I know, stupid poll. But I'm just curious about your opinions. :)

By heart-wrenching, do you mean gross out or extremely saddening?

The whole movie was terribly emotional.

I can only choose one, but heres my opinion...I honestly think that the most heart-wrentching moment in the movie would have to the scene where Littlefoot believes his shadow is his mother...that's just wrong on sooo many levels, but it is understandable as to how it happened (I once walked into a glass patio door while following my shadow... :lol: man that hurt! :lol )

And the score to the moive was pretty emotional as well especially towards the end of the movie...

What a poll... there's just so many things out the original that get to you. I can't pick, and I won't pick.

well, personally, I think that it's an okay poll.  I just think that there should be more choices.  But, there's a 15 choice limit so it's a little hard to choose.

I personally found every moment mentioned to be heart wrenching except for Petire's death.  I knew that he survived.  I dunno how. :unsure:

Petrie.

Really the score is what does it.  Even through all the moments mentioned, the musical background is what conveys the mood and emotion expressed on screen.

*wipes brow*

Yes, I was thinking that there could be some healthy discussion here. Deleting it seemed a bit premature. There were a lot of sad moments here, and not the least of which could be the music score. I just can't choose.

The shadow on the wall. That blew me away when I saw it for the first time, years ago.

Well i voted for the whole movie, but other than that, i would have to say that it would be the score as well. As Petrie stated the music conveys the mood that is on-screen.  If there was the wrong choice of music or no music at all, the scene wouldn't be as "heart-wrenching".

On topic: I have always been very hesitant about superlatives and I'm afraid this is another case where I cannot name a "one and only most heart-wrenching moment". But you certainly did a good job in picking the potential scenes :)

According to one audio play of the land before time which I have Petrie managed to flap to the rocky wall and then climb up. From his looks in the movie it seems more likely that Sharptooth's bite slackened after Petrie was pulled bellow the water surface (Sharptooth probably lost conscience or simply died quickly). So Petrie could wrench free and then climb up the wall (flying was still a new experience for him and was probably difficult with soaked wings).

Or opened his mouth in surprise! :lol:

I just knew that Petrie couldn't be dead.  I guess it was because there was no logical reason to kill him.

Maybe Bluth was trying to tribute Billy Joel and "only the good die young".  :lol:

The score can really set the mood for any movie in my opinon. It can take a movie in different direction just by the pace or the instruments used. I think the score made the movie all the more sadder with the use of the...I think it was the oboe? (please feel free to correct me! :yes)
