Titanic Alternate Ending

This isn't a joke--I was wasting some time on the Internet and stumbled across this ending--and I have to admit that I like it, but it's far more didactic than the ending we saw in theaters. The theater ending leaves us guessing a bit, but this ending spells out the "lesson" of the story. I can see why Cameron went with the ending he did, but I like this ending, too.

Then again, sometimes it's appropriate to leave readers (and movie viewers) free to sort through their own impressions so they can take away their own lessons.

P.S. Turn your volume all the way up!

Take a look:

What did you think?

Yes, more didactic but I like the original. Very interesting thanks for sharing.

Makes me want to watch the movie again. It's been several years now since I've seen it. I have to agree I think I like the movie ending better.

Definitely liked the movie ending better than this alternate one. The dialogue here is just too pat. I almost expected the old lady to say, "so children, what did we learn from this?" Lol

It's sad to think the woman who learned the value of life over things could only envision heaven as returning to a dead ship in a dying body; no glorious Jesus anywhere.
