Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

This may be the first time in nearly 500 reviews I actually watched the closing credits. I read them, I took them all in, all while listening to this fascinating score. It like the rest of the movie was fantastic. The story was loosely based on a book that fascinated me as a child. Today at 36 years of age I am mesmerized as an adult. The movie version or screenplay was well written and interesting throughout. The entire 90 minutes was fun and creative. I am only ashamed once again that I missed this movie in 3D. One of these days I am actually going to see a movie in 3D. It won’t happen today though. The pacing was perfect the action fantastic. In only one and a half hours the movie was a kids tale, a love story, and action flick all rolled into one. There were no complaints this time I loved every minute of this intriguing film. This movie is definitely fun for the whole family. You will love from start to finish. Even if you don’t watch the entire closing credits like I did. 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!
