“The Raven” and “The Five-Year Engagement” Reviews

By Jordan Magrath

A couple weeks ago, I got the chance of catching two movies.  I completely forgot to upload the reviews, so here they are (courtesy of Film Equals).

The Raven

“Edgar Allen Poe is a fun character, in theory, to portray onscreen. “The Raven,” though, doesn’t focus on the character’s flaws. An uncomplicated look at one of the most controversial literary figures in history does the fictionalized thriller an injustice. I’m not against rewriting history (or in this case, writing it), but it must be done well to overcome preconceived notions.”

The Five-Year Engagement

“The supporting characters are not developed (there simply wasn’t time), but the film is just raunchy and witty enough to enjoy. Similarly, there are some more serious moments that will resonate, even if the plot seemed like a mess at times. Overall, it won’t reach the levels of other Apatow comedies, but it will still put some smiles on some faces.”
