  • I didn't cry, cry but I felt myself choke up a little and kind held back some emotion in "Inside Out" and in "Up"

    In "Inside Out" when the little girl comes home after running away and sadness take control of the "brain" console and the girl (was it Riley?) just starts crying in her mom and dad's arms.

    In Up when the old man gets out the Album his wife had been keeping through her life and he feels that she never got to do all of those adventures she had planned and he was surprised to see all of the photos of their life together and then she had the note in there about thanks for the adventure now go have one of your own and he realizes after feeling he'd failed her that she considered their life together her adventure.

    They aren't sad just by themselves, in a vacuum but with the backstory lead up to these moments they are pretty sad. I know

  • When Ellie died, I was bawling. And Dumbo, I saw it as an adult, had no idea it was so sad. Sobbed for a while the way they treated his poor mom.

    aww these are so sad, why did I click on this :'c

    Also the fox and the hound, when she just left him. nooo old lady, noo.

    Tbh, I dunno why but I disliked Simba, little poopoohead had to be annoying and run off. Disney taught me if you don't do what your parents say, you can cause the start of events that get them betrayed, thrown off a cliff, and rammed under the hooves of a 1000 wildebeest.

  • I remember wishing Bambi would avenge his mother’s death. I have to say that the movie up surprised me, I didn’t expect it to be so emotional until that one scene.

  • I can't really feel bad for bambis mom.
    My mom grew up poor in a rural area, and the fact is a deer fills a freeze and not only saves money to the tune of up to 800 to 1000 dollars, its also healhier than what they could afford.

  • The part of UP that really got to me was when they tried to have kids and either Ellie was barren or had a miscarriage. I thought it was a miscarriage.

    • That, and not make a single original plot line ever.
      Walt Disney wasn’t a genius. He was a thief.

    • @VaIiant Well I wouldn't go quite that far. When Walt Disney was alive, I don't believe he ever failed to credit the authors of the books his movies were based on. Plus he created Mickey Mouse and all of the corresponding characters. Once he died, a lot of his vision died with him. Also, all big movie studios ruin the books and characters they bring to the big screen. That's not unique to Disney Studios. Have you ever read "Cannery Row" And also seen the movie? Perfect example.

  • Toy Story 3 is the only movie that ever made me cry.

  • Love your Take. I've seen almost all the movies that you've mentioned and loved them! I've cried everytime I watched.
    Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney movie. Nothing can replace it! by the way I was thinking of watching Hunchback of Notre Dame again tomorrow before I read your take and smiled when you wrote about it.
