It seems Oscar-winning director James Cameron ("Aliens," "Avatar") wasn't too big a fan of J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" -- but he really doesn't like to admit it.
In an interview with reporter Hannah Litchfield, Cameron said of "The Force Awakens," "George [Lucas] and I had a good conversation about it...I don’t want to say too much about the film as I have a lot of respect for J.J. Abrams."
"I want to see where they’re taking it next," Cameron said. The "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" helmer went on to admit that the film is a "retrenchment" of the previous "Star Wars" films -- as it was intended to be -- without necessarily saying he outright didn't like it.

It'll be Abrams turn to judge Cameron when "Avatar 2" hits theaters in December 2018.
