Review: Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D
3D movies are a bit like the T-1000: you can knock them down, but they will keep getting back up. Killing time until the Avatar sequels come out, James Cameron spent six months post-converting his 1991 classic to 3D, at the precise moment that major TV manufacturers announced they’re not going to make any more 3D TVs. You don’t need me to tell you that Terminator 2: Judgment Day is as close to perfect an action movie can get, so the question is: why bother with a rerelease? Fortunately the answer is simple: because it looks fricking awesome.

Dear James Cameron, please stop encouraging Terminator sequels, ta

This is not a hit-piece on James Cameron. I love James Cameron. I think Terminator 2 is one of the best films of all time. I held the first screening of True Lies in London for 20 years. I cried at Titanic. I will vigorously defend the concept of the Avatar sequels to the hilt. But this is not a love letter to James Cameron either. This is a sternly worded warning to James Cameron that politely requests he stops encouraging, endorsing and/or making Terminator movies. I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed.

You made Avatar a success, now quit complaining about the sequels

Is there a word used on social media and comment threads more cringeworthy than "Avatards"? Not only is it not remotely funny, it's usually accompanied by a lazy, sneering dismissal of James Cameron's Avatar sequels, or more specifically, the rapidly increasing volume of them. I admit, I am fascinated by the highs and lows of the Avatar franchise, the record-breaking box office haul and the subsequent disappearing act from the nation's consciousness (this article from Forbes, on Avatar's lack of "pop-culture footprint", is sadly accurate). But have we really become so jaded and so short-sighted that we're dismissing out of hand sequels to the most popular movie of all time; a movie that, just seven years ago, we ALL paid money hand over fist to go and see? You and I are both complicit: we all were Avatards and we will be again (and again, and again, and finally once more in 2023).

James Cameron's 3D re-realisation of the infamous ill-fated maiden voyage sets sail with a new poster and trailer. We up periscope to take a look. Something something poop deck.

Review: Sanctum 3D

Sanctum 3D
That James Cameron fella likes his underwater exploration, doesn't he? I'd be willing to bet bath time with JC would be an intrepid adventure to find the soap (rated 12A). First came The Abyss, then Titanic, then 3D Titanic doc Ghosts Of The Abyss and now Sanctum 3D, Cameron's exec-produced new waterbaby about a cave-diving expedition gone awry. Something tells me Avatar 2 might be a little bit soggy.
