    Go back and watch the LOTR in HD, some of those special effects are getting pretty bad looking. Especially in Fellowship.

    I'm sure they have all the original plates and could update the CGI and compositing so it looks a lot cleaner without fucking things up too much. That being said, would you support this?

    I think he should replace all of the swords with walkie talkies.

    One does not simply update LOTR with ‘better graphics’

    Update LOTR in 2018?

    Black Frodo ... White Orcs ... Make Mordor Great Again dialogue... Purple haired transgender Legolas ...

    I'd need pics of Legolas before I comment further

    I don't like mithril. It's coarse and irritating, and it gets everywhere.

    I think there is actually room for a "middle edit", halfway between the shorter threactrical versions and the longer extended version, for the latter two films anyway I think the extended cut adds some important stuff but also some dodgy stuff. Could do that and a bit of an FX update before putting them out at the cinema again, LOTR branded diapers for Return of the King at 4+ hours.

    I can’t imagine a Silmarillion movie being good by anyone. Maybe a series. It’s just too disjointed as a narrative to make into a cohesive movie.

    I find that I can notice green screens a lot more, ever since I entered my 30's, even with modern movies.

    Leave classics as they are.

    I think The Hobbit films are proof that Peter Jackson really should move on from Middle Earth...

    I would say first, he needs to learn how to edit himself down from four hours. Cut out the bloat.
