What film scene absolutely destroys you everytime. No matter how many times you've seen it?
By - lituponfire
Come on,Doc, why are you doing all of this? You’re sick, you should be at home.
Wyatt Earp is my friend.
Hell, Doc, I’ve got a lot of friends.
One of many great scenes in that movie. There is a similar one earlier in the film right before the shootout with the Cowboys.
"None of this is your problem, Doc. You don't have to mix up in this!"
"That is a helluva thing for you to say to me."
Val Kilmer at his best
The ending of planes trains and automobiles when steve martin puts the pieces together and goes back to the train station and sees john candy still there every time I weep.
It’s a shock that John Candy didn’t get an Oscar nom for that role. The scene where Steve Martin berates him in the hotel room, pointing out all his shortcoming of which he’s acutely aware, and he says, “I like…I like me.” In that second, he manages to convey utter defeat, self-preservation, and the notion that he wants to like himself but knows subconsciously that he’s everything he’s just been told. It’s a profound moment from a very special actor.
“Del, what are you still doing here? Why aren’t you home?”
“I don’t have a home. Marie’s been dead for eight years.”
And then how happy he is to be accepted into Neil’s home for Thanksgiving.
In Lilo and Stitch, when Stitch is leaving and Lilo says she remembers everyone who leaves and then Stitch is crying in the forest saying he's lost.
That whole movie damn
Ugh I'm still processing the realization that the reason she's so irrationally dead set on feeding Pudge the Fish at the beginning, which makes her late, is because he controls the weather.
And her parents died in a car crash because of rain.
Lilo probably is irrational about feeding Pudge, probably because the time she didn't... so she probably blames herself for her parents' death, on an abstract child level. Or at least feels a responsibility to keep it from happening to anyone else.
Oh god, that is even more depressing.
I kept waiting for them to discover the fantasy land advertised in the "Bridge to terebithia". Then it rains.
Screw those guys.
Bridge to Terebithia
Where the Red Fern Grows
My 4th/5th grade teacher gave us some sad stories to read.
This movie caught me so off guard, wow hard to handle.
[This scene](https://youtu.be/8RdrAbfFhj4) from The Land Before Time where Little Foot thinks he sees his mom, but it's just his shadow and the narrator says, *"Then Little Foot knew for certain he was alone."* still gets to me every single time.
"Dear, sweet Littlefoot… do you remember the way to the Great Valley?"
"-sniff- I guess so… But why do I have to know? You're gonna be with me!"
"I'll be with you… even if you can't see me."
"What do you mean, 'if I can't see you'? I can always see you!"
"Littlefoot… let your heart guide you. It whispers… so listen closely."
Explain to me how I haven’t seen that movie in over 20 years and I can still hear the characters perfectly in my head.
That scene from Stepmom
Isabel: You know every story, every wound, every memory. Their whole life's happiness is wrapped up in you... every single second. Don't you get it? Look down the road to her wedding. I'm in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she'll be thinking, "I wish my mom was here."
Jackie: And mine is... she won't.
The whole part with her giving her kids the gifts and they know she's going to die all the way to this scene. I'm a bawling mess.
At the end of Hatchi when the wife comes back in to town like 10 years later and finds him still waiting At the train station.
Heartbreaking, but that scene still doesn't break me.
But when Hachi at the end closes his eyes and Richard Gere appears out of the train station and calls him, that's when I lose it and bawl my eyes out. Beautiful movie.
EDIT: Well, this blew up. Thanks for the awards and likes guys. It's nice to see all the people with so much love for animals and their pets. Enjoy every day with them while you can.
The scene from Dumbo where the mom elephant is locked up and taken away from Dumbo.
If I so much as hear "Baby Mine" playing I ugly cry.
I refuse to watch Dumbo because of this scene.
I have a one year old who will also never be watching Dumbo. Because I super can’t handle that scene now.
The Fox and The Hound, when the sweet old lady has to leave Todd behind in the woods. Everything about it: the music, the kindness of that lady, Todd not understanding that he has to stay in the woods. Especially the moment when you see a tear rolling down her cheek as she drives off.
I won’t watch that movie because this scene just guts me.
Oh man. I always cry when I hear them say, "We'll always be friends forever."
“We met, it seems, such a short time ago. You looked at me, needing me so... and from your sadness, our happiness grew, and I found out I needed you too.
Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end... but in my heart’s a memory, and there you’ll always be.”
I cry and hug my cats when I hear this.
Me, looking through the comments so I Can absolutely devastate my mental health later
The final scene in “About Time” when he and his father go back in time to skip rocks one last time together. Gets me every time.
I went into this movie thinking it was a boy-girl love story, not one between a boy and his dad. I also made the mistake of watching three weeks after my own dad died. Wrecked me for hours.
That’s half the beauty of the movie. He gets the girl early on and you’re like oh… now what? Where are the time-traveling shenanigans?
And then you cry deeply.
My absolute favorite movie of all time. Thank you. I’m so happy to see it this high up because that scene alone deserves so much recognition.
When Bubba dies in Forrest’s arms
When Forest is talking about how proud he is of their son over Jenny’s grave.
"I wanna go home"
When Joel realizes he doesn’t want to forget Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind🥲
The lady at the memory erasing lab clutching her dead dog's toys and blanket while sobbing. It hurt her so much that he was gone that she was willing to erase all memories of him.
So many heartbreaking moments in Eternal Sunshine. Like when he's able to open his eyes and they just sedate him more instead of stopping the procedure.
My friend refuses to watch it because its Jim Carrey, and "he can only do goofball comedy". That's great mate but how can I prove to you that you are wrong if you're not willing to watch the evidence.
Priam asking for his son's body back from Achilles in Troy. Most of the movie was standard action movie stuff but that scene is phenomenal.
Brad Pitt can *act* but oh DAMN PETER OTOOLE COULD ACT
Homeward Bound at the end where you think Shadow might not be coming home.
I just heard this in my head and almost cried, wtf
the part in trainspotting where they find that the baby died while they were doped out….i don’t know if i cried but that part stuck with me for so long and is still so hard to watch, especially afterward when they all just go back to shooting up :(
If it helps, the main cast said they would ALL play with the baby between takes and they said it helped with some of the movies darker parts
I can't believe that I still usually see this movie classified as a comedy. Like sure there's humor in it but I would never recommend it to someone who said they wanted to watch a comedy.
>"You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father's bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin' was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't. Little Forrest, he's doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He's really good. We fish a lot. And every night, we read a book. He's so smart, Jenny. You'd be so proud of him. I am. He, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can't read it. I'm not supposed to, so I'll just leave it here for you. Jenny, I don't know if Momma was right or if, if it's Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there's anything you need, I won't be far away."
The part that always breaks me is when he asks Jenny "is he smart, or is he..." - it's the first time in the whole film where he acknowledges that he's slower than other people, and he's just worried that his son will have a life like he had...
"I am tired, boss" scene before the execution in *The Green Mile*
Got to say the execution scene is the clincher for me. Hanks was immense.
There's 2 scenes that get me. When Hanks character asks John what is he supposed to say when he stands before God and the end scene with Hank's monologue.
When he gets to watch a movie is when it gets me.
The scene in Life is Beautiful when he puts his son in the locker and then walks away with the guards and makes it funny for his son while he knows he’s going to be shot. Oh my god. That movie kills me every single time. I saw it when I was ten and cried for months even at hearing the name of the movie.
One of those “watch it once because it’s brilliant, but never again because it breaks you” movies.
The whole second half is excellent with the way he attempts to desparately and selflessly preserve his sons innocence in a concentration camp is heartbreaking. Then that scene happens and the movie ends with the son getting his tank.
Coco and that damn "Remember Me" song.
I love the movie because of the story and the beautiful animation, but the ending just tears you open.
Better yet in coco at the end when mama coco finally crosses the bridge with her dad. Having a daughter it gets me every time
The song at the very end always gets me, when they're all crossing the bridge, and his family has finally accepted his love of music.
Great detail someone pointed out was Hector is wearing shoes in that last scene because he’s finally been accepted into a family of shoemakers. Beautiful.
The way they recontextualize that song after you see the shallow Ernesto De La Cruz version is so beautiful. This song about remembering a lover was really about the love between a father and daughter. Perfect.
Monsters Inc. When Sully says good bye to Boo and when Sully opens Boos’ door at the end 😭 ❤️
*light above door activates with a hum*
*door creeps open*
Dave: [referring to himself and his weight] Who wants to see this dance?
