The Raven
« on: November 09, 2012, 07:58:54 PM »
I was going to write a full blown review of this stinker, but the truth is that it would take much more thought and effort on my part to critique this film than any of the writers put into creating the script. Likely, the same can be said of John Cusack's performance as Edgar Allen Poe. I spent the first hour wondering whether anything was going to happen to make the film take off. I realized eventually that that wasn't going to happen. I would have saved myself a couple of hours of boredom had I read the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes before renting it. In a nutshell, Cusack was miscast. The script is garbage. The acting is mediocre. Don't bother.

Glad you watched it before I rented it. I was looking at it while I was at a redbox and decided not to.
My brain is full. Can I go home now
