Pageviews past week

Real Genius

         This will be my last review of the week. It is not only the final review on this topic it is the final review of the week over all. I am going back to school my self this week and may not have time to watch and review movies. So this was a perfect topic to end with.

      First of all I’d like to thank my cousin Scott for recommending this movie. I have seen the ending a dozen times but never knew the name of this flick. I guess you could call it the ultimate popcorn movie but that would be pushing it a bit.

         Now lets get down to brass tacks and review this film. It was entertaining and fun. It fulfilled yet another early morning time for one hour and forty- six minutes. The cast was excellent and the pacing decent. The plot was fairly simple but enjoyable nonetheless. The music was a bit corny but so were the 80’s.

       I liked this film from start to finish. It had a cute girl, an annoying narc, and a mysterious man who lived in the closet to boot. It was down right entertaining. The ending is legendary and the rest of the film ain’t bad either. See it today and decide for yourself.

                                                                                                                                            Grade B+

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!
