As TheGloss celebrates regrets week (send your regret filled stories to Jennifer@thegloss.com or Ashley@thegloss.com in 600-800 words) we’re thinking about a few movie endings that we profoundly regret not being made. Like these:
Okay, there’s very little love for Titanic at TheGloss, but maybe we would have felt differently if the movie featured characters having a full on mental breakdown. Like the original ending!
Instead of Old Rose having a private moment where she drops the Heart of the Ocean into the sea so it can… be with Jack again… she does this in front of everyone. To be fair, she does it after master treasure diver Brock Lovett has smoked a cigar and decided that he never really “got” Titanic. I guess what he meant is that he never “got” that people actually “died” on it and that was “sad.”
In any event, Old Rose explains that the only important thing is “making each day count” and that is why she is going to toss the jewel everyone was looking for over the railings. And the only sane character in this scene replies “that really sucks, Lady!” And that is now how the movie ends in my head.
In reality, Lovett has a complete mental break and begins laughing like a supervillain. Fair. Watch him go!
