Movies that make grown men cry
Ever sat in the cinema and had a strange feeling come over you where your eyes well up and your throat develops the inability to swallow comfortably? (Not from the watered-down, extortionately-priced drinks and stale popcorn, but from the combination of some emotional scene set to a moving soundtrack)
Although most of you won't admit it - it has happened to me. Yep, I don't know what causes this phenomenon, but it occurred during the ending of The Green Mile and the end of The Perfect Storm.
What jerked your tears?
A few times at the cinema I have welled up and hurried out quite quickly at the end so as not to be seen, a few of the films that had that effect on me were..
The Colour Purple
I watched The Road at home on blu-ray and blubbed like a baby.
Didn't see it at the cinema, but the scene where Martin Brundle kills his mutant dog in The Fly 2. The most heartbreaking scene ever committed to screen.:(
One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest.
Schindler's List had a lump in my throat.
Rocky Balboa did make me cry when i saw it on DVD, but I think it was more that I had grown up with the Rocky films, and Rocky had achieved something with his life, even in his later years, and I felt that my life was going down the toilet, and I'd achieved nothing. Man, I was only like 27-8 at the time!
I think Judgement at Nuremburg upset me, not sure if it was to tears though.
Silent Running - The last shot of the little robot watering the plants :o
Last time I cried in the cinema was Toy Story 3.
But I cry a lot in films - Benjamin Button got me all tearey-eyed.
And Casper. I cry at Casper, when Bill Pullman says goodbye to his dead wife. I cry every single time.
Whoo - so macho...
The films that have made me cry a lot (although there are probably more) are:
Million Dollar Baby
Into The Wild
The Cove (documentary)
Toy story 2 & 3
It's A Wonderful Life
Gone With The Wind
Thought of some more:
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
La Vie En Rose
Normally it takes a certain sequence of events to press my waterworks, having seen my father cripppled beyond repair by his third consecutive stroke in as many months, I foolishly decided to watch 'Big Fish'.
When he carries Albert Finney to the lake, I just broke down.:o
