James Cameron movies: All 8 films ranked worst to best include ‘Titanic,’ ‘Terminator 2,’ ‘Avatar’
James Cameron celebrates his 65th birthday on August 16, 2019. With three Academy Awards and some of the biggest box office champs of all time under his belt, the director has certainly found a way to blend art and commerce to great effect. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all eight of his films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1954 in Ontario, Canada, Cameron cut his teeth with a variety of on-set jobs, most notably as a special effects artist. Although he technically made his directorial debut with the creature feature “Piranha II: The Spawning” (1982), he truly burst onto the scene with the sci-fi hit “The Terminator” (1982), which cast Arnold Schwarzenegger as a futuristic cyborg sent on a mission to kill a young woman (Linda Hamilton) before she can give birth to the messiah.

Arnold Schwarzenegger movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Terminator,’ ‘True Lies,’ ‘Twins’
On July 30, 2019 Arnold Schwarzenegger will celebrate his 72nd birthday. Over his long career, he has had an unusually varied career in sports, the entertainment industry and most recently in politics.

He first came to international attention as a bodybuilder winning both the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests numerous times. He became the face of the then new sport of bodybuilding and that brought him to the attention of the entertainment industry. His first film was a low budget film called “Hercules in New York” for which he was mostly used for his physique. Due to his heavy accent his dialogue had to be dubbed by another actor. His notoriety increased with the bodybuilding documentary “Pumping Iron” which made him a familiar face to American audiences.

True Lies Reunion Brings Arnold Schwarzenegger & Jamie Lee Curtis Together on Instagram

True Lies Reunion Brings Arnold Schwarzenegger & Jamie Lee Curtis Together on Instagram
A full 25 years after co-starring together in the James Cameron movie True Lies, Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have reunited. The former co-stars are all smiles in a new photo posted by Curtis on Instagram, which is accompanied by hashtags of their True Lies character names. "Together again for the first time," Curtis writes in the caption. She adds: "You still take my breath away! Older, wiser but still our essential selves. Learning, loving and laughing all the way!" Perhaps these two haven't seen each other in quite a while, but the reunion clearly could not have gone any better.

Directed by James Cameron, True Lies was released in the summer of 1994. Arnold Schwarzenegger starred as a government agent who struggles with balancing his work and his familial duties, all the while keeping his status as a spy a secret. Jamie Lee Curtis co-stars as his wife who winds

Pop Quiz, Hotshot: The Summer of Cinema ’94 – 25 Years On

The Keanu Reeves we all know and love, the super-agile, sharply dressed, rather taciturn action hero currently death-dealing his way through John Wick Chapter 3, was born 25 years ago, in the summer movie season of 1994 (yes that’s right…25 years ago!).

Until that point, Reeves had been a pin-up presence in arthouse treasures like River’s Edge and Permanent Record whose stock had risen sharply when he and Alex Winter had their first Excellent Adventure in 1988. After that, it soon became impossible to shake off his image as a loveable perma-stoned surf-jockey, never more than five seconds away from a ‘Woah, duuude.’

Attempts at breaking away from this unwanted mould and tackle more highbrow fare like Little Buddha often led to snide critical derision and more than a few titters, especially at his ‘English’ accent in Bram Stoker’s Dracula – ‘I know whhair the bahstud sleeps, in Carfax Abbehh.’

'True Lies': THR's 1994 Review

'True Lies': THR's 1994 Review
On July 15, 1994, 20th Century Fox unveiled James Cameron's actioner True Lies in theaters stateside, where it went on to become a summer hit grossing $146 million. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below:

Arnold Schwarzenegger leads a double life in True Lies. On the homefront, he's a boring computer salesman; on the international scene, he's a James Bond-ish spy. Similarly, this 20th Century Fox release will lead a double life, although in no such contradictory terms — on the domestic front, it will be a monster hit; in the international sphere, it will be a ...

"True Lies" at 25

by Mark Brinkerhoff

On July 15, 1994, the re-teaming of James Cameron, fresh off the monstrous success of his previous film (1991’s groundbreaking Terminator 2: Judgment Day), and his Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger, not so fresh following the flameout of The Last Action Hero the year prior, debuted in theaters across the U.S. In one of those packed theaters that day: a teenaged me eagerly anticipating the ballyhooed, $100+ million spectacle. 25 years later, has True Lies held up? For that matter, have I? Let’s dive into one and the other, n’en parlons pas...

Looking Back at James Cameron’s Aborted Spider-Man Movie

Henry Bevan looks back at what could have been with James Cameron’s Spider-Man…

James Cameron’s Spider-Man. It’s a big What If..?, up there with Kubrick’s Napoleon and Jodorowsky’s Dune. It seems like the perfect match, pairing one of Hollywood’s best action directors with one of its most action-suited characters. Just imagine what Cameron would have done with all of Spider-Man’s acrobatic flips and kicks.

Well, as most know, it almost happened. Supposedly, Cameron was setting up an adaptation after the release of True Lies, but due to legal circumstances surrounding the screen rights, he bailed. The director had convinced Carolco, the independent studio who gave him $100 million for Terminator 2: Judgement Day based on a half-page memo, to buy the film rights. He was all set to go. Then, it turns out Sony was also involved and Carolco didn’t outright own the character.

