Catch That Kid

This entire movie can be summed up into one short word, simple. I mean what do you expect it's a kid's movie for crying out loud. The characters are simple, the plot is simple, the writing is simple and the acting is simple too. 

                        It is after all aimed at a different demographic than mine. I am a 34 yr old bachelor not a 13 yr old girl. I rented this movie because I was in the need for a comedy and action thriller rolled into one. The kid’s section was the best place to find such a selection so I grabbed this movie as one of my free Blockbuster online exchanges for the month. I wanted a movie with out a lot of complicated plot points. I was looking for something with out any character development whatsoever. That is exactly what I got. I enjoyed it to. 

This is the perfect summer movie. A movie to enjoy on a dog day afternoon like today. (I watched in the morning) It was exactly what I needed after my marathon discussions with a future law student. I need to put my brain at ease as they say and "veg" in front of the computer with a movie that required no thought at all what so ever. I could take a break on reading my new book on the origin of words and expressions and just relax. I found the antidote for my ailment. I enjoyed it too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                       Grade C+

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!
