Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2

If ever there were a reason for a movie to be labeled 3D. This is the perfect movie in which it is the most appropriate. First off the special effects were awesome in 3D. Secondly, there were several scenes (like the cups and sword scenes.) that were written specifically written to be seen in such a desired format. 3D means of course three-dimensional. Well guess what this movie was totally three dimensional. Much like the entire seven book series this movie was based on this particular script was intense. It may be the most intense movie of the series. The very fact that this (the 7th and final) book had to be made into two separate movies proves that J.K. Rowling fit a lot in to those pages. The acting was excellent. The actors (except one) have all been around for the duration of the series so therefore their characters should be almost second nature to them. That being said they (the actors) never seemed tired or uninspired. Once again I contribute that to the depth of Ms. Rowling’s writing skills. This is a film I definitely am willing to see again. (Ed, or Christina) In fact for once I think it may be a requirement. Since I started seriously writing movie reviews in 2009. I don’t believe I have seen a movie twice in theaters. This movie may mark my first exception. See it today and decide for yourself. I warn you however to bring an intelligent friend to discuss it with. The depth of this film’s screenplay kept me up till 2 in the morning. Hell it is 2 pm the next day and only now and I writing this review. All I am saying is thank God I am headed for vacation tomorrow. 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!
