A Post About Titanic, The So-So Miniseries Everyone Hated (Except Me)

It's the Titanic! But why is it so tiny? It was huuuuuuge in that James Cameron movie!

I just rewatched Titanic, the miniseries that aired worldwide on April 14 and 15 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Written by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, the four-part series offers a new take on the event from its many predecessors. Fictional and historical characters from every early twentieth century social class are depicted in a series of interweaving stories. Continue reading

Winslet and DiCaprio Reuniting

I think I said “fantastic” about twenty times in 15 minutes today. Whatever, I only had 3 hours of sleep. But this really is FANTASTIC.

Titanic stars DiCaprio and Winslet reuniting

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) –

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who played ill-fated lovers in the 1997 smash hit Titanic, are reuniting for a drama about postwar disillusionment, the DreamWorks movie studio said on Friday.

Revolutionary Road will be directed by Winslet’s husband, filmmaker Sam Mendes, who won an Oscar for directing 1999’s dysfunctional family drama American Beauty.

The DreamWorks project, based on the 1961 novel by Richard Yates, revolves around a suburban couple caught between their hopes for a life of art, culture and sophistication and the everyday drudgery of boring jobs and domesticity.

Revolutionary Road is considered a master work of modern American literature, and was named one of the top 100 novels of all time by Time magazine.

Titanic is most definitely not one of my favorite movies. But I like Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio enough that I would see Revolutionary Road.
