Saving Private Ryan
Philadelphia. I don't think i've ever shed as much tears watching a film as i did this one. As someone else mentioned, when i do cry at movies it's not so much at the "sad parts" but when someone overcomes a huge adversity. I'm more apt to cry over music than a film (but if a film combines the right acting with the right score, i'm really a goner)
I remember crying at Edward II (Derek Jarmin's version) when Annie Lennox seranades Edward and his banished lover - i was completely overwhelmed with emotions - partically because i'm one of the hugest Annie Lennox fans in the universe at at the time this was in the theatre, i didn't even know she was going to be in it (when i saw her name in the opening credits, i was like "WHAAAT?" - then she comes out totally angelic and sings so beautifully while i was already starting to feel sad for the characters, i was totally bawling.
I don't often cry in movies. But I remember crying in
Tarzan (weird hey)
Prince Caspian (In that battle where some of them get shut inside the castle walls and all the others can do is watch them die)
I always get a bit choked up in 1962's Days of Wine and Roses. In the story Jack Lemmon's character is a heavy drinker who falls in love with a woman who's never touched alcohol. He convinces her to start drinking and the two of them eventually get married but become serious alcoholics.
In the end, Jack Lemmon's character is able to recover from alcoholism, and finally be a good father to his daughter. But tragically, his wife is unable (and unwilling) to quit and ends up leaving them. It's quite sad because he knows he's responsible for introducing her to alcohol in the first place, but now he's recovered and she hasn't. The last shot is Jack Lemmon looking out his window as she leaves, with a neon BAR side flashing in the distant. ::sniff::
I really wanted to see Miss Potter,. but I missed it...
Lol I find the Prince Caspian thing funny though. No offense or anything.
I cried during Miss Potter, too. I felt as though I could relate to her somewhat.
Actually yeah, Most of the time I was laughing in that movie, but not that bit, I thought it was sad.
The Elephant Man (1980) - David Lynch's surreal, beautiful film based on the life of Joseph (John) Merrick (John Hurt), a man with a horrible, disfiguring disease. Merrick is a sideshow attraction, treated like an animal, before he is rescued by Frederick Treves (Anthony Hopkins), a sympathetic doctor who helps Merrick speak properly and teaches him proper etiquette. Soon, Merrick becomes the toast of London society, and is visited by the most important people of the day...but, despite his good intentions, is Treves simply another exploiter of Merrick?
The Elephant Man was produced by Mel Brooks, who wanted to branch out into "serious" filmmaking under the Brooksfilms banner. Several actors were considered for Merrick, but most turned the role down, as he would be buried under mounds of makeup. John Hurt accepted the role, fresh off his successes as the mad Caligula in I, Claudius and one of the doomed crew members in Alien (Hurt later good-naturedly spoofed this memorable moment in Brooks's Spaceballs). Despite the amazing makeup (which was molded from the actual remains of Merrick), Hurt turns in a heartbreaking performance. Once one is immersed in the film, he/she tends to forget Merrick's appearance; that's how good Hurt is.
Anthony Hopkins is solid as Treves, upon whose memoirs the film is partially based. John Gielgud, Wendy Hiller and Brooks's wife Anne Bancroft also appear. This was David Lynch's first major film. Brooks had been impressed by the director's Eraserhead, and hired him to tell Merrick's story. Like that film, The Elephant Man is shot in moody, dreamy black and white.
Yeah, I just finished watchin P.S. I Love You for the first time. I have never cried soo much in one movie before. The thought of your spouse dying and trying to move on really affected me because I would be lost without my husband. Its a love story in gerneral, and there are some really romantic scenes. And I must say Gerard Butler is such a hottie.
Tru Confessions. I know, I know...it was a disney channel movie *I think it came out around 2001/2002* but I always thought it was a really good story and touching.
Bridge to Terabithia ! I just told the girl I was watching it with that I had tears cause she ate the my last milkduds I think she fell for it.Just for the record I never cry watching movies alright I am spilling my heart out to you guy's so keep this a secret.
Go ahead and say it's a kid's movie but I still do get choked up, especially at the end. <333 Actually, there's a LOT of moments in Disney that manage to make Ailie teary. lol X3
To tell the truth, I cried at that movie too, when the girl died.
Marley & Me makes me cry every time.
Life As a House made me cry. Then I watched it when I found out my dad had cancer and I cried even harder. I haven't watched it since my dad passed away.
Funny People had a few scenes that got me choked up!
My Girl. When I was little this just about killed me!
Nobody mentioned An American Crime yet. Long story short it is about the worst case of child abuse in the State Indiana, Sylvia Likens. You can read about on Wikipedia I will spare you all of details just case some people are sensitive on this. The worst part after reading about case and watching the movie is seeing what they cut out because it was too horrible to put in the movie. It was one of those movies that opened my eyes up to some of the messed up stuff that happens in this world.
Here is my list:
Terms of Endearment
The Elephant Man
The Joy Luck Club
The World According to Garp
The Little Princess
It's A Beautiful Life
For The Boys
Cried at that too.
I've got to say:
The Butterfly Effect: By changing the past, he drastically alters the future, and some of them are extreamly sad.
Marley and Me: Don't trust a movie by its trailers....
A.I. Artifisal Intelligence: The ending with the mom... Not to mention the scrap yard carniavl attraction.
Pay it Forward: Again, the end.
Click: When he almost dies, and regrets fastforwarding.
Now that I remember, I believe Prancer also made me cry. Unfortunately I never finished it, the movie theater had issues with the film and it stopped about halfway through (yes, I'm just that old ).
