It’s a Good Day to Die Hard

It’s a good day to waste $11.50! This movie was doomed from the beginning. I read an article that said this film may be enjoyable since it is based on an actual Die Had script. Well guess what they were wrong. The appeal to the first film (and even the 2nd) is John Mc Maine was the wrong man, in the wrong place at the wrong time. In this screenplay however he knows what he is doing. We are supposed to believe he is on vacation in Russia. Yea right, that is lie saying I want to see my garden growing in Manhattan. He allegedly confidently discovers his son in the wrong hands. Oh sure, and I am handsome. The entire film comes off like a dull documentary. The action is minimal, the writing inept and decades old and the characters are pulled out of bad 80’s film. I mean Russia Really. If the next film is about the Berlin wall coming down I am out here. This film is apltly named my last two hours pay is about the price off the ticket as well as the length of the wothless tin cup of garbage. Grade D (I wonder why. [It should be an F!])

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!
