Thought they would never be able to do LOTR movies and do them justice but hats off to Peter Jackson and I hope new director does as well.
I have heard alot of talk on who will play who in new film and am anxious to see the cast list,does anyone know when final decisions will be made?

It has made me a Peter Jackson fan,I enjoyed his remake of King Kong and both me and my wife discuss often that we would like him to take Jaws and update it.Jaws truly was an iconic film along the lines of K.K. and there was alot of discussion of him redoing Godzilla,but with it redone twice in 10 years we believe he should tackle the Jaws film
Only GoF could be said to be a "bad" Harry Potter movie. And the other films weren't "bad" adaptations, they just weren't able to include the voluminous material in a 2 1/2 hour film.
And YES, the fact that most adaptations contain very little of the source material DOES make Jackson's films remarkable in comparison.
