Top 10 Best Hugs (cinematic edition)

So recently I just started thinking about the really GREAT hugs that we've seen on screen. Generally, kisses are talked about more, but HUGS are severely underrated. For one thing, they apply to many relationships besides romance. And they are just the most comforting, satisfying finale.

So I shall begin with the hug I just recently witnessed while watching the FF7 remake, and from there I shall list some of my other favorites in no particular order.

Cloud and Tifa from FF7.

I was literally whispering under my breath, "YOU HAD BETTER HUG HER, OR SO HELP ME."

Zuko and Iroh from A:TLA


And because Zuko is a precious bean, he gets two hugs on this list.

Honestly, I was never sure about him and Mai, but this hug at the end won me over. Cause look how HAPPY they are.

Time for a childhood throwback. All three of these reunions have wonderful hugs, but I think we can all agree the best is Peter and Shadow. *bawls*

Homeward Bound

Frodo and Sam share many hugs, but this one.... *hand to heart*

LOTR: Return of the King

Okay, sorry, time for the tragic hug. When I watched this, I thought "Oh, how climatically beautiful" until a small child in the theater asked, "what happened?" and I promptly started bawling.

Star Wars: Rogue One

"I'm your son." That is all.

Kung Fu Panda 2


I loved seeing Natasha become OTHER than romantic interest, but actually develop into a GOOD FRIEND for Steve.

Captain America: Civil War

One of the most beautiful moments ever on screen.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

So there's my list! Any you would add? Do share! :D
