Boy oh boy... Call me hypercritical, but if Jackson means to do what he says 
here, and "The Return of the King" is any indication of what is in store for 
Kong, I'll wait for the video. (Yes, I'm a Tolkien fan... have been for 
years... and that cartoonish caricature of a movie called "The Return of the 
King", sorry to say, has made me change my mind about Peter Jackson's film 
making abilities.)
