While my wife was out with her friends last night, I sat down to watch The Raven. I have had this movie for a while, but didn't get around to watching it until now. I am always on the lookout for movies like these, with a great setting (especially the 19th century) and moodly atmosphere.
John Cusack was good as Poe, but not really as I imaged Poe to be in real life. I always saw him as more of a depressed, antisocial sort of fellow. But Cusack does LOOK quite a bit like him, which was great!
I thought the plot was okay - it's all been done before. Copycat killer killing people like in his stories. The movie was what I expected it to be - a good historical romp with a good setting. If you like historical movies like this or are a Poe fan, check it out!
