Life changing film
Verified purchase
I'm a 19 year old dude and this is one of my favorite films of all time, having really affected who I am. Always been a history buff, and since I was a little kid I'd been fascinated by the story of the Titanic. When I first watched this film, I meant to watch it for the historical aspect, and planned to disregard the love story aspect because "that's for girls." Well, I was quite mistaken. the story and characters are excellent, and I sorta looked up to Jack as the kind of guy I wanted to be, just an all around good guy who treats everyone fairly and will do whatever it takes to protect those who need it. Using this excellently constructed character as one of my role models, I've grown from a depressed young boy with a negative outlook on life to a much more positive, happier young man pursuing a military career at a great school. Moral of the story is, "Make each day count" and I thank all who were involved in the making of this film for helping bring that message to me. If you haven't watched this movie yet, you really should. I never would've guessed spending that $19.99 would change me as a person.

There's nothing I can say about this movie...
Verified purchase
... that will change anyone's minds. It's a part of the fabric of our culture.

Having established that, I will only add this: I find both Jack and Rose to both be immensely unlikable characters. Jack is a thief, a liar, and doesn't care a whit about Rose's future in America, or - for that matter - her past. He is an opportunist. And, as such, he lacks any and all scruples. His only desire is to subvert, upend, and cause a stir. He lives for the moment, and that moment must revolve around him. Nothing else beyond that matters. His death is utterly trivialized by how little his life mattered - and that is one hundred percent due to him.

Rose is, arguably, far worse. This is a woman for whom 'everything' was not enough - a member of the aristocracy at a time when the poor were little better than indentured servants. She mopes, she attempts suicide, she screws around with Jack (and then lets him freeze [because that whole door? It's damn well her's]). These massive personality flaws might be written off as the product of youth, except that Rose spends the next 80 years utterly detached from reality, pining for her Titanic fling. Her husband? Her children? Her grandchildren? They don't matter - they haven't developed a place in her cold heart that could even rival that brief, post-adolescent screw with Jack.

And then she tosses the diamond into the sea. Don't donate it to charity; don't leave it as an heirloom for your family - nope! Into the ocean! Because, you know, that's *meaningful,* or some garbage.

The rest of the movie is just fine - the acting is excellent; the special effects were (for their time) astounding. But I feel like the central story is undermined by the two remarkably hollow and, frankly, downright bad people at its core.

Great Commentary Track!
Verified purchase
I never watched this blockbuster until after this collector's edition was released. I'm glad I finally watched it, because I enjoyed it so much that I watched it again with the Director's commentary track, and found it to be one of the best commentary tracks I've heard. It actually gives a lot of insight into what the Director and his cast and crew put into this film. I'd missed the story about them getting sick at one of their parties! And I didn't realize a lot of other things about the making of this film.

I would definitely recommend this edition, especially the commentary track, to anyone who enjoyed the film without it!

... 3D Blu-Rays so I at least somewhat got to enjoy the experience
Verified purchase
Unfortunately I don’t have a 3D TV but my PlayStation Virtual Reality headset plays 3D Blu-Rays so I at least somewhat got to enjoy the experience.

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. 😂

Just had to have the updated 3d version for my collection.
Verified purchase
Originally I had a version from the early years of the 90s it wouldnt even fill my 47" flat screen so decided it was time to upgrade to the 3d version with the 2012 version. I wasnt disappointed and with Cameron at the helm I knew I would not be , yes my flat screen is 3d capable and yes this one fills my screen. The early scenes of underwater exploration had the debris floating into your living room and when Dawson was playing poker for the tickets they appeared to be in my living room too. You get a feeling of being even more involved with the 3d version. It cost me about $20 bucks and to me it was well worth it as an upgrade to what I had. I havent begun to go thru the 6 hours of special features involved in the combo, may update later on.

Great Effects and Sets, But Adolescent Storyline
Verified purchase
I am a long-time Titanic buff and student of the ship and her people. Camron's "Titanic" is the best when it comes to realistic, accurate sets, running a bit ahead of "A Night to Remember".

