His storytelling sure isn't. He's done his fair share of pioneering in film making undoubtedly.

I'm neither of those things. I just prefer to go along for the ride and enjoy a movie that I'm watching rather than seeing if I can outwit the director.
I'm semi-aware of my pretentious critique of film, and most media for that matter. That said, I'm not going to aid the director in suspension of disbelief if the movie is just sucky.

I have a feeling I'm being mocked, but I'm still confused.

In terms of technology, absolutely.

No but seriously, what movie are you talking about? I tried to think of any other disaster movie that he made but nothing is ringing a bell.

Ha, Life Aquatic! I finally saw it last week and while it wasn't as amazing as the Grand Budapest, it was great too. I liked the look on my friends faces (i invited several folks over) as they were trying to figure out what genre this movie belong to
The only thing I didn't particularly like were the David Bowie songs .... in Portuguese. But then again I'm not a Bowie fan so what do I know
So I now have 3 Wes Anderson movies behind me (Grand Budapest, Life Aquatic and Inc Mr Fox) - which one should I watch next ?

I just looked it up and I'm guessing he's talking about some mini-series about global warming called Years of Living Dangerously. I guess I'm just not big enough a nerd to know everything James Cameron ever did.

Actually I've been watching that and didn't know James Cameron was involved with it.

I just wanted to see actors/actresses interacting like human beings for once in a different setting.

Yesterday i saw Belly and State property on Netflix..

Belly still looks great, i like how that film looks it's like one big Hype williams video but with a gangsta plot..

State property is like the opposite it looks like a low budget made for tv film but i like the main character 'Beans' and the attitude he brought to the role, Jay-z though can suck a big fat dick! he makes little cameos in the film as if he is the Big boss man, like he is the one pulling the strings behind the scenes but really the only "gangsta" thing he ever does is tell Damon's character to kidnap Bean's girl and that's it.

The Abyss. I thought it would be obvious since that was the movie being discussed to begin with.

All the references were to movies James Cameron directed. He hasn't really directed very many in his career so I thought you'd be able to at least figure it out by process of elimination.
