Top Five Saddest Movie Scenes






Hello Everyone.




The Following List are all scenes from movies that have caused me to shed tears no matter how many times I have seen them. These are moments that I believe will cause even the most hardened person to get a little weepy at. Even if you are a cyborg,you'll  rust up a little with the following scenes.

Click on Each title to see the clip of the movie on YouTube.  Some of them will have spoilers.






  5.)            The Muppets Take Manhattan.

In this clip The Muppets have just broken up. WHAT!!!!. Yes that's right the fuzzy pack can no longer do shows together so they decide to go their own separate ways. I know the idea of getting sad at a bunch of felt puppets is a bit ridiculous, but these characters have been a part of my life ever since I was a kid, and to see them leave each other was like they were saying goodbye to me.  One of the most heartfelt emotional scene in any Muppet Movie.







4.)        Finding Nemo

Pixar always does just a fantastic job at bringing some really heartfelt emotions to a lot of their pictures.  I could have listed numerous moments from their other movies, but the one that stuck out the most was this one from "Finding Nemo".  In it, Marlin(Albert Brooks) becomes so frustrated with Dory's(Ellen Degeneres) mistakes that he decides to leaves her.  Dory pleads for him not to go because for once in her life she feels like she belongs.  I never thought that fish could be this damn expressive but yeah I still manage to conjure up some tears every time I watch this.






3.)      Thirteen

SPOILERS BELOW






I have no idea of what it is like to be a teenager today, and I know even less of what it's like to be girl too.   Evan Rachel Wood is a relevation in this drama from Catherine Hardwick("Twilight" Yes you read right she also directed "Twilight") about a young woman who no longer wants to be a child.  She befriends one of the most popular girls in school and the two begin to experiment with drugs and sex.   The scene that I link to comes right at the very end after everything has been exposed to her mom(Holly Hunter)  Watching this scene out of context , one might come away with that this girl is nothing more than a little brat and why wasn't her mother noticing these things about her behavior earlier.  However during the movie, you see that her mother is in her daughter's  life as much as she can be.  It's not easy to  watch your kids every moment of every day.  I know we like to think we do, but it's really not that  possible.  This scene also shows us the undying love between a mother and her child, and of a young girl who finally is able to let go of the frustrations that come with adolescences.  Although I could be just speculating on that last statement.  Like I said before I have no idea what really goes on in a woman's head during this time.






2.) Beauty and The Beast.

SPOILERS BELOW








I couldn't find the clip to link to  so I will just have to explain it here. Although those of you who have seen this will already know what I am talking about. The Beast has just been stabbed by Gaston while Belle was trying to save him. As he falls, she rushes to his side and holds him close. She whispers the words "I Love You" and sheds a single tear just as the last rose pedal falls. After watching this scene, I could understand why it was nominated for Best Picture. I really thought The Beast had died without ever knowing that someone truely loved him.  It takes a great team of artists, animators, and voice actors to pull off such a great moment. I don't care if this was suppose to be meant for little kids or that crying at this make me a giant wuss.  I 'm proud to say I still cry at this moment every single time I watch it.






1.) Dancer in The Dark.

SPOILERS BELOW










The most saddest scene in film history comes from Lars Von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark". and it's the one at the very end when Bjork's character is about to be executed.   I dare you to find me a movie clip that is as emotionally heavy as this one. I went through a lot of them and could not find one. Sure there are a lot of really excellent movies with a lot of great sad moments, but none have caused me to shed tears like a faucet the way this one has  After watching this movie again I was really pissed off at the Oscars for not nominated Bjork's performance, because she was just so good in this. She brought out more heavy emotion then any other actor that year.  




What were some of you saddest moments in movies? Please leave suggestions in the comment section and have a happy filled week.

  1. I can top #1 since Lars von Trier is the master of heavy melodrama at its most visceral.

    It's the moment in Breaking the Waves when Bess is hospitalized after being beaten and brutalized by a sadistic sailor in order to save the life of her paralyzed husband. It's a heartbreaking moment because of what she was doing as her sister in law is trying to save but what happens just goes beyond devastation. Everything else afterwards in the epilogues just ups the ante.

  2. It's been a while since I saw that movie but will check it out again. I remeber Emily Watson being amazing

  3. One that always gets me is in Brad Bird's The Iron Giant, the the giant sets off to sacrifice himself to save the town and merely says the words "I'm... superman."

    It's always kind of crazy to think how many real tearjerker scenes can make their way into kids movies.
