James Cameron is one of the greatest directors of all time. His knack for bringing in an artistic approach to storytelling for big-budget films is what makes him truly stand out. Making his directorial debut in the 1982 film, Piranha II: The Spawning, Cameron then deep-dived into the sci-fi genre with the blockbuster hit, The Terminator. But it was his 1997 film, Titanic that gave him major success and 11 Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture. Almost 12 years later, he went on to break his record with the 2009 film, Avatar, which took us on an incredible journey into the land of Pandora.

Considering the tremendous success of his latest film Avatar: The Way of Water, we thought it was only fitting to look back at some of his best work till date. Regardless of whether you’ve seen the latest Avatar or not (we highly recommend you do), you need to watch these masterpieces. Queue that watchlist, stat!
