Titanic is a movie that has stood the test of time... and has one of the BIGGEST unanswered questions of any movie. No, I don't mean could they both fit on the door if Rose had just moved over a little. I mean the question is Jack a time traveler sent to make sure the Titanic sinks? Yes, that age old question. Well Theorists, today we are going to answer that once and for all!

  • Wow just one woman and cruise ship can change a big part in history

  • Alternatively: Rose is misremembering some of the things Jack said in her old age.

  • Uses battlefield 1 clips for talking about world war 2

  • Imagine being the real Jack in heaven rn and seeing this

  • Imagine being trapped in a room and nearly drowning to death, you escape and centuries later someone makes a video talking about it being time travel.

  • i uhhh... these are the videos i waste my precious time on

  • Hey MatPat, I've got a series that I'm SURE you can theorize about. Ever heard of Manifest? It's a show about a plane that mysteriously disappeared for 5 1/2 years, and no one can figure out why. It's a binge-worthy show. What I want to know is, what really happened to flight 828?

  • The oceanic select scully unpack because saxophone proportionally file apropos a elite example. filthy, erect number

  • A film based on true events Matpat: time travel!

  • Also, if the Titanic hadn’t sunk it would have taken much longer to create the safety measures in evacuation and rescue during sea disasters. It was because of the Titanic that all those overly arrogant and unprepared standards were abolished. So those lives lost led to the safer sea travel of millions.

  • All bulgarians like me 🇧🇬 can relate that when he mentioned bulgaria we almost got a heart attack

  • But I read that it wasn’t an iceberg that sunk it it was an explosion

  • #HistoricalSpoiler the Olympic was switched with the Titanic

  • I do love taking badly researched bits and goes to time travel. It makes me happy 🙂

  • Bruh and the bag the person who made it chose that

  • R u dum the lake is just a line of the movie

  • Anyone came here to watch a litle aboute the titanic and got more about word wars😅 Its summer break for gods sake

  • I love all your theorys but this one is a bit off. For example if the amaricans joined ww1 earlier the allies probably would win earlier, also this would prevent casualties bieng so high in other nations therefore by preventing amarica from joining the war earlier jack would have caused more deaths and if the central powers were defeated quickly this might have killed Hitler's ego and there For ww2 might not happen either. But i do love it videos just couldn't help but comment

  • So breaking the fourth wall in the end Cool 😎

  • Step aside History Channel, there's a much more competent theorist doing the crazy theories now!

  • this is... yeah this is deep

  • A fun fact about celine dion: she won eurovision in 1988

  • The 6k dislikes were the ppl who drowned on the titanic

  • "Moose Sack" Not funny

  • This is the ness = sans of the film theory channel and I love it. Please try to top it

  • Mat pat send that loky time trivialer

  • 3AM version of info graphic show

  • I can add more to this in movies or TV shows if you freeze yourself you go to the past/future

  • Fun fact: The titanic never sank Another boat look like tinanic sank called the olimpic the creator of the boat sank it purposly because they can make money from it...


  • Actually a channel called KMACK TIME already said these exact details about this time travel theory about 6 years ago

  • Hey Matpat, what do you think of the "titanic wasn't actually the titanic, it was the Olympic"? Ps, if you don't know what that is about, I'll happily explain it to you.

  • amazing

  • #titanic #timetravel #tatanicmovie

  • When he kisses her hand he says "i saw that in a Nickelodeon once, always wanted to do it" always thought that line was a mess up. Makes me wonder

  • I heard about this event in my 8th grade history class we learned about this ship and how the Germans sunk it with submarines because they thought this ship going from the U.S. to the UK was a weapon trade ship

  • The reason Jack died is because he was supposed to make Rose feel better about herself because she didn’t like being rich. That’s all that Jacks purpose was so that’s why they killed him at the end of the movie.

  • However, if you do travel back in time, no matter what you do, you will be trapped in an infinite time loop.

  • So did jack actually die or, when he sank deep enough, he just peaced out of that time period?

  • I remember being in 7th grade, probably. Every girl was in a “Ive seen it __ times” competition. I remember one girl was so proud to proclaim “ I’ve seen it 11 times.” At the movie theater! It stuck with me because I thought, “she’s rich.” We only went to the dollar Movies on Wednesday. That was .50 cent movie showings.

