A possible silver lining [In reply to] Can't Post

First and foremost, I still definitely want PJ to direct The Hobbit movie! Should Raimi end up directing? Well, everyone is concerned that the look of the film would be too different if it wasn't shot in New Zealand and WETA wasn't involved. The silver lining could be the fact that Raimi shot both the Hercules and Xena TV shows over in New Zealand, and none other that Richard Taylor actually did some of the creature effects. Some have posted that they thought Hercules was cheesy or hokey or something along that line. Personally, I loved the show. I thought it was just good, clean, light-hearted fun. The point, though, is that Raimi does at least have connections to New Zealand and to WETA so maybe the movie wouldn't necessarily be so different from LOTR, at least visually---especially if PJ at least ends up producing the movie.

As far as tone goes, you're right, I don't know what to expect. I agree that Raimi likes to lean towards the "goofy" side of things. I like the Spiderman movies. If you didn't, that's okay, but the Spiderman movies were bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars at the boxoffice just like LOTR, so he must have been doing something right! Also, it wouldn't surprise me if the "powers that be" probably keep a close eye on sites like TORN to see what the fans are saying. It's obvious how important this movie is to fans and I don't think Raimi, if put in the director's chair, will want to be known as the guy who really screwed up that Hobbit movie!

And, if there are any spies for Raimi or New Line or Jackson reading this right now....

I WANT PETER JACKSON TO DIRECT THE HOBBIT MOVIE!!!! Do it right or don't do it at all!!
