Shrek Forever After

Until I saw the marquee at the movie theater I did not realize this was the forth Shrek in the series. I have not seen the second or third and have not reviewed any of them so I am not sure if I am qualified to review this one. Here is my best attempt anyway. My mother always said be careful what you ask for you just might get it. That is the premise of this movie. Shrek wishes to be an ogre again. He gets his wish, with a vengeance. I wished when I went into the theater to get my moneys worth. I got it with a vengeance. The film was entertaining and well worth the extra 3 dollars I paid for it in 3D. The animation was fantastic. The story line was wonderful. I did not need to see parts 2 and 3 to understand this film. I was entertained for one hour and 33 minutes. I found the story to be creative and fun. I did not feel the need to ask for my money back and was completely satisfied when I got home at the end of the day. This movie is fun for the whole family. Much like the first one it has plenty of subtle jokes for the adults in the audience but does not offended the young ones. I would recommend this movie to any one even my cousin Scott whom is a father of two. 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!
