The Mighty Macs

This movie is about the Immacualata woman’s' basketball team and their coach who in 1971 set the record books ablaze' when she came on board a very staunchly and conservative all woman’s Catholic college and gave them not only their first "real" basketball team but also helped pave the road to what is now known forty years later as a juggernaut in not only basketball but many woman’s sports. The pioneer coach is the main star of the inspiring story is named Cathy Rush. She is the matriarchal leader of this groundbreaking team. It was a true rush to see her story unfold on the big screen. Ok, lets get down to brass tactics and give this film the style of criticism it deserves my blogspot and it's more recent reviews are famous for. While not all my reviews are cold and canonical. It is the type of reviews however I must admit I am most proud of. This film however was inspirational and very little fault can be found within it. That being said it seemed a little clichĂ© at times and down right unoriginal in others. Take the " gutter practice scene" it felt "borrowed” to me. I am not sure from where but I think I have seen it before. The movie was fun however and the over all feeling of it was sound and uplifting. The real titular characters' in this flick is the girls whom make up thus said team. These young ladies in question and thus said struggling athletes that make or made the 1971 team as immortal and dare I say immaculate as it was. This film is memorable in other ways. First it is a smash hit with the family and Christian critics and not so with the secular variety. This is a family film about a Catholic college. So those thus family style reviews may be the most important ones. This critic however is a student at a very Liberal Christian school and it is my review you are reading. Therefore I will compromise and give it a "B", for the reasons I listed above and a few others will not go into in this review. See it yourself however and you are decide for yourself. 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!
