Movies that make you cry
« on: November 25, 2014, 10:23:07 PM »
Ok tough guys and ladies... time to admit at what big softies we all are. I'm a pretty emotional guy, quick to anger, quick to smile, and quick to bawl my eyes out at a movie.


For me, a few come to mind. First, Stand by Me. This movie holds up well, especially for males, I think. It's hard to explain, and even though I had a crew of friends when I was younger my true life friends didn't show up until I hit high school.

The part that kills me in Stand by Me is when he tells what happens to Chris.

The other movie is Braveheart. Yeah I know it's a ridiculous Gibson movie, but when his friends watch him die at the end ... shit I lose it. I've never seen the redheaded dude in any movie but I'm sure him and the Irish guy are bit players in a lot of UK productions. Anyway... the emotion on their faces hits home.


I teared up in Interstellar...

I'm sure there's a whole litany of movies but I can't recall them all right now. ...

Night and Fog probably.

What movies caused you to become an emotional heap of quivering and sobbing flesh?

Grave of the Fireflies probably makes me cry the hardest. I watched this with my little sister the first time I saw it, which while probably made us both cry 10x harder, it was a great bonding experience for us both.

Dancer in the Dark.  It's just so fucking sad dude.

Fox and the Hound. When that fucking song is playing as he gets abandoned. ;-;

Harold and Maude. One of my favorite movies.

Good Morning Vietnam. When they start playing What a Wonderful World and he's saying goodbye. I'm not even kidding

The ending to Sucker Punch.

Every. Single. Time.

Oh, and Wreck-it-Raplh. If you've seen the movie, you know what scene specifically. Damn that silly movie makes my eyes water.

Meet Joe Black
When the guy at the end accepts his death with no leftover regret or desires, I shed a tear because that's so great.
I wish I could die feeling like that.

Code Geass R2
The final super epic end.
(every time too... I'm rewatching it right now and god damn)

Up's first 10 minutes or so, of course!

WALL-E's ending

The ending to How to Train your Dragon really got me.  

Pay it Forward's ending

(Eugh, sorry) The ending for The Notebook. x_X  It was just so fucking happy.

Meet Joe Black is hammy, but I think it's agreat choice nonetheless.

While I think this movie is completely overrated dross, the big sad scene of The English Patient
Code: [Select]
For the fellas who haven't sceen it:  Love interest is in a terrible plane accident and, while holding on, needs medical attention.  Main love interest guy goes off to nearby town to get help, but gets restrained and arrested for something.  Needless to say, she dies and he couldn't save his lover.

As far as manly meaty tears go, there's Kittan death scene from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

I got a little choked up at the end of the dark knight rises when Alfred breaks down about Bruce eating the big one...even if it was obvious foreshadowing, it just hit hard like goddamn that happened.

TASTY!

Rachel Getting Married made me cry... so depressing. Trying to think of others and drawing a blank, but I know there's more.

Braveheart, no doubt. When he gives that horseback speech, and of course, his death scene.

LOTR movies. Return of the King got me in a few scenes, but the one that makes me shiver and shed a tear is when they all bow to the Hobbits. Hell, I'm getting shivers right now just thinking of it.

For some reason Life as a House got me bad. Probably because I was feeling particularly shitty about my chronic illness situation.

Both How to Train Your Dragon movies got me. I love them.
spoilers for #2:
Code: [Select]
When Stoick and Valka get back together, and he sings her a sweet song.
The death of Stoick, which actually did shock me.
Why the hell was 2 so ignored by the public? I don't get it. Hopefully it does well with home sales and rentals.

Yes, the first 10 minutes of Up. Damn.
The ending of Toy Story 3.

I know there's more, but I can't think of them.

Playing: DA: Inquisition
Reading: The Backyard Parables

I've only ever cried at the end of one movie


Rudy....gets me bad, every damned time


when that little hobbit sacks the quarterback in front of his family,
and that damned song...

http://youtu.be/-09ayPX_KVs?t=1m30s

My dad fought in Vietnam,
he didn't cry at either of his parents' funerals, 
but he was a wreck by the end of this film (it helped that he was actually at the game in 1975)

I saw it in theatre's with him when I was 9
it was the first time I remember seeing him in any state even remotely close to vulnerable
I think that's why it's stuck with me

Rudy is a TERRIBLE movie

Green Mile is so notorious in my house that one Saturday morning I went downstairs bright and early, around 7 AM (as is my wont) and was flipping through the channels to see if anything good was on. Landed on Green Mile. By around 8 AM I guess I must have pretty audibly sobbed as my wife suddenly yelled down the stairs "IS EVERYTHING OKAY? ARE YOU WATCHING GREEN MILE?!?!?!"

Not gonna lie, Monsters Inc. made me shed man-tears.  So did Dead Poet's Society.
