Bicentennial Man

It is everybody’s desire to fit in. Everyone wants to find someone just like them to spend the rest of their lives with. In this movie a robot desires to fit in. Andrew Martin is a standard household robot at first. In the course of 131 minutes however he desires to be so much more. 

        That in summary is the plot of this movie. It is based on a short story by Isaac Asimov. The screenplay expands it to a full-length movie. It is wonderfully done and well acted. Robin Williams plays the titular character and is in almost every scene. The supporting cast is good to and needs to be seen to be appreciated. 

          I don’t fall in love with movie everyday. I did so however with this film. It was the perfect length and told a wonderful story. The acting as I said before was top notch and the whole film just appealed to my senses. This is a movie you will not soon forget and may desire to see again. I suggest you take as much in as possible because there are few gems left like this on the planet. 

           I found this movie once again on Xfinity. It was free of charge and worth money if I had paid for it. I may watch it again in the future and get more out of it the second time. See it today however and decide for yourself whether it is a hit or a miss. I obviously believe it to be a hit and will give it my highest praise.

                                                                                                                                                                                                Grade A+

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!
