I might take one of my friends to go see this since I was 4 when it first came out.
I was ten. It was fucking amazing.
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.
 
just like many other i also remember my first time watching it. i was fucking stunned by the epicness! not sure if im gonna watch it again thought... maybe.... haha. just to see the 3d maybe.
 
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:

 
my body (heart) is ready.

love this movie and I don't give a shit. I hate the people at work that make fun of me for being excited to see it again.

chick flick.. leo is lame DERP

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.


James Cameron will be host to a National Geographic special in April: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/titanic/final-word-with-james-cameron/
 
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.
 
I lol'd when the trailer sold the movie as a work from the guy who made Avatar.

Otherwise, never seen it. Not planning to, especially for fucking 3D.
 
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.
 
whoa, the set they used in the movie is exact, even down to the debris near the fireplace.
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.
