The Adventures of Milo and Otis

This is a cute Japanese made film about a dog and a cat on a farm. It was adapted for the American screen and narrated entirely by Dudley Moore. My running gag is it contains all naked characters, including a nude chick and a real fox and it is G rated. Granted they are all the real deal actually animals. The film takes the pair through quite a lot, those perils include, hungry bears, river rapids and attacking seagulls. The lost pair is eventually reunited and then goes the separate way when they each find a love of their own amongst the shelters during the wilderness of winter. They are reunited again however in the spring and two new families now and must find their way back to the farm. I am aware I just gave a good portion of the plot away but I don’t think in this case it takes away form the enjoyment of this fine family film. It is one I enjoyed with my family of four and my 3 friends when it was a VHS videoyears ago. It is one I still enjoy as a bachelor critic today. It is one you are sure to enjoy as well. Hell I’ll even pay you back what I paid for it if you don’t enjoy it. (Keep in mind that was nothing.) This movie is not nothing though. Rent it from the Redbox today. 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!
