    The older I get, the more sappy I get, but still very few movies have made me cry.

    But here are the ones that do....which ones for you?

    #1---a huge #1 goes to Tim Burton's BIG FISH. One of the most endearing, sweet, funny and sad movies ever. I don't just cry, I weep. The man who is dying reminds me of a couple friends who have died.


    #2-Finding Neverland
    #3-House of the Spirits

    For me, these ones make me just BAWL:

    - E.T.
    - The Colour Purple
    - Scrooge (with Alistair Sim)

    I also remember as a kid crying my eyes out at the end of "Born Free" when they released Elsa back into the wild. I didn't want her to go.

    I have cried every time I've watched "Meet the Robinson's"

    And hates the Notebook. The whole movie was designed to make you cry.

    August Rush
    A Girl Like Me
    Pay It Forward
    Forrest Gump

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Vanilla Sky
    A.I.
    Love Actually
    The Pursuit of Happyness
    World Trade Center

    Million Dollar Baby
    A Walk To Remember
    icon_redface.gif
    Little Miss Sunshine (when the son finds out he's color blind and can't be a pilot - I was still fully closeted and partly in denial at this time and I had to pause the movie, run up to my room and cry. LOL)
    I am Sam
    The Family Stone
    Kramer Vs. Kramer


    That's all I can think of atm. icon_razz.gif

    Big Fish was good, but it didn't make me cry. (Partly because in the father's recounting of his exploits in China, a Red Guard ventriloquist was shown... and he was speaking in filipino about how tired he was and how long they've been shooting or something. To a foreigner it would sound chinese, but to me, who could actually understand it, it was hilarious)

    Most sports movies make me tear up at the inspiring moments too. LOL.

    Yes, the Color Purple did it for me too. Saw it in high school.

    Wild Reeds by Andre Techine - I was still in the closet.

    Sometimes in April http://www.hbo.com/films/sometimesinapril/

    When I saw E.T. at age 6, I bawled when he was being shucked out those long tubes, half dead. LOL. icon_smile.gif

    Embarrassed about this one, but... Titanic. icon_redface.gif

    "The Hours". There is a scene in that movie that just about destroyed me emotionally.icon_cry.gif Also the "The Return of The King" at the end can get me a bit misty eyed.

    Besides that I have a tendency to have a heart of granite at movies. I get emotional but you would never know it. I have difficulty crying at the best of times.

    "Finding Neverland" was that the one with Johnny Depp playing the guy who wrote "Peter Pan"? Yes that was a bit of a tear jerker at the end I must admit.

    its one of my favorite movies- its so gorgeous and there's a lot of mysticism and symbolism bound up in it- every time i watch it i see or realize something new. but yeah, when he's with his dying wife in the bath tub i get teary eyed, and at the funeral.

    u know, in all the space scenes, they used digitally processed footage of chemical reactions in petry dishes for all of the cosmic phenomina? macro/microcosm :p its all the same thing at different scales..

    Ok, I don't cry from movies, at most my eyes get a little watery, but no actual tears. I'm not cold hearted or anything like that, but if anything in a movie starts to get to me, I know it's just a movie, not real.

    The Colour Purple......The first time I saw it, when it first came out I wept so hard that I couldn't get out of my seat and they had to delay the next showing. I guess it just hit me hard at that time of my life.

    Then, just about anything where someone really gets what they want. You know success or underdog stories. Like, I cry every time someone wins in the Olympics.....I try not to watch it so much....lol

    Enchanted? Really? Where's the sad part? icon_smile.gif

    One that comes to mind for me (there are a lot actually) is The Notebook. Man that was a killer for me.
