50 worst crying scenes

Not all are "worst" because they were so bad. Some were "worst" because they were so good!

Worst because they were good?

Namely, too hard to watch because the viewer would end up crying as well. Too good because they were so intense.

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

I had a look through the list. I did think the word 'unwatchable' was perhaps the wrong word to use.

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

It looks like some of the scenes on the list are considered "bad" because the crying is badly acted, while others are considered "bad" because the crying has such an emotional impact.  I was relieved to see that the famous Schindler's List crying scene, which I love, is in the second category.

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

I agree, "unwatchable" was being used in two contexts: really bad (Stallone) and gut-wrenching.
"Worst" is a poor choice for the title, though, as it really does imply a list full of Stallone-type crying.
BUT...They were spot on in their praise of Lethal Weapon, Captain Phillips, The Impossible and The Mist, among others.  
Just realized The Mist hasn't been posted here yet.  Taking care of that ASAP.

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

I don't think Stallone is a bad crier...even if many persons might disagree with me. His crying in Rocky had great impact on me at the time and it showed a wider range of emotions. There's the single tear scene in Rocky 4 when he remembers his mentor, the sobbing one in Rocky 3 i guess and the more emotional one when his baby is born in Rocky 2 ( ?), the one when he mourns his dead wife in Rocky Balboa. The only crying scene that makes me wonder if it's real is the one in Rambo that gave birth to a whole lot of parodies..

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

I think it's the Rambo one everyone remembers - it's just so over-the-top. I confess, it made me cringe.

Re: 50 worst crying scenes

Yeah, I mostly meant Rambo when using Stallone as a negative example.
