I get it but at the same time, it's kinda silly to write off Chaplin because you prefer Keaton

That's like me not wanting to bother with "Laurel & Hardy" just because I happen to like "The Marx Brothers" more. I'd really be missing out if I did that- "Laurel & Hardy" consistently make me laugh out loud. Also, though Chaplin has a good sized filmography, there's really only a handful of films of his most folks would probably deem essential viewing so you wouldn't really be spending particularly large "fraction of your life" familiarizing yourself with him.
Yeah, been meaning to check out more Keaton because I was pretty impressed with "The General". Pretty sure "Sherlock Jr." is on my epic "to watch" film list.
