All Quiet on the Western Front film adaptation was a nice (but rather campy from a 2014 perspective I guess) film that brought the message of the book to the silver screen. All Quiet follows Paul Bäumer a German soldier through one of the most devastating wars in human history. This film uses its narrative to describe to the audience what the Great War looked and felt like, a cluster of chaos and death. All Quiet states a powerful political message about nationalism and its pitfalls. I feel that the argument made by All Quiet is that nationalism can be detrimental to a country.
The Assassin - Short Story He just lay there, on the wet ground, for hours. He looked as though he was just casually waiting and that it was perfectly normal to lie on the ground. After a few hours it started to rain heavily, though this did not discourage him in the slightest as he just carried on lying there, looking comfortable and content. Once in a while a car would drive along the lonely road and the people inside would stare in his direction but the long grass hid him. He had a serious frown and thin, pursed lips with a protruding jaw. Whilst lying there in the rain he chain-smoked a cigarette, carefully putting the buts in his pocket to ensure no evidence was left, and watched the view As the car went past the gate, he noticed a long deep scratch along the left side of it. Right on queue, the car drove over the nail
"I'm afraid so Mrs. Hudson. He hasn't stirred from that spot ever since he got a text from Lestrade, vaguely outlining his worst fear. Which of course for Sherlock is like displaying it in bold."
"We could have been brothers, but they never want us to know that" (Mann, 1979). The 1979 television film All Quiet on the Western Front depicts the story of Paul Bauman, a German soldier fresh out of high school who decided to enlist for World War I. Throughout the course of the film, viewers see the general events of World War I from the eyes of the “losers”, the Germans. Through the use of a German perspective, the portrayal of the horrors of war, and showing the difference of opinions back home and on the front, All Quiet on the Western Front advocates for a more realistic approach for the dramatization of war and learning an unbiased history.
"Damn it!" I cursed under my breath for the umpteenth time. Once again, while balancing on a rolling ladder I had so clumsily managed to drop a book on the thankfully plush carpet of the used book store. Unfortunately this time I drop it on a patron. But what the
It was a pleasure talking to you last night! Below is a recap of our phone conversation, please review and advise me with any further comments you may have:
The novel “All Quiet on the Western Front” has many images of war and truly demonstrates the horrors the soldiers experienced. The author constantly provides surreal scenes that make the reader stop and think about how terrible the war was. One image that lingers in my mind is from the beginning when the young recruit lost his helmet and when Paul tried to help him and put it back on his head the boy hugged him. War is happening all around them and Paul shows deep sympathy towards the young boy. The reader cannot help but feel for the young boy and picture him just wanting the comfort of another. Another surreal image that lingers in my mind is when Paul is on leave and loses all feeling and power when he sees his sister and home. He starts
All Quiet on the Western Front was never written to be like the movies we watch today. When people go to see a movie about war, they typically expect watch a story jam packed with action from start to finish. All Quiet on the Western Front, also has this kind of battle from beginning to end, but was never intended to tell the common sci-fi adventure of which it could be associated to. It is made to speak against the terrible conditions which men had to face in world war won. The movie shows us, that even though there were so many casualties in the aftermath of World War One, there are some things in the world worse than death. The opening of the movie tells how the film is not an accusation, a confession, or an adventure, and the
“Agent Carrasco I don’t think-...” Alba started speaking when the Chief interrupted him ”Done you got it.” “Chief, I’m not sure that is a good idea.” “Thank you Chief, we very much appreciate that. I’ll go call my team and let you know when we will start.” I walk out of the room to go call Moretti.
War is a conflict between two nations, states, or different groups. During this conflict many people will fall victim to death; kids will be traumatized, mothers will see their children leave and never comeback. All of these tragic scenarios will occur because leaders of nations or groups have a feeling of aversion between each other. Soldiers train together and gain friendships with each other, later to witness their allies die in combat. In. "All Quiet..." When returning home soldiers may experience PTSD, even leaving war they'll be forever tortured by war.
“Thank you for having me. It’s a real pleasure to meet you folks. I’ve been following your progress here, it’s all very impressive,” Edward said.
America’s Silent Killer All around the world food unites families and friends, but the food that was known then is not the same as today’s food. Food has changed for the worst. Diet choices hide a very nasty truth, which is unhealthy eating habits and those habits can potentially lead to obesity or some type of disease which can be fatal. In the 1970’s obesity was not a well known term as it is in today’s society. People's weight has increased drastically over the years that now doctors have had to develop new terms in order to distinguish and identify them. Another thing that has taken a turn for the worst is the mentality this generation has nowadays. People are turning more towards fast and easy service and accessibility as opposed to quality
The film, All Quiet on the Western Front, provides a visual representation of the WW1 battle field and the high stress environment soldiers were evoked in, from the start of the war. The renovated movie and the original book publishing, was originated to revolve around German soldier, Paul Baumer. Trench Warfare and the gruesome reality that became the battlefield of World War 1, was depicted through the journey of Paul and his closest comrades. The movie touched upon the actual history of the war but mainly focused on the lifestyle and obstacles the soldiers experienced. The withdrawal from civilian life and the effect the War had on the soldiers became an evident problem as the movie progressed. The film was not “defeatist” towards the war and the manner in which the warfare was held but rather showed the gruesome truth of the fight, using a soldier's journey as a prime testament of how the war affected humans.

I see what you mean but you know sometimes you got a let people explain themselves. If you’re just jumping the gun you’re being very naïve. I was stopping, seeing, and addressing the problem can always help. I also don’t fall into a trap of always taking there side. It’s like a double edge sword, you can either believe it or not.
