John Tucker Must Die

I went into this movie with very low expectations. I was expecting to give this movie a C at best. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This movie was entertaining, cute and actually pretty good. I am not saying it is going to win an Oscars or anything but all in all it was pretty darn good. Well let’s get down to the nitty-gritty shall we. This movie should have been called The Unbreakable John Tucker. There are four girls set out to take him down and all they seem to do is make him stronger in the process. This is a pretty good plot summary if I do say so myself. The acting in this movie was decent. It lived up to expectations and was as good as you can expect from a teenybopper flick. The pacing was perfect; it moved along quite well and filled my morning up with 90 minutes of mindless entertainment. The question is though will I recommend this movie to my friends. The answer is probably not. It was not on of the best movies I have seen and will not make any top ten lists. As I said before though it was a good way to kill an early morning and a great distraction as I folded clothes. Grade C+

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!
