Interference Random Movie Talk III

The one is on the second page, and was close enough to the end of its beautiful if short lifetime, so I might as well start the third iteration now with a nice little Avatar tidbit I found.

This is supposed to be a scan of some official promotional art leaked from the "Fox 2009 line-up" or something like that. Whatever, it looks nice.

Damn right.

It's been pretty much my entire lifetime since a truly great James Cameron flick, T2. True Lies is fun and Titanic is overrated.

Yes it better be, or my foot will be so far in my mouth that I'll be shitting toenails for a week.

I wouldn't call Titanic overrated. It's almost universally hated by cinephiles these days, which I feel is completely unfair. It falls a bit into the trap of sappy manipulative tragic romance, but in most respects it's still a pretty remarkable movie. I haven't seen in a long time though. I'm due for a rewatch.

I don't do overly sappy too well, especially when there's good enough material in the script to not have to resort to that. My lady friend and I were discussing this the other day - lose the old lady scenes, and it's a better movie... even if you risk losing the Paxton.

Cameron is all about the deep sea exploration though. If he cut anything it would be the entire main body of the film, and we'd just have a fictionalized Titanic documentary. Even though he did sort of go that route with his next two films. Which I enjoyed quite thoroughly as well.

Okay, I can understand that and agree, but still ditch Old Rose... or at least handle her character with less OTT cheese.

I'm really interesting in seeing his two sea films, weren't they originally in IMAX?

The rate at which we plow through these threads is certainly impressive.


(Insert Lance's Mom and the verb plow joke here.)

I do believe both his documentaries were filmed in IMAX. And I think Aliens of the Deep was retro-produced (a real word? It is now.) for IMAX 3-D at some point.

Nice.

Fuck, I wish he could've done Spider-Man. Not that I don't love Raimi's interpretations, but it's fucking James Cameron, man. Then again, it could've been as weird as Tim Burton doing Superman with Nicolas Cage.

His Spiderman script was kind of wanky actually. Now sure it would have been so great. I enjoyed reading it quite a bit, but maybe it's just because I'm already so used to Raimi's films. It certainly would have been better than Spiderman 1 at least though.
