Top Commentary: James Cameron

Opinions were all over the board on James Cameron. I think it's just hard to judge a director's current relevancy after such a long vacation. (Remember how the absence of Tarantino between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill brought up uncertainty?)
According to the poll on

12% think anytime he makes a movie there's a good chance it'll be a masterpiece.
16% think he is usually Great and certainly one of our Best Directors.
20% think he's solid, but only sometimes Great.
12% fear after his long absence, he won't be as good as he used to be.
24% think he is Good, but don't think he'll ever be Great.
16% don't see anything special about his directing.

Cameron is one of those rare creatures that is not only an ace storyteller but also a technical genius, working with his team to craft what he needs to tell those stories. This alone makes him the single best director working in blow s**t up, popcorn munching, butts in seats blockbusters

I like his films from the first Terminator to Titanic. Sure, Titanic had its cheesy moments but he had a lot of balls to make a film of that grand scale.
