See TITANIC as you have never seen it before, digitally re-mastered and overseen by Academy Award®-winning director James Cameron and producer Jon Landau.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet shine in the timeless love story born of tragedy that created an international phenomenon as memorable as the legendary “ship of dreams.” Winner of 11 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, this epic masterpiece is destined to sweep audiences anew into the journey of a lifetime.
Nothing on Earth can rival the epic spectacle and breathtaking grandeur of Titanic, the sweeping love story that sailed into the hearts of moviegoers around the world, ultimately emerging as the most popular motion picture of all time. Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar®-nominee Kate Winslet light up the screen as Jack and Rose, the young lovers who find one another on the maiden voyage of the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic. But when the doomed luxury liner collides with an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic their passionate love affair becomes a thrilling race for survival. From acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron comes a tale of forbidden love and courage in the face of disaster that triumphs as a true cinematic masterpiece.
When the theatrical release of James Cameron's Titanic was delayed from July to December of 1997, media pundits speculated that Cameron's $200 million disaster epic would cause the director's downfall, signal the end of the blockbuster era, and sink Paramount Studios as quickly as the ill-fated luxury liner had sunk on that fateful night of April 14, 1912. Some studio executives were confident, others horrified, but the clarity of hindsight turned Cameron into an Oscar-winning genius, a shrewd businessman, and one of the most successful directors in the history of motion pictures. Titanic would surpass the $1 billion mark in global box-office receipts (largely due to multiple viewings, the majority by teenage girls), win 11 Academy Awards including best picture and director, produce the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time, and make a global superstar of Leonardo DiCaprio. A bona fide pop-cultural phenomenon, the film has all the ingredients of a blockbuster (romance, passion, luxury, grand scale, a snidely villain, and an epic, life-threatening crisis), but Cameron's alchemy of these ingredients proved more popular than anyone could have predicted. His stroke of genius was to combine absolute authenticity with a pair of fictional lovers whose tragic fate would draw viewers into the heart-wrenching reality of the Titanic disaster. As starving artist Jack Dawson and soon-to-be-married socialite Rose DeWitt Bukater, DiCaprio and Kate Winslet won the hearts of viewers around the world, and their brief but never-forgotten love affair provides the humanity that Cameron needed to turn Titanic into an emotional experience. Present-day framing scenes (featuring Gloria Stuart as the 101-year-old Rose) add additional resonance to the story, and although some viewers proved vehemently immune to Cameron's manipulations, few can deny the production's impressive achievements. Although some of the computer-generated visual effects look artificial, others--such as the sunset silhouette of Titanic during its first evening at sea, or the climactic splitting of the ship's sinking hull--are state-of-the-art marvels. In terms of sets and costumes alone, the film is never less than astounding. More than anything else, however, the film's overwhelming popularity speaks for itself. Titanic is an event film and a monument to Cameron's risk-taking audacity, blending the tragic irony of the Titanic disaster with just enough narrative invention to give the historical event its fullest and most timeless dramatic impact. Titanic is an epic love story on par with Gone with the Wind, and like that earlier box-office phenomenon, it's a film for the ages. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product Description

In Canada, Titanic (blu ray) comes in three flavours: 1) Four disc 3D combo: two BD-50 discs dedicated to the entire 3D version, one BD-50 disc for the 2D version and one blu ray disc for Special Features, with Digital Copy. No standard DVD. 2) Four disc 2D combo: one BD-50 for the 2D version of movie, and second BD-50 for Special Features, and the remaining 2 discs being standard DVD dedicated to the standard version of the movie. 3) Two disc Blu Ray/DVD combo with Digital Copy: one Blu ray disc and one standard DVD (but also has the highest price)! In the 4 disc set, all four discs sit on flipper plates inside a slightly thicker than normal blue keepcase and accompanied by a glossy slipcover with lightly embossed lettering. All these packages are beamed with tons of bonus features, including 2.5 hours of new bonus content, that would keep me delightfully entertained for hours.
In the United States, there is an additonal Amazon.com exclusive Collector’s Edition box set, consisting of 2 3D blu ray discs and 2 2D blu ray discs, plus souvenir book, passenger dossier, sketch postcards, etc., housed in a big box, resembling the RMS Titanic. By the time one pays shipping and custom duty, the final cost will be around US$100….a little too steep for even frivolous spender like myself. But now, it is even out of stock on Amazon.com. I did enquire at Amazon.ca for its availability in Canada, but was politely told that this will not be available in Canada. Too bad!
Apart from 3D vs 2D, the major difference in video is that in 3D, it was 1.78:1 while 2D, it was a wonderful 2.35:1. I know that James Cameron personally preferred the smaller 1.78:1 aspect ratio (like Avatar).Read more ›
Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), a poor artist that lives on the edge, and does not waste life. Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet), a high class woman who lives a life that is not her own. The two are completed different, and that is what draws them to each other. At first you see the connection Jack has with Rose, and it blooms like a rose at the peak of summer. It escalates and you start to feel for these characters. You feel for them, and you don't need to justify their actions, because the character development is so strong, you really get to know their personality's. What they will do for each other, why they do these things.
The picture quality is amazing. You would not realize that this is a movie that came out 13 years ago. The 1080p transfer (Aspect ratio: 1.78) is really brilliant. Besides some of the green screen and animated segments -the sunrise in some of the shots- are surely dated, but that does not matter much. The film. The bluray is one disc, aside from 2 discs like the 3D version of the film. The 3D surpasses alot of now-a-day's conversion into 3D. This looks alot better than alot of movies that were ACTUALLY shot in 3D. The crowd's burst to life, and in my opinion, it makes the tragedy of the TITANIC even more disastrous, and surreal.
The audio is equally amazing. Again, this does not sound like a movie that is dated. The English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio is haunting, and makes it more surreal as the 3D presentation did.Read more ›
When I first started the movie and saw the scenes of the sunken Titanic I was instantly impressed. You would think that the movie was originally filmed with 3D cameras. Even the scenes with the actors on the sets have well defined depth. You do not get the viewmaster effect of cutout figures sitting in front of layers of flat images.
The 3D movie comes on two discs. If you want to just show off the 3D to friends and family without watching the entire film just pop in disc 2. It starts just after the ship hits the iceberg and all the action scenes start.
