    Seriously, na you dey miss. You sit through all kinds of junk and you avoid something that's actually well made just because its been praised too much? Babe, you confound me o. Anything by Cameron is not to be missed, period.

    Yes, but you don't know how. The truth and fun is in the telling, the effects so naturally hidden they do not look like effects, the sound of people screaming and that ship ripping in two, the frustrations of human courage...Watch the movie. WATCH THE MOVIE! Seriously, did I say it was a Cameron movie? He spends like 10yrs planning an average movie, TM. That kind of work deserves a chance. That aside, the guy has the number 1 and number 2 grossing movies of all time. The same one guy. If you like Avatar, you will like Titanic. Take your medicine like a woman and go watch it jo. You will give me a kiss later (I hope Supermom is not nearby o!).

    I was referring to the original version, I won't waste my time with the Hollywood version, don't know why Hollywood felt the need to remake a movie that wasn't that old...I bet they probably bastardized the movie like they did with their "Death at a Funeral" remake.

    I have yet to see Titanic in one sitting. I saw the part where she was gonna jump and I did want her to jump but nooo she had to be saved. Then they're on the ledge...-sigh- Cameron is great at what he does, he is. But I'm gonna need some serious willpower, suya, kilishi, buns, plantain chips, chin chin and malt to get through it.

    And I did not like Avatar. I was not going to watch it until my school dumped us in the auditorium and has us watch it. All I kept seeing was the Native American saga play out all over again, like a Pocahontas movie for grown-ups

    I haven't seen the Hollywood version myself yet...As per "Death at a funeral" I wasn't feeling that movie at all I got it on DVD, waste of money...I didn't even know Hollywood copied it!

    I'll do even better than that...I'll write you a book of my own sonnets composed especially for you...You'll find William Shakespeare's sonnets amateurish compared to how I'll woo you, wow you and win your heart..:D :D :D
