The AmaZing Spiderman

       I know what you are thinking this review is a long time coming. Well I was busy this summer after my college column. So here it goes. First off let me start off with a compliment. This movie finally got the title write. The first comic book on the web-slinging Marvel hero was bears the same title. As a writer I am a wordsmith or Carpenter therefore I like proper tittles. 

      The next thing I’ll say is uplifting too. This was by far the best film of the summer.  Usually squeals or remakes suffer from the fate of telling or retelling the same story over again and boring the Audience as in the e case of Bourne Supremacy. The film I paid to see today and walked out of in the first twenty minutes to see this magnificent adventure. 

     This web is weaved quite differently than the 2002 Tobey Maguire spin. It stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey Peter Parker’s first love. (Before his wife to be of Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst). The rest of the cast is picture perfect as well. Sally Field plays the worry some ‘Aunt’ May Parker and Martian Sheen is perfectly cast as the husband / Uncle figure of Ben Parker. 

       The antagonist often makes a film. As in the case of this fine adventure. Dennis Leary plays potential antagonist and father of love interest Gwen Stacey. As police Chief of New York City he is the perfect fodder/ foe to the upcoming so called vigilante in the titular role. 

    If you want proof look of this villainous theory look the Cinema of the past. Where whould James Bond be with out Blofeld, or Luke Sky Walker with out Darth Vader. If you want to cast out proof of Actors in these evil roles look the First Super Hero film ever made way back in 1978 it has the spectacular Gene Hackman cast as the evil doer.

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!
