I'm not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears at 'The Road' yesterday. I probably cried more during the film than I did reading the book.




JoeyPottr -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (26/1/2010 12:31:19 AM)

Lots of movies
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Girl Interrupted

Godzilla...




hiptobesquare_x -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (26/1/2010 12:39:13 AM)

Most recently Where the Wild Things Are, and I can't even explain why, only that I was an emotional wreck whilst watching it.

I watched Fur for the third time the other night, and still it managed to make me cry. It's just plain wrong.




emogeek -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (26/1/2010 1:00:27 PM)

Many of my key offenders have already been listed, but my number one has to be Grave Of The Fireflies (don't think it's been mentioned yet).

Truly heartbreaking, and turned me into a blubbering mess of man flab for about half an hour afterwards[:(]

I am such a wuss....




DazDaMan -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (26/1/2010 1:27:53 PM)

A new addition is the scene in Star Trek (2009) where Kirk's father accelerates the USS Kelvin straight at the Romulans' Narada, just as his wife gives birth to the awesome that is James Tiberius Kirk...

But it's an awesome scene at the same time.  So few blockbusters can emotionally engage you these days....




Spengler -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (30/1/2010 6:15:30 PM)

300 - Leonidas bids goodbye to his Gorgo. In his final moments, the ultimate warrior reveals himself as a devoted family man at heart.
About Schmidt - "What difference have I made?"
American History X - "God, what did I do?"
Batman Begins - "I miss them, Alfred. I miss them so much."
Black Hawk Down - "Yeah, we got it. You're gonna be ok."

Bobby - Bobby's speech and the devastation his death left behind.
Crash - "He needs the special cloak, he doesn't have it...."
Dumbo - "Baby Mine, don't you cry....."
Glory - "Give 'em hell, 54!"
Good Will Hunting - "Will.....it's not your fault."
The Green Mile - "Please Boss, don't put me in the dark. I's afraid of the dark."
Leon - Leon's goodbye.
The Lion King - obvious.
Fellowship of the Ring - "Of course you are......and I'm coming with you!"
Return of the King - Far too many.
Moulin Rouge - Come What May....
Philadelphia - obvious.
Road to Perdition - "I couldn't do it Dad, I just couldn't do it."
Saving Private Ryan - "James......earn this."
Scrubs, series 1 - My Old Lady
Scrubs, series 3 - Ben's funeral
Shaun of the Dead - "I'm sorry, Mum."
Slumdog Millionaire - happy ending.
Stand By Me - Chris and Gordie by the fire.
United 93.
The Wrestler - "I just don't want you to hate me, is all."

They're just specific moments I can think of.

I agree with you there. Ever since becoming a family man, scenes of loss of loved ones, became a lot more hard hitting!

Went to see Toy Story 2 3D again today. That part where Jessie reminisces about her owner gets me every time.

Also there's:

Brotherhood
Rocky
Rocky Balboa
Empire Strikes Back (the end with the wonderful score, and the optimistic yet downbeat ending)
ROTJ - (When everything is right in the galaxy)
Bridge To Terabithia - even my kids were sobbing
Star Trek
The Wrestler
Brokeback Mountain - the obvious, and it gets me even more now, as the wife walked down the aisle to Wings.




AcE_3000 -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (8/2/2010 6:43:48 AM)

The Passion of The Christ, and the scene in Where The Wild Things Are where Max says goodbye to them and Carol doesn't get to say a proper goodbye and he cries and howls. There's a few more, but I can't remeber.

Me too, and I couldn't explain why either.

The Passion of The Christ,


i'm not religiously inclined in that sense but yes, Passion had me in floods of tears. be interesting to compare the emotional responses from people on either side of the believer / non-believer fence.

Nimrods Son -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (19/2/2010 5:48:31 PM)

When I was a kid, the ending of Small Soldier devistated me! I wanted the toys to stay with Alan Abernathy! [:D]




matty_b -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (19/2/2010 7:12:44 PM)

I've just now rewatched Up and that montage at the beginning just cannot be praised enough. I'm always left  in pieces.

I also agree with the poster above that fatherhood changes your tolerance for tear jerkers. I honestly don't know if I'll ever be able to watch Life is Beautiful again, since becoming a dad.

The Passion of The Christ,


I cried while watching the Passion of the Christ, not for sentimental and emotional reasons though.




Schnorbitz -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (20/2/2010 1:14:32 AM)

Brief Encounter has made me cry the most out of any film.

Up was the most recent.

