Morning Glory

This mediocre film is just simply that mediocre. It has a great cast and a fairy creative plot line. It just simply fails to add up to its potential. Don’t get me wrong Rachel Mc Adams is cute as a button and Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford play their roles to perfection it just is not the film you want to rent tonight. The film never gets off the ground and the writing never seems to gel. This film is fun at times but for the most part it just fails to muster. The Story line is simple. Rachel Mc Adams plays a young executive who is fired from a high-ranking morning news show and forced to take a position in this low ranking one in New York. The first thing she does when she comes on board is fire the obnoxious head anchor. She then must replace him with some one better. Harrison Ford plays a veteran newscaster who is forced out of retirement to take the position. Since he believes the position is below him he enters the part with skepticism and loathing. The setting is in place and story must move on from there. The problem is though the story never does move on from there. It seems to be still the entire film up until the predictable Hollywood type-ending witch was about as predictable as the Philadelphia Eagles losing in the playoffs. The audience knows it is going to happen we just have to sit in agony and wait till it does. The characters are all washed up and annoying. None of them has a single shred of originality. They are all recycled pieces from an old piece of junk. You know what I mean some thing that should have been thrown in the junkyard years ago. This movie seems like it was taken out of a junkyard. Maybe it should be returned to one. See it for yourself and decide whether or not it is any good. I warn you though; standing to close to the movie may erase your brain. Grade F

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!
