Donnie Darko

      We all have inner demons to fight. In this movie the titualr character’s inner demon is here to stay. He (the demon) is dark and morbid, as is this movie. The movie is wonderful though and will make you think long after the movie is over. 

         The supporting cast in this movie is excellent. It includes, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore and Jena Malone. Those names are tops in my book and are sure to please even the toughest crtic. 

          This movie should not be watched alone. As I said before it is dark and creepy. It is well made though and perfectly acted. I suggest seeing it in a group and disccusing it immediately. The film at one hour and fifty three minutes is not to long and moves quickly. This is a movie you will not soon forget. Rent it today and decide for yourself though. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                     Grade B+

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!