If they ever make a film out of Coram Boy (I think Alan Parker was developing it?) then I would be extremely disappointed if I didn't cry. My shoulders were shaking when I saw the stage version at the National Theatre.




JoeyPottr -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (20/2/2010 6:52:21 AM)

SPOILERS ****
PRIDE & GLORY " Tell her I love her" (Colin Farrell's bad cop gets beaten to death saving Edward Norton's good cop)
INSTINCT When the poachers shoot and kill that magnificent Gorilla and Anthony Hopkins' reaction to it
LESS THAN ZERO Basically any time Robert Downey Jr's character Julian overdoses, especially his final overdose
K9 When Jerry Lee (a dog) gets shot by the bad guy and James Belushi talking to a recovering Jerry Lee
MARLEY & ME Owen Wilson's character last talk with Marley
FIELD OF DREAMS " It's my father". The father and son game of catch
CADENCE Sweet Bread gets shot and killed by Martin Sheen's psychotic officer
8 SECONDS Luke Perry's Lane Frost gets gored by the bull Red Rock (even worse it's a true story) and the tribute ride

As did I, but I suspect for entirely different reasons. I want those 2 hours back, damnit.

As for a film that made me feel a range of emotions, I'd have to go with American History X.




DazDaMan -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (22/2/2010 4:31:26 PM)

I've not done a proper list yet, but here goes:

Dark Blue World (Tmavomodry Svet)
Star Trek (2009)
The Dam Busters (breaching the second dam, and Gibson's "I have some letters to write")
Titanic (the scene with the band playing "Nearer my God to Thee" over the montage of the other passengers)
Seabiscuit
Champions (the Grand National scene. The music for this sequence is fucking spectacular)
Hidalgo (Viggo Mortensen saying goodbye at the end)
Into the West




justfontaine -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (22/2/2010 9:54:36 PM)

*SPOILERS*

Into The Wild - Chris's sisters voiceover reading the letter for him to come home.
Heat - Mobys score playing at the end as neil and vincent are hand in hand.
American Beauty - Lecster at the table at the end... 'Im Great'.
Lethal Weapon - Riggs contemplating suicide and holding the picture of his wife in his trailer.






shool -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (23/2/2010 2:16:56 PM)

This weekend just gone.

*** Minor spoiler ***

Up in 2 places. One the obvious point after the montage, again not long after when Carl gets arrested for bonking the guy on the head. [:(]




anakin solo -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (1/3/2010 5:56:40 PM)

When i was younger i cried at the end of ET and short circuit when he got blown up, but i get upset during ROTJ when the ewoks are getting killed by the imperial troops on endor and at the end party sequence i think it's mostly to do with the soundtrack more than anything else.

The Lion King
Into the Wild
Stepmom
The Notebook
Shawshank
Gia

wgamador -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (21/3/2010 2:57:04 AM)

The Shawshank Redemption.........i was kind of an Andy Dufresne
The Elephant Man........the treatment of him by the "normal" humans.
Come and See............heartbreaking at every corner.
Mississippi Burning........to think of the children.
Rosewood...........how love and being human has no color.
Miracle at St. Anna............the ending, sure its been done before, but to know that many relationships like that never came full circle.

MovieAddict247 -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (16/4/2010 4:00:42 PM)

So many to choose from...these are the ones which spring to mind

Platoon
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Edward Scissorhands
The Crucible
Titanic
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Finding Nemo
Toy Story
- when all of the cowboy merchandise is replaced with Buzz Lightyear stuff..
Son of Rambow - when Lee makes the speech about his brother.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - both the end, and the "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head" scene
Stand By Me - Chris and Gordy at the campfire, and the very end.
When Harry Met Sally - "You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you, and I hate you, Harry. I really hate you. I hate you." Every time I see that film, that part makes me cry.





Jasper_29 -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (17/4/2010 10:58:27 AM)

The Wrestler.

There's this one scene between him and his daughter that completely blew me away.

Agreed. Also having kids opens the doors for the kind of films you wouldn't normally watch, most of them having some kind of tear-inducing moment.
The classic for that is The Iron Giant. My kids kept saying "Are you crying Daddy? Are you crying?"
"No kids, I've got something in my eye. Well, both eyes actually" [:D]




Kilo_T_Mortal -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (18/4/2010 8:37:02 AM)

Up.

Jesus, that's a great 10 minutes.




Enyuh -> RE: Which films have made you cry? (21/4/2010 7:41:24 PM)

Pay it foward
and for some reason, Hancock.
