Finally! A film that portrays a raven accurately and fairly (though the CG flight animation could use some work). Not to give too much away about the film, but this is the first movie where I’ve seen a raven portrayed as a “good guy”. In fact, the raven, Diaval (renamed from Diablo in the animated movie), is the most morally consistent character in the film.
I can’t say more without giving away too many spoilers, but if you like corvids, especially the crows, see this movie. I saw it on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised, not just by Diaval, but by the film as a whole.
This film gets The Corvid Blog’s endorsement!

See, I told you I was going to keep talking about Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series! Today I’m going to discuss three ways in which the series subverts the expectations of readers familiar with Christian lore. These tropes are the Mystical Pregnancy, the Death of the Son of God, and God Dying for Our Sins. I think these departures from Christian canon are ultimately more “human”—more relatable and thus, perhaps, more believable.
