“Terminator 2” was a big budget follow-up to the first film. It’s set about 12 years in the future, and the first movie’s main character has a son who is destined to be a hero someday, but currently, he’s just a junior high-school kid, and his mom is in an asylum. Another cyborg, this one a shapeshifter, comes back from the future and tries to kill the son while a replica of the Arnold Schwarzenegger cyborg from the first move comes back to protect him. The movie develops into a battle of the cyborgs. It’s a very exciting film and many people prefer it to the first one. Like many other James Cameron movies, it also had a pivotal effect on the world of special effects because of the computer techniques used for the shape shifting cyborg.

“Titanic” is one of the most successful James Cameron movies to date. It is an exciting retelling of the tragic, historic event when the Titanic sank, and it’s wrapped in a poignant love story. Some people think this movie is somewhat melodramatic, and that may be true, but it was also extremely successful. The computer effects used in the dramatic ending sequence were among the most elaborate ever seen by audiences at the time the film was released.
