... was ever a director more up his own ****
I completely agree - the bulk of his films are overblown sanctimonious morality tales with a dire reliance on CGI instead of plotlines.
The celluloid master of proctoheliosis
Aliens was pretty good, as was Terminators 1 and 2.
Was amusing to see his ex-wife pip him to the oscar for best film last year....
My thread was begun because of his comments before Aliens (as seen on TV last night)
No doubt a good film but his whole "look at me ... I am sooooooo great" attitude annoyed me
But isn't the whole acting profession this way? Just think of the Oscars - these people hold a show to glorify themselves and give awards to each other, as if the whole concept of movie making and acting is the highest of all virtues and skills.We may laugh, but so many of them seem to believe it. Well, until they realise they are no longer needed due to fashion changes or younger models replacing them.
Avoid the extras in the Alien box set - Cameron, well, let's just say he's a complete pranny
Not all films have to be deep and meaningful, and some directors will inevitably be seduced by the Dark Side of CGI (George Lucas springs readily to mind here). Cameron's good at what he does - what he thinks and says about it is irrelevant to me.
If your preference is for more minimalist movies with powerful storylines, try 'Cube' and/or 'Exam'.
I love the Alien series, best movies made in my view
Me too, with the exception of the Winona Ryder one.
Avatar though ... blah.
i was not disagreeing. Titanic was implausible ****, and I have no interest in Avatar whatsoever. Its just CGI gone mad. "Oh, Jack. Draw me like one of your French girls" Yer ****.
I lost the will to live watching Avatar
