    "This is the only Chaplin movie I've seen, but its hilarious. Its one of the only comedies I can think of that has to do with Hitler, aside from maybe that Brad Pitt one. Highly recommend. "

    "The argument can be made that "Modern Times" is the best Charlie Chaplin movie ever - created just during the switch from silent movies to "talkies", the movie almost makes fun of itself as a dying breed. Everything is done in a lovely and entertaining way, leaving the viewer wondering what we miss today in films compared to the magic of Charlie Chaplin in "Modern Times"."

    "The Gold Rush is one of Chaplin's more popular movies though it's not among the best. The plot is entirely comic and suffers from underdevelopment. Nevertheless, it's fine entertainment that everyone should see."

    "Limelight has over a hundred reviews and averages a 4.5/5 star rating. This is one of the highest ratings I have seen and suggests that the movie is worth seeing. Many people are convinced that it is the best Chaplin film and, given the ratings, it is hard to argue."

    "The Kid is a silent film masterpiece. It's not Chaplin's best film by a long shot - which says a lot about the quality of his resume. Nevertheless, it shows Chaplin's versatility as an artist not just in performance but in crafting a movie that could appeal to high and low brow audiences alike."

    "Monsieur Verdoux is Chaplin's modern masterpiece. Though not his first talkie, it's undoubtedly his best. Often overshadowed by The Great Dictator or Modern Times, Monsieur Verdoux offers a bruising critique of capitalism and moral politics unlike any other Chaplin film. Stepping out of the confines of his most famous character, the Tramp, Chaplin sets one of film's first anti-heroes loose in a cruel and uncaring world."

    "This is one of the most iconic Charlie Chaplin movies, and one that most people think of when they picture his stunts (aside from "Modern Times", of course). The setting of a circus really gives Charlie a chance to perform some unique stunts, and of course the humor is top notch!"
