We have watched this movie countless times. The love everlasting story between Rose and Jack was not the issue anymore when we watched the 3D version. It had been said that Cameron prepared a long time, about 60 weeks with production cost approximately $18 millions. Cameron restored the movie using 4K resolution which was able to produce high quality pictures.
The 3D version was very good, above the average of common 3D live action movie. Even the 4K revolution was not as sharp and clear as it was expected, however the picture tone was adequate to mix the CGI with its live pictures. It was clearly seen at the scene when Titanic started to sail to the seas. Foreground and the background in almost every scenes were presented fascinating enough, though sometime in a certain intimate moment, in fact “dissociate” the distance between the two characters. Sometimes the foreground which were purposively made a little vague looks annoying and when fast camera movement (tracking shot) the main object became not focus and uncomfortable to watch. Either it was the technical mistake of the exhibitor or it was what it should be.
Generally, the Titanic 3D version was very favorable, especially in the last half of the story up to its climax. The current generation of moviegoers who had not seen this movie yet, would enjoy the movie more. For the people who had repeatedly watched this movie, as if partook tasty dishes when they were not actually hungry. Only the eyes which savored, no longer the heart. (Score B)
