The Blue Lagoon

Here is the plot in a nutshell. Two young kids are stranded on a tropical island where they learn about sex and life by just doing it. The bulk of the movie is the two of them alone doing what comes naturally to two young people alone with nothing to do but live life to the fullest. This movie is considered a cult classic. That usually means its pretty bad. This movie was actually good however. If you get past the fact that they are cousins this movie works. It is dramatic, entertaining and enjoyable to watch. There is plenty of nudity and a lot of sex but what do you expect under the circumstances. This was Brooke Shields’ break out role and it made her a hit overnight. She went from teen dream to every mans desire. She performed well in her first major leading role and won the heartstrings of guys everywhere. This movie was well done and not really the soft-core porn it was built up to be. (At least not on free On Demand) I went into this film expecting a lot of nudity. I got some. I am not disappointed however because the movie was realistic and well written. It was expertly portrayed and well acted to boot. While I am not looking to be stranded on a desert island any time soon I would not argue with it either. Grade B

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!
