Do some movies make you cry?

Recommended Posts

gigi1969

Hello everyone. My question is "Do some movies make you cry". I was watching "Pretty Woman" the other day and I cried during the final scene when Richard Geer climbed the stairs and he and Julia Roberts embraced. Tears of joy ....it was so beautiful. Do any of you have these movie moments like I do?

Oh god yes. It happened before I started my transition. It is much, much worse now. I just go with it.

 

Movies. TV. Anime (I watch a lot of shonen). Books. I hit an intense scene and the waterworks just switch on. It's glorious.

 

Hugs!

Yes.

Although the thread title showed "do some movies make you cr..." and I assumed "cringe" because there's that too.

I've always been that way: I sob my way through tear jerker movies, cringe my way through movies that have rapes in them, etc.

I'm emotional and I just let it all hang out. Doubt that will ever change.

I've found that crying comes easier now.  It was a stronger response shortly after starting HRT but even years later i can cry when not expected.  Some films just hit me but i don't know when or where that might happen.

Yup. I'm not even on HRT. I guess the lack of need to be stoic opens the flood gates sometimes.

 

Lots of love,

I'm a poor sap who cries watching great love stories.  Even before hormones, I would sometimes tear up and have to swallow deeply at the end of select movies.  Now it's a bit more of a scene.

 

These two movies cause me waterworks EVERY time!

A Walk To Remember (2002)

Far and Away (1992)

I boohoo just about every time I’m watching a decent story on movies or tv. Like others have said I did it before and now it’s even more so.

It used to be so embarrasing in times past, but I worry less now. I am prone to bursting into tears at all manner of odd moments. When they held the olymics here in London I had almost had to avoid the TV for days as tears would just flood out when the anthem played. Films are similar. There are some I avoid watching as they affect me so much. One of the biggest traumas from my childhood was watching The Snow Queen one Christmas. It's funny how something not real has perhaps more effect than episodes which were far more dangerous from then.

OH, yeah. I cry at a lot of movies. When the sad or romantic parts come, here comes the water works.  I cannot watch a Lassie movie without balling my brain out. So I don't watch them.

It's the hormones and why my real TG handle is "Mona," it is a part of my sense of humor with regards to the effects of hormones. Prior to transition nothing made me cry, now when having a discussion about something devastating like the death of my dog with a few genetic ladies, they see my eyes tear up and I can read their thoughts ("Oh isn't that darling!") as they give me warm and appreciated hugs.

Bambi, when her mother died (I was eight)

What dreams may come as I saw it not long after my dad had died without knowing what I was going to see. 

The green mile also made me teary, but as a general rule I am so in control of my emotions usually just a watery eye is as close as I can get.

Though this year I have since added Avengers Endgame and a true story sports film I watched yesterday called "Greater" onto my list.

 

No reason other than I am just allowing myself a bit more freedom of expression recently.

I tear up regularly, pre-E, I am wondering if I’m going to start turning into a sobbing mess once I start HRT.

I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.

LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.

I always used to tear up watching emotional movies.  Now I do so even more.  The nice thing is that I no longer have to feel self-conscious about it. :)

I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.  
I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.  
😭😢😉

I cry at the ending scene in LOTR-Return of the King.  When he sees Arwin.  And it continues when he kneels before the four hobits and tells them “you kneel for no one”.  
I lost it before now I’m a wreck.  Lol

I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

HA!  I knew there was at least one LOTR geek here with me!

Love those movies.  The Hobit movie series too.

Just powered threw the extended versions two weekends ago.

 

That a rough 10 or hours for the Hobit and 14 hours for LOTR.  Straight!

Yes I like them a bit.  LOL

I cannot remember a specific movie that made me cry, but I'm pretty sure there have been a few that made me teary. The end of long-running fictions tend to bring me more easily to tears. It's always hard to say goodbye to those when they followed you for months if not years.

    • Maid In Bedlam
      openly admiting that? 🤣   You wait until you have something to fill a bra with.. Some times i wish i could take mine off but i keep looking for the velcros. I cant find it. I wish i could get the cheeky so and so who strapped these to my chest. Oh hold on a minute it was me. DOH      
    • Emily michelle
      I think the blue sweater and jeans they look really good on you. Good luck on your interview I know you will do fine.

      Presenting favorable circumstances or showing signs of a favorable outcome;       My pronouns are Legend or Awesome. But in that strange world outside the internet people just use my name. The only time anyone uses Miss or sometimes Mrs is when its official. Bah to that. We are already of the same thinking patten   See already your comments have had favorable outcome   I rest my case 😉

      Before a, As you call it validation what is your own idea of being transgender is?     This may sound like a rather starange question. But peoples throughts on what they are actually defining themselves can be very diffrent.   An example of this would be.   transsexual;     This definition I dont actually agree with in parts but for the purposes of answeing your question is sufficent.   Trangender:       Almost the same you would think at first glance. But in reality Two very diffrent conditions.   You also use the word transvestite. Which again is a very diffrent and can be classed as  outdated  in some quarters.   Which would relate to if you;       As i will reiterate. Before an answer you have to understand the question.   Just saying could i be, is just the starting point.  Logic will dictate what you could or could not be  by a process of elimination.   Dont even get me started on Gender fluid, Gender queer, Non Binary. The list goes on.       Do you have a compelling feeling you was not assigned the right gender at birth or do you just get a feeling of sexual euphoria when dress in clothes of the oposite sex? And pardon the frankness of that questiion but if your just a transvestite then that would be a good indicator or starting point..   However if ihave made you think Now have i felt theres something wrong my whole life and I feel that i have been a, (And i hate to use this term) A Woman trapped in a mans body. Then i would say there is something deeper going on.   Remember a Man doesnt become a woman. A woman just makes herself more womanly. Ie, Transsexual.

      @Alex C   Just be yourself and you’ll do just fine. I personally like the outfit on bottom but I can’t see what you’re wearing below the blue sweater but the color suits you. The skinny jeans look good but it sort of depends on the job you’re taking. These are casual looks but ok for some job interviews.  I wish you the very best and hope that you are successful in getting this position.   My Best, Susan R🌷
