I suspect it was because Avatar's
I really liked Avatar, but not for a second did I expect it to win the Oscar.
I did think District 9 might have done it though.
Hey, you and me, we can be all unfeeling and cold together, especially if you pony up a decent Shiraz on the deck, lol.

America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.
then he dumped linda hamilton....
I just am not a fan of him...and I really resented when Titanic cam eout and everyone was all squee over it that I was told I was cold and unfeeling b/c I didn't love it...
Clearly. My post clearly expressed my opinion and made absolutely no comment regarding what others should do. That part of "my" post? Was all you. I feel no obligation to give people permission to see any given movie--I'm not quite that arrogant to suppose they need it. Or care. Particularly a full 10 years after the fact.
I'm sure I love movies that many other people would never in their lifetime be interested in watching. so what?

First I wasn't angry NOR defensive, LOL!
Why get angry and defensive with someone just because her taste differs from yours?
I must have missed the bit where the events of the movie Titanic actually happened. However, no, I didn't see Roots (although I've read bits and pieces of the novel), I didn't *see* Anne Frank, although, again, i've read the book (and numerous others, including the one written by Miep Gies). I've watched various Holocaust programs over the years, although I can't swear I've seen the specific one you referenced since there's a good bit of time during which I wasn't living in the US during those years.
didn't see Valkyrie since Tom Cruise was in it and I'd rather remove my nipples with a fork than watch Tom Cruise in anything.
Didn't see Perfect Storm, either.
I'm not a fan of fictionalized history. Sue me.
