Where was Alisons complaints when the All-Blacks were painted on the side of a plane?Promotion is promotion and an airplane is just another canvas to display on.How much did it cost NZ? Well given that the govt has collected more in PAYE/GST than they gave Warner, its win/win for NZ. We even have people complaining about Warner having too much control on its promotion of NZ as part of the deal. It wont be long and NZ will have a reputation as being bigger moaners than the brits.NZ needs people that make something - and Peter Jackson is exactly that type of person. We have the whinging left complaining who want all things that do well to be killed in the mistaken belief that everyone starving in the gutter is equality. What pays for NZs welfare state is sucess, success like Peter Jackson becomeing wealthy. Now if Peter Jackson hadn't made Lord of the Rings or King Kong etc here in NZ, then we wouldn't have had all those NZrs employed, nor would we have those people pay PAYE/GST, nor would Peter Jackson have paid income tax on his income from it. So we have the whingers complaining because Peter Jackson has got rich from a lot of hard work, and a lot of people have earnt lots of money, as they would prefer nobody earned any money. Thats plain looney. How many dollars would have been paid in PAYE/GST/Income tax if those movies were made overseas? And how would NZ be better off then? Lets ask the NZ Actors Guild who they represent, as its sure not the NZrs who benefited from these movies!

I'm so sick of people complaining about the Hobbit. Why are you all getting so sick and tired of us being proud of the biggest movie of all time being made here in New Zealand? I think we should be celebrating MORE than we are! God bless Sir Peter, God bless Mr Tolkien, God bless the government for making sure the film got made here and God bless New Zealand.
