Peter Jackson: An Unexpected Career

Some careers really surprise you.

20 years ago, when I first saw "Bad Taste," I never in a million years would have guessed that the guy behind that would go on to become one of the most powerful, big budget directors of all time. Just goes to show what I know much I know.

This week we take a look at a career that went from low budget and indie to high budget cutting edge in an almost ridiculous span of time.

As usual the Thug hotlines are both still open and awaiting your phone calls, if you live in the US call 512-666-RANT and leave a message about your most memorably awful movie theater experience. If you don't live in the US and want to avoid costly international charges, just Skype us at The_Film_Thugs. You can also e-mail us at, or to be a part of the next run at this show. We are also on Twitter @TheFilmThugs, on Vine @TheFilmThugs, and on Facebook. Reach out, connect with us, and become part of the Film Thug family.

Until next time...

Jim out.