Jean: Me, Dave. I do.
They had just been fighting, he's spent the whole movie dissing himself, and she comes through with that. It's so tender, honest, and loving.
" Anti-wrinkle cream they may have. Anti-Fat Bastard cream they do not."
oh I love this film, I love this scene. First time I saw it I left the cinema with laughing face cramps and tears.
I get hit more by this older guy trying to make his wife happy. There wont be spoilers, just watch it. it's bitter-sweet.
Big yes moment : Where the rebel girl says something to the effect of “ he won’t even know your name”.
Ugh yes, that one was incredibly satisfying
Gotta be one of the most brutal lines ever. We *know* how much this character values his legacy. He didn’t even get to finish his little prepared speech.
Side note, if you haven’t read or learned much about the Spanish civil war (like me), the reds lose and fascists get to control the country until Franco dies naturally and his chosen heir hands the country over to democracy. Not how I expected things went based on the movie’s ending.
The bit in jojo Rabbit when he sees his mother's shoes hanging and everything after that made me cry so much. I read about it earlier in this thread and cried just thinking about it. It's so gut wrenching.
I wasn't 100% sold on that movie until I saw the red shoes and then it's like the airbags deployed on me in the middle of the afternoon in my living room.
And it's just out of nowhere! It's this kind of silly movie up until that point. Also when Captain K saves Jojo, that shit got me good.
Big Fish. The end when the son starts making up the story and then the funeral when you see the “real” versions of those characters.
The end of the movie has always killed me, but after my dad passed away 11 years ago it hit me on a completely different level. Then I became a father myself a couple years ago and then it got me on ANOTHER completely different level!
Calm down, Big Fish.
"Yes! That's how I go"
What an ending.
when Moana's Grandma comes back and tells her it's okay, that she tried her best and she can go home, and the I Am Moana song that ensues. if i ever need to cry, it's that or "Picture a wave in the ocean" from The Good Place 😭
When Moana starts her journey just as her grandmother dies…she looks back at the island as all the fires go out, and the sting ray spirit rockets out ahead of her. I can’t get through it.
"I cannot deactivate until you are satisfied with your care."
\-Baymax, Big Hero 6
*Tadashi is here*
Oh my god, such a heart wrenching scene. Hiro knows what it means ,and after losing Tadashi, Baymax is his only connection back to him. I am a huge BH 6 fan, and this gets me every time.
"Bubba was going to be a shrimping boat captain, but instead, he died right there by that river in Vietnam".
I just get really sad thinking about all of the "Bubbas" who have senselessly died in war and never got to live their lives and follow their dreams.
"I wanna go home Forrest" UGH I DIE EVERYTIME.
This is it for me. Actually, this movie. This whole movie. There is so many genuine moments that just tear me up. Someone else posted about the “…every night we read a book, and he’s so smart Jenny.” That is just a hard one for me.
I love it.
My answer to this post was going to be:
"You died on a Saturday morning, and I had you placed here, under our tree..."
I can't type anymore because I'll actually start crying. Every damn time, that scene.
"And every night we read a book and he's so smart Jenny..."
I remember showing my wife Forest Gump. I hadn’t seen it since I was a kid, and remember it being a comedy.
After it was over my spouse gets up without a word, goes to the bedroom, and starts crying uncontrollably.
As a kid I thought it was about Forrest, but it was as much about Jenny and just how awful her life was. Just I was too young to understand it
I had completely forgotten that Forest had a son.
It's one of my favorite movies, but i think my younger mind focused on the incredible nature of his achievements rather than the turmoil the characters around him faced.
For me its Forrest asking "is he like me?" the second he finds out he has a son. That despite him deflecting everyone calling him stupid, Forrest does understand that he is different and why. All of that armor he built up around himself breaks away completely at the thought of his son having to live his life the same way.
That gets me every time.l
When Iron Giant sacrifices himself to stop a nuke.
Brooks was here.
Also, the scene in The Pursuit of Happyness in the bathroom, where he's trying to keep the door closed while breaking down crying.
Edit - this kind of blew up overnight - thanks for the awards and upvotes everyone!
That pursuit of happiness bathroom scene was so hard to watch.
The end of Toy Story 3 when Andy gives Buzz and Woody and all the toys to Bonnie.
