Before anything else, we want to thank Holly for this awesome suggestion. This week we are talking about the 90s classic, Titanic. This film was huge when it came out, having a long successful run at the theater. It was the largest grossing film of all time until Avatar (another James Cameron film). It won 11 Academy Awards out of the 14 it was nominated for (eat your heart out Joker).
We share our thoughts on this cultural phenomenon. Val talks about how she wanted to be like her same name director, James Cameron, and Jake talks about his first job at the movie theater, right in the middle of Titanic fever, and Tracy talks about working at the video store and getting in trouble with parents for renting it to kids.
Oh, and we talk about the movie too. It was a technical marvel, with solid acting and a good story. It was deserving of all the critical acclaim and all the hype of the time. This was a passion project for James Cameron and comes across in the film, as well as all the work we has done since the film to help with research for the actual Titanic.
And if you listen real hard, you’ll hear a fun listener contest. Val has some prizes and we want to see your awesome “King of the World” pics. Listen hard, and we will explain how you can win.
