Comment Re:Peter Jackson. (Score 1) 459

I disagree on Starship Troopers. I liked the flavor, and the attitude. Very underrated film, and I'm proud to have seen it. Please rent or buy "Munich." That is Spielberg's best work, and should win back the most jaded of fans. Having said that, Peter Jackson and his crew are the only folks who should be touching "The Hobbit." The whole dispute is a disgrace. Those LOTR films and DVDs will be remembered for a century. There is a certain standard of film, a certain kind of special extended edition, a certain set of people I'd want to hear from after the release of "The Hobbit." I'd want to hear from the usual folks at WETA Digital, WETA Workshop, Ethan and the sound design folks, Howard Shore. The editors. Fran Walsh on the commentary (although we never actually see her on the documentaries.) The formula is already there. How many awards were needed? How many billions in gross? How many sold-out theaters? How many actors talking about a defining moment in their lives? If that crew hasn't earned the right to finish it all, who has?
