After becoming a parent, I've gained so much feels. Any piece of media that portrays my worst fears has the potential to make me tear up.As a kid I used to snicker whenever my mother would tell me about how she saw the Pet Sematary movie after I was born and cried when the boy was killed because of her new perspective as a parent. When my son was born I thought "wouldn't it be funny if..." and watched it myself.
... sorry for always snickering, mom. The movie was not good and I still couldn't do it. Couldn't even watch the scene. Just shut it off and cried onto my baby. Can't even think about trying again now, either, the child actor looks too much like my son. The projection is real.
Summer Wars was so exhilarating but had such gut punching moments at times. I saw it for the second time with a group and brough my cousin along. Everyone was crying but my cousin straight up howled in pain when the grandma died. I knew there was gonna be some dramatic scenes at first but it pretty mich bitch slapped me across the face when the tear jerker moments came around.
Wolf Children and Grave of the Fireflies just made me depressed.
It's a great movie and devastatingly sad. It didn't make me cry but it made me lie in bed with a woebegone expression for a long time, which is much worse than a quick cry. I'd rather not watch it again, it's a real gut punch.
Pretty much this. My brothers wailed over it, though, when I happened upon them watching it. Can't imagine how they'll react to Barefoot Gen tbh.
Grave of the Fireflies is one of the most beautifully haunting films I’ve ever seen. It’s often described as “the best movie I never want to see again.” I definitely think it’s required viewing, its anti-war message is timeless. When nations go to war, it’s the innocent who suffer the most.
This part where the sister cries and the brother tries to cheer her up always did it for me.
While that did hurt what destroyed me was elicia not understanding what had happened to her father andIt's raining
