Yes I'm a big fan, sad to see Cameron's made so few films, Scorsese's made more films in half the time, looking forward to his next movie, Battle Angel, in 2007!

Yep, Piranha 2 was pretty awful.

Huh? Piranha 2 is quality "so bad it's good" entertainment!

His movies are highly watchable, they just don't reach the "love it" level anymore.

*1. Terminator 2: Judgement Day - A-
2. The Terminator - A-
*3. Aliens - B+
4. Titanic - B+
5. Avatar 3D - B+
6. True Lies - B+
7. The Abyss - B+
8. Piranha 2: The Spawning - B
(Now that is an idea for a movie: Flying Piranha. You can accept aliens, bizarre time travel concepts that don't make sense, and that pansy from Mad About You as a diabolical villain, but you can't accept a simple concept like Flying Piranha?! )

Like Brook said, a lot of fun on the first viewing but the bad dialogue and the (mostly) bad acting make these a bit of a chore on repeat viewings2

James Cameron is just about the only "action" director that I conistently enjoy (he's also pretty much the only action guy who knows how to write a real female character), and I really wish he'd make another movie already!

Titanic (1997) - B+
True Lies (1994) - B+
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) - A
The Abyss (1989) - A
Aliens (1986) - A+
The Terminator (1984) - A-

Except for Billy Zane, Tia Carrerrerrerrerre and lil' Eddie Furlong I would disagree about the bad acting.
I don't care for modern films. All crashing cars and close-ups of people's feet.
