Sheet-y Saturday.

Where we take a look at posters for upcoming features.

I am the first to criticize Hollywood's laziness in re-releasing their classics in 3D but I'm also the first to jump overboard just to show how much they love Titanic. This is the movie that made me fall in love with the idea of movies as things that transcend time and space. My tastes may have become more sophisticated since, give me a break I was 11, but I still defend this movie's corniness whenever people attack it.
See this poster for example, the ridiculous pink skies and the ship in movement, suggest something straight out of a bad Asian hologram postcard or a cheesy karaoke video, but there is something about the tacky embossed logo, or the doe-eyed looks in Leo and Kate's faces that just goes "click". It's sigh inducing and nostalgic all at once.

How do you feel about this re-release?

A bunch of my friends and I are already lining up for opening day. BRING IT.

I want to avoid it, I want to be able to say no, but already I can feel my resolve slipping. I expect I'll be sniffling in the aisles with the best of them.

Titanic for ever and ever. It's not even a question.

I'm so torn. I don't want to encourage this money-grubbiness for the sake of avoiding creating anything truly new, but this is damn tempting. I have virtually the same attachment to Titanic you do, and I'm loving the embracing of the full-on '90s romance tropes - the over-the-top color choices and the youthful DiCap and Winslet. You can probably count me in as well. Too tempting to avoid.
