Mama Mia

The movie was not a disappointment. The name of the astonishing young beauty that adorned this movie’s poster and fulfilled my romantic dreams is Amanda Seyfried. She is everything I want in a girl. I’m sure I will never meet her in person, she doesn’t know I exist So I therefore must critique her character and this movie. Lets start off with her name. It is an alliteration I love alliterations. Sophie Sheridan is a pretty cool one at that. The music was amazing too. I had no problem (almost) singing along. I felt upbeat and stimulated when this story ended. I felt I knew Sophie for years and was in wedding. The secondary characters were all fun too. They were not background pieces, two dimensional or even remotely predictable. I wanted to know all of them better and felt as if the were actually people I know and cared for. That is the sign of an excellent or even a superlative writer. I was familiar with the feel and movement of the music. I am an ABBA fan, It was brisk, up beat, and entertaining. This movie is already nominated for two Golden Globes. They are Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actress for Meryl Streep. This move is like finding gold at the end of the rainbow or should I say finding paradise on a remote Greek Island. 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!
