Titanic: 100 Years in 3D (Blu-ray)
8 September 2012
Excerpt: Titanic: 100 Years in 3D does not star Leonardo DiCaprio nor was it directed by James Cameron. Let's get that out of the way, just in case you were mildly confused. No one is painted in the nude. Nobody gets to say, "I'm king of the world!" A ship does sink, just not nearly as spectacularly as in the 1997 film of the same name. This is a straight-on documentary about the sinking of the mammoth ocean liner and the new 3D technology used to capture the images in the film.
Conclusion: Titanic: 100 Years in 3D is an often fascinating documentary, but it's also hampered by being too short and over generalized and by the fact that so much of its 3D imagery is of course underwater where general murkiness and shallowness of field work against a true "wow" dimensional experience. Still, the special offers some very compelling stories (albeit told very quickly) about several people on the liner, and the talking heads segments are unusually well done.
