One of the best and most famous reviews of the film was done by Kenneth Turan because after his review, it enraged James Cameron so much that he contacted the publication that Turan worked at and wished for him to be fired. This little spectacle that Cameron had to make because one person didn't write a good review solitified Cameron's "Ass of Hollywood" persona.
'Titanic' Sinks Again (Spectacularly)
To the question of the day--what does $200 million buy?--the 3-hour-and-14-minute "Titanic" unhesitatingly answers: not enough.
Note that despite the hopes of skeptics, aghast at the largest film budget of modern times, money enough to run a full-dress presidential campaign or put a serious dent in illiteracy, the answer is not nothing. When you are willing to build a 775-foot, 90% scale model of the doomed ship and sink it in a 17-million-gallon tank specially constructed for the purpose, you are going to get a heck of a lot of production value for your money. Especially if your name is James Cameron.
Personally, I'm really excited to go see Titanic in 3D but I don't know what to expect from it. What is going to make it remarkable? Why does it need to be re-released in 3D? Will it make me fall in love with the movie all over again? All of these questions and many more are racing through my head but they won't be resolved until I leave that theater on Saturday night (the night I plan to go see it because of a coupon that is being offered).
For information about the coupon I just talked about here is the link to the AMC website. AMC COUPON
