An American Tail

Some movies are just born classics. I think this may be one of them. Less then a quarter century old, this movie left a song in my heart and a left me with a feeling of love and hope. I liked it from the first time I saw it and enjoyed it just as much today. An American Tail has four songs that are enjoyable to hear and fun to sing along with. Somewhere Out There is the most popular song in this movie and sung as a duet between brother and sister. It leaves me wanting to sing a song to my sister and looking for mice in my basement. The voice cast is amazing and includes Christopher Plummer, Madeline Kahn and Dom DeLuise. The rest of the cast is virtually unknown but good to go nonetheless. This movie is fun and fun loving. The storyline is original and the pacing consistent. This is definitely a good movie for the whole family. You will love it if you are young or simply young at heart like me. I will highly recommend this movie in the break room today and see it again in the future. 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!
