(Knew my comment would cause a stir)
Australia has developed such productions as:
*Star Wars Episodes II and III
*The Matrix Reloaded
*The Matrix Revolutions
* Babe I and II (
I know but at least the first scored some oscars)
*Mission Impossible II
To name but a few.

Do our major airlines paint posters of the films on their ac?........no
Do we change the names of our cities for a movie?..................no
The Lord of the Rings films are great but New Zealand, be cool about this. I'm having visions of the entire population of New Zealand having a simultaneous heart attack at the prospect of you beating us at cricket. Do I see the NZ flag adorned with pictures of your favourite cricket players? Perhaps replacing 'God Defend New Zealand' with 'The pitch of Whykickamoocow".
:D Kiwi Bashing lives!!!!! lol
Fighting for the glory of the Australian Republic.
