Charlie Chaplin

Hi everybody, just couldn't help looking for some videos when I heard that some of you had never seen Charlie Chaplin in a movie. This is one of his most famous scenes, playing with the globe.




And from the same movie, The Great Dictator, his famous speech in favour of democracy.

AN ACTION-PACKED FILM

It is true, detective Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson are back!
The most famous character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is performed this time by the badly-behaved and versatile American actor Robert Downey.
One of the best British actors at the moment, the well-known Jude Law, is in the role of Dr. Watson - Holmes´ inseparable colleague.
Holmes and Watson embark on an extraordinary adventure with plenty of incredible situations, trying to find out about a new chemical explosive.
The film is a new version of the most traditional British detective story. The director Guy Ritchie managed to combine the English style with an action-packed Hollywood movie.
Undoubtedly it is one of the best films of 2010.
You can´t miss it!
