A brand-new venture begins as the guys start conquering the 100 Greatest War Movies of All-Time (according to PASTE Magazine) by starting out with a rather important one – the 1930 adaptation of book-to-silver screen All Quiet on the Western Front. The guys talk about how such a vehemently anti-war film in 1930 must have been quite a sight to see and discuss the censorship of the film throughout the world, the modern filmmaking techniques that even Steven Spielberg must’ve taken note of for his films, the strategic use of older actors playing the main teenage characters, the fascinating story behind the dying french soldier in the trenches and much, much more.
Next week: Hacksaw Ridge.