The Cheerful Nihilism of ‘Forrest Gump’, 25 Years Later

Forrest Gump was one of the big hits of the 1990s. It was the highest-grossing movie of 1994, making more than blockbusters like The Lion King, True Lies, and Speed. It went on to win six Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay. The story of the eponymous slow-witted man (Tom Hanks) who traipses through major events of the 1960s and 70s while never losing sight of his true love, Jenny (Robin Wright), was uplifting for audiences and it’s not difficult to see why. However, beneath the memorable aphorisms and Hanks’ eminently …

James Cameron Refused To Do Terminator: Dark Fate Without Arnold Schwarzenegger

If we’re being honest, the Terminator series has been on a downhill slope ever since the release of T2. For whatever reason, 2003’s Rise of the Machines decided to undo much of the efforts made by John and Sarah Connor to prevent Judgment Day, and ever since, the franchise fell victim to a confusing and needlessly complex plotline that quickly got away from what made the original two films so good in the first place.

Thankfully though, it looks like things are getting back on track. With series creator James Cameron on board, Terminator: Dark Fate is shaping up to be something special, partly because it serves as a direct sequel to T2, with the later films being treated as occurring in alternate timelines.

Better yet, franchise veterans Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton are reprising their roles as the T-800 and Sarah Connor, respectively, which is sure to please longtime fans.

Why We Think a True Lies TV Show Could be a Good Thing

Micheal Kennedy of ScreenRant is one of the many dredging up the memories of James Cameron’s movie True Lies but it remains to be seen if the show, which is coming to Disney+ apparently, is going to be in the same universe as the original or if it’s going to be a complete reboot. If it’s the latter it might make up for the fact that a lot of people simply don’t remember this movie despite it being one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most successful back in 1994. Yes, the movie is that old and yet it’s still considered to be

McG offers True Lies TV series update, now at Disney+

If you recall back in 2017, it was announced that Fox had given a put pilot commitment to a TV reboot of James Cameron’s 1994 action comedy blockbuster True Lies, with McG (Charlie’s Angels) set to direct the project and produce with Cameron and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow).

It’s be all quiet on the True Lies TV front since then, but during an interview with Collider, McG has confirmed that he is still working on the potential series, although it is now set up at Disney for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.

“Well, right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney… which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”

McG went on to tease a potential cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger,

True Lies TV Series In The Works From Terminator: Salvation Director

From Star Wars to The Muppets to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney has a solid line-up of shows in development for its upcoming streaming service Disney Plus. Now, it looks like we can add an adaptation of James Cameron’s 1994 action-comedy True Lies to that list, and Terminator: Salvation director McG will be the one to help usher it onto the small screen.

McG, who honest-to-god got his start as the original singer of the band Sugar Ray, is known for his high-octane style of action directing, which seems perfectly suited for a True Lies follow-up. Speaking on Collider Live, the director revealed his involvement with the Disney Plus show, saying:

“Well, right now my new thing for television is that I’m doing True Lies, at Disney+. I guess I’m announcing it, which I don’t mean to do. So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting. I

True Lies TV series shifts to Disney+

Kirsten Howard May 21, 2019

Terminator: Salvation's McG is still very much at the center of bringing True Lies to the small screen.

Back in 2017, it was announced that McG was about to produce and direct a True Lies TV series for Fox. These plans were evidently shelved for a time, but it looks like the combined interests of Fisney are working in the proposed show's favor.

Collider sat down recently for a chat with the Charlie's Angels director about what exactly is going on with the TV version of True Lies, and he revealed that it's now set for the Disney+ streaming service. "Well right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney+," he confirmed. "Which is exciting.

James Cameron's True Lies is Being Adapted Into a Series For Disney+ By McG

James Cameron’s True Lies is in my opinion one of the best action comedies ever made. I love that movie because it’s got a solid story, awesome action, and no matter how many times I’ve seen it, it still makes me bust up laughing.

Well, that film is now being adapted into a series for Disney+ and it’s being developed by McG, who already worked on a James Cameron property with Terminator: Salvation. But, that didn’t turn out very well. McG has always been good with the TV shows that he’s been a part of, like Chuck, so maybe there’s a chance that this True Lies series could be decent.

McG talked about the project when talking to Collider saying, “So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about

McG Has James Cameron’s Blessing & Is Developing A ‘True Lies’ Series For Disney+

McG is a filmmaker that gained a lot of notoriety in the first part of the 21st century, with his “Charlie’s Angels” films and his “Terminator: Salvation” reboot-quel. Though the latter might not be seen as a shining moment in his career. However, in recent years, the director has found himself finding new success in the realm of streaming, with two Netflix films (“The Babysitter” and the upcoming “Rim of the World”).

McG’s ‘True Lies’ TV Show Is Heading to Disney+

Talk about a new spin on the James Cameron classic True Lies has been around for decades, but it appears the material is being revived at an unlikely home. We learned in 2017 that a planned sequel to the 1994 action-comedy was being scrapped in favor of a TV series adaptation executive produced by Cameron and directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels). And today, while appearing on Collider Live to discuss his upcoming Netflix film Rim of the World, McG revealed the TV show is now in the works at Disney+: “Well right now my new thing for television …
