    i’m not really into the Hobbit series at all – overall this was a normal interview … he’s got a radio voice – he should do weather and traffic on radio.

    PLEASE READ Jackson’s response to the 48 fps “matter”

    The sky is not falling just because the internet says it is.

    It’s not a problem, it’s a tool.

“I wanted to make you love a murderer. There’s no way of redeeming him. He’s a drunk and a killer. He killed at least seven people (that we know of). But there were reasons he was a bad guy. He was surrounded by evil in those days. A lot of people were killed building modern Florida—modern everywhere. Watson had plenty of opportunities to see how rough those guys were playing and he thought he could do it too. At least he rationalized it that way. He had the devil beaten out of him and became a very dangerous guy. And he couldn’t handle his liquor, which is one of the worst aspects of him. And he went crazy. Understanding how that happened is useful, I think. There’s no reason any one of us couldn’t be Edgar Watson.”
