PJ definitely deserves praise for his effort, and for the endeavor, and for all of the things he got right that we would have otherwise never seen. Again, I have to give him full credit for taking this nearly impossible task on. There aren’t too many directors around nowadays that would have had the guts to attempt what PJ is doing.
