Entertainment Weakly claims this is the best Twilight so far. That is not hard considering how bad the first two were. (See my reviews.) The thing about it is this movie was actually pretty good. The acting was better (not great mind, you better) and the pacing was good. The book was long and so was the movie. Both were entertaining though out and well worth the money. (I paid for neither.) 

When the movie ended I was over all satisfied. (For the first time I might add after Twilight film.) I told a few of my co-workers I enjoyed the film and plan on (dare I say?)  recommending it to Jill. This review will be posted as soon as my modem ifs fixed. (or I get a new one) 

In short this movie is worth the effort. It is two hours of solid entertainment and enjoyable until the end. Nora and Courtney will be pleased this outing is a good one.

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!
