Film director James Cameron says his offer to help BP figure out how to fix their monstrous oil spill was rebuffed. His name showed up in the news this week in relation to the crisis, and the news was met with mixed reviews.
That means some people said, “Right on, that dude knows how to run things!” They have in mind Cameron’s films, including Titanic and Avatar, both of which are more undertakings than they mere movies.
I went in and pitched it to the studio as Romeo and Juliet on a ship: “It’s going to be this epic romance, passionate film.” Secretly what I wanted to do was I wanted to dive to the real wreck of Titanic, and that’s why I made the movie. James Cameron tells the TED Conference about his fascination with diving and how it’s affected his career.
In every James Cameron movie Michael appears in, his character is bitten on the hand by another character. From Wikipedia’s entry on actor Michael Biehn.

Paul Hehn reviews the new James Cameron film Avatar:It’s Ferngully meets Pocahontas, story-wise.

James Cameron just got re-elected.
Great stuff! See more Avatar images>>
