Great purchase for a lovely DVD set of Chaplin's collection. My family loves to watch them. Beautifully done, clear image, clear soundtrack, one of a kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice, if Somewhat Sloppy Boxed Set Dec 29 2004
Format:DVD
Warner Brothers' "The Chaplin Collection Volume 2" gathers together numerous films from the career of one of the few cinematic geniuses. The best of the films, "City Lights," is a masterpiece of comic timing, and also features a truly engrossing love story. "The Circus" and "The Kid" are also marvelously funny and touching classics. "The Chaplin Revue," which gathers several of his short films is more of a mixed bag, but the better shorts (like "Shoulder Arms" and "A Dog's Life") are still excellent. "A Woman of Paris" is an interesting dramatic experiment, and "Monsieur Verdoux," while uneven, certainly has its moments. The only truly terrible movie in the box is "A King in New York," but it is, at the very least, an interesting document of Chaplin's views on the America that disowned him.
Like in the previous bozed set, the films look very good. Mastered from near perfect source material, the only problem is the occasional fuzziness that occurs during scenes with much movement. The sound is adequate on the 'talkies,' and fine with the musical scores on the silent films.
The set is truly impressive with its huge quantity of extras. Each of the films contains an analytical documentary "Chaplin Today," with a different international filmmaker discussing each movie (Jim Jarmusch on "A King in New York" and Peter Lord on "City Lights," for example). The discs also include introductions by David Robinson, a Chaplin biographer, which are packed with information.

4.0 out of 5 stars The good, the bad and the ugly July 4 2004
Format:DVD
The Good: I'm not a complete Chaplin aficionado but I believe if you pick up this DVD set and the first Chaplin DVD collection, you'll have all his films with the exception of his early Essanay and Mutual films and his 1967 film "A Countess From Hong Kong" which Chaplin directed and features a brief cameo. Besides the films themselves, this set contains photo galleries, trailers, brief documentaries, deleted scenes, some brief but fascinating introductions by Chaplin biographer David Robinson, and other related materials - all of them presented in pristine, and in most cases stunning, condition by restoration artists MK2.
The Bad: Chaplin re-released many of these films in the '60s and '70s and the Chaplin family obviously considers these as the final word since they've included them here. I'm assuming this is a good thing because it would allow MK2 to work from newer prints rather than the old film masters from the '20s and '30s. Unfortunately, Chaplin also added new music in many cases and made some minor scene deletions. I haven't seen the earliest versions to be able to compare musical scores. And the scores used here worked fine for me. Still, it would've been nice if they included the original film instead of tacking the brief deleted scenes on separately. This was done perfectly with "The Gold Rush" set in the first Chaplin DVD collection which includes the original film and the reworked modern version with Chaplin's narration. There are several spelling mistakes on the packaging of "The Kid" - the title has dropped out somewhere along the line in its production - an error which should've been caught, considering all the care they've put into this package.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem!! May 7 2004
Format:DVD
Marvellous compilation, but you already knew that reading the other reviews. Just a couple of issues; I agree with A viewer from Culver City, CA United States, that the shorts should have been restored to the same standard as the others, it immediately strikes you if you are watching on a big-screen front projection. And, just like the GOLD RUSH in the first set, it would have been nice to have the original versions of THE KID in Disc-2. I fervently hope that they bring out a complete and restored collection of the shorts very soon--the ones that are available in the market today aren't of the same standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Own April 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Hardly anything to quibble with here. Chaplin is a genius to us adults, and hilarious to the ten-year old in my household. The major films are beautifully restored. I love watching them.
Two quibbles: why weren't the excellent shorts given the same restoration quality?
Also -- the two disks in my copy of "The Chaplin Revue" are mislabled. #1 is actually #2 and vice versa. I returned the set twice to try and correct this problem, but each time it was the same. Asleep at the wheel, Amazon. I decided to just live with it, which bothers me.
Still I love watching these films and you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection! April 15 2004
By Sai
Format:DVD
This collection is WONDERFUL, astonishing, and crips and new like but still keeping its old feeling. It was given to the right company, they mastered it extremely well with great features and a nice boxset as well. I suggest this collection to anyone who likes a great laugh.