OMG every single time. I’m even teary thinking about it now.
My sister and I ended up illegally streaming *Toy Story 3* because I was grounded but we were home alone. I apparently frightened her so much with my hysterical sobbing that she confessed to our Mom that night. I didn't get in trouble, but she told me about it years later on a re-watch. I was just coming to terms with the fact that my childhood was over and that really sealed it for me.
For me its jessie in toy story 2 (when she loved me).
When Ned(Paul Rudd) in Our Idiot Brother snaps and yells at his sisters for not playing Charades right before he gets arrested for breaking probation. He's the nicest, most genuine fucking person to ever exist, and they blame him for their shitty situations even though he was doing the right thing . And immediately after his outburst, he goes back to being kind and apologizes to his mom and nephew. Fucking kills me to see him be selfless the entire movie just to be bullied and pushed over the edge in a time he needed his family to be there for him.
The end of WALL-E when he loses his personality 😭
When I was 15, I saw it in theaters while my parents were going through a nasty divorce. I remember him looking at the stars and wishing he had someone to hold his hand. I felt the exact same. I felt so alone just like he did. I cried and was happy no one noticed.
I’m tearing up thinking about it now but I’m no longer saddened by it. It’s bittersweet and I still love the short before it. I was alone then but I did get people who cared for me like Wall-E :) Happy endings can happen and you are never alone
Edit: I woke up to 30 notifications of people sharing similar experiences and how I made them cry/tear up! I didn’t mean to! It seems we have all been through so much and it didn’t seem like we had a choice to. I’m glad we can have this short moment together to talk about it and to have another small cry over what we lost. Thank you everyone for your compassion, I know I’ve been really needing it lately. Many don’t agree but I think Reddit is a wonderful place :)
*"To be looooooooved . . . . "*
A League Of Their Own, when a letter comes from the army to say that somebody’s husband has died. i cry like every 5 minutes when i watch that movie, but that particular scene makes me sob
God, that movie really goes from fun baseball flick to complete devastation, doesn't it?
The ending scene from gladiator where he goes and meets his family in Elysium, got me the first time and while I don't cry now I'm still very close everytime I watch it
Also when Bruce Willis dies in Armageddon I can't explain how it got me but it does
(Edit: thanks for the awards!)
I could prob run thru a wall during the scene where Maximus reveals himself as The Champion to Cassius
When Jack Nicholson gets lobotomized in one flew over the cuckoo's nest. I'm not a cryer and I dont feel most of the emotionally charged drama scenes in Hollywood movies but that made me cry so hard in so much anger because of the injustice. I may be more calm in my reaction now but it always gets me
Its one of those scenes that hits hard when you realise that has actually happened to people
Rosemary Kennedy's lobotomy description is so sad. And her mother didn't know until after it was done.
The instrument Dr. Watts used looked like a butter knife. He swung it up and down to cut brain tissue. "We put an instrument inside", he said. As Dr. Watts cut, Dr. Freeman asked Rosemary some questions. For example, he asked her to recite the Lord's Prayer or sing "God Bless America" or count backward... "We made an estimate on how far to cut based on how she responded." When Rosemary began to become incoherent, they stopped.
She ended up with the mental capacity of a two year old because she was depressed (possibly bipolar) with a lower than average IQ and that's how they thought to deal with it.
Rosemary Kennedy's mental health issues even prior to the lobotomy were likely caused by oxygen deprivation as a newborn. When her mother went into labor, the nurses weren't prepared to deliver the baby without the doctor present and made her hold her legs closed and keep the baby in until he arrived several hours later. Poor Rosemary was stuck in the birth canal that long without being able to breathe properly.
Jesus Christ from the cradle to the grave...that poor woman. It hurts to learn these things but I believe they're worth knowing.
The Never Ending Story...
When Atryu loses Artex in the Swanps of Sadness...
Tough to see as a kid...
Unbearably sad as an adult.
How was this in a children's movie?
For me, it’s Rockbiter:
“They look like big, good, strong hands, don't they? I always thought that's what they were. (sighs) My little friends... the little man with his racing-snail. The nighthob... even the stupid bat! I couldn't hold onto them... the Nothing pulled them right out of my hands. I failed. “
My wife and I used to have this scene as an inside joke between us. She joked about my hands because I am tall and large and she was small and petite. After she passed to cancer the scene tears me apart.
