Titanic back to product details

Number one movie of the century

Yes, it was the most expensive and it earned the most. But "Titanic" is so much more. Special effects that disappear and look like reality. A great, great story about a working-class Romeo and his high born Juliet. The masterful pacing - from the moment the iceburg is struck until the rudder of the Titanic goes under, the timing is in REAL TIME - just as it happened. That and skillfully blending so many movie cliche together seamlessly and a great, great score by James Horner, blending tradition instruments with human choir, orchestra, synthesisers, and samples. Tales of heroes and tales of people scared to death and acting the fool. As the band played on. And the story has a moral for our time, to remember that no matter how much we think our technology is prefect, we must be prepared for it to fail. I think I probably give this theme more weight, being in the computer industry, where we fail so many times. If I was to be taken to another planet and allow to bring only one movie, this would be it.

I have seen it six times at the theater and many times at home and never fails to move to tears. Especially at the end, when that great diamond is returned to the sea.

And it has the only Celine Dion song that I ever liked. This movie - and it is a movie and not a film - deserved every award it won. Thank you, James Cameron!

If you EVER have the chance to see it in 70mm, do it!

And finally, in Cameron's other words, "Titanic is not just a cautionary tale - a myth, a parable, a metaphor for the ills of mankind. It is also a story of faith, courage, sacrifice and, above all else, love."

Incredible epic

One of the most realistic and marvelous undertakings in the history of cinema. The impressive acting performances of Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, and Kathy Bates are worth the view alone.
