Star Trek (2009)

Upon my sophomore viewing of this movie I tried to see it through a new set of eyes. I tried to watch this movie from a rookie’s perspective. I attempted to suppose that I was not a Star Trek fan. I tried to imagine that I had never seen another Star Trek film before in my life. This review will be written from that point of view. This movie was adventurous. It told a good story and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire two hours and six minutes. This outing of the Star Trek series I assume was written from the perspective of getting new fans to become Trekies. It was given a handsome cast to get young women into theaters and hooked into the film series that so many guys have been addicted to for decades. It was a successful attempt. The aforementioned pretty boys all filled in their roles perfectly. The veterans of The Star Trek series like James Greenwood and Leonard Nimoy also played their roles well. The old and young melded perfectly. They gelled together so well it seems like they've been doing it for years. This movie (prequel) is sure to start a new craze of Star Trek films. It told a great story and hooked many new young both male and female viewers into the theaters and sure to watch this movie on DVD.

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!
