Voices of A Distant Star: It just made me tear up at the end.
Ben:I cried when I saw this because of the rats being killed with the flame throwers when I was kid, and the boy with the heart condition crying thinking Ben is dead. Even though Ben shows up in the boy's room, he's still in bad shape and you don't know if he gets to live or not. The Jackson Five song didn't help either.
Agreed. Ben limps into the boy's room, squealing in pain and discomfort as the song plays in the background. That was very heart-wrenching seeing it as a young boy.Seen it in the theatre, cried, and my father made fun of me on top of it. He's an idiot that's been re-married 5 times anyway, so the joke's on him, lol
The Golden Seal: This one started the water works because the boy is crying because he has no choice but to let the seal mom and her pup leave, otherwise his father and the other hunters will try to kill them for their golden fur. He had become attached to the seal after both the dog and her puppies die from an illness earlier in the film.
Yeah, that and the one Benji film where the hunter kills the mountain lion, and then Benji finds the orphaned cubs and carries them out to safety by the backs of their necks one by one.
Dumbo: The whole scene while Baby Mine was playing especially while Dumbo's mother cradles him and rocks him in her trunk.
Give the man 64 dollars. That one hit us all.
I'll add the end of Dances With Wolves
, when Wind-In-His-Hair is on top of the hill on his horse, shouting 'Dances With Wolves' over and over again in Lakota as Costner is leaving the camp. It was magnificent scenery too, on his horse holding the spear over his head as his hair was blowing in the wind. Made me truly proud to be American, and still does.Godzilla vs. Destroyer
, when Godzilla melts down at the end as they play his swan song in the background, as he lets out that one final pain-filled growl and just dissolves into radioactive glitter. It was the end of our old, original buddy
TV Shows: Leave it To Beaver
: Whenever Ward would punish Wally and Beaver, or sit them down and calmly and gently explain the facts of life as the orchestrated music played inthe background. I won't go into a long bit, but let me say abut Ward, "now there's
a father." The last TRUE American family sitcom, period.
More as I think of them.
