Even after 100 years we have a fascination with the Titanic and her history, we can never get enough it seems and when we get new opportunities to delve deeper into the history and the eerie depths of the wreck we take it.
The stunning imagery in 3D HD is breath-taking and brings the shipwreck to life combining moving untold stories and information previously uncovered. I'm no expert in the Titanic or 3D but this combination certainly worked for me. I sat watching the Blu-ray and couldn't believe what I was seeing.
There were a few things that caught my imagination - seeing the Captain's cabin in 3D gave it a whole new depth; the boilers came to life as did the lifeboat davits that, when working, helped swing the lifeboats out for those fortunate to survive. With 3D you really had a real understanding of size and depth of the davits and how they were now used in the documentary to lay to rest one mystery explained in the presentation.
But for me it was the subtle floating dust that caught my eye. At least I think it was dust or some miniscule microbe floating in the ocean. Wearing the 3D glasses the dust would float all around and come towards you from left, right and centre - all over! It was quite a magical effect and one I didn't really get used to it being new to 3D, every time it happened I flinched a little!
Considering the majority of footage used is underwater the imagery is stunning. The interviews are basically just that, interviews and nothing to shout out about but they do add information previously unknown to me. Considering this isn't a movie I wasn't expecting anything special with the sound but it is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and the subwoofer certainly gets a subtle workover.
Stunning 3D footage of the Titanic and very enjoyable.
