(54) Movie List

Apparently, they did a Charlie Chaplin movie marathon on TCM and 3 of those were what I DVR'd since they were on the IMDB list. We watched "City Lights" (1931) tonight and it was not at all what I expected from a silent movie. Apparently, it was in the midst of sound movies so Chaplin was still grasping to the old method when he made this one, but because he created more of a soundtrack rather than your typical piano and framed dialogue boxes, it wasn't your normal silent movie. I'm horrible at writing movie reviews so I'll just say that while it was clearly slapstick, I went into it expecting less clever slapstick and ended up enjoying it so much more. Chris and I were laughing through most of it and the story was cute so it was definitely a feel good movie and much needed. :)
