the raven

So I went as saw The Raven yesterday, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course I had high expectations because; let's be serious, when you take the works of Edgar Allan Poe and put it in a movie you better do a good job. I loved the dialogue and the whole take on the possibilities of what his last days were. I think I enjoyed it more than other people but it was definitely my kind of movie. Not to mention John Cusack as Poe, who would have thought?! But he does a great job.
My favorite story was saved for last. I wish I could talk about it but I think it would give something away. So if you haven't seen it, go see it!!
On another note. I feel like writers from the past are quickly being forgotten by todays society. Which actually makes me kind of sad. Some of the BEST writers and stories come from the the 1800's-early 1900's. The vocabulary and the ability to describe in so much detail. sigh* Of course if you are not used to the dialogue you have to work up to it but it is so worth the work. NO the movies are not the same.
