave anything to chance. Cameron made sure to get the most bang for the buck. (via Digg)

C'mon you guys. It's as good as any and better than most of the movies in the last 60 years. Terrible environment to work in for the actors and crew, and especially hard on equipment.

I feel sorry for Cameron, when people dismiss his life's work out of hand he has nothing left but his zillions of dollars.
