Yes, it is time to return to the chilly North Atlantic to appreciate again James Cameron's glorious epic, for its scope, underappreciated script and perfect casting.

Two spitting scenes in 3D and Jack Dawson loses his virginity. A second look indicates a cruel streak in the modern epic.

Spoiler alert! The ship still sinks.

It is, simply, a great film, a throwback to classic filmmaking, and more than that, an experience with unusual resonance to the world of today.

The kind of mass death spectacle Michael Bay is frequently accused (and often guilty) of partaking in is much better encapsulated in Titanic's final third.

If you can get past the occasional Cameron clunker (Who can forget, "I'm the king of the world!") and Zane's almost amusingly over-the-top turn as Cal, Titanic still manages to make the tragedy seem more vivid than a statistic in a history book.

Forget that we know how it all ends; it's the drama of dealing with eventuality that tells the real story here.

15 years ago, I didn't let Titanic into my heart, now I get it. Movie is fantastic, but utterly fails as a 3D reissue.

While Titanic can't touch Cameron's true classics, The Terminator and Aliens, it's nevertheless better than Avatar, a surface treat that can't match the emotional pull of this alternately tragic, alternately triumphant tale of two star-crossed lovers.

Simply one of 20th century cinema's greatest, old-fashioned love stories, full of still impressive effects (pre 3D) and decent, if theatrical acting ...

Titanic evidences the secret of his longtime success, a talent more impressive even than Cameron's technical prowess: his ability to find stories that tap into greater truths and deeper feelings.

Forget women and children, what about truth and realism first?

We know the story ends badly but Cameron still sweeps us up in the romance between Kate Winslet's rebellious posh girl and DiCaprio's steerage kid.

Titanic still works brilliantly; it's a grand-scale studio epic with the heart of a romance and the pulse of an action movie. It's the only American film that rivals Gone With The Wind for both swoonery and production value.

Titanic is a movie that has to be seen on the big screen and will enchant a new generation of fans. A must-see 3D experience.

It has itself become, like the shipwreck, a cultural monument, only accreting value, not losing significance, as time goes by.

Cameron hasn't plugged any of the plot holes and some dialogue is still cheesy but now, just as in 1998, we forgive him a multitude of sins.

Cameron's three-hour disaster epic is a triumph of popular art -- of folk art, really.

"Titanic" still amazes as the kind of massive, build-and-destroy production that few filmmakers have the ambition or budget to make.

[Cameron] stages the sinking with a flawless sense of detail, pacing, import and dread.