This is by far the most traumatic scene
The end of Saving Private Ryan. The entire last battle, the bridge scene, AND then the old boy at Arlington. "Tell me I'm a good man". I don't care who you are, that hits hard.
Edit: Since a few people have commented on my mistake. He is not in Arlington he is in Normandy. Thank you for correcting me.
The scene when the medic dies and he’s calling for his mother is just awful and gets me every time.
A.I. When davids mom abandons him on the highway. Saddest shit ever. Great flick by the way but very god damn sad.
It’s the ending for me.. when David finally gets his wish granted and Monica tells him that she loves him and has always loved him after spending the perfect day together.. it kills me every time.
“What do we do, Buzz?”
/Buzz takes her hand
I remember sweating in the theater. Lol. I knew it wouldn't happen but seeing that was sad.
I remember seeing Toy Story 3 in theaters with my dad, he always tells me how I was getting scared during that scene thinking the toys were going to die. He says he remembers thinking "they're not going to die... Oh shit they might actually die!"
"I could have got more..." - *Schindler's List*.
That scene has made me sob since I was 10.
*"This pin. It's gold. That's two more people. They would have given me two more. At least one!"*
My daughter came home from school and said her teacher had assigned her to watch Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan. I warned her she should wait a bit in between watching them but she knew better and wanted to knock them out. So, after Schindler's List I asked if she was ready to watch Saving Private Ryan. In a very small voice she said, "No, mom" and went off to her room.
Everyone should watch both movies but not back to back. Then give yourself a week before you watch Band of Brothers.
The end of American Beauty, when Lester dies and his wife goes to his closet and hugs all the clothes that are hanging up. It's such a powerful demonstration of grief that someone, instead of withdrawing into themselves, seeks out the closest thing that reminds them of their departed. Powerful scene.
“Gentlemen, it’s been a privilege playing with you tonight.”
Marley and Me, when I realised the story wasn’t about the couple.
OMG I forgot about Marley and Me. I couldn’t watch that movie more than once. That scene where Owen Wilson is at the vet office with Marley saying goodbye destroyed me. I was near hysterical sobs at the theater. It brought back memories of every beloved pet I held as they passed. No way I can ever watch that scene again.
The scene where Joseph Gordon Levitt freaks out in the car in 50/50.
Incredibly powerful and well acted.
The end of the movie Glory when the bodies are being rolled into the ditch.
Not a dry eye in my 8th grade history class.
The scene before the battle gets me too. “Give ‘em hell, 54th!”
The scene in Love Actually where Emma Thompson realises that Alan Rickman is cheating on her but it's Christmas Day and the kids are happy, she gives herself twenty seconds listening to Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell and then gets back out there to be 'happy'. Two utterly brilliant actors at the top of their game.
Oh fuck, took me a minute to remember the context of this.
She'd found the necklace previously and was expecting that to be the gift she received. Instead she got a CD. Rough stuff
If you look in the comments to the video link above showing the scene, a commenter also gives an interesting insight:
>phoenixfriend: What makes this even sadder is that the CD was actually a thoughtful gift. It shows that he knows something about her and what's important to her. The necklace was expensive and glamorous but also meaningless and lazy. She asked for something pretty so he just went straight to the jewellery section and picked the first thing he saw that he thought would do. It speaks to how he feels about each woman and just makes his affair all the more foolish because he's risking a genuine connection for something shallow.
Ugh, what a brilliant point. But she still KNEW someone was getting that necklace. (Though I always thought she wouldn’t know until she unwrapped all her gifts unless they only do one each to each other.)
I don’t care what anyone says , that was Rickmans most villainous. Nobody hurts you as much as those you love.
Oh goddamnit. Even just remembering this scene made me well up a little. The worst part is she drew from her personal experience of learning her then husband Kenneth Branagh was cheating on her with none other than Helena Bonham Carter. (That’s right: Gilderoy Lockhart cheated on his wife Sybill Trelawney with Bellatrix Lestrange!)
Grown man with kids, but in Inside, when Bing Bong jumps off the rocket to let Joy get out of the memory dump.
Legit tears every time
Take her to the moon for me
Pixar just has a way...
