The Blind Side

There are very few movies that make me cry. In fact, there is a list of the top ten movies on this blogspot that make made me cry. This movie made me cry with laughter. Unfortunately these moments came few and far between. The rest of the movie however was slow and predictable. 

The long and short of it this movie was seen entirely in the previews. You know what happens, you know who the players are and you know how it comes out. The only question is how does it t get there. Well that road is not too curvy. It is pretty much the straight and narrow path to common sense. 

There are surprises in many football games you never really know what will happen next. Thus cannot be said for this movie. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s not a great thing either. This movie was good it was not fantastic. I would not see it two days in a row. I do love the people that are willing to do so for a friend however.

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!
