As is common, the book was so, so much more. Yes, it can be sad, but it's really more of an "uplifting" sort of thing too. It's ye' ol' drama of life. Good stuff.

Yep, I'm there with you on that.

Not too much gets the old waterworks going for me, but...something about Christmas movies.

Not necessarily a "Christmas movie" but, of the season..."Love, Actually"...god, that movie just ripped my heart right out of my ribcage and squeezed it dry.

21 Jumpstreet episode Big Disease with a Little Name. It's about a kid with aids. I don't cry but it's very sad.

War movies always get me choked up, not sobbing, but teary eyed.

The Thin Red Line
Saving Private Ryan
The Great Escape
The Pianist
Gallipoli


Other movies that get me are:
Chasing Amy
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Stand By Me
Forrest Gump


AND FUCKING E.T.

I hate that fucking movie so much but goddammit if I don't shed a few tears when he leaves at the end. Weeping openly Weeping openly

Blow


I'm glad that someone else had a heavy heart over this one (I almost cried), although I think I'm still alone on A.I.(actual tears the first time I saw it, gets schmaltzier and more manipulative the more I see it though.)

Jackson's King Kong got me misty eyed.

Saving Private Ryan gets me everytime.

I've only seen Dead Ringers once, and I'm trying to build up the nerve to watch it again, but I shed a tear for those pathetic bastards as well.

I also may be the only person on the planet who actually felt heartbroken at the end of Carlito's Way.

When I was a kid I had a lump in my throat for Robocop walking through his abandoned house, balled at the end of Terminator 2, and had those hiccupy fits of tears for Artax sinking in the swamp during The Neverending Story.

Maybe someday I'll be mature enough to feel sorry for movie charecters who aren't Gangsters, Robots, or mythical beasts.

Doesn't anyone else get teary eyed at the end of The Wild Bunch?

I would, but by the end of THE WILD BUNCH my balls have grown so gigantic, and my chest so hairy, that all I can think about is wrestling Grizzly bears and punching Vikings.

The Life Aquatic gets me. It's the part near the end, where everyone is in the submarine.

I cry at almost everything... from misty eyed, to outright balling - although that's only happened on a rare few occasions.

Charlotte's Web gets me EVERY single time.

Armageddon - bawled the first time I saw it, now I just get misty.

The Perfect Storm - the first time I saw it was a bad time for me and I didn't just bawl, I BAWLED.

The Green Mile

King Kong

Donnie Darko

And not movies but:

The Buffy finale, and the Oz finale.

There are probably TONS more I can't think of right now.
