Saddest film? - May 20th 2014, 01:03 AM

This thread has been labeled as containing spoilers. The contents of this thread might therefore describe important elements of a storyline that could ruin it for you. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

In light of the fact I've just watched a film that left me with tears rolling down my cheeks, I thought I'd get you to share the saddest film moments with everyone else. I can't really say mine, because I cry at everything ever, but everyone has that film that leaves them wishing they could go back and stop it half way through just so it ends differently, right?

So what are yours?

(P.S I've marked it as a spoiler just in case. )

The first time I cried in a movie was on Lilo and Stitch when they were taking Stitch away. (I know it's very stupid)


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Finding Nemo. I was about 11 or 12 years old when we 'had' to watch it in school. It was the single most saddest thing I'd ever watched in my entire life. Until I'd watched Pokemon the Movie when Ash dies and Pikachu attempts to revive him but can't.

I hate death scenes!

Bridge to Terabithia should come with a "you'll need ice cream after this" warning.

Re: Saddest film? - May 20th 2014, 05:10 AM

I can think of three really depressing movies off the top of my head. The Fountain is my favorite film, not only for the gorgeous imagery and soundtrack, but also because of the themes present in the film. The story revolves around a neurosurgeon who is trying to find a cure for his wife's brain tumor. His wife is a writer, and she starts writing a book that deals with the subject of death, since she has accepted her fate and wants her husband to spend more time with her instead of at work.
Spoiler:
And then they finally find a cure, but it ends up being too late and she dies. There's a really heartbreaking scene where she's flatlining and her husband tries to revive her even though the doctors say it's too late. It then cuts to a scene of him with the Tree of Life, and he starts screaming "Don't die!" as it shrivels up. Very heavy imagery.

Then the one I watched recently was Melancholia. The first half of the film was rather pointless, but it picks up in the second half. It's about this family who is staying together when a massive planet starts heading toward Earth. The scientists say it will pass Earth, but everyone starts fearing that it will collide instead and kill everyone.
Spoiler:
Initially, it does pass and everyone thinks they're safe. But then a second glance in the telescope reveals that it is really looping back around and it will indeed collide. The husband then suicides in the barn, and the wife tries really hard not to have a breakdown and scare her son with the news of the collision. Her sister, on the other hand, accepts her fate and remains calm. In the end, they decide to go out and build a "fortress" with some sticks in an attempt to keep the kid calm. The three sit under it holding hands as the planet hits and kills everyone. It was an amazing but saddening look into the different ways people cope with death.

And then a much older film is Willard. The main character has no friends, a job he hates that doesn't pay well, and he lives with his mother, who hates him and continually tells him how disappointed she is with him. He then makes friends with one of the rats in his basement, and things start looking up for him as he also meets a new girl at work who is interested in him.
Spoiler:
One of the evil rats in his basement doesn't like how Willard's rat gets preferential treatment, so the evil rat ends up killing the mother. This causes Willard to lose the rights to his house, and it also means his boss can fire him now. Willard becomes suicidal, but ends up not going through with it because his rat tells him not to do it. His boss ends up killing the rat very violently, causing Willard to seek revenge and presumably die in the process. As a rat owner who's been in similar situations, I empathize with him very deeply. The whole movie is just one big downer.

I cry at so many things, though honestly, the movies I cry for the most are the ones with animals in it. Benji, Spirit: the stallion of the cimarron, come home Lassie. The one I cried MOST for, however:

Hachiko: A Dog' Story. From into the first 15 minutes right up to the end.

Yes. Absolutely. The book is like 5 times more painful.

Bridge to Terabithia was traumatising.
I think the film I've cried the most at was The Book Theif. That was really bad. I've also cried at My Sister's Keeper, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (come on, that flashback scene with Snape was heartbreaking!) and Marley and Me.

There are probably more, it doesn't take much to make me cry.

I could name a list here. I think I cry a lot when I watch movies. :P
Bridge to Terabithia, Finding Nemo, I even cried when I saw Home Alone (I mean poor kid, he is alone)
Movies which really made me sad are The Attic:The hiding of Anne Frank and The Diary of Anne Frank.

I cry a lot during war movies..

I've only cried during a handful of movies, namely: Titanic (I know, I know), Red Dog, Hachi: A Dog's Tale, Marley & Me (sensing a theme here?)... I feel like there's more but I can't think of them right now, so I'll come back if I remember any.

Marley and Me, when Sirius Black died in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when Dumbledore died in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, when Snape died in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, when Cedric Diggory died in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Titanic.

I cry at a lot of movies so I don't know if I could pick the saddest

But Marley and Me made me cry for days after everytime I thought about it. I also agree with Sarah about Pokémon...I didn't cry at it as a child but now if I see that scene I just start balling.

Titanic (obviously)
The Fox and the Hound (I cried like a baby when I first watched it)
My Girl (this scene )

I cry over anything. I cried over this scene in The Invention of Lying quite a bit.

I haven't actually seen Marley and Me.

Edit: Oh God, why did I watch that Invention of Lying scene? I'm crying again :')

Marley and Me, definitely. That movie is the best because it makes you feel like every emotion; it's both hilarious and depressing as hell. The Book Thief made me cry a lot too, and also the movie Twelve Years a Slave... that was so hard to watch. I know it's incredibly dorky but The Lion King always makes me cry too The part where he's begging his dad to wake up.... ugh. I cry every time

I forgot how much My Girl made me cry at that part. Shame the second one sucked.
