It's not just you. Any American man who doesn't cry at that scene has something wrong with his soul.

The Beginning of Up. It started out all happy and then quickly became heartbreaking. Later on when the main guy (I forget his name) read his wife's letter.

Toy Story 3 had a few moments that got to me also. Pixar, why must you make people cry about cartoon characters?

THIS. And, it isn't just Pixar either...Disney Fox & the Hound. Tears.

But, the worst has to be Boy & the Striped Pajamas. I have never balled so hard at a movie. I can't watch it again. I literally have to leave the room.

Up had me in tears. I sat there thinking about my husband and our lives together, picturing us as old folks.

Life is Beautiful had me too.

Casablanca, of course.

Shadowlands, when C.S. Lewis's wife, Joy Gresham dies. I cried like a baby at that one.

Most recently, Steel Magnolias, but for more personal reasons having lost someone close to me to diabetes.

E.T - When he goes home (As a kid it was my favourite movie, I would watch it over and over again, each time running into my mum's sweing room howling "E.T's gone home." - now I'm terrified of him, I have an overactive imagination and If I even see a picture of the little critter I imagine him in my house following me around. Crazy I know lol).
Disney films. - Fox and the Hound.
- Beauty and The Beast
- The Lion King.
- Bambi

My Sister's Keeper. - I first watched it 8 weeks after my son was diagnosed with a brain tumor - Forgetting what it was about - Really stupid thing to do. I howled like a baby.
Now that my son is in remission, it's my 'when I need a cry' movie.
I've lived the Oncology mum thing, I know what it's like to look at your child not knowing if they're going to live or die.
The hospital parts of the movie is crap - I see right through it, but it never fails to pull the heart strings - I think it's just what it stands for.

This one.


Shinji: I wanna stay with you, Asuka... and I want to help you. But, I don't know what to do.
Asuka: Then don't do anything. Don't come near me. All you ever do is hurt me.
Shinji: Asuka, help me! Please! Asuka, you're the only person that can help me!
Asuka: Liar.
Shinji: Asuka . . .
Asuka: Anyone will do. You don't care who it is! You're afraid of Misato, and the First Child... you're afraid of your mother and father, too! So now you come running to me . . .
Shinji: No, I need you to help me . . .
Asuka: — because that's the easiest way to keep from getting hurt! You never even loved yourself! You're all you have and you never even learned to like yourself!
[pushes Shinji down]
Asuka: How pathetic.
Shinji: [getting back up] Help me. Somebody... please, help me. Help me. Help me... somebody... please help me. Somebody, HELP ME! Don't leave me alone! Don't abandon me! PLEASE DON'T KILL ME!
Asuka: No.

I don't cry. Ever. Seriously, something must be wrong with me. But this here, the first third of UP, had my significant other bawling. I walked into the bedroom to find him on the bed red-eyed, wet-faced, and sniffling.

My son cried for the first time (in terms of movie watching cry) when he saw the kids in Narnia saying goodbye to *SPOILER* Reepicheep (the giant mouse - I think that's his name? I'm probably wrong).

The end of Field of Dreams, where Kevin Costner asks his dad to play catch. Gets me every time. Guess I'm not as tough as I look...It choked me up a little, I admit, but I was distracted. I was on a date (a first date, btw) and he was bawling so hard I thought I'd have to carry him out of the theatre.

The two that did get me however--the first that spring to mind anyway:

The end of Longtime Companion (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100049/)--it's a total cheat and incredibly cheap, but if you'd been a gay man in the 80s, well, I dare you not to react...

The end of Resurrection (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081414/), where <SPOILER>after all the shit that came down on her, she healed the little kid with cancer. </spoiler> Damn!

The Beginning of Up. It started out all happy and then quickly became heartbreaking.


Yep. I nearly threw something at the screen when she miscarried and we're given to believe she can never have kids.

For me, it's the point near the end of It's a Wonderful Life, when George Bailey runs back to the bridge begging Clarence to let him live again. The minute the snow starts falling, I'm blubbering like a baby. This continues to the end, when Harry Bailey says, "A toast to my big brother George--the richest man in town." At which point I'm curled up in a fetal position on the couch, sobbing my eyes out.

I like this movie, but I haven't watched it in over a decade. Mr. Lily and kiddo put it on the week before Christmas, and I had to leave the room.

The point in that scene that always gets me a little choked up is when Ernie reads the telegram from Sam Wainwright. Hey, I'm tearing up now just thinking about it.

'Always': any scene where Richard Dreyfus' ghost is in the scene with Holly Hunter... I didn't think I'd make it to the car when I left the theater, and when I did make it to the car, I bawled all the way home.

'Green Mile': when they know John Coffee is innocent, but he wants to be executed anyway

'Armageddon' - aw, man... when Bruce says goodbye

'Serenity' - Wash! Dammit!

Any movie with an animal that dies... to this day, I won't watch 'Marley & Me'. Never saw it. Won't ever see it.

Yeah.

There are a million more... I'm an easy touch. :)

I'm a sap, I cry at just about everything. Even if I'm not supposed to ;) .

