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

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

" Notes: Even though Charles Chaplin had been directing many movies as far back as 1914, I actually consider this movie his official directing debut since it was his first full length feature. Anyway, back then, when it was released it was obviously a tremendous critical and commercial success. Back in those days, Chaplin was already a big player thanks to the success of his marvelous short movies but with this new long format, he was clearly displaying his ambition to reach some new creative he"

"10.6. Olin oikeasti unohtanut miten uskomaton elämys tämä on. Jackie Cooganin rajusti heittelevä ura ansaitsisi kyllä tarkemmankin katsauksen. Mieshän päätyi myöhemmin kaikenlaisten camp-viritelmien jälkeen näyttelemään 60-luvun Addam's Familyyn Fester-setää."

"First viewing - March 28th I decided today to have a quarantine marathon and knock out some films from my list on Prime before I drop it again. I chose to start with a silent film right after breakfast when I was at my most alert. I actually did try to watch The Kid once before a while back but that was at night and it knocked me out. Watching it in the morning worked much better for me. There are some amusing moments and overall I appreciated the story. The opening title card promises laughs a"
