Steel Magnolias

            This movie is truly a chick flick. I think all wedding movies are. This one stars 6 count-me 6 women on the cover of the DVD. They are all marquee names and all of them are wonderful. Sally Field though steels the spotlight. She was Golden Globe Nominated for her performance in the film.

            Julia Roberts wasn't too bad either. She was Oscar nominated in only her second major role (Mystic Pizza was 1st.)  Ms. Field was better however.  She was strong, dedicated, and amazing. The music was wonderful as well. It opened on the same note it started. (Or at least the same song.)

             This is the girl’s version of Ghostbusters. It was a comedy with many great lines and a complete storyline along the way to boot. While “I’d rather walk on my lips that criticize someone” this movie was not perfect.  It started off a little slow and was not remotely appealing to a lonely bachelor like myself. I realize I am not it’s intended demographic a few more guys in the cast other that Tom Skerritt and Dylan McDermott would not hurt either.

            Nevertheless I’d recommend this movie to my female friends. I’d keep silent about however  to my male friends.  Ignorant men would call me “gay” or think I am a little weird for watching this film. I still recommend it.

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!
