James Wan of course. James Cameron the director of the fictional “Aquaman” gave his thoughts on James Wan, the director of the real “Aquaman” movie. Cameron who made the fake “Aquaman” on “Entourage” starring Vinnie Chase told Yahoo that he couldn’t make the real “Aquaman” because of the lack of reality.
“I think it’s great fun. It’s a movie I could have never made. You know truthfully, I never could have made that film because it requires this kind of total dream like disconnection from any sense of physics and reality,” he said. “It exists in a kind of somewhere between like a Greek mythic landscape and a fairytale landscape. And people kind of zoom around underwater because they propel themselves mentally I guess? I don’t know.”
Remember the floating mountains on Avatar, James Cameron. A small shot fired but it’s natural as Cameron is in the process of making the sequel to Avatar that takes place underwater.
He continued, “I’ve spent thousands of hours underwater.” This is true as this crazy guy actually took a submarine down to see the Titanic so he can make a film about it, but anyway, continue. “I’m very literal about my underwater. It needs to look like it’s real. And while I can enjoy that film, I don’t resonate with it because it doesn’t look real.”
But Cameron was not done mildly trashing James Wan’s “Aquaman.” It’s not just the lack of reality but also the lack of a message about the ocean. “And by the way, It doesn’t help us with our issues of actually understanding the ocean and exploring the ocean and preserving the ocean,” he said. “Although they did throw in a couple things like whales and things like that to remind us we are using the ocean as a garbage dump, so I applaud the film for that. Yeah, I couldn’t have made that movie.”
All in all not really a trashing I guess, but I just wanted to make a post so that I could write that amazing joke above. So what does James Wan have to say about Cameron? A couple months ago he told EW that, “Rule No. 1 is don’t ever compete with James Cameron. He’s in a whole different game of his own. And No. 2, our movie is such a different-looking film.”
