Watership Down for me, bar none. Saw that as a kid and couldn't stop crying. Hell, I still well up now whenever I hear ''Bright Eyes''.

Those, along with When the Wind Blows and Ringing Bell (though that's a short).

Especially when it showed all those segments with the Machines experimenting with humans to find new sources of energy. So brutal.

And that last scene with the young girl playing in the "snow" and then running to her "parents", only to be revealed that she's just another human battery. I mean, damn.

Interestingly enough, the guy who directed "The Second Renaissance" is also one of the directors on the new Rebuild of Evangelion movie, Evangelion 3.0. Kind of makes me wonder what that one's like.

How has The Iron Giant not been mentioned yet?!

I thought Toy Story 3 was a little depressing too.

Toy Story 3 is about..life, and it's really a very optimistic movie. But it also deals with the bittersweetness of growing up and how we should deal with it.

"Fantastic Planet" had some sad moments, as well as the " Taarna segment " of Heavy Metal. And who can forget the death of Optimus Prime in " Transformers the Movie "

What makes the movie even more depressing is that Judith Barsi, the voice actress for Anne-Marie, was constantly abused in real life by her father, who became increasingly alcoholic due to her rising star. There were signs of abuse, but charges were dropped. And at the tender age of 10, she, along with her mother, was shot to death by her own father, who then proceeded to shoot himself and burn alive in his own house along with his family.

And this all happened a year and half before the movie was even released.

Just think about that the next time you watch this film.
