Pageviews past week

The plot of this movie is simple. Government agency makes killer bats. The experiment go awry. Why they get out of hand a female bat expert is called in to stop them. They descend on a small town in Texas where most of this movie takes place. The government once again is evil. They experiment on things they should not and work on projects they should stay away from. This is seen in so many films nowadays. The bats are the killers but the government and army are the antagonist. Once again it is up to a few good-hearted people to save the day and stop the infested killer(s). This plot is hardly original and neither is this movie. We have seen it all before. Local sheriff is put in charge when the shit hits the fan. An expert is teamed up with him or her and they must save the world from mutant or other wise deadly virus, animal(s), or robots. The movie is entertaining though. You actually begin to care about the characters and take them under your wing for safekeeping. You cheer when a bad guy dies and cry when the good one does. That is your typical movie. That is all that is, a typical movie. The film is nothing to write home about and not worthy of any awards. It is simply a 90 minute horror film. The trouble is it is simply not that horrifying. Yes, the bats are ugly, yes, the corpses are bloody but no I was not scared, not even for a second. 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!
