    The Raven (2012)

    "The Raven" 10 Scale Rating: 4.0 (Bad) ...

    The Good: The costumes and scenery were amazing. A great supporting cast for the most part. Near the end of the film, they re-create Poe's death and as someone who has always been fascinated by that moment in history, I was impressed with that scene. How we get there is silly, but the scene itself is well done.

    The Bad: He puts forth the effort, but Cussack never really makes a good Poe. The story is silly and very VERY slow. It was difficult to really keep watching it with the poor pacing. A very straight forward film, which shouldn't be the case given the tone and source material.
