The A-Team

When I was a young boy in elementary school, this TV show was popular and my best friend was its biggest fan. I watched it only to please him at first but then became a fan of my own. Now I am all grown up and The A-Team is a movie. I rented it the day it came out on DVD and watched it just two days later. I am a big fan of the format now and waited for this DVD release with baited breath. I must say I was not disappointed. The movie was sweet, and provided a lot of punch. It was short on plot but did not need one. The storyline was fairly simple. It is the action the truly counts here. The action does not disappoint. This movie featured everything from flying tanks to bulletproof hoods. It contained a lot of gunplay and stayed true to the show in many aspects. In other aspects it did venture from the 80’s show. Well let me tell you something the times they are a changing. I am not surprised this movie did too. It was good however and contained a lot of creative sequences. I enjoyed it from start to finish. I hope you will enjoy it too. It is just out on DVD and therefore available at your local Redbox. You can also add it to your Netflix queue like I did and get it delivered to your front door. Either way works for me, as did this movie. See it today and decided for yourself. 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!
