From the Hip

Sardonic (adj) disdainfully or skeptically humorous : derisively mocking. If ever there were a movie that more perfectly epitomized this definition I didn’t know what it is. Robin ‘Stormy’ Weathers (Judd Nelson) is a hot shot novice lawyer who manipulates and withers his way into a give me trail and wins it with a unique style. That style results in bouts of hysterical laughter and at times standing ovations. He then is burdened with an unwinnable lawsuit witch is sure to be the end of t is very young career and he must struggle with a psychotic defendant and his moralistic beliefs to win the case and keep his job or lose in his career and retain his conscious. Why I found the acting of all the actors to be amazing and perfect I would be less then a honest movie critic if I didn’t point out that Mr. Nelson was nominated for a Razzie for the worst actor of the year award for his performance in this film. While I found the pacing to be perfect and had to pull my self from the floor a times at (almost) after bouts spontaneous laughter not all critics agree. Only 8 critics wanted to review this alleged train wreck of a film. Their average on the MRQE website was about a Hi C. Well I found this movie to be refreshing and enjoyable. I loved it many moons ago when I watched with my mother and I enjoyed it today and will place it at the top of my list. The casting was excellent, especially of the part of antagonist John Hurt the aforementioned client Mr. Weathers takes on in his 2nd trail. Elizabeth Perkins adds beauty to the cast as his “lover” and fiancĂ©e. She feeds off him well and is the perfect loving partner (in life ) for this young loving professional partner. (in the law firm) 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!
