Over The Hedge

This movie is about a group of animals that wake up one day to find out everything they one had is gone. Their forest has been replaced with a new housing development and there is one crafty raccoon out to take advantage of them for he has one angry bear out for his blood. Are you confused yet? Well you should be.

      If you really want to know the plot of this movie then rent it. If you want to know if it was good or not then read this review. Since you’ve probably already peaked at my letter grade you know if I liked it or not. Oh well here is my review anyway. 

      This movie was cute. In fact it was funny. I liked it from beginning to end. It was enjoyable, well written and had a slew of popular voices adding to the mix. Those voices include, Bruce Willis, Steve Carell, and Wanda Sykes. The talent in this movie is coming out of the hedges. It is one endearing flick. It will keep you entertained and amused for one hour and twenty-three minutes. 

        Don’t let the fact that it is animated fool you this movie is good for the whole family. It is even good for bachelors like me who have no family. As a 36 year old adult I like it a lot. I my rent it again and even re review it in the future. Look out for more new reviews however because I just returned it to the mailbox. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                     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!
