That list actually kicked ass.

The opening scene from Finding Nemo is sheer brutality as a parent. Holy shiat, my eyes are watering just thinking about it.
 
2012-11-01 04:55:28 PM
will look later, but I imagine Clayton from Tarzan is top 3.
 
2012-11-01 04:58:17 PM
Emotionally painful? Yes.

"Heavy Metal" is full of physically painful animated deaths.

The opening sequence of "Up" made me cry like a little baby the first time I saw it.

The first time I saw it was on DVD. After that scene, I paused the damn thing and looked at my wife, who was in tears, and said, "What the &#@% are we watching?!"

Where's when Littlefoot's mom died in The Land Before Time? That one had me crying so hard, my dad had to carry me from the theater.

You do realize that every person on the list is a good guy right? This is about the most powerful deaths, the ones that affected you and elicited an emotional response.

Clayton's death was brutal, especially for an animated film (seeing the shadow hanging there), but it was not powerful or moving like Mufasa's death or the death of the Iron Giant.

Scar from Lion King would be another brutal death, but that caused cheers, not tears. Same with Judge Frollo in "Hunchback of Notre Dame"
 
2012-11-01 06:32:49 PM
No "Rats of NIMH"?

Because I could swear there were a couple of really effective deaths in there.

That is farking crushing. Hell, I watched that the other day and I teared up.
 
2012-11-01 06:41:01 PM
Oh, and the animated Transformers movie was farking horseshiat. On top of Prime, you have Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet and Wheeljack all dying in the first 5 minutes so that you can introduce Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Kup? Fark you.

And yes, that was my attitude in 1986 as well.

I lol'd. Is that bad?

25 years later and I still have to choke back tears when Optimus Prime dies.

What about that one movie, about the kids in Japan going hungry and eating marbles till one of them died.

Oh lord, Ray in Princess and the Frog. I thought I was the only one. I sobbed. And then for the next day or so I couldn't even talk about it without falling apart. I was trying to tell my husband about it (he's used to me) and I could only get out the word "Evangeline" and then burst into tears again. I didn't even like Ray all that much and what happened after he died was predictable, but it still messed me up.

/Do not watch Titanic with me
//I cried through all three hours of the touring production of Les Miserables. The movie this winter will kill me, I have no doubt

I can't watch that movie because of that scene, it hits really really close to home.

Hey guys, was someone talking about sad animated movies?

The headline is kind of misleading. The actual article is "10 Most Powerful Animated Deaths" not "10 harshest and most painful animated deaths."

And the list actually wasn't that bad. I'd throw Up and Iron Giant a little higher in the list, but for once the list wasn't horrible.

Hey that's the one. Her brother was an asshole, fed her marbles and let her eat mud cakes.

Iron Giant doesn't count because he didn't die.
 
2012-11-01 06:59:26 PM
No Littlefoot's mother? Lousy list. Optimus Prime's death being on there surprised me, but for many it was a soul-crushing experience (me included). I'd add Ironhide to the list.

"Such heroic nonsense."
*BLAM*

I think that series was exploited on video so much (there were what, 12 sequels?) that people forget the original was a theatrical release and was actually pretty damn good. It just gets forgotten a lot... and yeah, that was a rather well done death.

Aw, fark the other Autobots. They killed StarScream! After like 8 years of Megatron putting up with his shiat, it took him being reborn and getting Leonard Nemoy's voice that he finally shot the conniving bastard.

afmrick: What no Seymour from Futurama's Jurrasic Bark (S4E7)? That had me crying like a baby as well!


While I appreciate that episode (and it's a great farking episode), Luck of the Fryrish (where Fry finds out about his brother "stealing" his name) hits me a lot harder than it.

Now the one that will almost make me tear up with happiness is Leela finding out about her parents. The whole montage at the end just gets me.

I thought I was the only one that felt Luck of the Fryrish had more emotional impact than the dog episode.
 
2012-11-01 07:05:52 PM
I agree with Ray's death being higher than the Up opening...if only because the Up opening (while very powerful) involved human's who understood what was going on.

Ray was a) a helpless character and b) mentally unstable to some extent. He was an innocent that didn't see it coming...and I'm not quite even sure he fully understood what was going on until the very very end.

And, well, of course his death led to the second star above the castle, predicting the merging of Disney with Lucasfilm five years or so in the future.

Farking first ten minutes of Up.

That sequence makes me want to meet the people at Pixar who created it, shake their hands, congratulate them on a brilliant peice of work, and then punch them in the nuts.

I don't even need to watch the damn thing to get all emotional.

Nope, same thing here. Always liked and felt gutpunched more by Luck of the Fryish.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ that movie was an epic, brutal 'teaching moment' about mortality and how death has no prejudice. that movie is deserving of its number three, and probably deserves an asterisk number 1 for the sheer number of jaw dropping 'did they just kill...??!' moments in that movie.

Damn right. Especially Prowl. Even as a kid my attitude was "Hell no." That scene took the steam right out of the franchise for me. Wasn't bothered by Optimus dying after that.

FWIW, the article just reads "Animated Deaths" - the farktacular headline adds the "cinema" part but, you've nailed my top 3 - I may have to go watch "Up" tonight again.
