Airforce One

Okay, I admit I knew what grade I was going to give this movie when I rented it from Netflix. I watched the two hour and five minutes adventure anyway knowing what I was going to think when I wrote my review. I have after all seen this movie before. Gary Oldman as the villain was spectacular in this movie. Harrison Ford was even better as the president. The spotlight award goes to 12-year-old Lisel Matthews strictly because of her name. I have a friend named Liesl and since my name is Matthew I naturally went with this pick simply because of her name. Oh yea she acted well to boot. This movie had a few other pluses too. It boasted a female vice president in the form Of Glenn Close. It had a supporting cast of Dean Stockwell and William H. Macy and it had an awesome score. This movie was wonderful from the start once it got going it did not let up and it only took a short time to build up plot points. (necessary ones) This is one film I will definitely suggest. It was fun, exciting and fantastic from the get go. The action was amazing and it was the most fun I ever had at 4’ o’ clock in the morning. 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!
