Default Saddest movies of all time.

I know we're all tough and we never cry or nothin. But there's gotta be one movie that gets to you. Mine is Of Mice and Men. I can't even watch the ending without getting choked up. Never have been able to.

In school we had to watch it in class and luckily the bell rang right before the end of the movie. I could already feel a knot in my throat when the bell rang. I skipped school the next day so I wouldn't cry in class. I had a feeling I was going to.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape gets my vote for the second saddest. Anything that has to do with people with disabilities gets to me whether in movies or real life. Always have been that way.

The Passion of the Christ and the new Chosen series make me cry.... It's hard to comprehend/understand what Jesus did for you and I but both of these shows make it about as real as it can get.

I saw The Passion of the Christ in the theater. I would have to agree with this one.

Just a little fact about Darlene Cates, the mom in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. She was a Texan. Born in Borger and raised in Dumas.

Seeing the funeral procession for Chris Kyle at the end of American Sniper got to me. And also the end of Saving Private Ryan. Different kind of sad though. Sad that some of the greatest Americans who ever lived are gone. Mixed with pride that such men ever lived and represented America.

I watched one done by Jack Ingram not long ago. My dad got me the Lane Frost instructional video and I'd watch it every day. Mostly after I'd get thrown from one of our roping steers and wonder why I had any interest in doing that in the first place. One day he came home and said, "did you know the guy from your video died a couple of years ago?" Talk about rough. That was a few years before the movie came out.

My buddy and I watched this with two girls (one was my future wife) on a double date. We all still talk about how sad that movie was.

Outside of what has been mentioned above, as a dog owner, Marley and Me is a gut puncher. A sad reminder that even though our best friends aren't with us long, to them, its a lifetime.

Read the book. It goes into horrific detail about what the survivors of X-ray went through following the engagement. Possibly one of the most chaotic and tragic experiences American soldiers ever experienced. Iíve watched the movie several times and go back to the book occasionally as it is difficult to wrap my mind around what they went through.

Equally depressing is the movie Stalingrad.

Marley and Me gets me every time. For a while it was my kids' favorite movie and was basically watched on repeat. I got to the point where I had to leave the room for the ending every time.

Back when my wife could con me into going to movies, she conned me into going to see Marley and me. To be honest, I don't know how sad it was! When it started to turn, I asked her "is this dog about to die?" and got up and I walked out of that sucker.

Any movie with a dog dying seems to get to me, Old Yeller, Where the Red Fern Grows, etc.r
