Our fascination with the tragedy of the Titanic has never waned. In April, it was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of this "unsinkable" giant on its maiden voyage. There has, through the years, been so much material presented about the disaster through various media outlets. Enthusiasts and casual historians with an interest in the topic have likely snapped up some of the higher profile pieces related to that fateful night. With that said, don't be surprised if "Titanic: 100 Years in 3-D" feels very similar to other specials you may have seen. I was excited to check out this new presentation, largely for the promise of 3-D. The distinctive selling point of this 45 minute short is the inclusion of underwater footage of the wreckage shot in a revolutionary new 3-D HD technique in 2010 by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in conjunction with RMS Titanic, Inc. But as I started to look at footage I had assumed was new to the DVD, I realized that I had seen the same material at a public exhibit about the Titanic AND in other History specials. It's still impressive in detail and access, I just hadn't expected that I would already have experienced it.
3-D: This is really not a full scale 3-D presentation that you might be anticipating. While the third dimension is utilized occasionally on graphics and computer recreations, it is mostly employed in a very natural form to present the underwater sequences that get up close to the wreckage. As I mentioned, these moments have great clarity and surprising beauty.Read more ›
Now, as far as the documentary goes, I'd say it's not really much better or worse then the many Titanic documentaries that have been seen on cable since the new millennium began. It's decent enough.
Despite another review, I had no problems playing this on my 3D computer and the 3D was fine. No problems at all. I must say, however, that I saw no way to play this in 2D. I tried just out of curiosity, and just got double images. So, it would seem if you don't have 3D, you'd probably do best to wait on this one. I know all 3D Blu-rays (at least the movies) are supposed to include a 2D version and I'll keep trying. If I can get it to work, I'll update. There is no 2D option on the menu, however.
Again, this review is for the History Channel Blu-Ray titled, "Titanic, 100 years in 3D".
Final note, If you're into Titanic history and have 3D capabilities, this IS a good addition to your 3D collection, but mainly because of the underwater 3D. Also note it's only about 45 min long, but it's also (as of this writing) reasonably priced. Not a bad deal at all.
