List of the most tragic and saddest deaths in kids movies. These traumatizing movie deaths made a whole generation of children sob and spend their adulthoods trying to sort through their feelings.The fact that these movies were aimed at children or teens did not spare the lives of these poor characters: Mufasa, Artax, Littlefoot's Mother, R.I.P.

As a kid, you rarely saw it coming. Even watching some of these movies as adults can still cause grown men to cry. They truly are some of the top tearjerker movies. Who could ever forget poor Simba's face when he realized that Mufasa died? Or the sad scene in My Girl when a young Anna Chlumsky (Vada) cried over the coffin of her best friend, Thomas? The characters on this list can bring you back to these sad scenes in kid's movies.

There are many sad Disney movies, both cartoon and live action. The saddest scenes in children's movies were either caused by the death of characters that you, as the audience, had grown to love (like Dumbledore) or that other people in the movie loved. For example, the death of Ellie Fredricksen in Up is one of the saddest movie deaths--not necessarily because people cared about Ellie (she was only briefly in the beginning of the movie) but because people could see how much Carl loved her.

The deaths of these characters made for sad family films that were loved by kids and adults alike.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Dinosaur Movies Ever]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-dinosaur-movies/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of the best dinosaur movies going all the way back to the dawn of cinema. We think we've included all of the best ones, but if you believe we missed one, please feel free to add it to the list yourself.

Dinosaurs have been a favorite among movie goers for almost a century. This list includes all types of dinosaur films including silent movies, dinosaur movies for kids, live action, animation, new, and old. Dinosaurs are a subject-matter loved by all age groups, which makes them ideal for film making. (After all – every person, young and old, has their favorite dinosaur.) Be it a comedy, a drama, a sci-fi, or a horror film, dinos can be found everywhere.

 Perhaps one of the most famous and popular dinosaur movies of all time is Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. Originally released in 1993, this science-fiction, action-adventure movie was based on the Michael Crichton book of the same name (Crichton also co-wrote the film's screenplay with David Koepp). In 2013, Jurassic Park 3D was released in theaters, to celebrate the movie's 20th anniversary.

 Several films (including the aforementioned Jurassic Park) with dinosaur themes are among the best movies of all time, and certainly among the most rewatchable.The great dinosaur films on this list are beloved by so many movie fans of all ages. From The Land Before Time (no doubt a children's favorite) to Land of the Lost and the animated classic Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, this list includes the best dino films in the history of cinema.

<![CDATA[The Best Film Noir Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-film-noir-movies/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of the best film noir movies. While not every film noir is on this list, the best film noir titles are here. If you believe we missed one of the film noir classics, though, feel free to add it to the list of the best film noir titles yourself. Film Noir began in the 1940's and continued into the 1950's. Today we have neo-noir.

What are the best film noir movies? Borrowing high contrast cinematography from Germany, film noir based its storytelling on characters who were ultimately doomed. Film noir filmmakers were also masters of skirting the Hays Code (censorship in the name of decency) through the use of implication, subtext, and suggestive dialogue in their film noir classics. Today, Film Noir is easily one of the most resilient genres to survive the Hays Code, with films that still stand up to today's modern films.

<![CDATA[The Best Actors in Film History]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-actors
The best actors ever are ranked here in this list of the best actors in film history. These are the greatest actors ever to appear on the silver screen - male only (to vote on both genders, check out this list of the greatest film actors and actresses). These gentlemen were part of some of the greatest movies of all time (or were perhaps the reason they were the best movies ever), with countless Academy Awards between them.

What are the qualities of the best actors of all time? Is it the raw emotion they show, the parts they choose, their acting methods, or simply their effortless charm and charisma? There's no denying some of these amazing actors belong on the list of the hottest male celebrities, but behind the 1000 watt smiles lies the talent that defines generations of actors.

