Three sentence movie reviews: City Lights

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

This is a classic movie in a way that means I watched it, struggled to stay awake and spent a lot of time contemplating that weird period of film where movies could have sound, but chose to keep going in the silent film direction.*  Charlie Chaplin did his good Charlie Chaplin things, which probably felt fun and fresh at the time, but which does not feel fun and fresh to me because I have seen clips and imitations of Mr. Chaplin all of my life. Overall, a not-torturous movie to have watched, and another classic under my belt.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

*One plus: the score right there, with the film, so one doesn’t run into the random classical music added to The General, which I experienced earlier this month.

Here are the scratch-offs for this film and two others I’ve already seen:

    Oh look! I just realized that the scratch offs do have a release date. Good thing.

    Now I think you need to watch the Robert Downey Jr. movie, Chaplin after seeing this. Could be interesting to take in that now old bio-pic. I loved it when it came out and wonder if it stands up to the test of time.

      I’ve been meaning to watch that movie for years. For a long time the library only had a VHS copy that someone had lost. But I see now that there’s a 15th Anniversary edition and I’ve put it on hold. We shall see how it holds up. But Moira Kelly is in it! Bonus right there.
