Titanic 3D - Movie Review

Director, James Cameron spent a lot of time and money converting Titanic into the 3D format in hopes of giving audiences an entirely new experience and I do hope that what he has achieved here is what we can expect from the future of 3D movies.

If you do not know the story of the RMS Titanic or the phenomena that the movie became, then I'm not sure what planet you've been living on for the last 15 years. 'Titanic' is ultimately about the fateful maiden voyage in April of 1912 of what was highly regarded as the greatest achievement ever made by man. Inside of that journey we see a tale of two people from completely different worlds in Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) meeting and changing each other's lives forever. Their story mirrors that of the passengers and crew as the impact of an iceberg spells doom for everyone on board what was widely thought to be an unsinkable ship.

'Titanic' is equal parts intimate love story and an epic tale that is as big as the ship it is set on. The performances by the entire cast are perfectly played and the movie is filled with some amazing effects work that still holds up to this day. The movie itself is so engaging that to find a way to enhance it even more would be a pretty remarkable achievement.

With the addition of 3D technology, you are drawn even farther in to the story as everything has such an amazing depth and, at times, you feel you are right there with the characters. There are a few key points in the film where having the extra dimension puts you so in to the moment that you may find yourself holding on to your seat to keep yourself from falling in to the picture or just marveling at how it all looks on the screen.

The care that was put in to converting every frame of this movie is evident as it is so smooth and perfectly realized that one might think it was actually filmed using 3D cameras. There was not one time that I noticed any of the blurring or displacement that is evident in transfers that aren't held up to the higher quality standard. If you are a fan of 3D movies, you will absolutely love this and if you are still skeptical of the technology, 'Titanic" in 3D may just pull you over to the other side.
