Not realy have favorite too, a selection and a rank from movies from directer who direct more then 3 movies who i have seen

Cameron
1. Terminator 2 DC. Never seen the TC. On tv there only give the DC.
2. Titanic. I saw it 2 times, a third time i don't survice.
3. Terminator

Martin Campbell
1. Goldeneye
2. The Mask oF Zorro
3. Vertical Limit

Peter Jackson
1. LOTR
2. LOTR Two Towers. Best drama and Special Effect, should hsve got the oscars. But is les in balance action/drama.
3. Heavenly Creatures
