  It'll be interesting to see if they ever advance to incorporating grime....
  I was in love with Titanic when it came out.  Well, also simply in  love with Leonardo DiCaprio. *cringes*  I tired to rewatch the  film last year and couldn't get through more than half an hour or  so.  The dialogue -- or rather lack thereof -- is what threw me  off.  Being an amateur historical costumer, I may have to watch it  on mute just to soak up the beautiful costumes.
