When I saw Avatar in IMAX 3D, I left there completely amazed... however since then when it shows up on TV ... although I have tried I can't sit through it again without being bored... really comes down to the fact that the 3D was fantastic and the story was average.... anyway I will see any sequels when they come out to see what other technological advance Cameron can come up with....

Harry at aicn e-mailed Cameron himself as to wether or not Battle Angel was done and should we give up on it, this is Cameron's quote according to aicn

"No.  I still love that project.   But Battle Angel is not going to happen for a few years."

So there is hope, like I said earlier I'm still expecting BA around the end of the decade. Cameron is just too much of a perfectionist to churn movies out and get to it any faster

I'm disappointed to learn that James Cameron will just focus primarily on his Avatar movie series (aside from Battle Angel as we've just been told by Wise) because while I respect his right to do what he pleases, I think there are so many other stories that he could explore.  Mind you, despite it's flaws I still certainly enjoyed Avatar, just not as much as many others have, but I'm certain open to seeing any sequels Cameron has in development.

As far as Cameron as screenwriter, well IMO, I think it's fair to say that he's no sh$tty writer given he wrote Aliens, The Abyss, and True Lies and co-wrote Terminator and T2.  Even though I think his first strength is directing, he still clearly has a talent for writing, unless one of the greatest sci-fi movies that will ever be made, Aliens, was written by someone else or perhaps wasn't that good in hindsight!

In my view, the most disappointing aspect of Cameron's career has been what I would deem "missed opportunity."  Even though I liked T3, I suspect it would've been better if he were at the helm.  Another is Spiderman because for a while (before Raimi's version came out) he was rumored to be behind it until the slew of stupid lawsuits came out and slowed the whole development down.  While i very much enjoyed what Raimi gave us, I'm curious what Cameron would've done with that.  Last but not least is The Planet of the Apes movie that he and Arnold were supposed to be attached to in the mid-90's.  Man, that last franchise in particular could've been something great if they had stuck to it and makes me wince when I think about that lost opportunity when they could've rebooted that back then instead of the major disappointment that was Tim Burton's version from 2001 (although I liked how it started out and the Ape makeup). 

BTW, Cameron and I have a couple things in common.  We're both Canadian and we share the same birthday, August 16th!

I'm just shocked at all the people who still think this man's farts smell good.  What a pretentious piece of crap.  Jim, thanks for Terminator and Aliens.  I will always cherish them, and know that I got all from you I ever needed and can now ignore you.

Yeah KD Leos rule baby

dnbritt sir you must have never smelled his farts they are delicious and good for you too, full of antioxidants.

fellow Leo here, and a fellow Canadian too!

Yeah Keith, Cameron's Spiderman woulda been pretty cool I think.  I have a keychain I got from a  comic store that was promotional for that film, it was a little metal spidey in sling-mode with 1995 on it, that was the year it was supposed to come out!  He was going to cast Michael Biehn as an older Peter Parker and base it a few years in the future.  It really went a long way until the legal battles killed it.  I even remember reading about it in Cinescape magazine in that very same comic store.

wish- Was it the Alex Ross design?

BunyonSnip:  I'd like to think so but I can't say for sure, but I love the Alex Ross design so it's kinda sad to think we might never get that on film......but.......never say never right?  Before Tim Burton we never had a Batman in anything but blue and grey cloth!

DarthoftheDead 5/10/2012 7:45:26 AM

@keithdaniels - Holy spit! I never heard that J.C. was supposed to do a Planet of the Ape's movie with Arnold!

That's what I'm talking about, folk's! (Sorry, wiseguy) That's what Avatar should've been!

Just imagine, dang!
