Iron Man 2

If you read the review below here you’ll discover that I found The First Iron Man to be grotesquely disappointing. (I am the only one in America who did by the way.) You’ll also found I gave it a D. Well this one in my eyes was slightly better, but not much. It had a few more scenes of kick butt action, but I found the set up to get to these scenes one more time to be overwhelmingly boring. This is a comic book movie it is supposed to have pizzazz. It instead just had nothing. The characters were are well drawn out (no pun intended) but the story line just failed to flourish. I enjoyed the movie as a whole do not get me wrong seeing Scarlett Johansson looked hot stripping down in the back seat of a car or dresses up in tights. Gwyneth Paltrow played the helpless blond to perfection. Tony Stark was amazing as the titular character. Don Cheadle was goo to as the best friend / sidekick or partner. The Rest of the cast worked too. I heard there is one more movie in the trilogy. I look forward to seeing it. I will most probably dish out cash money too see it in theaters on opening weekend, as I did the first two. I just don’t expect it to get a very high grade. Grade C+

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!
