:( Perfect opportunity to see it on the big screen. My mom has not seen it either. She was worried she would get really upset because of the Celine Dion song, because of personal reasons. I hope she will go with me to see it though, I cry EVERY time.

I already saw the 2D version in the 90s, the hype was crazy. :rolleyes:

I don't have any intentions to see it again in 3D. :o:p

Lmao. Titanic, as cliche as it made be at times, is my favorite romantic movie, aside from Atonement. It just...moves me in unimaginable ways. I really care for the characters EACH time, even though I know what is going to happen, I always hope the ending is different. :l

BTW-listening to that song now. :(

larafan25
22-11-11, 01:11
Same.

In fact, no matter how many times I watch Rose climb over the edge of the ship in that red dress, I always yell "You stupid bitch no!" and then am like "OHMYGAWD NO! please come back don't fallz!" :(

CiaKonwerski
22-11-11, 01:13
ME TOO! Lmao. I do not even know why I cry during this, there are a lot sadder movies but this just...really got to me. :l Weird...it is a conspiracy. :O

22-11-11, 01:15
Meh, I think it's just a good movie, as much as it may have faults such as cliche's, etc...

They work here, it does a good job.

It's the Uncharted of Romance films...I guess...

CiaKonwerski
22-11-11, 01:17
I guess so. Did you ever see Atonement? That is the other only romance film I cried in. :(

22-11-11, 11:33
Great movie, I have watched it many times as a kid and a teenager, I even have the VHS, but I don't like the 3D trend. I'd might succumb for something like The Lord Of The Rings or Star Wars, but other movies like Lion King & Titanic are a no no for me.

22-11-11, 11:39
:p saw this today! I think they just out to juice the movie again of every penny. :pi:
IMO As much fun as seeing the water rush over you, i'd rather keep it a 2D normal. has more charm. Cameron's got plenty of time to make other 3D movies.. like Avatar 3,4,5 etc. But than, I guess it's better than Titanic 2..

I saw the first one with my brothers, mom and dad. I was SO bored, asking over and over to my dad...."Hey, when it's going to sink?" I was like 8 or 9 haha, loves story where (and still) crap for me. But my best friend is a girl who LOVES the "If you jump, I jump" so just like Lion King, I will have to watch this even I don't :p

Another film I definitely want to see in 3D.

I still haven't seen Avatar, I decided to give it a pass too much hype for a film about blue aliens. But for the Titanic 100 yr anniversary I will see this film in 3D. :)

Saw this movie ages ago when I was a child, was a good movie.
Though, not to thrilled to see it again in 3D, as they keep playing the 2D version
on basic TV, so really no point of me seeing it.

And the good thing is that while it is converted 3D, it's not the cheap kind that you can find in a lot of films, apparently they are going through each frame of the film and remastering each frame in 3D by hand! :yik: I can see why it's taking so long lol, especially since the film is over 3 hours long.

Dont worry, it'll probably get a release after the new cinema run and it will probably go to 3D blu ray as well :)

This news is old, but I don't think it has been posted.
James Cameron says that if Titanic 3D is successful, he would then like to remaster Aliens and T2: Judgment in 3D! That would be awesome! :D
http://blog.moviefone.com/2011/10/11/james-cameron-3d-terminator-2-aliens-conversions/?_r=true
Even in the midst of what may or may not be a backlash against 3D -- "may" if you wasted your hard earned money on a poor up-conversion; "may not" if you happen to be James Cameron -- the aforementioned James Cameron still stands defiant. To be fair, he has the right to do so: 'Avatar' may have spawned clones of rip-off 3D suitors, but that's certainly not Cameron's fault, and no one has questioned Cameron's painstaking attention to 3D detail. James Cameron was presented with the Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Leadership Award in New York City on Monday night, and the Oscar-winning director spoke to Moviefone one-on-one about the 3D backlash, his rerelease of 'Titanic' in 3D in April of 2012 (more on that here), and why the success of 'Titanic' just may lead to 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' and 'Aliens' getting the 3D treatment as well.

