Tear Jerkers

Post by Jane Poirot » Mon Mar 26, 2012 4:11 pm

We might have our share of movie moments that frighten us, or moments that are too harsh for us to watch. And then there are these, the kind that evoke a few tears out of you. What are some of your personal tear jerkers in any fictional medium?
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!

Terry Fawles from Trials and Tribulations killing himself because the betrayed the girlfriend who used and betrayed him, the spirit of the caption in Interstella 5555 saluting the main cast before disappearing into nothingness, Claire going back in time in The Unwound Future...
The list goes on and on.

There are several very sad moments in CINEMA PARADISO, and I always cry at the endings of THE PIANIST, SCHINDLER'S LIST, and especially LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. I also shamelessly sob at that moment in THE FOX AND THE HOUND where Todd is abandoned...

Disney has a way of getting to me, particularly Pixar. I'm really not a crier, but I cried within the first ten minutes of Up, and of course during Toy Story 3 when they're all close to dying and Jessie asks Buzz "What do we do?" When he just holds out his hand, I started bawling. To see these toys, these characters I watched as a kid hold hands and accept death was a bit much. That being said both sequences are brilliant.

Agreed 100%
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?
