Titanic Belfast

In 1985, an expedition discovered the wreckage of the RMS Titanic off the coast of Newfoundland. In the years that followed, the world renewed its obsession with the story of the doomed ocean liner. Sure, James Cameron’s Oscar-winning blockbuster had a lot to do with that, but Titanic Fever went far beyond the silver screen: I remember playing computer games on my family’s PC in which I walked around the deck of the ship, ducking into the gym or exploring corridors that led to fancy dining halls. The drastic juxtaposition between the ship’s lavish opulence and the tragic horrors that befell its passengers is still enough to capture the imagination.

On a recent trip to Northern Ireland, /Film visited Titanic Belfast, the world’s largest Titanic-related attraction. Shaped like a star as a shout-out to shipping company White Star Line, the building houses a massive, multi-story museum with interactive galleries, models, recreations of cabins, and a virtual tour of the ship’s decks. I brought some camera equipment along and made a video featuring some highlights of the experience, and you can watch our Titanic Belfast video below. Read More »

James Cameron Defends Titanic Ending

If there’s one detail in Titanic that has been scrutinized over and over again, it’s the ending that sees Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) freezing to death in the water while Rose (Kate Winslet) sits safely on top of a door floating in the ocean. Physicists have attempted to determine whether or not the door was bouyant enough to support both Jack and Rose while others have tried to determine if Jack and Rose could both even fit on the door. Mythbusters even had an entire segment dedicated to the issue. Now director James Cameron defends Titanic‘s ending, giving what should be the final word on the matter, specifically calling out the science show for their conclusion. Read More »
