In these few weeks, we saw “Avengers: Endgame” has been passed “Titanic” in box office, so I go and search the top 10 highest box office of all time, I saw the only romantic movie on the top 10 list is “Titanic”, so I decided to go back to watch this one of the most classic movies of all time.
It is hard to find a people who didn’t watch this movie yet, this is definitely a must watch movie in your life, and it is been a long time since I watch this movie, but it still the most beautiful story, and this time, I have a very different feeling, I feel about not just romantic, but the other thing.
Tied Up by Identity
We will always want to be rich, we want to go to the fine dining restaurant every day, meet the senior person, sit on a yacht and private jet, however, for some rich people, it didn’t feel that good at all, same as Rose DeWitt Bukater, her father owe a lot of debt, so her mother forcing her to marry the rich man, Rose to live a noble life since she was born, and that becomes a bind.
Jack Dawson, on this luxury cruise by gambling, he wanders around, he has no place to live, just when you think he is poor, while he is happier than Rose, a woman who has a lot of money and lives a luxury life, so why we dissatisfied with our current life? Everything we did is to make our happy, so why we must pursue wealth and prosperity?
When Rose doesn’t want to live, Jack saved her, but Rose mother and fiancé didn’t like Jack at all, just because of his identity, people always get tied up by identity, not just for itself, but also the other, when other people look different from you, we always go first to reject, why?
We are the only animals on earth that will reject the same race.
Experience becomes dangerous
Like what I said, I have a different feeling about this movie, not just for Jack and Rose, because we all know, the main event in this movie is Titanic shipwreck, and when we talk about that, we need to talk about the captain of Titanic.
Edward John Smith, who has 26 years experience on the ship, in the movie, when Joseph Bruce Ismay, the chairman of White Star Line wants the Titanic to accelerate, Edward think even is really meet the iceberg, he still can react quickly, so he accelerates the Titanic, eventually caused disaster.
Also, the lifeboat is not enough at all, there is no precaution before they set sail, enough to see everyone’s confidence in the Titanic, and arrogant, take precautions to be the best way to do on everything.
Sometimes, we think experience will help us and always the right, no, that’s not right, for example, you being a staff for a long time, yes, you have a great experience on being staff, but when you have a chance to promotion, you can’t think as a staff, you need to think in a different way.
Even we have a long experience at one thing, we still can hear some suggestions from other people, no matter what their position is, the smartest people be the people know how to listen to any suggestions, and don’t be restricted by experience.
We talked about a lot of things about humanity, like in our review “The Dark Knight”, we already know when the disaster happened, people will show the ugliest side, same as when Titanic is about the sink.
At first, when staff member giving life jackets to everyone, nobody care about, no crisis awareness, and suddenly, they found out thing about going worst, all the nobility want to go first, they didn’t care about women and children first or not, they didn’t care there is some lifeboat is not yet full, they want to clean and a lot of space, the scene becomes chaotic.
When Jack is locked in the basement, Rose tries to call for help for everyone, but everyone ignores, nobody cares others one except themselves.
But these are also some nice people in this chaos, some people give up the seat for children and women, the band playing music just to relax everyone’s mood.
Crews are trying so hard to save everybody’s life, but because of the chaos, they become angry, leading to more unnecessary casualties, but they still attentiveness to duties.
Human beings are selfish, that is nature, hard to change, but still, we still can see that faint light, still can see the love, love is powerful, it changes everything.
My Heart Will Go On
With the stunning movie, it also needs a stunning soundtrack, and they did it, one of the greatest songs in movie history, the lyrics cut the chest of Titanic, this tragedy and the love story, Jack and Rose met for about 2 days, but Jack took Rose to a world she been never, Rose put aside the bondage for the first time in her life, this song is very touching, every time I heard this song, my mind flashes every moment of this movie.
This movie will live forever in my mind, and the history of the movie, very original romantic, I recommend you should bring your lover to watch this movie together! That’s the movie you must see in your life! And even re-watch!
