This movie unfortunately was not Disney Pixar’s best film to date. It may even be their least desirable. That being said it was still incredibly entertaining and fun for the whole family. I will admit I am a nearly 35 yr old bachelor and I watched this movie alone. I was not shocked, nor was I astonished nay was I even floored. That being said however this animated feature was quite intriguing. 

The plot is quite simple. A TV show dog (or should I say puppy) named Bolt was born and bread on the sound set of a major television adventure show. It was his instinctive training to escape any cage, undue any capture and breakout of any confinement. Things run amok however when he puts the tutelage into real life, breaks out into the real word, and discovers that reality not Styrofoam packaging peanuts are his krprtonite. Not only is he powerless and homeless he is with out a Penny to his name. 

He befriends a hamster named Reno and a cat named mitten and three unlikely trio must elude danger and peril to find Bolts true “human” a young girl named Penny (Miley Cyrus) who is as lost and dreary without her best friend. A pal with four legs. 

The voice of the titular character dubbed Bolt is voiced quite eloquently by John Travolta and brought to life quite magically by Pixar animation. Susie Essman (Mittens) and Mark Walton( Rhino)  round out the list of virtually unknown character actors who are perfectly cast in this eclectic ensemble cast. 

While this move will not make my top ten list or even be visited again in theaters it is worth the price of admission to keep the young ones of any age entertained for 96 minutes. The smaller roles or lesser characters are prove in this feature film that are no small parts just small actors.

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!
