Pageviews past week

         This review will most likely be my last of the year. It is a movie I found on Xfinity. Xfinity is Comcast’s library of movies on demand. This movie was free. It was a 1994 flick that was well cast and well written. It starred Jack Nicholson as the titular character and Michelle Pfeiffer as his love interest. Since we all know she is a fox does that make this really appropriate casting?

     The movie seemed slow at first but was tension building in the end. The tension eventually erupted and was quite an explosion at that. This movie was scary and a great flick to watch at 4 O’clock in the morning. The acting was top notch and the supporting cast stellar. It Included James Spader, Christopher Plummer and David Hyde Pierce. 

      This fun flick is definitely one I will recommend. It was scary, tension filled and a pleasure to watch. I liked it once it got going and was on the edge of my sea, biting my nails the entire 127 minutes.  You are sure to enjoy this movie too. Pick it up at your local video store or find it on Netflix.

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!
