Race to Witch Mountain

           This movie was fun. It was very light on set up time and very heavy on action. That is what I liked about it. The action was fantastic and the plot just simply fun. It was a typical Disney live action film. 

       Dwayne ‘The Rock’ The acting was adaquate for the content of the film. It wasn’t acadaey award caliber nor should it be it was a kids film. Over all it was funny, fun loving, and simply enjoyable. I was cativated for the entire length of the film.

      At 99 minutes it was just long enough to be enjoyed and have fun doing so. The govermant oficlas were evil and pompous; the kids were talented and daring. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was an excellent casting choice he played the roll with just enough seriousness to make it work. This movie is something kids and families will enjoy. Kevin and Grace you will enjoy it too. I sure did. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                        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!
