So I've never seen Rambo before, but for the first time I watched First Blood. The original Rambo movie, because of the reputation that the other Rambo movies had I NEVER thought that the end of the first one would move me as it did. I just happened to catch it on Tv and I felt like there was a pit in my heart. This movie isn't an action movie, its a Tragedy about a man who had lost it all and given all to a country that did not care for him."Who are they to protest me huh?! who are they?! unless they've been me and been there and know what the hell they're yellin' about"
Fucked up thing is....I still see it. Ive seen a times already of soldiers I know being told "Hey shouldn't you be off somewhere killing Brown people?"by ungrateful shits. As if every soldier is just some wind up toy that gets their key turned and gets sent off to kill, like they don't have feelings, like they don't suffer.
It makes me sad thinking of how many Men and Women get disrespected and abandoned by the government and civilians they fought for.
At the same time, aside from the depressing stuff, I always go to good old Mr. Chaplin, and this scene always lifts my spirits up. I remember when I was younger I had no idea who Chaplin was, and all I saw was the toothbrush moustache and avoided the video. Then one day I clicked on it and listened, and what he said nearly had me in tears.
This rings true just as much now as it did then.So
what about you all? What scenes really touch you emotionally in any movies you've seen?
