  1. Does anyone know why HISHE changed the ending to their Frozen spoof?

  2. Only a handful of movies have ever made me cry and they are as follows, from wettest to driest: A.I., Vanilla Sky, Million Dollar Baby, The Fountain, Benjamin Button, T2, and Armageddon. That last one I’m not too proud of but I cried like a little punk when Bruce Willy killed himself, I was also only 14-years-old. But man does that last scene in A.I. still get me good though! Whenever I need a good cry I’ll put that on. It’s probably the most sad AND happy ending ever.

    • I’ve cried during What Dreams May Come, Life Of Pi and Cloud Atlas, the latter two because they connected with me spiritually and reaffirmed what I’d always believed.

  3. I´d add for the saddest movie deaths: Edward Furlongs in American History X (yeah I know theres already a “gangster death” on the list with a more endearing character but anyway), Dante´s Peak granny and the other similar death.. the bus driver from Volcano.
    Those are the ones I can think of now.


    I can’t believe they added ‘Rue’ from Hunger Games to that list. It was sad in the book, but much less so in the movie.

    They should have added Lindsey Brigman (Mary Mastrantonio) from ‘The Abyss’. Both when she dies, and when Bud (Ed Harris) is trying to bring her back.

    Another one is when Satine (Nicole Kidman) dies of consumption while Christian (Ewan McGregor) looks on.

    And, #1 on my list: I can’t believe they didn’t add the Sgt. Elias (William Defoe) death from Platoon. Maybe it just hit me particular hard because of my military service, but that was probably the most crying I ever did in a movie theater.
