    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.

    Inn of the 6th Happiness, when they are walking away singing "This old man". Finally saw the film in full a couple of years ago, first time I saw it, I was about 6 and vividly remember standing behind the couch in floods of tears.

    I know I am getting old, but there is no need for my consultant to age me by another 10 years 😉

    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.

    I haven't watched these either. Watership Down probably would make me cry but Titanic....na, just can't stand Di Caprio

    I can't think off hand of any film that upset me enough to draw tears

    The saddest one I've seen in the last couple of years was American Sniper.

    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.

    Yes, I can see why he would like it. It is more of a 'grabber'.
    And still gets across the theme of carrying on 'whatever' -as you never know what might happen/turn up. The theme of hope.

    The novella was an ending of 'pushing on', with some vague hope.
    But the film ending turned it upside down, to show how 'giving up' can be disastrous.

    Taxi Driver..

    I found it very moving when De Niro's 'Travis' was regarded as a Hero after killing all the pimps and johns and rescuing young Jodie Foster.

    This film has had a big influence on my life...Not only did I do 'The Knowledge' and become a Taxi Driver but I also kill pimps and johns whenever the opportunity arises

    Going back a few years, Philadephia. I thought Tom Hanks was really good in that. He's a pretty versatile actor, though I've not seen a film of his for a long time now.

    I've never seen the Titanic either. Can't really see the point given that we all know how it ends!

    As a sensitive wimp that I am, I think I was tearful for the whole of the second half of the film.

    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!

    Les Miserables (Hugh Jackman version). Although I suspect it was more because I was watching it shortly after the death of a grandparent.

    Another one who's not seen Titanic on the grounds that I already knew what was going to happen.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    I watched Watership Down when I was 8 and I've never forgotten the horrific bits and have never watched it since. The Green Mile is a really emotional film

    Carlitos way has a very sad ending. I love this film, I am not a big fan of gangster films but I love this one.

    Such a tragic accident. You have to be careful in such places.