It seems like with every blockbuster 3D movie, the reports are that more and more people are opting for the 2D version. This happened with 'Pirates 4.' After the good will of 'Avatar,' how do you win back an audience that feels tricked?
I don't think that's the case at all. I don't think the audience feels tricked, I think the audience occasionally feels like they're not getting their money's worth when they go to see a film where they're paying for a premium ticket price and it's sort of sloppily converted to 3D and it's not delivering. And that usually happens because the studio imposes 3D on the filmmaker and the filmmaker says, "Look I'm making the movie, you all do with it what you want." Which is really a bad attitude because if you're not shooting for 3D, it's not going to look as good. So I'm not in favor of conversion. I think that's potentially a way to do minor damage to the marketplace.

So is there a backlash?
I think this whole story is trumped up by the media. You know, they built it up, it's this fantastic new thing, and now we're going to tear it down.

You seem frustrated by this. Are you frustrated by this story?
No, no. I'm not frustrated at all. I think it's a natural course of the evolution of any new thing. But I think people need to understand and remember: 3D revenues for movies have grown 40 percent a year, year over year, for three years. And are projected to do that next year. This business is not going away. You're not going to put that toothpaste back in the tube. We've gone from one percent of the market four years ago to 21 percent of movie revenues now. So, I think it's being very broadly accepted on a global basis -- much more so internationally than domestically. So, 3D is going to be with us forever. The question is: When does it reach the same levels of broadcast? We've got about 110 camera systems right now that are out all of the time -- the trucks are out all of the time. We've done 160 sporting events and it goes up 20 of new ones every couple of months. So that's now starting to explode.

You mentioned that you're not in favor of conversion, but you are converting 'Titanic.' Was that process more difficult than you expected? Are you happy with the results?
I expected it to be really hard to get high quality results. And that proved to be accurate. Including the mastering of the film and the 3D conversion, we're spending 18 million dollars in one year -- and it will barely be done in time, in February -- to do it up to a standard equal to having shot it in 3D. Which, of course, would have been my first choice. Short of having a time machine available, I don't know a way to do that.

Will we see other films from the James Cameron catalog converted?
We are exploring a new market here for classic library titles that are much beloved films that may or may not have a new life in the theatrical marketplace. We're just going to have to see. I mean, do the numbers support the idea of a 'Terminator 2' or 'Aliens'? I don't know, those would be cool movies to convert. But I don't know -- we have to see how much we make off of 'Titanic.'

Oh **** off. What a stupid gimmick, to try and draw attention to a movie that had its day over 10 years ago.

Don't get me wrong, not dissing Titanic, my point is it's such an iconic film (even though I don't like it very much :p) that there's always a new generation to discover it infact I'm baffled as to why they've re-released it.

Oh and in 3D big ****in surprise. James Cameron or whoever was in charge of this, screw you! You money grabbing whore!

Hey at-least he's not as bad as George Lucas.... it is also being re-released for the centenary of the ship sinking.
in-fact, a few things are being done for the centenary (A night to remember is being released on blu-ray, the 1996 TV mini-series is being released on blu ray, there are more documentaries being made etc.) Also, the 3D in this re-release is said to be absolutely top-notch, $18,000,000 was spent over a 1 1/2 year period to convert the film to the standards of other big 3D movies.

Also, this gives people a chance to see Titanic on the big screen, which some people (like me) never got to do. I would love to see Titanic in cinemas and experience something I was too young at the time to experience in theatres :) (I was 1 when Titanic was released).

Said to be. Yes, said to be. They said that about Avatar's 3D and it was just...meh.

It's 3D it's a stupid gimmick, however HD and being re-released in cinemas I can understand, especially as you said people get to see it on the big screen. :hug:

Just 3D? Really? Why, why? :confused: Don't get me wrong 3D is fun but this is just silly, I could never bear being sat for two-three hours in a crowded cinema with those big bulky glasses on me.

