Jingle All The Way

Here I am writing a review for a Christmas movie in August. The high temperature last week was 93. I can’t walk down the block without sweating and the short walk I am about to make to get to church will probably exaust me. Nevertheless here is my review. The first thing I noticed about the film was the cast. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the marquee name here and Sinbad get 2nd billing. It also stars Phil Hartman, Martian Mull and James Blush. While none of these stars ever really made it big in Hollywood this film is worth seeing. I am the first to admit that this is a family film and even the actors whom make up the family being Rita Wilson and Jake Lloyd are not major figureheads in Hollywood. Rita Wilson is bet know for being marred to Tom Hanks and Jake Lloyd is mostly maligned for being cast as a young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. They are ALL great actors and NOONE should be maligned like they are but that is a topic of another article. Let’s get on with this review now shall we. THIS FILM WORKS! It has a lot of potential. We have the father who is to busy with his job to pay attention to or even notice his own son. WE have the IMPOSSIBLE to get beloved toy that “Every child wants!” and “People kill to get their hands on.” Like I said before this film is good. The writers’ manger to remain original while sticking to the old clichés. This film is not intended to have great and deap meaning. This film is not meant to be dissected like a frog in Science class. This film is meant to be an escape. It can be enjoyed in August, March, or December. It was good on the big screen in 1996 and was enjoyed on the small screen in 2014. Go out and view it today. I DO NOT CARE if it is summer, perhaps this winter film can cool you down. Grade J for Jingle

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!
