Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

We all ready know that Indiana Jones is nothing more than James Bond with a whip. The writers of this movie obviously know that too. Lara Croft is simply Indiana Jones of the 21st century, with two tiny exceptions bigger lips and tighter clothes. Oh yea this title character has breasts too. The plot of this movie is simple yet intriguing. Both Jolie and her father, John Voight play their perspective characters well. Considering that fact that she fits the mold of Lara Croft so well and he is creatively cast as her father. I wonder how long it took them to cast that part? This movie proves once again that girl power is here to stay. Women can stand toe to toe with any living man. Or in this case any dead man, robot, or stone statue come to life. The opening scene is a cross between the famous Raiders opening and a James Bond teaser. The rest of the movie though not terribly original but will not disappoint. Angelina Jolie is surely to join the ranks of the kick ass women who came before her like Aliens’ Sigorney Weaver and the cast of Charlie’s Angels. This is a move more enjoyed on the big screen and the even bigger sound of a multiplex near you. Grade B

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!
