The Comebacks

I found this movie to very choring. Meaning that I could do my household chores while watching this horrific film. I was able to vacuum my entire apartment, clean and sweep the kitchen floor, and even do laundry (which involves exiting my apartment) without taking any of my enjoyment (or sheer lack their of) of viewing this film. Not only was this so-called comedy not funny it was actually unfathomably poor. It is appropriate that I got this movie to bring some levity into my day before going to a funeral. I felt s if I need to send a sympathy cards to all of the audience members that paid full price to see this movie in the theaters. Perhaps I should also send my condolences to the writers of this pathetic movie. They are after all the ones that killed the half -hazard jokes in this wretched film. The movie was directed Tom Brady. (Yes, that tom Brady.) The main character was named Coach Lambeau Fields. How appropriate because the reaction I had to it was frigid. At least when the Green Bay Packers take the surface of Lambeau field they have a purpose and the purpose is to win that game. I with all my patience understanding could not have a winning attitude when seeing this film. In stead the laughs seemed to be superficial. Meaning none of them seemed to scratch the surface. Take off movies seem any more to be hit or miss. This monstrosity was definitely a miss. I’m such a fan of feel good sports movies I thought I might like this movie. (I was wrong) You can say I’m not being a good sport but I challenge you there fore to find any redeeming quality in this waste of film. I can now sympathize with tom Brady after being sacked because I know what true pain feels like. It’s the same feeling you get when watching this feature presentation. Grade F

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!
