    Jackson did principal photography for all 3 films simultaneously. Meaning he would shoot scenes from all 3 movies at whatever location he was using at the time. So if he "went Hollywood" it was from the get.

    Any saying that Return of the King was a "sell out" film is beyond retarded.

    As for the video. Why no mention of his amazing King Kong?

    They were all recoreded at the same time and released seperately over a 3 year span. So there is no way the movies changed, because they were already recoreded together I.E. one giant movie. Check your facts before smashing a good movie.

    I want to punch "PJ" in the face. After "Fellowship" I loved him, bought the 2 copies of the collector's edition DVD, 1 to watch, 1 to collect. It is the best book adaptation EVER!!! On every level. After "2 Towers" I was like, "umm, ok, still pretty good, but there were some issues", but gave the benefit and got the collectors edition again. Then I watched him ravage "ROTK", and now I want to punch him in the face. He went Hollywood.

    But yes, byro1218, I pray every night that they get the funding for "Halo" again....these 2 dudes would do it right, Neil Blomkamp is a special effects genius, and Peter Jackson....well, "Lord of the Rings"...'nuff said.

    Does anyone REALLY want him to take up "The Hobbit"? I think it will be to close to LOTR.... Ive read them both and the hobbit will suck in comparison.
