Return of The Jedi

At the time this movie came out I thought it was the greatest movie ever made. Now I am an adult (35 year old this month) I’ve written 250 plus movie reviews and counting and this trilogy completion is my least favorite of the original threesome. The special effects were fantastic. The new green lightsaber of Luke Skywalker was great as well. As for the secret that Lea was Luke’s twins sister who she actually kissed is just plain creepy. Other factors that are incredulous to accept. A) How did Han Solo gain 30 pounds in carbonite freezing. B) A group of trained armored warriors are overthrown by a group of “teddy bear like creators.” pleeease C) The hokey acting and the cornball dialogue don’t make me laugh. It is enough to make you sick. The good things about this movie. It is a Star Wars film. Star Wars is the 3rd largest grossing movie series of all time. John Williams’ fanfare scored points in my book as well. He is after all the most Oscar nominated composer of all time. I.L.M. still outshines Disney as the greatest special effects studio ever. The bad thing is Lucas (the script) and the aforementioned qualities go along with the overall package.

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!
