Bad Company

       I know I know the first thing you are thinking as you read this review is. I’ve never heard of this movie. Well guess what. Never have I, until today that is. The thing that appealed the most to me is the two main stars. Anthony Hopkins and Chris Rock. I’ll watch the free Xfinity movie, I said to myself. The only thing I have to lose is 116 minutes. 

         Well guess what they were spectacular. Playing off each other perfectly as partners in not so crime. The chemistry was perfect. Well as perfect as it can be for two male co –stars. The rest of the cast was good too. The movie was well paced and kept you on the edge of your seat. I was guessing the entire time. 

       I know what your thinking. What the hell is this movie about? It is a CIA flick and that is all you need to know. It is complex and compelling and will have you on the edge of your seat for nearly two hours. Chris Rock essentially plays and American/black James Bond. 

          That is quite a combination you say. Well so is the pairing of Rock and Hopkins. They both work in this movie and so does the plot. This movie is fun at times and nail biting at others. I’d recommend this movie proudly and see it as soon as I could on your TV screen.

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!
