True Lies

This movie is basically a Bond film starring the “Governator” better known as Arnold Schwarzenegger. It is directed by James Cameron (Titanic/ The Abyss) and co-stars Jamie Lee Curtis as his unsuspecting wife and Tom Arnold as his partner behind the scenes. I am a huge fan of the 007 series and I usually detest “Arnold”! I am not crazy about the ‘other Arnold” in this movie either. Some how this film works. It IS directed by James Cameron and Jamie Lee Cutis is always sexy. You cannot argue with an actress who started off playing a hooker in her first film role. In this film however it is her husband who is trading places. He tells his wife he is a boring salesman but instead he is an exciting spy who loves her. You do not need a golden eye to see this 1994 film I saw it on the USA Network just yesterday. This film will not take a kill to view but it is enjoyable nonetheless. You can add it to your Netflix Queue or find it on FREE “Pay Per View”. Either way you are sure to enjoy this Bond like film. It is action packed, fun to watch and has pleany of banf for it’s buck. Even if is is free. 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!
