Oy. I've only seen a little bit of Chaplin's stuff, but I absolutely love these two. The guy certainly knew how to have fun. And as much fun as The Kid is, it doesn't quite measure up to City Lights. There's the stuff with the millionaire, the boxing bit, the ending...I could go on. Chaplin's a legend for a reason.
I have to say, I enjoyed The Kid much more than City Lights. I just feel The Kid's story moves along at a better pace and features an incredible performance from Jackie Coogan.
That was my initial reaction - that The Kid was the better movie. But City Lights is beautiful fun and it didn't take me long to decide that it was the better experience. The Kid is the brisker ride, sure, but the magic I found in City Lights was just *that* much better than the joy I felt while I was watching Chaplin and Coogan do their thing.
City Lights is much better than The Kid, not to say The Kid wasn't great though.
