It doesn t sound like James Cameron liked Star Wars: The Force Awakens very much.
A new interview with the influential director of Terminator, Titanic, and Avatar is now online and when asked about the film, he does a beautiful dance around his real feelings.
Here s the clip, which is from a longer interview Cameron conducted with a reporter named Hannah Litchfield.
Cameron is one of those filmmakers whose opinion we all hold very highly.
Maybe it s because he s consistently made such great, impactful movies that advanced technology.
He eventually gets around to calling the film a retrenchment of Lucas s six films, a fact J.J. Abrams has openly admitted to, but it s pretty obvious he didn t like it.
