I cried when I heard they're doing a Warcraft movie.* Does that count?

*This is actually a big lie, though I did l o l a little.

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.

It is funny you should mention crying during the simpsons because I have done that as well. To come up with a specific example I would have to mention the episode in which bart purchases a new dog with a credit card and gives his old dog to the repo men. My brother saw me crying and I was a bit embarrassed even though I was not ashamed of crying because I knew he was going to tease me. I also cried during seven pounds and I cried during I am Legend. I would have to add gattaca to the list. It was such an emotional movie and I cried for scenes that weren't sad but evoked a variety other emotions that made me cry. There is also a funny instance in which I cried during a comedy. LOL. The film was "Fun with penis and Jane". I cried because I couldn't see the things that were resorted to as hillarious because I only saw them as tragic. It is kind of funny that I thought "I can't believe it has come to this" instead of "Oh my god it is so funny what it has come to" but that is the way I saw it the first time. I also cry listening to certain songs. I cried listening to "nothing to lose", "you found me", "boulevard of broken dreams" and others that I can not recall just from the top of my head. I can be quite the cry baby even though I have absolutely no access to female hormones and I am seventeen. I wonder what I would be like on hormones. I would probably be an emotional reck but there is no way to find out but to do it (that won't be for several years when I become fully educated for my career and move out but it is interesting to think about).

Random Harvest with the stunning Greer Garson. If you can sit through this without crying, you're a stone.

No one mentioned Bridges of Madison County.

Million Dollar Baby, which brings up a point. Why are people saying Hillary Swank isn't hot? That bothers me. I think she's drop dead gorgeous.

Someone mentioned Blood Diamond. Good choice.

Penny Serenade.

In Name Only, with the most beautiful woman I've ever seen, Carole Lombard.

Pvt Ryan, also mentioned is a great one.

The Searchers

The Goodbye Girl

Waterloo Bridge

Here Comes Mister Jordan.

Shawshank Redemption.




.....just to name a few

Shoot. Old Yeller. Forgot.

Deer Hunter was mentioned. Great one.

Blackhawk Down as well.

The new version of Tess of the d'Urbervilles (Also brings out my anger at Thomas Hardy) and the newest version of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility with Hattie Morahan. Little Dorrit. Tale of Two Cities.

( I love my Jane Austen's)

More later.

Practically everything. But my biggest cry goes to Marley and Me. Oh and Charlie St. Cloud.

And Jewelry commercials... They get me EVERYTIME. The writers for those commercials should be given an award or something :P

I tend not to well up at films, though one that really got me as a kid was Pit Pony. People can get killed and I don't blink an eye but as soon as it involves animals it's a different story! :P

Let's see... There are a bunch of movies that make me cry when I watch them.

Forrest Gump

The Green Mile

The Place Promised in our Early Days

(Any movie from Studio Ghibli)

The Shawshank Redemtion

The Truman Show

Those are the ones that come to mind. I'm sure I could get a better list if I was looking at my collection while writing it.

I well up for lots of movies. Just about anything with an emotional build up. I doesn't need to be sad. Love stories. And I can watch a movie several times just for effect.

Green Mile

Steel Magnolias really touched home for me.

Um let's see. Gattaca gets me a little teary near the end. And Lost And Delirious, the ending makes me cry. And The Notebook almost made me cry the first time I saw it.

A lot of movies make me cry.

The weirdest one by far was a documentary I saw on the old Penn Station before it was torn down. There's a scene with one of the angel statues lying scuffed and broken in a New Jersey landfill that absolutely crushed me. Someone spent countless days carving a thing of beauty beyond anything I've created in my entire life and that was how later generations treated it. It's so callous that it almost seems unreal.

I'm actually tearing up again remembering this.

I cry during a lot of movies. I cried when i was watching outbreak the other day out of compashion where before i didn't value my own life a thought dropping the bonb was a good idea.

I cried during spy game when gred pitt's character had a bad date with his girl frienr because of his boss interfering.

I cried in finding nemo when ellen's character was being stung by the jelly fish.

I pretty much cry at everything now even when out and about. I wasn't having sucu a great night a couple of days ago and i happened to have my ball cap with me and spent most of the night with teary eyes hidden by the cap.

I cried way too much long before I took hormones anyway, but one that does me in is Ghost, when they finally get to kiss. Another is Schindler's List, when the survivors are honoring him at his gravesite.

