Maybe its because this supposedly unsinkable ship became just that: sinkable. The reported want of White Star Line managing director J. Bruce Ismay (Jonathan Hyde) to have Titanic to make the news in…"Titanic Is An Epic Achievement In Filmmaking Over 25 Years Later"
Titanic: 25 Years Later with James Cameron rehashes much of what is featured in Titanic: 20 Years Later but with one new addition. If it seems like I’m rehashing much of my review of the 2017 special, you’re not mistaken. This new special sacrifices the discussion with descendants of survivors and victims to focus on whether Jack could have survived on the door with Rose. It’s for this reason that my review grade is a…"Titanic: 25 Years Later with James Cameron"

Rather than launch a new Disneynature film, Disney+ turns to James Cameron and National Geographic for Secrets of the Whales. It was only a matter of time before Disney, through its National Geographic unit, released a documentary on whales. The thing is–there is so much content here that it’s not limited to a single film. Instead, the newest Earth Day feature is a documentary series. The four episodes run close to 50 minutes in length,…"Secrets of the Whales: The Newest Earth Day Series"

Director James Cameron made the news for some disparaging comments about Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins ripped him in response and rightfully so. Cameron told The Guardian‘s Hadley Freeman: “All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided.

I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards.…"Patty Jenkins rips James Cameron over Wonder Woman comments"
