Chris Hewitt Discovers Life Force of Critique in “No Longer Draggin’”

In response to Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)’s 548‑word review of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug on St. Paul Pioneer Press

By ,

Chris Hewitt has apparently found a mysterious body water of Minnesota that allows one to critique with extreme clarity and focus. The critic’s latest gem, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review: No longer draggin’,” is not only a dynamic read but can also be used to calm oneself during the day due to the Enya-like quality of the prose.

The construction of No Longer Draggin’ features rich paragraphs of crisp insight and the overall feel is splendiferous. Hewitt lets one feel comfortable from the start with a powerful header image, although some Hewitteers may become frightened by the multiple swords.

Hewitt allows one to essentially become a character in No Longer Draggin’ and guides the reader through Smaugland with care. The exquisite writing offers background on the original,  but also conveys the basics of the sequel without becoming too boring. It’s a smart review which proves Hewitt to be a true master of Hobbit tactical writing.

There is plenty to enjoy in No Longer Draggin’ as Hewitt breaks down the emotional backbone and humor of the sequel and one will likely chuckle due to the critic’s thoughts on Peter Jackson’s cameo. The entire piece is elegant yet current, which allows Hewitt to blow the minds of both the young and old.

No Longer Draggin’ will be remembered as the moment when Chris Hewitt found the life force of critique somewhere in the waters of Minnesota.
