James Cameron did Aliens and Terminator 2: judgement Day. The man's an expert at sci-fi action sequels.
James Cameron did Titanic and Avatar. The man knows how to take a simple story and execute it with a certain flair that makes it appealing to all audiences.
James Cameron did The Abyss and titanic. the man knows his water.
The first movie is still gorgeous to look at, and special effects have only gotten better since then.
Avatar is a hill I'm willing to die on (I think that the derivative story doesn't detract from the message it was conveying or the experience the movie gave audiences), and now that it's a sequel and doesn't need to be a derivative story, I've got nothing but excitement for this. I just hope we don't get the same old nonsense 'Avatar has no cultural impact' hot takes anymore. movie's still the highest grossing film of all time (with a re-release), and I see at least a billion and a half in this film's future. I'd almost go out on a limb and say 2 billion worldwide. I think this will be the Spider-Man No Way Home of 2022. My body is ready.
