Oh, and yeah, I was one of those teenage guys who hated it because all the chicks loved Leo ;D
Ahah, at least you now recognize it, ahah.
Well, I think the movie had such a huge success cause it’s a popular movie. It’s a love story and a drama, the actors are great, there are both poor and rich characters who are on the road of the american dream, plus the Titanic is a famous historical even (history is alwas a great deal to make audience), plus the movie is really pleasant to watch because of the perfect directing and cult music. Plus it’s an epic movie and the biggest it is, the bigger audience you can get.
Plus the success of the movie is due to the whole coverage of the movie even before it was release. Everybody knew there was gonna be a movie on the Titanic and that the director (for non-american audience and not movie geeks, his name wasn’t that famous) has a lot of financial troubles. Plus everybody knew before the release about the CGI effects which weren’t that commun in movies.
