Disaster Movie

              Ok, I have to admit this was a pretty fun flick. Yes, the characters were mostly stolen from previous films. I am aware that the script was pieced together like a poorly assembled jigsaw puzzle thanks to Krazy Glue. I am also knowledgeable of that fact that this movie is supposed to be mundane pointless and contrived. Alas my friends that is the point of the movie. It is made to be entirely unoriginal, noncreative, and/or carbon copied. It was just 87 minutes of mindless entertainment. It filled that quota well.

The story line was mostly imaginative though. The non-stolen characters were worthy of admiration. I for the most part enjoyed my writing 375th movie review to date. (I also enjoyed watching the movie.) There were some flaws though. At points of the film I found myself to be nodding off. I’m not exactly sure how certain characters got into and out of particular predicaments, but hey it is a spoofwho cares. It ain't rocket science people. It is a pure and simple indulgence. My father called them leave your brains at the box office movies. I dub them pointless dribble. Much like the summer time smut read on the beaches by countless shore goers This film was my just desserts.

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!
