Hm, "Titanic" or LOTM....well, being two years younger than Eric Schweig (what a man), I've only seen "Titanic" six times, but I'd like to go again, as many times before it's shelved to video. I wasn't fortunate enough to see LOTM on the big screen; we were stationed in Japan, and it wasn't highly promoted over there. What I love about both of them are these reasons: talented acting, strong characters, a sub-plot just as good as the front story, a terrific supporting cast, the soundtracks (in regards to "Titanic," I'm a BIG James Horner fan - have been since '82), and attention to details (costumes, props, makeup, historical accuracy, effects - sound/special). "Titanic" also allows me the time to enjoy myself on the RMS TITANIC, without actually having to drown; while LOTM allows me to pine away for Uncas and Alice, without them ever getting to kiss. :( But another reason for me to enjoy "Titanic" was the British officers: Murdoch, Moody, Lightoller, and Lowe. Anytime they were on screen, these were the guys to watch, even if (*sniff*) they were in the background. I don't know, I just love to watch "secondary" characters (who IS that blond working with Wes Studi, in "Heat"?).
As for Daniel Day-Lewis or Leonardo DiCaprio, right now I'm just bored of DiCaprio. Day-Lewis never gets overexposed, so he's always fresh to watch.
Of course...these are just MY opinions. :p
