03.05.06Netflix I finally get to see this. It's been on my list of movies to watch since... well, whenever AFI put out their top 100 thrillers (it joined The Freshman which had been on there since the top 100 comedies). Maybe I'm coming to Lloyd too late but I personally don't see it. Not as graceful as Chaplin, not as thrilling as Keaton... I guess the battle for the Silent-era greats never has Lloyd coming in ahead of those two but I dunno.. it seems like Safety Last is definitely a case of the last scene making the movie, I was just a bit let down in that it was the only scene that really had me engaged. An average Chaplin or Keaton movie would have like 3 or 4 scenes at that level. but in any case, I'm glad I finally saw this and can cross it off my list. yay for that.
