Has anyone ever nearly cried during a movie for some reason? I remember when I was 10 years old, I had seen Toy Story. Near the end of the movie (Before Buzz Lightyear's rocket was lit), I nearly cried because I thought Buzz and Woody would never return to Andy. But in the end, they did.

And I'm still having that problem today!

I remember when I was very young I used to watch Land Before Time and I used to cry my eyes out when the mother died. I was on the verge of crying at the end of Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan and there must be several others. I also cried at the end of Blackadder Goes Forth but that's a TV program.

Oh, hell, I'll admit it. I'm a full-grown blue-collar male and a Movie Bawler. When Nigel describes how a single note on a piano can make people weep uncontrollably, in This Is Spinal Tap, he is talking about me.

Worst Case: While watching Deep Impact, one side of my brain was saying "What a feculent piece of manipulative crap!!." The other side of my brain was saying, "Ahhhh! Everyone's passing off babies! Ahhhhh!" and blubbering to beat the band. Especially bad when Téa Leone and Max Schell got wiped out. ("Daddy!!!")

Oddest Case: Wept at the end of the Three Stooges TV-biopic--when Moe "got into character," and when the curtain went up at the end. F***ing music. It's the music that does it...

Most Recent: Spider-Man, when Uncle Ben bought it, and when Aunt May got the news.

First Time It Failed To Happen: when Shmi says goodbye to Anakin in The Phantom Menace. Some crap is just too blatantly manipulative, even for me. Besides, she just let her only child participate in a deadly race with snipers firing on contestants, so she was pretty low on the Pity Scale. Die.

I've never cried while watching a film, never even got close. I guess I'm too much of a cynical bastard.

I've never cried watching a film either, I came very close while watching "The Luck Of The Fryrish", but that's not a film.

I came close in Leela's Homeworld too.

[Edit] I think I came also close in Superman when Clark's adoptive dad has a heart attack and dies and perhaps several points in Forrest Gump where various people die. Another factor is feeling sad because you can relate to how that person is feeling, or it reminds you of people you've lost yourself. Many people in my family have died so some deaths in films and TV can really drive the feeling back home.  cry

I almost cried at Evita and myself and a friend bawled our eyes out at Moulin Rouge. In both cases it was because the protagonists had gone through so much hardship and then died before they could reap the benefits of things getting good.
One of my favourite movies ever is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and that didn't make me cry. I cared, but I didn't cry. It's weird.

The first time I saw Terminator II, I cried at the end. When he's lowering himself into the lava stuff to save the chick and he waves and he's being all honorous and stuff. Then the thumbs up at the end to let her know everything was alright. Aw.   cry
haha
pathetic I know! But that was YEARS ago.

Oh and something less pathetic is the first time I saw Dead Poets' Society. I thought that was a fantastic movie when I saw it and I was yelling at the screen "nooo! Don't do it!! Arghhhh" and I was crying.

hahah I'm a wuss  wink

The most mascara-stained shirts I've ever seen was the first time I saw Titanic when it first came out. I swear, there would not have been a dry-eyed female in the entire cinema. Maybe it's just canberra women though, I don't know. I was still pissed over the whole '40+ people in the first lifeboat when there was really 12' issue. But that's another story.

I remmeber seeing it at the movies. I don't think I cried. Same in LOTR. Cuz I was in public and holding it back. Did have a nasty lump in the throat though. My buddy Rachel was crying badly in LOTR - several times! And she screamed at that black horse thing popping up around the corner. I was laughing at her wussiness. Then afterwards she accused me of not taking the movie seriously enough. Pfft. I loved the movie! I just thought it was funny she was so emotional over it  tongue What a girl.

I don't cry either, but I do get choked up in some scenes.  It's almost always when somebody dies bravely. Boromir's death was one.  Leon's death in "The Professional".  And the end of "Gettysburg" when Gen. Lee tells Gen. Pickett "See to your division, General" and Pickett replies in a strained voice "General Lee...I have no division!" (Pickett had lost over 75% of his men, really for no good reason.)

Yeah I cry at any romantic comedy starring Nicholas Cage. Remember It Could Happen To You, when he gives that slutty waitress two million dollars? Aw, that was so sweet.

Four times: The end of Star Trek VI, when it suddenly dawned on me that maybe this WAS the end; Forrest Gump, after his wife dies; the last episode of Babylon 5; and Luck of the Fryrish.

Right, let me get this straight. Boromir, is that the Alec Trevelian guy? How was that sad? I guess I my ass was so numb by that stage that I wasn't really paying enough attention. When's it coming out on DVD?

Sean Bean(Boromir)is Alec Travelian and I was sad because the way he died was very dramatic and he was not a villain in Lord Of The Rings. And if you're asking about the Lord Of The Rings DVD it will be out August 6 in a two disc set. Then in november is coming out an extended version of the movie in a 4 disc set.

Sean Bean was also famous for his TV role as Sharp - a British maverick officer during the Napoleonic wars. It's sad in the last episode - the battle of Waterloo - where many of his men that have been with him for most of the entire time die.

I remember watching LOTR and nearly cried at Boromir's death but I remeber there were several flooding eyes when Gandalf fell into the abyss.

Me and my friend watched Deep Impact - she isnt the crying type but that was the first time she cried at. I cried at The Lion King. I cried at Titanic, but then laughed when my friend kept winding the tape back and it looked like Jack was coming back to life. The Sixth Sense makes me cry every time.

Gladiator is also very sad in the fact that's it always sad seeing crew or cast that died before the movie made the screen and Oliver Reed was a great actor.  cry

Schindler's List I cried for.  Makes me thankful every day for living in a home with heat and a computer.
Then there's Forrest Gump, Mr. Holland's Opus, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart, and... Paulie... shut up.

I got teary eyed watching Luck of The Fryish, Time Keeps on Slipping, Leelas HomeWorld, Parisites Lost, A Leela of Her Own
Also: Gladiator, Terminator II, Deep Impact, Pearl Harbor, City of Angels, Forrest Gump. Maybe other but I don't remember..

Films/Shows where I was crying outright:
A.I., No Need for Ryoko, Berserk.

Never heard of Berserk? good. beleive me you don't want to watch it. its got a great story with exellent dialog and great action and a wonderful romance. but it ends so tragicly its not even funny...

I've never cried in a movie, and my friends thinks I'm a cold horrible person for that  frown but I almost cried when I watched Pay It Forward when that kid died, and in LOTR on the end when Sam jumps out in the river to Frodo although he can't swim... but I cried once when I read a book  smile

I've never cried watching a film but come very very close to. I've never seen E.T before and loads of peoople are shocked when I say that  smile So I've borrowed it off my Auntie (to end the shocked responses  wink ) and I was told I would probably cry at that. So when I've watched it I'll post back to let you know if I cried or not  smile
