The Italian Job

If you want fantastic chase scenes, kick butt action, and adventures galore this is a movie is the one for you. This movie utilizes every kind of mode of transportation imaginable, from speedboats to subway trains and everything in between. There are helicopters, armored cars, motorcycles, speedboats and three of the hottest little sports cars you’ll ever see. They are called Mini coopers. The plot is not only believable but conceivable as well. The protagonists in this movie each have a character trait, there is the handsome getaway driver, the explosives expert, the computer genius, the sexy safe cracker not to mention the brilliant ring leader and head of the operation. Guess witch one gets the girl. I almost found myself cheering for the bad guys. I was just also hoping the real bad guy would get his just desert in the end. Does he? Or do they simply kill him off? You’ll have to pay full price to find out. All I’ll say is the ending is brilliant as is the beginning and the middle. In short the whole adventure is good. A total popcorn flick worthy of multiple viewings. The language is for the most part surprisingly clean and worth taking your mother to see. In fact you may want to take both your parents along so you’ll have some one close to discuss it with. That is if you can’t get a beautiful or handsome date to accompany you to the theater. Over all a fun roller coaster ride of a movie a movie you’ll not soon forget! 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!
