Examples:

"Would [Steve Spielberg's] notoriously ill-received 1941 have worked as a musical? Maybe not; it might well have retained the moments where its spectacle turns lugubrious, straining and burdening the comedy that's supposed to hold it up. On the other hand, while it's uneven as a comedy, 1941 is a marvel of choreography." — Jesse Hassenger, Paste Magazine, 6 Dec. 2021

Lugubrious is the sole surviving English offspring of Latin lugēre, meaning "to mourn." Its closest kin, luctual, an adjective meaning "sad" or "sorrowful," was put to rest centuries ago.
