Just saw Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, great little weird movie, almost made me cry
'whiny privileged white guy is made to feel better about himself by a dying MPDG' film, innit?
Feel like there was a decent film in there somewhere if someone had reigned it in a bit and addressed the fundamental imbalance in perspectives.
I'm glad you felt better after watching it, Marckee :)
because I am a robot with no emotions.
I did nearly cry when they destroyed the big computer at the end of Superman III.
the mum arrives back at the house.
Gets me every time.
when hooch gets injured and is being operated at the vets and looks like he's going to die but pulls through and retires on the farm for ex-service dogs and tarka the otter is there
Then feel down...you know the scene. Gets me every time
i cried at one bit of Snakes on a Plane
Yeah, makes me wince a bit too.
I pretty much dissolved during The Tale Of Princess Kaguya
I cried at the end of The Ice Storm, when Kevin Kline turns around to look at his dearest son, Toby Maguire, and breaks down himself. so gracefully done, the way the film pivots on the discovery of the night's events.
Never, dead inside
If you bottled all the tears I've cried at films, you could have yourself a small, salty drink
particularly Hachi: A Dog's Tale. Went to the shrine to the original Hachi in Tokyo last month & that set me off again.
Only thing that gets to me in films is when naive robots are mistreated
I cry whenever Theo gets bullied.
even blubbed when the car hit the cat in Inside Llewyn Davis. it takes about 5 bars of weepy string music and i'm gone, generally
But honorable mentions must go to -
* Iron Giant "I'm Superman..." bit
* When I was a kid, Braveheart, when he karks it.
* Eternal Sunshine, the end, when the house is collapsing
* Synecdoche New York, again Kaufman gold. That ending, also when he goes to see his daughter.
is the most recent one
Urgh. Such an awful, smug, vacuous and terribly-acted film.
natalie p is great in it.
it's pretty pessimistic and the characters are v selfish but i can't think of another film that tackles relationships from that angle that well
Crying is for weaklings
the end of field of dreams and big fish always get me. unresolved father son issues maybe!
Up got me, actually quite a few films have got me.
Amongst other things.
Think I started bealing as soon as the title started.
I'm welling up thinking about it
The bit where they stand on the desks at the end of Dead Poets Society made be a little less stoic. As did Up - but more then end of it than the beginning. Up is such a brilliant film.
i think i am dead inside
For some reason there seems to be a lot of dust in the cinema and it always seems to get in my eye.
(Last one was Everest, where Jason Clarke's having his last phone call with Keira Knightley)
I really didn't engage emotionally with that film
although I think at some point I stopped thinking about it as a film and more about the actual people in the 90s, at which point it all became a bit more real.
Tbh, cinematography aside, it's actually a fairly average film - too many loose ends and unknown details, I do find it kind of moving thinking about the fact that the American guy and Japanese lady died shortly after achieving what they set out to do.
and there;s a bit where Ewen McGregor rings his dad, that set me right off
though that was partly circumstantial, and Pixar films can basically have my tears whenever they want. Toy Story 3, Up, Wall-E, even the shit pre-film film with the fucking volcanoes had me welling up a bit.
and like you, Pixar stuff usually makes me wail like a toddler.
Thought it was mainly because the actual narrative wasn't really that special. Y'know, girl moves house and then runs away a bit suddenly... made sense for the film but wasn't quite the mastery of double mode of address (for kids - perfect; for adults - perhaps not so much) which is where Pixar's genius always lies. But when she came home and gave her parents a hug... yeah that got me. That got me.
I am fortunate that nothing terribly sad has happened during that time, apart from when the dog died but I was told by phone while drunk and hosting a poker night so held it together.
so held it together again.
he would be 26 now!
My dog is 12 and a half now and you've given me hope that I shouldn't be preparing myself just yet
I just don't have water coming out of my eyes and chest convulsions like you freaks!
If you don't have arms full of goosebumps at that bit, you're probably dead.
Song of the Sea
Commando (Director's Cut)
I feel sorry for you tearless pricks.
That won an oscar, I got a bit sniffly at the end. bless him
Man, I got some burning rubber smoke in my eye at the end when they busted out that tribute to their all time dog Brian.
