Dazed and Confused

         This movie left me Dazed and Confused. I see parts of American Graffiti. Thrown in together with a touch of Stand By Me. Toss in a little That 70’s show and what we have here is a half decent flick. Sorry Lizzy for this one! 

          Three young and up and coming actors can be scene in this movie, like Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck as well as Milla Jovovich. All three of them small parts in this ensemble cast and all three of them played to near flawless perfection. Also scour the screen for Parker Posey. The only fault here is the movie is a little slow. At one hour and forty-three minutes I don’t see how that is possible. 

This movie was made in the 90’s took place in the 70’s but felt like a 50’s movie. They go to drive thru dinners, do ride arounds and smoke pot so perhaps it combined the best of the previous two decades. I wasn’t impressed. I doubt you will be either. Miss G. I hope you still my biggest fan after this disappointing grade.

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!
