It really seems to me to be more of a WB issue than a PJ issue. Jackson had plenty of good faith momentum going into The Hobbit from LOTR. He is probably not in control of things like making sure the new boxes are compatible with the LOTR boxes. Saying 25 minutes, then changing it to 13 - I think he is in control of that, but with heavy WB influence.

He always makes a good impression on me when I see him in videos despite my complaints. I like Peter Jackson from afar, but I don't know him personally so my objectivity tells me I cannot completely trust videos and interviews. I can see, however, where he has to be politic at times in his position to stay friendly with the studio, government, or whomever else he needs to please, giving less than candid responses. In that sense, I have some sympathy for what he has to deal with every day.

But The Hobbit has turned into something less than LOTR and so any lost momentum, I feel, has only been lost through mistakes on The Hobbit and not anyone's personal opinions of the man. I only hope that the next two films bring it back.
