I have a serious man-crush on Cameron (Ridley Scott too - he hand sketches better than most architects I know). Is that so wrong?

You missed the Tutankhamun tour?

Actually, she looks a lot like Robin Wright in that video.

Before marrying Cameron, Suzy Amis was an actress in numerous starring roles. Even played a female passing herself off as a male (years before Hilary Swank) in BALLAD OF LITTLE JO. (And if anyone's forgotten, she was also in TITANIC).

I'm not crazy about seeing Titanic again least in 3D I'd probably removes the glasses and listen to the Dolby digital cinema sound as that is what draw me, into the film in 1997 December optical Dolby Stereo only as the cinema was only fitted with CP50 and then year after at another cinema only few doors down in Dolby SR-D via Dolby DA20 though a CP200 and it made a whole of difference which I saw sadly 14 times.

As well as projecting it once for Warner Bros village cinemas, and that was fun, as the cake platter motor broke-down and it was all new cinema. I and co projectionist we both took turns to turn the cake platter around and the proof was on our hands after the 3 hours our hands where black from all the aluminium besides both our arms where aching and it was near midnight.

So that is what can happen in booth and as they say, "the show must go on".

Cameron, mentioned about “economics of it” well its worked with other re-releases in the past of 25 30 years ago original STAR WARS must have been big over 3D re-releases of it as I’m, not least bit interested in STAR WARS no more as there not originals! At least the Titanic is original to the theatrical release, I hope?

I'd sooner prefer to original ALIENS in 70mm Dolby Stereo as I never saw the 70mm print in the cinema only 35mm optical versions which was still scary great listening fun. but 70MM is "the king of the world".

I have a fear that sooner or later these dives that Cameron and Bob Ballard attempt are going to end in disaster. I hope I'm wrong.

They've said the same thing about all these "gentlemen explorers", guys like Sir Edmund Hillary and others. Sometimes they don't come back. But they push the frontiers, and there are always going to be guys like them who are willing to take great risks to make great discoveries. Thankfully.

But Cameron is no fool. He tested this torpedo thing for 5 years, including a 5 mile deep dress rehearsal. He's got the best engineers and the best equipment money can buy designing and building these apparatus. Ballard too. They'll survive.

And even if he does get croaked, I'm sure Cameron would rather go out that way than sitting around on his money mountain at home not doing anything worthwhile.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

I think you're probably right with that, he has always pushed.

In honor of this thread I finally gave in and smacked down $20 on Glyde.com for Avatar Extended Blu-Ray. Meh. Was holding out for a 3D TV first but I don't see that happening any time soon...

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

'Avatar 2' Delayed? Producer Jon Landau Says Pandora Return Might Not Happen Until 2015

"Avatar 2" isn't as close to reality as you'd hope.

Speaking with Empire, producer Jon Landau revealed that the chances of an "Avatar" sequel hitting theaters by December of 2014 are dwindling rapidly.

"We're not really naming dates, but I think 2014 will be a tough date for us to make," he said. "To us, it's about getting it right. [...] The first 'Avatar' was supposed to be 2008, it was 2009. Movies make release dates, release dates don't make movies."

About that dates thing: Back in January of last year, Cameron told EW.com that he was looking to send fans back to Pandora during the Christmas seasons in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

I am in the process of writing the next two Avatar films now," he said. "We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart. Christmas '14 and '15 is the current plan.

Before you get too upset about the likely delay, note that "Avatar 2" is already in pre-production. Landau told Empire that plans are in motion with WETA, the visual effects house responsible for "Avatar" and "Lord of the Rings," to create new environments, including underwater sequences.

"It's not going to be all under water," Landau allowed. "It's going to be a place that we go to."

Sunday - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM Titanic: The Final Word with James Cameron

James Camerons epic 1997 film Titanic won 11 Oscars and grossed well over a billion dollars worldwide. Now, on an empty sound stage, in the shadow of a massive 42-foot replica of the Titanic and other props from the blockbuster film, Cameron brings together some the worlds leading Titanic experts, including engineers, naval architects, artists and historians, to solve the lingering mysteries of why and how the unsinkable ship sank.

My DVR is set.

It was filled with water would be my guess.

The Bob Ballard film is interesting as well. I think it aired one night before JC's film. I had no idea there was tourism going on. At 60k a pop, it's not something most of us can do.

I just got done watching the JC Titanic special on NGC.

Absolutely fascinating...
I thought I might be bored, but there is a lot of new information regarding the sinking.

Hopefully, this special will be on the upcoming BD set.

BTW, the Ballard show will be broadcasted Monday night.

It felt like one big promo for the upcoming 3D release. A little tease here and a little tease there.

I did enjoy the detailed animation of the debris field and how that came about.

Tonight I'll watch the one with Bob Ballard that I recorded last night.

Also, tonight on my local PBS @8, I'll be recording:

The Titanic With Len Goodman


The legacy of the Titanic is explored by "Dancing With the Stars" judge Len Goodman, who once worked as an apprentice welder for the company that built the ship. He visits Belfast, where it was built, and Southampton, England, home to many of the dead, and meets with descendants of the passengers and crew.

I'm a Titanic junkie. I don't think I've ever missed a program about the Titanic.

My favorite Titanic movie: A Night to Remember (1958)
