TITANIC 3D (2012)
A friend asked me, “Will the movie look exactly the same as 1997s version? “ I spontaneously told him, “Well, the ship will still be sinking.” Ha ha… But seriously, it’s an unforgettable experience and definitely worth seeing! James Cameron invites us to revisit the RMS Titanic and thiz time in 3D. And you know what? I still get goosebumps ever since the first 10 minutes I saw thiz movie. I admit that everyone can make a review on “Titanic”, surely everyone has something to say about thiz movie. It’s not just that the ship is gigantic but it’s also literally big as a movie. The Director James Cameron did explore almost everything. The real tragic event with the latest forensic science and one of the most beautiful stories ever told. Thiz is the man who brought you “Aliens” (1986), “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” (1991) and "Avatar" (2009). A simple adventurer Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) won a ticket in a lucky hand at poker for the journey of a lifetime, where he meets a desperate aristocrat Rose (Kate Winslet) who suffers anguish after being forced to marry a rich steel tycoon Cal Hockley (Billy Zane). The journey is going to change their lives forever. The other Cast members are Kathy Bates, Bill Paxton, Frances Fisher, Victor Garber and Bernard Hill as Captain Edward James Smith. The cinematography is splendid. What I do remember is the dynamic camera movements, the afternoon sunshine, the wind, the wave, everything! I’m always impressed by how they capture the moment of “I’m Flying Scene”, when Jack teaches Rose how to step over the big ship’s prow and spread her arms wide. The chemistry seems so natural and sincere. The love story is compelling in every possible way. It’s like “Romeo and Juliet” kind of thing. “You Jump, I jump” is also one of my absolute favorite moments. Yes, we do care about Jack and Rose. The elderly Rose who is played by Gloria Stuart also deserves mention for her memorable performance. Stuart successfully brings the story alive with her powerful storytelling. The song from Celine Dion, “My Heart Will Go On” is not just great, but it’s legendary! Once again, it is worth watching in 3D. Although thiz re-release version is the conversion result from 2D standard material to 3D, but it’s your best chance to experience the magical wonder which feels like you’re actually standing on the deck of Titanic. One day you can proudly tell your kids or even your grandchildren that you saw "Titanic" in the theater. Yes, thiz will be a historic moment! I have to say, I love the ending. It’s one of the greatest ending scenes in cinematic history. Spoiler Alert! After the elderly Rose passes away, in afterlife somehow she’s young again and meets the love of her life Jack at staircase in the main lobby of the Titanic. Then they’re just kissing. It’s so sweet and overwhelming. The movie reminds us that nothing is eternal, but still a specific moment can be eternal in our hearts. So are you ready to go back to Titanic?

"Winning that ticket was the best thing that ever happened to me. It brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful… You must do me thiz honor. You must promise me that you'll survive. That you won't give up... No matter what happens. No matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose. And never let go of that promise."