Who is the best actor of all time? Is it a classic actor like Marlon Brando, a comedic genius like Charlie Chaplin, a double-threat like Clint Eastwood, or a method actor like Daniel Day Lewis? There are so many choices for the greatest movie actor ever that you may have a hard time choosing just one (although you can vote for as many of the actors on this list of the greatest actors ever as you'd like). If your favorite leading man isn't on the list, make sure to add him so others can vote for him to receive the title of best actor in film history.

<![CDATA[The Creepiest Kids in Horror Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-creepiest-kids-in-horror-movies/ron-mexico
The creepiest kids in horror movies are those scary little brats that despite being young, scare the living crap out of adults. These scary kids from horror movies are both the reasons we watch some of the best horror movies of all time and why after we watch these movies we sleep with the lights on. Don't be deterred by their size, these kids are freakishly terrifying.

When you think about the creepiest kids in horror films, a few favorites instantly come to mind. Damien Thorn, the four-year-old Son of Satan from "The Omen," the scalpal-weilding Gage Creed from "Pet Sematary" and Samara Morgan, the seemingly nice girl who just happens to crawl out of your television into your room on "The Ring," all fit that bill but there are so many more where that came from.

Sometimes, these creepy horror movie kids are not scary enough alone and they have to come in pairs or other multiples. The Grady Twins from "The Shining," Cory and Carrie Dollanganger from "Flowers in the Attic" and the Midwich Cuckoos, complete with their terrifying red eyes, from "Village of the Damned" take scary horror movie child characters to another level.

Even some real-life kids, along with their horrifyingly true stories, have made their way into horror movies, as if fiction was not scary enough. Kevin Katchadourian from "We Need to Talk About Kevin" and even Regan MacNeil from "The Exorcist" were true stories that inspired horror movies reminding us that it's not just the creepy kids in these horror movies that we should worry about, creepy kids are in real life too, just waiting for the time to strike. Sweet dreams, horror fans.

What is the best Pixar movie? How many movies has Pixar made? You should be able to answer these questions after perusing the list of Pixar films ranked best to still ok, but not the best.

<![CDATA[The Most Badass Big Screen Action Heroes]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-most-badass-big-screen-action-heroes
There are certain things that make the best movie heroes completely badass - that swagger, that style and most of all, the ability to deliver in a pinch. A sense of humor is a nice touch, as are wardrobe sensibilities ( it takes serious panache to look good in a sweaty, blood & grease stained tank top )... but really, if your hero can beat the odds and save the day when under the gun, all while still retaining a clear enough head to have a snappy bon mot for the occasion ... that's what counts. This is a list of the best, most ass-kicking movie heroes ever created. Vote for your favorites, add any you see missing, and if you really want to impact the ranks, add your own list!


Ellen Ripley

Han Solo

Indiana Jones

Jason Bourne

John McClane

Snake Plissken

Harry Callahan

<![CDATA[Live Action Films with the Best CGI Effects]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/live-action-films-with-the-best-cgi-effects/randolph
Live action films with the best CGI effects include some of the most popular movies of all-time. Think Jurassic Park, the Transformers series, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. These movies all combine fantastic live action with eye-poppingly great CGI effects, creating memorable characters, and amazingly detailed scenes to keep you on the edge of your seat. This list includes some of the most notable live action movies with the best CGI effects. Don't agree? Vote a movie down. And, if you have a favorite live action movie that you think uses outstanding CGI effects, by all means, add it to the list.

Some of the best live action films with manage to be compelling and real without overdoing things. In some of the greatest films that combine live action and CGI, the scenes using computer generated images are so subtle, you can't even tell. A really well done CGI/live-action movie combines incredible technical wizardry and realistic-looking details to enhance a movie, not overpower it. Michael Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and David Fincher's Fight Club are great examples of this. Sometimes, less really is more when it comes to CGI.

What films do you think combined live action with the best CGI effects? Time to vote!

Be sure to also take a look at The Best Action Movies On Amazon Prime, The Best Action Movies On Netflix Instant, and The Best Action Movies of All Time.