When it comes to storyline, the story is, at best, adolescent and at worst completely unreflective of the era in which the film is supposed to take place. This is an Edwardian luxury liner, people, not a Carnival cruse ship! Wealthy--or even shabbily-genteel--people wouldn't have been caught dead mixing with the Third-Class (aka "steerage"). It simply wasn't the "done thing". Even the rescue ship sorted out survivors into classes:First, Second, Third, officers, and crew.

Rose is basically, a brat. She's never known real hardship, having lived a life of luxury and ease. If you want a movie to have a heroine, at least make her likeable! Even in old age, she is self-absorbed, throwing away a diamond that could have left her beloved granddaughter comfortable for life. I mean, it's not like either the Hockleys or the insurance company are likely to come after Lizzie for it! Nope, Rose goes out to the fantail of the rescue ship and tosses as literal fortune overboard. Is this supposed to be a manifestation of "throwing it all away for love"? Because it comes off as completely selfish to me. But that's Rose--self-absorbed and selfish. As the story unfolds, she has no thought for her mother, who is trying to survive the only way she knows how. It wouldn't have been particularly noble, then or now, but still, there is no appreciation for what will happen to her mother should the upcoming nuptials fall apart. Given that this is Edwardian/Gilded Age society, it wouldn't be at all pretty. All Rose can do is to pout and try to commit suicide. Oh, and then cheat on her fiancé.

Jack is only slightly less likeable than Rose. He lives only living for the moment and wants what he wants, when he wants it, so basically self-absorbed and selfish. Had Rose and he actually left the Titanic together at New York, I suspect the relationship would have fallen apart. As a love interest, he simply isn't believable. First he looks way too young for his age, but I'll give Cameron that point since many relationships thrive despite a difference in age. However, given the vast differences in class and social standing, his boffing her in the back seat of a Renault--well, that plotline is for adolescents (IMO). Now, had Cameron made Jack a wealthy Bohemian in First Class that could have possibly worked. But steerage and First Class? Ummmm, no. Many people alive today simply do not understand how much class (either monetary or inherited) meant in that era. Furthermore, there was the divide between "old money" (represented by Cal, Rose and her mother) and "new money" (represented by Margaret "Molly" Brown, whose actual nickname was Maggie, not Molly). This divide certainly still existed in my childhood a good six decades ago.

The relationship that actually worked (had Ruth been younger) was that of Cal and Ruth. They actually have some chemistry together--and they understand one another. They are also class allies. I've watched "Titanic" at least a couple hundred times and seeing Cal and Ruth together, I can only think:Cal should marry Ruth. Both roles are played well by Billy Zane and Frances Fisher and reflect the social snobbery/social separation of rich and poor of the era.

Both Leo and Kate are very decent actors and I've liked them in several of their separate films. But even good acting (and they were good in their roles) can't save an adolescent, unbelievable storyline--at least for anyone with knowledge of the real ship and her passengers and crew or the Edwardian Era/Gilded Age.

There are so many real stories from the doomed liner that could have been portrayed to good effect--and should have been. Many of the Titanic's real passengers had interesting lives, along with hopes and dreams, unlike Jack and Rose.That is why I find "A Night to Remember" so much better than Cameron's "Titanic". Frankly, if Jack and Rose had both gone down with the Titanic, I couldn't have cared less and still can't. Contrast the endings of both films. "Cameron's Titanic"? Rose and Jack get to sail on forever together. "A Night to Remember"? Suffice it to say, the ending has a power that still shines through, even after more than six decades.

The sets are very accurate, which is one of the reasons I have enjoyed watching "Titanic" all two hundred-plus times. This is as close to the actual Titanic as we are ever likely to get. Cameron really did his homework here--and it shows. I felt like I was back aboard the Lady Herself while watching the film. That was a BIG plus for me. Also, the special effects are very decent for the time in which it was filmed.

So, I give it five stars for set accuracy and special effects, but only a one-star for storyline, for an average of three stars.