But every time I tune in to FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL - if it's playing on TV or something - and if I happen upon John Hannah's eulogy/poem, I burst into tears immediately. There's just something about the way he delivers that poem, and the words in the poem itself. . . oh man, I don't have to have seen any other part of the film, don't have to see it in context, and I'm gone.

Also, when I was kid, I always wept at the end of THE KING AND I.


ETA: Just read someone mentioned the beginning of UP, omg, that one too! And I'll add the beginning of the new STAR TREK movie - don't know how they did it, but they made me care about Kirk's dad in just ten minutes. Well, it helps that he's played by Chris Hemsworth I suppose . ..

Gah--I forgot about Mr. Holland's Opus. Possibly because I'm not a Dreyfus fan, nor am I a fan of push-yer-button movies. But Mr. Lily put it on one day. When they reached the end and the students played for him the symphony he'd been writing for years...

Gah.

OH GOOD. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who choked up a bit at the beginning of the new Star Trek movie. :D

Granted, I'm a bit of a trekkie, but I thought it was really well done.

Other than that -- the very end of The Color Purple, Shindler's List, and Dancer in the Dark.

Ah, I'd forgotten about that part in Serenity for a while. Must have blocked it out or something. One of my friends brought it up years later and I punched him in the shoulder.

Same with animal deaths. I don't cry, but if it happens onscreen, I turn off the movie and watch something else (who cares what happens at the end of that movie) or if someone else is watching it with me and won't let me do that, I get up and start vacuuming, doing the dishes, or cooking something. Just to spite the movie...

Like that one movie with vampires and Will Smith.

Yes! Me too.

Also...Armageddon at the very end when Bruce Willis goes up to get himself killed.

Million Dollar Baby - from the time she has the accident through to the very end.

Titanic. Yes. Whatever. :tongue When Jack dies.

Tangled when you think the hero's dead...and then again when he's not and everyone's happy.

Letters for Juliet...though I can't remember when.

Steel Magnolias - when Julia Roberts is dying

Beaches - when Bette Midler's dying

Okay...I'm a sap. There are more, I'm sure.

Oh, that reminds me of one I apparently blocked out: Turner and Hooch.

I was 10 and a terminal tomboy, and when Hooch died I hid in my BF's bathroom for at least 15 minutes so they wouldn't know I was crying. :rolleyes:

Some good choices here. I'll agree with Field of Dreams and It's a Wonderful Life, which is strange because I've seen it so many times. Titanic didn't even make me sad, but that's just me. Steel Magnolias, the first time, when Sally Field has the breakdown after the funeral. Thankfully, Weezer threw in a comedic line to break it up. Million Dollar Baby wasn't so much sad as it was depressing. It was a great movie, though.

I'll add the movie, Ray, because it had several sad parts. The one that had me visible shaken was when he fell (after he was blind) on the floor and he was screaming, "Momma, momma!" and she was right there but wouldn't answer - to get him to learn how to take care of himself. BRUTAL.

And finally I'll add The Road. The significance with this is that I read the book while my wife was pregnent with our third child. The lengths the father went to protect his son (which we were having) and to get him to survive were overwhelming. The movie wasn't as good as the book, but I still knew it was coming and that last scene was more than I could handle. For the record I cried when I read the book too.

Even though I've become more of a cynic with age, I find myself getting more emotional when it comes to parent-child relationships, probably due to being in the middle with young children and aging parents.

Same here. I thought it was a horrible movie. That movie was HORRENDOUS. It was filled with weak, lazy stereotypes. You have, Eastwood as the old, Craggy Boxing Manager, Morgan Freeman playing the stereotypical Magical Negro he's played a dozen times, Swank in the the stereotypical Spunky Tomboy role (basically reprising her role in the Next Karate Kid) and that's just the lead. The cast is rounded out by the Sweet Innocent Retard that gets beat up by Asshole Bully who is Put In His Place by Magical Negro, the cartoonish White Trash Trailer Park Family, and referees straight out of the WWF.

To top it all off, the Craggy, Crotchety Boxing Manager assists in the suicide of a mute, paraplegic. Which is insanely unnecessary, since Spunky, Tomboy Fighter has the right to refuse treatment, telling the doctors to turn off her ventilator. But that just wouldn't be manipulative enough.

What a dreadful shitty movie.

I don't cry in real life. But movies let us experience emotions vicariously.

Sadness and horrible things don't make me cry; only moments of transcendence and epiphany. Like at the end of The Miracle Worker, when young Helen Keller, locked in a dark, silent world since infancy, somehow makes the mental leap into language.


Toy Story 3 had a few moments that got to me also. Pixar, why must you make people cry about cartoon characters?They had the perfect ending. The small band of toys is on a trash conveyer belt, heading into the incinerator. Their kid/god has abandoned them; they're at the end. They link hands and face the red glow with dignity.

Glad I'm not alone, because I am in my house when my family watches it. I was also in a stage version of this and I teared up every night. I was Mrs. Martini. It's been four years since I've done the play, and I still keep in contact with most of the cast; that's really nice.

Up--beginning and end.

Toy Story 3--I was leaving for college when this came out. I saw it twice; once with friends--one was a big football player who cried--and then my family went and saw it and my parents cried.

The Polar Express--I can't even read the book without crying, and the wonderful music added to the film just makes it worse. The end always gets me about how the bell still rings for him.

