I would be ok with PJ on it, BUT only if there's someone who is not afraid to tell him, "That's stupid. Don't do that!" when he starts getting too ridiculous for plausibility.

He has shown that he can produce cinematic gold- when he's not let completely loose.

Jackson had the last say on each and every one of his films, so this narrative just doesn't stick, I'm afraid.

Even on The Fellowship of the Ring, no one was in a position to overrule Peter. He had final cut rights from the outset.

And really, the question isn't whether the filmmaker has the final say (which any major filmmaker has) but whether or not that filmmaker is beyond reproach. Jackson clearly isn't, and unlike what this narrative would suggest, has been talked out of certain ideas by his cast and crew on numerous occasions.
