Don't even lie!

...You cried during "Click"

davoomac
05-21-2008, 05:09 AM
The most recent ones would be:
I teared up during click. Also in 'dan in real life'. idk why, I must've really felt for the characters :D

'crash' got me right when I thought that store owner shot that little girl.
'green mile' too. that was a while ago, but can't forget that one.

hmm what else? must think somore. I feel like I am missing a whole lot of them and I just can't think of them right now.

BTW Deach: LOL at the *eats raw beef to restore manliness.

I get a bit teary at most chick flicks, but thats because I'm a very sensitive guy, haha!

The only film that truly made me cry because it evoked deep sadness was the film Philadelphia. I had just recently lost one of my best friends in college to AIDS, and this movie pushed all the water faucet buttons in me. I was a gushing firehydrant at the end.

Right when it came out on video, I rented The Green Mile. I had not spoken to anyone about it, nor heard any reviews. Wow...that was a powerful movie and got me pretty choked up..

Also, I hate it when animals get hurt. I was more concerned about the safety of the dog in I Am Legend than anything else going on..haha

The scene in Across The Universe where they do "Let it be." I was totally bawling in the theatre, and I never, ever cry at movies.

Also, Big Fish, at the very end. But I didn't cry as hard as Across The Universe. lol

I highly recommend that movie, but if you wanna see just that scene here it is:

There's been a couple that get me pretty choked up - no matter how many times I see it. As previously mentioned - "The Green Mile" is the main one... but "Saving Private Ryan" gets me too. Other ones that I've gotten pretty bad about would include the very last scene in "The Shawshank Redemption" and some parts on "Fools Rush In".

It's kinda funny how two of those movies were written by a horror writer - Stephen King. LOL

There was a late 90's remake of Black Beauty - where this time they actually stuck close to the book and told it from the point of view of the horse, just like the book. Some chapters were omitted (like Ginger's Story), but that's because if you saw those played out you'd slit your wrists.

Why it makes me cry isn't because it's really accurate as to how you should treat animals, it's because it makes you stop, think, and question how we do it, and that always leads to better understanding and better methods.

But there's more. See, this horse I sometimes mention, she was like my best friend, and I sold her out to move here. Oh sure the woman promised she'd never be sold, but a horse's place in the family is always tenuous. It's a personal nightmare of mine that she ends up like Black Beauty did, but without me there to rescue her.

It's not so irrational, considering that was the state I found her in when I bought her as a yearling, skin and bone. Is she still alive? Doing the math, if she's been well looked-after, she should be.

Also horse-related, when Gandalf whistales for Shadowfax, who appears with attitude - that makes me tear up a bit because that's how she rolled as well.

At the end of The Iron Giant when the giant is leaving to intercept the missile, and Hogarth says "I love you". I don't cry, but it gets me every time I watch it, even if I'm listening to the commentary track.

Does anyone tear up on happy scenes? Mulan gets me every time at the end - "Take this so your family will know what you've done for me. And this, so the world will know what you've done for China" then all the people bow. Or maybe I just have a thing for bowing to honor someone. The Last Samurai and LotR:RotK both had bowing scenes that made me tear.

Moulin Rouge, Pan's Labyrinth - both good tragedies. The end of Pay It Forward - definite tear-jerker.

And THIS is my favorite scene, of my favorite movie. And it is sad too

Being a manly male man-type person, I never cry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64a_1fWTsls), of course.

But I, um... have a friend who always gets a bit weepy during the "When Somebody Loved Me" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is_hpHzEMiE) portion of Toy Story 2.

Man, that always gets me.

Er... I mean "him".

It gets him. My friend, that is.

Not me.

More recently, my friend got a little choked up at the end of Slumdog Millionaire.

i dont usually cry at movies - the closest i usually get is 'tearing up' - so i'm gonna count that. :)

but, i did tear up during 'magnolia' i'm pretty sure - or i felt like i should be.

i know i almost cried during 'finding neverland' - because...wait, did someone's mom die in that movie?? i think thats why - i would never want my mom to die

i might've almost cried during some animated movie - like a disney one...either 'lion king' (a recent veiwing) or maybe it was 'persepolis' (not at all a disney movie)

anyway....


how embarrassing - i cry during the weirdest moviiieeees. esp. really cheesy ones sometimes.

