Wayhomer Review #140: Titanic 3D

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio from Titanic

From the previously unpublished Wayhomer archives, it’s Episode #140 for Titanic 3D, in which our protagonist revisits a review he did fifteen years ago, is pleased with Cameron‘s ability to rock 3D like few others and basically defends the film that Celine Dion tried her best to ruin in the pages of history.

P.S. I have no idea what the hell is up with my beard in this video.

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

    When is this coming here? I really need to see this.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio is being touted as the star of Beat the Reaper, for which the rights have been sold. Here’s the scenario from the article: “The protagonist in the novel penned by Josh Bazell is a Manhattan emergency room doctor, whose life becomes complicated when a mobster recognizes the doc from his former life as a hitman who went into the witness protection program.” Look, how am I supposed to have any sympathy for a guy dumb enough to try to hide from the mob in a busy hospital emergency room front and center?
