Title: Peter Jackson's "fantasy" movie
Post by: frodomyhero on February 22, 2009, 10:36:27 am

I would love for PJ to do a remake of some of the classic fantasy films.
Given his great WETA shop and such. I would pick The Wizard of Oz. I'd love to see him do a more dramatic interpretation

Peter Jackson is a director of amazing vision, I thnk he could just about do anything he put his mind to!

All of these films are classics of the fantasy genre... but I think the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz is perhaps too ingrained in our collective pop-culture consciousness for there to be any need to update it. Judy Garland IS Dorothy, the same way Elijah Wood IS Frodo IMHO.

I voted for "Labyrinth" because although I'm personally a huge fan of the original film (starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie)... I don't think it's massively well-known among today's younger audience, and I think it could be redone to great effect by PJ and his team. :D

If I had to pick another fantasy movie (besides The Hobbit of course) it'd probably be "The Never-Ending Story"... Also, imagine what PJ could've done with Harry Potter. ;)

I chose other, even though it is very recent, he should remake the lion, the witch and the wardrobe, get a better white witch, the rest of the cast were fine. Keep in NZ of course. I would love to see PJs take on the film.

^ REALLY Liz? :o I don't know, the Narnia movies aren't my fave fantasy films by a long shot, but IMHO Tilda Swinton was fantastic as the White Witch.

You liked her, well ok, I hated her in the role compared to the witch in the bbc version and the cartoon version she was terrible, nowhere near as scary..

PJ remake Narnia, please..for me and Jen ;)

What a great idea for a poll! I voted for the Dark Chrystal. I loved that story as a kid and I think if Peter Jackson re-did it it would be so much edgier and intense. I would love to see what he'd do with it. :)
