    well yeah :/ when peter's crying to his dying uncle, and when he has to come home to his aunt afterwards- that ****'s seriously sad. and when spidey has to kill his best friend's dad - I mean, I don't actually think people fully understand that kind of ****. and then you've got the fact that spider man can't get the girl of his dreams (we can all relate to that), well at least not in that film. watching peter fall is really like watching a spider getting washed down the drain.
    I swear he didn't even kill his best friend's dad. He just backflipped out of the way and accidentally caused the guy to impale himself.

    Still kinda sad, though.

    Yeah, this sums up my feelings perfectly. :yep:

    The plot summary from Wikipedia is grim

    Seita and Setsuko finally decide to leave and move into an abandoned bomb shelter. They release fireflies into the shelter for light. The next day, Setsuko is horrified to find that the insects have all died. She buries them all in a grave, asking why they had to die, and why her mother had to die. What began as a new lease on life grows grim as they run out of rice, forcing Seita to steal from local farmers and loot homes during air raids. When he is caught, he realizes his desperation and takes an increasingly ill Setsuko to a doctor, who informs him that Setsuko is suffering from malnutrition but offers no help. In a panic, Seita withdraws all the money remaining in their mother's bank account, but as he leaves the bank, he becomes distraught when he learns from a nearby crowd that Japan has surrendered unconditionally to the Allied Powers. He also learns that his father, a captain in the Imperial Japanese Navy, is probably dead since nearly all of Japan's navy is now at the bottom of the ocean. He returns to the shelter with a large quantity of food, only to find a dying Setsuko hallucinating. Seita hurries to cook, but she dies soon after. Seita cremates Setsuko's body, and puts her ashes in the fruit tin, which he carries along with his father's photograph, until his death from malnutrition in Sannomiya Station a few weeks later.
    Not least because "Japan" and "word war two" just conjures up nuclear bombs in my brain. :sad:

    That country really suffered in WWII

    No Wonder they have all this Godzilla stuff when that country has a history of being pummeled by war and natural disaster. No surprise a A lot fo their pop culture is about cities being pummeled into oblivion. :-/

    I cried watching the trailer of The Theory of Everything, simply a wonderful movie.

    A while back like maybe 4 years ago I remember crying at Marley and Me.

    This didn't really make me feel weepie. It's pretty grim but to be honest it's fairly over the top so towards the end I just thought it was too ridiculous to be emotionally invested....!
    It does seem kinda dramatic, but just the fact of that poor old woman my God.

    And when she made this speech it really hit me hard;



    jfc I shouldn't have watched it again now I feel sad.

    (Original post by Student403)
    Oh yeah. I don't generally connect emotionally with movies but relatively I guess I found the last scene a bit upsetting because I have a little sister myself and I could relate.



    It's sad but worth it
    I have 2 younger sisters oh god I'm an emotional monster.

    Despite loving 'The Elephant Man,' I avoid watching it because I find it to be so upsetting.
