Best film producer (in my opinion): James Cameron

Sometimes it can be hard to separate the artist from the art. Even if they do amazing work, if their public persona is less than favorable, I tend to go “ugh” and pass them by. I have this for sure with writer-director-producer-billion-dollar-movie-maker James Cameron. For the past several years, I’ve been relegating him to “Oh, THAT guy,” status because of how he’s often come across in the media. And yet I can’t deny he’s an extremely talented visual filmmaker who clearly has an affinity for science fiction, given that out of the eight feature films he’s directed, six of them are sci-fi in nature. I just wish he hadn’t yelled he was the “King of the World.”

Below is my personal ranking of James Cameron’s seven films made post-Piranha II: The Spawning, because he’s sort of disowned that one anyway. I would like to at least mention that before he was a director, he did some truly amazing work in the art department for Roger Corman’s studio and contributed to movies like Escape from New York and, one of my favorites, Battle Beyond the Stars.

Here is my top 10 movies made by James Cameron:

  1. Avatar
  2. Titanic
  3. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
  4. Aliens
  5. The Terminator
  6. True Lies
  7. Aliens of the Deep
  8. This Time It’s War
  9. Minority Report
  10. Xenogenesis
