Disney needs to stop making kids cry

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 26, 2012, 6:09 PM

Thats a picture of me coming out of the cinema after watching Toy Story 3. And you know what? I don't want people seeing my watery face ;__;" its embarrassing. I am so sick and tired of these Disney films making me embarrassed in front of everybody! You would think alright I am gonna watch an Disney animated film, its gonna be full of kids in the cinema, its gonna be a relaxing movie, it will be filled with jokes and funny characters, its gonna be all fun and games, I am gonna come out of the cinema with a big smile on my face. THEN WHY THE F*CK DID I COME OUT OF THE CINEMA LIKE I JUST WENT TO MY DAD'S FUNERAL?! >:'U

And I swear I don't tear up in movies that try desperately to tear you up, examples being The Notebook, I hated that movie so much. There is no reason to show the couple all old and wrinkly what so ever, like many romantic film they should've just ended it when the couple was most in love, there, credits, end of movie, but no this movie likes to show when the couple are both old and about to die. The only reason I can think of is to make the audience cry, oh why not do that with every other movie? At the end of Spiderman you see an 80 years old Peter Parker crying over the dying Mary Jane in her death bed, lets add that part in. Titanic I didn't cry either, sure I was sad when Jack has to die but it wasn't like a crying moment or anything. But then you have Disney films like Lion King and Up and Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Meet the Robinsons and Wall-E...... They all made me cry like a baby. I came out of the cinema with snot dripping down my nose, tears spilling onto the carpet floor, scrunched up tissues in both hands.

See its ok if Disney wants to bring a few emotional moments into the film.. but seriously don't make it so good. I don't want people to start calling me Cry-Spirit (Thank you), or I know! How about a little warning! Like what they do with contains sexual references and low level violence that kinda thing, on the classification they should have in tiny warning saying 'May contain tear jerker moments' or something right? Or 'You may need a box of tissue'.... no that won't work, it may attract creepy men. But yeah definitely some warning is needed here, because most of the time you can't bloody tell, they disguise it so much! OK I have not seen Wreck-it-Ralph yet (Thanks to Australian cinemas showing it in December for God knows why) but I heard that movie will make you cry, well it will make ME cry for sure, but come on! Its a movie about a videogame character with a lot of other videogame characters cameo... I am afraid to watch that movie now, I might have to cover my eyes in those moments, like I am watching a horror film.

Another alternative is have a director's cut version which edits out all the sad soppy bits. Leave all the jokes and actions in there but get rid of the parts that messes with your feels, if it causes trouble with the flow of the plot then maybe just blur out all the unnecessary bits like Mufasa's death or when Andy played with Woody one last time, blur that shit out. Oh and also beep out all the emotional dialogues. Ry-Spirit cares. :D

I actually wasn't that bothered by Mufasa's death in Lion King. But the incinerator scene in Toy Story 3 made me loose confidence in Disney. And the stories of unplugged games in Wreck It Walph made me nervous to watch Big Hero 6.

Meeh. Disney is boring anyway. Don't usually cry in movies unless my FAVOURITE CHARACTER DIES WHICH THEY ALWAYS DO D: I've only really cried in the last episode of Doctor Who and Layton 3... and Pokemon xD :shrug:
nightcrawlerash13 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
Don't worry I bawled at the end of Toy Story 3 also XD And you know another movie I bawled at the end of ? Edward Scissorhands ( even though it's not a Disney movie) And I also cry whenever I finish Video Games. Do you do that?
Ry-Spirit Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
mm some video games i do cry, not much. not as much as movies. I cried at end of Layton 3. And.. i cant think of another one
nightcrawlerash13 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012

No. We need more tear-jerkers. >D

Y'know, I think those moments are what make movies such as these memorable. That's why we all remember the Lion King so fiercly, because Mufasa died and Simba couldn't understand what was going on.

To tell you the truth, I'm a souless bastard who didn't cry at any of those moments, however, I still remember those movies (or at least those parts) because of how charged with emotion they were.

I understand you don't like to get out of the movies and have to hide your face because you cried so much, but would those movies really be so good if they didn't have those parts in them?

Disney's actually been doing horribly in the story department, Toy Story was written by the folks at Pixar, What disney really needs to do is get all those crappy teenage sitcoms of disney channel and put some decent cartoons on like back in the early 90s.
MrCoolDD Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Exactly, man. There's only a few good cartoons on Disney these days...
SonicWolvelina99 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll actually like the movie more if they add emotional moments in their films. But yeah, like you said, too many will probably kill the film.
RicochetOrange Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
None of them made me cry.

I is emotionless manly man.

Pixar just has a way of making you care about their characters. They just have a talent for that.
thejenty Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I know the feeling. I ruined my face ;_; in Wreck-it-Ralph. I kept thinking... why did I wear mascara to this movie. I should have known better. >.>
haihailittlebunny Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
It is a given that Pixar (Disney too, but manly Pixar) needs to tone down the angst level.

I mean, remember the first ten minutes of Up? Where they ripped your heart out and steped on it? Of course you do, how could you not?

Now think about that being the entire film. The first draft of that movie consisted in Carl wanting to make the house fly so he could find Ellie in heaven. They ditched it because they thought it might have been "too depressing".

Children need to cry more and stop being a bunch of assholes.

I'm sorry, what were we talking about?

I love you.

I cry over children's shows too.

I actually like movies that make me want to cry since it's not something I experience often. I'm still waiting for one that actually makes me do it,though. xD

Toy Story 3 made me cry a bunch too... =w=

I cried twice when I went to go see wreck-it-ralph but its just so good and wow all the details and everything, it's my new favourite movie
narutokunobessed Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student General Artist
up, toy story, meet the robisons, are all pixar films, but they again they are under disney, so doesn't make a difference.

