"Passion Of The Christ." I honestly could barely keep it together while watching it. I could feel tears welling up, throat tightening up, the whole works. I did not actually allow any tears to roll down the face, but it took everything in me to stop it from happening. Just thinking of images from the movie right now is starting the process a little. The movie was so powerful that it's not one I could continually watch over and over. When I was a kid, in 1982, it was "E.T." It crushed me when the friendly little alien died. :blush: I'm not proud to admit this because it was a "chick flick," but the movie "Titanic" got to me some a few years back. :blush: Not because of the romance between Jack and Rose coming to an end when Jack drowned, but because of all the sad scenes of people realizing they were going to die as the ship was slowly sinking, like the immigrant mother tucking her children in bed and trying to reassure them somehow that things were going to be ok while they were locked below deck and had no chance of escape. Also, a scene where a ship employee that had to break up a fight amongst panicked people trying to get into a life boat by shooting his gun into the air became very heart wrenching when he realized how grim the situation was and decided to shoot himself in the head despite the pleas from his fellow shipmates.

Than one time I have no clue why but we were watching Field of Dreams and I started crying at the end when Ray wanted to have a catch with his dad. Now mind you I have seen this movie a million times but for some reason it got me an emotional state, than my wife who was my girlfriend at the time looked at me and started laughing while doing the awww honey thats cute.

Most things in movies don't affect me, but a dog dying will get me every time. I'm so soft-hearted when it comes to animals, it's not even funny. I can watch people die in a war movie all day without shedding a single tear. The minute someone's dog dies, though, I just lose it.

Okay, dude: 50 First Dates? It kind of stands out on the list there. I SAW 50FDs. It was good. And my mom cried at the ending. But it's nowhere near as powerful as the others on your list.

Just so you know.

Actually, the scene that almost got me was when he was driving away on the boat and her dad gave him tapes to listen to and he put them in. And you know what they were... and Sandler starts yelling. That was the most moving part.

Anyhow...

The book Stone Fox was remade into a movie in 1987. There's a tearjerker. I don't want to give anything away... but I will anyway. THE DOG DIES IN THE END TO SAVE THE FARM. Stone Fox, the Indian, lets the boy win, and the boy has to carry his dog over the finish line.

Maybe it was the age I was when I first read the story. Maybe it's the combination of all those great sacrifices that carry this story. But I can tear up just THINKING about that one.

:)

Its the ending that gets me. She wakes up and she has a daughter. The sacrificial love of both Henry and her dad, to me was overwhelming and it got me :)

Another goofy one that made me get all misty was Shallow Hal.

Remember Hal sees the beauty on the inside of people displayed as outward beauty. When the little girl at the burn unit of the hospital, who he previously saw as a cute little girl, comes out and she is disfigured in her face by burns... yep... I completely lost it. Get misty just thinking about it.

Shallow Hal was a fantastic movie! I didn't cry when I watched it but I just wanted to second that one.

What Dreams May Come got to me at the time. I actually forgot about it until I was reading through the thread. Me and the 'Ol lady got all misty eyed when we watched it. In fact she bawled like a baby and made me hold her through a lot of it. Great movie!:hug:

Never full out cried, the closest I came was at the end of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
Best movies I have ever seen and I dont think anyone will ever top them. But just realizing "oh my god, it's the end, there will never be another one (another good one)" nearly cried. and the music didnt help.

Yeah, first time when Old Yeller died

Sands of Iwo Jima, when the Duke died

The Notebook when the the old couple died

Pasion of the Christ when Jesus died (and several other places)

Sergeant York, when Alvin got saved

The biggest snot-slinger for me was Facing the Giants, a Christian movie made by a church in GA. Someone gave us a copy when home on furlough. Was awesome.

Never fails to bring a couple of tears of joy to my eye. :D

The scene in Titanic with the musicians gets to me a little bit. They decide to stop playing and walk away. Then they all stop when one man decides to stay and keep playing his violin until the ship goes down. They then all decide to carry on playing with him. Pretty powerful scene.

Forrest Gump is also pretty difficult to keep back the tears sometimes when he's talking at Jenny's gravesite. Also when he loses his best good friend Bubba.

I love some of Chuck Jones' stuff but what I absolutely detest is his "Tom and Jerry" stuff. I can't stand 'em.. way to feminine compared to their earlier versions... and not nearly as funny.

I agree, Chuck Jones was completely out of his element with Tom and Jerry. I think the main problem is he just tried to add too much depth to them. Tom and Jerry are supposed to be about simple, mindless violence. There's just no room for depth. :D

Now, the all-important Chuck Jones question, though. Greatest cartoon ever: "What's Opera, Doc?" or "The Rabbit of Seville"? My dad and I have been debating over this for years.

