Oh yeah... because you know the final installment of The Hobbit is out. 8D
Hence a handful of links brought to you by Google, since The Woman already offered the multiple-choice question.
Critics might have liked The Hobbit even less if it were shorter at Vox... aka Why we prefer our movies to not diverge too much from our books. ;b
Hmmm, interesting that various people see The Hobbit as very different from LoTR. It is, too. I'd been a huge fan of LoTR before college. I've stayed keen on The Hobbit and JRRT's "Smith of Wootton Major" [and "Farmer Giles of Ham" is fun]. So I'm not the person to ask JRRT trivia of, since in most cases I don't recall anymore.
If you happen to be a staunch fan of them both, you may want to avoid these links -- or not. 8)
"The Hobbit": One book to rule them all at the New Yorker.
HuffPo's Dislike Peter Jackson's The Hobbit? Then You Don't Know Tolkien (from December 2012).
Wired's Read a Lawyer’s Amazingly Detailed Analysis of Bilbo’s Contract in The Hobbit (from January 2013). Which is pretty frickin' cool.
