I love learning about the history of the Titanic. I liked the movie because of that. DiCaprio’s acting in the movie was pitiful, I thought. And the love story itself didn’t flow well between DiCaprio and Winslett. I didn’t believe it. And in a good movie you forget that they are acting and you simply fall into the story. That never happened for me.

Some movies I just don’t find him believable in, because of his boyish looks. Other films he pulls off with more skill. I don’t really understand why people think he is so accomplished because I don’t see it.

It reminds me of an interview I saw of Lauren Bacall. This would have been about ten years ago or more. She said that there are only a handful of male actors that are of the quality of Humphrey Bogart in America. At first I didn’t believe her when she said that. I thought of all of the actors that I thought were good. And then upon reflecting more I realized that she was right.

She only named two accomplished male actors... DeNiro and Pacino.

The Aviator and J. Edgar are astonishingly good (when viewed in terms of what Modern Hollywood puts out and I am talking the Big Budget stuff where its all fluff and effects) DiCaprio really nailed Hughes and Hoover in those movies.

I think the problem was at the time DiCaprio had the body of a ten year old girl. He just didn't fit the part of a leading man in a Love Story.
