Pete's Dragon (2016)

         First of all I’d like to come out to say that original film was my father and me’s “favorite” film. I also want to point out that 1977 (the year this film came out) is had a lot (two words) good films come out in it. That being said my review of this film may be just a bit biased.

         I will attempt to get past that and review this film anyway. I enjoyed it. The live action animation was well done and the story line enjoyable as well. This movie is a great film to take the entire family too and should please the entire clan.

         The film was well cast and the storyline well told. I saw this flick with my sister and nephew. I recommend you take your family to see it too.

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!
