Unthinkable movie about the unsinkable ship: ‘Titanic II’

‘Titanic II’ (2010)

What if I told you how excited I was, in my capacity as a fan of James Cameron’s Titanic (1997), to hear that a sequel has since been released? Well, you can forget about it, because it’s not an actual sequel but a stand-alone movie (or perhaps a mockbuster), and one that needs to suffer the same fate that struck its great namesake nearly a century ago. I repeat: This is a real movie, not some prank or high school film project. From low-budget, direct-to-DVD knock-off factory The Asylum comes a flick that definitely tickles my sensibilities, and not in a favorable way (other than mockery and derision). Everyone, meet Titanic II [video below the fold]:

You can read a little more about this turnip-of-a-flick on its Wikipedia page, though not much is available. I presume people either don’t know about it, or they don’t want to.

Okay, okay. In all seriousness, it doesn’t look that bad. Sure, it’s probably terrible, least of all when compared to its blockbuster namesake. But I can probably conjure up far worse titles, the sort that would make your blood chill, your heart stop and your brain explode. Maybe … The Room II?


Update: Coincidentally, the next post will be this blog’s 1,912th, for those who like irony.
