Near, Far, Wherever You Areeeee

For reasons of protecting whatever shred of coolness I possessed, I have never divulged just how big of a  Titanic fan I was when it first came out...and truth be told I still am. When the movie came out 15 years ago (really? 15 years ago?!) I was a 13 year old that was gaga for Leonardo, had two fish named Jack and Rose and I saw the movie (in the theatre) ....10 times. Do you still love me?

So when Katelin asked if I would be interested in reviewing the new blue ray version/15th anniversary/100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking version of the movie I said YES,I'LL NEVER LET GO KATELIN! I received a journal (similar to Jack's in the movie)-I told Jon to draw me like one of his French girls and he said it would be awkward for all involved. So I guess I'll just have to use the journal for something else. I also received a remastered, anniversary edition, of the soundtrack. Not only does the soundtrack have all of the beautiful music from the first time around but it has music from the period of the Titanic. So cool right? It also came with four Titanic luggage stickers.

Now let's not forget about the star of the show-the movie itself. The movie is totally remastered and now with blu-ray and high definition I really feel like the movie can now be seen at home in a way that lives up to the quality and detail that is inherent to the movie! (see I told you I was serious about this). So you may be wondering if this fancy schmancy anniversary edition is worth picking up?-I would have to say heck yes! Its perfect for the OTF (original Titanic Fan) and the detail  in high definition is perfect for being introduced to it a first time!
