Tear Jerker / Spider-Man 3

  • The death of Harry Osborn.
    • "I should never have hurt you. Said those things." "None of that matters Peter. You're my friend....." "Best friend." *Sniff!*
  • Say what you will about 3, but the scene of Sandman getting up in the silo gets me EVERY time. If the shot of him trying to grasp his daughter's locket doesn't do it, it's the music in the scene.
    • Similarly, the scene where he simply... blows away in the wind makes for a rather sad and touching moment.
  • The flashback of Ben Parker's death. Especially when we find out that it was an Accidental Murder.
  • The scene where Peter hits Mary Jane in his symbiote induced rage and his My God, What Have I Done? reaction.
  • Peter and Harry, former friends, at each other's throats. As well as when Harry shields Peter with his body and they make up finally at Harry's death scene.
  • Aunt May consoles her nephew after his recent downward spiral due to his usage of the symbiote suit and tells Peter to forgive himself and that she believes that he will set things right again.
  • Peter losing his temper with his landlord who has asked him about his overdue rent. The landlord is clearly crushed, and slowly says that Peter's a good boy, and clearly something is wrong for him to be acting like this.
    Peter: "You'll get your rent when you fix this damn DOOR!!"
  • It's a bit depressing seeing how head over heels Ursula is for Peter, especially during his symbiote-induced craze. She's barely able to contain herself around him and is lapping up all of his attention, baking him cookies and feeding him. And Peter doesn't actually have feelings for her.
  • Not a part of the movie itself, but rather the DVD release. The commentary track ends with the cast hoping that they get to make another movie. Ouch.
    • In a storyboard, the 4th film would have Peter getting evicted from his apartment. Yes, this scene has a sad Ursula in it.
  • Four years after the film was released, Cliff Robertson died. It's sad watching his role knowing that it was his last.
    • Just a year before, Lucy Gordon, the actress who portrayed the newswoman in the climax, committed suicide. Much sadder is that this was pretty much the only film she was recognised for.
