The Lego Batman Movie

     This movie (like anything) has its strengths and weaknesses. Let’s start off with the positive. This film was VERY CREATIVE. The characters (despite being “borrowed”) were all imaginative and well written. The script was well paced and the dialogue original.

I watched this movie with my older sister and seven-year-old nephew and we all enjoyed this movie thoroughly. The animation was well done and the script made all three of laugh-out loud a few times.    
 At 1 hour and 44 minutes this full-length cartoon ran too long and I was close to dozing off in my chair a few times. The other major flaw was that if you were not a fan of the 60’s TV series (like my sister and I were) you might not have understood a lot of the humor.

By the time the film ended I was more than ready to get out of the theater and see the light of day. (A.K.A get out of the movie theater.) I am at home now and writing my review. I am home now with a cat rubbing against my legs and ready to annoy my wonderful neighbors.

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!
