Titanic

The third Titanic release in six years promises glory but skates by on scant fresh bonus material. The film, meanwhile, has never looked or sounded better (6.1 DTS ES, if you’re curious), and the Cecil B. DeMille comparisons on an uproarious crew video are apt. Among the recycled EXTRAS, new lures include over 45 minutes of deleted footage, with thrilling shots of the doomed couple kissing under a shooting star and running in a complex, expensive chase sequence. Less captivating is an alternate ending emphasizing the ”epiphany” Brock (Bill Paxton) experiences, seeing the error of his diamond-lusting ways. Leonardo DiCaprio is still notably absent, but Kate Winslet quips about the embrace on the bow at sunset: ”We were like, ‘Ugh, God, we are so over this scene!”’ Director James Cameron recalls it differently, with trademark humility: ”This is one of those great moments in cinema.”
