"First viewing - Aug. 4th Mixed reviews led me to lower my expectations on this one, which paid off in the long run. Cusack would never be my choice to play Poe (especially when Jeffrey Combs nailed the role on Masters of Horror) but he does a decent enough job. The rest of the cast is solid too, and the story is consistently entertaining I thought. The story idea itself reminded me of Theatre of Blood among others, so that wasn't too impressive, but I thought it made up for it with mood/atmosph"

2012- Best to Worst (69 movies items)

"I can understand why this movie got negative reviews from some people. The dark tone and gore in this movie will turn some people off, but I thought that suited the time period of this movie very well. John Cusack also did a great job as Edgar Allen Poe and I'm glad they picked him for the role instead of someone obvious like Johnny Depp. I'm glad I finally saw this movie after wanting to see it for a couple years."

"11.04.2014 Baltimore, 1849. A serial killer is murdering people the same way like in Edgar Allan Poe's stories. The police now needs the poet's help to stop the killer. Soon Poe and his girlfriend get into danger as well. Nice movie, I rate it with 7,5 points."

"Apart from there being no reason at all for this movie being titled "The Raven" aside from The Raven being Edgar Alan Poe's most well known work, this wasn't a bad movie. I enjoyed John Cusack's performance, as I almost always do in everything he's in. And I enjoyed the speculative fiction the narrative creates. It was fun to see the dynamic and partnership of Cusack's Poe and Luke Evans' Inspector characters trying to solve the murders. Evans is quite good also. The cinematography was approptia"

"January 26 "I believe that God gave him a spark of genius and quenched it in misery. But as far as something like this... The only thing he's ever killed is a bottle of brandy."

"12/28 Synopsis: When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's works, a young Baltimore detective joins forces with Poe to stop him from making his stories a reality. I love John Cusack; he's one of my favorite actors but this is a bit out of his element. This film had so many things going for it and it seemed to be one tailor-made for me personally, too. A fictionalization of the final days of one of my favorite poets, Poe, played by one of my favorite actors, "

" Oooooh. I just love movies like this. For instance: Period Thrillers. I'll watch a good murder mystery period piece any day. I didn't even mind that someone thought John Cusack was the right person to play Edgar Allan Poe. He did pretty well. The atmospheric suspense they wrap him in seemed to make it work out okay. Like 'From Hell', it's a piece of fiction, but, damn was it entertaining."

"21.7. John Cusack is misscast as drunken Poe trying to solve grizzly murders in Baltimore. Surprisingly interesting to the very end. Still the movie was mostly boring, repeative a and unsatisfying with it's plot twists. "

My Movie Diary 2013 (71 movies items)

"7.7 They've gotten away with revisionist tales of Sherlock Holmes and the Brothers Grimm, so why not the original master of the macabre Edgar Allan Poe? John Cusack portrays Poe with too much of his own mannerisms that I think is failure of creating character mystic. The movie itself is badly paced enough, its unworthy of Poe's greatness. "Here it is on Page 5...Cusack is terribly miscast as Poe...what the fuck!" "
