The Fast and the Furious

The previews of this movie pretty much told you that it would have no plot. I expected at least something though. This movie while having great special effects, some amazing action sequences and vivid cinematography had no basis in reality what so ever. First of all, you needed a street to English dictionary to even decipher what the characters were talking about most of the time. Then again that would have been a waste since the dialogue was so clique and awful anyway. This is another one of those movies that has neither good guys nor bad guys it instead had bad guys and even more bad guys. Why on earth you are supposed to feel compelled to root for these pathetic criminals is far beyond me. First of all the characters were all insulting stereotypes such as the sexy Mexican girls with no intelligence, the unshaved Mexican male with an attitude, the muscular skin head and group leader with a heart of gold and last but not least the dim-witted mechanic who is only good at fixing and driving cars, and to young to make an intelligent decisions. Oh, did I not mention the bratty rich Japanese rival gang, the arrogant FBI agents and annoying, pathetic, greedy cops that can’t get along. This movie doesn’t even stick within it’s own reality. The inept screenplay various from thus mentioned whenever it needs to in order to make the story move along. You have the unrealistic love story, the far-fetched ending the total lack of consistency throughout the movie and several other problems I chose to ignore. This movie isn’t even worth seeing on the big screen even if you’re in the need for a good laugh. The only people I saw in this movie that were fast were those rushing out to see another movie and furious were the ones that they paid money to see this one. It’s appropriate that there are two F’s in the title of this movie because that’s exactly what it deserves is an F. Grade F

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!
