Mr. Brooks

Kevin Costner plays a serial killer driven by his alter ego (William Hurt). He’s cold , calculated, and ruthless he is also “Man of the Year”. He is a business man with a thriving business and a beautiful daughter and A lovely wife. What then would you say drives him to kill? You’ll have to watch this movie to find out. Demi Moore is The investigating detective who’s been hot on his tail for the past two years. She is ruthless and cold-hearted and has the demeanor to match. This movie has a very intense plot line with lots of smaller stories intertwined . While the story line is slow moving at times it never comes to a halt. The drama is gripping and moving and never fails to let you down. Mr Brooks should be studied in detail. Costner and Hurt play perfectly off each other and are the perfect “pair” to kill you in your own bed. Psychologists could study this movie in detail and still come back asking for more. In short Mr. Brooks is a real killer and deserves multiple viewing. 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!