For lion king, its about s "leaving childhood and facing up to the realities of the world". So, why you would see sad things, and stuff.

Toy story, its kids loving their toys and then they have to grow up sometime.

And this thing
Retro-D64 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
its what they do lol its what makes them unique
mmishee Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I dont cry that much from movies, the first one that reduced me to a blubbering mess was actually Wall-E. Though no matter how many times I watch the Lion King these days, that bloody scene always gets to me D:
I got to see Wreck it Ralph when I was in the USA a few weeks ago, I think I can guess which scene they're talking about, and I guess it's sad but it didnt make ME cry or anything.
Adventure Time has been doing it to me a lot lately though D: That fucking show. Kids show my ass, shits traumatic.

But I personally love when a show/movie can make me cry, cause it means it must have been really good to be able to do that to me, makes me appreciate it more.

Maybe you should bring some sunglasses and pretend your blind when you walk out of the cinema :B
Purpleground02 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I totally agree with you. :D They should not make something that isn't so emotional.. for once. Almost all the movies, it has the scene where someone "almost/really/wanna" die. Which when it happens it makes me say "Oh great here we go again". They should just skip this part for once.

I've seen wreck-it-ralph, it was good really. But for what-so-ever happens, I say, being a gamer it's still really shoudn't be missed.
Little-MissMidnight Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well i guess if we get emotional over a movie it makes it more special. I sweat the ending of TS3 made me cry so bad. I wanted to the last to leave to make sure nobody saw me cry on a kids film.

But that is why i like Disney, as much happiness it brings i also love the sad parts. you can really learn a lot from their movies. :)

Disney movies make me cry too. I was prolly the only 21 y/o in the theatre ;ast year when Lion King 3D was out, and the moment Mufasa died, I just lost it. Game over. I cry every time he dies. I have cried at least once for all of the pokemon movies, minus the more recent ones I haven't seen. But Disney? They take the cake, they make me cry almost every movie, and some movies I cry EVERY DAMN TIME! D: :iconcryforeverplz:
RyuuKiba Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Movies are about emotions and reactions no matter the media or target audience. A movie that makes me cry is usually immediately added to my favorites, it did it's job right: make me feel something (not counting when bad movies make me feel like I want to slap the filmmakers)
So thus I just LOVE Disney movies, the emotional punch is what I hope to get and whenever I don't, my opinion on the fil suffers.
TanTanTanuki Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Student General Artist
I find that by disney adding serious elements of death, sad scenes, etc. I actually enjoy the movie more, in the sense that i find it more moving. Up for example, it starts so sad, but it's heartwarming and lifting to see Carl open up and move on- the most important stage of mourning- but doing so in a way that shows he obviously still cares for and loves Ellie, but is no longer miserable about her death. It's deep enough to move and trigger an emotional response from older audiences, but entertain the younger ones with cute scenes, funny lines, etc. The lion king has a similar feel- and Toy Story 3 as well- they are enjoyable, yet teach important lessons by using emotional plot points. Most of these lessons(in the case of character deaths) being that you need to move on, accept your responsibilities, live life as you did before. i find the better disney movies (or any movie or tv show, or book) are the ones that tell emotional stories, often involving the emotional trauma of one of the characters.

And anyway, crying shouldn't be frowned upon- i hate when it is! it's a sign of your humanity, not weakness. it's normal to cry, human to cry, not pathetic, "wussy" or stupid.

You just have to spin it a little.

I didn't cry like a baby, I shed a few many tears upon laying my eyes on this fine piece of art. :iconmanlytearsplz:

after watching toy story 3, i asked my five year old brother how he liked it and he started crying and asked me why people get old and die ._.
Ry-Spirit Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
your 5 year old brother is pretty smart. I think when I was 5 I wouldnt have gotten the deep message behind it, and probably just enjoyed the movie for its actions and slapstick humour. classic baby Ry
PokeboyD Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
classic baby Cry-spirit

explaining that to him wasn't exactly the funnest big brother duty though. i think i would've preferred leaving him blissfully ignorant
KorukiKonaru Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
...My emotions are so tightly repressed that it's hard for me to actually cry in movies or even video games. Instead I just feel very very bad.
Somehow this reminds me of yesterday. I had my best friend over and she randomly decided to rewatch The Hunchback of Notre Dame and she was positively sobbing at the end of it.
Ry-Spirit Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
i dont rmember that one, is it sad?
KorukiKonaru Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
Slightly. She was sobbing that the ending was happy, though.
mariheal Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yes, so friggin embarassing to watch those Disney films in a cinema.... My inner self tells me not to cry but man, this is a very difficult task to achieve! And I usually didnt cry when I was a kid o.0
Furrama Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012   Digital Artist
Ah, see the reason you're crying, given your examples, is that you are mourning The Death of Innocence. It's that one underlying thing in all of those movies that will reach in and rip your heart out if you're still rather nostalgic about childhood.

Wreck-it-Ralph probably won't make you cry. You might have a sad moment, but it's not really tear worthy. If it wasn't for Shut Up and Drive being wedged in where it didn't belong it would be one of the best movies I've seen in a while.
DragoonVulpi Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
What? Wreck-It Ralph never made me cry. Well maybe tears of joy, but not sadness! I was so filled with the awesome feeling of seeing video game characters in that movie and the humor of seeing old references, that it convinced me that was the best movie ever.

There's only one scene I can think of where you'd cry.... or five now that I think about it if you get attached.
prince-buggy Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I feel exactly the same way, Disney movies just need to stop making me cry! >:"U I'm scared for Wreck-It-Ralph as well, just so scared of how they are going to make me cry this time. Also, it's never like sweet sobs, IT'S LIKE MASSIVE GROSS SOBS AND SNOT AND- yeah I think you get the idea.