And wouldn't the 3D hurt people's eyes? Seeing as the movie is like 11 hours long. :rolleyes:

Stevo505
08-04-12, 04:09
^ I agree completely. It does not need to be in 3D. There is nothing that makes it necessary. If they want the movie to be viewed by the younger people, then they should have just released it without the 3D. 3D is just a gimmick by the greedy James Cameron to get more money.

because James Cameron is a 3D enthusiast, and no-one can change that. If he wants to put his movies in 3D, let him :)
and when you say 'Said to be', i'm talking about personal views from lots of other people, ive watched a lot of amateur reviews on Youtube and they all say the 3D is brilliant. Some people like 3D and some don't, get over it, nobody is forcing you to see the movie in 3D :)

I agree. James Cameron is a tool and movies over 2 hours should not be in 3D. Especially ones like this. The 3D is only going to be interesting when the boat sinks.

this is the one thing i agree with though, yes I do think that James Cameron needs to understand that if a 3hr 15m film is going to be in 3D, there should be a intermission at-least, that goes with the producers though. I do like 3D in certain movies, if my eyes get tired i just take the glasses of for a few minutes and let my eyes rest :)

I personally think it's wrong to make a spectacle of something like this by adding 3D. The sinking of the Titanic is something that should be remembered fondly and mourned... we shouldn't be flocking to see Titanic because it's in 3D because that's "cool."

I don't get how it's a gimmick. Are you really so fussed about wearing glasses? All it does is make the movie more realistic, less flat. It's not meant for things to pop out at you anymore. It just adds another dimension of immersion and realism and Titanic is a pretty iconic film so why not?

I don't understand why so many are so butt hurt over it. What the hell...

I don't get how it's a gimmick. Are you really so fussed about wearing glasses? All it does is make the movie more realistic, less flat. It's not meant for things to pop out at you anymore. It just adds another dimension of immersion and realism and Titanic is a pretty iconic film so why not?

I don't understand why so many are so butt hurt over it. What the hell...

I don't know what world you live in. :p And it is a gimmick. How is seeing two hours of romance and one hour of a ship sinking awesome in 3D? Not only that but it's a movie about a tragedy that happened and the 3D thing is sort of turning it into something that's more entertainment than something that is a tribute to the lost (not like the plot didn't already do that).

If anyone is butt-hurt, it's you. You're upset because some people don't see the point in this film being in 3D. You need to get over that, people have opinions.

Lol I'm not upset. I'm only annoyed that people seem upset about it. I don't really get it. Just don't go see it.

And I don't know how many movies you've seen in 3D, but it adds dimension and layers to the film, making it appear more realistic, more "real time" if you will. It's not just made so that cool things can pop out at you. That's ridiculous. And I don't see how it's a gimmick. Now if movies were being made so that certain things popped out... yeah that could be a gimmick, but that's often not the case.

But it is. It's just a way for Cameron to get extra money from more expensive tickets. And it's not even necessary for a film like Titanic where nothing happens a lot of the time. It's better for a film that has impressive visuals (like Avatar) or numerous action sequences. Also, I don't see the benefit in making it seem like you're in the movie, especially when it's Titanic. So now we're supposed to want to be on a sinking ship?

I'm glad you know him personally enough to make that observation. :whi:

I agree it's much better for a film that's pretty, but Titanic is one of the biggest films of all time. Being able to watch it in theatres again is a treat to those who still love it, so again... why not?

I've seen plenty of films in 3D and it doesn't make them look any more realistic, and neither did it make me feel immersed.

I watched Avatar in 3D and thought it was the biggest waste of time, my eyes and head were hurting about half way through. 3D is a gimmick period, especially when adding it to a film that wasn't even meant to be 3D in the first place.

I'm sorry. I never said that. :/ I don't really get how expressing an opinion that you disagree with is the same thing as saying that others aren't allowed to express theirs. This forum seems to make that mistake a lot.

I'm sorry that you got a headache, but what exactly defines a gimmick? I agree that sometimes 3D is used as a gimmick but definitely not always. Using 3D for movies that are "meant for 3D" seems more of a gimmick to me as I don't go to the movies to see things pop out at me. But I do enjoy movies that take advantage of it visually instead of making it annoying. I thought Avatar was a beautiful movie, but I have a love for beautiful fantasy environments and I thought it was freaking cool to see bugs flying around.

In my opinion.

Who cares? Don't go to see it if you don't like 3D. Carbonek, your statement " all directors want to make money" is not always true, yes some do but there are also some who make films for art aswell :) look at half of the independent directors in the world, they just want to make a film, take David Lynch for example, his debut Eraserhead was hardly mainstream at all, in fact, hardly anyone understands it, David lynch made that movie as a piece of art and not to make lots of money from. I mean, doesn't everyone want to make money really? Most directors want to make money because directing is their job, then again, some don't and make their money elsewhere.

