4. 'Titanic' (1997)

Oh, pooh-pooh to all cynical bullies who try to sink this "Titanic" with insults — it will go on (and on) like Celine Dion's yearning heart. "Titanic" deserved every Oscar it won (a record-tying 11) and billion it earned (more than two, if you count DVD sales) and more. A perfect combo of delirious romance and heart-pounding action. OK, the dialogue is sometimes lame and so the script was rightfully ignored by Oscar voters, but, come on, poor Leo DiCaprio deserved a nomination like costar Kate Winslet got!
