    Saddest film ending 17th Mar 17 at 11:54 PM
    Titanic. After all this time no matter how many times I see it on TV it gets me every time. Rose lived to die very old in her bed like jack predicted but she died on the submarine in that same spot he died in then they were reunited. I think even a hard hearted person would find this emotional.

    You do know it was only make believe don't you?
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Do you know, I've never seen Titanic.

    I didn't think I could stand seeing so many sad ends, especially as the incident was true, even if the main love story wasn't.

    Same reason for never having seen Watership Down.





    One film that unexpectedly caused me to weep buckets was Silent Running.

    The memory of that little robot, all alone after the human died, trying to tend to the last remaining Earth plants in the spaceship for all eternity was just too much for my sensibilities.

    ETA:
    They had the opportunity to get extra gas/petrol on the journey, but didn't.
    I guess the new ending for the film required them to be stranded out on the road, but I still didn't like it.
    I guess I couldn't empathise with them deciding to 'end it all' that way.

    Yes, we are. As a parent I thought it was horrific. But he thought at the time that he was doing the right thing. I hope in similar circumstances I'd fight to the end.

    Apparently Stephen King preferred the film's ending to his own and wished that he'd thought of it himself.

    Me and my cousin first saw this film together when were were around 12-13 and we both cried at the end! I watched it again recently and it still makes me blub.

    I found "The Elephant Man" unbearably sad, worse than the end is the part where he shows Hannah Gordon the picture of his mother. Just thinking about it makes me all teary!

    I can't watch Titanic without shouting at Rose during Jack's final moments. If the selfish old bat had moved over, he'd still be here!

    The Snowman.....the version where he melted, and the sun came out and dried him up......that's worse than internal combustion.
