    Great to see a few Kiwi's doing well in the Oscar nominations - Lord of the Rings filmed in New Zealand or should I say Middle Earth and Russell Crowe going for the best actor award. I know most people think he is Australian, but he was born and lived in NZ for quite a few years.
    Peter Jackson the director of LOTR, has quite a few fantastic Cult films out there, check out Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles, very dark, but extremely funny. Brain Dead I think may be called Dead alive in the US, is also a laugh, the guy is a genius. Doesn't own a tux, used to turn up at premiers in Black T-shirt and jeans, I think he will be hiring for oscar night. I like his style - down to earth, not a ego maniac.

    I think he's reffering to himself as 'Australian' these days, mainly because he's spent most of his life here, but I belive he's done the diplomatic thing and taken dual citizenship.

    Just as well too. This is the sorta thing wars start from LOL!

    True enough, I don't think Russ wanted to start WW3 between the ANZAC's!
    Good to see Lord of the Rings has won 4-5 BAFTA's in London. Can't wait to see the next installment in December. Peter said if you expect the first film again, you are going to be disappointed. Good stuff indeed!
    The man is a genius and he hasn't been claimed by Australia yet, what more can be said!!!

    LOL!!! Give us time

    I think it was part of the refugee deal during our federal election last year. 'You guys get rid of these refugees for us, and we'll leave that jackson guy alone. and let you beat us round a little bit in the cricket!'