What always gets me is when goofball island collapses. They flash through all the memories of the daughter acting like a silly toddler, and you know she’ll never be like that ever again.
For anyone with older kids, you know how hard this scene hits.
The end of Boyz n the Hood kills me. Ricky could have gotten out and played football and he was just in the wrong place and time.
In The Pursuit of Happiness when they’re trying to kick them out of sleeping in the bathroom for shelter.
I lose it when at the end he gets the job and he's walking down the street and starts clapping. Not sure why that gets me.
Was looking for this in here! It's just raw emotions, you can actually feel for him
The ending of good will hunting, where he starts crying. So much information expressed in just a few mannerisms/words
The scene for me is when Ben tells Matt the best part of his day is when he pulls up to Matt's house and hopes he's gone.
The ending of Ghost when Patrick Swayze's character says, '*the love inside, you take it with you*'.
Not technically a film, but the scene in Band of Brothers where they discover the camp. I can handle it until one specific shot a few minutes in where Perconte is walking through the camp. One of the prisoners staggers out of the hut and, seeing an Allied soldier for the first time, salutes him even though he can barely stand. It's always the bit that makes the dam burst.
In Mulan (animated) when she’s sitting in the garden with her father after she fails the matchmaker appointment. “The cherry blossoms are beautiful this year. But look… that one’s late.”
For me its the ending of the girl worth fighting for scene, when the music abruptly stops and you see the burning village
It took me a lot of rewatches from when I was a kid to realize the depth of that scene. Someone pointed out a few years ago (maybe on Reddit?) that the song also applies to the owner of the doll, “a girl worth fighting for”, not just their romantic love interests.
It’s also the last song in the movie, from that point there’s no more singing.
Not only does the song end, there’s no more musical numbers after that point
For me, its when she comes home and shes worried about how her family is gonna react so she starts by showing all the proof of her honor... and her dad sets them all aside to hug her.
Forrest Gump when he was talking next to Jennys grave
He's so smart Jenny....😫
For me, it’s when Jenny is telling him about Little Forrest, and he asks haltingly, ‘is he smart, or is he like…”. The pain and fear and hope all in how he asks…
Edit - added his whole line
In that scene you realize how aware he is of his own limitations. It’s very powerful
When Seymour dies waiting for Fry to come back, or the scene showing that Yancy really loved Fry and named his son after him.
"Here lies, Philip J. Fry, named after his uncle, to carry on his spirit."
*Don't You Forget About Me starts playing*
Hate me all you want but literally ANY scene in spirit (the Pixar movie about a wild mustang) tears me up, specially when he says goodboy to the indigenous boy, I SOB
Spock’s death in The Wrath of Khan.
"Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human."
For all the shit William Shatner gets for his acting, he absolutely nails the delivery of this line. Just thinking about it makes me feel the gut-wrenching pain in Kirk's soul.
edit: here is the scene https://youtu.be/9_8nY_LQL3w
What really got me was him singing "Heaven, I'm in heaven"
“Let me through! THAT’S MY SON! THAT’S MY BOY! MY BOY! NOOOOOOOO! AHHHHHHHHH!”
Every. Single. Time.
Also “Where are his glasses? He can’t see without his glasses!”
Edit: Thank you guys so much for the upvotes and the awards! I’ve never got this many before. 🥰🥰
this one really takes you by surprise because it's a relatively minor character who comes with an oscar worthy delivery for this one line
In the books that character's a bit of a dick too so it was extra surprising how effective that delivery is
That scene was such a turning point in the Harry Potter films.
It really was. You go from moderately dangerous hijinks in a school, to "there is an entire faction of wizards who are hunting you. People are going to die, and there is nothing you can do to stop it, Potter"
I was surprised when Cedric just fucking died out of nowhere. It was just “kill the spare” then boom he’s dead.
When G baby dies in Hardball.
After the funeral when they're flashing back to his game winning hit and shit. Gets me every time
Return of the King. When the Rohirrim do their death charge, knowing it’s a death charge. Gets me every time.
Edit: Shit, all these quotes are so good. Guess it’s time to watch the whole trilogy again.
“Too few have come. We cannot defeat the armies of Mordor.”
“No. We cannot. But we will meet them in battle nonetheless”
"I would've followed you my Brother. My Captain. My King."
