Silent Perfection

8 years, 7 months ago at Jul 4 19:30

If you've never been exposed to a Chaplin film, or a silent black & white film in general, this would be the one to watch first. It will make you fall in love with that golden era of film making. Either this, or Chaplin's 'The Kid'.

All actors in this film I believe are better than most of the big shots today, because without clever scripts and speeches, these actors had to rely e... read more

Review of City Lights

One of my biggest movie-related regrets that I hadn't seen a single Charlie Chaplin film. The director and actor has received massive acclaim, and is still considered today to be one of the world's greatest directors. And yet, I had not seen any of his films. In fact, I had seen relatively few silent films at all. However, if Chaplin's other work is even nearly as good as City Lights, I will not h... read more

Chaplin hits this one out of the park!

City Lights could be the best Charlie Chaplin film to date; this poignant, entertaining film is both funny and heart-warming. This film also marks one of Chaplin's last silent movies. It was a bold move to release a silent film when the day and age of silent movies had dissolved, but Chaplin's trademark character just wouldn't be as appealing with a voice.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: December (57 movies items)

"December 17 "Be careful how you're driving." "Am I driving?" Out of all the Charlie Chaplin films I have seen so far, this one is easily the best. Not only was the comedy in this movie hilarious, but it also has a timeless love story that's just as effective as it was over 80 years ago and the ending to this movie is beyond perfect. This is a classic silent film that still holds up exceptionally well to this day. "
