Aliens of the Deep
Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
Cameron and his brother built the underwater camera for Titanic and used it again for Ghosts of the Abyss, so they may as well take it for another spin. This time, nature provides all of the special effects that Cameron needs, but otherwise this is as engaging and thought-provoking as his best work, full of amazing sights and delights for the mind. Perhaps most interesting is his explanation of how a craft might be send to Europa's ice-covered oceans to look for the exact kind of recently-discovered aquatic life that has adapted to extreme conditions in our own depths. More filmmakers with a gift for narrative storytelling and awesome visions should try their hand at documentaries.
