 I do try my best :)

Btw everybody, Amazon got a sale going on DVD/Blu where if you buy the movie you get a $10 promo code for Fandago so you can buy a ticket for Battleship, Snow White or Bourne Legacy.  Not a big selection of DVD/Blu's but I did get Children of Men on Blu for $8.  Anyways, if you were interested in seeing any of those flicks, might be worth to checkout.

Tevii:  agree with your post 100%, including Aliens being my all-time fav!!

Darthofthedead:  I'm glad you got a laugh, but I wasn't joking, the man is a genius.  He's been involved in so many things outside of film that it would be impossible to list it all here, but the short of it is that he's behind some of the greatest advancements in film.  He practically invented CGI integration with live film and his former company Digital Domain (which he sold to Michael Bay)  Was and still is the leader in CGI.  He also had a huge part in developing the most current types of 3D camera's so that they could film in 3D rather than post-convert.  Add that to the records he recently broke for deep-sea diving and ALL his efforts to advance the entertainment industry and you'd be hard pressed to name someone who's smarter and more accomplished.

 If he's such a genius, why is Peter Jackson the first to film in 48 frames per second instead of 24?

 Good.

 For me, Avatar was Dances With Wolves in Outerspace. While it was visually stunning, the whole 'corporations are soulless bad guys out to kill all that is natural and good' thing was done so one-sided that it actually hurt what he was trying to say. If we at least were given a taste of the folks back on Earth suffering because they needed something from this planet, then at least you have a more beleivable 'Spiritual Natives vs The Ends Justifies The Means.' That would have really challenged people to choose sides and been way more provocative. At least to my little brain.

That said, Avatar is an event, not a movie. I'm sure what Cameron has decided is that he wants this to be his Star Wars, his Lord Of The Rings, his ultimate and lasting legacy as a filmmaker that will live on in books, tv, lunchboxes, themeparks, whatever. He KNOWS this is his shot at immortality.

 Wiseguy:  It has already been recorded that he will be exploring new planets.   The next one is a water planet.  Hopefully, we will get some new actors.

Ironmaniac- We've all heard that exact same tired old argument on here 5765 times on here just fyi. That is sooo 2011....

S.Caveman-You're really gonna base someone's genius on that argument? Btw, people are saying the 48 frames per second thing is not the greatest idea cuz it looks TOO clear, making everything look like a set, and it loses the mythical qualities to the cinematography.

Cameron with all hype aside is already in the record books and his name will live on.  Not only because of his 2 behemoths Avatar and Titanic, but his small but impressive library of films, his record dive in the Mariana Trench, his multiple trips to the bottom of the sea his innovation.

The guys is more than just a film maker, his an engineer, inventor, creator, writer just to name a few things

The Most Interesting Man in the World is fascinated by James Cameron, while drinking DosEquis he watches Cameron's films, when in doubt he calls Cameron for advice
 

Oh and that 48fps Cameron was leading the charge with that too btw. PJ's film just happens to be in production first. Cameron will probably opt for 60fps which some think is actually more natural

A Cameron fan saying the 48 frames per second makes something look too clear?  Hey Pot, this is Kettle, have you met?
