The Value of a Brilliant Ally: James Cameron

Hello, Tor.com! Welcome back to the Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia… sort of.

You see, Bob, we’re doing things a little bit differently today. As you may or may not know, O my Peeps, this past week was Mardi Gras, and concurrently things here in New Orleans have been just a little bit fun-yet-insane, as is right and proper. Therefore, in the interests of PARTY TIME, EXCELLENT, I decided to give my long-suffering sisters a bit of a break re: nostalgia, and go catch some beads and eat king cake and dress their progeny up like Ghostbusters instead. Because I am a caring and benevolent eldest sibling, I’ll have you know.

Ergo, instead of watching a movie and having the three of us nostalgize about it (yes, I have just verbed “nostalgia”, step back), I thought I’d fly solo this week, in order to talk to you about a realization I recently had about me, and some dude named James Cameron who never amounted to much in Hollywood oh wait.

Because we need to talk about James Cameron, and how he created, both by accident and design, something of a watershed moment in both cinematic history and much more importantly in my own personal popular culture horizon embiggenment. Mostly because it’s probably not the watershed moment you are thinking of.

What is the moment I am thinking of, you want to know? Of course you do! Click on to find out!
