Cameron only had one big film under his belt (The Terminator) when he directed Aliens.

It shows.

Aliens by James Cameron was as close to a perfect movie you can get.  Every scene is memorable.

The same is true with ALIEN(Ridley Scott). It was his 2nd film too. His perfect debut was THE DUELLISTS(1977).

ALIENS was the 3rd of Cameron. His second was the original Terminator. His debut was the awful PIRANHAS 2.

So I thought. Apparently not.

He did sweet FA on Piranhas 2. He was only hired to satisfy some weird contractual obligation the producer had, then was fired under false pretenses.

As SiL said, crediting him for that - and using it to criticise him, as you seem to be doing - is pretty stupid. He was an FX guy who was suddenly promoted to director when the original guy was fired, and even then he was simply a front under the complete control of the film's producer - he wasn't even allowed to see any of the footage he shot, much less oversee it's editing. It can hardly be considered a Cameron movie.

Not to mention he's personally mocked what a terrible movie it was on numerous occasions.

His OFFICIAL(see IMDb or any other news outlet) debut was PIRANHAS 2. It's FACT.

It doesn't matter if you, SiL or any other don't consider his first movie.

And according to IMDb, Tombstone is officially a George P. Cosmatos film, even though it was actually directed by Kurt Russell.

It's called a ghost director.

It's no different to Walter Hill and David Giler not being credited as writers on Alien, even though they contributed the entire Ash subplot, among other things.

It makes sense to me that Piranha 2 is not Cameron, because in all honestly I'd rather watch a cheap and lousy film like that than an expensive lousy film like Titanic. Neither script impresses so... um... Titanic's got some pretty FX, Piranha 2's got some tits. Tits win.

Titanic has tits as well.

I suppose this Forum is Ridley Scott versus James cameron versus Neill blomkamp all the time.

LOL

Titanic is a 3 hour long disaster movie with a dull love story.
