After watching Big Fish for the second time last night, and sobbing through the last few scenes of it  when the dad is dying in the hospital and the son talks about the death  and for roughly half an hour afterward. My brother was cracking up during a bit of it, but I couldn'st stop crying.

That was an absolutely awesome movie. I cry a lot during movies, so here's a list of movies that made me cry/why:

Toy Story:
I felt really sad when Woody and Buzz were left behind and finally had to work together. It might have had something to do with the fact that I was ten when I watched it.

October Sky:
The soundtrack on its own is moving, combined with the somewhat cliché finish to it, got me sniffling.

The Iron Giant:
Yeah, yeah. I cried during this movie that had Vin Diesel providing the voice of the robot in his best role, interestingly enough. However, the movie ruined the ending it had [spoiler]by having the robot survive. Totally ruined the bittersweet/sad feeling it SHOULD have left me with[spoiler].

Finding Nemo:
Man, I cry during a lot of animated films... mostly because of the father son relationship portrayed pretty nicely. I was sad because the characters were so sad, not because of the events in the movie. Good movie, though.

If I think of others, I'll add them later. Add your own.

Grave of the Fireflies: I was blubbering like a baby  after the baby girl died and they were showing her when she was alive running around the cave.  It's such a sad movie.

Big Fish: The ending MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

There have been other movies, but these are the two that stick out in my mind.
"Legolas grasped onto his bodkin arrow and stroked it steadily. It was but a few moments later that Legolas would let forth a mighty war cry and shoot millions of tiny arrows into Luthien's mouth. Being the expert archer that Legolas was, not a single one of his tiny arrows missed its target."

Big Fish Sobbed for the first time in months when I saw this movie for the first time. I've cried the other 3 or 4 times I've seen it, but not as much.

Moulin Rouge Also sobbed for about an hour after this movie. Love it, adore it.... it's made me cry.

The King and IThe ending... breaks my heart every time I see it, and I cried the first couple of times.
Jack Sparrow: She's safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word really... except for Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.

Quoted from Sandamnit:
Grave of the Fireflies: I was blubbering like a baby  after the baby girl died and they were showing her when she was alive running around the cave.  It's such a sad movie.


I also cried at the ending of Big Fish. I was half expecting it, but when it actually occured, it was just so poignant.

Also:
The Green Mile:  The final execution scene, I think partially because of the way John Coffey refuses the hood because he doesn't want to die in the dark. . Thinking about it gets me a little choked up even now. Also,  the scenes expaining about the murder of those two girls are really heartbreaking. 

The Last of the Mohicans: The music was emotional to begin with, but the part where  the girl throws herself off the cliff  really started the waterworks.

A.I.: That little android had such a hard life. *sniff*

There are certainly others, but these definitely jump out at me.

The ending of Titanic when the passengers that couldn't get off accept their deaths, and because of that music. When I saw it in the theater I held it back, but when I watched it again on video, I just couldn't.

Simon Birch, held back the tears when I saw it with my mom, watched it later that night by myself and let it all out.

Ikiru, which made me want to cry, and I would feel much more confident admitting that it made me cry then the above movies, but it didn't bring me to that level, a good, and very moving movie though.

There are few movies as a whole that have made me cry, though there have been a few scenes. I can't really think of many of them at the moment, but one that sticks out of my mind is a show I watched when I was a child.

The Dog Who Stopped the War
Now the movie was B-Grade material. Granted it was an 80's film, the whole possibility of  creating snow forts that looked like real castles, with tunnels and fortifications  is unlikely, though it was very cool for a kid at a young age - I wanted one badly. For those who have no clue what this film was about, a bunch of Canadien children decide to have a snowball war against eachother,  and it gets out of hand, in which it goes all out snowball and fist fights and it begins to be taken too seriously.  The part which turned this strangely weird 80's film into a heartbreaker was  the death of one of the kid's Saint Bernards, Cleo, who gets upset and attempts to save her owner who is trapped when the large snowfort comes crashing down. The dog was pathetically cute. If there was any dog that deserved a film award, it was this dog hands down. Of course, after the initial shock the children are like "OMG, the dog died" and then shortly after they're at it again. Then it shows past scenes of the dog all happy with her owner, and oh well, it was upsetting.  

