Everyone’s Hero

In this the final movie co-directed by Christopher Reeve, we find a gem.  It is a story about an anthropomorphic baseball bat and ball, but most importantly it is a story about hope.  Speaking of hope I hope you like this movie, but more importantly I hope you like this review. I am writing it a 5 o’clock in the morning so be patient with me if it is less than perfect. 

Let’s get down to the review shall we. This movie was fun, fun loving and just plain entertaining. It wasn’t realistic, it wasn’t compelling and it wasn’t in live action. It was animated and full of zeal. This is a movie I believe I saw before but was worth viewing a second time around. I may watch it again tomorrow. 

The voice cast was amazing it contained William H Macy, Whoopi Goldberg, and even Joe Tore. The plot was simple and the script creative. The movie moved along quite well, The 90 minutes moved went by fast, even with the occasional commercial. It was creative, well written and a joy to watch. 

I enjoyed every minute of it. The supporting characters were well defined and the structure of the movie was well written. This is defiantly a movie to add to your collection and show your kids over and over again, even if they are not Yankees fans.

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!
