Leonardo DiCaprio Refuses To Weigh In On Titanic Door Controversy

Just like Forrest Gump and just about every Harry Potter film, it seems James Cameron’s Titanic will continue to stand as one of those movies that some fans watch every, single time they catch it on cable TV. It’s not hard to see why – it has a little bit of everything. Action, a stellar cast, set-piece moments, a bit of comedy, and, of course, one of the greatest on-screen romances of our generation.

Still, for all the praise and love that Titanic gets, it’s not without its fair share of criticism. While a few critics thought the story and dialogue were nothing to write home about, a lot of the backlash comes from the fans, who take issue with how the ending played out.

For those who need a refresher, after the ship sank, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Jack Dawson, sacrifices himself to ensure that his love interest,

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 6 Review: The Little Prince

The Little Prince” marks a new low for Fear the Walking Dead.




This Fear the Walking Dead review contains spoilers.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 6

As far as idioms go, “jumping the shark” is a great way to mark a moment in time when something, especially a TV series, is no longer as cool as it used to be. This jumping of the shark can generally be traced back to a single episode, or even one defining moment. In the case of Fear the Walking Dead, that moment arrives in “The Little Prince,” as a hot air balloon shaped like a bottle of craft beer. A bottle of Augie’s Ale, to be exact. That this same hot air balloon crash-lands inside a radioactive hot zone could very well sum up the way this once-entertaining show is crashing and burning just six hours into its troubled fifth season.
