TRUE LIES
1994, 20th Century Fox, 141 min, USA, Dir: James Cameron

Director James Cameron reunites with TERMINATOR star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who leads a double life as Harry Tasker, a secret agent masquerading as a computer salesman, in this crowd-pleasing action film. Wife Jamie Lee Curtis has no idea she’s married to a James Bond-esque operative, and looks to used car salesman Bill Paxton to add some excitement to her life; she gets more than she bargained for when Harry takes on a Palestinian terrorist group. With Tom Arnold, Tia Carrere and Charlton Heston.


ALIENS
1986, 20th Century Fox, 137 min, USA, Dir: James Cameron

Seven years after Ridley Scott’s original ALIEN, James Cameron took the reins with this sinister, explosive WWII movie in space, about a platoon of U.S. Marines stranded on planet LV-426. Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley is darker and richer here - haunted by alien nightmares, going face-to-face with her deepest fears. Watch for Cameron’s flawless feel for detail and pacing as he builds suspense scene by scene (the creatures don’t even appear until almost 50 minutes into the movie!) With Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and Paul Reiser.


AVATAR (Special Edition)
2009, 20th Century Fox, 171 min, USA, Dir: James Cameron

Director James Cameron reinvents 3-D, science fiction and the Hollywood epic in this film that quickly became the most successful movie of all time upon its release in 2009. Sam Worthington stars as Jake, a paraplegic soldier who operates an "avatar" to explore the biosphere of the planet Pandora, a potential site for mining and corporate exploitation. Before long, Jake falls in love with one of the planet's inhabitants and realizes that preserving Pandora's natural resources is a cause worth fighting for. With Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver.
