I disagree with the assessment "everybody" loves Titanic. Chicks may, guys don't. I hate it, but that's far from being a minority.
Movies I hate that everyone else seems to love:
Gangs of New York
The Shrek movies
Pretty much every modern animation movie besides the Toy Story series (Happy Feet, Shark Tale, Ice Age, etc., etc.)
Romeo + Juliet
The Fifth Element
As Good as It Gets
The Transporter I and II
A Beautiful Mind
Saving Private Ryan
Catch Me If You Can
Road to Perdition
The Green Mile
Toy Story Trilogy (okay he just does a voice but whatever)
A League of Their Own
I mean he definitely has some stinkers (ladykillers, money pit, dragnet, splash, joe vs. volcano etc) but these are great movies.

You need to get ahold of the ten year anniversary DVD and watch the original deleted ending. And watch it with James Cameron commentary. Its just a big WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING JAMES!!! He actually thought it was a good ending.
Synopsis: Old lady stands on the railing with diamond necklace in hand. But instead of throwing it in Bill Paxton comes running to stop her thinking she is going to jump and the whole crew comes out. She then gets off the railing and holds the necklace over the railing threatening to drop it as if its some kind of hostage situation. Some how she convinces them that it belongs with the Titanic but Paxton is allowed to hold it in his hands. As he holds it he laughs like a maniac into the sky, she takes it back says some BS dialogue about treating people kind and whatever and then tosses it over the side....
I watched it again with Cameron's commentary and he said that he didn't know why studio didn't like the ending, he thought it worked...what the fuck was he smoking? Quite fucking hilarious.
Wow, glad to see that somebody else on this planet besides me doesn't give a flying fuck about the most over-rated comedy of the '80s!!!
...and "True Romance" I remember my old roommate told me that that was actually his favorite movie, which I thought was really fucking strange...
Speaking of over-rated '80s comedies, what about Ferris Bueller's Day Off? I mean it's actually a fairly decent movie, which is a lot more than I can say for Raising Arizona, but I saw it so many times I just got soooo freaking bored with it...and everybody else still thinks it's the shit. I don't care if I ever see Ferris Bueller's Day Off again, but seriously FUCK RAISING ARIZONA!!! Normally, I'm more respectful of other people's opinions but just thinking about that movie FUCKING PISSES ME OFF!!!!! AAAAAARRRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
I liked Titanic, but that might just because I've always been obsessed with the ship and it's story, and I love pretty much anything to do with it. Well, that was until I saw Titanic 2...
I Put it to you that the film has nothing to do with the story of the titanic, the movie coulda been called Boat and it woulda made no difference, it was a 90's Chick Flick that happend to be set on the titanic. nothing more.
[QUOTE=oxley;2174276]I'm no massive Leo fan, but he has done a few films I really like him in Titanic, Blood Diamond, Gangs Of New York and Shutter Island. Apart from those (that I've seen) I don't like the guy.
You should see him in the Basketball Diaries.
I think he is a consistently great actor.
