Titanic is the ultimate cinematic vehicle for its actors, director, producers, screenwriters...hell, it's likely that even the staff accountants and caterers won some awards and have enjoyed an ensuing 15 years of career successes and royalties.
3D is the ultimate cinematic vehicle for polarizing audiences. Though popular with audiences and a growing number of directors, there is a Facebook page dedicated to denigrating the medium, and Christopher Nolan, the man behind the Batman Dark Knight reboot and such films as Inception and The Prestige, has been noted as refusing to use the gimmick in his work.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the film's namesake ship setting sail, a 3D release is planned on April 6 of this year. What is your take on the 3D release of the film that spent more than a decade atop the list of highest-grossing films ever? Is this just a greedy ploy by James Cameron, an effort to make a fresh generation of teen girls weep for Jack and Rose? Or does the film's cinematic prowess justify a second release in a third dimension?
Is Titanic 3D a good idea?
