I have not, to date, seen the movie Titanic from start to finish. What little I have seen didn’t work much for me. The dialogue was terribly cliche, and I like good dialogue. Essentially, it isn’t my thing.
YouTuber Nerdwriter, someone I used to post here rather regularly, likes the movie.
Essentially, Nerdwriter admits the movie is a melodrama, but that’s the appeal. He has some explanation about what a melodrama is and why we shouldn’t dismiss it out of hand. He can see it better than I can. See below for his explanation.
