Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban

I will try something new this time out. I will not compare this movie to the book. I will grade it on its on measure and I will attempt to remain unbiased by the superior novel. That being said I liked this movie. It was entertaining, fulfilling and told a complete story. 

           The acting was good and the screenplay was well written. I followed the movie along completely and even was told an entire story. There were no slow periods and the pacing was quite excellent. 
This is a movie you would like. It contains magic and wizardry. It tells tails of friendship and loyalty and even has a moral compass in it. In the past I have been a tough critic on the Harry Potter movies. In this case I am not. I actually enjoyed the film to the fullest and was not disappointed I the end. 

           This movie still does not get my highest mark however. I liked it I just did not love it. So therefore it only gets a B. See it for your self however and make your own grade. I may watch this movie again and even re-review it in the future. 

                                                                                                                                                                                            Grade B

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!