The only films I have ever enjoyed in 3D were animated films. Mainly because the art-style fits 3D more than live action films. Toy Story 3 and Beauty & the Beast for example were far more eye catching than Avatar.
Who cares? Don't go to see it if you don't like 3D.
I'm not going to see it period. I have it on VHS & DVD, I don't want to give Cameron anymore money for a movie that I have seen a million times. Doesn't mean I can't express my opinion. So seriously, come off it.

Just to clear up, I have no interests in seeing the movie again though I might because I know a friend of mine does. I'm just trying to understand why some people hate 3D so much... there's potential there. But I do agree they tend to suit animated films more. Lion King was absolutely beautiful in 3D.

What I think is ****ing hilarious is that there's this cruise tour that goes around the exact route where the Titanic was.

Well it is interesting no matter how bleak it is, and you can always show respect if you do something like that. Let's be honest but to be a moment silent on the exact spot where hundereds people died, that would be amazing really :)
I honestly want to see the grave of Sidney Leslie Goodwin, being unidentified for 99 years, it's amazing people managed to find it out after all thong years.

08-04-12, 12:43
People can learn lessons from the past, and by looking at Titanic it is pretty historically interesting - being once an "invincible/unsinkable" ship and all. So I don't see anything wrong with the cruise.

She had not seen the entire thing, only the ending. She cried. There are so many issues in the movie rather than the Rose and Jack bit. Social order, how women were treated, and just the overall death of that many people was so tragic. The detail was great, and the 3D was subtle (which I preferred).

BD's hold 25GB's. Like seriously! :o

The Extended Editions were released on two different Blu-ray discs for each film, and it's not a single layer disc either, those discs are dual layer so there was 50 Gb. Reason is because at some point you will have to start compress the movie to the point where quantity goes over quality. The original cuts are three hours and up, that's really the limit for a high quality transfer on Blu-ray. Anything longer then 3 hours is usually a guarantee for a two disc release, it's not possible to have longer movies with high quality transfers on one disc.

what? my DVD is just one disk and the film fits on it? :confused:
Most releases of Titanic are single disc, the 4 disc release went with a different higher quality transfer if I remember correctly. The original release was a non-anamorphic transfer which they managed to put on one disc, the other transfer was anamorphic so it used more space for the actual film instead of black bars :)

It's a decision made by the studio really, James Cameron just smiles and goes along with it. He was the person that was most opposed 3D conversions, so I honestly doubt that he had to much to say about the Titanic in 3D.

I'm going to go see this soon, what does annoy me is that the nearest cinema to me that recently opened is not showing Titanic it's not like they are not equipped for 3D they are advertising Wrath Of The Titans in 3D while another cinema is only showing it twice a day maybe that's because they think loads of people have seen it and so they decided to only show it twice a day, while another cinema is showing it six times a day i can't get to that cinema because it's not the most accessible of cinemas.

Regarding disc space: The Godfather Part II fit on a dual-layered Blu-ray disc with no problems and ditto to Gone with the Wind. The former runs at three hours and twenty minutes and the latter is nearly four hours long. There's no reason Titanic (shorter than those two films) couldn't fit on one disc and be free of compression artefacts.

Shark_Blade
12-04-12, 00:30

I've never watched the movie properly before. I went to the cinema today and was pleasantly surprised. The movie was entertaining, and time seems to pass quickly when you enjoy yourself. I was there for 2 hours and then the ship hit the iceberg. Since I had a train to catch a train, I left the movie immediately (it seems there's like an hour and 17 minutes left for the final scene that I missed).

But no fret, I'll definitely be getting this movie on BD, whenever that's out.

The ship had rested for 73 years before it was found, how is that not resting. Plus the wreck is great for research how to prevent disasters like this again, but also for other research there is a bacteria that has been found on the wreck of the Titanic that has not been found anywhere else in the world. While I think that leaving some stuff of the dead should be self explanatory, some things should be looked at no matter how sad the incident was :)
