The Incredible Hulk

This is one of those movies that gets better as it goes along. They say wine gets better with age this movie gets better as it ages. Much like wine it is intoxicating. The closing scene in this movie along with the post credit scene in Iron Man makes me want to go back to the theater again in two summers. While I admit I hated Iron Man, Marvel Comics more than made up for it with the spectacular gem. This may just be the best comic book movie ever. I’ve always preferred DC comics over Marvel. Now I prefer Marvel’s movies better. I went into this movie thinking Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly and Sam Elliott opted out of the sequel after the original pretty much bombed. There is even a new director. Now I’m thinking Marvel gave them the boot and brought in an entirely different castand crew all together. Either way I’m not complaining. This movie “smashes” it’s predecessor. Liv Tyler plays the fiery feisty female to near perfection. The nearly unreconizable William Hurt plays the egotistical general flawlessly and Edward Norton is spectacular as Bruce Banner. The casting director of this movie deserves an oscar for his genius. This movie is not only fun to watch it’s a thrill of an experience. The Incredible Hulk should wipe the floor with The Happening. I hope this opening weekend draws in triple digits for its wallet. I will see this movie over again with anyone who is willing to accompany me. I’ll even buy their ticket. Tell your friends and neighbor, broadcast it on mountaintops this movie is awesome! 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!
