Life as a House

This is movie is one of the reasons Hollywood was born. It boasts a stellar cast, An incredible script and some great scenery. Kevin Kline leads the cast as a down on his luck out of work architect. Who is trying to reestablish his relationship with his son in his finial days. Hayden Christensen (the soon to been Anakin Skywalker) is incredible as the drugged out, blue haired, sixteen year old son who simply wants to do nothing with his life. His performance is incredible and his acting superior he should follow in the footsteps of Harrison Ford after completing his Star Wars movies. The rest of the cast includes Mary Steenvergen, Kristen Scott Thomas, and Scott Bakula. Also excellent in this movie is Jena Malone (Stepmom) who carried HBO’s Cheaters. The characters are all well portrayed and excellently developed. Other than Kline and Christensen no one actor has too much screen time or steals the show. They all work perfectly together in this wonderful script. You actually have A protagonist to cheer for and something to feel good about. The mood of the movie is warm, somber, comical, depressing, cheerful, intelligent and fun all rolled into one. This is a must see hit of the fall season which will most probably be over shadowed by mega-hits like Monsters Inc. and Harry Potter. Will any luck you will be hearing about this movie again soon when Oscar nominations are released. Grade A+

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!
