Prom Night (2008)

         Brittany Snow is perfectly cast in this movie. She's blonde, beautiful, she can't act her way out of a paper bag but she does however have great facial expressions. Richard Fenton is well chosen as the creepy stalker/ killer. He to can't act, doesn't have many lines of dialogue anyway and has great facial expressions. The rest of the cast is just there to look pretty. They are pointless, clique, unoriginal, totally contrived characters who have all been seen a million times before.

         This movie does however work. It's not realistic, it's not believable and it's not creative. It's not supposed to be it’s a teenage slasher movie. They are a dime a dozen, devoid of thought, and manically far fetched. That's what the audience expects. That's what we pay to see. Relax, get over it, it's a horror movie not a documentary or even an academy award caliber film it's not supposed to be plausible.

         I'm not sure if this is a remake or a film with the same name as the 1980 Jamie Lee Curtis film I saw and reviewed yesterday. I assuming it is the later. Either way I'm presuming the college rewritten paper rule. That rule is the best grade a re-written paper can get is a C. So therefore I'm giving it a C+.

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!