Beauty and the Beast--when he lets her go because he loves her so much. Gets me everytime.

Steel Magnolias--when Shelby dies and the famous funeral scene

I also sobbed in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part II. The whole Snape and Lily thing and when Harry was talking to his parents really got me.

The Young Victoria--at the end when Albert gets shot and she's lying over him.

I als tear up when Beth dies in Little Women.

I know, I'm a whimp.

There are a lot of deaths/tender moments in Disney films. I remember watching Princess and the Frog in theaters and when Ray died the little girl next to me burst into tears. :( I feel like someone died, almost dies, or has at least one dead parent in at least every Disney film.

I was just thinking of putting that one up there.

So I'll do this one.

"Heaven, I'm in Heaven." and "That's as good a word as any. He infected us both, didn't he, Mr. Jingles? With life. I'm a hundred and eight years old, Elaine. I was forty-four the year that John Coffey walked the Green Mile. You mustn't blame John. He couldn't help what happened to him... he was just a force of nature. Oh I've lived to see some amazing things Elly. Another century come to past, but I've... I've had to see my friends and loved ones die off through the years... Hal and Melinda... Brutus Howell... my wife... my boy. And you Elaine... you'll die too, and my curse is knowing that I'll be there to see it. It's my attonement you see; it's my punishment, for letting John Coffey ride the lightning; for killing a miracle of God. You'll be gone like all the others. I'll have to stay. Oh, I'll die eventually, that I'm sure. I have no illusions of immortality, but I will wished for death... long before death finds me. In truth, I wish for it already."

Yeah, I have some memory of crying at that.

The movies I cry the most at when watching might be The Fountain and What Dreams May Come. I use to rewatch them now and then. If choosing a scene is required, maybe when they are in the dilapidated house in What Dreams May Come. Also I start crying just at the thought of the ending scene of Christmas Oratorio.

The worst one was the anime series Clannad, where I cried literally all the time through the second half of the second season. Also a lot during the final episodes of Noir.

It's kind of up for interpratations (sorry if I misspelled back) but she is referring to the old lady in modern times. That is Rose telling the story. At the end of the movie, when she goes to sleep, she dreams of kissing Jack. I personally think she died, but I have heard some people say she was just dreaming. I think that's what French Maiden meant.

@ FredXGeorge--why the Little Mermaid? It's been too long since I've seen that.

As for television, the last 3 episodes of Babylon 5 made me cry. The finale made me weep like a wee lil' baby.

I didnt think Rose died. - She's the one telling the story.
Forgive me if i'm wrong.

I took the ending as her dying--meeting up with Jack on the stairs w/all the other folks who died. But, maybe she was just dreaming. She said she met him in her dreams every night. So, who knows. =) I cried at that part too.

Remember when Jack was telling her all that she was going to do..."ride horseback like a man...", "have kids", "travel the world" and then......"die peacefully in her sleep as an old woman". Well I took her sleeping that night, as the camera roamed over all her "adventures", all that Jack said she would do...as her living her life and passing on. Meeting Jack at the stairs was her "crossing over" so to speak...if that makes sense. That's how I took Titanic.,

Also Out of Africa made me sob like a fool in the theater when she says goodbye to her manservant and is leaving Africa. I cried during the rest of the movie too......

The end of 'Romeo and Juliet'.
The end of 'The Incredible Journey'.
The end of 'Titanic' where she finds herself back with Jack and the others who died.

The final episode of 'Babylon 5' - the sense of separation and loss struck a chord in my life back then. Even now I can't watch it without feeling that tight fist of anguish in my chest.

The Fighting Sullivans----1944

My mom had me watch this when I was young as she said it was based on a real life story. I cried and cried. Through the years when it has been replayed it has the same reaction on me.

Saving Pt. Ryan was also a take off from that, but for me did not have the impact that the Fighting Sullivans had on me. I remember holding my breathe wondering who died. Such an impact.

Okay it's a chick flick but I always cry when I watch PS I Love You.

The Fall when the stunt man is making the story he's telling the little girl end really sadly and she's begging him to stop.

Ugh, the scene in Alpha Dog when they kill the kid. I was so upset.

I can't remember which one it was but the Star Trek movie when I think Spock died. I lost it.

Flowers for Algernon!

I forgot about this one - I watched in my year 11 English and it had half the class howling like babies.

Also Dumbo - where his mum sings him the lullaby.
Even now if i even hear the song I pour my heart out - It's my when i feel i need to cry song.


Yeah, I think our high school freshmen class watched it. We read it, and that alone saddened me.


But.....

I was never one to cry from movies, or be moved emotionally, but that's changed in recent years for some reason.

Predictable, I know but the scene in Titanic where Rose is holding onto to Jack's hand and the rescue boats return for last minute survivors. "Jack, Jack. I won't let go, Jack." She almost gives up, but blows that whistle for Jack's promise. Eventually she lets go, letting him fall to a watery grave.


For a high school class, I checked out Anne Frank: The Whole Story from the library. The scene where they're being transported via train and shoved into the holocaust camps really had me bawling like a baby. I'm tearing up just writing this. In the scene there was a little girl, maybe 4 or 5 years old, separated from her family and innocently smiling as she was rushed along in the crowd. Had no idea where she was going.

