Criterion Corner: City Lights (1931)

criterion (1)

The Criterion Collection for years have been releasing the best versions of movies on DVD and Blue Ray.  They are hands down the ultimate praise a film can receive,and while many claim  the Oscar to be  the ultimate recognition.  Having the work and praise that goes into a Criterion edition.  Shows that it was put together by film lovers for film lovers.  This section is going to be dedicated to some of the great movies in this growing collection.


It’s been a while since I posted one of these reviews and for this one I thought I would do things a little different.    I decided to a video review of Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights.  Hope you enjoy.


I’ll be back with another installment of Random thoughts of a movie insomniac.  Not sure if I should do a video of that one or not.  Take care everybody.

About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcasts The Film Pasture, ScreenTrax, and soon Cinema Recall. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.