Well, greatest cartoon of all time, IMO, has to go to either Tex Avery's Cat's Meow (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2yeav_tex-avery-cats-meow1957_creation).. the "meow" scene at the end is absolutely classic or to his equally classic Droopy - The Three Little Pups (http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance/search/tex+avery+wolf/video/x2b70s_tex-avery-droopy-the-three-little-p_fun)... the slow talking southern wolf is my all time favorite cartoon character!

But of the 2 Jones flicks you mention I would go with "What's Opera, Doc?".. "kill da wabbit" will live forever in cartoon royalty!

lbeaty1981
Sep 14th 2007, 02:34 PM
I'm not a big Tex Avery fan, but I'll agree that "The Cat's Meow" is one of his greatest works (possibly even his greatest). While I prefer "The Rabbit of Seville" to "What's Opera, Doc?" I do admit they're both excellent pieces. Back in high school, I remember our teacher decided to play some Vagner for us while we were having some reading time. After a couple of minutes, though, we had to ask her to turn it off. All that any of us could think of while it was playing was "Kill the Wabbit!" :lol:

Hey, Hey... don't get me wrong.. I absolutely LOVE Tom & Jerry and feel it is the standard by which all else is measured, especially on a long running scale.

The ONLY Tom and Jerry I don't like is Chuck Jones era. He made them too wimpy and feminine. Totally out of character IMO.

But I love the other eras of Tom and Jerry, especially the 40's and 50's MGM version by Hanna Barbera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_and_Jerry_(MGM)#Hanna-Barbera_era_.281940_.E2.80.93_1958.29). That is the measuring stick.

Chuck Jones era (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_and_Jerry_(MGM)#Chuck_Jones_era_.281963_.E2.80 .93_1967.29) blasphemed this era IMO.

nice to know I'm not the only big guy with a soft heart.... reading through this thread you guys have named about every movie I've ever cried at. ;)

Big T - Martian Child definitely; but my oldest son is Autistic and my wife and I are Foster parents.

Fight Club / Robert Paulson scene definitely as well -- but that whole movie was SO emotionally charged that I don't think you could escape that movie without sadness, rage, and just about every other emotion. The first time I saw it I was simply exhausted afterward.

Not sure if anyone remembered this one - but I remember the first time I saw Signs and near the end where Mel Gibson's character is freaking out over his son potentially dieing -- swearing against God while begging him at the same time -- it was so unbelievably human and accurate. M Night's best film.

and lots more - of course.... who didn't cry for Old Yeller? I did.

In retrospect, the first work of the Spirit on me was softening my heart, and this showed itself when I was watching films. Watching Monsters Inc. early last year was the first time it happened :lol: these days, it doesn't take so much, just an authentic sentimental scene (understated preferably) and I'll be filling up :D

LOL.. That is funny.. I was watching that movie last night (Memorial Weekend), and it got me in the end also.. I also like to watch drama movies and 'The Bridge of Madison' got me real good also; also P.S. I love you..

Nothing wrong with a man showing his emotions

I was watching an old 40s movie last night called Waterloo Bridge. It was about an English officer who had fallen in love with a ballet dancer. He is sent to the front before they could get married. One day while reading the paper, she reads what she thinks is her fiance's name on thelocal casulty list. Then she just falls apart.

It really got to me. Very very sad movie.

I have on a few occasions, which is remarkable for me since I have spent all my life violently keeping my emotions inside. When the tears come out, they come out hard. I remember crying at the end of "Click" with Adam Sandler, because I thought of the harshness of the situation, just a few wrong choices can destroy something that can mean so much, like the love others show you. I also teared up over an episode of S*ex and the C*ity season 6, part 1, in the episode where Miranda admits to Steve, after both of them found other people who they thought would make them happy, that she loves him and she starts crying and tells him to not look at her and that she is sorry after all of it that she waited until then, and then Steve says its okay and also says to her "You're the one." The music that played and the raw emotion, it still makes me well up.

Most things in movies don't affect me, but a dog dying will get me every time. I'm so soft-hearted when it comes to animals, it's not even funny. I can watch people die in a war movie all day without shedding a single tear. The minute someone's dog dies, though, I just lose it.


I Am Legend?

I also nearly cried at the end of the new Indiana Jones...mostly because I was never going to get that time or money back ever again.

I do cry if the movie is sad, and what has been getting to me lately is the television commerical about the abused dogs and cats with the sad song playing in the background, as they show each abused animal. The other thing that gets to me every time is that song Dance Cinderella, it reminds me of my little daughter whom I am currently seperated from at the moment.....

Well, the movie I cried the most on was Passion of the Christ.

