March Lions

This Means War PG-13 Action /Adventure 120 minutes Two CIA Agents fight over Reese Witherspoon. In the form of Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. (See Mr. and Mrs. Smith but single.) The Big Miracle (PG) 123 minutes. Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell Typical "Inspired By..." film with endangered species saved by cute kids in father only clan. (See a litany of similar films) Dr Suess' The Lorax (PG) 3D 95 minutes Danny DeVito, Zac Efron 95 minutes This animated tale was released on Dr. Suess' 107 birthday. It tells the story of a mythical keeper of trees and one boy’s quest to bring them back again. He does it all for the love of the girl next door. John Carter (PG-13) 139 minutes Imagine combing three such stories of David and Goliath, Tarzan and even Star Wars. Throw in a live action setting and give a big screen format. Sound too good to be true? Just remember, this is Disney. See it for yourself to be sure. Acts of Valor (R) 111 minutes Roselyn Sanchchez, Emilo Rivero This Navy Seals war movie took over two years to put together. It is about the war on drugs in our modern day climate. The cast is unknown but the soundtrack is totally familiar. This soundtrack includes Sugarland, Keith Urban, and Wynonna Judd. This is not your Vietnam or WWII film.

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!
