Sleepless in Seattle

This may be a first ladies and gentlemen I do belive this is the first Meg Ryan film I’ve ever reviewed (or seen for that matter) where she doesn’t hate the guy at the beginning and fall in love with him in the end. In fact she loves him from the first time she lays eyes on him Or should I say ears on him. She much like many radio listeners across America fall in love with this lonely depressed widow over a radio show. Where the titular character named Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and dubbed Sleepless in Seattle due to his insomnia in a town known for its frequent rain. It is the son that is the heart of the story here not the frequent bouts of precipitation in one of our northern most metropolis’. He is perfectly played by Ross Malinger. Ryan and Hanks were up for Golden Globe nods as were the composers and screenplay writers up for the more popular Ocars. He came up with only and MTV Music awards nomine and actually took home a prize the Young Artist Award in a breakthrough roll. How this came to be true, I’ll never know. You ‘ll have A whale of a time explaining that one. (his name is Jonah.) This movie was good just not excellent. It has some tired cliché momenmts like characters just missing each other and finally meeting at the end. (as if by fate) The casting director was terribly unoriginal Bull Pullman played annoying as always and Meg Ryan was nothing more than a washed over version of Sally Albright. (she met Harry four year previous earlier remember.) The story line was fairly original. While not a jaw dropper of a concept it was over cute in the end. The kid stole the show over the two marquee players. Then again much like his character he did bring the film together. He was in a way the Elmer’s to their relationship. He north and south ends of their magnetic attraction. As a result he deserves an A for effort. All though I can only give the over all film 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!
