It was about time for James Cameron to do something that makes me want to frequent a struggling art house cinema. There’s a reason Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made a hilarious joke about him at the Golden Globes that gave even his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow the giggles. He thinks a lot of himself, and he’s not afraid to show it. More
Topic: James Cameron
God bless Mythbusters hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, and their MacGyver burst of logic that allowed them to envision a Titanic where Jack lives! (Spoiler: James Cameron is not happy.) More
Good for James Cameron for having a sense of humor about Titanic‘s most-argued point. More
After a Redditor posted an illustrated guide to how Jack and Rose could have easily shared the plank in Titanic, another Redditor invoked the laws of physics to prove that Rose was maybe a little less selfish than we thought. Maybe. More
Should you go see Titanic 3D in theaters? Hell yes. Better yet, do IMAX so you can experience the thrilling dive to the real shipwreck, the opulence of the fake ship, Rose’s selfishness, and the sinking with new eyes. I don’t always agree with James Cameron, but he was completely right in re-releasing this classic movie in 3D. More
With the re-release of James Cameron‘s Titanic, 15 years after its original release date and rendered in 3-D, we have the rare opportunity of seeing how a studio reevaluates its marketing strategy for a beloved film. For what it’s worth, the 3-D doesn’t really translate in the new trailer. Obviously it’ll show up on the IMAX screen in 2012, but for now it seemed as if this were just the original trailer, but sharper.
How wrong I was. More
You’ve done it again, Reddit! The forum has been our way of finding out movie secrets from other eagle-eyed viewers, and for the most part, it’s a fun discovery. After all, we weren’t too broken up to discover that Michael Bay reused the same footage from Pearl Harbor for Transformers. But this… this is just cruel. More
So, Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You thought you were the coolest movie-specific theme park around? Well, think again, because James Cameron is coming, and he’s going to squash you like a tiny, magical bug. More
First it was a handful of computer animated films. Then it was most computer animated films. Then it was a handful of live action films. Then Avatar happened, and ever since then, nearly every single big-budget action-y movie that has been released has been in 3D.
What the hell’s up with that?
Let me get the record straight: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with 3D movies– as long as the 3D bit is essential to the story being told. The big problem I’ve been having lately is that more and more, the use of 3D technology in filmmaking is becoming a gimmick or a trend, rather than an actual technique. The question I keep asking is whether or not the 3D element is actually doing anything to enhance the films it’s being applied to– and mostly, I don’t think it is. More
Record-breaking romance Titanic launched the careers of its stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, and gave director James Cameron the means to begin work on what would become the even more record-breaking Avatar. And what was it that made Winslet and DiCaprio stars? It could’ve been “I’m king of the world!” or “I’m flying, Jack.” It could’ve been the incredible special effects that went into the sinking of the Titanic. But it was probably Winslet’s nude scene.

James Cameron will make Avatar 2 & 3 next – The director has finally agreed to take on the sequels to his blue-bodied blockbuster. He plans to begin working on the scripts early next year. Maybe he’ll have invented 4D technology by then? (OMG)
A Typepad blogger named Ray Knowles just got his seventh Neytiri from Avatar tattoo — but unfortunately none of them are in 3D. Just to be on the safe side, we’ve decided to request a restraining order on Zoe Saldana‘s behalf. (Although somehow there’s a wedding ring on this guy’s finger, so maybe he’s just really into Na’vi blue?)
Hey, we bet we can guess what Ray’s favorite movie is! (Last Tango In Paris.)
“Okay,” James Cameron said, clapping his hands together. “What do you guys got for me?” James Cameron was talking ideas, big ideas, about how to clean up the BP oil spill mess on the Gulf of Mexico. The government had … More
“No totally dude, just create a hydrogen bomb and send the oil careening back in time and parallel universes and stuff.” Sorry, Damon Lindelof, creator of Lost, we already have enough famous people dealing with the BP oil spill as … More
