Did You Know?


James Cameron talks with the panel about the presence of the Californian only six miles away from the Titanic, and what could have been done to save more of the Titanic's passengers and crew. However, in his film Titanic (1997), the Californian is never mentioned. The Californian does figure prominently in another Titanic film, A Night to Remember (1958). See more »

Titanic: Final Word with James Cameron (2012)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent documentary has director James Cameron sitting down with eight experts as they try to discover what really happened that tragic night when over 1,500 died. The nine men are basically locked in a room where they look at updated data, new animation, actual photos and various other bits of information. The group basically want to know why the ship sank so quickly, why it broke in two and at various speeds that all of this happened. People can say what they want about the attitude or cockiness of Cameron but there's no denying that he knows how to make a movie. This documentary was meant to be his final word on the subject and it's clear that he wanted it to be the final word on what really happened that night. I'm sure others will come along to debunk the evidence shown here and I'm sure there are a few members of this panel that doesn't agree with everything that is said. It does seem clear that Cameron had the final word on everything but there's no denying that this is an incredibly interesting documentary because it brings to life so many new theories on what happened and we get some wonderful computer animation showing what might have happened and when. We also get some beautiful diagrams of the ocean floor and we get to see where everything was located. Not only do we see it but we also get diagrams of how the stuff got where it landed. The documentary ends with some very interesting segments including one where they debate what could have been done to save everyone on board. Cameron also talks about some of the mistakes in his movie but thankfully he says he's not going to fix them and is going to let the movie stand. History buffs and those just curious with the romance of Titanic should really enjoy this documentary. Who knows if it will really be Cameron's final word on the subject but it's certainly a terrific document of the events.
