When Mars Attacks

How rare is this, a Tim Burton film without Johnny Depp? It had a star-studded cast instead. Including Jack Nicolson as two different characters. Natalie Portman and Glenn Close also star in this wonderful movie. 

This movie was dark and delicious it was fun for the whole family, if your family likes dark comedy that is. They  (the Martians) kill two thirds of the American government and destroy half the Earth. What more could you want in a movie than that?

       This film is just plain fun, It Is a spoof of the alien invasion movie and is just funny enough to make you laugh out loud. You are sure to rank this movie up amongst your favorite dark comedies. With the cast from Hell and the Insane writing to boot I will definitely see this film again.

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!
