James Cameron – A Filmography (Ranked)

With a gift for spectacle like a less sensitive Steven Spielberg and a knack for syncretistic mythmaking like a less heady George Lucas, James Cameron is one of the great purveyors of big, broad-strokes blockbusters. There's something a bit paradoxical in the way he preaches environmentalism while fetishizing technology and affirms life while reveling in violence, but there's a disarming directness to his films, and it's hard not to be won over by their robust craftsmanship and grounding in simple, primal emotions.
