Saddest part in a movie?
Armageddon, when Owen Wilson (aka: Oscar) died.

Sean Bean, every movie.

The scene in The Shawshank Redemption where Brooks hangs himself gets me every time.

And, although not a move, the whole episode "Jurassic Bark" for Futurama. I have never cried when watching a cartoon...until I saw that damn episode. I might tear up thinking about it.

Yeah the Brooks one was kind of harsh, as for jurassic bark... and the cruelty to animals commercials. I can see how that would be sad. As for not flinching for human suffering, the large amounts of suffering in the world causes us to be apathetic towards them unless they're dramatized in some way like say 9/11 or the holocaust. So much drama. 2,000 americans died in the events of 9/11. Over 100,000 civilians (maybe even 200,000 since my statistics are old) have died in the middle east as a direct result of this war, that's not including those with limbs blown off or other serious injuries. Many people just shrug off the 100,000 for the 2,000. Why? Because the 2,000 has been dramatized, and people are expected to 'feel sad' otherwise they're bad people.

Ah pardon, I got a little carried away, I was just trying to explain why you feel sadder for animals than humans. Sorry about getting lost in thought like that.

RE: Saddest part in a movie?
I just watched the Star Trek Next Generation episode where Sarek (Spock's Vulcan father) loses his mind. I cried real tears.

I think I was depressed for a week after watching Million Dollar Baby.

E.T. still makes me cry.

Seven Pounds.

And, though I might have to join the Rainbow Parade when I admit this, Beaches made me cry.

Yeah that was pretty sad, probably would have made me cry if I was a christian still or believed in some form of afterlife. Thank goodness the dead stay dead though and don't haunt us. They would know truths that even I would have never fathomed before, from the beginning of our species.

RE: Saddest part in a movie?
Hah, that's an interesting point I haven't ever thought about. Why are all ghosts fairly recent? Wouldn't it be cool to see a cro-magnon ghost? Yeah, I live in the wrong part of the world, but I would think that caveman ghost sightings would be world news if they were happening.

Would a caveman ghost be wearing clothing? I mean, when people see ghosts they're always dressed in something, almost as if their clothing died with them and they're somehow clad in the spirit of their dead wardrobe. Would cavemen dress their ghosts?

Would caveman poltergeists rattle chains that they lacked the technology to make when they lived?

Heck, forget cavemen, I haven't ever even heard of Sumerian ghosts or Roman ghosts or Babylonian ghosts or Aztec ghosts or any other ancient civilization.

Do ghosts have expiration dates? No pun intended, since they're already "expired". Maybe ghosts have a short half-life?

Oh don't worry, the ancients had 'ghosts', in fact if you've ever read Shakespeare you'll meet Julius Ceasar's apparition. Plus the Greeks did believe in Hades which was a 'ghost like' afterworld. In the Odyssey, Odysseus actually meets Achilles in hades which would be the equivalent to meeting a ghost since he was already dead and everything. So yes, the ancients did have 'ghosts' we just don't hear about them today because they're outdated and not of our close relatives for charlatans to make money off of Wink

REALLY SHOULD BE CALLED THE POE MASTER RIGHT NOW! It would SO FIT!

I suppose Purgatory was stolen from the greek afterlife of Hades, just like Angels were originally a Roman Pagan thing if I recall correctly. Purgatory being the equivalent of the 'ghost world' as they are not in heaven or hell. As for exorcisms, they're really nothing new, as much as I hate to quote the bible, there is the story of Jesus exorcising the demons from the man into the pigs.