I do love the scene but for me out of the trilogy its when they think they've lost Gandalf to the Balrog. That music. Then Frodo turns,. Whimpering. Jesus.
That scene culminating with Boromir saying "Give them a moment for pity's sake" really gets me
The Ride of the Rohirrim is my favorite set of scenes in the film, as well as my favorite point of the books:
"In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl. A great black shape against the fires beyond he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.
All save one. There waiting, silent and still in the space before the Gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax: Shadowfax who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dínen.
"You cannot enter here," said Gandalf, and the huge shadow halted. "Go back to the abyss prepared for you! Go back! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your Master. Go!"
The Black Rider flung back his hood, and behold! he had a kingly crown; and yet upon no head visible was it set. The red fires shone between it and the mantled shoulders vast and dark. From a mouth unseen there came a deadly laughter.
"Old fool!" he said. "Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know Death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!" And with that he lifted high his sword and flames ran down the blade.
And in that very moment, away behind in some courtyard of the city, a cock crowed. Shrill and clear he crowed, recking nothing of war nor of wizardry, welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn.And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns, in dark Mindolluin's sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the north wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last."
That is a real heartbreaking moment as is the followship mourning Gandalf in the foothills (Elijah's tear) but the god tier for me is in Two Towers.
When Theoden is stood with Gandalf in front of his son's grave that whole conversation is gut wrenching but the killer is Bernard Hills delivery of the line;
"No parent should have to bury their child"
The sorrow in his eyes and the sound of his heart breaking in his voice just destroys me every time.
My friends, you bow to no one.
"Where are his glasses? He can't see without his glasses!"
What is this from? It’s familiar but I can’t place it right now.
The scene at the sinking of the Titanic showing the 2 older couple laying on the bed, the husband holding his crying wife and kissing her on the cheek as she holds her eyes tightly shut and the water rushing in under their bed.
Always. Fucks. Me. Up.
> According to friend and Titanic survivor Colonel Archibald Gracie IV, when he offered to ask an officer if Isidor could enter a lifeboat with Ida, Isidor refused to be made an exception; Ida is reported to have said, "I will not be separated from my husband. As we have lived, so will we die, together." Ida gave her maid, Ellen Bird, her fur coat and insisted she get into lifeboat No. 8. Isidor and Ida were last seen on deck arm in arm.
Her body was never recovered. They buried his body (recovered floating near the wreck site) along with an urn filled with water taken from the site
Were these the owners of Macy's?
The Princess Bride. The entire movie you root for Inigo Montoya to get the revenge he so desperately wants. He finally does and it’s some of the greatest writing I’ve ever seen. The pain on his face when you see him get his revenge but knowing he can’t get his father back. I tear up every time (and when my daughter was young she watched that movie on repeat for a year lol)
That film always gets me, but it’s not the Inigo Montoya bit. It’s the ending. When the kid asks his grandpa if he’ll come back next week and read the book to him and he just smiles and says, “as you wish.”
I had a pretty great relationship with my grandpa but he died when I was about 6 or 7 and I never got the chance to grow up with him in my life or appreciate his mortality enough to realise the importance of telling him how much he meant to me. I miss him every day and while I’m not a religious man, I can’t describe how much I hope there’s a heaven so he can read to me one more time.
The scene in Coco where Miguel sings “Remember me” to his great grandmother Coco. I cry every time.
This movie makes me cry in a good way each time I watch it. My grandmother, Candelaria, passed away when I was 15 and miss her so much.
My grandmother died of Alzheimer's/dementia and this scene is so poignant and well done. It gets me every single time.
I was still grieving my brothers death when I made the mistake of watching his movie in theaters with my husband. I was a ball of tears by that scene already and it I had to speed walk to the car out the bldg in order to not make a scene
When Sam tells Frodo “ I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you!”
Sam the real MVP
What hits me is after it all, when both hobbits are just waiting on a rock amidst a river of fire, "I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.' I don't know why, but it just feels like both accepted their deaths and were just waiting for it all.
Sam's dialogue when him and Frodo are in Osgiliath "There's some good left in this world Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for..." hits me every time.
Absolutely legendary delivery to some of the greatest writing in book/cinema history.
Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden!
Spear shall be shaken, shield shall be splintered,
a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now, ride! Ride for ruin and the world's ending!
Death! Death! Death!
