The fact, Ian Curtis died so young, is very sad indeed. He would have had a lot more to offer. A true genius!

Very sad what is going on in Juarez. Please watch this movie.

253 Simon Birch

Had to watch this in 9th grade was really fun and sad we all thought it was based on this short story called The scarlet ibis but after that I look online and realize it actually based on John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany but I heard the book Simon is named Owen and the destiny is completely different. Critics called this movie overly mushy tries way to hard to pull at the heart strings come on those critics are heartless!

What a tear jerker, I was glad there was nobody else around when I watched this I wasn't just tearful I was sobbing; truly a moving movie, that's helps people to understand that despite how you can be received from others for not being what one would class as normal is truly beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to this movie

Such an amazing movie, if only more people knew about it, it would be on so many people's favorite movies list. One of my favorites ever, I'm pretty sure I cry every time I watch it.

This made me cry in class straight up, and I'm a hard ass dude, the entire movie is just so well drawn out, and the story is moving and touching as hell.

254 One True Thing

Meryl Streep gives one of her best performances as a mother stricken with cancer and her dealing with her family in her final days. This is based on a true story. Just heartbreaking.

255 The Fountain

This movie is like concentrated sadness of 90 minutes and it shows perfectly someones emotions when you're about to lose someone that you love and the absolute sadness when you're actually losing him/her. It shows how a man does everything possible to reunite with his loved one even giving his life, because "death is the road to awe".

Sums up the feeling of losing someone so perfectly. Accompanied with an incredible soundtrack that captures every mood perfectly, this film is truly art as opposed to entertainment. An emotionally fulfilling experience.

More than sad portrays the essence fear of dying, or losing important people of our lives. In the end, being in peace with the inevitable.

I Love this movie! But it's so sad. the man wants to cure cancer and when he finnaly got the cure, his wife dies of cancer :( he was too late and was more focused on his work than the last days with his wife. it's so sad but totally a must have seen movie!

256 Manchester by the Sea

It is a rare accomplishment to create a film that lodges itself in a certain part of your brain--maybe not the front but somewhere in the back--where it will remain forever. THis film will never leave you. It takes a story ripe for cheesy been there done that melodrama but by populating the script with real characters behaving as real characters do, it elevates the material to something that is nothing short of a masterpiece. Most films dealing with this material are of characters overcoming their grief but that is not how the real world works. Grief as strong as Lee's is with you forever. Lee does not live how to live without it but how to live in spite of it, to find something in his nephew to renew purpose and to keep him chugging along the road and in the final moments of the film, when we realize this it is a moment of subtle beauty. This is a devastating film but buried in it is a kernel of hope that reawakens you to all the beautiful parts of your life and as the world yo uexit ...more

This movie has a moment that I'll never forget. I audibly gasped when it happened. Devastating.

It actually sucked. No screw THIS overrated trash. Meh I should've wrote more but that's all I can say. 1/10. - AlphaQ

257 Selena

Such an underrated film. An amazing adaptation of the life of the most beautiful, and inspirational singer ever to have walked upon this earth. It was because of this film, my love for Selena intensified a whole lot more, and I feel blessed for that. The music scenes are so alike Selena's actual performances, especially when they ranged from new, to old songs that Selena sung. Best movie about the best celebrity ever. Rest in Paradise Selena. April 16, 1971 - March 31, 1995. My inspiration and so much more.

This movie was Beautiful all the way through, but when the enfing comes that's when the tears come, that scene just tears me up inside. One of the best movies I've seen...

One of the only movies that made me cry :( - idolangelx13

This should be number one especially for the fact that it's based on a true story. Such a beautiful soul a young life taken away so cruelly

This movie grew sadder and sadder until the ending where it was so unbearably sad it almost hurt.

I absolutely love this film. It makes me want to make movies like this. If you haven't. Seen it you should.

If you've ever experienced love with someone you barely knew, you'd love this movie too.

259 Rosewood

I had shut this movie out of my mind. It was too... too much to take

260 The Mist

The most disturbing ending too any movie. Ever. Made we want to cry, and I'm a guy

The most depressing ending. Horrible.

The ending is so upsetting, I literally SCREAMED! The main character kills his family seconds before they would have been saved. Horrible!

How on earth is disaster movie more sad than this
