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

Nonetheless, James Cameron's spectacle is brilliant in many aspects. It show us both sides of society: from rich to poor, love and the lack of it on an individual (even though some moments are downright clumsy), the so-called "men" society, how superior many of them thought they were against the elements, etc. The list goes on... and this compact portrait sailing to the sea is only magnified once the iceberg hits... yet I always end up wishing it didn't. Thinking it may have missed by a few inches... the truth is otherwise. If nothing of the sort had ever happened, and the Titanic did complete its run, this movie would be a huge and almost too unbelievable "what if" story.
Boasting almost 2 hours of newly-produced special features, the complete running time almost comes to a titanic (forgive the pun) 5 hours worth of visual supplements. And what a wonderful package of bonus it is. Documentaries on what really happened on the boat as it sank (almost in real time, and hosted by Cameron himself), as well as a retrospective doc on the movie's 15 years anniversary. As for the rest, the entirety of the 2-disc DVD special edition have been ported over for blu-ray, with deleted scenes, interviews, on-set footage, making-ofs, trailers, etc. You name it.
The film's success can only be compared to the boat's tragedy. And at the time, waaay back in 1997, summer was the season it was supposed to be released. Yet, it was pushed back a few months, which worried many people (myself included) and made them fear for the worse (it may be hard to realize, but this was considered a "flop in the making")... almost $200 million of budget later and almost a $2.2 billion in box office returns, it is safe to say that Titanic is far from a flop. And its many Academy Awards were almost all justified, paving the way for two of today's most excellent actors: Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
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. The sloshing of the water, the splitting of the wood, all of those haunting sounds come off clear and crisp. The film is very haunting, thinking about all of the lost lives, and this presentation makes it so real.
The Special Features included are brought in bulk. The DVD version of this release included "about an hour of special features", where as the bluray contains 2 & 1/2 of NEW content, making it around 6 hours in total:

All in all, this release is well worth the price it is now, and how much it was for preorder's ($27.99 now $34.99). For newcomer's, and for long time fans, this is a bluray you want, and need to pick up. I myself am a newcomer to the movie, but I knew exacly what it was about, and what happened, but it was just as emotional as it would have been if I didn't know. This was a blind buy, and I am so glad I did it.
