Better director - Ridley Scott or James Cameron?

My buddy and I were just debating this the other day. Who is the better director, James Cameron or Ridley Scott?

I think Scott is the better director overall, but Cameron is more consistent. Scott has some absolutely iconic films that have changed the industry(Blade Runner, Alien), but he's also had some pretty terrible movies too(Hannibal, GI Jane). Cameron doesn't hit the highs that Scott did, but he also doesn't come near the lows either.

I also think Scott is more adventurous than Cameron is as well. Besides Titanic, Cameron has pretty much only done sci fi movies, where Scott has covered the whole spectrum.
