El Hobbit-o

The Hollywood Reporter is...reporting...that my man Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) is in talks to direct a two-picture deal bringing The Hobbit to the silver screen. I think this is very good news.

True, del Toro's style is very similar to Peter Jackson, but I think there is enough dissimilarity to bring something new to the table. Besides, Peter Jackson and the Lord of the Rings films are way over-rated. You want to know Jackson's best film to date? It ain't any of that drab, pansy, Lord of the Crybabies crap.

It's a little film by the name of The Frighteners
