Top Five Saddest Movie Scenes

Post by Luu Sky Sapphire on Tue May 28, 2013 11:05 pm

Did my own Saddest Movie Scenes meme thing. :) Why I chose these particular five will be explained one by one. Use your spoiler tabs for each!



5.) Sailor Moon R: The Movie -

Spoiler:
During an epic and seriously climatic scene, Usagi aka Sailor Moon uses her Ginzuishou to destroy a powered meteor that will destroy Earth. While she's doing this, her friends are assisting her by offering their powers, but not before thinking about why Usagi means so much to them. One by one, each Inner Sailor Senshi reflects on what a good person Usagi is. If that isn't sad enough, the Ginzuishou shatters, ending Sailor Moon's life. If THAT'S not sad enough, Fiore shows up to revive Sailor Moon using the last of his life energy. Once Mamoru gives it to Usagi through a kiss, Usagi awakens and the pinnacle of my tears start running down my face when she says

"I told you...that I would protect everyone."

Sorry, but that was it for me. Not only was it a beautiful scene, it shows the audience that Usagi is truly the embodiment of purity and sheer greatness. If she says the world will be saved, I believe her. When I first saw this film, I nodded the second she said this, got up and applauded. As well as all my friends at the time. Sailor Moon aka Usagi Tsukino is a symbol of hope, more so than every superhero or anime protagonist I've ever seen. Unless she gives up, she will never lose and we all know Usagi NEVER quits. Even when she refuses to fight, she ALWAYS find a way to win and this film shows that.

4.) Ghost -

Spoiler:
Sam Wheat (played by the late great Patrick Swayze) and Molly Jensen's (Demi Moore) happy life was cut short when a hired thug kills Sam, leaving him to wander around as a spirit. As he spends time with his grieving girlfriend, he discovers that his murder was a set up. So he seeks the aid of a Spiritual Advisor/con artist (Whoopi Goldberg) who possesses the ability to hear spirits. With her help, Sam can save Molly from the man behind his murder.

In the film's climax, Sam becomes visible (by Heaven) for Molly to see. They gave him a chance to say a proper goodbye to Molly and it is powerful. The kiss between the two and their genuine exchange is touching.

"It's amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you."

He's right.

3.) Superman II (The original Lester version) -

Spoiler:
After saving the Earth from General Zod and his crew, Lois Lane tries to go back to her normal routine life while knowing Superman's true identity. In a scene many fans dubbed as a low point because of the magic "forgetful kiss"; they're completely missing the TRUE magic of this scene. We'll get to the kiss later.

In the scene where Superman (disguised as Clark Kent once again) meets up with Lois, she finds it difficult adjusting to the fact that whenever she needs him to hold her, be with her, she knows he'll be away saving the Earth. Lois feels she's in the way of what he was meant to do: Be a savior. She is destroyed by this, borderline suffering to know her and Superman can never truly be together. It was because of his decision to turn mortal again, that Zod showed up and tore Earth up. She feels responsible and in a way, rightfully so. Not saying it was her fault, but she knows it's HIS feelings for HER that caused such an irrational decision and in turn, she loves him back, making it more complicated. Margot Kidder's performance is heartbreaking but excellent. Same for Christopher Reeve, who clearly expresses bottled up pain. He tries to comfort Lois, but it just doesn't work. So instead, he makes her forget all the events of the movie by giving her a kiss that wipes her memory. Not one of his powers, yeah, yeah...so? It worked for this scene and I loved it.

2.) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial -

Spoiler:
There are many movies about a Boy and his *insert here*. Whether it's a dog, a killer whale or an iron giant, the genre is done to death. Back in 1982, Spielberg made me believe a boy and his ALIEN could work with E.T. Elliot (played by Henry Thomas) meets an unlikely friend in a lost alien who was accidentally left behind by his family. Throughout the film, the two bond like two best friends and learn more about each other. Feeling what each other feels (please, no dirty thoughts. :p )

In the climax of the film, Elliot and E.T. manage to escape the clutches of the evil U.S. Government and arrive just in time for E.T.'s family to return. Now I know a lot of people credit the temporary "death" of E.T. as the saddest scene in the movie, but I don't see it that way. Don't get me wrong, it was emotional, but at the length of time that scene arrived in, there was no way E.T. was truly kid. Even I knew this as a kid! What I wasn't expecting was the goodbye scene. E.T. starts giving farewells and thank yous to Elliot's brother and sister, leaving Elliot for last. E.T. wants Elliot to join him and in turn, Elliot begs him to stay. When E.T. hears this, he responds with "ouch" and Elliot does the same. "Ouch" being their way of saying "I'm hurt. I'm going to miss you terribly." Soon after, they embrace with such warmth, I pretty much lost it. But when I watch it today, it STILL holds a powerful effect on me. A tear or two will always drop, because it shows that no matter how different you are, friendship is everlasting.

