    It'd be a ridiculously bloated film about a boat that sinks with hundreds of people still on board...no wait.

    The Hans Zimmer score would have been replaced by a James Horner score sounding a little too much like Titanic, Enemy At The Gates, Legends Of The Fall, Courage Under Fire, ...etc. [​IMG]

    Actually, maybe it would have been pretty good, since all of James Cameron's films are about a group of people in a situation where, if something can go wrong, it does. It still would have the horrible love story....[​IMG]
    And also, probably true about the boobies.

    It would have been very similar to how it is now.

    I can't see how you could honestly think a film by Bay could be anything like one by Cameron.

    It's amazing that Cameron and Titanic get a bad rap from some movie lovers. Cameron is one of the VERY FEW directors to turn Hollywood's machinery to the use of FILMMAKING, not profiteering. Yes, he's an egomaniac, but he's also brilliant and meticulous. Thank goodness he is steering clear of T3.

    His PH (and he never would have made it) would have been better cast, more accurate with regards to history, and would have flowed much better. And I liked PH as is, but I could see the GREAT movie underneath the decent one.

    People still seem to forget that Titanic was a HUGE risk, and Cameron put his money and time on the line to finish what he started, because he believed in it. His passion for storytelling is sorely missing in today's market.

    Can you imagine a summer where a summer movie was better than the hype...I can. 1991 with T2.

    Yeah, he's a prick, but I'll see his next movie, sight unseen.

    Take care,

    Chuck

    P.S. Edited for grammar, sorry.

    Chuck,
    I agree with you more than my last post may lead you to believe. James Cameron has directed some of my all time favorite movies, without a doubt. And he's not afraid of SF...[​IMG]
    To be honest, I had know idea who Bay was when I first saw "Armageddon," but I swear I thought, "This guy is trying real hard to be James Cameron." I felt I was watching someone trying to remake "The Abyss" in space. That was the logic I was using when I implied that PH would be similar if Cameron directed. I should have said, "similar, but better."
    And yes, I'm scared as heck to see what Schwartzy is going to do to T3[​IMG]
    Also, y'all may find this amusing, but I think I may be the only person on God's Green Earth who hasn't seen "Titanic."
    Let the persecution begin!
