I always have to switch the channel whenever I see an animal abuse commercial. I honestly can't think of anything else that has disturbed me more than one of those depressing ads. I wish I could adopt all of those neglected pets. :(

So, what about you guys? What makes you weep like a baby?

I need to watch Toy Story 3 and see what all this sadness is about. No you're not the only one I am sure.

#6 Posted by Nightriff (5093 posts) -

@NMC2008: Not that it is sad, it's just touchingly sweet how they closed out the trilogy....maybe. You never know with Disney.

Are you thinking of messed up erotic fiction kind? Because if so we should totally hang out and smoke weed.

You are not alone. Watching the end of Toy Story 3 kinda reminded me how my childhood was over too.

I don't cry, but the thing that horrifies and depresses me the most is men abusing other men. I watched a BBC special about the neo Nazis and racists within the Polish and Ukrainian football supporters, they beat up the black and asian supporters, and chant anti-jewish slogans. 
 
It especially turns my stomach when it's a soldier abusing his position to massacre, rape or abuse the weak civilian men and women without anyone seeing. I honestly loathe the US army after seeing all the shit that has been leaked or shared of what they do over there. Even though I consider American people pretty cool.

Absolutely not. Many times during the movie I had to try my hardest to hold back the water works; especially at the beginning of the movie when it shows the home movies of Andy and his toys over the years. It was like watching my childhood flash before my eyes. Such a fantastic film.

How is that bad? It means you have a soul... and yes, I did too.

Touch is kinda tugging at Heart Strings. But so are alot of Episodes of House M.D.

I also can NEVER watch the episode of Futurama where Fry's dog got solidified in rock. It's just too much to watch that poor dog wait forever for him. I want a dog like that.

Any well-developed characters put through relatable issues like death, remorse, loss, depression, abuse, etc. The key is that they have to be good, flawed characters for me to care enough. Winter's Bone, Pan's Labyrinth, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, The Bicycle Thief, Breaking Bad, The 400 Blows, Radio Flyer, and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey are just a few examples of these.

I saw Toy Story 3 in the theater, every godamn adult was crying and every kid was grinning. It's called the "Lasseter effect".

As for what tears me up, just about anything really.

@AhmadMetallic of course you don't cry :P

I love the Godfather, but I feel a little more distanced from the characters in a crime drama like that. It's more interesting to look at the characters because they're interested, not because they're relatable. Even though Breaking Bad is a crime drama of sorts, there are plenty of the elements of his life that are very relatable.

the thing that tugs at my heart the most is listening to WWII veterans tell their experiences on the front lines of the war. my grandparents' neighbor was apart of the storming of one of the beaches in france. he landed on omaha beach and was the only survivor in his entire company. it's a tearjerker just thinking about it.

#40 Posted by Nightriff (5093 posts) -

To add in some other things that tear me up:

  • The end of Journey, really tears of joy because that game is amazing and beautifully done.
  • Several times during the film Rudy, especially at the end when the stadium is chanting his name. I don't care if its fake.
  • I used to tear up at the end of Braveheart and during the accident scene from Crash when he has to save the girl, I don't anymore when I watch them.

Don't judge me but at least I'm being honest like some people in here

I love the character of Michael Corleone. I think his story is the most interesting. A World War II veteran who served his country, wants nothing to do with the "family business", and yet, when his father is shot, all of that changes. The transformation of the character from the beginning of the story as an innocent veteran to the end as a cold, ruthless mob boss is amazing. If I could ever write an epic novel, it would be influenced by the Godfather. Of course only Al Pacino could bring life into the character of Michael Corleone and make it seem believable.

Edit: I love Breaking Bad! Especially because the character, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is thrown into an extremely dangerous environment and situations against his will, like Michael Corleone.

Yeah, I watched Toy Story 3 with my parents literally a week before I left home for university, I had to hold it together at the end. The end of Mary and Max reduced me to tears though.

This. Not only am I a male with no children to speak of, but I don't even have a sister. Yet, every movie, show, and game with a father-daughter element (specifically with tragic results) always gets me. The most recent example being Asura's Wrath

I also can't deal with big, final goodbyes like in Toy Story 3 as already mentioned.

Completely agree about anything to do with hurting animals.

Peter Molyneux was talking about Fable 2 before it came out, and said something like “you’ll create an emotional connection with this dog” and then later “this game will make you cry.” I remember saying that I’d be pissed if that just meant they’d kill the dog at the end.

Turns out that’s exactly what happened, and I’m still kind of fucking upset at Molyneux for using such a cheap tactic to create emotion. Of course I’m going to cry at the dog dying. It’s a fucking dog dying. That doesn’t mean you made something emotionally engaging, that means you just fucking manipulated my emotions to make me sad. Errrg, obviously, I’m still upset about this after all these years.
