lol this stupid Yahoo article talking about James Cameron being spread too thin on the Avatar universe, by writing three screenplays for the sequels and directing.
Tough? The original script for Avatar could be written by a 4th grader. He could knock back 3 scripts in a few weeks.
Cameron is an egomaniac. His failed marriages and personality on set have proven how insufferable he is.
Aliens truly a terrible film. Eye-rolling. Cringed the whole way through.
Titanic had just the right balance, and the film I thought was brilliantly storyboarded, it just had a natural arc to it.
As much as I deride Avatar, and as much as I chuckle at my signature, I still found much pleasure in the film. It is overly smooth yes, but credit to Cameron for transporting me to Pandora. Even on Blu-Ray.
I don't know how Cameron dodged the uncanny valley when it came to the alien love affair, it worked.
He has a designer's eye for sure, just doesn't have the writing chops to match. Presentation wise I can't think of anyone better, especially on such a huge budget. Avatar could have been so overwrought, but it wasn't. I don't think Cameron has the competency to do so, but we are left thankfully with some restraint that doesn't become pretentious.
