Despicable Me

At last an original idea out of Hollywood. This movie was creative, funny and downright enjoyable to watch. I plan on seeing it again. I will at least rent it when it comes out on video. This movie is one hour and thirty-five minutes of fun and will please an audience both young and young at heart. Let us get down to brass tactics shall we. Why should you pay big money to see this movie? Well I'll tell you why. It is first of all really funny. The nearly sold out crowd at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday was full of kids and parents alike. They all seemed to enjoy this cinematic feature from start to finish. While we did not see it in 3D we did not need to. It was creative and original a breath of fresh air from the told tired sequels and books converted into movies that usually fill the summer's screen. If you want to see a good movie lately it seems 3D cartoons are the way to go. Toy Story 3 was excellent as is this gem of a movie. Both movies receive my stamp of approval and will probably make my Netflix queue when they come out on DVD. I recommend seeing this movie ASAP. It is as I said earlier creative fun and just simply a joy to watch. This is not one I will soon forget or neglect to tell some one about tomorrow at the water cooler. It gets my grade of approval. Grade A-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
