All Quiet on the Western Front (1930 version) - 6.5/10
Not sure what to think of this. Best thing about the movie was the characters. If it wasn't for them i'd probably forgetting this one very quickly.
It seems like it went downhill every time it tried to bombard me with it's messages.
There some stuff in here that no other war movies have really made me think about.
The school scene with the teacher trying to convince his students to go off to war was amusing, but almost insulting in a way.
It almost felt like they were trying to say that people who volunteer to go off to war for their country are brainwashed idiots.
I think if I was around during WWII I would have signed up. Of course I would have never known how terrible it would be of course..
There's a lot of memorable scenes in this one and I bet years from now it will get better with more viewings.
Strangely the actual battle scenes are not very good. Just lots of stuff blowing up.
I had a hard time getting through this since it's kind of slow and dull at times.
