A friend gave me this video bragging about the acting. When I looked at the DVD sleeve I saw it was nominated for  four acting Oscars (one for the screenplay as well. ) I had to go to work that night so I waited with baited breath till the next morning when I watch 90% of my movies from Netflix. I must say I was very disappointed.

It was not the acting ability of the actors in doubt. They were of Oscar caliber. Whomever nonmined the screenplay however deserves to be committed. For this movie moved like a turtle on Ambien. It never really lived up to the potential it spent so much time building up to. 
I mean I’m not really bereft of emotion or devoid of thought for that matter. What am is unconscious. For this Oscar nominated screenplay was about much fun as watching the Phillies lose to the Dodgers. (They didn’t by the way.) The Dodgers were in fact shut out of game one five to nothing. Well that is exactly what I felt; nothing. I could care less weather a harsh and rigid nun (Glenn Close) dubbed the ‘Dragon’   by the DVD menu succeeded in her vow to take down the seeming heatless priest of her parish. 

               I had no desire to discover what happened  to the aforementioned priest she seemed Hell-bent on taking down (Phillip Seymor Hoffman) Hell I’m not even sure why I waited till this movie end to eject it from my computer. Not only did I do that I carried it in the rain from whence it came (the local library) I was overwhelmingly disappointed. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                  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!
