Pageviews past week

       This movie is about determination, loyalty, and love. It is about one woman who refused to believe what everybody else told her to believe. It is about one very dedicated lady and the strength of will she had to continue her parents (mostly her father’s) legacy. The horse may take top billing but the soul of the story is about its owner whom the above paragraph described so well. 

          This movie was in many ways your typical Disney underdog sports film. You know from history or even the previews that the horse is going to win. You are still on the edge of your seat and biting your nails the entire time. This movie at one hour and fifty-six minutes is a little long but keeps its pace up quite well nonetheless. It is well written, perfectly well acted, and well scored to boot. It is a fun movie to watch and will keep you guessing until the end. 

          The thing I loved the most about this film is the cast. No one steels the focus and keep your eyes off the story. Your focus should be on the story too. It is well written and easy to follow. The spot light award however goes to the eldest daughter. She sings her way in to your heart while protesting that war. She is pretty and talented and you will want to see her in more upcoming films. 

            As I walked out of the theater I herd one little girl say it was “the best movie ever” I would not go that far, but I did like it. The scenery was breathtaking and beautiful as well was the titular character. (Who just happens to be a horse.) The movie makes sense however and it just fun to intake. Take the family to see it for they will love almost as much as that little girl 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!
