THERE IS NO BATHROOM!

WHO IS YO' DADDY, AND WHAT DOES HE DO?!

IT'S NOT A TUMOR!

Any movie with Arnold screaming at 5-year-olds and owning a pet ferret is worth seeing at least once or a dozen times.

I was just reading a discussion on IMDB under the Abyss forums, where people were debating the level of realism regarding the science of water pressure portrayed in the film.

It was one of the nerdiest/most enthralling/scariest things I've ever read on there. There were a handful of really intelligent people who came together, worked out their differences, and nailed down a solid conclusion. Then one retard comes in, says "You guyz are dumb, so is the movie, if you go that deep u r crushed", and the retards start arguing all over again, despite it being perfectly explained just ONE post earlier.

God damn, I love IMDB sometimes.

I still think The Abyss is Cameron's best film by far. Too bad the characters in Titanic weren't written as well as they were in that; it may have been an actual great film.

And I think T2 is one of the most overrated films ever, and isn't even close to the original. Making Arnie the hero and adding a kid? A choice on par with Shortround or the Ewoks.

Discuss.

I'd rather not. T2 is possibly my favorite filim of all time, and I'm far too tired to get into a debate about it right now.

I do think The Abyss is the "quintessential" Cameron film though, since it's the one work he's done to date that best showcases all his talents and passions in one film.

And I totally agree with you about Titanic.

I haven't seen Good Luck Chuck, but I am offended by it merely on the premise that Jessica Alba would ever have a hard time getting a boyfriend. Prime example of a miscast that totally destroys any chance a film had of being decent.

Meh.

Definitely.

T2 has some of the best action set pieces I have seen in any movie, including my favorite post-Bullitt car chase.

Agreed.

I'm not a T2 fan at all, cannot for the life of me understand its appeal.

I enjoyed the Abyss, however.

I agree with all of this, I would also like to know what a complete ass-clown like Dane Cook did in a previous life to get all these roles in movies with hot chicks...

I'm thinking some sort of pact with the devil possibly?

Dane fucking Cook.

Now he's appearing in MLB's post-season ads. Almost makes me want to skip the playoffs.

Dane Cook is annoying and painfully unfunny. His fifteen minutes can be up any time now. Really. PLEASE.

Is the extended cut of The Abyss better than the theatrical a la the Aliens Special Edition?

The extended cut of The Abyss is in fact better than the Theatrical cut.

However, I do believe it's the only Cameron "special edition" that's better than the theatrical versions.

I really love the Aliens extended cut, mainly for the little bits added in the Ripley/Newt relationship and the Hadley's Hope footage... but I can see why people wouldn't like it that much.

Aliens is still my favorite Cameron flick. True Lies is enjoyable, too, it warrants some mention.

Just watched Aliens again the other night. Never loses its edge. I think the majority of the added scenes really bog down the film in needless exposition. The scene about Ripley's daughter makes sense, but I like it better how in the theaterical version, Cameron leaves that exposition up to be inferred from the first conversation Ripley has with Burke.

True Lies is campy deliciousness that I haven't seen in a long time. It's time again.

And the T-1000 is going to murder all you T2-haters, take on your appearance, and then procede to brutally kill you familes. That is all.

You gotta admit the sentry guns are badass though. It adds another layer of believability to them surviving that long with that many aliens in the compound.

Other than the Ripley/Newt story, the way Bishop is handled is perfect.
