I was flipping through channels this afternoon when my upper cable channels went out right in the middle of NYPD Blue which I wasn't watching anyway. Well, I stumbled upon the 1996 TV version of Titanic on Lifetime and immediately began jumping up and down. Peter Gallagher!!!!! Yum yum yum yum YUM! I'd never seen this version before (or if I did, I don't remember it) Molly's character was slightly more annoying than the Leo Titanic movie's version, which is sad because I always liked her... but otherwise, I enjoyed this version a whole lot more. Not only was there Peter Gallagher in the studly love interest role *swoon* but Catherine Zeta-Jones (who I can take or leave) and George C. Scott as the captain and lovely lovely Tim Curry doing what Tim does best- being devious and evil. Ooohhhhh LOVED! Honestly, there's very little I love better than an evil Tim Curry character and this one was oohhhhhhh! *laughs madly* I LOVED! SUCH a strong cast!
It was interesting, though. I was MUCH more into the personal stories and love stories in this one. Much more adult and realistic(not so young and foolish and Hollywood. Ick.). Made me think that the people who did casting for the Leo one knew exactly who their target audience would be- annoying teenage girls who would go see the movie over and over again. And they certainly struck gold with that there. But the version I saw today captured my interest SO much more. Adultery, rape, theft, divorce/women's rights, religion, stolen identities, tension within the ranks... oohhh yes. MUCH better. And the sets were so beautiful and the special effects were great- certainly equal with the 97 movie to me. And my Jack and Harold got a little more screen time! LOL I loved Jack's "Shut up!" to the Californian. Would have liked more of an ending, however. I wanted Bella to leave her husband and run away with Wynn to Bolivia (and, er, survive, obviously)
Mmmm Peter Gallagher... *nuzzles his bushy eyebrows* Yes yes. I liked much much!
On a completely random note... I had a dream about Stan Kirsch last night. He was having a yard sale, and I was drooling over the yard sale sign... and then he was telling me what I should buy. There was some Highlander book he had and was selling for $12.88 that I was thinking of buying. Yeah. Can you tell that Season 4 just came out on DVD yesterday and I'm dying to buy it but have no money? :-) heehee
Boyfriend wants to get chinese tonight. Wish they had more vegetarian stuff. *sigh* I just need to move out of bumfuck is all. :-)
