I answered a Reddit question, about which movie fucked you up emotionally. Here's my answer. Tell me yours!

Also, honourable mentions to "Hachi: A Dog's Tale," when his owner meets him in the afterlife, and just says his name, prompting Hachi to run up to him. And "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," for taking me back to Hogwarts one last time. I didn't mention these in my answer, and I don't want to edit it again.

Oh, and Stoick's death. When Toothless is unaware of what happened, and Hiccup, for the first time scared of his best friend, pushes him away. Toothless just looks so confused and hurt, his noices and eyes are soul wrenching, and the smile he gives when Hiccup breaks the Alpha's hold on him, is just precious.

"I won't leave you, I won't let you go!"
"You'd never hurt him... you'd never hurt me." - Hiccup (The first quote is from a deleted sequence).

Ugh whyyyyy didn't I include these?! Especially HTTYD2.

Now onto the answer!

(The *s are there because they format text into italics on reddit. The # is there because it makes the text bold).

(Also, apologies for any mistakes in the quotations).

"The Plague Dogs." That movie fucked me up big time. I was silent for ages after it finished.

*"there it is; our island! Stay with me, I'll take you there" - Rowf*

I cry every time I read "The Fault in Our Stars." I shed one tear at the film, but it's when I listened to Ed Sheeran's "All Of the Stars" that I bawled. I saw it as an allegory of how they may meet again, how they were doomed from the start, but not for the typical reasons:

*" So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home" - Ed Sheeran.*

The song has so much meaning. Ed is a true poet. TFiOS movie is a great adaptation, I just prefer the book!

I already mentioned "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" in a comment thread below. I was shaken for a week. Such a good movie. There was a kid's party there at the screening I went to. I'll never forget their reaction when the Nazi hit the Jewish slave. The opening theme by James Horner is haunting, and the last shot of the chamber door, of the father on his knees...

(Quotes from the book)

*" ...Despite the mayhem that followed, Bruno found that he was still holding Shmuel's hand in his own and nothing in the world would have persuaded him to let go."*

*"Of course this all happened a long time ago and nothing like that could ever happen again.
        Not in this day and age." - John Boyne.*

(I must try reading it again. I didn't care much for it when I tried before).

"Life is Beautiful," when the father is goose-stepping to make his son, who's hidden, laugh. He's then led out of sight, and shot by a guard. The Boy then is reunited with his mom, convinced that he and his dad won the tank.

Movies from my childhood:

"The Lion King:" a kid, heir to the throne, sees his dad killed in front of him, acknowledges the body, only to be convinced by his evil gay uncle that he's at fault. He grows up into a young adult, shirking his royal duties, not being able to tell his friends of his past. Even if it didn't happen, the guilt a young heart must feel, carrying the alleged responsibility of a death from childhood into adulthood, knowing he abandoned a kingdom, and not being able to tell a soul... it's sober and heart breaking. Not to mention when he finds out the truth...

*" You said you'd always be there for me! But you're not... and its because of me. It's my fault... it's my fault." - Simba*

"My Girl:" a girl afraid of death losing her only true friend,  when she's not fully able to come to terms with the concept herself.

*"Do you wanna go tree climbing, Thomas J? His face hurts! And Where are his glasses?! He can't see without his glasses! Put his glasses on! Put on his glasses! He was going  to be an acrobat!" - Vada*

"My Dog Skip:" this hurts more now, having an elderly terrier myself. The opening theme gives me the damn feels.

*"I... got a transatlantic call one day. 'Skip died,' Daddy said. 'Me and mama wrapped him up in your baseball jacket. Buried him under our elm tree,' he said. But that weren't  totally true; for he really lay buried in my heart." - Willie Morris.*

"Fluke": a spiritual film about a man who dies and comes back as a dog. He goes to find his wife and son from his previous life. Needless to say, they don't know who he is, and not everything is as it seems.

"Old Yeller:" A young man must kill his best friend.

*"No, mamma... He's my dog; I'll do it." - Travis*

"All Dogs go to Heaven": only in adulthood is this even worse, for the little girl who voiced Anne-Marie, was murdered by her dad before the film even came out.

*"You know, goodbyes aren't forever."
"Goodbye Charlie, I love you!"
"Yeah... I love you too..." - Charlie and Anne-Marie.*

Don Bluth cried while editing the film, because he was so find of the little girl, who also voiced Ducky in his film "The Land Before Time." Her gravestone bears the quote, "yup! Yup! Yup!"

"Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey": when Shadow crests that hill and your heart just combusts,  and he runs and Peter runs and UGH.

The ending of "The Fox and the Hound," for how pure and subtle and amazing it is.

And, even though it's not a film, "The Last Guardian" fucked me up.

*"isso, issoy"* 😢

Hey, I was just wondering if you would consider being a contributor on the IrishInklings group? I could do with a hand kickstarting it and getting it off the ground. No worries if your too busy with your own groups!
