"depressing" movies
« on: January 26, 2011, 06:07:34 pm »
Ok so how many people out there for some reason have an attraction to depressing movies or TV shows.  I personally love those types of movies.  My favorite movie/book is The Road.  Its about a boy and a father without names who live in a waste land.  It was written by Cormack McCarthney
Remember that time with that thing when it ran to that place that was in that city and then exploded.  There was also that time when the other guy with that birth mark who killed that one but the other day when that thing happened to that person.

do you remember?

That is the case with 90% of Steinbeck's work, just try The Winter of Our Discontent for epic depression.

Grave of the fireflies.

It was a japenese animation set during world war 2 about the struggle of two orphaned children.
I remeber after I watched it I sat down at my desk and just stared at the wall thinking about what I had just saw.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Based off the brilliant 2006 book. I know the ending is predictable, but I felt that nearly the whole film was depressing. It's about an extremely sheltered boy called Bruno, who is taken away from everything to move to Auschwitz I, but because his Dad runs the place. He eventually makes friends with one of the boys on the camp........ I won't say anything else because of spoilers. I could slightly relate to it, Bruno realises he was sheltered and tried to find out as much about the area as possible; I was like this when I was younger.

I would recommend it, but the ending, while predicable, is extremely abrupt and quite disturbing.

oh and the ending to the series of books that starts with ' the amber spyglass' or something along those lines, that really got me depressed for a couple of weeks after i had finished it =/
Kinda wish authors could make two versions of books with sad endings so i could actually have a happy ending were everythings a-ok

On a different note i would love to have one of those animal things, forget the name, was a long time ago, going around with me and bieng linked to me, would make me veeeeeeeery happy.

Moon - ok, has a "kind of" happy ending...but Jesus, not to ruin it for anyone - as it's awesome, there's some moments in it where it's just KICK THE CHARACTERS WHILE THEY'RE DOWN! HARDER! WITH A BIG BOOT!

Haha, I get the feeling they were just dancing and is unaware of the purpose of the lock.




But uh, Marley and Me. The movie itself isn't depressing, but oh god the ending.

You were thinking of Daemons,  the little creatures linked to you, and I would love one as well. The series is 'His Dark Materials' by Philip Pullman, comprising Northern Lights (Published as The Golden Compass in North America), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. I myself have only read Northen lights, but I found the end (no spoilers) as well as the whole insidious 'seperation' scheme, to be quite distressing. Possibly why I haven't started the others.

P.S. If I were to put a movie that always made me sad, it would be The Iron Giant. It made me cry more than once.

Schindler's list wins the most depressing movie award.  The ending almost made me cry.   

Especially the red coat part.
