I do have a feeling that the lack of information is because National Geographics doing some sort of TV thingy about this and James is obviously doing his own documentary.

Guess we wont see anything until National airs it on TV.

It's been a while since I watched T1, going to do a re-watch of both movies this week. Don't know if I should get T3 too.

It was insanely popular, and won lots of awards. Of course it is hated online.

I say T1 is his best.

True Lies is second.

The Abyss Director's Cut 3rd

T2 Theatrical cut 4th

Aliens Theatrical cut.

Nothing else is worth mentioning, imo.

I just know that T1 is at the top with T2 and Aliens fighting for second place. It's hard when all you do is make amazing movies.

I call them like I see them.

I've never really liked Aliens and I can't stand t2 after watching the directors cut. It was so bad even my opinion of the theatrical cut suffered. (really, I want a cut with the extra Asylum stuff and... nothing else. Fuck that whole movie should have just been her dealing with her insanity in the Asylum. Everything else rubbed me the wrong way). I guess to be a bit more blunt, I just don't really care for Cameron's style. But I feel like what he does works best in the top three of my list.

I'm not trying to start a fight. I just have a dissenting opinion... I guess I could have phrased my T2 criticisms a little more friendly though...

Your opinion on Cameron is invalid for the sole reason that you failed to grasp the reference you just quoted.

I assume they're releasing very little info about the project along the way to the press, beyond scheduled interviews, as they want to retain the value of whatever they're filming along the way.

Do you prefer T2 Theactrical or DC? I need a opinion from a fan like you so I can decide the right one to watch.

Even as a non-fan of the movie, I think it is best to watch the Theatrical and then DC and decide for yourself. A lot of people like both for different reasons.

I think theatrical if you're watching it standalone for the first time, but definitely the special edition if you're coming off T1.

I feel like the theatrical is the best first viewing either way. The director's cut has some really great extra scenes and some... not so much. Pretty much everything in the asylum should have stayed in the original cut.

Not for the first time, I probably already watched it about 5 times, they were all on TV though, don't think it was the DC.

Then you may as well tryout the DC. Some of the additions are absolutely worth it. Just be aware that a lot of the other additions, while often interesting, add some pacing issues to the movie.

To be fair, The Situation hit rock bottom while taping Jersey Shore, as you can see on TMZ.com. Bad timing for James.

If I remember right DC of T2 had this scene where he tries to smile. I think Arnold did this scene very, very well. I saw it a long time ago so my opinion may change.

History Channel's How the Earth was Made had an episode dedicated to the Marianna Trench. Good stuff.

Those things that are dwelling down at the bottom are gonna be in for a hell of a shock when they see light for the first time ever. Would you need eyes if your world doesn't have light? I mean vision?

Were i Cameron i'd made that ship for two.
