The Wolverine

The X-men is the best selling comic book series in the world. Wolverine in the only X-man to get his own series. As a result Wolverine is also the only character to get his own film or film(s). There have been five X-Man films; this is the second film in the Wolverine series. Hugh Jackman has played the titular character in ALL these films. If the screenplay is any indication this will also be the LAST of the Wolverine spinoffs, and perhaps the last film in the X-Men franchise all together. This film was filled with tired clich├ęs; plot holes, and cheesy dialogue. The acting is subpar and at times annoying. Hugh Jackman was Oscar nominated for his part in Les Miserable’s. (2012) He also was also up for a Golden Globe for his performance in Kate and Leopard (2001). He later won a Golden Globe in for in Les Miserable’s. He was the only person in this pathetic film to show ANY acting skills at all what so ever. I line my bathroom wall with old comic book pages to give me something to read while I use the facilities. The screenplay deserves to be flushed down the toilet. After watching this film for 126 minutes I desire nothing more to do then throw myself in front of an Amtrak train to lessen the pain of seeing this movie. If I have a feeling four broken limbs, a ruptured spleen, and fractured skull would be less painful than having to see this film again. Grade F

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!
