4 Animated Movies That Make People Cry The Most

4 Animated Movies That Make People Cry The Most

There is something seriously comforting about watching a good animated movie. Perhaps it brings back memories of your childhood, reminiscing about sweets long gone from the modern shelves, and feeling eager anticipation about the experience you are about to have with your family or friends. Watching animated films is often a special time where you experience joy with your own children as they embark on adventures that fill them with wonder.

Whatever the reason, animated films are incredible. When we find ourselves engrossed in a good animated film, we are in no way desensitized to the range of emotions they provoke, equaling any other motion film, animated or not. If we are all honest with ourselves, there has definitely been a number of animations that have made us weep for the screen. Here are 4 favourite tear-jerkers!

Finding Nemo

    OH THE HEART STRINGS. Finding Nemo has got to be one of the greatest, loveliest, most hilariously animated films of all time. There are so many things about this film that, depending on your sensitivity level, could evoke a tear or two. Dory’s friendship is beautiful, the magical underwater scenes are heart-achingly stunning, but in the end it’s got to be a tie between the **SPOILER ALERT** ending scene of father and son being happily reunited after their journey, and the opening scene, where all of the fish eggs are destroyed except for a single survivor: NEMO.

    The Lion King

      The circle of life! It moves us all! For a film that was made in the 90s – over twenty years ago! – The Lion King still has the power to move us all. Again, it is hard to dictate as to where the point is in such a powerfully animated movie that is responsible for the waterworks.

      However, it could very well be when Simba goes down to find Mufasa and tries to pull him to get up, so they can go home. Plenty of tears can be seen streaming down an audience’s face as Simba is suddenly all alone, calling out for help where no one can hear him. A timeless tragedy. Long live Simba.

      Bambi

        I think this goes without saying that the 1942 Disney film Bambi is one of the longest-loved animated films, with one of the saddest scenes of all time. In fact there are other films, non-animated, that have certainly (comically) mentioned this scene as affecting them deeply in their childhood.

        This scene in Bambi, is when Bambi’s mother is shot and killed as she and her daughter run for safety from a hunter and his shotgun. “Faster Bambi! Faster! Don’t look back!”  her mother says, and Bambi doesn’t. In fact, she keeps running, finally reaches safety, then looks back, only to find out that her mother couldn’t make it. Devastating.

        Up!

        Up-2009-DI1

          This beautiful 3D computer animated film touches on the heart strings when, unlike the other animal films above, we are invited to think about the human condition of escapism. The lessons here touch on how to deal with life when it becomes hard- or in the protagonists case, when we lose our great love. In a beautiful collage of time, we see the main character, Carl, move through his life, reach old age, before tenderly saying goodbye to the woman he loved his entire life. If that doesn’t get your tear ducts smarting, we don’t know what will!

          All in all, animated films have a running theme: LOVE. Love of a parent, spouse, child, or hero; animated films show us that it is the one thing that connects us and warms us all. So, which one is your favorite?

          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

          We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

          On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

          Advertising

          Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

          1. Smart Door Locks

          A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

          2. Smart Kitchen Tools

          Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

          3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

          If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

          4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

          These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

          5. Nest Thermostat

          This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

          7. Google Chromecast Ultra

          Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
