They say crying cleanses the soul. Well prepare to have your soul thoroughly rinsed out. Movies have the power to touch our lives in ways that other mediums can't. From genuine tearjerkers like The Green Mile to superhero movies like Batman Begins ("Why do we fall?") cinema has the magic to pull at our heartstrings and open up our tear ducts with both joy and sadness. Considering this author has cried at everything from Transformers ("I wish to stay with the boy") to Transformers: Age of Extinction ("Why are they still making these terrible films?") selecting just 10 was a very difficult task.
Below is our list of the top 10 Saddest Movie Moments Of All Time. I hope you enjoy!
10 The Notebook (2004)
9 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
8 Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
7 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
6 The Elephant Man (1980)
Enduring a lifetime of torment because of his deformities, John Merrick is given his cruel, titular nickname.
5 Rocky Balboa (2006)
4 Up (2009)
3 The Lion King (1994)
2 The Iron Giant (1999)
1 Toy Story 3 (2010)
Perhaps the finest movie trilogy of all time. The Toy Story series was a constant to an entire generation who grew up with Woody, Buzz and the gang. The finale looked to be heading towards a bleak conclusion as the toys find themselves on a conveyor belt leading to an incinerator. You just know they will get free, but when Lotso abandons them a slight doubt begins to creep into your mind. When the toys accept their fate and begin to join hands you are in full blown tears convinced that you will see your childhood burned alive in front of your eyes. Thankfully, the aliens have found “The Claw”.