LOL, I think everyone cried at that scene. I seen that movie at release, when I was a kid, and remembers seeing everyone (man, woman, and child) crying. It's kind of funny now that I think back at it. Hah!

Immortal Beloved (about Beethoven) did it for me. Just thinking that his whole life went to hell over missing his one true love, by seconds on a stairwell, bummed me out. :(

I'm pretty sappy, so the list is long. :o Thankfully, I am a girl, so I don't have to worry about manning up.

Ugly crying, when you start gasping, and making weird choking noises, is "Beaches." I saw it with my Mom, and my aunt and we were all dying in that one.

Other chick flicks that did it, Steel Magnolias (though a great laugh during the crying part thanks to Olympia Dukakis), Terms of Endearment, Ghost...

And oh, if you haven't seen "The Champ" with Jon Voight (I'm reallly dating myself here), that one is a sobfest at the end.

i remember watching that on the ship while we were out at sea. about 15 dudes gathered round watching this movie in our living space. at the end, we all quietly went to bed. didnt make a sound. didnt even breathe for fear of letting any other man there know that our noses were a little runny from our eyes glassing over. {/TMI}

there were many parts that got me choked up. but the one that got me was when crooked nose guy carries marley to the car. my whole body quivered as tears uncontrollably streamed down my face. my gf started crying cuz she saw me crying. lol.

i'm usually ok about keeping the tears back, despite the big knot that developes in the back of my throat. but this movie really got me, cuz marley was exactly like my p.i.t.a. german shepard. i mean, EXACTLY!!! i too, had to carry my dog to his last car-ride. every step felt like my legs were made of lead... like i said, that scene was heart-wrenching...

Oh, that one killed me. Except, it wasn't Pikachu. It was Ash.

Another movie that got me was Bicentennial Man. That was the saddest ending I had ever seen.

While not a movie, the infamous "Bye bye, Butterfree" scene in the Pokemon anime. Just thinking about it almost brings me to tears.

There have been other Pokemon scenes that made me sad, but never on that level.

There have also been other tear-jerking anime moments, most notably graduation and post-grad at the end of Azumanga Daioh (especially when Kagura cried).

I'm gettin' all choked up thinking about this... :(

"Lonely Are The Brave" stands out for me. OK - it's an old film, but I'm an old man. At the end , where his horse is killed; so symbolic, so predictable, so sad.

It was on TV again not long ago. Gets me every time.

Grave of the fireflies for me too. I could never watch that again ever, it is too heart rending.
Pay it forward got me howling.
Totoro, when granny runs to meet mai after she is found, *sob*
Anna and the king (the modern version of The king and I) when various peeps die and/or are killed.
Signs, when his wife dies. Parts of that film are totally hilarious too. I love the foil hats.
The BBC adaptation of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. When they meet up by accident at the railway station, blimey.
And lots that peeps have already mentioned.
I kept tearing up throughout The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion the witch and the Wardrobe but that was purely from yawning my way through the whole boringness of it.

I heard about the emotion level of that movie and decided to avoid it like the Plague. I don't watch things that I know will make me cry.

Grave of the fireflies for me too. I could never watch that again ever, it is too heart rending.
Pay it forward got me howling.
Totoro, when granny runs to meet mai after she is found, *sob*
Anna and the king (the modern version of The king and I) when various peeps die and/or are killed.
Signs, when his wife dies. Parts of that film are totally hilarious too. I love the foil hats.
The BBC adaptation of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. When they meet up by accident at the railway station, blimey.
And lots that peeps have already mentioned.
I kept tearing up throughout The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion the witch and the Wardrobe but that was purely from yawning my way through the whole boringness of it.


i watched grave of the fireflies for the first time last night and right after i just HAD to watch totoro. i needed something happyish <.<

I had forgotten about that film, but I do recall tearing up a bit.


[…] and just recently, 'Up' (which, if you haven't seen it yet - YOU MUST!)


Up seriously got to me.


Not a movie but this video almost did it...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJIsbvyhO0o

Yes, that video is very moving.

I am sure there are others that simply aren't coming to mind right now.

