This thread is Kiki (Katie)'s idea. She suggested a "tearjerking" movies thread, so...this is all her. I'm just getting the ball rolling. Okay, I'm a very emotional guy. Very emotional. I cry at the drop of a hat. NOOOOOO! Don't drop that hat! Darn! Now look what you made me do: Ahem. Anyway... I cry very easily at movies too, even if the movie isn't necessarily sad. So here are a few of the four-hanky movies that make me well up: Love Story (1970) - yes, it's a corny, cliched film, but I just can't help blubbering at the simple plot: rich boy meets poor girl; rich boy marries poor girl; girl gets a disease; girl dies. I'm a goner right at the very beginning, when we see a huddled Ryan O'Neal sitting on the bleachers in the snow alone, reminiscing about his lost love, as the haunting theme from the movie plays in the background... Schindler's List (1993) - well, the whole movie is extremely sad and depressing, obviously, but one of the many moments that stand out for me is at the end, when Schindler breaks down, wishing he could have saved more lives... Carrie (1976) - yep, it's a horror film, and the director, Brian De Palma, is a master at toying with one's emotions; the prom sequence before Carrie's final rage is excrutiating, because we know what's going to happen, but De Palma stretches the scenes of Carrie's once-in-a-lifetime happiness with her dream date almost to the breaking point. The scenes of Carrie's awkardness at feeling "pretty" and slow dancing with her date are just so sad to me... It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - the scene where James Stewart tearfully prays in the bar always gets me, never fails... There are many more, but I just wanted to start this for Katie. I'll add some more later.