1.) Old Yeller -

Spoiler:
Without a shadow of the doubt, the greatest dog related movie of all time. Sure you had your Benjis, your Beethovens, your Hachis and even Marley & Me; they were all great films. However, this classic Disney film really PERFECTED the "Boy and his dog" genre and it was done long before the rest came around. Old Yeller was a Old Yeller was a mongrel. An ugly, lop-eared mongrel. Fancy free without a family tree. But he could up and do it. And prove there's nothing to it. And that's how a good dog should be.

The story centers around Travis, a Texas boy who wants to prove himself as man of the house while his father ventures off to Kansas. While Travis did a bang up job with protecting his family, there was something missing. Something even his father pointed out in the beginning of the film: A dog. Travis waves it off saying he'd rather have a horse than a dog. Meet Old Yeller, a trouble making mutt who finds Travis' farm and is immediately welcomed by Travis' younger brother and mother. At first, Travis doesn't like Old Yeller, but as the film progresses, they form a bond with one another. Travis is constantly impressed with Yeller's hunting, guarding and loyal nature, that he finally takes Yeller in. Together they were a great team. That is, until that one night.

After one of the family cows gets infected with rabies (called "Hydrophobie" in the film), the Travis family decide to burn the carcass. Out of nowhere, a wolf shows up and Yeller fights him off. Travis eventually shoots the wolf and everything's good, right? Wrong. Travis' mother immediately noticed that the wolf was rabid and it already bit Old Yeller in several places. She suggests that they end Yeller's life before things get worse. Travis refuses, insisting he's okay and that they'll pen him up for a couple of weeks to be sure.

Some weeks go by and Yeller seems to be fine, so things start looking up. That night, Travis heads out to feed Yeller in his pen and notices something strange. Yeller is growling viciously at Travis. At that moment, I covered my mouth in disbelief. Remember, at that point, I believe his mother, but maybe the movie would let it slide. Nope. Yeller was infected and the look on Travis's face says it all. Brilliant performance by Tommy Kirk btw.

Travis is unable to face reality, so he leaves the pen and back to his room. Meanwhile, his younger brother feels sorry for Yeller being locked up so long, so in a suspenseful scene, he runs to the pen to let Yeller out! Travis and his mother stops him in time, but the second the mother saw Yeller try to kill her youngest son, that was more than enough to convince Travis. In a heartbreaking moment, he makes the hardest decision of his life.

"He was my dog. I'll do it."

One shot is heard with dead silence following it. Travis is emotionally destroyed.

The next day, Travis and Elizabeth bury Old Yeller and receives comforting words from his father who just returned from Kansas.

"Now and then, for no good reason, life will haul off and knock a man flat."

That's so true, but he then informs Travis that with every bad, comes a good. Old Yeller ends on a happy note when Travis realizes that Old Yeller had a puppy son! Knowing Old Yeller will live on through this new puppy really made the movie so much better. If it ended with the death (as wonderful as it was from an acting/screen writing perspective), we would of been left with an empty feeling.

So! Share yours and remember those spoiler tabs!

Blame the time period it was set in. XD No vaccines at that time!

Sure! I'm curious to see which movie scene you find sad. :(

Re: Top Five Saddest Movie Scenes

Ok, here's my list. I'll try my best to explain why Razz

5: Donnie Darko -
Spoiler:
A movie about a troubled teen who ends up being manipulated by a large rabbit, from his own imagination, and starts to commit crimes, after a bizarre incident that should've killed him. Around that time, Donnie was seeing a therapist, and at school, he met this one girl named Gretchen (a new girl in school), whom later becomes Donnie's girlfriend.

