I finally got around to watching X-Men: First Class last night, and I teared up a couple of times... most notably the gun/satellite scene. I was emotional for a good part of that movie, I think because how doomed and tragic Charles and Erik's relationship was from the start due to their polarized perspectives, and the knowledge of how it had to end hanging over the entire movie despite their accomplishments. Phenomenal acting throughout... the snark, the gestures. Everything.
But: bad = unsad, because a bad film cannot achieve the seriousness required to evoke sadness.

I was joking.
Plus, if they hardest thing you've had to watch is Butterfly Effect, that ain't exactly your mother's funeral. That's not even your goldfish's funeral.
I should have clarified, I found one specific scene of the movie to be the saddest I've ever seen, not the whole movie.
I tend not to watch drama movies, as I find most of them pretty boring....I'm like ''where's the action?'' all the time.
Perhaps the saddest movie I've ever watched, considered as a whole, was Vanilla Sky.
The only movie that has made me cry was Saving Private Ryan.
It was after I had been doing hours and days of research on the dynamics of battle; I made it through the entire movie without any emotional stirring.... but the final scene, where Ryan is kneeling over Hanks' grave... seeing the rows upon rows of soldiers who gave their life to keep tyranny off my doorstep....
