Human beings have an insatiable appetite for sad love songs. We also love a good mystery. So just imagine our delight when these two treats combine to make a pop culture supertreat, such as "Who is the mystery man who inspired Adele's heartbreak album, 21?"
Titanic is still a splendidly powerful bit of moviemaking, one of the best films of the 1990s, and one of the best pure blockbusters of our time.
I was 23 when Titanic was released. I loved it. I loved all 194 minutes of it. To this day, I still love it.
