Ghosts of the Abyss

Year: 2003
Director: James Cameron
Cast: James Cameron, Bill Paxton
The tagline for one of James Cameron's best films, 1989's The Abyss, is 'A place on Earth more awesome than anywhere in space'.

It's a theme he's revisited many times, and it's one Ghosts of the Abyss captures perfectly. As Cameron and narrator Bill Paxton sink over two miles down and it gets blacker and more claustrophobic, you get a well-conveyed sense of the spectacle that awaits you.

That's the good part, and more should have been made of it. But Ghosts of the Abyss is as much about the expedition itself as the famous wreck, and if you're interested in the stories that went down with the ship, just get Titanic on DVD.

Something of an unofficial sequel to Titanic, but not everyone is enjoying James Cameron playing with the Titanic as much as he himself.
