Top Ten Saddest Movie Scenes

The Top Ten
1 John Coffey's execution - The Green Mile

"Please don't put that thing on my head! I'm a afraid of the dark!".
Probably the saddest line in movie history.

The Green Mile Was by far the most Powerful Movie I've Ever seen.

It wasn't sad, but uncomprehensible. I mean, he should have tried to save the innocent.

2 Mufasa's death - The Lion King

His brother killed him. Why would he do that? (Look at the movie for the answer. Trust me)

Scar killed Simba's father.

3 Opening scene - Up
4 Bruno and Shmuel getting gassed - The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Worst Movie ending ever! Why would they kill two innocent boys? Even worse, his dad killed BOTH! Like Powerfulgirl10's review, the music is so creepy, and to add insult to injury, the movie was cut when the outside of the gas chamber. So that means no funeral for the boys!

Ugh. I hate that ending. The music is creepy, and there are too many deaths. That's why it's so sad.

Did you really expect a happy ending given the subject matter involving the Holocaust.

An unsettling ending to an unsettling yet great movie.

5 Death of Billy Flynn - The Champ
6 Bambi's mother's death - Bambi

Lets expand that to every time a Disney parent dies. Which is in like, every movie.

Sure thing. Like the over-mentioned Mufasa's death among others.

7 Don't let me leave, Murph! - Interstellar

It's so sad how his daughter is telling her father about this ghost in her bookshelf. Her dad doesn't care. But years later, he's the one talking to her in the bookshelf.

8 Forrest visits Jenny's grave - Forrest Gump

It is very sad and moving.

9 Harry says goodbye - Armageddon
10 Widow Tweed abandoning Tod - The Fox and the Hound

Aww, this was so sad! I hate it when people or animals get left behind in movies.

The Contenders
11 Jack Dawson's death - Titanic

This was just about the only scene that broke me down. I am usually tough.

12 Zofia makes her choice - Sophie's Choice
13 Charlotte's death - Charlotte's Web
14 Marley's death - Marley and Me
15 Snow White's funeral - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
16 Hachi dies - Hachi: A Dog's Tale

Although this isn't the saddest part, it was sad, and Hachi waiting the whole time. And the whole movie was really sad- and one of the few movies that made me cry. It to me is one of the saddest movies ever. My mom cried too. She's a big crier.

17 Oliver the unwanted kitten - Oliver and Company
18 Titanic sinks - Titanic

The Titanic sinking scene in a nutshell:
"Baby I love you! I know we're going to drown but I love you! "
"I love you too! "
*insert overly dramatic kissing sequence here*
"Goodbye my love! "
"Goodbye! "
*insert overly dramatic ship sinking sequence here*

I think the saddest part was when Rose noticed Jack frozen.

Looks like everyone are waiting for their death.

That's not a sad part, the sad part is that Jack & Rose did not live happily ever after

19 Shirley's death - Madea's Big Happy Family
20 Rue's death - The Hunger Games

I am like the BIGGEST fan of the hunger games. I love rue so much that I could die for her. SHE'S AMAZING! When I watched her die I started to cry so badly that after that I was OSESSED WITH THE HUNGER GAMES!
"happy hunger games, and may the odds be ever in her favour.
# I feel sorry for Thresh (boy in rue's district) too and there families.

It was this death that sparked the revolution against The Capitol

21 Edward goes back - Edward Scissorhands
22 Townspeople tormenting Quasimodo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
23 Leslie's death - Bridge to Terabithia
24 The wolves killing Maa - Babe
25 Brooks commits suicide - The Shawshank Redemption