I cry in everything. Even happy moments. Especially happy moments.

But one (sad) one that's sprung to mind is Gorillas in the Mist. The part where she breaks down and starts sobbing about how they took his hands.
And when they take the baby gorilla away from her.
And pretty much the whole thing really.

Oh and the end of Once Were Warriors had me sobbing for hours when I first saw it.

I get teary in quite a few films, but there's a couple of notable ones.

I remember watching Cold Mountain with my university house mates a few years ago - the ending hit me so bad I had to leave the room because no-one else could hear the film over my blubbing. I've still only seen that film once, keep meaning to get the DVD just to see the parts I missed while I was locked in the bathroom!

The other film that always gets me is Gladiator. I've seen it so many times that I know it almost word for word, and I always cry at the ending. I think a huge part of that is the music; I have the soundtrack and that also makes me cry when certain tracks play.

I have Up on my shelf at the moment but I've been too chicken to watch it because I know I'll cry - I'm saving it for when I'm all alone. :D

A SUMMER STORY always makes me cry so bad. It's an old 80s film that my granddad acted in (he played the farmer) and the scene at the end, where the old man sees his son, but knows he can never tell him who he is - that was so sad. It's got pretty good actors in, like Sophie Ward, Imogen Stubbs, but it sort of slipped under the radar. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096189/

I also always cry at Titanic, when Rose throws the necklace in the sea - that's even worse to me than when Jack dies, I don't know why.

I LOVED A Summer Story (was convinced I was the only person who had seen it!) and I bawled like a baby. Here he was thinking she had just gone ahead and married Joe, when the truth was that...

Titanic of course. Cuz I'm a big ole wimp. And Old Yeller. And the final scene in "If These Walls Could Talk" with Cher. I was hysterical the first time I saw it. My husband almost thought he was going to have to call the hospital, I was that upset.

This one is a little odd: The penultimate scene in A League of Their Own, when Geena Davis gives up her career (in essence) to her younger sister, and goes home with her husband.

My oldest offspring was about 3 months old when I saw that movie, and I was feeling fat, ugly, and exhausted. All that scene said to me was: My life is over. I'm trapped with my kids and husband and I'll never do anything meaningful again.

Baby blues--gotta love 'em. :rolleyes: Mr. Lily to this day does not understand why that scene makes me blubber, still. Because once I got past the baby blues a little bit later, I was like, "Okay, here I am, here's the kid, let's make my new life into what I want to do." :e2shrug:

I don't cry at films all that often (I've got a heart of stone) but these are the few moments I remember crying at:

The Green Mile, when John Coffey begs them not to put the bag over his head because he's afraid of the dark. That whole sequence, actually, every single time I watch it, makes me bawl like a baby.

"Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?"


The opening scene from Up

La Vita E Bella, especially the ending.

The Grave Of The Fireflies. The whole film is just so desperately sad.

Hotel Rwanda and Waltz With Bashir although that was more horror and despair than true sadness.

Only two movies have made me cry and they were both silly movies I was "roped" into watching. The first time was the end of The Mummy Returns where Evie saves Rick from falling into the underworld and Anck-su-namun abandons Imhotep to his doom after all the villainy he performed out of love for her. The other was a sappy Hallmark movie The Lost Valentine starring Betty White.

People have now been warned that if it's not a Bruce Willis "yippy-ki-yay", a Jason Bourne-type movie, or such-like , I ain't interested.

Scenes that show basic human decency, as long as they stay away from the cheese, kill me.

The soldiers stopping their firefight in Children Of Men. And Michael Caine's last scene in the same film.

Butch and Sundance. You know which scene.

Two or three scenes and lines in LOTR. Liv Tyler facing off against the Ring Wraiths in the first one ("If you want him, come and claim him"), Sam's lines about dark stories near the end of part two, and a couple in the third: "Courage, Merry. Courage for our friends". And Merry and Pippin legging it into battle at the Gates of Mordor.

"Sloth love Chunk."

Yeah. The Goonies. Want a fight about it?

The scene in Titanic where the ship is sinking and they show the lower deck with the peasant mom reading to her children. I'm tearing up just thinking about that. I cried WAY more during that scene than when Jack died.

So, who knows. =) I cried at that part too.I thought it was obvious she died and met the others who had died on the Titanic, too. Remember Jack told her she would die an "old lady, warm in your bed". She threw the Heart of the Ocean back, a foreshadow of her end, I think.

Adam's Sandler's "Click". When he goes back to the last time he saw his father and when he dies in the rain. I was at the movies when I saw it and it was so embarrassing, I was crying so hard. Still gets me every time I watch it.

Also, Will Smith's "Seven pounds", I don't remember exactly which scenes made me sad but when the credits were rolling I couldn't stop crying for like an hour.

"The Lovely Bones", when her parents are looking for her. Heartbreaking.

I remember being completely shell shocked for that bit...but there's a part later on when the mother is confronting Jake and she mentions that Grace was only 13.
I was only 14 or 15 myself when I saw it the first time, but I'd assumed Grace was my age or older. For some reason hearing that she was even younger than me really opened the flood gates.
If I watched it now I'd probably be teary eyed from the start of the film.

