The films and inspired-by works of James Cameron, owner of possibly the most-renewed blank check ever.
Summary[edit | edit source]
James Cameron makes blockbusters. Once he got his first blank check, with one slight exception his projects just continuously get bigger and more successful. And as the king of the studio pitch, he just keeps convincing people to finance those ever-expanding budgets - and he pretty much always delivers.
Griffin and David ask, how does he do it? How did he go from a Canadian truck driver in the 70's to being in charge of the most expensive movies ever made? If films are in some fashion about their directors, how does Cameron's life reflect on what we see on screen through the years? And we know Soakin' Wet Benny likes wet movies, but is there a point where even he is like, 'enough's enough?'
This miniseries was voted into being by Blankies on Twitter. #TheTwoFriends decided to cover another Cameron first, but eventually got back to Jimmy C. on a delay.
This miniseries was preceded by the We Pod A Cast miniseries on the films of Cameron Crowe. It was followed by the Pod Me If You Cast miniseries, on the films of Steven Spielberg in his DreamWorks era.
