Pageviews past week

This movie should have been more appropriately called Postcards From the Edge. If you’ve seen the movie you will know what I mean. If you have not seen it then I suggest renting it. It is good for a few laughs and a little action. My uncle told me this was more of a comedy than an action flick. Well I disagree. This movie is totally an action flick. I will admit it has it comic relief the plot however spells action.

       The plot is fairly simple to figure out and easy to follow. I was expecting a more complicated plot for a movie getting so much hype. I’ll take simple any day however. The dialogue scenes are boring but necessary. You need a plot my friends what would a good movie be without one.

         The cast is top notch and the movie well acted. Bruce Wills leads the way of some older actors including Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren. Keep your eyes peeled for Earnest Borgnine and Richard Dreyfuss.

       Over all I liked this movie. I just cannot give my highest grade. I was disappointed after all the hype it received and wanted too see more. I still say to rent this movie and decide for yourself.  It is worthy of your time and worth the dollar you will pay for it at the Redbox.

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!
