Top Ten Saddest Movies


The Contenders: Page 14XW

261The Patriot

So many death scenes... They're so emotional, like when the guy who plays Mel's son died, I had lost it.

262The Perfect Storm

Oh yeah, I cried on this one. My mom had just died in 2002, and I took a line from near the end of the movie to be read at her funeral. I couldn't do it myself, I had lost my voice.

263Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The ending scene when arnie puts his thumb up to john connor as he is melting in lava is a tear jerker

I know I cried when I saw that the first time too. I was about 9 - Razor79

I think we all cried when he gave the thumbs up to John.

I didn't expect a terminator movie to be so sad

264My Life

The fact that I see top ten list of saddest movies ever that do no include this movie says a lot about top ten list. Michael Keaton is fantastic in this from start to finish. I have never shed more tears in two hours at any point in My Life.

Not only does it make you cry like a baby, my life teaches you about how important every second of your life is. But the family relationships when you know someone is dying is a killer. I wish they put this movie on T.V. or even cable soon.

So sad. The only reason it's not rated higher is that not enough people have seen it. The death scene is done beautifully.

Should be in the top ten! One of the most underrated movies of all time. If you don't cry you are not human. At last a real film about real life.

266The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Oh my god, I cry at every Wes Anderson film. They should all be on here, seriously. Especially The Royal Tenenbaums.

267The Mission

See the movie and the music from Ennio Morricone deserves your attention.

268Moon Child

The saddest movie ever..
It's about five friends. One of them is a vampire. In the end all of them are gonna die.

Gackt as Sho
HYDE as Kei - Ga-Gackt

269The Impossible

How is this movie #265? Whenever I cry during sad movies (which is very rarely) I generally cry silent tears and I'm still able to watch the movie. However, with this one, I was shaking with anguish and I legitimately had to pause it before I could finish it. There were so many times that this movie really affected me and even now (almost 6 months since I watched it) I am tearing up just thinking about it. To be honest, I only watched this movie because Tom Holland is the new Spiderman but I am so so glad I did. It is a beautiful movie that deserves way more credit.

I've legit never cried in a movie before but literally every time I see this movie I cry multiple times, it is the most emotional film made and it ills me that most people don't even know about it even when it was academy award nominated - u_maddox_bro

This is an amazingly emotional movie. And its real life, which makes it so much more dramatic. You feel as if you are there in the tsunami with them... It is so sad and terrifying, yet so beautiful and touching. How is this not #1...

Number 1 in my book. I couldn't breathe through the tears but it's beautifully executed.

This is the only movie to make me cry (possibly its because its one of the only good things my home states done in a long time)
P.S.A.I. was one of the most stupid movies I have ever seen. - fireinside96

I think this a enspiring movie that brings you to tears every time you watch it - cheyeanne


Really sad. I love the song at the end with the photo! One of those endings where you just have to know what happens to them after the end.

I love this movie so much! Its one of those movies I wish they showed at my school. Forget Mulan, I want Bolt
