Episode 53 - Titanic (2/2)

In Part 2 of our discussion about Canadian madman James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster film "Titanic," we go through the second half of the movie, which essentially feels like a different picture than its first half.

Where that half was a fruity love story, this part is more of an action film. This is clearly where most of the budget was spent in all of its freezing, flailing, falling and frantic frenzy. 

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jack Dawson, a penniless orphan vagabond who enjoys gambling, drawing nudie pics and ridiculing one-legged prostitutes.

Kate Winslet plays Rose DeWitt Bukater, a suicidal Philadelphia socialite who believes that being an unhappy rich girl is equivalent to being a slave.

Billy Zane plays Caledon Nathan Hockley, a violent and possessive rich schmuck with no taste in art who travels with a homicidal sidekick.

Bill Paxton plays Brock Lovett, an earring-clad deep sea explorer who gleefully scours the remains of a horrible catastrophe looking for treasure. 

Join us as we question topics like hypothermia, the whole could-they-both-fit-on-the-door nonsense, Old Rose's monstrous behavior, the cheesy alternative ending, and also: What we would do if we were on the ship while it was going down.
