10. Titanic

Leonardo DiCaprio somehow still didn’t win an Oscar for the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. “Titanic” tells the story of Jack and Rose, who fall in love despite a gap in social class. Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” was made popular by the song’s feature in the film. We all know how this ends, so find a shoulder to cry on if you plan on watching this drama all the way through.
