james cameron slams wonder woman

Friday, August 25th, 2017

in an interview with the guardian magazine, film director james camerson (director of avatar, terminator, and the horrible titanic films) slams the new wonder woman movie. he thinks sarah connor from terminator is a better character. –neglects to mention his tendency to date/have sex with/and/or marry most of the female leads in his films. we like gal gadot (wish i knew how to correctly pronounce her name). she was great in the fast and the furious films –despite not having been given much to do. and minus the large setpiece action sequence at the end, wonder woman is actually a really good film. we say hats off to director patty jenkins for getting signed to the sequel. and for going online to defend her film. looks like james cameron might be ripe for a boycott whenever he finishes his smurf movies.

we think this is a good idea especially if more scenes are added. all the fanboys will flip.

is this not the most awesome photo ever?

kathryn bigelow, who was savvy enough to stipulate that james cameron produce 3 of her films as part of their divorce settlement won an oscar for best director and best film on sunday. she’s the first woman to take the director’s award and the first woman to do a hat trick.

it’s a shame that the film is not as good as avatar, which should’ve at least won best picture. we’re so tired of iraq war movies. but we love kathryn.

the end of the metrosexual

james cameron is all about setting the tone for hollywood. after the success of titanic, everyone scrambled looking for the next leonardo dicaprio. for 12 years while james cameron was away filming underwater documentaries movie-viewing audiences were mercilessly visually assualted by guys who looked like prepubscent boys (tobey maguire anyone?) and not like men. girlie men who looked like they got their chests waxed daily and visited the facilist once-a-week.

is it any wonder than cameron declined to put the likes of jake gyllenhaal and matt damon in avatar? but it’s kinda sad that he had to venture beyond north america and europe to the otherside of the planet (you know the place that’s summer in winter) to find a man like sam worhtington –you know, a guy who looks like a man and not like david beckham.

here’s the long version. below is a snippet.

the end of girlie men

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

here’s the thing. james cameron creates trends. like his using arnold schwarzennegger in the terminator in the early 80s ushered in the whole he-man action hero thing. and then his using leonardo dicaprio in titanic ushered in the era of the girlie men.

because filmmakers (most) are unoriginal in their thinking (jason reitman), are not visionaries (tarantino) and are just followers (happy to have a job). and so he’s the only one really whose got the power to decide, i don’t want any stars in my film, i want to create one. and then everyone else follows with similar looking guys. or the same guy.

and avatar killed spiderman. no matter what anyone thinks. which is why it will be a teen movie. because after such a visually perfect effects laden film, spiderman and those type of films look like g.i. joes playing with barbie in a playhouse. teenage girls are less demanding (see twilight).
