at last the truth is out! we all knew it anyway Kate...!

Yeah, the bitch could of shuffled over and made room.

Yes. Rose was a selfish bint.

Kate obviously hasn't watched Mythbusters' re-enactment. Yes they wouldn't have drowned, but they'd totally have died of hypothermia (unless they McGyvered Rose's life jacket under the raft for additional buoyancy).

It's a good job he died or she'd be fed up of him constantly calling "Rose!" every six seconds as he did throughout the entire film....

I always wondered why she didn't budge up for him.

pah. 'I'll never let go' my arse.

Still, it would never have worked if he had made it.

What about the weight of two people. Wouldn't the weigh of both people on the board allow for water to come over the board? This would definitely lead to hypothermia.

grin or she would have got fed up of saying "Jack" all the time.

"Jack, no. Wait, Jack. Jack, I couldn't possibly!"

"Jack. There's a boat, Jack. Jack..."

I'm glad I'm not the only one that irritated! 😠😀

They could have taken turns. The moving about would have kept them warm.

"Ok, you've had 15 minutes. It's my go."

They'd have died of hypothermia regardless of how much water was on the board. They were already soaking wet from having entered the water, and the air temperature alone would have killed them given they were in wet clothes.

I agree with a PP. The relationship would never have worked out long term anyway.

Cynicism aside, I have to say I still cry every time I get to the scene when Rose dies and enters the restored Titanic to find all the people who had died before her waiting for her applauding.

I always feel a bit sorry for her husband - the one that she eventually married. He must have always been second best. sad

Anyway, how beautiful was Leonardo DiCaprio in that film?!

If she hadn't jumped back on board from the lifeboat, he could have had that raft to himself.

true, and then a second movie could have been made of them finding each other when reaching shore. She could have gotten married to her husband and then they could have had some sort of duel over her....

... we could have followed her epic journey across America where she did all these things her grandaughter talked about. I'd watch that movie (if it was a little shorter...)
