May movies

The highlight for May was watching a Charlie Chaplin double feature in Miami, Oklahoma at the Coleman Theatre. It's always a special treat to see something there with the wurlitzer as the only sound companion. It was the short Easy Street and Chaplin's first feature, The Kid. I saw a couple of films during May that I had high hopes for but they disappointed--Greenburg and Harry Brown. I was let down by both of them for different reasons--some short reviews are coming up that will likely talk about them slightly more.
