Archimonde0_0;4559225rumor has it though that he is very Anti-War.
Yes that must be very hard for an american to retrace, I know. But we all have pity for you ;)
The 1970's remake isn't worth it, watch the original version from 1930.
Archimonde0_0;4559225Yes! thats a great movie! The book and movie were written and produced by a German soldier who was in the trench's himself, rumor has it though that he is very Anti-War.
Thats another interesting part with the movie/book, for being such a large budget film for its time, it adheres to none of the socially acceptable norms regarding soldiers of the time and could've severely crippled morale among all soldiers for later wars (WW2) who thought they were fighting for honor, dignity, and all that BS. The movie showed the war in its raw form, something that politicians and the media of the time were trying to hide. Well the message of the movie couldn't have spread to far, because you didn't have large scale protests like Vietnam in WW2. If more movies like All Quiet on the Western Front were made in the thirties, a war such as WW2 would've been impossible due to lack of public support, from both sides, Axis and Allied.
EDIT: I just watched Paths of Glory. Maybe I didn't quite get it, but I didn't like it to much. Or, it was a great movie, but didn't live up to its hype. Or maybe I misunderstood the hype, I was expecting more action perhaps. It turned into a court martial and blackmail movie, which was misleading in the beginning.
I cant believe none has mentioned "A bridge too far". =o

Flippy Warbear;4558776 I wouldnt go forward without A Bridge Too Far either, because that is a quite good film aswell, not nearly as good as The Longest Day but its still a nice movie.[/quote]

Not a bad movie, though in regards of historical accuracy it's a bit... they took some liberties so to say (The most obvious one: Germans comming from the south pushing towards the North through Arnhem while the entire German goalw was to move from Arnhem down south to Nijmegen and stop the armoured allied advance on the ground... :rofl: ).

The OP said "other then the obvious ones" :P

What?...are you really going to turn this into another "Bash the American Citizen" thread...really? I'm against wars, and for you to say that as an American I only want war, is total ignorance.
Well I only read what I see. Since you write "though its anti-war" I must conclude that "anti war" is something lame in your eyes and therefore conclude that you support war in every way. Nothing more or less.
I don't care what you read, your idiot comment was out of place in this thread, if you wanna start a topic about political jokes, or how America sucks, do it, don't come to a topic where we are all having a respectable discussion and post your own one sided view of things.
If I was to make a comment about your countries people, which was very similar to the one you posted, there would be 4, or 5, people all over my back.
Point is your comment was out of place, not funny, and untrue.
hey dude, I suppose you got some major troubles. Calm down, we all love each other ;). I just wanted to convince you that the title "anti-war" isn't a bad critic for a film, like you think. Well, maybe I shouldn't have said "americans", but it was too enticingly in that moment. ;)
