I've decided to post one trailer per day until the Academy Awards this coming Sunday. The subject of these films? Ships of course!

I could not think of a better way to launch this than with the arguably most famous of these movies - 1997's "Titanic" starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. It ultimately won 11 Oscars and was the highest grossing picture of all time until 2010.


  1. James Cameron knows how to make money.
    I've got some ideas of other great ship movies but I'll wait to see what you post.

  2. I'd still like to hear some of your ideas...perhaps you'll have some films I missed.

  3. I like that you got Poseidon Adventure, but two greats I would have on there would be (though they're not ocean liners) "Das Boot" and Alfred Hitchcock's "Lifeboat", which is one of my all-time favorite movies.

  4. I tried to find a trailer to "Lifeboat," but was unable to. And while I love, love "Das Boot" it's not directly connected to ocean liners. Otherwise I definitely would have!
