Movie Reviews

Boring
Teacher Teacher | 01/14/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am a teacher and bought this dvd to show to my students. I was amazed at how such an interesting life could have been made so dull. After we watched the dvd, I challenged my students to write a more interesting biography of Poe. "Well, that shouldn't be hard," was the immediate respond of one of my students."

"For a biography on such a prevalent, well known author I would have thought that the information included in the DVD would be correct. I am a pre-service teacher and showed this to my class, in the opening picture the dates listed below Poe's picture were 1804-1849. The video then went on to quote Poe's correct birth year in the opening scene, however I had to explain to my students that I had shown them a video with incorrect information. I had planned on buying all of the biography video's I would need from this series because they run 30 minutes which is absolutely perfect with a normal high school classroom's schedule. Needless to say, I won't be buying any more from this series."
