Did they just have James Cameron in a short ass cameo? Did he say anything else during the actual episode?

Actually Jack faked his death because Rose is a natural bitch, he went to a boat, survived, and changed his name to Gatsby

To be honest in US movies there is a ton of much more ridiculous and against common sense scenes, like jumping and exploding cars every time they collide, fighting people which never get any bruises and other bulshit

No 1 he could of gotten afloat on another bord
no 2 Rose could of shared her life Jacket with jack
no 3 he could of jumped on with her

he didn't have to die, i suppose they really wanted us to cry

rhyme not intended😢

But did no one think that they were both freezing that causes tiredness, because it is hard to focus when you're in freezing waters, especially freezing water. They would have a hard time to build a life rat out of a painting or wood. Rose is not selfish, there is such things as a noble person. The length and width might have fit them both, but did you thought of the material of what rose was laying on, it may be a piece of canvas of a painting, but do you think it is capable to carry both of them if it was indeed, wood, did you think that they would have the effort to do what they need rather to do what they can?

But on the other hand, Jack wanted Rose to survive for him, so if he went onto the door that Rose lay on it would sink under their weight and they would lose heat quicker as the sea is extremly cold. So he didnt care about himself only Rose :)

That's not the point anyway.    Somebody would have been able to use the door if she hadn't left her lifeboat and jumped back on the ship.

I agree that there was space, but do you honestly think they would have come up with the idea to put the life jacket under the thing they were on. Plus even when Rose was fully out of the water she almost froze to death until the boat came. So if another 20 percent of the body was in the water well simply It makes thing more shitty. And also they would have to have a lot of attempts and by the time they got on the board they would both be dead!

And also, if rose didn't get off the lifeboat, jack would've been on the price of debree, still be alive, and they would both be on the boat that saved them.

it was not a physics problem; Cameron needed it to sell the movie.

We are talking about a movie based off a true story, There was a rose and there was a Jack, and there was a piece of debris that saved roses life ( im unsure off whether or not she recently passed away but she was alive for the filming of the movie ) But nobody really knows how large the debris was in real life, Jack Dawson passed away either way.
If the pilot of the Titanic had hit the Iceberg straight on, like he was supposed to, instead of trying to miss it, they all would have lived. Hindsight is 20-20.

you know if everybody that died broke of a door, they wouldn't be dead. but no they wanted to run around like chickens with their heads chopped off.

Just like the movie Sully, u have bunch of "experts" telling the pilot he made an error and run perfect computer simulations. But you have to take into account of the crisis situation and what they went through before hand, I think Jack did everything he could in that situation bcus he definitely wanted to live. A lot of deaths is avoidable but u always need to take into account of the surroundings.

Yeah but when your literally freezing to death you don't have the control of your body or ability to think enough to figure out how to perfectly balance on a door and position a lift jacket under it. Just saying a huge variable was not considered in this experiment.

i sort of feel like jack's junk would be frozen and dead by the time they got rescued
