The Contenders: Page 6

101 March of the Penguins

I will never feel as sentimental toward a bunch of little birds as much as I did with MotP.

102 Night and Fog
103 Silenced (2011)
104 Cinderella (1950)
105 Dancer In the Dark

Honestly, where do you start? Bjork, in an astonishing performance, plays a destitute Czech immigrant who works like a dog to pay for an operation that will prevent her son succumbing to the same degenerative disease that is gradually sending her blind. Her only refuge from this is to pretend it is all a lavish Hollywood musical. Which kind of falls down when she's falsely accused of theft, murder and Communist sympathies.

When a blind woman in love with Hollywood musicals is going blind, she saves money up for an operation for er son, who suffers the same blinding disease. A cruel neighbor in need of money takes advantage of the blind woman and plunges her into severe legal trouble.

Three young, healthy, optimistic, even sarcastic men watching Dancer in the Dark, crying their eyes out first time they see this movie. Second time. Even third time. That's something.

How is this movie so low in this list

106 Finding Neverland

I was bawling like a little baby at the end the fist time I even cried at a kite flying scene also

Johnny Depp was great as Captain Jack, but I thought he did his best acting in this movie.

I have cried very much in the end of the movie.

107 P.S. I Love You

This is the saddest, but also most beautiful movie ever made. I always cry trough the whole movie but still I see it over and over again in some masochistic way.

This is one of the extreme few of movies that made me tear up. The feelings of loss in this movie are more than words can explain. Gerard Butler played a wonderful role as well as Hilary Swank. It was marvelous and congratulations.

This far, this movie is the only one that made me cry for like.. A lot. Literally. I tried watching some other recommended movies but I didn't cry as bad as this one. This movies doesn't have a perfect ending for me, but it completely heart-touching one..

Saddest movie ever!

108 Water For Elephants

Beautiful story! You know a films going to be great when it starts off with an elderly person narrating their story! If you liked titanic and the notebook, you'll love this.

Great movie. Not the saddest movie I've seen, but definitely one of the best!

I watch this movie one year ago just amazing

109 Boys Don't Cry

Watched this with my girlfriend last night... When they shot Brandon I don't think I've ever cried so hard... A beautiful tragic love story...

Based on a tragic true story. If this doesn't tug your heartstrings I'd check your pulse.

The only movie to have ever actually made me cry

110 Ramona and Beezus

One of the most underrated movies ever made

God, my sister and I didn't have the best relationshp at the time. When we saw this movie, we hugged and burst into tears.

111 Hotel Rwanda

The scene when he's driving down the road and it's full of dead bodies is truly upsetting

This story is so sad because it is true. Never forget the Rwandan genocide. The things that happen in this movie are so horrible it's hard to watch. And it's not even nearly as tragic as the real think

Watching innocent people die in the middle of streets with President Clinton not helping made me wanna cry. "I promise I wont be Tutsi anymore" :'(

114 Godzilla vs Destoroyah

I cried watching this movie. Godzilla is my all time favorite character. And his death made me cry.

Just the most emotional, heart-breaking trauma that is invoked by this film should make this number 1!

The scene when Godzilla dies is really sad and his son also died too

His son is not dead. He just come back to life and become the next Godzilla. - asantalo

This movie sucks and everyone is dumber for having watched it.

115 Ant-Man Ant-Man is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, Ant-Man's first appearance was in Tales to Astonish #27. V 1 Comment

117 Lady and the Tramp

The scene at the dog pond gets me every time! As well as the part when she chews out Tramp for not being there at the pond and tells him she doesn't care if they do pick him up. The sequel was sad too.

118 The Terminal V 1 Comment
119 Boyz 'N the Hood

I am easy to tear up during films but this is the first movie that I actually had tears streaming down my face and I had to grab a tissue. This is a great movie but you should watch it alone, you will cry... A lot.

I watched this one time. Too realistic for me. Sad life some people live. Much sadness for Morris Chestnut's character.

I had to run out the room.  If you're gonna watch this, watch it on your own because you will cry. The actors are really good, you get involved. This is one of the best films I have ever seen. The fact that it's true really gets to you.

120 The Last Samurai

So sad... Especially when he gets beaten up in the rain, cried buckets

The part in the end where the Chinese master dies when he sticks the sword in himself made my cry so bad and I felt depressed for a couple more hours.

So sad especially the soundtrack

Such a touching film. From the scene in the rain to the final battle where Katsumoto dies. The one scene that really got me though was the final scene where Algren goes to see the emperor and gives him Katsumoto's sword. I had to tr so hard not to cry
