I think that's what surprised me.  I was well prepared for what was in the film.. otherwise it would have even been worse.  What surprised me was that it's actually fairly well done, and you feel so badly for the Protaganist at the end.

I'm not going to defend the movie, or my watching of it.  I'll never watch it again, and I don't suggest anyone watch it.

Back on topic though.. I really find that since my divorce I have a really hard time with movies where the parents are getting divorced.  I guess I feel some lingering guilt around my kids.. even though I know they are doing totally fine.  Funny how life experiences can change how you view things.

So back on topic.. What did you think of 'Kramer Vs. Kramer', Producto?

Actually, I've never seen it.

OK I'm lame, but I saw Babe on TV this weekend and that damn movie makes me cry at the end. "That'll do pig. That'll do." Ugh.

The LOTR trilogy - Several moments that always get to me: the fall of Gandalf, Theodred's funeral, last march of the ents, the charge of the Rohirrim at the Gladden Fields (so awesome and inspirational of a scene!), Theoden's death, and the end of all things.

Braveheart - it really does have a gut-wrenching finale.
Spoiler for Hiden:
tee hee

Saving Private Ryan and Titanic: each of these has a specific moment in the film that gets to me. In SPR, it's the landing on Normandy Beach, because shit really went down like that. In Titanic, it's when the ship is getting to the late stage of sinking and there's a montage of different people accepting their fate and/or dying. Because, again, shit really went down like that. Reflecting on the horror that people have faced in various tragedies really gets to me at my core. Which brings me to...

Hotel Rwanda - holy fuck is that one horrifically difficult movie to watch.

Twilight - because it makes me weep for our species. Tongue

If I were to hypothetically cry during a movie, it would have been the movie Love Actually. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
At the end of the movie, they show footage of real people greeting each other at the airport.  I've never felt happier coming back to my loved ones and family after a deployment

I get teary-eyed a lot, but generally I have to be in the right mood.   The one movie that seems to defy the mood thing for me is Steel Magnolias.  The scene where Sally Field finally breaks down and cries just gets me every time.

I thought it as a pretty good film and definitely recommend it for anyone that enjoys disturbing horror movies.

'Saving Private Ryan'. The ending made me cry. Just the realization of the deep tragedy of war. It just got me.

That, and the Sam Gamgee's speech at the end of 'The Two Towers', when he passionately reminds Frodo that there's a lot of good in the world. That speech and the editing got to me. So epic.
These and Armageddon when Bruce Willis does his thing.

Damn dusty rooms getting it in my eyes...  paranoid

as Ive aged Ive noticed I can get emotional fairly easily.  Hell, I watered up a bit when Chuck finally proposed to Sarah and thats a comedy.   I also have a soft spot for dogs so when bad things happen to dogs I either get angry or teary

Saving Private Ryan: the beginning and end, as others have noted.

LOTR Trilogy: particularly the latter two films.  Some of Theoden's speeches are epic, the scene where everyone bows to the Hobbits, etc.

Iron Giant ...."Superman" gets me every...single...time.

This. Without FAIL. Also, the intro to Up is proving to be just as provoking on repeated views.

I've come to the conclusion that Brad Bird himself is a master at the male tear jerker.  The Incredibles has a few moments of near teary eyed emergencies as well.  Needless to say, I was surprised to find out he was writing and directing the latest Mission Impossible foray.   eek

Saving Private Ryan - ending when he talks with his wife

+1 to this

Quote from: TiLT on February 15, 2011, 07:24:08 PM

The ending to Braveheart always tore me up, though it's been a few years since I saw it last.
my first thought when i saw the thread, actually.


the ending to Glory was especially effective.

other than the bits of those pixar movies, most of my tear jerkers are due to heroic death.  hmmm. 

also, i have not seen iron giant.  odd that it is not on the shelf for the kids to watch.

A big +1 to both of these.  The "train to nowhere" scene in Spirited Away always really gets to me, as does the end of Royal Tenenbaums ("It's been a tough year dad").

They should have rolled credits right there.

The Green Mile.  I was really unprepared for the emotion that would bring out at the end.
SPR at the end also.
