Tolkien Prof: Live Commentary on The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

Late Breaking News: Tolkien Professor Corey Olsen Offers Live Commentary on The Hobbit: Desolation

of Smaug

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 – The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is evoking reactions from Tolkien fans

ranging from extreme loathing to outright giddiness. If your own reactions about the movie are strong

(in whatever direction), you have an opportunity to examine them in the context of the reactions of

Tolkien scholar, Corey Olsen.


Tonight at 9:30 (Eastern Time), Corey will share his thoughts about movie 2 of 3 of Jackson’s adaptation.

Considering the book alongside the movie, he will offer his own insights and opinions about the

characters and settings of the second movie.

Prof. Olsen is a Tolkien scholar with an open mind. Since the first of Peter Jackson’s film adaptations was

release over 10 years ago, he has taken a generous (but still critical) view of the additions, changes,

and representations of The Lord of the Rings and the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy. With deep

knowledge of Tolkien’s books, he will offer a unique viewpoint of the movie that will give you lots of

food for thought.

Prof. Olsen’s site and on The Tolkien Professor’s iTunes stream.
