Blind Horizon

            There are some movies out there that you have to see the entire film to understand. This is one of those movies. You may want to watch this movie twice or more just to get the entire picture. I just watched it once and I’m still confused. What initially attracted me to this movie was the cast. Neve Campbell and Val Kilmer were the two main stars. It also starred Sam Shepard and Amy Smart. These four can be a lethal combination. They were in this thriller type movie. 

      The plot of this film is to complicated to tell in just one page. As I said before you need to see the entire film to understand it. As I watched this film I could not decide if it was slow or just building up tension. I never turned it off or did I turn away but I did loose my focus a few times. So whether that is a good thing or a bad thing I can’t decide. I prefer a movie however that keeps my attention the entire time. This movie did not do that. 

     The ending was somewhat predictable and cliché. I was not socked by it nor did it make my jaw drop. I liked it however and could not imagine it happening any other way. This is definitely a movie that should be shared. You will need some one to discuss it with after al is said and done.

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!
