Op-Ed from Michael C. Drout: Please Donít Make a Tolkien Cinematic Universe

NY Times Op-Ed from the pen of Michael C. Drout, professor of English at Wheaton College in Massachusetts and co-editor of the journal Tolkien Studies.

If viewers find themselves disappointed by “The Rings of Power,” it will probably not be because the computer-generated imagery is second-rate or there are not enough fight sequences. It will be because the new adaptation lacks the literary and moral depth that make Middle-earth not just another cinematic universe but a world worth saving.
And your little sister's immaculate virginity wings away on the bony shoulders of a young horse named George who stole surreptitiously into her geography revision.
