What a pleasant surprise this was.

I decided to watch last night, really not knowing much about it. What a fantastic story. It does run a little long, but well worth it. It's one of those "epic" movies that has a little of everything. Funny at parts, romantic, action, etc etc. What else can you ask for. Not really sure why ratings on this movie arew so low. Rottentomatoes gives it 54%. I actually think there is lots of Oscar worthiness to be found here, but I guess it was just not well recieved by the Academy and by fans in geneeral.

For what it's worth, I liked it and highly recommend for those who like this sort of stuff. Although the setting is very different, in many ways it reminded me of Titanic (in it's scale) and in other ways.
