Now I do have to say that many, many years ago, back in 1997 I first saw Titanic on the big screen and have since seen it several times on DVD and it’s appeal had worn a little thin, but now 15 years later and being a little older, I decided to go and see this re-issue of the film that has been converted in to 3D.
As most of you know Titanic is a love story of Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) based on the ill-fated voyage of the “unsinkable” Titanic, possibly the most famous ship in the world, the film won 11 Academy Awards back when it was originally released and to this day, still holds an audience, whether it’s on DVD or on the big screen.
Titanic 3D – Blazing Minds Film Review
So I can’t really say much about the film itself as most of us already know so much about the much-loved film, so this review is really about the 3D more than the actual film itself.
To start of with Titanic has aged well, it’s still enjoyable to watch and still has the power to make the tears stream down your face, even though we all know what happens with Jack and Rose during this cinematic masterpiece.
Ok, I can hear you asking about the 3D.
I have to say that I’m always sceptical about 2D – 3D conversions and specially after seeing Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, which was an awful conversion, I wasn’t hoping for much and was just looking forward to seeing the film on the big screen again.
Oh how wrong I was, James Cameron has done a superb job with the 3D conversion for Titanic, right from the start of the film you could see that this was indeed going to be more of an experience than the first time I saw the film 15 years ago.
It has to be one of the best 3D conversions I’ve seen, it’s crisp has a multitude of depth and just looks fantastic, fly by shots of the ship just look wonderful and as you move through the crowds before the ship sails and shots on the decks just work so wonderfully.
Trust James Cameron to pull off a 3D conversion so perfectly, but lets face it, he did bring us the wonderful 3D of Avatar.
Overall Thoughts Of Titanic 3D
A superb film that has aged so well in the last 15 years, I enjoyed it so much more than when I saw it back in 1997, the 3D conversion is fantastic and it’s great to have the atmosphere and emotions of seeing Titanic on the big screen again. My recommendation, go see this film in 3D!
