DAMN, I had no idea about him doing this until this morning. Solo voyage to the bottom of the Mariana Trench....seven miles down. Holy shit, James Cameron. Can't wait to see pictures, and hear about more findings in the coming month.

Yeah, it was all over Twitter yesterday. Sub is actually pretty small. I'd still be scared shitless.

He mentioned that once he gets a few more dives completed he's going to start concentrating on Avatar 2/3.

He earned my respect. Makes the two most profitable movies of all-time and then risks his life to go deep sea exploring.

Indeed. Only saw "The Abyss" and "True Lies" once, so I don't remember them very well but I love both Terminators, Aliens, Titanic and Avatar.

Thankfully there are plenty of books to go around, so to each their own.

Will his footage be a theatrical release or part of a cable tv special?

Gotta admit, he might be a noted hard ass, but he backs it up.

This is a joint venture with Cameron and National Geographic so chances are it's going to be a special, but since it was shot in 3D it could probably be a documentary.

If you'd like to read more about just how much of a hardass he is, give THE FUTURIST by Rebecca Keegan a read. I had never devoured a big as quickly as that one.

Also two of the most highly overrated films ever.

Considering how much people have enjoyed bashing Titanic since it came out, "overrated" is the LAST thing that film is.

Alien

It's a decent action film but let's not throw around the word "great" like it has little meaning.

I have to disagree. Alien IMO is an excellent Sci-Fi/Horror movie, and Aliens is an excellent Sci-Fi/Action movie.

Noonan

I agree. It's hard to compare the two even though they're part of the same series. Alien was a horror movie; Aliens was an action flick.

This is a joint venture with Cameron and National Geographic so chances are it's going to be a special, but since it was shot in 3D it could probably be a documentary.
Ghosts of the Abyss, when theatrically released in IMAX 3D and the very few digital 3D theaters at the time, was only 59 minutes. However, the DVD contained an extended 90-minute version of the film.

Same thing with Aliens of the Deep. When theatrically released, it was only 47 minutes. The DVD also included an extended 99-minute version of the film.

I would assume a similar concept would happen here.

I hop it gets an IMAX release , like back in the day when IMAX was only used for documentaries.

True, but Alien is the superior film.

I have stated numerous times that A L I E N is the better of the two. But that is like saying ESB is better than SW. They are both great.

Solid Snake
03-27-12, 09:47 PM
I honestly can't say which is better. They're both sooooooo fucking strong in their genre roots and so different from one another that I can't determine which is better. I'd say they're both equally perfect. They're both game changers.

Bill Paxton.Do you mean him personally or his character?

I think his character adds the right amount of levity. To me he speaks for the audience. Having said that, I always wondered how his character wound up in an elite group for the Corps.

Well they were in some fucked up shit. Everyone kind of lost their shit when the Xenos came up.

Both, really. Something about him just grates on me, even in his really good performances like Frailty and A Simple Plan. He is way too bombastic in Aliens, though...much like the rest of the film. (Yes, I prefer 3, and Resurrection doesn't exist.)

TomOpus

This is EXACTLY how I feel about the first 2 Alien movies. I couldn't say it any better.
