Mopin' about the Mimzy
I wonder what my colleagues at Ain't It Cool News.com have to say concerning New Line Cinema's founding father making his directorial debut. I, for one, hope it's a whole bunch of insults! You see, loyal fans of the Mage of Talisker (that's me), there are a good many of us who will neither forgive nor forget how Bob Shaye screwed our Peter Jackson --- who, I suspect, is back home in Wellington, nursing his slightly wounded pride. Frankly, I'd like to see this 40th anniversary video Bob was planning for myself. Like as not, Bob probably directed the damn thing himself too, if only to challenge himself. As ever, nothing surprises your Dragonmaster!
Bottom line: Fie on ye, Bob Shaye! May your directorial career go down in flames! (Evil sneer!)
