    The film that everybody had to see - often many times - back in 1997. For some reason...

    But who watches it now?

    And does it stand up well today?





    And then there was that song of course....

    I was dragged to the theatre four times for this one. Honestly, I don't think it's a terrible film. However, four times is overkill. At least I was treated to Billy Zane at his OTT best. And, of course, a naked Kate Winslet.

    I haven't watched it in quite a while, so I don't know if it still holds up.

    It was okay. I wouldn't rush to see it again or anything.

    I love Titanic! It's cheesy at times, but James Horner's score is memorably sweeping, the special effects are incredible and I cry every time at the end.

    The real Jack Dawson? Man suing James Cameron for stealing his life story for Titanic

    A Florida man is suing Titanic director James Cameron for basing the character of Jack Dawson, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, on his life.


    Stephen Cummings claims he's the inspiration behind the tale of doomed love aboard the ill-fated liner and he wants $300 million plus one per cent of royalties.

    According to TMZ he used to work in the yacht industry and says the film director heard about him and events that happened in his life in 1988 and 1989 in Brevard County through the grapevine.

    He also claims that the doomed love story between Jack and Rose in the film was not based on historic fact but was based on stories he told his mates about relatives of his who were aboard Titanic.

    The wife survived the disaster while the husband did not which is how it played out for Jack and Rose (and possibly hundreds of other unfortunate couples among the 1517 who died).

    Dolby Laboratories, Paramount Pictures and AMC Theatres have announced that multi-Oscar winner “Titanic” is set to return to select cinemas nationwide for an exclusive one-week engagement in Dolby Cinema at AMC.

    In celebration of the film’s twenty-year anniversary at Dolby Cinemas AMC locations, including 20 locations supporting 3D, a new remastered print of the film will be screened beginning December 1st.

    This will be the first-ever release of “Titanic” in Dolby Vision in 2D and 3D and a direct result of ongoing partnerships with both James Cameron and Paramount Pictures. Cameron says in a statement:

    “We mastered a few minutes of ‘Titanic’ in Dolby Vision and I was stunned. It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the U.S.. This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it’s beyond anything you’ve seen before. The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself. This is the way all movies should be seen and without a doubt, ‘Titanic’ has NEVER looked better.”

    Moviegoers can purchase tickets online at AMCTheatres.com/Titanic, with each Titanic ticket transaction including a free digital movie download of “Titanic” redeemable at ParamountMovies.com while supplies last.