The sad part about the film was that towards the end, Donnie saw a time tunnel, and an airplane was struck by a turbulence caused by the tunnel, causing one of the engines to break and go through the tunnel. Going back in time, 28 days before, Donnie was seen being all happy and laughing while in his room, and the airplane tunnel crashed through his roof, killing him.

After that same incident (but with different results), Donnie's family was seen outside while Donnie's body is being taken out. Gretchen was riding her bike when she saw the troubled family. Since the film went back in time, Gretchen never met Donnie, so Donnie wasn't really remembered by others, besides his family

4: Rent -
Spoiler:
A famous Broadway musical made into a movie, with the same tragedy. Based on Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème, the musical takes place in the bohemian world, with 8 main characters (5 of them with the HIV/AIDS disease), struggling to survive in the poor area of New York. The musical/film deals with love, loss, homosexuality, drugs, death, so on. 3 characters are gay, with 1 being bisexual. 2 of them in particular, Tom Collins (gay anarchist) and Angel Dumott Schunard (gay drag queen) fall in love, and helped the others believe in love.

Unfortunately however both Collins and Angel are HIV/AIDS victims, and half-way through the musical/film, Angel falls very ill due to the disease, and later on dies. Collins and the others attend Angel's funeral, and sing a very emotional sad reprise song. The entire topic and struggles the musical/film mentions, the funeral scene is a very tear-jerking scene, and not only because Angel is one of the most popular characters among fans.

With the other characters distraught, they sing about how they never experienced the type of love Angel had with Collins - someone to live for, unafraid to say "I love you", etc. The entire topic of Angel's death and the aftermath after the funeral just knows how to pull the strings to make someone cry

3: The Godfather -
Spoiler:
One of the most highly rated movies in history, The Godfather revolves around the Mafia life. Based on the novel that's based on real life events in the Mafia world, the movie does experience a lot of deaths, though some are more sad than others.

One in particular involves Don Corleone's oldest son, Santino "Sonny" Corleone. Although Sonny is very hot-headed and quick to anger, he is protective when it comes to his family, especially the most to his sister, Connie Corleone, who is the youngest in the family, because she married a very abusive man whom Sonny greatly hates.

Before Sonny's death, he went to pick up Connie, whom has a black-eye due to her husband, and Sonny went out in rage and began to beat up Connie's husband, and even made a threat that he'll kill him if Connie was harmed again. That incident caused Connie's husband to go to the Barzini family and strike up a deal to kill Sonny in revenge.

Sonny got a phone call from Connie saying that her husband had beaten her up, and Sonny storms out in complete anger and drives off to get his sister. While on his way, he runs into traffic by the toll booth, which happens to be a trap. Enemy Mafia members began to shoot Sonny with machine guns, brutally killing him in the process. Sonny's death was the last straw for Don Corleone, and had a peace meeting with the other Dons to end the Mafia war that was going on

2: Dead Poets Society -
Spoiler:
An inspirational film with Robin Williams, about a teacher teaching his students to enjoy poetry and seize the day. Although powerful, emotional and inspirational, the film is also very tragic. One character named Neil Perry is an ambitious young man who dreams on becoming an actor, which his father (a stern and narrow-minded man) greatly disapproved of.

After Neil's great performance in A Midsummer Nights Dream, Neil's father argued with him at home, stating he will pull Neil out of Welton and forcibly enroll him in Braden Military School to prepare him for Harvard University and a career in medicine. Due to the constant abuse from his father, Neil can't cope about his future and his father not being able to understand his emotions. During the middle of the night, Neil sneaks downstairs into his father's office, and kills himself by using his father's gun

1: Schindler's List -
Spoiler:
The entire movie is tragic and sad, but one scene in particular gets me. Oskar Schindler (a member in the Nazi party) and his wife were outside riding horses, and saw the Nazis downhill evacuating the Jews. Schindler was hit by the experience when he saw a little girl in a red coat being evacuated by Nazi soldiers. Because of the little girl, Schindler changed his views and ways, and saved 1,200 Jews. Later in the film, the little girl in red was seen again, but dead, among other Jews.

And although the girl in red was fictional, the real girl in red, Roma Ligocka, survived the Holocaust, and even wrote a memoir

Good choice, Nymph. Rent is sad overall (and wildly entertaining before our beloved characters take their respective dives), lady fumi, everything just tugged at the heart strings.
