The Nativity Story

I cannot not think of a more appropriate review than this to be my 777th review. It was my review of the week for a week but now it is posted as #777. It still works either way and is fitting to be such a cool magical number. I liked this movie last Thursday and still like it now. Read my review again. It has a new opening paragraph and is just a tad longer because of it. Perhaps you are reading for the first time. And that works too. Just as long as you read my stuff. This is one of the most popular stories of all time. It may even be the most poplar story ever told. I learned a lot about it though. I as a Christian have heard this story many times. It was told best to me this morning however. So I guess I really do like movies. The film ends with the birth of Christ. So this 101-minute tale goes into detail about its background. The acting is excellent and the cinematography majestic. The score is good as well and keeps you interested in the film. From beginning to end this film is well done. It gives you a bit of a history lesson and teaches you of the turmoil that Christ was born into. It goes into His family history ands well and gives you insights you may not have has previous to seeing this film. Over all, this movie is entertaining and well done. It was enjoyable to watch and I may borrow it from the Warner Library again. See it today and decide for yourself. If you don’t like it tell me about it. I promise not to hold it against you. 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!
