    That is a very astute observation brother bear. I always found the character a little dry and thought his capacity for humor greatly outweighed his ability for drama.

    Well, maybe it's just me, then.
    I love humor, especially dry humor.
    Also, I'm a big softie... but I'm more of a classicist than some. I really was very moved in my way by so many scenes... and though it may not be true drama, many of his films really were effective in message.
    It's cool, tho, you guys don't have to share my opinion.
    I'm still pretty comfortable.

    While we're on it, though, what do you think of Red Skelton? (No, wait, don't tell me. One star slighted is plenty.)

    I don't think "slighting" is the word... I absolutely admire Chaplin for everything he did, for his contribution to the art of cinema in many respects, and for being the father of tragicomedy in cinema. I only said that his art did't do anything for me personally, as a spectator (well, I think I could concede Limelight... it touched me... but far from making even my top 100 anyway), except The Great Dictator which I like for obvious reasons.

    Can't believe we missed Mortimer Brewster and his aunts.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    I'm just rather crushed that Max Fischer was eliminated.

    Well, that was directed more towards Sam, actually. It does surprise me a bit, though, that you appear to be saying that the tramp's not visceral enough for you, Jean, when it seems generally that you are with the common arguement that today's films are too hooked on being graphic.

    Incidently, I love Red Skelton. I love Chaplin's work as well, I simply think that the character is a little more one dimensional than people want to believe he is.

    Ladies and Germs, we are now entering the Octa-Finals!

    As with the BMOAT, I will take the 1st place from each group (nominee with most votes) and pit it against the 2nd place from the subsequent group - 1st place from Group A will take on 2nd place from Group B, and 2nd place from Group A will take on the 1st place from Group B - all the way down the list. I have highlighted in blue all of the nominees that made it to the next round, as well as a number indicating whether they were first or second place within their respective group.

    I'm planning on making an excel spreadsheet which will map out the 'playoff' phase to give everyone a better idea of how everything will play out.

    I'll post the first 3 brackets later today! Good luck with the voting!