I love dramas and enjoy when a film can move me deeply. But it is always harder with the real stuff. I cried hard when we watched Sicko. That was painful.

I miss her :(

Titanic has made me cry every time I watch it. I don't know why I keep doing it, but some drops of tears come out during the breaking of the ship and when Rose finds out Jack is dead. I think the reason has to be the slow music beat of the song My Heart will Go on.

Ooh, two recent Netflix movies made me cry like crazy.

The first was "Taking Chance," with Kevin Bacon as a Marine escorting home the body of a fallen Marine. That was tough, especially as someone married to a Naval officer who spent a year in Iraq. No matter what your politics, it is the true story of an honorable tribute to a fallen American.

The second was the saddest movie I have ever seen. It was corny in spots, but I was gasping for air and hyperventilating. It is "Hachi" about the true story of a dog that waited on its master every day at the train station for ten years. The true story was about a dog in Japan, but the movie stars Richard Gere. It was a sobbing, hysterical kind of crying. The kind where you cannot even try to cry pretty. You are heaving and bent over, and your body is racked with sobs. Maybe it is just me, but that movie tore me up.

Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights"... that movie has one of the funniest bits ever, when he is watching the blind flower girl, and the end always makes me cry. Not bad for a silent movie. One of my all time favorite movies, and I have seen a lot of them.

Ok, maybe I just have some funky emotions, but these two movies made me cry: District 9 and Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Just watched episode 4 of season 2 of 8 Simple Rules (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_Simple_Rules) (2003), when John Ritter's character, Paul Hennessy, dies. It really touched me, because John Ritter died in real life and I kept imagining that his real family must have felt and gone through the same thing as his family in the TV show. And, I was always a fan of John Ritter. Man, it really needs something to make me cry, but that show was just too real for me.

"Once". I watched it again Sunday morning when my wife was out of town, and I teared up at several points, most notably the scene in the music store after they meet, and the ending as she's playing her piano. As they say repeatedly in the movie: "Right. Brilliant".

06-01-2010, 01:14 PM
man, i cant believe that no one has said marley and me.

there were many parts that got me choked up. but the one that got me was when crooked nose guy carries marley to the car. my whole body quivered as tears uncontrollably streamed down my face. my gf started crying cuz she saw me crying. lol.

i'm usually ok about keeping the tears back, despite the big knot that developes in the back of my throat. but this movie really got me, cuz marley was exactly like my p.i.t.a. german shepard. i mean, EXACTLY!!! i too, had to carry my dog to his last car-ride. every step felt like my legs were made of lead... like i said, that scene was heart-wrenching...

aaaaaaand, there's that knot choking back the tears...

I was planning on adding "Marley and Me". We had just lost our German Shepherd a few months before we saw it. We'd only had him for three years (he was nine when we got him because his owner had cancer). But we had also lost a 13 year old lab in '03 that we had had since he was 4 months old. My wife and I were both bawling at the end of the movie, and decided to wait til the theater emptied out a bit so no one would see us. But apparently the other 50 people crying had the same idea. We were lucky though, because with both of our dogs, our vet came to the house. So we didn't have that last car ride ordeal.
Also, "Saving Private Ryan" at various points. My mom's father was in D-day and was killed on July 11th 1944 about 15 miles from the beaches. Over a month to get less than 20 miles. I didn't know much about him (my mom was only 15 months old when he died), and so that movie was pretty rough. Important though. I'm not sure I would want to see it again.

great thread davoomac.

There are quite a few actually.

The one that got me twitching the most was probably "Awakenings" with Robert DeNiro and Robin Williams. An unlikely duo to give you a tearjerker I know, but I'll never forget watching it for the first time with my girlfriend on video...a couple of scenes just got me going so bad I actually couldn't stop crying. I was sobbing. No other film has made me cry like that before or since.

Well it's OK to shed a tear or two.

My Sister's Keeper - Caleb Deschanel's cinematography on this one done it I think, along with a touching story.

There's a few more but that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

But there's more. See, this horse I sometimes mention, she was like my best friend, and I sold her out to move here. Oh sure the woman promised she'd never be sold, but a horse's place in the family is always tenuous. It's a personal nightmare of mine that she ends up like Black Beauty did, but without me there to rescue her.
I hear you sister. Over my lifetime I've only had two horses for the same reason. Took me a long time to give up the first one, even though she really wasn't the one for me. Have a great mare now, but only because I found someone even less likely to give up the first one than me.

