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

Titanic (2D) splashes onto blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode. It was the same ratio as in the theatrical run. James Cameron also took great care in restoring this classic to its original glory. There is simply no comparison to all previous releases. In 2D version, the video filling up the entire screen (2.35:1), making the final result much more spectacular and more alive.
This high-def video is richly saturated with a wide range display of colours, from lush, vibrant primaries and warm, full-bodied secondary hues which bring Russell Carpenter's cinematography to life. Facial complexions appear natural with astounding lifelike textures. Contrast is pitch-perfect with crisp, brilliant whites that add for some highly impressive moments of clarity while black levels remain luxurious and sumptuous with deep penetrating shadows. Definition is razor-sharp and highly-detailed, allowing audiences to fully appreciate the tremendous amount of work and time that was put into the film's making. One can tell simply by just watching how sharp the word title Titanic on the screen is. One can also clearly make out the individual stitching and threading of the costumes, practically count each rivet holding the ship together, scrutinize the detailed, ornate woodwork of the grand staircase, and be amazed by the intricate details of the decorations on walls. The whole presentation really gives a completely refreshingly new video presentation on home video. (5+/5)
Titanic 2D comes with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless tracks. I am very familiar with James Horner’s amazing soundtrack. I even bought and enjoyed the recent 4 CD release of the Titanic soundtrack. (my review elsewhere).Read more ›
Opening with sepia-toned footage of the Titanic setting out on its first and final voyage, it then cuts to two Russian submersibles descending into the murky abyss. When the salvagers find a mysterious drawing of a girl wearing an exotic diamond necklace, an old woman claims she is the girl and thus begins her tragic tale.
Director (and co-producer) James Cameron has created an enduring and spectacular masterpiece. Every single shot is well-planned and works to propel the characters toward their final destiny. Cameron also wrote the screenplay, and the film's only flaw is his choppy dialogue throughout the romantic first act. Nevertheless, the visuals more than make up for it, as perfectionist Cameron has faithfully recreated the Titanic's magnificent interiors.
As the most expensive film ever made, every penny is evident on screen. Cameron himself even visited the legendary wreck to collect his own footage. The shots never cease to amaze, each one more breathtaking than the one before. And most of the computer-generated effects are blended so seamlessly into the narrative that they are often not evident. Composer James Horner's stirring score is occasionally dramatic but, for the most part, is hauntingly subdued and will linger in your mind.
The entire cast is first-rate.Read more ›
After watching the film again I was amazed at the story line. The story of the two lovers, Jack and Rose, is fiction, but the facts are spot-on. Some of the theories and mysteries of Titanic are explored, such as the guards holding back 3rd class passengers from getting up to the lifeboats.
The film shows the Titanic in all of its beautiful glory and all of its tragic mystery. After seeing the film for roughly the fourth time in my life, I was left with the same sense of enjoyment at seeing the love blossom, and the same sense of anger at those that avoided the iceberg warnings. It is amazing acted, awesome directed, and spectacularly produced. Titanic is probably the greatest film that I will ever see in my lifetime.
Ican't forget that movie, its music so beautiful and making me always cry when i listen to it, the characters who are very emotionnal, the costumes, the art direction, the visual effects (impressive!!! Bravo!!), the direction (thanks to James Cameron), the song amazingly sung by Celine Dion which made her also a super duper star!!!!!!!!
Titanic is the movie that nobody will forget even if it was released 6 years ago!!!!!!!!!
