Breaking Dawn :Part 1

Ok, I will admit I made the mistake of seeing the movie "Twilight" before I read the representative book. As a result, I thought it was awful. Well, awful is actually the best word I can use to describe that so called film. I gave it a "D" I was being kind. It did have some merit. The story idea was sound but that is the only thing that was. Hence, I eventually read the book and in time the entire series. Stephanie Meyer wrote the four book book series in chronological order. Hence the books got better as they went along, as did the storyline too. That being said, the films had no excuse. You would think the movie series would have been at least decent from the beginning. Well you'd be wrong, Twilight was awful. The movies much like the book series the films did get better as they process. This movie represented the final book in the series and is too intense for one theater sitting. Therefore it much like the final Harry Potter book it was seprerated into two films. This movie is the best film in the series so far and has shown real growth on the part of the consistent actors like Robert Patterson and Kirsten Stewart. The best part of the book however is the conclusion. The book's conclusion was intense and hard follow. This is also true with the film. I may have walked out of the theater with a headache, but the same thing happens when I have long chats with this cute little brunette at school. The film is well worth the price of admission. I suggest you bring a friend that is quicker, smarter and better looking than you.        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!
