Robert Pattinson talks about his new film, The Rover, with Dave O’Neil
This article should have been called, ‘How Dave O’Neil felt when Robert Pattinson sat near him in a bar’. All Dave could talk about was the presence of Rob’s body guard, which naturally should be bordering on intimidating, as his job title attests. Also how awkward he felt to be there in the first place, with reference to the other stars presence, and his inferiority. For an article that was meant to be about Rob’s up coming film ‘The Rover’, doesn’t get a slight mention until well into the fifth paragraph and minimalist at best, but rather concentrated on Rob’s prior movie -Twilight. Dave finishes off by insulting Rob’s acting chops – with Twilight again, and embarrassingly admits that Rob motions for the interview to end – with no responsibility or manners towards how an interview should be conducted.
‘Drought worst in living memory’
The best part about this article is that it is clear, and well researched with direct quotations from the president of the issue. The writer has also included the most important information in bullet point form as to make it easy to read for those with no agriculture background – but with a concern for their country’s welfare. The article finishes with contact information for anyone with questions.
Technical: Quiz 4
It took me a few attempts to get 100% on this weeks quiz. I found it interesting discovering my shortfalls in what I use in my writing, such as where ‘after’ is appropriate, and also writing clearly without the assumption that the reader will understand what I mean. I found this one very interesting.
