My awesome cousin called and asked me if I wanted to see the next Bond film? Of course I answered with a resounding “Yes”! I have always been a fan of the 007 franchise and Daniel Craig may be the best actor since Sean to portray the role. (Lazenby got a bad rap!) 

The film ran a little to long at 148 minutes and was slow at times as well as hard to follow. Overall however the film was good. It maintained the feel and charisma of the film series and had good eye candy for both sexes cast. 

There have been to many charater changes latley to remember whom plays what role but that did not take away from the feel of the film.  The film was good. I would recommend it to any moviegoer Bond fan or otherwise.

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!
