Director James Cameron’s 1997 romantic epic and special-effects marvel makes its Blu-ray debut with a two-and-a-half-hour boatload of bonus features. In addition to the newly freshened-up, hi-definition story of romance, adventure and historically based tragedy (with star-making leading roles played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet), there are deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, pop-cultural parodies of the box-office hit from “Saturday Night Live” and MTV, an in-depth examination of the film by the director, and a documentary with leading experts on the real-life British vessel to discuss the lingering mysteries of how the “unsinkable” ship sank in 1912.
