Lord of the Rings :Return of The King

Ok this is going to be a week of firsts. Hello 2009! I started off on Sunday morning with my initial TCM movie review on my blogspot. I will travel in to virgin territory again as I write my review for this DVD movie. The trilogy is not on my lists of favorites. I hated the first one. ( It was long and boring) Tolerated the second one (it was better than the first.) I loved however the third one. In Theaters that is. This is definitely A big screen flick. It was made for the big screen, the sound was aimed at the silver giant, and only the large venue could contain so much majesty and glory. On my tiny computer monitor however it just failed to capture my heart, or my even my attention. While the three hour journey was excepted on the more appropriate sized venue. The four hour snore A thon (director’s cut) was boring on the tinier media formant. I made several phone calls ate two meals and laid gaze on my watch for what seemed like an eternity. Finally I got to the multiple endings. My only Achilles’ heel when it came out. My now weakened ankle was a broken leg. At least then I’d need an excuse to stay in one place. For this entire pointless picture. Instead I was dancing in my tiny bachelor pad waltzing till to the to end. (of this film) The closing was waltzing too. waltzing its way to confusion that is. Okay okay I’ll get down to buisness. Liv Tyler is stunning no matter what size she is (elf or full grown adult) her brief appearance was my favorite part this now late morning. (I put in the disk at 7am.) One the big screen this movie was colossal. On the smaller on it was lame. Big screen grade is a “A” all the way. The McIntosh is dwarfed in comparison. So I therefore give It a generous “C”. If you add them together and divide by two the average is just a “B” So that what this flick receives a “B”. 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!
