Title: movies that make you cry
Post by: Jackie Blue on 11 Sep 2008, 02:08
i'll start.

stardust.  the part where yvayne confesses to mouse-tristan in the carriage.  10/10 A+

garden state (SHUT UP OK).  pretty much the whole last 30 minutes of it are a nonstop weepfest for me.

trust.  the very last scene.  the music, the imagery, the conclusion to the events leading up to it... absolute perfection.  gold soundz.

you?

The only time I've cried during a movie was when I was a lad and I saw the Pokemon movie. Truly, it tugged at my heartstrings.

I always cry at the end of Pay It Forward. Can't help it.

There are (several) other movies that have made me cry, but that's the one I can think of now that does it every time.

I think I've said this before, but the only time I actually cried was the end of Kazaam.  I was six years old.  I'm not entirely sure I knew what was happening.  The end of A.I: Artificial Intelligence was also pretty heavy, but I didn't cry.

I thought I was the only one who got teary eyed over the Pokemon movie...

Big Fish made me cry, and Brokeback Mountain I can't watch without a box of Kleenex next to me.  I think Hotel Rwanda made me cry as well a bit.

I can't think of any others off the top of my head.  I don't watch a lot of movies to begin with, and I generally tend to avoid movies that I know will make me cry.  I mean, if I want to cry I'll just go ahead and cry.

Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List are both movies that pretty actively attempt to get the waterworks going. I saw SPR in the theater when I was a young'un and I was the only person there not crying, probably, what with the old people. I just wanted more milk duds. As I've gotten older it's gotten more effective at getting its hooks into me.

When Tom Hanks loses Wilson in Cast Away, that got to me. Man, fuck Steven Spielberg, for real.

I almost cried at the end of King of Kong. Not King Kong, mind you, though I did cry when I was a kid cuz why did the monkey have to die.

The episode where Frieza kills Krillin

Beaches. When Barbara Hershey's character dies at the endish...goddamn. First movie I ever cried during.
Mighty Joe Young. I have no explination for this... But when you think Joe has died, falling off of the ferris wheel or whatever, I just had tears running down my face.

There were a couple of others i cried during, but I don't remember what...those are the two I always remember. I am more likely to cry while reading a book.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.  Not only is the movie absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking, it's got sentimental value on top of that.  Man, the "Meet me in Montauk," scene is gorgeous.

Brokeback Mountain nearly made me cry.  The only reason it didn't is because I thought it was going to make me do it a half an hour earlier than the movie ended.  It was so slowly paced.

Can't think of any more right now, though.

It's like scraping your knees. It hurts, but it's good for you. It's just instead of your knees, it's your heart. And instead of a scrape, it's more of a gouge.

I guarantee you will not want to watch it twice, though.

Grave of the Fireflys didn't even come close to making me cry.  It's a pretty good film but something about its execution is bothersome.

Control, I don't know how I forgot that one.  Definitely.

While I have come to reconcile my prior distaste of Brokeback Mountain and the extremely questionable nature of its characters and message (for one, I think that it is entirely false, or at least ludicrously simplistic, to say that it is a film about two gay men), I can't imagine crying over it.  I do now agree that it's a good film, but I fucking hate talking about it with most people.

Since I came off medication I cry at pretty much every movie ever now. Memorable recent examples include Wall:E, The Dark Knight and the Rugrats Movie. Recent in that I saw them, I mean.

I think the first film I saw that made me really lose it was the Tom Cruise War of the Worlds... (SPOILERS??) the scene where they lose the car shocked something pretty depe down inside of me, that whole kind of "Wow people are dicks to each other" moment was something I probably connected with a little too strongly and it honestly broke me apart.

I can't watch Baz Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet without spending most of the second act in tears, either. Movies totally emasculate me.

Sorry maybe i missed something - but how is scraping your knees good for you?  All i know is it is very very Hurty.

and too add my newbish two cents that no one really wants to hear but it had to happen sometime so it might as well be now...

Titanic. Scene with the old couple dying together. In my defense I was much younger then. But I haven't watched it since.

The Devil and Daniel Johnston, not while I was watching it, but later when I was thinking about it and listening to his music. I haven't watched that movie since either, and I own it.

Not a movie, but the end of Six Feet Under made me cry for almost an hour. Along with several other scenes (you know which ones they are SFU fans).

Also of all things an episode of Monk made me cry recently. Talk about embarrassing.

RENT, without fail (I know it's practically blasphemy to watch the movie rather than the stage show, etc, etc, I still watch it)
The Pianist
The las two episodes of Cowboy Bebop, which I haven't actually watched in about a year because they are just too painful for me (I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to that series)
Any movie in which a pet or animal dies.  I really can't handle that.