There was a brief passage in one of the books I particularly liked. Might have been after Del's execution when Percy insults his body and Brutal says something along the lines of: "He's paid what he owed. He's square with the house again."

But there is one film that made me bawl like I just lost my best friend. It was the final scene of an old flick, from the 70s I think, called "The Champ" with Ricky Schroeder. He couldn't have been more than 10 years old and when he cried at the end of the film when the Champ died all my friends, including the guys, where reaching for tissues. What a performance. Just thinking about it puts a lump in my throat.

There's just something about the way he delivers that poem, and the words in the poem itself. . . oh man, I don't have to have seen any other part of the film, don't have to see it in context, and I'm gone.

This times a thousand. Even thinking about it makes my eyes smart.

The soldiers stopping their firefight in Children Of Men.

An absolutely brilliant moment of cinema, although it gives me goosebumps instead of moving me to tears.

I chills at certain scenes as opposed to crying. Benjamin Button did this to me multiple times. The sequence when his daughter reads the letter he father left for her, and the inevitability of the Benjamin's fate as time catches up to him, and the final "some people" montage work me over every time.

Many years ago I stumbled over Lady Jane Grey with Helena Bonham Carter late one on tv. That final scene at her execution when she's been holding herself together but finally loses it on the scaffold when she can't find where to put her head with her eyes covered? I blubbered like a baby.

Well...okay...I'm willing to admit to three times in movie (this isn't book history that's a whole other post :D) history that I genuinely cried and one time when I was very nearly crying but held it back. The first, so I have just moved 2,200 something miles away from home (going to college) a few days ago and I finally watched Toy Story 3 before I moved and I was pretty much a sobbing mess that entire movie, which is rare because I'm honestly not a crier in movies, misty eyed? Hell yes, I got misty eyed in the "soldiers stop fighting to see the baby" scene in Children of Men and later, Clive Owen's characters fate (HE'S FINE. NO. REALLY, HE'S FINE, HE JUST PASSED OUT FROM LOSS OF BLOOD).

I'm also one of those people who worries more about the animals sometimes then they do the people in movies, gimme a dog dying and I'm near tears. Probably because I've lost a lot of dogs (all but one from old age) and it brings back memories.

Second, the entirety of the movie "The Grave of the Fireflies", one of the most beautiful and tragic movies ever, my god, I was a mess watching that.

The one time in which I was nearly crying? The opening of UP; with Carl and his wife Ellie, holy freaking crap that movie. I've lived with my Grandmother for most of my life taking care of her so like animals I have a...thing with the Elderly I guess you can call it? I have a hard time watching the elderly suffer like that in anyway, it just gets to me man.


Third, whoever mentioned the movie The Fall, the last 10/20 minutes of that movie, when Lee Pace's character Roy (one of my favorite actors ever, he's so damn good, I get caught up and forget who he is every time I watch something with him in it-- AND I'VE SAT THROUGH SOME CRAP FOR YOU LEE) is telling the little girl the end of the story he's been narrating throughout the entire thing and it's all ending tragically and he's crying and she's crying and I'm crying and...:cry:

Finally, the last few episodes (and last episode especially) of the anime Shoujo Kakumei Utena, it was all surreal (but unified in plot!) story and the ending was a great climax and the scene with Utena reaching down to Anthy, in her coffin-and she's crying and begging her to take her hand, I was like...oh wow I'm getting teary eyed now. Damn you all this post...

The scene in a little princess when her father gets his memory back and shouts her name and she runs out of the arms of the cops and over to him.

And recently the rape scene in the US girl with the dragon tattoo.

TITANIC:

- Opening title (I think that this is mainly due to the effective music).
- Rose looks up at Jack as the lifeboat is lowering and Jack looks down at her with the emergency flare going off behind him.
- Jack runs after Rose after Rose leaps off of the lifeboat and back onto Titanic.
- Jack and Rose in the ocean--Jack saying to Rose that she must do him "this honour".
- The very end when we see Rose in her bed. The camera pans over all of her accomplishments, then over to her, and then we see the Titanic wreckage, which morphs into the ship as she was in 1912, and Rose meets Jack again (and for argument's sake: I think Rose died at the end of the film).

Actually, most of Titanic had me in tears lol. It's my second-favourite film of all time and it still gets me.

FORREST GUMP:

- Forrest talks to Mama before she dies, followed by Forrest's voice over: "You died on a Tuesday..."
- Forrest Gump realizes he's a father.
- Jenny asks Forrest to marry her.
- Forrest cries at Jenny's grave.

THE LOVELY BONES:

- Suzie Salmon screams as she realizes she was murdered by Mr. Harvey.
- Jack and Abigail cry in bed when they find out that Suzie has been murdered.
- Jack realizes Mr. Harvey is the murderer.
- Suzie arrives at her Heaven and "Song To The Siren" begins playing.
- Suzie kisses Ray.

STAND BY ME:

- Chris Chambers cries over the milk money
- Gordie LeChance cries because of Denny
-The boys walk away from each other when they return back to town and Chris disappears once it is mentioned that he's been murdered.

CHASING AMY:

- Holden tells Alyssa that he loves her.

