Pageviews past week

          This movie should be titled ET for Epic Terrificness. It is fun, tear worthy, and overwhelmingly heartwarming. (or should I say heart lighting.) It is one you will never forget and my overall pic for my 500th movie review. (So it is really 504 sue me I had a hernia.) I loved this movie the first time I saw it and it gets better every supplement viewing. 

      John Williams won an Oscar for scoring this movie. The amazing thing about it is he did it without ever seeing the final film. Steven Spielberg went back and adapted the movie to fit the score. How is that for awesome praise?

         This is definitely a movie to take the kids to see there is no cursing, very little violence, and it is only rated PG for the amount of action involved in making the final piece.  The final masterpiece that is. 

        If this movie doesn’t bring a tear of joy to your eyes then there is definitely something wrong with you. This film while only 28 years old is a classic and is timeless in it creativity and over all appeal to an audience of all ages. 

                                                                                                                                                                                            Grade A+

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!
