Summer Hits

1. Men in Black III: (PG-13) 1hr 46 min -Sci-fi action, profanity, suggestive content. Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones. No summer is complete without a Will Smith blockbuster. This is the third outing in The Men In Black series. If the current box office tally is any indicator it may not be the last. See it today and find out. 2. Marvel's The Avengers: (PG-13) 2 hrs and 33 min- violence and adult themes. Robert Downy Jr, Chris Evens This comic book send off should be marvelous. It is the collaboration of the last few Marvel (Comics) big screen projects so far. These films include two Iron Man and duel Hulk films, not to mention Captain America and Thor outings. 3. Snow White and The Huntsmen: (PG-13) -127 min Intense violence & action sequences, mild sensuality, brief nudity Kirsten Stewart , Chris Hensworth This is a darker side of the Snow White story. Mirror Mirror was released earlier this year. That film was a children’s fairy. This outing is an R rated darker version aimed at an older audience. 4. Dark Shadows: (PG-13) 113 min- Sex, violence, adult themes: Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer. No Tim Burton film can be complete without Johnny Deep/ this film is no exception. This flick is the big screen version of a late 6o's TV drama. Thus TV version was an offshoot vampire comedy. (Yes, comedy.) The feature length drama follows in its footsteps. 5. The Dictator: (R) -1 Hr 23 min- Sex, nudity, profanity, cartoon violence, adult themes. Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Ferris This is a story of a fictional dictator who comes to America (New York City) and must learn to adapt to our "foreign" ways after he is kidnapped and his identity stolen. 6. Battleship: (PG-13) 2 hrs and 13 min - Profanity, violence and destruction. Alexander Skargard and Brooklyn Decker. This unique "board" game should make a fascinating film. While it has no notable marquee names it should be a bang to experience on the on the big screen. (3D- where available)

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!
