Yeah yeah, we're all men (cept the women) and we're all macho and shit.

But, films that made you cry, there's gotta be a couple, surely...

Mine, The Shawshank Redemption gets me almost every time (When Brooks hangs himself) but more recently, Gran Torino, I expected the movie to either be a pile of shit, or a Dirty Harry - Retirement movie. What I got I did not expect, and while I saw what was coming a mile away once the movie started, I still shed a Tear for Walt Kawalski.

Hows about you?

Actually, just about every Pixar movie. Can't think of any other.

@BigBoss1911:

Yeah I forgot about that, that was a pretty bleak movie now I think about it.

@raggedglory:

Shit yeah, forgot about that too. Chokes me up every time. Fantastically well done movie.

The list of movies that I cry too is far too long to list here. Feels good, bro.

...Green Mile.

#14 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

Grave of the Fireflies.
I was watching it on my computer as my younger brother was watching the tv and had to pause the movie and lock myself in the bathroom so I wouldn't embarassingly cry in front of him. It was the first time since I was a child that I ever bawled that hard. I was honestly curled up on the floor sobbing into my hands.

Field of Dreams, gets me everytime. Damn that Kevin Costner.

Lost in Translation made me really upset, but in a happy way.

God, I fucking adore Bill Murray.

@Gizmo:

I really need to get that film on DVD, it's so completely different to 99% of other movies out there. Truly unique imo.

It's a really refreshing film, there are many times when it could have just gone down the same old cliched road, but it completely steers clear.
Murray and Johansson really seem to bond as well.

The Land Before Time.

#20 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -
  • Click: I teared up a bit when he was on the road and it was raining and... stuff was happening?
  • Jack Frost: I teared up when whatever happened to the father. I don't remember, but it was sad.

That's all I recall at the moment.

Click was a suprisingly awesome movie, deserved critical reception, in my opinion.

What Dreams May Come.  When he goes to Hell and his wife doesn't recognize him...and he can't save her...that shit hurts, man.


Saving Private Ryan.  At the end, when Pvt. Ryan looks at his wife in the graveyard and says "tell me I'm a good man, tell me I've lived a good life"...that shit hurts, man.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day.  When Arnold lowers himself into the molten metal at the end...that shit hurts, man.

Those are the three that will guarantee tears.
#23 Posted by cinemandrew (711 posts) -
@Hairydutchman: Oh god, that's a good one. I need to go pick that up.
#24 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -
@Gizmo: Not really. It was incredibly predictable. The instant he laid down on that bed... I knew it was a dream.

Spoilers by the way. Haha!
#25 Posted by JackiJinx (3089 posts) -

Click and Babel. Not much else has made me cry.

#26 Posted by AgentofChaos (1565 posts) -

Field of Dreams for sure. That catch scene gets me everytime.

#27 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2403 posts) -

Lost in Translation, Life Aquatic, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind all came close.

#28 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

What Dreams May Come, definitely. That film featured some of the best work Robin Williams has ever done.

#29 Posted by jakob187 (21640 posts) -

What is it with all you people and Click?  I can't say that I teared up once during that movie.  Yeah, it was sad the way they played it out, but the whole time, I was already in the mindset that none of this was real.  I'm guessing everyone else just got incredibly duped.


Also, I almost forgot to mention another flick that made me cry:  The Last King of Scotland.  This one was for a solely different reason.  When I had seen the movie, I didn't know a thing about Idi Amin.  After I watched the movie, even knowing that it was a fictionalized work involving a real-life tyrannical dictator, I was shocked at the atrocities one man was willing to commit...including to his own wife...and then force his sons and the entire city to look at what he'd done to her.

I cried for an hour straight after that movie out of pure terror.  What an incredible movie...so incredible that I can't even watch it again.  That movie scarred the fuck out of me.

@jakob187: I live pretty close to the city, so I know a decent number of people that lost family on 9/11. It touched me more, probably because I kept thinking of Adam Sandler in his comedic roles and comparing him to that character. It was a humanizing thing.
#31 Posted by The_A_Drain (3910 posts) -
@jakob187:

I couldn't take that movie seriously, which is a shame because I love the two actors who carry the movie. But the character (minus the guns and henchmen) is exactly (not even kidding, it's like the same person) like my landlord. So it just pissed me off reminding me of him instead of letting me settle into watching the movie :\

Agreed, I cried while I watched Click and I didn't expect I would going into the movie.

Bicentennial Man.  It doesn't seem like many people ever saw that movie, but there's a few parts, especially the ending, that are really sad.  I didn't have tears running down my face, but it got me a little emotional.

#34 Posted by Baggykins (824 posts) -

First Pokemon movie ... was so sad...

#35 Posted by Keyser_Soze (1186 posts) -

Hana-Bi, I had a sole tear drop cling desperately to my lower eyelid as it gave up hope and let go. A solitary tear for a solitary movie.

Requiem for a dream I nearly broke down like really, partly because I can relate, on certain fronts anyways but still.

Legends of the fall, the scene in which a soldier loses his brother. He keeps telling him "your ok, your doing gooooood" as he dies in his arms.

I vaguely remember Bicentennial Man. Not enough to remember the ending though, since I was just a kid when it came out.

The only movie that's ever brought me to tears (and they were tears of happiness) was the end of "In the Name of the Father", the part where Daniel Day Lewis' character is freed from prison. I loved that scene, because it isn't just a victory for his character, the audience feels it too.

Also I never cried at the end of T2, but it was pretty damn sad.

Castaway was probably the first, but when I saw Princess Mononoke years later I definitely shed a tear or two.
