Why did he get the LOTR job?
Even though his early films were all scary and very cheap to make they did show that Jackson was very good filmmaker.

They also showed how good he was at using special effects, something really important for films set in a fantasy world like Middle-Earth.

It also helped that Jackson was a massive Lord of the Rings fan, which helped the fans of the book accept that the films would be as close to the books as possible.
