Yes, I realize I am a little late on posting this review but deal with it. It is just a blogspot after all. I have however saved the best for last. This by far is my favorite Bond film. (At least for now that is.) 007 is at his best in this film he is suave, sexy and debonair. He has all the elements and traits required of a secret agent. In this film alone we see slight of hand, coolness and cunning and the ability to get out of any trap he falls in to. In this film he comes closer to dying than any of the other 21 Bond films. (There are 22 in total). He is nearly cut in half with a gold laser. How appropriate is that from Mr. Goldfinger. This film may have the coolest movie car in it of all time. The Aston Martin has been a recognized staple of the James Bond films this version may be the coolest of all of them. Keep in mind this movie was made back in 1964, the car in it has a smoke screen, oil slick, and even a radar screen tracking system. It influenced many future movies, TV shows and video games in the future. (Who remember Spy Hunter?) Bond is at his best in this third outing of the popular film series. In my humble opinion he met wit for wit and tack for tack by this titular movie villain. No one came closer to killing Bond or being his most noble enemy than Auric Goldfinger. (At least not in my humble opinion.) I have always been a fan of Sean Connery and called him my favorite Bond. Daniel Craig comes close but has only done two Bond films. There is no one better than the first I always say. Sean is at his best in this outing. This movie sets the gold standard for all future Bond films. It has influences on many future outings and even inspired it own Austin Powers film spoof title. If you have not seen this film yet than you are crazy. If you have not seen it in a while than what are you waiting for, an invitation? Well consider your self invited to have the time of your life. (In front of a TV screen that is.) Either way you are bound to love this film I know I did. 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!
