I found it very interesting that Charlie Chaplin was highly involved socially. I didn't have much knowledge of him prior to your presentation, and the only thing I did know was the slap schtick silent humor. It was really cool hearing how he used his talent to take a shot at Hitler.
I thought it was interest how courageous Charlie Chaplin was. It takes a lot of guts to make a mockery of Adolf Hitler, during Hitler's rise to power.
Thought the videos you guys included were really entertaining and funny. They really showed off his personality. I think it is crazy he had the courage to mock Hitler!
I did not know much about Charlie Chaplin, but i found the clips of him to be humorous and I thought that he was a very couragous and inspiring performer. He voiced his opinion about politics, but did it in a funny way.
You guys had a very effective presentation. I don't know a lot about Charlie Chaplin but the ideas you showed us really painted him in a good light. I enjoyed the clip you showed from "The Great Dictator". I could see how those views (during that time) could cause cries of communism.
I loved the mini videos you guys showed us! they really showed me what charlie was like, and how his films were intertainment during the depression.
This presentation was terrific it showed the many sides of Charlie Chaplin and let me see that he was a very good and courageous actor. I wouldn't mind knowing a little bit more about how he got exiled.
I enjoyed the videos, especially the first one. They Showed what a funny character Charlie Chaplin was. And the fact that there can still be happiness in such a depressing time.
Charlie Chaplin was a very funny person. I remember watching a video of him in world history class my freshmen year in high school. One thing about his mustache is that he did not style it that way to mock Hitler, that was a common way that men styled their mustache in those times.
This presentation taught me a lot about Charlie Chaplin! The videos you guys selected did a great job of backing up what you guys had to say with a video. I think you guys did a good job on explaining the importance and also the iconic connection that Charlie had. Well done
I liked to see some of his projects he did like the short movie clips, but i would have loved to seen more background on him like how he came about to do these movies and comedy.
i think this was a good presentation. i liked how you guys had some great facts. but one thing that kinda made me less interested was the amount of video clips you guys had.. over other then that i thought it was great.
Funny presentation on some old comedy. liked the presentation a lot i think that you guys could have maybe takenn some info out and went a little slower but overall it was very nice.
I love the videos you guys had. I never heard of Charlie Chaplin before and I love the information you guys gave. He had a lot of good accomplishments that I was shocked to hear about like the silent films he had. Also, how much success he had without his parents being there to help. Great presentation. One of my favorite ones!
The presentation on Charlie Chaplin had some really big pros to me. The information given about what it was he did and how it affected people gave me a better insight on him. Learning about him makes so now I want to watch some of his movies so that is a plus. When it comes to the critique it was something that is neither one of your guys fault. That critique is the technology mishap that occurred which in my opinion did not take much away from the presentation as a whole. Great job.