I cried on all three Lord of the Rings movies... When Gandolf died in the first one, the scene where Smegol/Gollum have their argument and when Gollum calls Smegol a murderer.... (still gets me), and the third one where Theodin dies.

I also cried watching the movie version of The Hiding Place.

Oh jeez, that one gets me too. That one's almost as bad as the Pedigree one filmed in the animal shelter, with the voice-over for the dogs saying "I'm a good dog" and "I just want to go home." Gets me misty-eyed just thinking about that one....

I also nearly cried at the end of the new Indiana Jones...mostly because I was never going to get that time or money back ever again.:rofl::rofl:

I used to not cry at movies...not in the "I'm MANLY AND I NEVER CRY!" kind of way, but more that I simply have a very logical, analytical mind and it always kept movies at that certain - it's not real, so it can not move me - distance.

Then, about three years ago, for other reasons, I started praying that God would soften and give me a more compassionate heart.

I'm not "there" yet, but the Lord has been working, and as a side-effect, I do cry at some movies now and again. No bawling, mind you...but a tear or two will run down.

I find that I still have complete control over it. No movie makes me cry against my will (at least none that I've seen). I can choose to be soft about it and let myself get into the story, or I can tell myself for whatever reason (like maybe my wife isn't crying), that I'm not going to cry and I won't, period.

The "Let It Be" scene in Across the Universe got me. As did "I Have a Love" and the final scene in West Side Story--at least, it did when I saw it in a theatre the other day. I haven't seen the movie in forever. Also, my new "least favorite people in the world" are the ones around me at that play who laughed nervously when they jumped at the gunshot. I DON'T CARE IF IT MADE YOU JUMP. IT IS STILL NOT FUNNY. IT IS THE SINGLE MOST SERIOUS MOMENT IN THE WHOLE PLAY. DO NOT LAUGH.

Discuss: Is "crying because of a musical based on Romeo and Juliet" actually the least manly thing you can do, or is it just in the top five? Oh, well, whatever.

I cried during We Were Soldiers, at the end when it flashed the names of the real men who were lost in the battle.
Also, the Passion of the Christ makes me cry, can only watch that about once a year.

Reading the book Lone Survivor made me cry. Reading about such intense heroism just brought it out of me. From everyone I have talked to so far about the book, everyone I know that has read it has cried. Crazy.

It's completely inappropriate, I guess people need a way to release the tension that built up to that point, but it destroys the mood of the setting.

I wouldn't call myself emotionless by any means, but I've never cried at a movie. I'm probably going to get burned for this, but I came really close during Star Wars Episode III when Mace Windu died. *ducks, hides head and runs away* I'm not a nerd, I promise!

I don't know how anyone who lost someone they loved (ex-FDNY) during 9-11 didn't cry during Reign Over Me when Adam Sandler finally opened up to his mother and father-in-law, and when the attorney shoved the picture of his family (they were all dead) on his desk.

I won't be able to watch it again... but anyone who knows the guilt of surviving it when by all rights you shouldn't have and knowing someone else was in your place, even if you didn't know them, has dealt with the issues in this movie.

Miracle

about the 1980 US Olympic Hockey team.

America was experiencing inflation, a gas shortage, the Iranian hostage crisis, a loss in confidence in Jimmy Carter....

I remember vividly watching the game that Feb 1980 on ABC with Al Michaels and Ken Dryden as the announcers when I was 11 and loved it when we won and beat the Russians and jumped in celebration in the living room watching that team celebrate in the corner of the rink and watching Jim Craig look for his dad in the stands.

I still have the Sports Illustrated issue released the Tuesday after that had the hockey team on the cover packed away somewhere in a cardboard box (the man toybox) in my attic along with my matchbox cars.

Even though history stated that the Soviets getting ran out of Afghanistan, Reagan's 'Mr. Gorbachev, tear this wall down..." speech, perestroika, and glastnost was what ended the cold war, the little kid inside of me wants to believe that this hockey game was the start of the end for I vividly remember the American pride seemed to have been re-awakened and America seemed to change overnight after that game (and gold metal ceremony) and started the u-turn to feeling like a proud nation all over again


I cried at that movie twice:

(1): When the USA / USSR game was over and we won

(2); When at the end of the movie when the scene went from the team standing on the podium after the Star Spangled Banner and rolled into the ending credits.

75% of the people stood up and started clapping and did not leave. Instead, they stayed to read the credits seeing what eventually happened to those men the past 20 years and the vast majority started chanting

USA USA USA USA USA.....

while continuing to clap until the end credits finished showing on the screen.

I still get goosebumps thinking about it

Somehow the poignancy, the music, everything just got all entwined in my heart and fellas, I was able to keep it together fairly well, but truth be known I was about to swoon! Could hardly even speak to my date. Isn't that sad?
