I wish this movie had gone to the bottom of the Atlantic - My kids are watching "Titanic" right now and - I have to ask - is there a worse movie to win "Best Picture"? The characters are so one-dimensional they wouldn't leave a shadow. And, sweet Jebus, the hackneyed ending with the necklace. Any one of the movies it was up against was better, especially "The Full Monty" and "LA Confidential."
All I can say by way of consolation is that the Academy saw their error and denied James Cameron a second Oscar for the equally-awful "Avatar."
For the record: "Goodfellas" was ripped off in favor of "Dances with Wolves" but that movie made "Titanic" look like "Citizen Kane." There, I said it.
