    So yesterday I watched the movie "Memoirs of a Geisha". What's weird is that I saw that movie a few years ago when it first came out, and I liked it, but it didnt have such an impact on me back then. I think the reason the movie moved me so much this time is that I've fallen in love since a few years ago when I first saw it. In the movie she spends her whole life trying to get the attention of the man she loves deeply. In the end they both find out that both of them have been pining for the other one all those years, and they finally are together.

    So I said that to say that I had the most intense urge to hold my guy and hug and kiss and all that stuff after that movie. I sadly didnt get to see him yesterday or today, and still am wanting to hold him.icon_sad.gif

    So are there any movies that you guys have seen that made a very intense impact on you? Kind of like how "Memoirs" did on me?

    I was amazed at Feast of Love. It helped me remember that pure kind of love that transcends all that other bullshit. You know that kind when all the flirting and sex aside, you just care so deeply for another? Feast of Love did a great job of reminding me of that feeling. I recommend the movie, but know that it is very subtle and not so action packed. It is more....relaxed. Of course, it takes place in Oregon....

    Aaaahhh Memoirs Of A Geisha... the most amazing book ever written in my opinion. I adore the movie as well. Both still affect me to this day!

    "Love in the Afternoon" with Gary Cooper and Audrey Hepburn is the most romantic movie I've ever seen. Also, saw "Once Were Warriors" four times in the theaters, it's about a mother fighting to save her kids from their abusive father and the urban ghetto where they live in New Zealand, and it's awesome.

    Not a movie but just about any episode from the first season of "Friday Night Lights" is the only movie/TV show that actually makes me cry - so heartfelt, desperate and driven by the characters' sense of love and shame. I remember the first few seasons of "Buffy" really moving me as well.

    Granted, this is more of a solitary situation and less about love, but "Good Will Hunting" really had an impact for me.

    Um...ok..."Snoopy Come Home" made me cry more than any other movie, ever. Ha! I was eight, but still.

    Can't leave out "Beautiful Thing" either.

    The Notebook had the most profound impact on me. Shortly before it came out my dad passed away (bad heart and lungs) and 47 days after him my mom died (early onset alzheimer's) so the movie was spot on and catharctic for the grief I was feeling at the time.

    I bought the DVD and watch it about every 6 months. I can't get through the fist 20 minutes without losing it.icon_cry.gif

    The action star thread reminded me of the Lord of the Rings trilogy which I just watched for the first time in the last month or so. As ridiculous as it might sound, these movies had a profound impact on me because I was so moved by the characters' faith in a higher good and humble duty. I even talked about those movies in therapy!

    There've been a lot of movies that impacted me a lot, but two really stand out...

    Pay It Forward... it was the first movie I cried at in the theater.

    Love, Actually... didn't see it til it came out on DVD, and it makes me cry (happy tears) every time.

    Funny, I just recently had to buy the DVD of A Christmas Carol, having thrown out our VCR and thus rendering my VHS copy obsolete (d'oh!). I watch this movie every single year on Christmas Eve to remind myself the importance of the Christmas spirit.

    Other than that, Schindler's List wrecked me pretty badly.

    Latter Days always makes me wish that I had someone.
    I felt like Aaron when I was closeted, and even now I still feel like him. I swear, that movie makes me cry every single time as if it was the first time I saw it. I am even crying till about 5 minutes after the movie.
    Something else about it is the kiss out in the snow is one of the most romantic parts in the movie. I love kissing in the rain and have always wanted to kiss in the snow. It is snowing where I am . . . icon_cry.gif

    Loved "Life as a House." My partner and I were flying home from Europe and it was one of the options. I watched it early in the flight, sobbed sobbed sobbed. He watched it later in the flight, and I looked over at him at one point to find him sobbing too.

    Others: "A River Runs Through It" and on a lighter note "Postcards From the Edge"

    "The Green Mile" makes me cry every time. And although it's as gay as the day is long, so does "Steel Magnolias."

    My two favorite films, The Deer Hunter and The Best Years of Our Lives, which are the same film made about two different wars and produced about 30 years apart.

    Thecure, A River Runs Through It and Postcards from the Edge are among my other faves as they remind me of my relationship with my brother and mother, respectively.

    I swear, don't even think of talking to me when Angel dies and when Collins sings I'll Cover You (reprise).icon_cry.gif
    But, the alternate ending makes me cry so much more than the entire movie does all together. I just like how they are all reunited in the end and and everything is right.
