Pageviews past week

This movie is surprisingly good. It is fun, well written and loaded with lots of humorous action. This is no surprise coming from Will Smith. He is aptly nicknamed “Mr. Independence Day”. Following in the tradition of such summer blockbusters like Independence Day and Men in Black, Smith always seems to have some original Sci -Fi movie format opening on or before the July Forth weekend. He always seems to make July even hotter with his creative scripts and interesting screenplays. This outing is no exception. The previews are just enough of a tease to get you to the box office. His metamorphic acting skills have you cheering him on to victory and his unforgettable flixs have you begging for more. Lets call a spade a spade. You walk out of the theater anticipating next summers entry. This time out is no exception. You walk away feeling satisfied. This is time well spent you tell your self this is some of my hard earned money justifiably wasted. The supporting cast is spectacular as well. Jason Bateman plays his part well and Charlize Theron does too. Let’s just hope Bateman doesn’t fall into the luer of the “Jude Law effect”. Which is of course of making too many movies in such a short amount of time that audiences get tired of looking at your face. This movie is far from perfect though. It is more like two movies in one. The first hour there seems to be one ending and the rest of the movie seems to be a completely different but somehow related film. They both leave you asking the same question. “I liked it but did I love it?” Perhaps, that’s what the writers had intended. If you are left asking question you are more likely see the movie again. The second time you’ll bring some friends so you can discuss it with someone over dinner after the movie. The name of the game is money. The best way to make more money is to get them (the audience) coming back for more. This time you’ll have friends to boot and their money is the same shade of green as yours. Green however is also the color of greed. Don’t make your selves green with envy. 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!
