TCM's Summer of Stars 2011 review marathon # 1- Modern Times
This movie is one of the greatest comedies of all time when it comes to a silent film. The name of this movie is called Modern Times.
Here's the reasons why Modern Times was one of the best silent comedy film for this generation. Most people called this film Charlie Chaplin's best achievements and this movie is one the most popular movies of Charlie Chaplin's career. It is number 33 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Laughs when the American Film Institution resealed this as a movie list for all the hundred years of great movies ten years ago. It is number 81 on AFI's 100 years ... 100 movies list. It is also number 78 on AFI's 100 years... 100 movies (10th anniversary edition). Modern Times was "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress in 1989.
The acting in this film is perfect. You can tell that the chemistry The Little Tramp had on the main girl in the movie. The reason why the chemistry in the movie was working because Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard dated each other when four years ago before the movie has started.
The screenplay was brilliant because there were no words from this film from the actors. Here's a wonderful reason on why this film was made to be silent film instead of a talkative film. Charlie Chalpin feared that this movie will be ruined if this movie was a talkative film. The reason why Charlie Chaplin feared this is because he wanted the audience to feel the romance and mystery would be odd if this movie spoke its own lines. I agree because the film made a huge impact for the audience around the world by being silent, so the audience can get the whole story without the words.
Every single classic movie fan knows the plot to the story. I won't tell the plot because almost any one can tell this plot without figuring it out.
This is one the most iconic films of all time. Everybody should see this movie once in their own life because the movie inspire people by making the person a huge fan movies, even if the movie is really old or new. Get this movie for anyone who thinks classics are boring and are a waste of time. Maybe you can give this movie to your family, so you can enjoy this wonderful movie
Rating of movie: 10 - The filmmaker was proud to make the perfect movie for everyone to see and it will always be a classic for all generation to come
