Films Of James Cameron

Avatar (2009): Broke Titanic's all time box office record, brought 3D movies back into vogue and introduced us to funny looking blue humanoids from the planet Pandora. Hopefully it won't take Cameron another twelve years to make a film.

Titanic (1997): The most successful film ever when it was released and made superstars out of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Swept the Oscars including Best Picture in 1998.

True Lies (1994): Another team up with Arnold Schwarzenegger. This one's an action comedy with spies, terrorists and a sexy striptease by Jamie Lee Curtis.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991): Cameron re-teams with Schwarzenegger for this blockbuster sequel. This time Arnold's Terminator is a good guy, programmed to protect Sarah Conner and her son. After The Abyss, this movie was a milestone for CGI visual effects.

The Abyss (1989): All the intensity of Aliens but underwater. This film was a giant  breakthrough in the use of CGI. This technology would be later used in Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park and every movie since.

Aliens (1986): Sequel to the movie Alien (1979). The first one is a suspense / horror film, Cameron's follow up is an all out war film.

The Terminator (1984): Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg hit man from the future and uttering the famous catch phrase "I'll be back", nobody saw that coming. This film also features other Cameron alumni like Linda Hamilton, Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen.

Piranha II: The Spawning (1981): Everybody's got to start somewhere and for James Cameron it was this film.
