Having the "Titanic" Discussion

Parents of the world, I hate to break it to you, but if you aren't already well aware of the obvious, I guess I'll have to tell you....

There will come a time in your child's life, when they might start asking questions about the movie Titanic. Are you going to be prepared for that day?

Will you be prepared when your twelve year old daughter asks to rent it, and claims that all her friends have seen it?

Will you know what to say when your sixteen year old son expresses concern about just why exactly Rose threw the Heart of the Ocean into the sea? How is he to know why this happened if he can't see the film, is what he'll wonder.

It's okay if you're not ready for these questions, and teenage impulses. We'll get through the love for stupid movies together... no matter how many times they re-release them.


  1. Know how they make so many crappy video games after movies? How come there's no Titanic video game? You could be Rose, a courageous, young, ax-wielding, door hogging, woman. The goal would be to survive, and kill everyone who gets in-between you and your life boat, and once all the life boats are gone, the battle continues for life vests, and floating doors. Or maybe the video game makers, unlike the movie makers, decided it would be in poor taste....

  2. I'd play that game. You start the game just sneaking your way towards a lifeboat but each time you level up you unlock new weapons. At 4th level you unlock the fireaxe! your final boss fight would be against Leonard Dicaprio's cold dead fingers!
