Final Destination 2

This sequel suffered from the opposite things most suffer from it was to complicated. The plot tried to tie together both movies instead of just making an original movie of its own. I wouldn’t have seen this movie if I didn’t like the original so much. So, I guess the name drew me in and pushed me away at the same time. The death scenes were creative and did manage to scare the crap out of you. There were to many characters to keep track of in this one and they weren’t all teenagers like the first time. The key to making a movie appealable to teens is to put teens in the movie this movie didn’t do that. This was a teen horror flick without the teens. The suspense was adequate to keep you guess but not enough to keep you thirsty for more. I found myself unattached to these characters begging for the m to die s o I could be sufficiently scared. I’m still waiting. The scariest part of thei evenving was the drive home on s fog covered 352. It reminded me of the moviwe I felt like I was in a fog for most of it. Grade C+

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!
