The Passion of The Christ

This is undeniably the most intense movie ever made. The audience was in total dismay at the graphic violence. This movie will make you cringe. I winced multiple times throughout the torture scenes. The movie is undoubtedly violent. However it’s not for the sake of violence but for the purpose of portraying a point. The story is as true to the Gospels as it can be. There are a few creative differences in it. These differences however do not take away from the movie. I am the first to admit however that I was lost as to what was Biblical fact and what was put in there by Mel Gibson to bring it to the big screen. The cinematography is absolutely amazing. The direction is outstanding and the acting is superb. The make up is wonderful. The movie is one of the most well made movies of all time from a technical point of view. That however is not what the movie is all about. The movie is about the sheer torture Christ went through for us as Christians. My cousin walked out of it saying that she never really understood what Christ went through for her until she saw this movie. If there is any ounce of Christianity in you will be moved by this movie. The audience members around me were in stunned silence and several were even crying. Once the movie ended however they applauded and remained in their seats unable to get up immediately to leave the theater. This is without a doubt one of the bloodiest but most realistic movies made for the big screen. It may be in fact the bloodiest, most realistic movie ever created. One person I talked to described it as more of an experience than a movie. I implore you to experience this movie, it is awe inspiring and amazing. There simply aren’t enough adjectives in the English language to describe this film it is truly a masterpiece. 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!
