Pageviews past week

        I’d just like to start off this review by saying; I’ve seen this movie before. It starred Glenn Close and Michael Douglas. It came out in 1987. It had a really catchy yet approite two word title. What was it called? What was the name;  Oh yea, Fatal Attraction. It was great then 21 years ago it just isn’t now (seven years ago in 2002).

         This movie is eerily familiar. The only difference is the characters are all younger and still in high school. Also in the above mentioned film the acting was top notch and of excellent caliber. In this pathetic waste of one hour and 24 minutes the performances were as appropriately adequate as the lack luster script required them to be. In a word or two; they sucked.

         I’ll have to say that this daily 35 year old critic was not impressed. While I must admit the were some scenes of mystery and seduction there was nothing to really captivate my interest for the entire duration of this film. While the score showed some hints of creativity, it was not original . Furthermore it is the job of the composer to help increase or intensify the mood not tell you how you should be feeling first place. The music should enhance your already decided upon emotion not  flat out drag you around like an worn out rag doll.

         This movie was obviously aimed at a teenage audience hence the lack of nudity and excess swearing. As a result it received a PG -13 rating. It missed it’s mark however because it failed to take into the factor that  teenagers today have brains and intelligence.

I will sum up by saying now appropriate it is  that the director’s name is John Poison, because this pathetic waste of a screenplay deserves to be flushed in the  toilet not to emotion it was pure poison.

Grade F

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!
