    Absolutely loved this movie. Totally not what I thought a silent movie would be like.

    I don't really like rewatching films I don't love.
    I just can't get into them nearly as much as the first time.

    I felt a tad insulted that the lecturers chose films expecting none of us to have seen them before. I mean, crikey, my airways are film, okay?!

    Keaton is a pimp of physical comedy. He owns the role, and the physicality is incredible. It's full of great set pieces, and it's a fun time.

    However, the 100mins really…

    This did not do a whole lot for me. It is the archetypal comedy in a lot of ways, but because it did so much of what would come later before anyone else, I found it hard to appreciate the origin for many comedic tropes/gags. Subsequent films have expanded on what Keaton did and have since done it better. Definitely able to trace the origins for so many later comedic elements to this film, however, which is important in and of itself.

    In a world where Tom Cruise is considered batshit for his involvement in stuntwork with the Mission: Impossible franchise, I think he's a fucking pussy compared to Buster Keaton's insanity.

    Not the most magical, funny, or charming Keaton has been, but The General is far and away him at his most masterful. One of the best action movies out there.

    Incredibly funny and entertaining. It isn't much else, but does it need to be?

    Giancarlo, I know stagecraft is your business, but I couldn't help but see so much of you in Keaton in this film.

    You always had a zaniness when we were in school together that I appreciated; and given the opportunity, there's a movie in my head that you're perfect for.

    I just haven't found it yet.

    (The General was excellent, by the way.)

    My favorite bit was the saluting gag at the end. The movie was worth it just for that.

    You're a pretentious nerd if you found this movie entertaining in any way.

    The General is probably one of the first films that give us glimpses of what would become the blockbuster genre. There is adventure, there is romance, there is a bunch of train chases and jokes; but there wasn't anything that I could really connect to emotionally. Of course it is a great achievement for its time but even with that in mind I still wasn't too impressed by it. Sherlock Jr. wins.
