The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson was a genius. This movie proves that to be true. This film is a masterpiece of visual perfection; unfortunately the plot is rather slow. The plot is been there done before and the storyline is not that good either. Jill W. said this movie scares her a little. Dave R said I look like a Gelphing. (He was a fan of this film.) I alas am not sorry Dave. The film just wasn’t that good. While the movie looked and sounded good it was just to dark for it intended audience (children) and it was fairly boring to boot. This movie had potential though. It had some merit as well it just failed to bring home the bacon in my book and was nothing to write home about. I am disappointed this movie was not good. I wanted it to be better. Grade C+

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!
