Titanic-philes lured by big-screen cinematic experiences will want to indulge in this letterbox widescreen edition of the two-cassette set.
When the theatrical release of James Cameron's Titanic was delayed from July to December of 1997, media pundits speculated that Cameron's $200 million disaster epic would cause the director's downfall, signal the end of the blockbuster era, and sink Paramount Pictures as quickly as the ill-fated luxury liner had sunk on that fateful night of April 14, 1912. Titanic would surpass the $1-billion mark in global box-office receipts, win 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Director, launch the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time, and make a global superstar of Leonardo DiCaprio. A bona fide pop-cultural phenomenon, the film has all the ingredients of a blockbuster (romance, passion, luxury, grand scale, a snidely villain, and an epic, life-threatening crisis), but Cameron's alchemy of these ingredients proved more popular than anyone could have predicted. His stroke of genius was to combine absolute authenticity with a pair of fictional lovers whose tragic fate would draw viewers into the heart-wrenching reality of the Titanic disaster. As starving artist Jack Dawson and soon-to-be-married socialite Rose DeWitt Bukater, DiCaprio and Kate Winslet won the hearts of viewers around the world, and their brief, but never forgotten, love affair provides the humanity that Cameron needed to turn Titanic into a moving emotional experience. Although some of the computer-generated visual effects look artificial, others--such as the climactic splitting of the ship's sinking hull--are state-of-the-art marvels of cinematic ingenuity. It's an event film and a monument to Cameron's risk-taking audacity, blending the tragic irony of the Titanic disaster with just enough narrative invention to give the historical event its fullest and most timeless dramatic impact. --Jeff Shannon

What can I say?! A timeless classic remastered for 3D viewing makes the experience of watching this movie THAT much more immersive. Crisp, vibrant picture and at a fair price which is well worth it. The only downside is that the movie is divided into two discs - but a minor downside in all which you receive - which is an invitation for a little over 3 hours worth of feeling like you’re actually experiencing a love story and tragedy of your own.
I never had the liberty of seeing this movie in theater on a big screen but watched it promptly when it was released on VHS, then moving up to DVD and now the fantastic quality provided on Blu-Ray (and in 3D as well). I lost touch for years of how truly powerful this movie and story were until I stumbled across it on Netflix a little over a month ago. I’ve watched it thrice more since then.
I cannot help but blame Jack Dawson for my unrealistic expectations in men. 😂
Some folks really don't like this movie... what... because it's not faithful to exactly what happened that night?
IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE FAITHFUL. It's a love story, and one I still enjoy watching multiple years after the first time I've seen it.
