Cameron is capable of delivering slick, entertaining blockbusters, but it can turn kitsch very fast. He directed some of the absolute biggest films out there, so unless you're completely adverse to blockbusters, his oeuvre is a must.

Regardless of its diminishing appeal, Aliens is still a film I love revisiting (though the next time I might just ditch the Director's Cut).

Great adventure, strenghtened by a strong mix of scifi, fantasy and action elements. The uncut version is a little long though and the ending is pretty cheesy. Still a very charming film with a bunch of memorable scenes, just not as good as I remembered.

Dubious filler
