I was 18 and in college. I feel quite old now.

I saw this a minimum of 6 times in the theater during its initial run. Can't wait to see it again. Currently jazzed for the showing of Casablanca that Turner Classic is doing in select theaters this Wednesday. Seeing that on the big screen is going to be a big treat.

You do know Titanic is more than three hours long. Going to be an expensive night.

Man, I have four older sisters. I know how long it is.


Also, I was like four days away from turning 15 when this came out.

I was also ten at the time, and well into my "real boys don't cry at movies" phase, which made it all the more embarrassing when I left the theater as a wet melting pile of goo.

A lot of the wood content on the ship has also been eaten away. There are even microorganisms devouring the actual steel on Titanic as well.

Wasn't it said that the steel could be gone in the next 25yrs or so?

Next year's Oscars are going to be very interesting anyway. Spielberg will be coming out with a real heavy hitter for the first time since Munich. Then you have PTA and a whole bunch of others.

Kagari needs to raise $60k:

Now trips to the famed site are much easier: wealthy tourists can pay around $60,000 to take a 8-10 hour trip in a submersible vehicle down to see the actual site themselves.


Also, this one is great:

The Titanic had four funnels, that is correct. Cameron shows smoke coming from all four funnels in the movie, this is incorrect as one of the funnels was not even a chimney and was completely for show.

Not a huge mistake but it's enough for me to nitpick!

Uh... pay closer attention. The fourth funnel doesn't have smoke coming from it. It has steam, which was accurate. It was more for ventilation of the turbine engine room in addition to being a "dummy" funnel.

I remember the video of the guy talking about how Cameron wanted to correct the sky because it was inaccurate, it would be surprising if he fucked up something as blatant as the funnels.

It's not a perfect recreation though, it's shorter than the Titanic was.

There are very prominent scenes of the sky and apparently the positions of the stars aren't accurate based on the location of the Titanic. I'll look for the video that talks about it, it's pretty cool.

Oddly, there is a more clear issue with the sky on the DVD versions, the banding is very bad.

That is a thing they should fix for the Blu-ray release.

If you are talking about the footage of the submerged ship, in the movie it is not a set, is the actual ship, they made a huge deal about it from what I remember.

I dislike the movie as I do most of Cameron's films, but he is a master of advertisement and production values, kind of like a Michel Bay, without the obnoxiousness.

That area in the ship was not filmed until 2005. A lot of the interior wreck shots were recreated in a tank set. James Cameron just happened to guess very accurately here.

As for "fake" wreck footage, here's my protip:
Every scene when you see both subs in the shot, that scene has been done with models :)

Some of the footage of the wreck is real, but the stuff inside the stateroom finding the safe is a recreation IIRC.
