Sleeping Beauty (1959)

This was the 50th anniversary celebration (ok so They’re a few months early) of Sleeping Beauty. It appropriately enough is Disney’s 16th animated classic or full length movie to hit theaters and the last movie old Walt himself was alive to see hit the big screen. I say it’s appropriate because the titular princess, Princess Aurora is set to prick her finger on her 16th birthday and as everybody knows only truelove’s kiss can awakened her from her blissful slumber. In order for Prince Phillip to do so however he must literally go through Hell and hot water to awaken his destined mate and betrothed love as well. Prince Phillip is with out a doubt the most normal name in this cast. The fairy Godmothers are named, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather the villainous is named Maleficent once again Disney’s attempt to increase our vocabularies from such a young age. It may not work on your words but this movie will undoubtedly work on your heart. It has touches of previous Disney gems such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) Fantasia (1940) and Cinderella (1950) you may even see signs of it in Disney’s next subsequent following film 101 Dalmatians (1961). They have been several movies that have donned the title (or subtle) of Sleeping Beauty This take was the original big screen version. While Disney didn’t exactly write it either. All their (Disney’s) movies were homages or adapted from preexisting books or other movies. Disney some how seemed to make it better. While it may have been an obscure fairy tail, folk lure, or children’s novel Disney made it a household name and brought it in to the hearts of millions of children for more that and many generations to come. I hated the last two Disney movies a reviewed I gave them both D’s his one makes up for both. My onscreen GPA of the top 19 movies you can read about on my blog is currently a 2.63 this should bring it up a notch. I give it an A. 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!
