Titanic 3D: A Blatant Money Grab

This just in: apparently James Cameron is the greediest person ever.

You remember James Cameron. That guy who holds the number one and number two spots for highest grossing movie of all time (and is nowhere near the top of the list of best movies of all time)? Remember how he made that movie Avatar and made more than two billion dollars off of it, then re-released it like two months later with a few extra minutes of footage just so he could rake in another nice big pile of money?

Well he’s doing it again. Only this time he’s dredging up his old movies and slapping some of that diorama-level fake 3D on them that was so unimpressive in movies like Clash of the Titans, which is even more insulting than asking audiences to pay 2011 prices for a movie from 1997. What’s next? A $90 4 disc 3D Blu-Ray set of Ghosts of the Abyss? A theme park ride of Piranha Part 2: The Spawning? Where does it end?

I’m sorry, I liked Titanic as much as the next person (the next non-psycho who only went to see it once and never bought anything with Leonardo DiCaprio’s face on it, that is), but I refuse to be a party to James Cameron’s efforts to line his swimming pool with money.
