WARNING: There will be tears!
There are a helluva lot of mediocre movies out there; movies that you’ll probably have completely forgotten less than 24 hours after watching them because they left absolutely no impression. Then there are those movies that claw deep into your chest and triumphantly rip out your heart Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom style. Today’s Top List Thursday pays tribute to the latter – films that contain some of the saddest moments of all time. I guarantee you will have choked up at least once by the time you reach the end of this post.
P.S. Make sure to send the till slips for your bulk tissue and handkerchief purchases to The Movies c/o The Foundry Complex, P.O Box 14954, Wadeville, Gauteng, 1422.
For the record, the following films also made the shortlist for heartbreaking moments:
My Girl, E.T., King Kong, Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral, the Clint Eastwood double of Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino, the Brad Pitt double of Legends of the Fall and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Watership Down, Dumbo, The Iron Giant, The Fox and the Hound, The Sixth Sense, Cast Away, Life is Beautiful, My Sister’s Keeper, The Pianist, Schindler’s List and The Champ. (Out of interest, this last one actually contains the “scientifically proven” saddest film scene of all time.