The Bridge to Terabithia almost made me cry last year

I was watching that on Encore the other day, and it entirely caught me off guard and i was crying into my afternoon breakfast cereal before I even knew what was going on. Its those father son moments that really get me, makes me want to hunt down and hug my dad wherever he is. Also, I mean, all of it together the second half of it just came out of left field for me.

Other than that I don't really cry at movies.

I guarantee you will not want to watch it twice, though.

I've seen it four times....willingly.  It's a great movie, sure the animation is dated...but who really cares about that when the movie itself is incredible.  What's great though, is lending it out to other people and their reaction when they give it back to you. 

Schindler's List

American History X doesn't quite make me cry...but damn if it doesn't get pretty damn close.

There aren't any movies that have made me cry that I can think of, however off the top of my head I can think of at least 3 TV shows that have done it to me.
Scrubs has broken me twice. First, season 3 my screw up. second, season 5 my lunch.
The Second last episode of Ashes to Ashes when Sharron was stabbed
And recently an episode of Boston Legal got to me, when Shirley had her father euthanised

Okay, I went through a long list of movies I've seen to remember if I had an emotional reaction to them or not on the sobby wishy washy level. Not much until I remembered the Last Unicorn, which overall is a very cheesy animated film overall, but there's a couple parts of it that make me moist around the eyeballs. Oh, and if we're going by TV shows the episode with Fry's dog. That episode's ending makes me want to kill myself.

Futurama is more emotional than just about any other show/movie I can think of. Jurassic Bark, Luck of the Fryrish, and The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings all had me on tearing up. I was disappointed that the first movie altered the Seymour continuity because it saps all the poignancy from Jurassic Bark.

Man, I'm constantly nearly crying at films but rarely actually do. That said, Pan's Labyrinth had me weeping like a child the first time I saw it, and the second time I went with a group of friends and all six of us were tearing up by the end.

Dancer in the Dark fucked me up so hard, though. I just felt dead inside, I couldn't even cry. Man, that film.

A.I no one i know , knows of the movie but i was a really young age when i saw it and i started to cry at the part when they leave him, and if you know the movie thats like 20 minutes in or so , and its almost a three hour movie or so i think it seemed like it anyways. Well any i was crying through the rest of the movie, and it was only about 20 minutes to the end where i realized i couldn't take it anymore, and shut it off. My family was worried i was dehydrated, it was so bad. And if anyone has seen the end please tell me does he find his mom with the aliens, does he become real.

I've seen it all the way through.  I'm a bit hesitant to tell you what happens at the end, because it'd be a disservice to the movie.  There's also just plain old wikipedia, if you're really that curious.

That movie, which I saw a few weeks ago, was probably one of the more emotional movies I've seen.  I still haven't cried over anything since Kazaam.

I, rather embarrassingly, cried during Armageddon. But then I cry at adverts. British tv shows a lot of adverts for cancer care charities, and one of them is all these people going 'I shouldn't be here' and then, at the end, a pretty blonde girl in her wedding dress sobbing 'my mum should be here.' Bastards.

I have a theory that anyone who didn't cry when Bambi's mother died should be tested for Sociopathic tendencies.

I cry at Edward Scissorhands, every time.

I cried so much when I first saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls.  It was like watching a best friend being beaten and violated in front of me, and I could do nothing but watch terror and cry.

Truthfully, I get sort of choked up at the end of To Kill A Mockingbird.  Particularly the scenes in which Scout identifies Boo Radley, walks him home, and stands alone on the porch.  The aren't particularly sad scenes, but the ending has always affected me in someway.  Reading that part in the book was even harder then watching it.

Here is a clip:

Movies don't usually make me cry at all, and if they do, it's just a slight watering of the eyeballs. However, "Into the Wild" and "Awakenings" made me cry a LOT.

Even though it's lame and a science moron like me knows it's bullshit, "Deep Impact" made me tear up for a second. Because the idea of having to wait for a deadly comet is SEVERELY disturbing, and that's why the movie is effective, even in its bad science cheese. It's about the horrible wait, not the actual event.

Anyway, Elijah Wood and Leelee whatsherface are about to flee the comet just in time, and Leelee's parents had her their baby and put her on the motorcycle and the acting is actually good enough, and dammit it's actually sad. I feel so full of shame, but it's the truth.

the ending of Gladiator made me cry a little, as did The Orphanage. It was such a bittersweet ending, and the acting was phenomenal.

I tear up easily, but only a few movies have actually made me cry. The Green Mile the first time I saw it. Lion King made me cry every time when I was a kid. Schindler's List gets me almost every time. So does Forest Gump. The movies that truly made me bluber though was Stop-Loss. For reasons that are ovbious (to me) I bawled like a newborn and will never watch it again.

Forgive me, but I cried to the Final Fantasy movie when I was little.

When I look back on it I wonder what I was thinking. Maybe it was the end song. The end song was good.

