    Just saw it tonight on free passes. I like the movie, always have. (Am I losing the little credibility I have?) lol. Anyways I just like it, mostly to do with the production design and tremendous detail etc and I'm a huge Cameron fan. It was cool to see it on the big screen again. Not a single alteration that I could see, nice solid original job from the first time around. See Lucas!, people like the way thing are originally if it's successful. The 3D was well done, placed and another round of kudos for Cameron by no gimmick shots, everything was naturally layered. It's exactly what it is, Titanic in 3D. If you like the movie it's worth seeing for the theatre experience in sight and sound and the 3D parts where the ship is on end etc was really well done and not overdone. Of course the talkers in the back that we had escorted out because me and the GF have zero tolerance for ignorant people. I said to the guy when we left as they were sitting at the bar "I was just wondering how much I had to pay you, because speaking parts in film have to be compensated." He looked at me stunned. Anywayz it's exactly what it is. Love it or hate it this movie is a reason for huge screens and awesome sound.

    Did they clean up & redo the green screen shots. I hope they covered up some of the glaring little mistakes throughout the film with added FX this time around. Once you've seen them. They're hard to not see, and in 3D they would standout even more.

    Did it seem darker, or appear the color was desaturated?

    You know come to think of it the black was black. The background wasnt washed out and definitely the stars looked really really good. Im thinking that the quality of the green screen etc was worked on. Also I didnt notice the wrinkly rubber foam boat parts when people hit them. I havent really researched alot about the rerelease but maybe they went in and did some of the small whoops from before. But absolutely the black and really dark shots did look tremendous. The part where Rose leans over the stern at the beginning and when the stern is vertical probly has to be two of the best 3D shots in 3D films I have seen IMO. The distancing was perfect without being exaggerated.

    Saw it last night. Thankfully I hadn't seen it in about 10 years so it was sort of new again for me. I really enjoyed it though the 3D was not always very apparent in my opinion. Its still a very powerful story despite some of the lame dialog.

    Going this weekend, not so much for the 3-d as seeing it on the big screen again!

    Family outing today, we're off to see it.

    I like the film so I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen and in 3D.

    "You're so stupid, Rose - you're so stupid! So stupid, so stupid, so stupid!"

    OK I'm exaggerating (just a little), but the number of times he says "so stupid" makes me cringe every time...

    Prop Store asked on their Facebook page if people were going to see the film and all the haters came out of the woodwork. It was quite "colorful". I was a bit disturbed by it. I think no one ever told some people that its ok to be a well rounded geek and like other things besides just sci fi. Even if you don't like the story, I hope it can be appreciated for the astounding production value. The sets and costumes are works of art. I think Cameron did a fine job honoring those who were aboard.

    I consider Titanic along the same lines as Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith...pretty good movie ruined by a lame love story. :lol

    :lol My sincerest apologies!

    I suppose its not quite as egregious as the number of times David Lee Roth belts out "Hey, hey, hey!" in Ain't Talking 'Bout Love!

    It was awesome in 3D, a real cinematic experience. The 3D was subtle in places but had great depth in others, it certainly added to the immersive experience, and seeing the film on the big screen again was brilliant.

    Truly a classic in my opinion.

    Exactly how I felt. Especially about the 3D. it was really subtle and then the serious distance parts really stood out. I think I may go see it again now. I'll give Cameron more money, I think always have liked his style and love his adventurous spirit. I'd rather support a guy like that than some "Other" big filmakers that really never give anything back. As for the movie itself the scene that really gets me is the far away shot with the flare going up and it;s dead quiet. There's nothing but the ship in the middle of the ocean and in that one shot you realize how isolated and alone they are with no chance of any rescue.

    I was never a huge fan but went to see it last night again anyways since it had been so, SO long.

    I really didn't notice much in the 3D. The colour looked fine to me. I DID notice ( afterward ) that I didn't notice the greenscreen backgrounds as much as I used to...and by not as much, I mean at all. The retouching was really wonderful and to see it in such large scale again was pretty intense ( and much scarier and more sad than on VHS ...even though I saw it in theaters when it first came out, too ).

