Just got the Titanic Movie this past week and watched it. It's on two disks. I was very impressed with the quality of the 3D given that it was a conversion. If this is what conversions are able to achieve, I say bring them on. There were some scenes with very little depth but where the depth really enhanced the story it was well done. In scenes where there was little depth the entire scene was pushed back showing a distant look, such as a long shot under water.
The technical quality of the 3D was very good with plenty of brightness for my projector and 1.0 gain screen. My non technical wife really enjoyed the 3D, said she preferred it to the 2D version.
In the original film there were at the time, state of the art animation sequences of people walking awkwardly on deck that were all CGI people images using inverse kinematic motion. None of this (not realistic) CGI was corrected for more natural motion and movement but just a sense of depth was added. Today these scenes would have been done using motion capture stages for a more fluid like movement but none of this has anything to do with 3D.
Both my wife and I were very impressed with the quality and are pleased to add this to our collection. It's a movie we will watch from time to time, a classic in our opinion.
