The Baby Sitter's Club

The two reasons I like this movie are the names of two of the characters. One of them is Luka (my nephew’s name.) the other is Logan. (Wolverine’s real name.) They both have personal significance to me.

One of the things I do not like about this movie is the immaturity of it. I am willing to admit that I am WAY too old to be watching this film however. That being said, the film was fun. My father called films like these “Leave your brains at the box office!” movies. It did not take much thought to view this film.
I am also willing to admit that a 42-year-old bachelor is not the best audience for such a film. With all that out of the way, I will grade this film on what it is. It is simple, it is fun, and it does not take a lot of thought to enjoy. If you are simply looking to “Let go and relax.”  this movie is the perfect choice.

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!
