Wonderful Chaplin adventure!

Charlie Chaplin's name has grown synonymous with classic comedy. Throughout the early 1900s, the extraordinary silent movie comedian featured in short films ranging from 10-30 minutes. These years denoted the birth of one of the most recognisable movie characters in existence: Chaplin's Little Tramp. There is little doubt that Chaplin knew how to put bums on seats. He also knew how to move his aud... read more

Recently I've really been in a Chaplin mood, and this is my fourth from him. The first two I saw were both masterpieces, 9/10, then I watched his supposed magnum opus City Lights, which, although I loved, rated it only an 8 (even though I think I should watch it again). Every single venture I've made from Chaplin thus far has been funny, poignant, accessible, and just fun, and The Kid is no except... read more

Perhaps it’s because I saw this one after watching his lionized classics like City Lights, Modern Times, The Gold Rush, and The Great Dictator that I found The Kid to be more of a beautiful introductory for what was to come than a film that packs the same amount of weight and heft that the others contain. Maybe it’s also because it didn’t make me feel as joyous as I was expecting from a Chap... read more

The Tramp cares for an abandoned child, but events put that relationship in jeopardy.

Bml93's Film Diary for 2014: March & April (32 movies items)

"@ Blu-ray Charles Chaplin manages the extremely difficult task of making slapstick not only funny, but beautiful and heartwarming, as well. He tells a very simple story, but even the simplest of things can turn out to be something extraordinary if given enough care and love. Chaplin does that with this story. And it remains just as strong almost 100 years after it was made. The only thing I don't like about it is that whole dream sequence. It felt unnecessary. 8/10 "

Review of The Kid

“Note: For this review, I watched the original 1921 version of The Kid (as opposed to the 1971 cut, which includes a musical score composed by Charlie Chaplin).

Silent films have always fascinated and impressed me for as long as I can remember. Modern cinema has the advantage of words and improved cinematography, effects, etc., that makes it easier and easier to draw the audience into the world that the director envisions. In the case of Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, it has no audible words or flashy effects. It doesn't even have music. For 68 minutes, the film does not make a single sound. And yet, it's ultimately more engaging and entertaining than the majority of films released today. It is a testament to the acting, the directing, and even the cinematography; all doing thei” read more

Every single venture I've made from Chaplin thus far has been funny, poignant, accessible, and just fun, and The Kid is no exception. It's not quite as ambitious as the other Chaplin films I've seen, probably it's biggest flaw, but nonetheless it's a funny, heartfelt, and beautiful silent comedy. Chaplin's portrayal of The Tramp wasn't actually as good as some of the other jobs he's done, but it was still great and the character was as lovable as always.

I thought that the best thing about the film was how great t” read more
