Then I watched our extended-version of Fellowship again this afternoon and I was reminded just how much Jackson owned those films. He created three pieces of art that are, well, pieces of art so true to the Tolkien art which inspired them that they drip with biblical themes and truth. So I was bummed again.
Then, tonight, things are looking up again. FilmChat's Peter Chattaway has put together a couple of news items and thinks it looks like Jackson will direct The Hobbit—one way or the other. And I think he may just be right. Take a look.
