The Counselor

       This mind-numbing film was horrible from the start. The plot was never clear, the point of the film if any is never well portrayed, and the acting is pathetic.

         One would think that with such notable actors like Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardam, and Brad Pitt the acting would be better. Alas, this film is nothing more than 100 minutes of mind numbing boredom with the last ten minutes of mild excitement.

         In this PG -13 film the female co-stars include Selma Perez. They had dressed only in towels (in one scene) in order to get any audience appeal or attention.
         This scene should be offensive ALL women and is definitely being maligned by this male critic! The entire film seems to be poorly put together, horrible written and insulting at best.

         If you still desire (after reading this review) to see this film I’d suggest playing in traffic. This movie will bring you the same amount of pain. This movie is mediocre at best. Spending Thanksgiving with the in-laws may be more tolerable than watching this movie.

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!
