               This film was a first class ticket to heaven. I have said before it seems Denzel Washington always (it seems) needs to be black. See Malcolm X, Remember the Titans and even his Glory days. My only African American editor agreed with me. “It works!” she proclaimed! He portrays our race well. 

Now with this film added to his queue, he could even be called the Mother Teresa of cinema. If you have not seen this film. Then see it you won’t be offended. I highly recommend seeing this film more than once. 
           The spotlight award in this film goes to John Goodman. He portrays the next-door neighbor / best friend character that provides Whip Whitaker (Washington) the liquor, cocaine combination that is a a key charter in screenpaly. Goodman has come a long way since his sitcom daze and in this film should earn him an Oscar. (He wont be nominated!) 

             This flight film takes off from the beginning and never descends. Don Cheadle is excellent in this film as well. He portrays the top-notch lawyer  given to Whitaker from the start. As the story pans out it is clear that he is no stranger the world of drugs and drug abuse. 

           You should be no stranger to the theater. This film is worth the ticket price. It may be hard too find however it ha been out six weeks and some new 3D Hobbit forming  prequel just hit the marketplace.

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!
