The film belongs to Kate Winslet, playing society girl Rose DeWitt Bukater, and Leonardo DiCaprio, playing the poor but charming young artist Jack Dawson, who's returning to America after failing to make a go of it in France. Rose's mother has arranged her marriage to the wealthy Cal Hockley, who Rose despises, and when Rose meets Jack, the romance is on. Complications arise, however, when the ship strikes an iceberg and sinks 2½ hours later. You knew that already, of course, but what happens in the film during the final moments of the Titanic's life is nonstop action with one of the most suspenseful endings I've seen in any movie.
One feature of Amazon Instant Video that I love is X-Ray, which identifies the actors in each scene, and reveals bloopers - both factual errors and continuity errors. Titanic is full of these, which is not unexpected, since movie fans have had almost two decades to find the bloopers. That's not a criticism of the film, however, and if anything, it actually added to my enjoyment.
It's easy to see why Titanic won eleven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director, tying it with Ben Hur for the most Oscars (11) won by a single film.
There’s not really much I can add to the plethora of reviews written about the quality of “Titanic” itself, so I won’t even try. The ratings at Amazon.com, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, and Flixster speak for themselves, as does the number of awards the film has garnered over the years. Professional reviewers like the late, great Roger Ebert gave the film rave reviews. I completely agree with their assessment.
My review concerns the Blu-ray version of “Titanic” that I purchased from Amazon a week ago. Before last week, I had never seen this film in high definition video or surround sound. (I had only previously owned a copy of the movie on an early, bare-bones DVD edition that was of such poor quality it was almost painful to watch.) So, when I sat down last week and fired up my Blu-ray player and HDTV, and settled into my recliner to watch this fantastic film for the first time in HD, I was completely blown away…
It was immediately evident that James Cameron and his production team spared no expense and cut no corners in remastering “Titanic” for Blu-ray. I found the video detail simply astounding from the very first frame! I saw colors that are perfect, images that are sharp and detailed (but with no edge enhancement) and film grain that’s natural but unobtrusive. I didn’t see any banding, crushing, dirt, speckles, or other anomalies anywhere throughout the film’s three hour runtime. This Blu-ray version uses a lossless DTS Master Audio Multi-channel that completely filled my viewing space with 5.1 surround audio that’s completely immersive and life-like. To me, the experience was akin to seeing “Titanic” for the first time!
The Blu-ray version of “Titanic” that I purchased is the four-disc “combo-pack” that includes: two Blu-ray discs, one containing the restored feature film and accompanying audio commentary tracks, and the other containing over four hours of special features. Also included are two DVDs that each contain half of the feature film. It must be noted that the DVD version of “Titanic” contained in this set has been digitally remastered, and of extremely good quality.
If you’ve never seen “Titanic” in high definition/surround sound, or if you’re looking to upgrade the version in your disc collection to one having the best video and audio quality available, this 4-Disc Combo Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy version is the one to get. Highly recommended.
