      Thanks Bruce, appreciate the comment and votes.

      I am very curious to see how he's going to stretch out a 200 page book into 3 big movies. And the first movie is nearly here my precioussss!

      Highest rated movie on the page is Return of the King, followed by Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers.

      Lowest rated is Meet the Feebles.

      Nice hub on the Oscar winning director Peter Jackson. His early movies look interesting....and few of them I have never even heard of before this hub. I did enjoy his Lovely Bones and The Frighteners......as for his classic Lord of the Rings movies....they are just that classics. It will be interesting to see how he turns The Hobbit into a trilogy.....I actually like that he is using more of Tolkein's characters from other stories....I know purists are very upset with that....but I say bring it on. Voted up and awesome.

      Domenick, rabbit75, thanks for commenting.

      Domenick, I didn't know Braindead was retitled Dead Alive until years later when I got onto the internet.

      rabbit75, I'm really looking forward to The Hobbit too, not sure it was a good idea to stretch a small book into three big movies but Jackson must know what he's doing.

      Thanks for posting!

      Huge Peter Jackson fan. I am a Lord of the Rings geek but I was obsessed with his films way before then. I did not see Dead Alive from the early 90s.
