Trivia

Was the most-voted-for film on IMDb that is not on the Top 250 List. However, it was overtaken by James Cameron''s Avatar (2009). See more »

Goofs

As the camera pulls back from Jack's "king of the world" shot and performs a flyover of the ship, we see the officer who comes out to report the ship's speed to Captain Smith walking very uncannily with a very deliberate and exceptionally large gate. This is because, instead of using a live aerial camera to capture the footage, Cameron chose to use 3D motion capture footage of individual characters performing actions and added them in post production. During the motion capture shoot, the actor playing the officer would have been shot walking without a particular goal or destination in mind. See more »

Brock Lovett: Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: [seeing the shipwreck come into view for the first time] OK; take her up and over the bow rail.

Alternate Versions

In addition to the 'starfield' alteration noted above, some minor cosmetic changes were made to the 2012 3D re-release. Lighting and camera equipment visible during certain scenes were digitally removed, as were mountains and city lights that could briefly be seen from the Titanic deck (as these scenes were shot in Baja, Mexico). In addition, the Paramount logo at the start has been replaced with the logo that debuted in 2011 for the studio's 100th Anniversary. See more »

Amazing
3 June 2002 | by baybeeSee all my reviews

I saw this movie opening day and it took my breath away. James Cameron's fictional story of Jack and Rose entwined with real life occurances was haunting and absolutely beautiful. He is an amazing director and writer that this movie would not have worked without him.

Kate Winslet was stunning as Rose and this movie belonged to her as you couldn't imagine anyone else playing this role.

Leonardo DiCaprio was really good as Jack and he should have had an an Oscar nomination for this role and the ever brilliant Billy Zane didn't disappoint in his role as Rose's fiance Cal. His portrayl of Cal was so evil that despite being an awful person, you couldn't help but feel sorry for him, especially when despite all his doings he loved Rose so much.

James Horner's music was just as haunting and he always lifts the movie he works on to the ultimate level.

Kathy Bates was equally impressive in a small role and provided quite a few of the laughs of the film.

Everything from the special effects, to the sets to the costumes were pure magic.

This would have to be one of the most wonderful films of the 20th Century and one that will never be forgotten.
