What this movie has going for it is it’s creative and never seen before concept. A man can seen two minutes (just two) in to the future and is doing a magic skit in Las Vegas. Not much of a plot for a n action movie you say. Well that is where the story begins. The rest of this action thriller is a creative portrayal of the always dutiful US Government in pursuit of such a power to exploit and use for the own purposes under the guise of saving millions of lives. Well guess what my friend I just exposed the strongest and weakest points in this plot in only one swift paragraph. Boy are my skills of brevity improving. What are some of the others critiques of this movie well read on I’ll tell you. First of all who the hell casted this movie. Either they should win a metal for appropriateness or they should be hung by the yard arm for lack of creative thinking. I chose to go with the first. Nicolas Cage plays the creepy man who nobody understands but his woman. (See City of Angels and The Rock) Jessica Biel plays that aforementioned woman. She is even turned off by him at first. Jessica Biel of course plays the sexy seductive, mostly naïve female. Now where in 7th Heaven have I seen her play that role before. Last but not least Julianne Moore plays the strong, hard nosed, relentless female. (see Hannibal and Laws of Attraction. They manage however to make a movie with a lot of bang. Many many bangs in fact, and explosions and an edge of your seat suspension. I may have to view this fun film a second time to figure out all the nuances, but over all it was fun. A must see the for action film consumer. It is not a film for everyone however. It is not one to be watched a a woman bible study or in a local bake sale. It is however exciting and not ne to be missed for a creative wow-em outlet. It even leaves an opening for a sequel so you won’t know what happens next. 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!
