I would say very furiously indeed
that if there are hobbit men there would be hobbit chickens
i dunno much about the film industry but i'd be surprised if the director's the one responsible for everything that happens related to the film - i assumed a director's role was just related to the actual filming process. and you have producers, stage managers etc who're the ones responsible for looking after the animals etc?
and the statement released says that no animals died during production.
She more objects to the use of real animals in film at all. But then that's what you'd expect from the head of PETA.
people blame david cameron for the state of the economy. its the same principle
Peter Jackson isn't head of the production. He's the director, he might be head of the artisic direction of the film but not the logistical side.
That's like saying he's responsible if the catering is crap.
but the immediate responsibility of the animals welfare lies with the wranglers and the company they work for. It's not Jackson's responsibility.
probably 2 dozen animals were killed for what you're going to eat in Christmas week and doubtless many of them were kept n cruel and inhumane conditions
and that gets cancelled. these guys kills a couple dozen animals and we still have to sit through three instalments?
in the case of films like The Godfather, I'd allow for probably.....50 owls, couple of giraffes and dozens of otters
Jackson has even less of an excuse than most: he's the Gandalf of CGI – computer-generated imagery – yet to me he's apparently playing the role of Sauron, wielding power and control over animals simply because he can.
Scene: Jackson sits on his throne of blood, laughing manically as he demands a pig dance for him
As he couldn't fathom why people were saying these things about him and the people he'd worked with.
Also, I'm prepared to be wrong on this, but I think PETA's soruce for this story was someone who was sacked from the production.
And even by op-ed standards this is hilariously biased with plenty of hyperbole that damages their point rather than strengthens it, as pointed out above
Where the hell did these hunter orcs following the dwarves through Rhudaur come from?! Theyre not in the book! Also, they seem to have got access to weaponry when to begin with, they dont have any in the actual story. Also bilbo gets caught by the trolls when he attemots to steal a wallet that is actually a creature and it squeaks! This is just what I know so far Fuming.
jesus christ what a moron
