Fried Green Tomatoes

This is a story about two generations of 4 four strong, undeterred, determined, amazing women. It truly is a chick flick. Well it’s my birthday present review of the day for my friend. a strong astonishing woman who always much like her mother shows attributes of beauty, kindness, and love in everything they do. I’m not surprised this is her favorite movie.

This however is my opinion of it. It is however well written, with plenty of character development. An excellent story line and even a few laughs thrown in between. My favorite scene is the one I remember from a movie critics show that I was watching when it came out back in 1991. How apropos that the scene takes place in the parking lot of a grocery store and that I’m now reviewing movies for a extraordinarily  fulfilling hobby. Bonus points: I was watching it my senior year on or around my birthday. 

This movie was nominated for two Oscars, Jessica Tandy was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and it was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Jessica Tandy was the oldest winner of an Oscar just three years prior in 1989 when she won the statuette for Driving Miss Daisy . Kathy bates surprised Oscar viewers when she won her first Oscar in her first major leading role for Misery in 1990. Is it ironic or just good timing that she won her gold a year after Tandy received hers and the Academy Awards just prior to this ones recognitions. I guess it was a good three years for these two astonishing woman. 

I am still a bachelor and despite turning 35 next month still kind of a curmudgeon as well. As a result this old hag an amateur review can only give this movie is a strong B+. My heart just wasn’t into it as much as yours. Sorry my friend. You are still my favorite cashier. (Kevin’s too)

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!
