#45852, "RE: Titanic: The Final Word with James Cameron..... What do you think?" In response to In response to 23
I am ashamed to say this, but I feel almost afraid of watching some of the **** on TV and movies at the moment as I know I'd just get angry with it. Some of it seem to be junkets for political gain, some are simply cash-ins, despite protestations to the contrary but most of them are smeared with a liberal application of "poor research" grease smeared all over them. I am truly a man of great feelings and it breaks my heart to see something that should be treated with reverance and respect as just another cash-cow, or an ego-boost to certain members of the glitterati.
I made a conscious decision last year to give up on Titanic research, for good I thought at the time. I couldn't ignore the allure though. One of the things that truly hacked me off was the Len Goodman "Titanic and Me." Promises were made by them, much information was imparted to the researchers...and they broke all their promises. A case of "use you and lose you." Once you've given them what they want, they sure as hell jettison you in a damn hurry!!!!!
