My Eyes get a few tears during movies. I wouldn't say it's full on crying though. I teared up during Up twice. At the start and when He found the book of memories.
I cried during Big Fish in the theater, the scene where he's carrying his dad to the water. That movie came out not too long after my own father had died, and it really got me. Another good one is the end of Philadelphia when they are showing the home movies of Tom Hanks as a kid, with Neil Young in the background. Powerful stuff, if that doesn't make you cry you're a robot, or have a cold, black emptiness where your heart should be.
Those are only two examples, I've cried during many movies. :)
No. I can separate fiction from reality.
It's not a matter of being able to separate fiction from reality. A lot of people have been blessed with that gift... If you can't empathize or sympathize with anything then what's the point of watching movies? I find it hard to believe when people say then never cry, or at the very least don't get misty eyes. Usually sounds like some machismo bull to me.
I agree. I'd also say you aren't actually experiencing art if you aren't experiencing emotion.
Cried at the end of Norbit wasted 2 hours of my life watching that piece of shit.
I slit my wrists at the end of Norbit.
WAIT IT WAS THAT GOOD? Wonder what you did when you watched Pluto Nash?
When my mother found me after Pluto Nash I was gouging my eyes out with the eraser end of a pencil. My vision was partially restored, that is until my friends took me to see Meet Dave as a joke...
Schindler's list.... Man that scene towards the end.
There was a time when I never cried at any film but once I reached adulthood I started tearing up at everything like I had finally reached emotional maturity and learned some fucking empathy. I prefer it that way. Oh Dobby, you died a free elf! :(
Same. Started watching movies alone and started realising that getting emotionally invested is kind of the point.
As a child, I actually cried at the movie Radio mostly because of all the shit Cuba Gooding Jr. goes through and as a child I didn't really comprehend mental illness. I don't know, it was a multitude of things that I cant figure out now because when I watched it a couple months ago and it was just so goofy, it's pretty funny that I cried so easily at that movie.
As an adult however, many movies get me choked up but the only film that caused me to shed a tear was Life is Beautiful, such a great film. No wonder Roberto Benigni became a bit of an icon after such a great film, sadly the pinocchio movie that he made immediately after kind of pissed that all away though.
Oddly enough, the Walking Dead got me to full on sob at it's ending. Despite the countless films I've seen with masterful endings(Seven Samurai, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Shawshank Redemption) that little bit of interactivity in the Walking Dead is what got me to actually experience the most amount of emotion towards any fictional ending.
Magnolia, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, The Tree Of Life.... The list goes on and on. But more than any other movie, Synecdoche, New York fucked me up really badly, in a way I didn't know a film could do.
Oh, God. That last scene in Magnolia gets me every time.
Came very close during Toy Story 3, but my little brother was sitting next to me stone faced so I decided to force myself to hold it together. Honestly the shedding tears thing is new to me, I used to be proud of the fact that I hadn't cried in years (and even then, it was because I held my grandfathers hand as he died.) These days though, I don't fight it, and there have been a few games lately that have really got to me. Came close in during the movie Flight, too, but when I'm at the theater, I'm usually with friends (who don't cry), so like I said, I hold it together to keep up this silly false image. I need better friends.
As a kid, The Lion King.
As a teenager and then an adult, hmm... I'm pretentiousness-o-phobic so I tend to see right through the bullshit of movies such as the one with the binocular-shaped-eyes robot. I do remember tearing up during Toy Story 3, and I can't seem to remember any other movies.
Oh, The Ring (1996). German movie.
I generally hate cheesy sad-stories so I just become bored and I don't think I ever watched more than 1 or 2 "sad" movies, "chick flicks"... etc, if i watching with someone else i start playing on my phone.
I only remember crying, maybe not spiting tears out of my eyeballs but clearly getting kinda teary eyed at only 2 scenes:
Michael death in godfather
The speech + battlecry at Pelennor fields
Okay, that is totally unfair. Some people will choke up rather than cry or come close to tears, or it may just even depress them. If they don't care at all, yes, that is bad, but alot of people show extreme sadness in other ways apart from crying.
Tons of movies, I mean I'm human and got emotions. I don't see why that would be a bad thing.
Anyone who doesn't would either have to be a psychopath stripped of all empathy, not seen many movies or 14 years old and too "badass" to admit it.
