Movies That Make You Cry

#1 Post by TyranX » Sat Aug 07, 2010 1:16 am

What are the movies that make you guys tear up, or even cry?

For animation I'd have to honestly say half of the Pokemon movies. >_< Specifically the ones that i can remember, is the 1st movie, and the one with Jirachi. Especially Jirachi ^^,

As for other movies, Black Hawk Down. That movie will even make Chuck Norris shed some tears. And believe it or not I even teared up a bit during is Zombieland.
Only during the end though
When the "somebody is going to die/last stand" music is playing and Tallahasee goes Rambo while locking himself in the small shop booth surrounded by zombies.

Black Hawk Down is a great movie and I really like it. I've watched it perhaps more than 3 times... but I never find any tear-bending scene in it?

Really? There werent any "full out crying" scenes. But there were a few teary parts, Unfortunately I don't remember all of their names from the movie, but some of the scenes are like 1)
When a small squadron were stuck in a building and they were trying to fix up the guy who got shot in the leg. and a bit later when he was telling them to tell his parents that he had fought hard, then dies a few seconds later. Then you see the medic trying to desperately revive him even though its too late.
I think there might have been one more scene, but this is the one that stood out the most to me.

Anything Ed Zwick makes. "Glory" was the first one that made me cry like a baby. :( Also, for "The Last Samurai." I know it's a stupid Hollywood movie with Tom Cruise, but Zwick gets the subtleness and beauty of Japanese culture, and translates it for American audiences. Makes me crrrry.

Then, of course, any dog movie. Because the dog always dies. Bah. Cheap shot. *isn't pouting right now*

I've actually never cried at a movie. Whenever the director really manages to get an emotional reaction from me, I applaud him for being such a good story writer or get irritated and frustrated in a good way that he's managed to control my emotions so well.

However, one time I saw a dog movie was made by a Korean director that was U)(ERJIODFNO#&($RU*E gawd gut wrenching. I already know that Korean directors make the saddest possible movies in existence. Combining that with a dog movie might have caused half the world to commit suicide if more people saw it.

Ah yeah, that part... perhaps the other one is ...
right before the ending credit, when the protagonist reads a letter in a background, and the scene depicts him at a hospital bay, looking at lots of body bag before all those bags transported using airplane?
Anyway, perhaps because I've watched too many military and tear-bending movies, I don't easily cries now, Perhaps that's why the scene you told me didn't move me at all... although it's pretty touching.

Perhaps you should watch the tale about the dog of Shibuya, Hachiko. ^^

Meet Joe Black and Up are the first to pop out in my head right now. Also, any dog movie.

Recently, near the end of Toy Story 3 and near the beginnning of Up gave me a bit of a lump in my throat...

I love you :lol:.

Every single Miyazaki film
Chihiro leaves and doesn't even remember Haku T_T. I wish there would be a sequel...
Hmm... The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Bittersweet endings always make me cry. I can cry at pretty much any movie and the occasional sports montage so narrowing it down is tough :P.

Most new movies make me cry with their utter disregard of proper storywriting and wasting millions of dollars on special effect just to get the lowest denominator happy and bla bla bla ; (

If you mean the other sort of crying then most good anime (too much to count) makes me cry, I guess Saikano is one on the top of this list (some people seem not to like it though)
