Epic

This film is well named. It is an Epic disappointment. I often attracted to animated films due to the fact the sky is the limit in it potential. You have less boundaries in such a film due to the fact that there no shall we say Early boundaries to limit the writers. This film however seems to have no imagination at all. The characters are all stolen from better more popular films like Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz and even Laurel and Hardy. This film however seems to be a collage of bad magazine cut outs and overly done movie clich├ęs that are well done in other films that people actually watch. My first clue this movie was going to be disappointing is when the usher had to call the film room to start the film 5 minutes or so after the film was scheduled to begin. As the theater light deemed so did my hopes of being entertained that evening. It is for pity the Devon Horse Show was in full swing that day and being trampled by a stampede of horses may have been less painful than watching this movie. Grade E (somewhere between D and F)

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!
