Whether or not jack could stay on the debris with rose, him not being able to made for dramatic effect and an emotional ending. We all no in real life we would have tried way harder to stay alive and on the debris but how good has a movie ever been when the people actually act like sane individuals.

April....middle of the night....freezing cold water....1912 - yeah why didn't Jack think to take off Rose's life jacket tie it around the board and then get onto it so the majority of their body could be above water until rescuers came. Geez - stupid Jack and selfish Rose! #Not

Jack would have definitely survived had Rose not been a problematic, nonsensical girl she was and just gotten onto the lifeboat and STAYED THERE! That way Jack would have had just himself and his life to care about and he would have fought to live just like he had to fight for Rose to live.😒😒😒

Wasn't the door bigger than that and jack and rose were smaller so the turn out for them would've have been better if it were jack and rose but we all know they weren't really trying in the movie it's like they had no schooling.

'TannaKota' 2 weeks ago
I definitely think it could have turned out differently and Jack didn't have to die... But there are a lot of things to take into account. The situation here is drastically different than the one in the movie. It was nighttime, they were in the sea surrounded by a ton of thrashing panicking people and noise, they were exhausted, the sea was freezing, they were _scared,_ and they were seventeen-year-old kids. Having likely never been in a crisis situation like that before, and being given no time to prepare themselves beforehand, they acted in the only way their clouded minds could come up with. There were totally a bunch of alternatives that could've happened. They could have done things that might have seen them both saved. But sadly, we're not gifted with ability of foresight, and the poor things just couldn't think deeply or logically under the stress of the situation. I think their combination of youth and inexperience was their death sentence here. And maybe their lack of a degree in science. *shrug*

Rose killed Jack when she jumped off the life boat onto a sinking ship! Jack could have survived on his own, if he didn't have to worry about Rose's safety.

'J&Fnation101' 3 weeks ago
The titanic didn't hit the iceberg the iceberg hit the titanic it was moving quick and the bottom of the iceberg that's underwater hit the ship and it started to sink from the bottom, The titanic did not mean to hit it because they thought they would be just fine. once that happened the people who shoved the coal at the bottom ran to the doors and hit the switch to keep them out the water, One guy got stuck and his leg got caught in the door allowing water to come in. Then that allowed water to get to all them and kill the people at the bottom of the ship. The titanic was tipping upwards causing people to fall in the water that's how most deaths happened. People hurried onto the boats. almost 3 boats got hit by the ship and started to sink. How I know so much a lot of video's and research.

So many doors on the titanic ... could've just ripped one off for himself. Or all that time running around the sinking ship, they could have found something big enough for the both of them!

It would probably help if they both went on, because the body heat of the person next to him

If Rose stayed on the lifeboat, Jack would have had a better chance of survival: He would have got the door, he would have been rescued on the lifeboat and then they would have been reunited on Carpathia a few hours later.

Amy Jade Music

I get the point of this "theory"... but if you think about the situation that they were in, they'd been running around for about 2 hours trying to get to a lifeboat together, and even longer before that being chased by the security, so they would've been pretty tired. Also, they had been clinging to the top of a sinking boat with so many other people. Obviously it would've been hard to find that door when everyone wanted to find something to stay afloat on. They would've already been in the water for some time. Hypothermia could act quick. Another point to look at on this is that the water that the two men in the demonstration here is not the same place that Jack and Rose were in, and so making the circumstances different. If you put them in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean after been chased round for 4 or so hours, maybe I would've been able to believe this but you know, maybe not the most practical of things to do to test a myth. Anybody agree?

As it is an interesting topic to think about whether they could have both got on, the movie wouldn't be the same. They made it like that not only to make us cry, but to keep the audiences attention. Most people probably wouldn't be satisfied if they both lived because it wouldn't be as interesting. And the whole story probably wouldn't have happened. They both would've live and probably would've sold the diamond, leaving Mr. Lavott and the others not even knowing about them. An also, if you want to do this test correctly, try doing it in 15° sea water exhausted af. 😊

People who focus on how big the raft is and how two people should have been able to fit o it are focusing on the wrong part of the movie. Earlier in the movie, when the lifeboats were being filled with women and children, Rose got on a lifeboat, then jumped back onto the boat. The same person who a lost jumped off of a floating ship a few days earlier is now jumping back onto a sinking ship. That may have seemed romantic in the spur of the moment, but had she not done that, Jack would only have had himself to take care of, he would have been floating on that raft and the passing lifeboat would have saved him.

Could I point out that this test was conducted in calm water. They need to recreate similar weather conditions of that morning. If Adam & Jamie had more waves in that water, then they would not be able to stay on that piece of board.

Luke Rollingson
'Luke Rollingson' 2 months ago
Would you really have a time to think of this though, I mean you just went down with a ship, you'd be panicking and shaken up! Given the circumstances, you're in the middle of the Atlantic ocean at night time, people are crying and screaming which would distract you, freezing water temperatures would make limbs numb and therefore unable to move. So in that moment in time Jack just thought mainly about Rose because he cared so much about her and wanted her to be safe. That aside this is pretty ingenious! :-D