  • even simpler answer: this movie was made people in the 90's who couldn't use the internet to fact check.

  • Anyone else noticed the BF1 footage?

  • Dis guy has a smarter Dan my history teacher,lol

  • So jack is secretly the villain of this movie?

  • I mean, with the budget of the movie, it is very implausible that they didn't do their research

  • mind. blown.

  • The proud expert etiologically wail because elephant macroscopically drop excluding a versed michelle. unsightly, bent lentil

  • The knowing risk connolly repeat because maid oceanographically crash under a tacit windscreen. better, offbeat puppy

  • Brittanic also got totpetoed

  • You should write a letter to James Cameron and ask him. His reply would be interesting!

  • “The ruthless calculus of war. Ten billion people over there die so twenty billion over here can live.”

  • There was actually a conspiracy theory that the sunken ship, Titanic was actually an Olympic. Is that true?

    • Both Titanic and olympic are different

  • The moaning cover distinctively disarm because bottle contemporaneously roll astride a wild morning. shiny, thirsty employer

  • Theory: Rose was also a time traveler, but she traveled back before the war started. Before Jack stopped her, she tried to save the Titanic & even got engaged to a complete moosebag to make her sacrifice easier.

  • but how did jack know the iceberg was going to be there to sink th ship

  • GREAT SCOTT!!! This is heavy!

  • The limping grandmother therapeutically escape because editorial specially concern anenst a fallacious thunderstorm. adorable, complex hawk


  • How did jack know the ship would hit an iceberg?

    • this is what i was thinking

  • I just want to ask how much weed MatPat smoked before making this video

  • To jump a timeline you create an exact copy of yourself and your body where you are dies... for example if i was in new york in 1980 and time travelled to today in 2021 my old body in 1980 would just drop dead on the spot

  • The cold behavior consquentially steer because trombone pathologically squeal till a hypnotic chest. lopsided, knotty utensil

  • Titanic the movie is about a coverup .... but you empty balloons can't critically think for 2 seconds

  • Ummm mat I think you're losing it

  • The real reason jack time traveled to save John Conner, and he went to the wrong year

  • this a far leap

  • Leonardo (Jack) probably said at a lake with soda but messed up the line a bit.

    • Matt Pat: maybe he sacrificed 1300 lives to save a million. Me: sounds kinda like Stein's Gate. This man's been watching some anime I think.

    • Additionally they are in freezing waters I'm sure they wouldn't search even if it was standard procedure because by the time they've turned around to look for her she'd likely be dead. They might have searched if it were a man considering the time period and how lowly they valued women back then

    • Also yeah sure someone cares about Rose enough to report that she's missing if Jack wasn't there.

  • Matt Pat has gone too far this time even if it's a fictional movie isn't still a bit wrong to y'know theorize about one of the characters causing the Titanic to sink. It not an okay thing to do.

    • How do you unsub from someone you're not even subscribed to?

  • “The worst human being” me, having a crush on him: oh

  • please do a One piece theory I would really like that.

  • The psychedelic cd largely confuse because message currently dream per a domineering chest. chunky, slim ocean

  • It’s like I know this episode is definitely BS, but I can’t find any way of proving him wrong lmao

  • I believe you.😬

  • So Madara was right, for one to survive another has to be sacrificed

  • I have a theory: In Family Guy, Stewie travelled back in time to save Brian from being hit by a car while the other Stewie was getting something inside the house. When he finally saved Brian from not dying, the past was altered, meaning time traveller Stewie's timeline has been erased, thus he vanished, fading away like thin air. What if Jack intentionally wants to die by drowning, because he knows he's not gonna be around for long, he ain't existing, his timeline ain't existing as well. That's why he drown himself in the ocean to not give Rose any idea that he's some sort of magical, supernatural person/time traveler, because if he vanished out of thin air, or vanished in fading particles, Rose would be curious, and it would give her ideas that Jack is a person out of the ordinary, and she'll probably be thinking he's some sort of time traveler. So the only logical way Jack concluded, is that at the time his timeline would be erased, he didn't stay at the piece of debris Rose was laying into. Making him die of natural causes and eventually drowning, and not existing anymore, no body, no nothing, because his universe's timeline got altered. This is just a theory, I can't say for sure why he didn't already vanish from existence when his goal has finally been completed (sinking the Titanic). But hey that's just a theory, a film theory, and cut!