I don't cry ever at movies. I remember welling up once but I couldn't tell you the movie. It might have been Up or Toy Story 3.
The only time I remember crying was when I was young. Maybe pre-teen and I was watching a movie called "Moscow on the Hudson" starring Robin Williams. He plays a Russian circus musician who has a hard life but visits New York City with the circus. There is a scene where he decides to defect and seek asylum in the US. When he does it, the rest of the group is forced back on the tour bus. He chases the tour bus to try to get his friend to defect as well (it was originally that friend's idea but he chickened out at the last minute). As he is running down the NY street he is crying with tears of joy that he is free but also tears of sadness because he is alone in a foreign country. I was an 11 year old balling my eyes out. I think I found the rest of the movie boring.
That was the only time I saw it. But I remember it well. I am sure that if I went back to watch it today, I would find it laughable. But that's the only movie I can remember shedding a tear for.

Maybe we should also list what doesn't make us cry even though it makes a lot of others cry.

Click and Titanic top that list for me.

I don't remember crying at Up, but I probably did, one soulmate dying before getting to their big adventure sounds tear jerking but I don't remember it. When I even think of Private Ryan at the end when he questions his value it makes me tear up. Up just doesn't do that for me.

He finds an extra pages in the "adventure journal" that he never noticed before, where his wife had put pictures from their marriage, explaining that their time together was her "adventure", along with a final message telling him to go on and live his life.

And this gives him the strength to literally let go of his house and to symbolically "let go" of his emotional baggage and attachment to the past.

I'm getting a bit watery-eyed just thinking about it...

Okay let's be honest, which movies made you cry?

Star Trek II, when Spock died. I spent a lot of growing-up years with Spock and to see him die just ate me up. I bawled like Captain Kirk...
King Kong (the original, not the fluffy, irrelevant Jackson remake), when King Kong died from his fall off the Empire State building. Man, that big ape was such a tragic character.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939, not that saccharine, silly and very lame cartoon remake), when Esmerelda leaves and Quasimodo is alone, unloved. He rests his head against a gargoyle and pines, "Why was I not made of stone like thee?" Very moving, but I truly loved the book a lot more. (No one can get choked up over cartoon characters, anyway... that would be weird...)
Gandhi, when Godse shoots him, and all the hopes he nurtured are shattered. Really powerful moment in film. Even more so than the death of Lawrence at the beginning of Lawrence of Arabia.
M*A*S*H - okay not a movie, but a TV series. When Radar announced the death of Henry Blake. And again when the war ends (the finale).
Away From Her - a couple of times, but especially when Gordon Pinsent realizes his wife, suffering from Alzheimer's, no longer loves him, and has forgotten what they mean together. A real tear jerker.

the only movie that ever made me cry was tae-guk-gee (i forgot how to spell that) brother hood of war

the ending is pretty tragic, a 2 brothers very close to each other are drafted into the korean war and the older one does anything to get his younger brother out of the army, and drama insues

Saw that. Great, Korean film about a war that seldom gets recalled here. Really good acting, a lot like Saving Private Ryan in its depth.

I bought a box set of 12 Andy Sidaris movies for $5 at Wal-Mart last weekend. Called Girls, Guns, & G-Strings. Sounded like a good combination.

I watched two of the films, mostly at fast-foward speed, last night. Fast forward because the dialogue is so wooden you'd think they were trees talking.

I usually enjoy B-flicks, but these are winceable. The special effects are giggle fodder. Even the jiggle-factor was snoozeable.

They were so bad, so really, really awfully bad, that they drove me to tears. Sure, maybe tears of laughter at times, but still tears.

I haven't cried so much over a film since Invasion of the Pod People.

I had a really weird moment when I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. The scene were Hermione uses her magic to let her parents forget that she has even exist. I know that's weird, but for me this was one of the saddest moments in this movie!
Toy Story 3 was also sad.

And I cried at the final end of Scrubs! :( I knew that I would miss JD.

