James Cameron will not be eternal. Since Titanic by the end of 1997, and until the release of Avatar 5 in 2025, it would have been 27 years. 27 years passed on almost only one project, as good as it can be, it could be judged as a waste of talent. Would you prefer to see James Cameron releasing a stand-on-its-own new movie (maybe not as top quality as Avatar) each 3 years or so instead of seeing him working only on Avatar movies ?

I can understand your thought but I must disagree with you

With the liquid metal T1000 passing through the hospital railing gate in 1991 Terminator 2, best visual effect for the time ! And also an awesome story. The blue tone of the movie, the amazing laboratory building scene and helicopter chase scene that follow, wow

And Titanic, even if you may dont like this type of historic/romantic movie, hard to say that the movie is not really well made and effective.

Now for Avatar, the visual are still the best to date I think, if you have the chance to rewatch the scenes where we see the exterior human military equipments and stuffs at the beginning of the movie... really really beautiful all the details and the sens of large scale installation. And the visual inside the military chief mothership with all the light reflexion effect on the glass, masterpiece !

i understand that what sadly matters to today's audience is mostly the visual and the effects, but what matters to a movie should be the script and the acting, which have been consistently sad...

Yes I focused on the visual in my last post, but now I think about Linda Hamilton ''almost mental illness'' acting in T2 and also about the group of musicians in Titanic, what a great addition to the script !

Good poll!

Some edits for your list:

James Cameron will not be eternal. Since Titanic by the end of 1997, and until the release of Avatar 5 in 2025, it will have been 27 years. 27 years passed on almost only one project. As good as it may be, it could be judged as a waste of talent.

Would you prefer to see James Cameron releasing a stand-on-its-own new movie (maybe not as top quality as Avatar) every 3 years or so, instead of seeing him working only on Avatar movies?

#1: Yes, I would prefer if he could release a great movie with an always different story every 3 years 

#2: I'm not sure, let's see if the Avatar sequels will each one renew the standard before answering this question

#3: No, Avatar is a genius idea worth working on for as long as it takes
