Tear Jerker: Treasure Planet
The scene with the song "I'm Still Here" accompanied by images of Jim's father leaving him and his mother. Especially the one where Jim runs down the stairs in the morning to find him mother crying then in desperation runs outside to where his father is taking off on a ship and he tries to get to it before it takes off but fails. The sequence was done beautifully.
Completely in agreement. Because: Hello there, long-standing issues! Back again, eh? Eyes mist up as well at James stacking plates and overhearing his mother fretting over him; the guilt and frustration with himself is obvious, and anyone who's ever seen their parent at their wits' end over you...
The part where Silver encourages Jim after the boy thinks he has royally screwed up and caused the death of one of the crewmembers.
Silver: Now you listen to me, James Hawkins... ya got the makings of greatness in ya. But ya gotta take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it, no matter the squalls! And when the time comes, ya get to really test the cut of your sails and show what you're made of... well, I hope I'm there... catching some o' the light comin' off ya that day..."
Which makes the scene in the purp barrel that much more of a Tear Jerker! The look on Jim's face when he overhears Silver denying that he cares for Jim and is only pretending to keep Jim off of the pirates' tail...
It was Jim's monologue right before Silver comforts him. Fellow teenagers, raise your hands if you've ever felt this exact feeling!
Don't you get it? I screwed up! I thought for two seconds, I thought I could do something right!
The scene where Silver leaves. The whole speech he gave about why he needs Jim to take Morph, when really he's talking about himself is emotional, then after a certain point both characters are sniffling and concealing tears right along with the audience. The part where Silver flies away to freedom and lets out the most joyful laugh ever is the final straw.
After the chewing out Jim gives Silver to the point where after Jim tells him to find the treasure without his map and Silver threatens to blast him, Doppler, Amelia, and B.E.N. to kingdom come if he doesn't get the map by tomorrow and turns to leave, he notices Morph floating beside Jim and orders him to come. When Morph does nothing, but remains beside Jim, Silver screams "NOW!" at him, only succeeding in scaring poor Morph. As Silver leaves and Jim and Morph walk back to B.E.N.'s house, Silver stops and looks back sadly.
