Moulin Rouge

What we have here is a fairly uncreative story line, with intentionally unoriginal sound I should point out however that this was intentionally done. The very idea of the movie was to give you familiar songs in a different setting a setting that took place before these songs were written or their artists born The cinematography is breathtaking. The set pieces are vivid and colorful. The direction is amazing. The emotion is fun and the movie is completely enjoyable. It takes place in the year 1900 the last year of the 19th century, and it sends of the century with a bang, literally in some scenes. The story is as old as time. Rich girl falls in love with poor boy, poor boy fights odds and rich antagonist for her love. It does however almost spoof it self by having the play within the movie parallel the plot of the movie. As well as by putting some recent songs in a less recent setting. This movie is mostly one of great visual effects and majestic set pieces and not one that is intended to be totally original. It is however a unique experience and one that is best experienced on the big screen. 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!
