    Watership down. God, that film REALLY upset me. It was something about the animation that made me cry so much, I always thought Richard briers had a voice that basically was designed for that kinda animation .

    I was so upset that my mum and dad ended up thinking of taking me to the doctors, as I just wouldn't snap out of it. Which is unusual for a kid, given how quickly they forget things

    Funnily enough, the bit where you see the rabbit dodging the car really got to me. It was the realism of it hopping. Bust most of all the rabbit hopping to heaven

    It was my first experience of death in that kinda way. It was heartbreaking and I was also so glad the rabbit didn't have to suffer any more. Guess it helped me comprehend both sides of death, funny that the things that affected me the most, then and now, ot the ones I consider the cruelest have nothing to do with horror

    I also remember the goodies doing a spoof of it, and I was so upset that I stopped watching it for ages, even though I really loved it.

    It still really upsets me, even now, just writing this, so I'm gonna stop
