>>64569490 The opposite actually. They brought Jackson on late in the game for the hobbit after Del Taco left so he didn't have enough prep time. Then his corporate overlords made him stretch it out to 3 films. The time constraints are the reason it went way overboard with CGI rather then practical effects.
Hardly. The CGI is already dated, he wanks off elves at every opportunity (to the point of demeaning the whole "elves are leaving Middle-Earth and it's up to Men to solve their own problems" aspect of the story), and couldn't keep his schlocky b-movie horror gags to himself.
>>64570285 Wasn't his god damn decision. The Producers wanted to make three movies and LoTR 2.0, which caused Del Taco to leave, they brought Jackson in to this production hell even though he didn't want to, but hey, he's not braindead so of course he takes the god damn money. He had to do massive rewrites and cram a lot of unnecessary stuff from Tolkiens other works (and studio-produced bullshit) in there so he could get enough shit for 3 movies.
Apparently there were a bunch of things that made production a nightmare. Especially since it was all dropped on him after he didnt even want to make the movies. I feel for the guy, but really what would you do?
Personally if it were me, I wouldn't have taken the job regardless of whatever offers they were making me if they were going to put a bunch of deadlines on me. The movies were absolute dogshit in every way when compared to the great trilogy that made him what he is. These shit movies have his name all over them and the blame will be going to him for how shitty they are. If he would have stuck to his guns and stayed away then at least it would be somebody else dealing with all the frustration and BS deadlines.