I totally agree with Cast Away when the dude loses Wilson. MAN THAT WAS OMG CRY.

Wall-E was more of a feelgood cry ending, but I didn't cry to that. Others definitely did though.

Requiem For A Dream

oh and one episode of Without A Trace called Wannabe was really sad.

Browsing this thread, several movie names were mentioned, that I've either A) heard were indeed tearjerkers, according to various friends of mine, or B) seen a bit of.

- American History X
- Grave of the Fireflies
- Bridge to Terabithia
- The Notebook

I watched most of AH X with my cousin, I saw a little bit of the Notebook (more specifically the last 30 minutes). I didn't cry but I was like "aww, goddam..."

In my pre-teen years, movies that just did it for me were Indian/Bollywood films. Then I got older and didn't really break down at any more emotional films.

The episode where Frieza kills Krillin
Control, and Yi-

I know that's an outdated post, but I LOL'ED.

Just as a general comment...dudes, spoilers!

As for me, my parents forbade me from watching ET for several years on account of my initial reaction. More recently, it's possible a single, manly tear may have passed my cheek near the end of Gladiator.

Oh man I forgot Nuovo Cinema Paradiso. Bloody hell, what a movie.


YEAH HI. Cinema Paradiso is the only movie which has made me tear up basically every time I've seen it. The ending sequence with all of the love scenes gets me every time.

Oh my God, "Grave of the Fireflies" is soul destroyingly sad. Naturally I watched it when I was like 12, and haven't seen it in ages. I bet it would make me cry now.

There should be another topic for straight up depressing movies, or once that made you feel ill.

Man, the first time I watched The Notebook, I couldn't understand why everyone loved it, but I rewatched it tonight after, oddly enough, having read a lot about it in various places the last week or so, and God, I'm a wreck. There have most definitely been other, sadder movies that haven't made me cry, but for some reason, I was bawling by the last part of it.. It also made me think about how I've actually (if I'm lucky, that is) lived about a quarter of my life, although I'm not quite sure why, and most of it has been extraordinarily boring.

After giving it some thought, I think I tend to cry during very, well, a lot movies. It's sort of weird that I'm such a big movie/TV crier, because apparently, I don't show a lot of emotion otherwise, which again makes it more embarrassing when I actually start crying over nothing in movies/on TV, but sometimes it's just impossible not to.

Can't remember what films I've cried on. I remember when I was little I thought the Fox and the Hound was worth crying after
I remember gettign all teary during the Seymour episode of Futurama and that other episode where he thinks his brother stole his identity. The Scrubs where Cox screws up and someone dies was sad too.
Filmwise though, I can't really think of anything

I Am Sam - I can't specify a scene because I pretty much cry through the entire movie.

The Notebook - same thing. Every time Noah's in pain, I'm in pain. Hahaha

Atonement - ouch. Such a sad movie.

Only "movie" I cry at every time is a British TV mystery  The Remorseful Day, from he Inspector Morse series. I cry every time I read the novel, too. But's that's probably not because the book or the novel are terribly sad, but because of the attachment I have to one of the characters.

Don't really blubber or anything, but occasionally get the 'about tos'. The ending to The 400 Blows and Liam Neeson's line after the lame guy gets killed in Schindler's List always get me though.

I think I've said this before, but the only time I actually cried was the end of Kazaam.  I was six years old.  I'm not entirely sure I knew what was happening.  The end of A.I: Artificial Intelligence was also pretty heavy, but I didn't cry.

I also cried at the end of Kazaam, but it was for a whole host of reasons unrelated to the actual content of the film.

I cried at the end of Forrest Gump and the middle of The Lion King.

RENT, without fail (I know it's practically blasphemy to watch the movie rather than the stage show, etc, etc, I still watch it)

I'm with you here. 

Serenity - but only after having seen all of Firefly, because it really hit me that this was the end with these beloved characters.

Also: Two Brothers (the one about the tigers - or lions - I can't remember through the tears).

And The Lion King.

I just love lions so much.  When they die, part of me dies inside.

I cried during A Very Long Engagement. There were just tears streaming down my face for most of the film. I cry at most things these days. Even the final episode of the last series of Doctor Who set me off. It's not fun. I can't even bring myself to watch Grave of the Fireflies. It's just been sat on my shelf for months.

Im actually a crier when it comes to movies and hell even some commercials but the last movie I remember bawling during was this Anime called Grave of Fireflies. Not the typical big breasted women killing demons type of Anime either. About a boy and his younger sister trying to find a new home after we firebombed Kyoto and left them orphans.

Man On Fire.

Me too! I really really wish that guy had more time. It was the not having enough time that made me cry.

There were some emotional moments though, in both versions.

Never cried at a movie, or at much lately, I must be in an emotional vacuum.
