Emma Dibdin offers her readers the deluxe critique package in the outstanding “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review—Digital Spy verdict.” The prose has that rare temporary paralysis quality that makes one drool and mumble “Dibbbdddiinnn.”

Spy Verdict opens with a nod to Frodo freaks as Dibdin breaks out the LOTR reference at the onset of the film. It’s a glorious way to start a Hobbit review and shows that Dibdin is deeply in touch with her audience, or perhaps has a collection of her own Smaug regalia.

Dibdin produces tightly-woven paragraphs of insight that cut deep to the heart of her argument. One will learn about the importance of the internal conflict of the film, however the critic also makes sure to offer up the goods on the action sequences. It may be almost be too much Dibdin for some, so thirty-second breaks are recommended for her biggest fans.

After several paragraphs of kind criticism, Dibdin gets stern with biting comments on the padding of the plot and its “foreplay” quality. One will be pleased by the finely-tuned paragraphs on the characters that close out the intellectual yet hilarious piece.

Emmy Dibdin has created high art with Spy Verdict, inspired by the streets of Smaugland.
