    I think some fans don't really know what they want until they get it. They know what they think they want but then they actually get that and it turns out it's not really what they wanted at all. And then there's stuff they say they really don't want and then when that thing happens they decide actually it was something they should've wanted all along.

    Arnuld: "I'll do it."

    I was gonna type it in the accent but wasn't sure if people would think I just spelt it wrong and not understand me.

    Regardless, money talks and Arnie loves talking money. And people that ain't his wife.

    So he can make Humans the enemy like he does in every single movie he has made?

    No thank you.

    Villains in James Cameron's movies:

    Terminator - killer robots from the future
    Aliens - the Xenomorph
    Terminator 2: Judgement Day - killer robots from the future / hubris
    True Lies - radical Islam
    Titanic - hubris or mother nature
    Avatar - a conglomerate and a mercenary army

    So that's humanity (in the context you meant it) as the enemy......one out of six times.

    Well considering how much they made all of humanity look like the villans in avatar. Humans creating the very thing that practically destroyed them in Terminator. Humans climing over each other like Rats in Titanic. I don't really see it as ludicrous, dear Gordon.

    The RDA were the villains from Avatar, the heroes were humans also; and even then Jake didn't exactly distinguish himself. I'd also agree Avatar is his weakest movie. I loved it but it was still weak. Terminator is simultaneously about the hubris of some men and the determination of all men to survive. Titanic is weird since I'm pretty sure people did climb over each other because they all wanted to live: women and children first was enforced at the point of a gun. Although he was rightly pilloried about the First Officer shooting himself; that was bullshit.

    Funny. Everyone talking about how much Bay loves humanity more than robots and now James Cameron would perfer robots or humanity.

    No, I'll stick with Bay and Joss Whedon over Cameron.
