Poor bastard.

Yeah it's just a cartoon, but wow. The crowd...first they're all nice and cheering, then one idiot throws a tomato and they all turn. Reminds me of Roland Garros :angel:.

The egging scene of Drew Barrymore on "Never Been Kissed" is another that gets me. Poor bitch thought she'd landed the hottest and most popular guy in school to take to the prom :sad:.

So many sad scenes in Melancholia but the last one is pretty bleak.

The death scene in "Terms of Endearment" and the prom scene in "Carrie" instantly come to mind. Also, this one may sound stupid, but the scene in "Dumbo" when Dumbo's mom is locked up but cradles Dumbo back and forth with her trunk through the bars... Oh, and I actually thought the ending of "8 Mile" was sad in a bittersweet way because even though Eminem triumphed at that rap-off; in the end, he just goes home, and not much has changed.

I cried like a baby.

Anyone who knows true love and finds their soulmate, only to give them up and do the right thing, knows the power of this scene.

This type of certainty comes but once in a lifetime.

Deserves a mention.

Grave of the Fireflies too if anybody has seen that. I physically cannot bring myself to watch it again. One scene in particular stands out but the entire film is so harrowing. I was upset for some time after watching it.

This one came straight to mind. It left me so numb. A movie had never made me feel like that before, and hasn't since.

Also several scenes of Brokeback Mountain got me quite emotional, like the one where he hugs the shirt in the closet.

What about that movie with the gay boy who talks around with a chicken's head in his mouth that made you depressed for like a month?

LBR, Any gay-themed film that involves some sort of tragedy will probably make me depressed.

It was rather shady how she kept the diamond the whole time they were looking for it...and could've taken care of her grandbabies' futures with that thing :sobbing:.

Too bad this was never made. It's a great trailer fake.

I didn't find Requiem for a Dream sad at all. The movie was so exploitive and emotionally manipulative that I was just angry at the end of it. When the writer was clearly trying to build one horrible thing after another for an entire movie the emotional effect wears off.

I can cry easily at films. I'm not sure what "modern cinema" is since people seem to be posting old films. But the ones I found the saddest are Tokyo Story and Pather Panchali. When the mother dies and the father is just sitting there alone in Tokyo Story killed me. :o

But even worse was Pather Panchali when the little girl gets sick and dies after dancing in the rain. The music that was playing and the mother crying. I was seriously ugly sobbing. :sobbing:

You found this to be sadder than the Scatterheart scene?
Selma's execution was definitely sad, but I think I expected it, so the blow was softened. But the Scatterheart scene was just the absolute manifestation of the tragedy for me. :tears:

This whole movie literally destroyed me but the little girl in the red coat hit me the hardest. When they showed her dead body on the wagon, I burst into tears and had to get up and be excused from class. Such a great movie but I'll never, ever watch it again.

Word on "Schindler's List." The ending with the stones... simply no words. That scene in "Sophie's Choice" was indeed crazy cathartic, but the movie was so boring up til then. And I'm glad to hear I'm not alone in being less than impressed with "Requiem for a Dream." I found it overstylized, manipulative, and ultimately pointless. I mean, drug mess up people's lives, YOU DON'T SAY! And that whole double dildo scene, ugh.

As for movies to add to the list, gotta give a shout out to "Longtime Companion." Just breaks your heart. And there's a scene in one of my all-time favorite movies "Stand By Me" when Wil Wheaton's older brother (John Cusack) dies and then his asshole father tells him, "It should've been you." I remember, I literally JOLTED when I saw that scene.

:sad: I get so sad when animals die or get hurt in movies.

Ive never cried in a disney movie and I didnt like Requiem for a Dream.. didnt find it that sad just annoying really. It has been a while since Ive seen it.

I have to admit I cry in alot of movies so I could name alot :lol: I even cry in the cheesy movies.

Pay it Forward gets me everytime. Also Freedom Writers.
And yeah Schindler's List. Stepmom too.

I also remember going to the movies to watch A Walk to Remember and just thinking the story was so sad and when Shane West's character goes to his dad ... yeah that gets me too.

Cried like a baby when I first saw My Girl too.
