The Negotiator

When this film came out it was instantly maligned by a ton of negative criticism. The critics all pointed out that the trailer gave away the surprise element of the film. Well guess what true believers it DID NOT! It instead gave audiences a reason to see the film. It was surprise element that made this film unique. The other thing that made this film unglue was the TWO count them TWO marquee names. Kevne Spacey has made a name for himself as the “man to hate” he has even palyed Lex Luthor on the big screen. Women may call consider him an American Beauty and regular theater goers may think of him as a Horrible Boss, but there is no deniting his sex appeal as well as acting abilities. Oh by the way if you really did pay attention the trailer he is a GOOD GUY in this film. If that does not get you to the box office (or Red Box) I do not know what will. I highly recommend this film. As some one whao has had written over 1,000 movie reviews. I would rank this amoungst the best. See it right away. It is worth your time and effort. 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!
