I think the perceived backlash against Titanic was the product of a few things:
the massive budget that felt excessive or self-indulgent, the oppressive
marketing campaign, and the fact that James Cameron had previously written
Terminator and Aliens -- male audience members wanted a high-octane action flick
and got a romance. It's not a bad movie but it borders on "chick flick"
territory, which people resented.
