The Rock

THis is a purely fun totally pumped up movie that will enthrall you for the entire length of the movie. You will have fun for two hours while enjoying this flick. Ed Harris is a decorated Marine Veteran who after the death of his wife is fed up with the government bureaucracy. Tired of following the rules and not getting anywhere he uses his power to take a a entire platoon of marines into Alcatraz and takes the tourists hostage using them as bartering chips to get his way. Sean Connery is the only prisoner to escape from Alcatraz. He is therefore is bought in to help the Government break back in to this seemingly impenetrable fortress and to take out Ed Harris and his Marine troops. Nichalas Cage is A chemical “Super Freak” who is employed by the FBI and forced to take the tr .ip to Alcatraz in order to disarm the chemical weapons Harris is using to threaten the city. The characters are well portrayed and very well acted in this blow em up shoot em up movie that is totally for guys. The demolition crew destroys everything in site is . In one fantastic chase sequence through the streets of San Francisco. The before mentioned chase sequence involves a Hummer and A Firarre and both are totally destroyed by the end. The women in this movie are superficial and pretty much only written into it to give the male characters more depth. This is a movie that will most probably not be enjoyed by many women. The male characters are all driven by testosterone and a super fiscal male ego. Wives and girlfriends should simply leave their men alone when watching this flick. 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!
