Groundhog Day

How would you like to live the same day over and over again? That is the premise of today’s movie. I wrote it on October 2nd but it takes place on February 2nd. Phil Conners must live that same day over and over again until he gets it right. I lost count at 3 dozen but it (the movie) is not boring not tiring and well done until the final reel. Bill Murray, Andie Mac Dowell and Chris Elliot star in this excellent comedy about getting it right the first time around at least 36 times over. The film is perfectly cast and well performed. The soundtrack is excellent and the pacing excellent. The 101 minutes flies by quickly and are full of comedy and romance. This is one movie you will enjoy over and over again. I liked it at least the 2nd time around I may even put it on my netflix queue for a 3rd possible viewing. Today I found it on free on demand. Whether you pick it up at Blockbuster or in your local video store you are sure to enjoy it over and over again. Grade B+ P.S. This is my 150th review of the year and counting.

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!
