The Karate Kid III

       It is often true in a movie trilogy that the third and final film in the series is the worst film in the series. If you do not believe me see The Godfather III or Return of the Jedi. This is another example of that rule.

               The second film was inspiring; it took place on foreign soil so therefore giving it a creative backdrop. The love song that went along with this film was unique. It is sung to the karate master, aka one man to another and not to the female love interest.
        This film was forced! The script is a great idea if it were the 2nd film in the series. See the Halloween or original Superman film series. It had contained none of the magic of the first two films and was painful to watch. My old drama teacher had a saying.
     “You can slap an audience but you can’t kick them.”
            This film kicked, punched and bludgeoned the audience to death with a hammer. That hammer was dull and shapeless. So to quote a line from another film.
    “It is dull you twit it will hurt more!”
     This film hurt a lot. In the film the antagonist wanted titular’s character’s knuckles to bleed. After watching this film my eyes were bleeding.

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!
