James Cameron had some harsh words for The Force Awakens

If you dedicate your life to making films, it's a general rule that you probably want James Cameron's approval. If the director, writer, producer, and editor of the second-highest grossing film of all time gives you tips, you might want to take them.

Which is why we have bad news for fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Jammy Cammy has confessed that he wasn't a fan of the movie (okay, fine) and he preferred George Lucas' trilogy of prequel movies (HOLD UP, WHAT?) 

Shocked Princess Leia

Speaking to interviewer Hannah Litchfield in a YouTube video, Cameron said the movie only made "baby steps" in the saga's storyline, and it "was more of a retrenchment to things you’d seen before and characters you’d seen before."

Thankfully, he hasn't written off all of the new films, and is prepared to give the currently untitled eighth movie (coming in December 2017) a chance. Which is nice. If only we could say the same about the four Avatar sequels he has planned.
