Diamonds are Forever

This has always been my favorite Bond (film) of all time. It contains the best Blofeld, (Charles Gray) the best killers Mr. Kidd and Mr.Wint and most importantly the final (official) appearance of the best Bond, Mr. Sean Connery Today I was not so much enthralled in to the adventures of 007. Today I was bored somewhat and could afford to take my eyes off the prize. (or the movie) today I got only 3 hours sleep. Perhaps I’ll come back later and review this movie again in a few months. The plot is fairly simple diamonds are being smuggled out of South Africa and James Bond is out for vengeance. Blofeld did just after all kill his wife in cold blood in the previous film. (On her Majesty’s Secret Service) The acting was top notch and the pace was even. This movie moved quickly for a two-hour flick. The plot was creative and original packed lots of punch. It is still my favorite Bond. I may go back and see Goldfinger one more time again however. 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!