THE GREEN MILE:

- Hal tells Paul that Melinda is sick.
- Hal tells Paul that Melinda has a tumor and that she will die.
- John Coffey heals Melinda.
- John Coffey is executed.
- Percy steps on Mr. Jingles and Delecois screams.

BOOGIE NIGHTS:

- Eddie/ Dirk tells Jack that he's sorry.

ROCKY:

- The end of the Rocky/Apollo fight and Rocky screams for Adrian

ROCKY II:

- Rocky: "There's just one thing I gotta say: ...YO, ADRIAN, I DID IT!!!"

ROCKY BALBOA:

- Rocky tells Paulie about the "stuff in the basement".

TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY

- The Terminator and John Connor or talking while the Terminator is repairing the car and they see the two kids fighting with guns and John says, 'We're not gonna make it, are we? People, I mean."
- The Terminator is lowered into the steel and raises his thumb to John. John cries on Sarah's shoulder.

So, I guess what I'm saying is: I'm a big softie lol.

Toy Story 3, where they're just about to fall into the pit and while I knew they'd be rescued, the expressions on their faces made me think they were real. That's what great voice acting and music combined together will do.

Brian's Song, where James Caan in lying in bed and in the next scene, Billy Dee Williams hears his best friend has passed away.

Bang the Drum Slowly, where Robert DeNiro plays a slightly dim-witted catcher. Great acting.

Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka). Gets me every time.

Shane, final scene. "Shane, come back!" Old fashioned, yes, but very effective.

UP, first ten minutes.

Godzilla's meltdown in Godzilla vs, Destroyer. Very melancholy music.

Lots of others but those are the standouts.

I cry at movies a lot. I'm very sentimental. The emotional climax of Field of Dreams still gets me every time I watch it.

The most visceral reaction I ever had in a film was Saving Private Ryan. I was weeping at the end, and was so emotionally shellshocked that I broke down and started weeping again in the bathroom afterward. That's the only time I can remember having an emotional aftershock to a film.

I loved The Fall. Tarsem Singh is an incredible visual director, even though most of his stuff is lacking in other areas.

And Lee Pace has the greatest eyebrows in the world.

The last scene that really made me cry was in Melancholia, when Kirsten Dunst is eating the meatloaf and breaks down because it tastes like ashes. Her performance is such a brutally vivid portrayal of depression and it really got under my skin.

Toy Story 3 had a few moments that got to me also. Pixar, why must you make people cry about cartoon characters?

I am so glad I'm not the only one who cried during that movie!
Also, the new Muppets movie. I grew up watching the Muppets, and I started bawling when Kermit started singing Rainbow Connection.

Wow. I'm a pansy, aren't I?

I don't much cry over any movie, and although I can't bring one to mind, I guess there have been a few scenes- here and there- that made my throat tighten. People just don't move me.
But let a herd of horses gallop across the screen and I can't see the last one for the tears flowing. A single shot of a single horse will layer the goose bumps across my skin and darn near dehydrate me. I have to have a fist full of tissues to watch the Kentucky Derby.

I'm not super emotional about movies/TV. Usually, I attribute that to one, being a writer and knowing it's all not real, and two, growing up with a too-bad-so-sad kind of mentality.

In reality, I'm only sensitive to things that are close to me.

But even insensitive me teared up a little at the beginning of Up. Usually, Mufasa's death gets me, too.

The one that really hurts my heart every time, though, is a documentary about gymnastics when they talk about Elena Mukhina, who was paralyzed from the chest down right before the 1980 Olympics. It's an exceptionally tragic story.

.... I'm just going to get it out there.
Marley & Me.

Red Tails, though I didn't cry at this one; when the Italian woman was told at the end that her husband was not coming home, kinda ruined my day.

Top Gun; Where Goose gets killed. Got misty-eyed on that one.

Letters from Iwo Jima, When the Protaganist was fighting off the American soldiers at the end with a shovel, and then he got captured(?) A sort of surprise moment for me is when the two soldiers executed the Japanese prisoners.

Ip Man, when Man was shot at the end.

And tons of other movies that have made me bawl my eyes out and lose my masculinity, one horrid death at a time.

Oh wait, I cried so hard when Rue died in the Hunger Games movie, not because the movie was good, because they So did not do Rue justice, at all in that movie!

06-12-2012, 12:52 PM
LOL, this! Exactly!

Well...okay...I'm willing to admit to three times in movie (this isn't book history that's a whole other post :D) history that I genuinely cried and one time when I was very nearly crying but held it back. The first, so I have just moved 2,200 something miles away from home (going to college) a few days ago and I finally watched Toy Story 3 before I moved and I was pretty much a sobbing mess that entire movie, which is rare because I'm honestly not a crier in movies, misty eyed? Hell yes, I got misty eyed in the "soldiers stop fighting to see the baby" scene in Children of Men and later, Clive Owen's characters fate (HE'S FINE. NO. REALLY, HE'S FINE, HE JUST PASSED OUT FROM LOSS OF BLOOD).

I'm also one of those people who worries more about the animals sometimes then they do the people in movies, gimme a dog dying and I'm near tears. Probably because I've lost a lot of dogs (all but one from old age) and it brings back memories.