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Another movie that I found somewhat sad was this one.  It begins with widow Mrs. Muir moving into an old house, where she meets a ghost. The ghost, a captain, begins to like the woman, and grows a friendship with her. He eventually helps her gain money by allowing her to publish his story, however, she meets another man and the ghost gets jealous (even though she really didn't like the man all that much). Eventually, the ghost leaves before she can explain, and she lives out the rest of her life (perhaps 40 years) alone, hoping the captain would return. The end in which she dies and the captain greets her on the other side as they walk off together was very well done. It made me sad for she waited forty years for the captain. Forty. Years.   All because an idiot conman tried to steal her money by attempting to seduce her.omg yah rite fag lol

Schindlers list. When he  starts naming all the things he shouldn't have bought or whatever  that makes me cry.

Lots of movies make me weepy eyed but only a few make me cry.
An Affair to Remember Honestly makes me blubbery like a child every time I watch it. Mostly when   there is the realization that they've both loved each other, but she couldn't see him because she was ashamed and he finally knew she didn't reject him  I just love that movie to death.

Legends of the Fall I know it's a huge chick flick and it's really cliche, but it's so dramatic in a good way. Romance, heartbreak, death in the family, etc etc. Pretty much halfway through the movie I feel it tugging on my heartstrings and by the end I'm covered in tears.

I hold back my tears during movies. My female friends think I don't cry because I'm insensitive.

The Green Mile brought me closer than any other movie I can remember.

I can't think of any that really make me cry, but there are a few that make me emotional.


Children of Dune:  The death of Muad'dib, and especially the final scene between Lato and Stilgar. The final line he gives in that scene "to remind you of Muad'dib. To remind you that all humans make mistakes, and that all leaders are only human." gets to me every time. The whole damned movie is amazing, but that scene makes it for me. 

Braveheart: The first time I saw the ending, it railed me speechless. Each time I watch, it still touches me.

Gladiator: Same thing as Braveheart. The ending is just done too perfectly not to be touched by it.

Quoted from Stormraider:

Braveheart: The first time I saw the ending, it railed me speechless. Each time I watch, it still touches me.

Same for me. It's fucking Mel Gibson and the movie is full of historical inaccuracies that bother me, but the ending is touching.

And yet, the scene that I think is more touching is when Wallace finds out Robert the Bruce has betrayed him. The expression in his face when he removes Bruce's helm, the despair, frustration and all that... Well, I find that most touching.

The Green Mile:  The execution scene.  I get sad only thinking about that. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

Cast Away:  When he loses Wilson at the raft in the end.  I think it might have something to do with some childhood trauma regarding the loss of stuffed animals.

Cast Away is the only movie that has made me cry, for that same reason. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

And strangely enough, the only other thing that has made me cry was The Pinky and the Brain Christmas Special, because of  when Brain was trying to take over the world again, using Santa Clause to some end (I forgot exactly how), and Pinky wanted to deliver his letter to Santa while they were in the North Pole. Brain kept ignoring him the whole episode and was mean, but finally he read the letter and all Pinky wanted was for his best friend Brain to get what he wanted for Christmas, and that was all.  I have no idea why that gets me and most other movies or tv shows don't.

Another movie that comes close: The Santa Clause
 Tim Allen's character's divorced wife and her new husband don't believe in Santa because of presents they never got. Her husband was 3 years old when he stopped believing because he never got the Oscar Meyer weenie whistle that he wanted. Tim Allen's son believes in Santa the whole time because of a trip to the north pole they had taken, when Tim Allen became the new Santa to replace the dead Santa.
Once he becomes Santa, he floats up in his sleigh and passes out the presents, and Neil (his wife's new husband) finally gets his weenie whistle

Saved!: I don't know what it is about this movie, but I cried throughout it for a lot of people.
The Last Samurai: Something about when  Katsumoto's son dies  and that very last battle scene gets me extremely depressed. I know that it was honorable, etc. etc., but it still gets me down. Especially when  the entire army bows to Tom Cruise, and when he brings Katsumoto's sword to the emperor during the treaty signing.

I had to force myself not to cry when I first saw Titanic. Of course, that was when I was 13, and I don't cry now that I'm 21.

Metropolis (the anime). The ending  were the trash
unit fifi brings Kinichi Timas 'heart' after the
fall of the Zygarot. It cut me deep. 


I, Robot.  The acting was horrible IMO,
but Sonnys' (the main robot character) manurism
were so, real. It made me have immense feelings
for him, and thinking about him dying really
upset me. Even though, I could've cared less for
Will Smith.
