Anybody watching any Titanic movies tonight or tomorrow (Me!)? What's everyone doing to commemorate the 107th anniversary?

I am watching Ghosts of the Abyss, and I watched several documentaries this weekend so far. I will probably watch the movie tomorrow if I don't get to it tonight. And the most exciting thing is that Dr. Robert Ballard will be in my area Tuesday and I cannot wait to meet him!! He will be presenting, "Finding the Titanic and Other Tales of the Sea" at the University of Mississippi.

I watched a couple of docu's last night...both were pretty good. I had no complaints with them. I've been to the Vegas exhibit twice when it was at the Rio before they moved it to the Luxor. You should like it. Let us know. I thought it was really good.

Welcome to ET. That should be an interesting presentation to go to. Hope you get to meet him.

Oddly enough I ended up watching for the first time that 1982 documentary "TItanic: A Question of Murder" on the anniversary.

The content on the Welin company and the anonymous letter about ship's lifeboats sent to "John Bull" magazine was interesting.

One major flaw in the documentary though is that although the lack of lifeboats is their main "point of attack" - they don't go into whether they'd have the time and the manpower to load and launch over thirty or forty lifeboats in the time available which they most probably would not.

It was interesting to hear the nephew of Thomas Andrew's speak and wonder if his sort of half Ulster/half English accent would have been how Andrews spoke.

At the end of his life, Frank Prentice still keenly felt the loss of his pal Cyril Ricks, Prentice's voice audibly breaks and he takes deep breathes as he describes what happened to Ricks. Very sad.

I thought the seance thing they had set up with the three ladies who had survived was a bit insensitive. Eva Hart certainly did not look too impressed !

Loved it! I was in "Geek Heaven!" The experience was worthy of a post all its own...Hey, there's an idea :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm in Vegas all the time as I live an hour away. Been awhile since I've went. Maybe its time to go again. Is the big piece still there?
Yep! And it was spectacular! And looking at those rivets really, pardon the pun, drove home the fact that Titanic was essentially "built-by-hand." And to be there on the anniversary of the sinking made it extra special! Even the calendar matched! (Titanic sank on a Monday; this year's anniversary fell on a Monday as well.)

Nice. I wondering because when they first started those exhibits they were rotating artifacts around the different exhibitions.

I played the Titanic Voyage RPG browser based game that I play every year and managed to survive on the skin of my teeth. For rhe first year ever the Carpathia continued on to New York instead of the game aimply ending on April 15th. Shortly after this I watched Honor and Glory's 107 livestream of their real time simulation.
