Well, first 15 minutes of Up, clearly.
after the house has landed and he's looking through the photo album always affects me more than the opening.
Field of Dreams
Maybe not crying but certainly always huge lump in my throat.
The Superman bit in The Iron Giant
i cry rather easily at films.
I don't cry in films or in life in general due to being a cold emotionless drone. I think Bridge to Terabithia's the closest I've ever come to crying at anything since becoming an adult.
Out of fucking NOWHERE it comes to destroy all you hold dear.
gets me every time.
i cried at white house down
I had to hold back sobbing...
And loads more, one that pops into my head where I was really balling so bad that my bf was like 'fuck are you ok' was the pursuit of happiness with Will Smith. Also the boy in the a triped pyjamas
Seriously though that movie is a massive smack right in the feels
The bit just before he goes into surgery and he reaches for his mum. Fuck.
Real tear-jerker, in that i tore the end of my willy jerking off to it and it made me cry
when he goes off the cliff in the wheelchair and the alien wakes up and is like "SSSSHHHHIIIIIIIEEEEEETTTTTT"
never cried for a film (except when I wasn't allowed into gremlins 2 because it was a 12 and had a proper tantrum)
wish I had a better answer but the worst was probably toy story 3. don't know whether it was the fact I was watching it with a crushing hangover in a baking hot tent or what, but the ending caught me totally unawares and momentarily ruined my life.
it was a bit like somebody forcibly closing the book on the remnants of my childhood. i was pretty glad of the 3D glasses basically. :')
Top 5 would be:
It's A Wonderful Life - The bit with young George in Mr Gower's shop gets me the most I think.
LOTR - Return of the King - "My friends, you bow to no one"
50/50 - See ^ thread
Toy Story 3
A.I. - The ending.
It's the bit where they all join hands in the furnace thing that gets me.
followed by the orchestral soar... Sublime tear-jerking material. See also: "Rosie Cotton dancing... If I ever would have married someone, it would have been her...". Heartbreaking.
The final scenes where Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn exchange looks and glances realizing that they'll never see each other again is quite moving.
but the closest are Grave of the Fireflies (the bit where you see their mum) or Short Circuit 2 (at the end where Johnny 5's bleeding battery acid as he races after Oscar with Bonnie Tyler blaring).
short circuit seems to have been almost forgotten, at least as classic as ET, time for a reboot
have probably never been so angry/upset by the goings-on in a film before
The bit at the end with his mother always gets to me.
and as soon as i realised the dog was gonna die (probably about half way in) my jaw was jiggling and I was on the verge - then when he croaked it i lost it.
on the up side me and the mrs went to a pool party afterwards and i did a throw up underwater, and there was a naked man
and strangely, Karate Kid. the bit just before he wins. wrecks me.
Eternal Sunshine and Lost in Translation when the time is right
don't think i'd ever cry watching it though
maybe not full blown tears but it certainly moves me TO A BIGGER HOUSE
...i had tears in my eyes a few times.
...the ex had sent me a text saying she wished she could 'do that eternal sunshine erasing this' so she wouldn't have to feel like this/know me any longer! :(
She sent me a text about a week after saying she wouldn't actually want to do that regardless of how difficult it all is.
Anyway the point being, it strikes lots of chords!
No one has said ET yet either? FFS
such an underrated movie
was the first and until now last time I shed a tear in a cinema. More than once during the film, but especially when his daughter is dying and her rose tattoo sheds a petal, and Dianne Wiest's closing monologue. Fuck knows what watching that would do to me now.
