Every James Cameron Film Ranked From Worst To Best
10. Piranha II
James Cameron was initially hired as the special effects director of "Piranha II: The Spawning" but got a chance to helm the film after a fallout between the original director and executive producer. Despite its ridiculous gore, the underwater sequences are well-filmed — something that would become a Cameron specialty as time went on.
9. Aliens of the Deep
With stunning cinematography that spotlights strange and beautiful creatures undersea, Cameron takes audiences on a thrilling dive that goes to places very few have explored, especially on celluloid. However, "Aliens of the Deep" gets somewhat gimmicky when it comes to sea life on worlds other than Earth.
8. Ghosts of the...
"Ghosts of the Abyss" takes an up-close look at the doomed ship at the center of Cameron's blockbuster film "Titanic." While it sported some impressive technology for the time and some fascinating insights from Bill Paxton’s narration, it's unlikely this documentary will appeal much to those who aren't Titanic nerds.
7. Avatar
Cameron began working on "Avatar" in 1994, and when the film came out 15 years later, it became the highest-grossing movie of all time. "Avatar" sports some fantastic technology that changed the filmmaking landscape in jaw-dropping ways, but it tells a story that has been told multiple times.
6. True Lies
Based on the 1991 French film "La Totale," "True Lies" centers around married man Harry, whose wife Helen thinks he's just a regular salesman, but he's actually one heck of a secret agent. "True Lies" is fun, entertaining, and a great addition to Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger's filmographies.
