2 hours, it was too long as it is!93%
3 hours was enough.239%

5 hours, but only if there was an intermission.187%
6+ hours, I want to see every detail and I don't care how long I have to sit there!16870%
    Some comments:
  • James Cameron should have had an uncut version. Some of the scenes he left out would have given the veiwers an even better idea of what was happening.
  • How sad are you if you want to sit there for 6 hours watching Titanic?
  • It depends on what scenes would be in it... more sinking scenes (please no more!) or more "jack and rose" scenes (shooting star scene!!)
  • Titanic is so beautiful, I could see it forever!!!
  • I could watch "Titanic" almost all day.
  • I have watched the movie 9 hours (3 times) on one day
  • about 7 hours max would be about right
  • Titanic was great, but it could have been longer. I wish it was.

August 2000

Do you believe that, deep down,
Cal really loved Rose?

Yes he certainly did.9326%
No, he didn't know what love meant.19054%
    Some comments:
  • I voted for b because I truly think that if he loved Rose deep inside he would've let her follow her heart to Jack.
  • I believe that Cal THOUGHT he loved her, but was uncertain of what love truly meant.
  • Insufficient development of Cal's character to tell one way or the other
  • Hitting someone is not love nomatter which way you look at it
  • He didn't realize his true love for her, until he had really lost her. (When the ship started to sink)
  • Rose said it all when Jack was going to sketch her picture that "she didn't want to look like a Porcelin Doll" she knew she was only used as a trophy
  • He really did love her. He just couldn't show it because who he was. You can even see it in his eyes when he tries to look for her on the Carpathia.
  • I dont think he loves her. Jack really loves Rose, he saved her live. I think Cal hated her at last, because he tried to shoot her!
