American History X

            This is the first time in 448 reviews where the font is appropriate. It is writen in American Typewriter. (sized 12) This movie is a word fantastic. This movie in another word was disturbing, violent and graphic. Okay that is four words but whose counting.

            This film boasts two of my favorite young actors in that of Edward Furlong (T2) and Edward Norton (Fight Club) the two Eds together were special. No sugar coating it here though. This movie was riveting from start to finish.

Both actors get a part in narrating certain parts and the movie hoppped back and forth nicley from past to preset well. The past of course was gritty in black and white and The preset was all that more colorful in color.

The entire movie was sobering and gritty. This film may be a little violent and offensive for the young ones and the language won’t help you out there at all. This film definitely earns its R rating. 

The film needs it though. Telling such a tale would be impossible if you did it any other way. From the opening shot to the closing one the term shot takes on a double meeting. See it to today with someone you love. Just make sure that person is old enough to handle its rather adult content.

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!
