Was reported on this very site two weeks ago, check the news section. The announcement will just rubber stamp the details contained in the news story.
fingers firmly crossed for a full bit-rate DTS soundtrack..the DTS Laserdisc soundtrack was awesome
It seems like Ive been waiting for this forever, I havent bought this on DVD yet and still have my VHS: SE set.
I think Im the only one who actually enjoyed this film
Not true: I thought it was brilliant! Sentimental, sure, but that didn't bother me. A technically brilliant spectacle, in any event. I'm hoping there'll be a 10th anniversary re-release at the movie theaters in '07. This is one of those films that has to be seen on a large screen (and I don't mean 50" ).
Completely agree! I would love to see this on the big screen again!
Why make a special edition of a film that sucks donkey balls as much as this does
See what I mean!
You've got 2 hopes mate...Bob and no!! A full bit rate dts track will sound no different to a well mixed DD/half bit rtae track anyway...
Just my personal opinion matey.
I really like the film! Only have it on VHS but will buy a DVD sometime.
Because many people like the movie?
I know, and sadly you're not the only one who thought it was crap!
I liked this movie as well and have been waiting for a proper release. The only thing that makes me want to curl up and die, is DiCaprio's fake laughing when they come up from below decks.
Di Caprio should have been smothered at birth IMO
I will not watch this film ever, even if I was threatened to be torn apart by four horses
Then that's your loss mate...DiCaprio is one of the best actors in Hollywood at the moment (and that's not just MY opinion...lifetime achievement award at 30 yaers old...?) - admitidilliy, not his best work, but think of all the other gems your missing out on...Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator to name but 2...
Gangs of New York to name 3...
I thought he was brilliant in Catch Me If You Can.
I'm sorry, but I just don't like the bloke. It could be down Jealously I suppose (the fact he used to go out get drunk cause trouble, pull the birds & not get punished for causing trouble in his early days methinks)
Oh, I have seen little bits & pieces of Titanic (trailers) but not enough to warrant me watching it....
I have mixed feelings about this film.
I feel i should hate it, as it does have a girlie (cheesy) romantic theme.
Yet i will admit to being totally immersed and thrilled on my first viewing! (in the cinema)
I always giggle when Leo dies, but this is mainly down to all the women of the household, sat there crying their eyes out!
From a cinematic point of view, the film is spectacular and really does need to be seen on a very large screen. I'm afraid even a 50" plasma just doesn't do it justice.(Unless you sit close!)
The original disc was ok, but really needed a anamorphic transfer.
I will buy the new disc, but don't think i would go see it again at the cinema.
IMAX format would be fine with me!
Wasn't Cameron opposed to any DVD release, by the way? I remember hearing that he also felt this was a film that had to be seen at a movie theater...
Considering the film made over $1 billion, it's fair to assume that quite a lot of people watched it. Mind you, I've heard it suggested that the reason it made so much is not because a vast number of people watched it, but because so many 12-year-old girls went to the cinema to see it 6 or 7 times (presumably so they could spend the whole time muttering to themselves that Kate was far too old for Leo - despite the fact that she's actually younger than he is).
Personally I thought it was an impressive spectacle, I thought Kate deserved her Oscar nomination, and I enjoyed some of the interesting character actors farther down the cast list (Bernard Hill, Kathy Bates, David Warner, Jonathan Hyde). But I couldn't stand DiCaprio, and Billy Zane was even worse.
Ms Winslet suffered both the worst and best moments in the film, the worst being when (spoiler, highlight to read) she jumps off the lifeboat back onto the ship again, and the best being when she says, with a perfectly straight face, "when this ship docks I'm getting off with you".
Is there anyone else out there who liked both "Reservoir Dogs" AND "Titanic"?
(Or, for that matter, "Man Bites Dog" AND "Roman Holiday"? )
I liked "Reservoir Dogs" and "Roman Holiday" - does that count?
Man bites dog: scary film I love all 3, Titanic is ok, 'ish'. I'll still buy the 4 disc SE though
hey grimley ..you must really think titanic is bad! seeing as you have wild wild west in your collection!!!!!! lol
Now that was a terrible film!
call me childish, but the best bit by far was when she posed nude for the painting
On Di Caprio - he's a good actor when he's not in "pretty boy" mode, so in stuff like The Basketball Diaries and What's Eating Gilbert Grape he was excellent, but then he had the phase starting with Romeo and Juliet of "I don't need to act, I'm good looking!" which IMO was at it's peak in Titanic. Fortunately he's past that now, and as such his standard of acting has gone back up...