    I'm going to go see it sometime this week, just to get to see it in the theater on the big screen!
    I love Jack and Rose, and I love those love stories when class is overcome or at least knocked
    down a notch or two.

    My favorite line from the movie is when Rose tells Cal, "I'd rather be his -ho-- than your wife."
    But old "so stupid" Cal, he just never did get it.

    Then, of course, there's the grandeur of the ship and all the pretty costumes and the sinking
    and Le Cœur de la Mer and the soundtrack.........

    Thats hilarious! Good thing is the rerelease was nothing like that lol. Probly exactly what Cameron directly avoided. I love the part when the plates explode in the M. Bay part. So true, I love Transformers for,,,, well the transformers. Other than that M.Bay has to be the most predictable director ever.

    Seriously though, how AWESOME would this movie be if there was a giant sea creature that took out the Titanic??? I saw that shot and immediately said to myself "YES."

    :lol

    anyone ever see the classic print where Godzilla is just under the surface...and his spines sticking out look suspiciously like an iceberg...and there's this big ship approaching... well, you get the idea.

    Hubby and I saw it again too. As has been mentioned, we figured even if the three-d was not terrific, it would be good to see it on the big screen again. We enjoyed the added immersion of 3-d - it was nicely done, especially in the 'present day' scenes underwater on the wreck.

    It's funny... on the pic with Godzilla as the iceberg, the one thing that gets me is the nameplate on the ship.

    Godzilla taking down the Titanic? I can buy that... but how DARE you include the letters "HMS" before Titanic???? It's NOT Historically accurate!!! ;-)

    (It's "RMS Titanic" not "HMS", and the nameplate only had "Titanic")

    You've obviously never heard about the Italian animated Titanic movies...

    Hours of your life that you will NEVER get back...!

    I don't think there's anything animated from the US or Japan that's as crappy as those films aside from maybe "Dirty Duck."


    P.S. -- They do have these films on YouTube. They had DVD releases in Canada. There are some things we're lucky to miss in the US!

    It's not quite as bad if you watch it as reviewed by the Nostelga Critic. He's got two animated Titanic movies.

    Finally saw Titanic 3D last night.

    I have to be honest, only about 90% of the film re-enforced my hatred of "3D" - there were some scenes where it seemed to add just a hint of depth (though, for all I know, that could have just been the HD part).

    For the most part the 3D was annoying and, if anything, cheapened the movie. I still maintain that 3D is terrible because it's just not the way people see - we just don't see things "popping out" at us. On top of that, the 3D looked like layers of motion, not one, integrated motion. Before the movie there was a trailer for Prometheus 3D and it was terrible! Lots of action and flashes and cuts... in 3D... I had to take my glasses off and close my eyes! It was worse than being on a dollar coaster with a strobe light!

    Overall, I think the 3D was an unnecessary gimmick that didn't work out very well. In a lot of the scenes it seemed to 'cheapen' the effect and make it look a LOT less realistic than the 2D version.

    I do have to give some credit to a couple scenes that had 3D done very well - it wasn't over-the-top, bouncing out at you, it just gave a slight additional impression of depth. That was well done.

    It does make me curious though... there were a two or three scenes where I wondered if the 3D would have been better in an iMax environment where the movie is all around you. Instead of being contained by a rectangle on the screen, you're surrounded on all side by the image so, perhaps, the 3D isn't as "confined" (note: I saw this on an Ultrascreen).

    I did a double take when I saw that you wrote VHS; I thought I was the only one that still held onto tapes :lol I opened up a box the other day that holds all of mine and when my youngest son saw one he asked "mommy what's this?." That was a funny moment trying to explain the technology of my day when he's use to iPods and video downloads. :lol This movie is great no matter if it's on VHS or the big screen. I'm going to see it again :popcorn