I've lived with my Grandmother for most of my life taking care of her so like animals I have a...thing with the Elderly I guess you can call it?

Lots of movies made me cry and I have no shame to admit it.

When I was six (I believe) and watching the Lion King, I cried when Mufasa died. According to my mother, I must have seen the movie around seven times in the cinema and I cried every time it happened. Those were my first tears over a movie. Afterwards...

The Notebook (I hate Nicholas Sparks' books, but they make terrific sappy movies). Tangled (my boyfriend mocked me for days). Bambi. Toy Story 3. Wall-E. Grave of the Fireflies. Atonement.

Oddly enough, it's mostly children's movies that make me turn the waterworks on. Nothing tugs at your heartstrings quite like children's movies.

The movie My Girl - the scene at the boy's funeral. It's an open casket, and he's not wearing his glasses. And Vita comes running up to his casket, crying and sobbing and saying that he needs his glasses! He can't see without his glasses!

OMG, I'm getting teary just thinking about it.

These lines from the film Glory:

Well that might not be living, but it sure as hell ain't dying. And dying's been what these white boys have been doing for going on three years now! Dying by the thousands! Dying for you, fool! I know, 'cause I dug the graves. And all this time I keep askin' myself, when, O Lord, when it's gonna be our time? Gonna come a time when we all gonna hafta ante up. Ante up and kick in like men. LIKE MEN!"

Trip (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000243/): "I ain't much about no prayin', now. I ain't never had no family, and... killed off my mama. Well, I just... Y'all's the onliest family I got. I love the 54th. Ain't even much a matter what happens tomorrow, 'cause we men, ain't we?"

Colonel Robert G. Shaw (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000111/): [points at the flag-bearer] If this man should fall, who will lift the flag and carry on?
[Thomas steps forward]
Cpl. Thomas Searles (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0105672/): I will.
Colonel Robert G. Shaw (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000111/): I'll see you in the fort, Thomas.

Ray - where Ray's little brother drowns in the bucket. When I saw that I bawled, screamed at the television, and cursed the producers and God and everyone. (The little boy was same age and looked a lot like my son at the time. Also I think I might have been off my medication. :D)

Ray again, when Ray is going blind, and trips and falls, and his mother doesn't help him even though she is right there, because he's got to learn to be self-sufficient -- and then a good cry when he hears and catches the cricket.

Secretariat when Big Red is winning the Kentucky Derby (the part in slow motion, when Diane Lane does that killer quote that starts out: He laughs at fear....).

Titantic when the mother in second class tucks her child into bed while the ship is going down. Another wanted-to-slit-my-wrists moment.

Titantic again, when Rose blows the whistle. Good cry.

Titantic AGAIN, every time a Celine song starts. :D

Chrissy, you would have to mention Titanic! (Cue vomit noises here:D). Sorry, every time I hear the ending song it makes me want to carve my eyes with a rusty spoon.

The Iron Giant where the robot goes up to head off the missile. Music just gets me every time. That scene, along with the end when you see the bodyparts reassembling themselves. Good music will make a so-so movie better, and great music will make a solid flick even more entertaining. This movie did it right.

I cry at the drop of a hat, but the ending of Regeneration made me bawl when I first saw it. It would probably still make me bawl today if I watched it right now.

The ending of trilogy it's adapted from (well, the movie's really the first book with the ending of the third gracefully meshed into the end) is kind of designed not to make you cry, even though it's common knowledge that two characters you very likely love by this time don't make it. But the movie was like, "F*** YOUR TEAR DUCTS, I DRAIN THEM DRY!" three times over, and only one is those deaths. The other two, from the first book... Dang.

The first theater film I remember ever tearing up in was Edward Scissorhands (the ending.)

The first one I remember ever crying over was a movie I saw on VHS as a kid: Silver Bell, an animated story of a young ewe whose mother is killed by a wolf. He leaves the flock to avenge her, the wolf takes him on as his apprentice, until the day comes when they make a raid on the sheep... Man, talk about a downer of an ending! (TBH, to this day I don't remember if that was the for-real ending or that was the we-just-can't-take-this-thing-anymore ending...)

Been a few others, but those two are the ones that stand out.

(Oh, yeah - and if anyone saw The Neverending Story and DIDN'T cry over Artax... and the last monologue of the Rock Biter as he waited for the Nothing... you ain't human!)

The Patriot- the scene when the little girl who refused to talk to her dad, starts crying and begging her dad not to go and promises to say anything he wants as long as he doesn't leave again. GETS. ME. EVERY. TIME.

LOTR: omg. TOO MANY SCENES TO COUNT. Srsly, I never cried as much as I did in The Return of the King (even worse in the extended version). Cannot get through that movie without shedding tears (and I've seen the movie like 30 times!)

Pay it Forward

The Lion King-When Simba dies.

The Little Mermaid-When Ariel says goodbye to her father (King Triton).

Poltergeist-when the old lady is telling the mother what to expect and when she finally hears her daughter's voice through the t.v. (I'm weird)

Armageddon-when Harry tricks A.J. and decides to be the one to detonate the bomb and A.J. is crying and begging Harry not to go and screaming that it's his job to do it and Harry says his job now is to take of his little girl. OMG EFFING TEAR JERKER.

