    House of Cameron - 41 - Avatar

    In Houselights final entry into their journey of James Cameron films, they take a deep and honest dive into the highest grossing film of all time: Avatar.

    It has become fashionable lately (just like Titanic) to disregard the film's accomplishments but how do you guys feel? Always loved, never liked, grown to love or hate?

    House of Cameron - 40 - Titanic

    House of Cameron - 40 - Titanic

    James Cameron's "Titanic" broke records as well as our hearts.

    It's hard to find someone who hasn't seen this gargantuan blockbuster that went way over time and budget. This week, the Houselights crew dives deep to figure out what holds up and what doesn't.

    What do you think of this film 24 years later?

    House of Cameron - 39 - True Lies

    House of Cameron - 39 - True Lies

    The action-comedy "True Lies" is up next for Houselights.

    This was a departure for James Cameron and the last collaboration he had with Schwarzenegger but it turned out to be fruitful.

    We live in a different world than when this was released, does it hold up? Listen to hear our take.

A deep dive into each and every film of our favorite directors

What started as the House of Fincher, now retitled Houselights, the podcast is a film by film analysis of our favorite directors. For the first set, the crew studied David Fincher starting with his music videos, all the way through to his TV series. For me, it was a great excuse to revisit these films and listen to opinion and analysis about each. Second is the films of Nolan, a director I personally don’t enjoy as much so it’ll be interesting to see what the discussions bring. I hope this series continues to other directors, well done!

Cool concept.

Fincher is one of the greatest filmmakers working right now. The hosts give a lot of great insights to his work. Cool concept for a podcast.
