Titanic

Bad dialogue, great drama. It's difficult to remember that in the fall of 1997, all the rumors and advance gossip was that Titanic was going to flop- the movie was over budget and behind schedule. All the extraordinary lengths James Cameron went to to build a full-scale ship set in Mexico? Half the reason I went to see it the first time was to see how big a disaster it really was.
