I mostly picked this movie because I did wtb while watching the Oscars and this movie, while it ties in both categories, it is the only one to show up in both most wins and most nominated. It was nominated for 14 oscars (tied with All About Eve) and won 11 of them (tied with Ben-Hur and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King). I picked Titanic since it was in both categories and also because I haven't seen ANY of the other movies (I know, shame shame). The other reason I picked it is even though I only saw it one time, and even though hearing the name of the movie leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth- I actually enjoyed myself while watching it. The love story part of it never appealed much to me, but everything else was really cool. By everything else I mean the ship stuff. It really was awesome. I just wanted to remind myself and everyone else of that fact.
The winner this week was Alex! He got it rather quickly after the first quote. Congrats Alex- that was a good win. Next was pops, he got it yesterday after the shadow of death quote (that line still makes me shiver. GAG.) B got it next followed by Dan. Matt made a real valiant effort at 3:30 this morning and wrote, "pirates?" Haha. I was impressed that you even tried, you usually won't bother if you are pretty sure you aren't winning. Anyway, I figured that deserved some props. Good job Alex!
