Have you guys ever cried during a movie? If so, which one? Just thought it was an interesting question to ask.
Recently it was with Life of Pi. When the tiger just vanished without looking back, it kind of reminded me of some past friendships that are no more. No goodbye or anything - just gone. I could not hold back. Was not outright crying but just teary eyed.
Skyfall's ending but those were the tears of great joy that come with a :D face that's getting its mind blown.
(Most recent film anyway yeah. Those are the tears I get, those of pleasure and joy. Should see me when I listen to sweet new vocaloid dubstep)
I can't remember the last time that I cried in a movie. I remember watching The Lair of the White Wormwhen I was a little kid and crying because I accidentally ripped off part of one of my toenails.
I almost teared recently when watching Les Miserables. I didn't, but almost.
Uhh, I've cried at a lot of movies. Most recently I really choked up at the end of Nekomonogatari Black (I know it's not a movie, but it was a 1 hour and 40 minute OVA aired in one chunk so it might as well have been!).
@JacDG: My face was as dry as a prairie dog doing that entire film! (whatever the hell that means).
The one and only time I've shed a tear is when I had some time to kill, so sat down with my kids and turned on the telly and Fox and the Hound was on. And the end my daughter was crying inconsolably saying "They only wanted to be friends". That touched me way more than the movie ever could.
Not really with movies. I've gotten all misty while watching a movie (Wall-E fading and Eve's panic, for example), but I can't recall the last time I cried during a movie. The same is true for video games. Now, what will make me sob occasionally is anime. The difference is the amount of time invested. A series requires a steady investment of time and, if done well, it can create a stronger bond between myself and the character. That in turn will lead to a stronger emotional response from me during story moments. There isn't enough time in your average movie for me to build that kind of relationship with the film characters. On the other hand, while there is enough time while playing a game, the problem is most of that time involves me doing something such as "playing the game." Because I am never entirely focused on the story, there is a disconnect between myself and what the developers are trying to evoke. Part of me is always thinking about the next move or basic survival. While games can create a strong level of immersion, the game part itself prohibits me from committing to the illusion fully.
No can't say I remember doing so to a movie now the end of a few anime series left me pretty damn sad. The end of the Witchblade anime had me surprisingly a pretty big mess. But that was mostly due to Rihoko losing her mom. Playing the sad child card gets me every damn time.

Nah. Movies have laughable writing compared to books. I've cried while reading books, definitely, but movies? It's just harmless popcorn fun. There's no real depth to the medium or the art created within it. People should just stop trying, honestly.