The endings of Cinema Paradiso, Imitation of Life, and.... (go figure...) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

My first time seeing Cinema Paradiso was as a rental, and I totally lost it at the ending. I was SO GLAD that I was sitting alone in my living room sobbing, as opposed to being in a movie theatre!

The opening montage in Up was masterfully done. It's rare that a movie can get tears out of me in the first 10 minutes without any words...

I also have this weird thing for military/historical things... i.e. when the 54th Massachusettes is going off to storm Fort Wagner in Glory and all the one white dude yells "Give 'em hell 54th." and then all the other white dudes start cheering for them... stuff like that gets me. Or saluting of fallen comrades... like at the end of Saving Private Ryan when he salutes the grave of Capt. Miller... man...

I don't mind confessing to crying a lot during movies. I think it demonstrates empathy - the only thing that stands between civilisation and the behaviour that leads to the kind of school massacres we have seen in the US too often.

Last time, I cried? Two nights ago. We watched Forrest Gump with my daughter (our second time, her first) and we all wept buckets at various points in the movie.

Basically, my kind of movie is one in which I really care about the fate of the protagonists and feel their joys and pain. I have NO interest in the majority of macho movies in which the hero tend to kill three times as many people as the villain. IMHO we went off the rails from the moment the cowboy in the white hat murdered more guys in black hats than those baddies had killed.

I've seen Les Miserables as a live musical probably a half-dozen times over the years. Not to mention the PBS concert specials and owning the CDs, etc.

So you'd think I'd be desensitized to it by now, and that I wouldn't get all throat-lumpy when watching the movie, right?

Nope.

Granted, I was able to hold it down to about 0.6 Piccolos*, but still...

JJ

* The "Piccolo" being the official unit of measure of a movie's ability to make you cry. "Brian's Song" is the basic benchmark, at 1.0 Piccolos.

Everyone goes on about Les Miserables being tear jerking but I don't get it at all.

Didn't get even the slightest quiver from me or my girlfriend. And no, we not heartless we're both soft as sh1t. I just have absolutely no idea what's meant to be so moving about it?

Most moving scene? The first few minutes of Pixar's 'UP' or the 'When somebody loves you' scene from Toy Story 2.

These two made me cry - two movies in which I already know/knew what's going to happen:

LOTR: The Return of the King; I know what's going to happen at the Grey Havens but I cried anyway. It was joy and sadness all wrapped up together.
(BTW - the last sentence in the book does it to me too!)

I cannot make it through the opening credits of Gods & Generals. The opening credits, mind you. The music with the regimental flags flappin' and knowing all the horror of that war to follow gets me every time.

"Its A Wonderful Life" always gets me when James Stewart is panicking and everyone wants their money - and one old lady says "Can I just have $10 to get me over the weekend?". Brilliant movie.

Most recent movie to get me choked up and fighting back a manly tear is "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" starring Tom Hanks and Max von Sydow. Great story with a lovely sad ending that had the wife and eye with very leaky eyes.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This movie is so close to my heart. I empathize so much with the main character, Charlie, as he struggles with anxiety and emotional trauma. I had such an emotional episode/mini-existential crisis after I watched this movie. You guys should definitely look into it.

Actually, at the teen newspaper I work at over here in Atlanta, I did a collaborative movie review of it (with a compare/contrast of it to The Breakfast Club). You guys should totally check it out!!! Here's the link (http://www.voxteencommunications.org/blog/culture/blogentry.aspx?BlogEntryID=10536229) (My review is the first one; My real name is Akil).

High Fidelity is a fantastic movie, and the last great movie that John Cusack has made. I would totally like Breakfast at Tiffany's if it didn't have the most racist character ever to be in a movie in it.

"ET - The Extra-Terrestrial" when ET says goodbye to Elliot.

"It's A Wonderful Life" at the end when all the townspeople come piling in to the house to donate their money to George.

"A League of Their Own" when the rosters are put up for who made the team, and the one woman who can't read is standing there so upset, then one of the other players comes over and helps her, her reaction gets me every single time.

"Mash" TV series, when Houlihan (Loretta Swit) is berating the nurses in their tent and she ultimately admits in a sob moment, pulling her breath in, that she just wants to be invited for a cup of coffee.

Many more to come as I remember them.