I think that was about the only time i really cried over a movie.

A few that came dangerously close.

Up when the old lady dies.

Jesse's song in Toy Story 2

When Nemo's mom dies in Finding Nemo.

Ariel singing about her mother in The Little Mermaid 3. If you haven't seen it yet check it out, just once. It's sad that Disney stopped making video sequals just as they seemed to figure out how to make them work.

1. The Lord of the Rings (I was a lot younger)

2. Malcolm in the Middle (That was my wanna be childhood, and it all ended right before my eyes!)

I want to put Seven Pounds on this list first because I watched it just under a week ago for the first time and can safely say I'll not be watching it ever again.

A vast majority of animated movies always have me crying. To name a few; The Lion King, Lady & The Tramp, The Fox & The Hound, Bambi, The Land Before Time, Dumbo, Oliver & Company and Watership Down.

American History X is another that tears me apart at the very end.

Others:

The Brave
A Walk To Remember
Pay It Forward
Dead Poets Society
What Dreams May Come
Meet Joe Black
Fluke :cry: :cry: :cry:
I Am Sam
Anna & The King
The Neverending Story
Wuthering Heights
Order Of The Phoenix
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

I can't imagine not being an emotional wreck at the end of that movie. Only saw it once because it hit me so hard.

I'm going to be predictable and say the beginning of Up.



Boys Don't Cry killed me.

There's a bunch of movies I can't watch now because I get teary eyed.

I'm worse with TV shows, though. Buffy and BSG being the worst of them.

Ugh, The Body. :(

I've cried at lots of scenes in Doctor Who. ("Everybody lives!" from "The Doctor Dances" is an example.)

The ending to The Color Purple (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRSla1RaEiM&feature=related). When the two sisters see each other after so long. I cry every time.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape. When Depp hugged DiCaprio after hitting him, it really touched me. That movie was amazing.

Since someone above mentioned Malcolm in the Middle,

I cried in the last episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-air when Will danced to Tom Jones with Carlton.

Hell, fresh prince of bel-air has made me cry a LOT.

Ordinary People

When Timothy Hutton is talking to his therapist about his suicide attempt and how selfish he was and how his mother had so much blood she had to clean up and he realizes then that it's his mother who was the bad one.

I was sobbing.

My own older brother had died the year before so maybe that fed into it.

And like someone just said the ending of Color Purple when she's screaming across the field "Nellie!!!!" oh boy oh boy.

And Brokeback Mountain during the "I wish I could quit you" scene. As a gay man watching the movie, that scene destroyed me wow.

Wow, so many movies, so many tears. I cry at the drop of a hat in movies so it's probably better to ask me which sad movies I don't cry at.

However, a few of my favorites that I do always cry at:

The Matrix Revisited - when Trinity dies
Hachi: A Dog's Tale - yeah I cry at animal movies...
I Am Legend - when his dog dies (of course!)
The Road - just because
The Green Mile - I have only watched that movie once, and I own it. I just can't watch it again.

There are lots more, but those are the ones that stand out.

I'm not the type to cry in movies, but there are two that get me every time: The Shawshank Redemption and Toy Story 3. Just thinking about those scenes is getting me a little misty...

When I was eight my Dad told me to watch Old Yeller. Let's just say that I was not too happy with him after the ending.

When I was much older? Forrest Gump, definitely, when he's talking to Jenny's grave.

The first film I cried at was Old Yeller. I must have been about 6. Now I'm 61, and I still remember it!

Others that made me cry:

Dead Poets Society
Children of a Lesser God
For Whom the Bell Tolls
The Notebook
Gandhi
Hotel Ruanda
Shawshank Redemption

and lots of others. I cry very easily!

Exactly this. I think Old Yeller wins the prize. It was the very first movie I thought of.

The very last scene in Schindler's List - the one where the stones are being piled up. Massive, shaking sobs. I had to sit in the cinema for ten minutes to pull myself together.

Also My Girl. Pretty embarassed about that one.

I'm glad I see a lot of Toy Story and Up! scenes in here. For me it would be when Sully has to take Boo back home and destroy the closet door in Monster's Inc but that, along with Kelly's Heroes, is my favorite movie.

Yeah, I can't even think about it without tearing up, but I was a wreck when I saw it. Anyone who wasn't needs a soul transplant.

The funeral scene in "Steel Magnolias" when M'lynn is ranting about strength...

My husband and I both sobbed like babies.

Too many to mention! Pretty much any Disney movie, almost all of them have at least one heartstring-tugging moment.

The Notebook pretty much left me in little soggy bits the first time I watched it. I still cry at it now, but that first time...no one warned me that it was a tearjerker film so I was totally unprepared for the sadness that was the ending.

My Neighbor Totoro also makes me cry and I don't even know why. I mean, they're animated characters, but their fear and distress when their mother can't come home from hospital and they start fearing the worst feels to real to me that I break down every time I watch it.

The scene where Annie tells Alvy she doesn't want to be with him anymore in Annie Hall. It doesn't make me cry but it makes me very sad.

Something in Moulin Rouge, I can't remember what it was, because I was too busy wallowing and wailing to heavens while trying hard not to choke on my tears...

I will NEVER touch that wonderful movie again. NEVER.
