"Very interesting," Dan says. "This has taken quite the turn." Dan knows James Cameron did "Titanic". He hates to do it but he calls down his +1, his nephew J.T., who says he honestly does not know. J.T. thinks that Tim Burton did "The Princess Bride" and James Cameron did "Avatar". Dan wonders if that could be the title of a Hindu deity.
