Peter Jackson's Five Favorite Films

Sort by: Showing 5 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 1246 Average listal rating (789 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.9
King Kong (1933)


Peter Jackson : "King Kong -- the original 1933 King Kong, which is the film that got me interested in filmmaking when I saw it when I was eight years old."
People who added this item 1623 Average listal rating (1035 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8


Peter Jackson : "Another movie that absolutely blew my mind was George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. That was an unbelievable film at that time, and really it did shape my sense of humor and splatter style of filmmaking that I did."
People who added this item 751 Average listal rating (487 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.1
The General (1926)


Peter Jackson : "Buster Keaton's The General, from 1927, I think is still one of the great films of all time. They've just released a beautiful Blu-ray disc of that movie -- so if you haven't seen it, go get the Blu-ray and treat yourself to one of the most incredible filmmakers at the height of his power."
People who added this item 4292 Average listal rating (2888 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.7


Peter Jackson : "Several films by Martin Scorsese -- I'm a huge fan of his -- but at the top I would say Goodfellas, probably, as my favorite Scorsese film. That's a movie that I always see when I feel that my imagination is kind of stuck and trapped, and I can't think of a way forward. I watch Goodfellas and suddenly it frees me up entirely; it reminds me of what great film directing is all about."

Peter Jackson : "The fifth movie, I would say... let me see... I would have to say it would probably be Jaws, 'cause I think that Jaws... it's the height of suspense for filmmaking, it was the start of the summer blockbuster, it was the beginning of an entire genre of filmmaking and obviously the beginning, in some respects, of Steven Spielberg's career. I think Jaws is a remarkable film.

Those are the five today. You ask me tomorrow and I might change of few of them. [laughs]"
