    Character Evaluation

    Peter Jackson is a truly outstanding filmmaker who created an unparalleled movie legend.   His early works are mostly horror, but there is no lack of humor, and he is good at using computer special effects to present peculiar visual effects. With films such as "Braindead" and "Heavenly Creatures" written and directed by the world, he has also become one of the few horror film directors who have won the respect of the mainstream media.  
    Peter Jackson is based in New Zealand, where the film foundation is weak, and he is keenly aware of the evolution of the times, and finally established his own film kingdom in the absence of funds and technology. The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and the "The Hobbit" trilogy filmed by him are masterpieces that have achieved a win-win situation in both artistic and commercial aspects. The perfect combination of technology and humanistic feelings makes the movie shock the audience to a degree beyond visual representation. The implementation of this route not only presents the audience an unprecedented virtual world, but also gives the movie with the real world themed special life. And motivation.

    West of Memphis quotes

    • Damien Wayne Echols: [quoting Stephen King] "All right I think we've been down here in the dark long enough. There's a whole other world upstairs. Take my hand, Constant Reader, and I'll be happy to lead you back into the sunshine. I'm happy to go there because I believe most people are essentially good. I know that I am. It's you I'm not entirely sure of."

    • Henry Rollins: [when asked why he was drawn to the West Memphis 3 case] Damien liked to hang out alone and wrote in his journals that he was depressed. Hello! He liked to listen to weird music. Check. He was a wise-ass in the face of law enforcement. I mean, are you kidding? It could have been me. Could have been me.
