Angels and Demons (DVD)

Well I’m going to start this review off by saying that I’m not going to compare this film to the book. The book was different if you want to see my review of the book it is only the next review down the page. If you want my review of the movie then keep on reading. 

This movie was entertaining. It had some great camera shots and some pretty convincing acting. The main characters were well drawn out and very convincing. I was intrigued from the opening shot till the closing scene. 

Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor lead the way with this wonderful ensemble cast. The pacing is consistent and the direction by now veteran film director Ron Howard was fantastic. The plot was believable and the screenplay well written.

This is a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The storyline is very creative and well adapted from the book. Angels and Demons is a lot of fun to watch. It is even more fun to intake.

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!
