We all know the tragic event that happened one hundred years ago, which remains to this day as one of the biggest disasters in the world. James Cameron does his films with style, Titanic and Avatar being no exception. With the majority of his films being huge successes, it’s no surprise to see one of his classics gracing our screens once again to re-capture those fantastic moments.
I am not a fan of 3D, however, I can’t fight it alone. More and more films are being released in this format and although there has been signs of its decline, it’s managing to pull through. The last film I watched which included some satisfying three dimensions was A very Merry Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas. Titanic on the other hand had a few effects but nothing sufficient to make it stand out.
Titanic is about two strangers coming together who have very contrasting backgrounds in life; the rich and the poor. The factual story is told in the point of the lead female character who survived the crash and talks us through the accurate details of what actually happened on that momentous day.
Rose (Kate Winslet) travels first class and is engaged to a rich snob, Cal (Billy Zane). Rose feels like she has no say or control with her own life, and just when she had enough, she meets a young charming man called Jack Dawson(Leo DiCaprio) who shows her a life of excitement and exploration on the magnificent ship, Titanic.
People still don’t accurately know what happened on the ship that night and many questions still remain unanswered. Titanic will deliver strong feelings through the Three hours and fifteen minute masterpiece, showing the devastation and risks taken. The directing and CGI effects were superb and proves why James Cameron is so highly praised for his work. Titanic 3D will cater for new audiences and existing audiences, and is a great example to why older films should come back to our big screens.
