Spy Kids

How cool would it be to have spies as parents? This is a reality for Carmen and Juni Cortez. The problem is they don’t know it, until one fateful day that it. All of the sudden they are thrown for a loop and thrust into a world of adventure and espionage and we the audience come along for the ride, and what a ride it is too. This film is fun for the whole family. There are gadgets and gizmos of plenty. There are bad guys and henchman thrown in too. The uncle character steels the show when he believes he looks different with or with out a mustache. All The actors are good though and the ensemble cast is magnificent. This is definitely one your whole family will enjoy. It has something for everyone and even a little for those stubborn 35-year-old movie critics whom look for perfection in everything. This movie is not quite perfection but it come close. It is a lot of fun. 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!
