THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
James Cameron is an icon in the film industry, and this book covers his career in quite some detail, taking the reader movie by movie, with some sidebars into other projects.
Cameron might be best known for reinventing multiple genres across his 40-year career in films. Starting with The Terminator and his work on Aliens and T2: Judgement Day, and continuing through The Abyss and True Lies before shifting to drama with the smash hit Titanic Cameron has always found new ways to approach his subject matter. (affiliate links) “He doesn’t simply make films,” writes Nathan, “he invents the means to match his imagination.” And that imagination seems to know no bounds as his films have taken us to futuristic wastelands, deep sea stations, and of course to distant planets.
Nathan’s book (affiliate link) provides a wonderful companion for those looking to dive even deeper into the world of James Cameron and learn what makes this master tick as they patiently wait for his most anticipated film to arrive in theaters this December.

I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
