Pacific Rim

To say this movie was awful would be an understatement. This movie was pathetic. The entire picture was an insult to Tokyo or Japan, which has to live in the shadow of Godzilla for many decades of cinematic lore. Oh by the way the Pacific Rim is not California it is Tokyo Japan. So why does every charater speak English with out an Asian accent I have no idea. My old film teacher used to say to “You can slap an audience you can’t kick them.” Well this movie was a bicycle kick into the soccer net of life. Every charter in this pathetic film was stolen from a privies seen movie. Those movies were not all that worthy of speculation and neither is this one. The Asian female is strong with the Martial Arts skills. The guy she falls for is a scumbag and even his partner cant sand him. We also have the annoying scientist. The ignored speed talking genius and the military Slime ball whom every one want to kill. At over two hours in length 131 minutes to be precise. This film dragged on like bad sermon. You kept praying for it to be over and closing your eyes to avoid the overly budgeted special effects. Let me tell you something God wont save you from this disater of a film only leaing the theater early can do that. 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!
