Our Take:

I have always been a fan of the story of the Titanic, and because of this I have seen each movie and all the TV specials that had to do with the ship. From visiting museums locally to visiting exhibits in London, I have done a lot to see Titanic exhibits and the like. The movie Titanic, well I remember seeing this in the theaters during the first run three times! Yes I saw this movie three times in the theater, it was a great movie. But the movies all started with this black and white classic from 1953.  Sorry guys there is no Jack and Rose in this film but it is still a spectacular retelling of the fateful night in 1912. What a film. I just fell into it and it kept me on the edge of my seat. My husband had never seen this version of the movie, but he loved it as much as I did.  Just to think of being put in that position… to have to stay or leave my husband, it just makes me shutter just thinking of it.

Now with the Blu-ray there is so much more to love about this movie.  This movie looks as great on my TV. I would highly recommend this new dvd  see the movie again for the first
