Peter Jackson says he "winged it" with The Hobbit trilogy

Although The Hobbit movies grossed over $2.9 billion worldwide, they didn't reach the critical heights of the Lord of the Rings flicks, and in a fascinating behind-the-scenes video from The Hobbit Trilogy Blu-ray, Peter Jackson said he really didn't know what he was doing while shooting the films. Jackson came on board to direct after Guillermo del Toro left the project, and...

Cool Videos: Fun mega movie mix featuring 52 different films

A good movie mix video can be hard to pull off, but this one created by Alecc is pretty impressive. Clips from 52 different movies (including a few upcoming films) were used to create the video, and it also features the song "Invaders Must Die" by The Prodigy. It's no easy task to edit this many clips together, but I think Alecc did a great job with this video....

Cool Videos: Got 12 minutes to see everything wrong with the second Hobbit?

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG may have been better than the first film in Peter Jackson 's prequel trilogy to THE LORD OF THE RINGS but it still felt like a piece of a single film rather than a movie capable of standing by itself. While you can still enjoy it, something just doesn't quite feel right and yet I couldn't put my finger on it. So, maybe the Cinema Sins crew can....

C'mon Hollywood: Get back to the gore, Peter Jackson!

Sticking closely to shoe-string budgeted films and appropriately titled "splatstick" horror comedies, Peter Jackson wasn't exactly the biggest name being passed around the film community back in the day. It wasn't until he received recognition for his work on HEAVENLY CREATURES that he was able to break away from the cult director status he associated himself with and before long,...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug to hit blu-ray and DVD this April

The second chapter in director Peter Jackson 's The Hobbit trilogy, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, was a better-received entry in the series, as fans felt that the darker tone, abundance of action, and of course, the titular dragon, made for a much more satisfying experience than THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. Now, those fans can pick up the second chapter on blu-ray, DVD,...

Cool Videos: Creating the barrel scene for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

One of my favorite scenes from THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG was the barrel chase. Everything was building up to that point then suddenly this great action scene sort of breaks the tension. I loved watching it, and wondered how they might put something like that together. I had an idea but had no clue that they would have to cut down and edit 98 minutes of footage. A scene...
