This is a movie about guts and determination. This is a movie about true love. The main character is named Rudy, and he loved Notre Dame football. He lived, breathed and dyed it everyday. This is the story of how he got on the team and how he made his father proud. He did it simply with guts and determination. He did it all with pride. This was a beautifully put together film about one true story. It was not all like it appeared in the movie but it was true to the spirit of the man and that spirit is what Rudy and Notre Dame football is all about. It is that spirit that makes this movie so inspirational. It is that spirit that makes this movie so good. It is that spirit that makes this movie so much fun. Last but not least it is that spirit that made me cry at the end of this movie. I don’t cry at movies that often so that is a lot to be said about this film. The casting is this film was perfect. I had no problem picturing each actor in his or her perspective roles. The music by Jerry Goldsmith was good too. It was moving and inspirational exactly what a good score should be. The pace was great. The two hours (1:54) flew by like magic and I never looked back once. This movie may one day be considered a classic. Today it is simply considered a gem. It was the gold in the helmet, of Notre Dame. This movie was simply fantastic. This is a wonderful sports film. It is a good college flick too. It there for qualifies in my category and make up for my next to last film on my list. Look next week for True Genius. You know the movie with the popcorn pouring out of the dorm house at the end of the film. For now you will have to settle with this movie. It is not such a bad film to do so with. 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!
