The innocence of The Titanic love story between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the delighting two stars who anchor the grand spectacle, is why the spectacular action that marks the second half of the more than 3-hour running time works. The chasm of class, the hubris of man, the spectacle of invention, and the wonder of love and humanity are threads woven through this once in a lifetime film experience. Arriving on 4K for the first time, in standard and collector’s edition packaging, this is reference disc quality and an absolute treat for fans of the film and fans of big cinema.

Thanks for the review, Neil. There’s a shot in previous releases that stick out like a sore thumb- it’s looking down onto the deck, where one can easily spot CGI people walking about. I wonder if the UHD upgrade calls even more attention to this and other digital enhancements.

I'm sure it does, but the only fix would be to George Lucas the effects, and that would open up a big ol' can of online outrage.

No one “deserves” an Oscar nomination. It is earned.

That's a lovely sentiment, and perhaps it might even be true in some alternate fairy tale universe where shiny gold trophies are given out based on merit. But in our actual reality, Oscar nominations are little more than a popularity contest and a measure of whose PR team can spend more money on their publicity campaign.

Well….if you say so I guess. 😆

I’m still very much of the belief that Rose could’ve scooted over by an inch or two. Nonetheless, I’ll be making some of my own budgetary room for this 4K/UHD upgrade, which clearly does float and most definitely rocks the boat.

On a final note, Neil Middlemiss scores high on another great review. Always appreciated.:thumbs-up-smiley:
