â€œPromise me Jack, youâ€™ll never let go.â€ Â Thatâ€™s just one of three things that I remember from the movie. Â To be fair I was just a young teenager when James Cameronâ€™s Titanic came out in the theatres. Â I remember going to see it though I donâ€™t think I really grasped it back then. Â Itâ€™s themes were a bit too complex for teenage me. Â All we did is joke about how the boat sinks at the end (sorry for the spoiler). Â Now 15 years later itâ€™s back in theatres for a limited engagement now this time in 3D!
Yes he did it. Â James Cameron, the pioneer of great 3D movies (Avatar â€“ if I do say so Â myself) has taken his big epic boat and 3D-ified it. Â To be honest this prospect really didnâ€™t excite me at all. That was until I came across this review article at Vulture that touted how great the movie is. Â It wasnâ€™t that the author thought the movie itself was great but he touted how great the movie looked in 3D. Â In fact the author admitted to not caring too much for the movie plot 15 years ago. Â Apparently the work James did to remake the world in 3D just truly enhanced all of those scenes. Â You can read all his details by clicking the link above. Â Iâ€™ll give another nod to the movie for its two leads. Â Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet were pretty spectacular in their respective roles and both have had very successful careers since then.
So Iâ€™m not exactly running to the theatre to see this new rendition. Â Itâ€™s only been out for one day (re-premiered April 4th) so thereâ€™s some time. Â It may or may not fit into my schedule. Â When I do get to see it maybe Iâ€™ll remember more than those three things. Â Oh, by the way, the other two things I remember are carriage car sex (teenage boy) and â€œMy heart will go on.â€
What do you think? Â Going to see it or not?
