28 Days Later

First of all let me say what I like about this movie. It was free! I discovered it on Fancast a free internet website that has a few free movies I can watch at any time. I watched this particular agony session on a lonely Saturday morning whilst I was waiting for the rest of the world to arise from their daily slumber. Well slumber is what I did thorough out this mind numbing sleeping pill of a screenplay. It was 113 minutes of pure agony. The opening seen whilst predictable, lame and pathetic contained more action and intrigue than the entire rest of the movie combined. The true boredom began with a totally naked man lying in the middle of abandoned hospital wondering, where everybody was and what on Earth is going on. I have a feeling I’d feel the same way if I saw this in theaters . The auditorium would be empty and I’d have no idea what on Earth was going on. Why did I paid full price to see this truly horrible flick (I’d ask myself) and why did I stay till the end this film. I already theorized that no one has made a truly scary movie in the 21st century. Well I think this disaster of a movie proves my point. This debacle of a eye sore will be remembered 28 days later. I’ll most probably remember this snore fest 28 Weeks Later as well. I will not view the aforementioned sequel unless I have my hair set on fire and desire a feeling that is a close equivalent. To say this movie was bad is the understatement of all time. It was deplorable. I don’t think anything will get the bad taste of this movie out of my mouth. In fact I may need to gargle with turpentine and swallow it to equal the emotions I am incurring after viewing this so called horror movie. 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!