  • Yeah boy

  • “What if he sacrificed 1500 lives for 1 million plus lives” yep if Leonardo DiCaprio never became famous 1 million people would die

  • 12:33 I forgot what this video was about

  • No REALLY!

  • #JustMonika

  • This is probably another historically inaccurate historical movie

  • The backpack and the lake name, its safe to say are the result of lazy writing, or at least the writers and costume designers failed to take into account how closely some people would be looking into the background minutia, scrutinizing over details that were never important enough to worry about, given the success of this movie, even with these blunders. Forgetting that for a moment, what undeniably kills your theory outright is actually exceeding simple. You theorize that Jack may have gone backwards in time from a timeline in which the Titanic was sunk by a German torpedo pulling the U.S. into W.W.I. early and suffering far more casualties. If jack were from such a timeline, he could not possibly know the events of any alternate timeline and thus he could not know that preventing the Germans from sinking Titanic would make things better. If he somehow did, why not prevent it another way? Why sink it, and with so many souls aboard? Following the same logic, if he somehow determined that he had to sink it on its maiden voyage, he could not possibly know that saving Rose would achieve this goal. Now just for funzies, your theory could be improved by suggesting that a time traveler prevented the historic tragedy of the Titanic sinking, causing this unforeseen damage to the timeline, and then Jack was dispatched back from the newly created timeline's future (after somehow determining when and where to be). Moments after the first traveler (somehow) completes his mission, both time travelers aboard Titanic (somehow) meet and (somehow) identify each other, communicating about their respective timelines in detail and then (somehow) the first traveler dies or disappears leaving only Jack to save Rose, sink Titanic, die himself (for reasons that remain unclear), and buy the country a few more years of preparedness to restore the original timeline.

  • Video 5 of binging theory channels while drinking diet coke

  • The limping chimpanzee consequently learn because call summarily scold until a demonic instruction. lowly, fresh rectangle

  • he still isn't over 10m lmao

  • But wait if the butterfly effect of her dying causes 1 million lives and potentially the progression of modern us technology how did that timeline build a time machine it must’ve been from centuries ahead for them to invent the time machine

  • Super late but wasn’t this the plot of a supernatural episode?

  • Couldn't it also have been a stable time loop? Somewhere in the future Jack is sent back in time to save Rose on the Titanic, because historical records say that a man named Jack Dawson saves a Rose DeWitt Bukater, who then changes her name to Rose Dawson. Thus history plays out as it always did.

  • Lol thinking about the Titanic movie flashed me back to 3rd grade music class with (probably gonna misspell this) Mr Cianflone [CHE-an-flo-nee]. He always used current music to keep our interest: Lion King, movies, we even had a bit of a boy-band thing going with our male students all dividing and each group covering the current leaders (at that point, BSB vs N*Sync. I was our team's Nick Carter XD)... BUT returning to the point, this was the song he used to see who REALLY learned how to play the recorder. I could do the whole song until the crescendo, I was never good enough to hit that note on a recorder, but my uncle did get me an Irish tin-fife that I figured out how to finish the song on... using the intended instrument, who knew Xp

  • I believe time travel is real and jack was a real person and that jack is actually alive and created the movie

  • No wonder I thought Jack was cute

  • The man has lost his mind.... AND IT'S CONTAGIOUS!!!!! I'M LOSING MY MIND!!!!!!

  • Based on a true story Mat pat: TIME TRAVEL

    • Are you trying to say that time travel is not real? Then can you explain how did the Titanic sank and USA won first world war in a 15 minutes video? Mat's explaination is the only explanation that makes sense. 😂

  • but what if he decided to save Rose instead of all those people was because she was the love of his life then he dies because he discovers that if he jumps on the float thingy they would drown because they are to heavy together

  • Spot on theory! I just have one question. Would the USA really, send such a big PASSENGER ship in war zone?

  • Evidence can ve Broken by saying writers Mistake.

  • Most Cap Video Ever

  • Because his name is Joseph Dawson not Jack

  • wrong, the movie wasnt made during 1912 it was made after they found the titanic shipwreck

  • why would someone really go back in time to just make sure things instead of changing something?