There are several movies that made me cry the first time I saw them (the fact that I saw a lot of them as a kid when I was a crybaby didn't help, LOL), but these ALWAYS make me cry even rewatching them:


-Interview with the Vampire (not as much as the book)


-Blade Runner

-The Thirteenth Floor

-Requiem for a Dream

-The Butterfly Effect (at the very end)

-Leòn/The Professional

And speaking of cartoons...the end of THAT Gosh darned episode of Futurama with Fry's dog! The sad music doesn't help, LOL

Also, Ai no Kusabi and Winter Cicada are two well-made yaoi anime...but they are REALLY sad. I only saw Winter Cicada once so Idk if I'd cry again watching it, but the first time I sure did.

A lot of stuff (anime, books, tv shows, videogames, sometimes even songs) make me cry but somehow films don't often...

well, the only one I can think of is the second Pirates of the Carribien film when Jack got eaten by the Kraken.

      Just waiting for my son to vacate the bathroom so I can get ready for my yearly medical. She's a new doctor and although I saw her once in Sept this will be my first medical with her. My electrologist is tomorrow so I have a little growth of white hairs but the denuding of the chin is noticable. I figure no makeup. The other significance is it will be my second medical since starting hormones so my second exam for breast cancer signs. (I check for signs but have never formally learned) For some reason i am kind of private with surgery so I will leave the details to my discussion with her today as I have approval from my transition doctor and shpuld be on a waiting list. The weathers lousy here right now and despite Vancouver's beauty in the spring and summer, the winters are mostly wet, dark, and dirty from debris being blown away. Still it's my home and it always looks worse outside than it actually is. 2 weeks from now is my transistion doctors appointment and I hope to have a surgery date by then or given to me then. Cheers Rachel

      Thank you for sharing about the issues facing you in Bulgaria.  I fear ignorance and fear of anything different has long been a tool used by politicians and "religious" factions to unite less educated individuals.  We face that to some extent here in the USA as well.  It is especially obvious with the present administration.  Hopefully enlightenment will continue and acceptance will win out.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree with Charlize as I would like to see it as well.
    • shelly_koleva83
      https://www.coe.int/en/web/conventions/full-list/-/conventions/treaty/210 This is the document that brings chaos in Bulgaria's media and 'society'. The word 'society' is in quotes, because it reflects only a selected members and groups of privileged and oppressive people in the country, who  see themselves as the 'society'.   What in the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence also know as the Istanbul's Convention in Bulgaria, brings that wave of shock and hatred?    First it was the conception of 'gender'. In Bulgaria, for the regular people, 'gender' and 'sex' means one thing. For the scientist and intelligent people it's not one and the same. So the here is the definition that started the war between Bulgarians Christians and Nazis against the Human rights advocates and transgender and intersex people:
          So the from here, evangelistic-oriented and sponsored, pseudo-democratic organizations like 'Society and Values' started to talk about how the Convention will force the country to add 'third gender' to their Constitution, how trans women 'who are men' will compete with women and use their facilities (painfully, well known in USA and other countries, haters-strategy, yeah!) and that it will allow a 'same sex marriages' to be legalized. The doors of misery and stupidity, diverse the attention from the major goal of the Convention - to limited the violence in Bulgaria.   Bulgaria is country with a lot of psychopathic traditions related to sexism, patriarchate and chauvinism. The hate and discrimination against LGBTI+, women and emigrants, in the country are totally above 'normal'. The motives for hate are like taken from the Medieval. If we start to talk about the domestic violence, against vulnerable people and minorities, based on different categories, I must write a whole book in here.   So at this moment, at this point, the Convention can't have ratification (it's signed), because illiterates and haters are throwing their poison on the citizens, making them to believe that the Convention will force the people to have 'third gender' or even 'worst' - to accept transgender and intersex 'freaks'.    This is our reality, which is more like hell! The stupidity, hatred and complexes are spreading around dressed like 'Christian and family values'... We still can't predict the end.

      She certainly uses her assets well and i'm glad to see her given positive attention.  Hopefully the rest of us don't feel we have to live up to those standards of beauty.  I know i'm content simply being an old woman but .........a girl does dream sometimes   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Charlize
      I hope she gets the nomination at the least.  It sounds like a difficult but beautiful film.  Hopefully we will have the opportunity to see it as well.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Tali and its really nice meeting you!!!   I prefer to hang out only in the LGBT world but it's also impossible to stay there forever. I attend a transgender group meeting every week and it has really helped me to stay grounded as you pointed out that being transgender has its own set of problems.   I fairly new here and I will say the girls and guys here are very accepting and over the top helpful in every situation I have seen presented. You have found a safe place and please feel comfortable here! Welcome and hope to see you on here often!!!   Tess
