Lillo and Stitch

         How odd, An animated Disney movie with PG rating. It has happened before but very rarely. ( See Dinosaur and The Black Cauldron) Many critics instantly maligned it upon its release. While I’ll admit it wasn’t the greatest Disney flick I've ever seen it doesn’t deserve to be instantly critiqued either.

         It is actually quite funny. There are some recognizable voices within it’s cast  like Ving Raimes, (Pulp Fiction) David Ogden Steirs (MASH [TV]) and stand up comedian Kevin Mc Donald. Even Stitch has his own voice by the end of this film.

         I mean how cool is a alien who sings Elvis. I grant you he is a four armed menace built strictly for devastation and destruction on a planet where the mosquito is worshiped as a god. Perhaps that is why their priorities are out of whack. All and all however it is a fun film.

Grade B+

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!
