Ashdoc's movie review---The raven

Post by ashdoc on Wed May 23, 2012 12:51 am

Its the mid nineteenth century and Edgar Allan Poe rules Baltimore city . Actually he rules the literary world there . Or so he thinks.....But when he barges in a bar there asking for a free drink because he's the literary king no one recognises him there . Instead he gets a punch and a kick out of the bar . But maybe thats because its just a bar filled with drunken louts.....

So how does the literary king eke out a living ?? He does that by writing grisly stories of even more grislier murders full of sharp weapons and bloody deaths .

......And to eke out a living he has to keep on churning out the stories week after week to be published in the newspapers which the greedy public reads to satisfy their bloodsoaked fantasies .

But his literary talents earn him one other thing---love of a beautiful woman......a woman who dares to go against her father who threatens to shoot Edgar dead if he continues the romance . That further enthuses the blonde blueeyed beautiful woman who proposes marriage---a marriage she feels will be in the perfect setting for Edgar ; after all nothing could be more perfect than the marriage of the writer of grisly murder stories occurring under the threat of death at the hands of her father......

But unfortunately there are other less delicate admirers of Edgar Allan Poe's work ; and one of them is a demented psychopath who decides to murder people in the exact way as written in Edgar's books---by cutting into two the bodies of his victims with the help of a saw for example......
......And Edgar's work continues to give this psycho inspiration for different kinds of more grisly murders......all of which attracts the attention of the police who decide to enlist Edgar's help in solving the murders as they are based on his writings anyway......

But the demented psycho has a newer and bolder plan---to make the threat of death on Edgar's wedding even more real by kidnapping his wife and making him churn out grislier stories on pain of his wife's death by keeping her locked up......

So does the psycho's plan succeed ?? Or does Edgar succeed in finding out who he is ?? And to what lengths and sacrifices Edgar is willing to go to save his wife ?? Will he trade his own life for hers ??
Go and watch the movie for that......

I found it a decent watch......
