RANT & REVIEW
Title: The Raven

Movie can be seen: Netflix

Movie Synopsis: This movie is set in the mid 1800s and involves poet Edgar Allan Poe. A serial killer is on the loose and murdering people using Poe's descriptions from his published stories and poems. Poe teams up with Detective Fields, a Baltimore policeman to try and catch the killer by using his knowledge of the descriptions. Even though the stories are fictional, they start to become reality and the killer is a step ahead of them. Then it takes on a personal note as Poe's lover becomes a target. Will they stop the killer in time?

Release Date: 2012

Main Actors/Actresses:
John Cusack - Edgar Poe
Luke Evans - Detective Fields
Alice Eve - Emily Hamilton
Brendan Gleeson - Capt. Charles Hamilton
Kevin Mcnally - Maddux

Trivia : Ewan McGregor (as Edgar Allan Poe) and Jeremy Renner (as Inspector Emmet Fields) were originally attached to star, but dropped out.

Joaquin Phoenix was at one point in negotiations to star in the project together with Jeremy Renner. Phoenix would have played Poe to Renner's police inspector Fields, but the deal fell through when Renner decided to do Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

Noomi Rapace was offered the role of Emily.

Well Known Quotes: Edgar Allan Poe: Take this kiss upon the brow!/And, in parting from you now/ Thus much let me avow/You are not wrong, who deem/All that we see or seem/Is but a dream within a dream.

Maddux: 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.

Next Episode:
Guest: Bill Meeks
of Meeks Mixed Media and 2012’s Na-no-wri-mo winner. Wha!? All this and more on the next episode.

Next Rant & Review: The Producers  (2005) “A has-been Broadway producer and a timid accountant scheme to raise money for a play that's sure to be a flop so they can then pocket the extra cash.”
