Movies That Make You Cry

105 posts in this topic

sooo I was randomly crying (I can't imagine how I'll be on hrt!) and it made me think of this question. What movies make you cry?

For me the biggest two were

Up

Metropolis (old silent movie)

but I do some other times too (It will feel more natural after transition)

I also had the habit of crying for the bad guys in kids movies when I was younger.

AAAAnyway what movies make you cry?

Hah! I cry over episodes of the Simpsons sometimes. One that really gets me sobbing is Seven Pounds.

Any movie with a lot of emotion will get me going though.

I have little kids so this can happen a few times a week or even day :)

Yes...the first few minutes of Up. OMG! Every time. Im glad I haven't seen it since I had my meds upped.

And I tear up when Nemo's mommy dies trying to protect her eggs even though you don't see it.

At the end of "Saving Private Ryan," the scene at the gravesite had me crying like a baby.

Same thing happened during the final episode of "Lord of the Rings," when all the people at the ceremony bowed to the Hobits in tribute.

I'm tearing up just thinking about that scene. Geez! ;)

I don't really cry at films really. They have to be REALLY sad and either be a true story that is sad or have something to do with suicide.

One film that got my heart a little, I didn't cry, but almost welled up was Blood diamond when a character dies.

Another film that got my heart much more intensely than Blood Diamond was Constant gardener. It's an amazing movie but I found it to be very sad. :( Again it made me well up, but possibly more so than blood diamond did.

Another film that got me was a film called Boy A. It's about a boy who in his youth befriended another boy who was being abused by his brother. This boy reacted to that by becoming somewhat 'evil' as in killing animals, finding pleasure in others pain. It took a turn and he killed a girl, Boy A was there (he calls himself Jack in the movie) and I think somewhat joined in, possibly out of fear from his friend. Who really knows. He had a tough childhood too, his mother dying from cancer and a father that didn't seem to really care about him. He'd go home beaten up and his father wouldn't even notice the black eyes. Nor his mother who was lying in bed, but then she was dying so maybe that excuses her a little. He is released from prison and changes his name to Jack his original name is Eric. Jack gets exposed when after an act of heroism. I won't give away the ending in case anyone choose to watch it, but needless to say the ending is sad. It's a gritty film, nothing very glamorous about the film. Which helps it portray a realism about it, which is what I liked about it as well as the story it self.

One movies I saw that always makes me cry alot is a holiday movie called, The Christmas Shoes.

It is based on the song by the group Newsong.

The name of the song is the same as the movie and it makes me cry to when I hear it.

I am a complete sap when it comes to movies. Here's my list...

Pan's Labyrinth

Marley & Me

Toy Story 2

Prayers For Bobby

Those are just a few of the recent ones. There's so many, I can't remember them all, but I am known to cry at Pixar films and Disney cartoons.

Omg, I CAN'T watch that movie. Cannot. It reminds me too much of when my dog died last year, and it's like...physically painful for me to even think about it.

Will Smith's a fantastic actor.

My list, short as it is. For the record, I hate this near-vendetta for crying so I try to avoid sad stuff and stick to horror flicks/comedy.

-What Dreams May Come. Every. Time. It's an incredible movie. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely give it a shot, it's...it's just beautiful.

-SLC Punk. Best crying scene I've ever seen in a movie.

-Too Won Foo. It's silly because it IS a comedy movie, but at the end, I always tear up.

-Dead Poet's Society.

-RENT

-Boondock Saints, the first time I saw it.

That's all I can think of.

I love all the Pixar movies and Sarah reminded me of TS3. OMG. That ending was just evil emotionally. But other than the shut down I don't remember anything but mostly hope and joy during Wall-E. Now in a few years when my kids are older and I think back to my youngests first Halloween and my oldest dressed as Wall-E...ah crap...ok. Yeah...he's gonna make me cry now too but for different reasons.

Schindler's List. Nothing bothered me untill the ending wth the guilt Oscar had comparing his property to being able to save more lives.

I rember crying from The Fox and Hound as a kid, but after that there's not very many movies that get me choked up.
