AHHHH Titanic, one of the major classics on screen, and the still 'going-on' debate whether Rose had room on that door or not?!
If you are part of the population who loves a romance, with a few tears, as well as a young Leonardo DiCaprio on your screen, then Titanic is definately a film you will enjoy.
Titanic is one of the most famous tradegies to occur causing the director James Cameron, to have the pressure on highlighting the the world the horrible tragedy and historical events which occured that awful night in 1912.
DIRECTOR: For a good movie, calls good director, and James Cameron is certainly a good director. With the stress of showing the emotional aspect of this occurance, Cameron provided a memoriable and amazing tale of two lovers of different classes, wanting to spend eternity with each other rather than with their apparent family. The use of flashbacks made this film so moving and memorible whislt seeing Rose aged 100, (the present) and to the past (1912)
ACTORS: The use of actors within Titanic provides an amazing and emotional atmosphere for the audience watching the film. With the talented acting of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, what is there to hate about it?! Kate's acting is devine, highlighting her aristocratic life with her elegant gowns and stunning appearence. Whilst Leo's role is much more layed-back, due to him being noticed as a 'poor guy', thus contrasting with his romantic interest. The acts of the class system is shown to see higher and lower class being divided, however Kates character Rose, and Leo's character Jack go against this and find love in the weirdest of places - a massive ship.
SETTING: The setting and effects used are amazing! Notice the intricate details which the creators have placed into the scenes. I was able to watch the behind the scenes of the film, in which the creators informed of the detail of making the settings look exatly the same as the real titanic which tragically sunk in 1912. The delicateness of first class gives the atmosphere of pure wealth and power over the lower class, who are seen to be in rooms like a square, two bunkbeds and nothing more.
COSTUMES: As a member critiquing films, I believe costumes is to be one of the main aspects which creates the atmosphere in which the film was set - if for example they were wearing hoodies and adidas shoes in this film is wouldn't be realistic - however, the designers inflicted their knowledge on past higher and lower class fashion back in the early 20th century. The black suits with black ties showing men as the dominant figure, with the higher women wearing elegant gowns and fuffy hats highlighting purity and delicatness.
THEMES: The overall theme for this movie is LOVE, a tragic love story left with the audience in tears and inpity. As well as providing a desire for both men and women to have on how their relationship would be.
SOUND: The non-degetic sound in my opinion proivide the most emotion, with Celine Dion's song of 'My Heart Will Go On,' even when used in an instrumental way, left my heart shaking and feeling faint.
MEMORIBLE MOMENTS: There is flashbacks of the video footage of the real life titanic, this moment creates a flood of emotion for the entire audience as it puts into account the real life event which took place, and that this movie was based off of such a tragedy that it is shocking it truly happened.
