He shows how even the people risking their lives do not even care much for war and have become so numb to the horrors of their situation. The main character Fred Collins makes a journey through a death field risking his life for water that was then spilled by his comrades. While Fred was on his journey into the battle zone, “He wondered why he did not feel some keen agony of fear” and this is because he has become numbed to all the dead surrounding him. Meanwhile instead of being present in their state of being under attack, and put effort into their side of the war some of the men discuss “..the greatest questions of the national existence.” This showcases how even the men whose lives are at risk could care less about what is actually happening in the war around them.
A masterpiece in its own right, it reflects a story that illustrates the brave and courageous acts of those who valiantly fought. The soldiers, regardless of which side they represent, pushed through their fear to become men of honor and valor. Many perished and those who survived are cursed to remember it. It reflects the sentiment that “Courage is more than charge; More than dying or suffering. The loss of love in silence or being gallant; It is temperament and, more, wisdom”
Present throughout the book is the theme of disillusionment. In the school, they’ve been told by their schoolmasters and parents that unless they join the war, they would remain cowards. They see propaganda after propaganda, all alluding towards the glory of battle and warfare. Out on the front, they realize that nothing was further from the truth. Their dreams of being heroes shattered, like when they compare themselves to the soldier on a poster in chapter 7.
By using these features effectively the director is able to portray a powerful message to the viewing audience. One of the most prominent symbols presented in in film is the symbol of ‘brotherhood.’ There is a sense of brotherhood shown on battlefields, within conversations and in particular, towards the end of the film. Towards the end of the film the group of soldiers find Private Ryan, however he refuses to go back with them to safety. Private Ryan states, 'these people are the only brothers I have left.'
The reason for violence in Saving Private Ryan is very clear. These men have been drafted into the second World War, and have no choice but to fight for their country. War, sadly, is apart of life. The violence displayed in the film is justified, because it is reality and is attempting to shed light on the harsh realities of war and the human race. When analyzing this film, the use of weapons and realism can be tied together.
Perry for example was already uncertain of his future and his knee injury already had him on edge. towards the end of the book after burning the corpses of his past comrades he lost all faith, and innocence. So the theme of the book is that war is devastating to person both mentally and
It also shows how the humans get what they want, but military force. Lastly it shows that the Na’vi (Native Africans) were treated very bad and thought to be not important so they didn't have a problem killing them. This movie is successful in it message about Imperialism because it shows all the key factors of imperialism. Imperialism was a not good thing that happened in the late 1800s,. The movie Avatar is a good example of what imperialism might have been
One Survivor Remembers Discussion Questions 1. The scenes and images that were most powerful to me were the first scene and the last scenes. The first scene showed the aftermath of the death marches, and all of the bodies of the women who lost their lives. The last scenes featured the women after the Nazis abandoned them and them on the march itself. These scenes were very powerful because they made me think about the horrors those women had to endure.
They see the Ground stained with blood and the carcasses left behind, Some are even burnt that nothing is left but their skeleton and some cloth that is stained on their rib cage and their cranium. Nothing left as the soldiers look onto no man's land but the horrific sight of what battle their was there and what battle their will be for their
In the story, the audience, is immersed in a typical Germans soldiers life when going to the front, waiting to go to the front, injured, and when on leave. The audience is shown the terrible experiences the soldiers experience and the emotions that they feel in many
Then him nearly avoiding death, bullets flying over his head, escaping IED explosions, and still coming out unscathed its like a movie star in an action scene. right when their is a lull in the story it always seems to pick back up with some hilarious shenanigans or some death defying stunt that they pull off against all odds. While it is entertaining, it also helps us understand what people in the military go through over seas. It gave me a greater understanding and appreciation for those who serve. I would personally recommend this to anyone.
The uniqueness that this movie provides is that we can actually see the aggressors and how they act when talking about the events that took place and it gives the aggressors a way to show the world how they felt and how their actions were affect their
The movie Platoon is exceptionally successful in pulling in an audience and creating a realistic piece of art that truly draws the audience into the Vietnam War. This may be for the reason that Oliver Stone spent an undying year in the heart of the Vietnam War, but also because the movie wasn’t just a story, but a riveting piece of moviemaking. The idea of creating movies is to change a person in some way, change the way they look at the world or how they perceive themselves. Movies similar to Platoon are meant to stay in the heart forever because of how strongly it connected with the audience. No sane person would ever want to get closer to the Vietnam War after watching Platoon.
The soldiers had been trained for an ideal war, and the one they were thrown into was far different. The once true ideals of the men were destroyed in the war, and eventually they like most men were killed. Men were like a number on the battlefield. People fought
