All Quiet on the Western Front vs. Paths of Glory



In honor of 2014 being the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WWI, everyone should make a point of watching both of these powerful films - the two best WWI films ever.

Paths of Glory wins....

Paths of Glory for me also, a much stronger film.

All Quiet on the Western Front is great in some ways, but it really hasn't aged very well. Paths of Glory is on another level.

Paths of Glory benefits greatly from its reduced runtime and compact story about military bureaucracy.
