Marley and Me

This wonderful film starts off in the frigid northeastern territory of Michigan. The young family then travels to the famous peninsula of Florida.  The final setting is that of my hometown of Philadelphia PA. The story gets better at each local and is entertaining and funny throughout. 

The cast builds as the family expands. (Three young ones in the end.) The emotions climb the chart as well. Much like my old favorite TV show MASH this comedy can bring you to laughter to tears and back again with in a few scenes. This fantastic flick manages to tear at your heartstrings s as well as tickle your funny bone repeatedly for 2 hours exactly.

In the end I found myself lamenting. I was not mourning for the characters within the film I was instead bereft of emotions when the closing credits scrolled across the screen. I had gone through the gauntlet of feelings and tired myself out within the aforementioned time frame. 

This is a movie I would recommend highly to children of all ages, race, creed and religious background. While I was prepared for a depressing ending, I found my self-exiting the theater satisfied. The closing sentiment was realistic. I was not in tears but in comma because I felt the life sucked out of me when this majestic family film ended.

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!
