movies that make you cry
« 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
Control, and Yi Yi get me going pretty consistently.  I think the time I watched Serenity immediately after finishing Firefly for the first time, I teared up a bit.  Also: La Regle du jeu.

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.

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.

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.
