James Cameron: Again with the Titanic?

12.07.2011

Oh boy, here he goes again.

James Cameron is once again returning to the world of TITANIC for the upcoming National Geographic documentary "Titanic: Final Word with James Cameron," which I have a feeling will NOT be James Cameron's final word on the Titanic.

Says Michael Cascio, VP of programming at NatGeo, "He is a freak about the Titanic." Oh, you don't say? Hadn't noticed.

So what's this latest Titanic documentary about? Cameron apparently built a 40-foot scale model of the Titanic where he and his "group of experts" convened for two days trying to figure out how the Titanic sank. (I picture it going something like this. "It's like you're unraveling a giant cable-knit sweater that someone keeps knitting and knitting and knitting!...")

Also, aren't we all kinda clear on how the Titanic sank? I mean, Cameron himself directed a movie in which the ship crashed into an iceberg. No wait, there was a second iceberg located behind the grassy knoll!

The most important part of this news is buried at the very end of the press release. "The NatGeo initiative also will coincide with 3D re-release of Cameron’s TITANIC..." Ahh yes, the well-timed publicity grab.

Extra Tidbit: One of my favorite parts of this news is the word that Cameron is a "National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence."

I'm interested...
But, reading most of your posts, I guess every Historical Events that we know how happened, don't need to be studied any more, right... Well, that will make History class quite shorter, now won't it ?!
Yes, Cameron is a Titanophile and he can afford to live his passion... SO SUE HIM!

Wow, Mike.

I haven't visited this website in some time, and now I remember why. What a load of snarky bullshit this whole article was. Does anyone in this place actually have fun discussions about films anymore? WTF happened to this place? Are you gonna start making fun of Lindsay Lohan's teeth next?

Good riddance.

HE NEVER HELPED THE LAST SURVIVER

THE SADNESS STORY OF THEM ALL IS WHEN TITANIC LAST SURVIVAL WHICH PASSED AWAY A FEW YEARS BACK, WAS VERY SICK AND HAD NO MONEY FOR HER MEDICAL TREATMENTS -- CAMERON MADE TENS OF MILLIONS DUE TO THAT TRAGIC STORY -- HE COULD AT LEAST PAY FOR THE BILLS WHICH WAS A FEW THOUSANDS DOLLARS, PEANUTS FOR JAMES CAMERON!!

The real reason the Titanic sank was because Skynet sent a Terminator to 1912 to terminate the great-great grandmother of John Conner.

"there was a second iceberg located behind the grassy knoll" probably the best thing I've read on the internet all year.

Oh James, you so silly.
Why don't you build an exact replica of the Titanic, sail it straight into an iceberg and THEN see how it sank. I mean, why not?
You could also have some crews filming the whole thing with 3D cameras for an eventual theatrical release of that!

Does it really matter how the Titanic sunk?

Maybe instead of HOW it sunk this will focus on WHO was exactly responsible:
I say the captain was drunk and got into a heated argument with his younger junior officer with whom he had developed an unintentional man-crush, who then decided to take over and what followed next was a brutal fist-FIGHT (Bourne identity style)!
With everyone trying to break them apart it left no-one steering the boat. The only one on standby who could have saved the day was getting a blow-job below the bridge

By this time it was too late for him to change into his Batman costume which mysteriously "disappeared".
So the question is, who was this girl? (cue: tense orchestra music and a slow-mo close-up of JC's face doing an over-dramatic 'thousand yard' stare)

Nice Jim

Of course he's a "Titanic freak". There are so few real-life events that match the absurdity of his films.

Cool. I'm actually excited to see what new science if any was used. Titanic seems like a good template to utilize.
