...to have just one thing, just one thing in your whole life that you do that makes you proud of yourself, I don't think that's too much for anybody to ask...

HOLY SHIT! The Mayor and I are in total agreement with this one! And I ain't afraid to admit it, I fucking bawled my eyes out at the end of that movie. And I dont cry. No...really... I dont. But I did that one time, and it was fucking Niagra Falls!

Oh hell, I cried at the end of Return of the King and I've read the friggin' book 20 times!

Pretty sad I know, that's why I never watch Cold Case (the show I've nicknamed "You Bastards") cause after I get sucked in to watching and the final montage begins I'm reaching for the kleenex saying "You Bastards!"

Here's another good depressing one. My Life as a Dog. How about anything by Bergman. Let's not forget the documentary "Night and Fog". Gave me nightmares.

I watched Dead Man Walking and Leaving Las Vegas back to back on a Friday/Saturday night one weekend.

I nearly didn't make it to Sunday.

Sad and depressing definitely not the same.

Sad: Something that evokes the emotion of sadness such as the ending of Old Yeller.

Depressing: Anything that takes away your will to live or see more movies. Like Mystic River or Ingmar Bergman.

Depressing = Old Yeller (Who didnt cry when Old Yeller died?)

Sad = Showgirls (Only movie I ever saw that actually made naked vegas show girls ugly/disgusting....sad, so very sad...I couldnt watch it through to the end, it was that bad).

Is everything inverted in Canada?
Many movies make me cry, a few make me feel helpless. The latter are the depressing ones.

One that I found dpressingas a teenager is Pink Floyd: The Wall. Watched it with a bunc of friends. Afterward we all felt like jumping out of the window. Have not seen the miovie since.

The taste of your voice reveals what before was unknown.
Do you ever dream of the world like I do?

Did someone ever seen "Trees Lounge" with Steve Buscemi (featuring Micheal Imperioli and Anthony LaPaglia too)? Really depressing

When I first watched Fried Green Tomatoes on tv when I was a kid, I completely broke down and started crying when Jessica Tandy's character died. I couldn't finish watching it. Ten years later I saw it on tv again and decided to watch the whole thing this time. Imagine my shock when I learned she didn't actually die.

I still found it absolutely fascinating the first time I saw it. At college on a big screen no less. It was a great inside look warts and all. At the end I was a little sad but couldn't help but be even more enthusiastic about the Beatles as it turns out they don't all walk on water after all.

great movie, filmed in my neighborhood.....the 'lounge' is a real place.


My wife generally avoids all films with either Harvey Keitel or Steve Buscemi, and especially any movie that features them both.
