Default What movie has brought you to genuine sobs?

I don't get super emotional in movies as a rule, but when I saw the ending of "Empire of the Sun," I bawled like a baby. I mean I was seriously distraught! It was really a good thing that I was watching it at home on DVD, because if I'd been in a theater, I'd have embarrassed myself to death. I think maybe it's kind of a mom thing.

Gorilla's In the Mist

A classic old film that is famous for being a tear jerker is "Immitation of Life". Haven't seen it since I was a kid, but it always made my mom and her friends cry.

You know, I never saw that, but I bet I'd love it. Knowing how much I love animals, though, I bet I'd go through a whole box of Kleenex.

When I used to travel a lot for work I had a rule. Never watch a movie in an airplane if Meryl Streep is in it. Read a book, instead. Too many people. Too well lit. Don't want them to see me sobbing like a fool.

In no special order:

Gallipoli
Testament
Bambi
Out of Africa
Anything related to Sept. 11
Anything related to the holocaust
Anything with animals and little kids where one of them dies

I don't cry in movies but there was a few that I wanted to. There was a TV movie called "Flight 93" which I found more emotional than the more popular United 93 movie, I did want to cry in that one.

Also "Cars". Despite being a Pixar/Disney film it is very deep and sends some good messages. IT was sad to see that Radiator Springs was bypassed just to save 10 minutes of driving like they said in the movie. Actually I think they are speaking on a deeper level about how our society is all about speed, making money, etc and how much we have lost as a country since the good ol' days. It makes me nostalgic for a time before I was born, like some country music songs make me feel that way too. Cars really does make us question who we are as a nation these days and our mentality. I do wish that time could stop, the more our world "changes" the worse it gets.

The part in Steel Magnolias when
Spoiler
Shelby dies.


In Dances With Wolves when Wind in His Hair is on top of the hill and says "Dances With Wolves. I am Wind In His Hair. Do you see that I am your friend? Can you see that you will always be my friend?"

The Color Purple at the end when Celie sees Adam and Olivia and Adam says "mamaaa mamaaa." I don't know why but that gets me all the time.

I'm such a chick flick kinda girl.

Dances with Wolves is my all-time favorite movie. I thought that scene was touching, but I didn't even come close to bawling in it.

"My Sister's Keeper" - awful scenario on so many levels
