    "Every time I watch Titanic I cry my eyes out. It is such an immersive and compelling love story and you so want Jack and Rose to be together. Her fiance is a perfect obnoxious robber-baron villain, and the era is magnificently reproduced in this stunning movie that is sure to be a classic for generations."
