Dont understand the hate for the romance in the flick. It added to it. Otherwise you have a ship sinking, end of story.

It was an excellent movie and still is. It will be nice to see it on the big screen again. Hopefully the 3D does add something to it

 So, after showing up to the theater with the g/f, and thinking we were going to see Hunger Games or 21 Jump Street, we see the sign for this. She was 12 when it came out. So yeah, guess what I got to see last night?

Honestly, my ass hurt after hour two. I've seen it many times like the rest of you (save for Wise, so I knew what was in the film. I will say the 3D did serve its purpose, as the reviewer stated, as many shots of the ship underwater or the glas plates falling over, even to the frozen bodies in the last sequence, gave them a depth of field that added to the reality of the film. 

In the end, my girlfriend was happy, made me wait so she could sing out the song. And I can admit it, it's still an epic film that has it's points. Plus, it's Cameron. Come on now.

 @ at Wise, i just keep telling myself what he did with the Abyss which will be nearly 25 years old, and marveling at what he's going to give us for the Avatar sequels.

 

And I would marvel at an Aliens 3D re-release. That film is disgustingly slick on blu ray, can't imagine it in 3D. The last shootout would be epic beyond proportion

Violator, yes that's much better.

Movieguy, how were Winslet's boobs in 3D yo?

I like this movie! Yeah, I said it! Want to hear it again? I like this movie!

It is what it is and it does it perfectly. How do I know this? Despite what critics may say or Rotten Tomatoes, it hits the right people (the romantic in every girl and in men too) with a tried and true storyline given new and innovative verve by Cameron with the bonus of immense FX done at their peak. It does it all and became the highest grossing film at that time and will be part of pop culture forever. I always compare it to Gone With The Wind: a tragic love story set against the backdrop of a huge historical event.

Is it often heavy handed? Hells yes. Cameron, like Lucas finds it hard to put subtley in his characters, but that is also the nature of modern day blockbuster movies.

Having said all that, I don't feel the need to venture to the theater to see it in 3D. I'll watch some of the anniversary documentaries on TV instead.

 I really liked the history and the special effects for Titanic.  As a story it sunk faster than Winslet's corset.

 It's simple.  James Cameron Epic Movie = AWESOME.  This guy could make a billion dollar grossing Zombie Movie.  He's really that good.  I said it ages ago, when Aliens came out.  His attention to detail drives co-workers nuts, but James knows what he wants and what needs to be done to make these movies magical.  He's just getting warmed up folks!  Bash Titanic all you want, but it was a great film with several different elements that appealed to a wide range audience.  If you can get my mom, my brother, AND my dad to like the same movie...  That's amore!

This review is spot on. A better than decent movie but not something worth re-watching many times. I enjoyed the detail in the movie, was bored by the predictable romance. I really don't like 3D, so there's no way I'm going to see this again in theatres. Maybe if it makes it to my local Redbox the wife & I will rent it.

As for Avatar 2, I'm more interested in seeing footage of Cameron's trip 7 miles down.

 I'd love to see this in 3D.  Then maybe I could stick my foot out and push that little twirp down into the water and save another hour and a half of the movie.

2017, this will be revisited again, and people who's parents were kids when this came out, would be watching and talking about how they enjoyed this and that, and then in 2037, this will be in rotation and the new holiday favorite on everyone's internal body TV, and once again there will be people on whatever kind of site there will be in whatever kind of delivery system used will talk about how it is overblown and terrible and not fit to be watched... kind-of like The Wizard of Oz.
