Why has The Hobbit so thoroughly failed at resurrecting the Tolkien universe?
Well, I can certainly tell you that it’s not for lack of trying.
I almost feel bad for The Hobbit. It’s like that little sibling who does anything they can and just can’t live up the perfection of an older brother. The one who was popular, class president, the valedictorian and the football captain. Since last night was The Oscar’s, I thought that that would be a good place to start.
