Watched this with my girlfriend, both of us fans of the original. I was highly impressed with how well this worked. Without reading back through the comments, I recall someone pointing out that by focusing the story on Jack (and by proximity on Rose as well), this actually becomes much more of a romantic drama than before. Rather then making a movie for dudes, it has become a much tighter romance, with a more sane running time. I enjoyed it greatly (and I never thought I would watch Titanic again, due to the indulgently long running time).
