She’s The Man

       Soccer (football) is the most popular sport on Earth. Shakespeare is on of the most popular play writes ever born. Combine the two together and you get this movie. It is a modern day remake of Twelfth Night with a teenage kick.

      Ok, lets get down to the nitty gritty. This movie was funny at scenes but mostly disappointing. It took me three viewing over three day to get through it and that is not a good thing. This 105-minute film should have flown by quickly. Instead it crawled past me like a hermit crab. 

         This film much like a typical Shakespeare play had plenty of love triangles. It was however not confusing or even difficult to figure out. The writing was half hazzrd and not to complex. The endig was predictible and the movie just plain disapoining. 

          This is not a movie I will see again nor tell any one about in the future. I will keep my lips shut and remain silent. I usually like Amanda Bynes but not so in this film. The acting was good. It is just the script that disappointed. Do not rent this film nor put it in your Netflix queue it is simply not worth the time or money. 

                                                                                                                                                                                        Grade C-

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!
