Movies That Made Me Cry

There's probably more, but these are the ones I can remember from the top of my head, or have watched after I started the list

It's always the music, or someone in the movie crying, that gets me..

NB! Some of the spoilers really spoil the whole movie, so don't look if you don't want it spoiled :)

I have never cried so much during a movie (or in general) as I did during this! I started crying when he was lying in his closet (?) and listening to the message from his father on 9/11, we saw the marks on his ribs, and while he lay under his bed. Five minutes after I'd finally stopped, when he started fighting with his mom about burying an empty coffin, and when the mother talked on the phone with his father during 9/11 cried again. And then, when he showed his grandfather the messages, and talked about the last message with Mr. Black, and finally broke down I also cried. Basically, I cried throughout the entire movie..
I was sad generally throughout the whole movie, and once in a while I'd start crying (After Extremely Loud.. this is the most I've cried from a movie) Especially when she died I saw it at the cinema, and during the credits, which were completely silent, most people stayed seated (which is really rare) and I could hear several people sniffing..
It left a lump in my throat for half an hour after the movie was over.
When the mother starts crying
In the end, when the last song starts playing
When Fred is dead, and his family is crying around him
I don't really remember exactly when, but I know it made me cry
During the Two Worlds song
When the kid is singing "Let It Be"
During the song, Kindle My Heart
In the end, when the mother realizes that she killed her son
Every time Jamal and Latika is reunited. Especially in the end
When Dexter takes his daughter to the hill where he went with Emma after the first time he met her
I was already teary eyed both times the father said "Don't Cry"
Only a little bit teary eyed, once in a while


In the scenes without any talking, with just music. Especially at a couple minutes into this scene, and also every time he looks at a picture remembering Ellie. And also at the end, when he sees the last pictures in Ellie's adventure book
This movie is about the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean, and knowing that it was a true story, and how many people had similar stories was pretty horrible.

It's really sad and horrible when you see things like this on the news, but seeing more details (even if they are fake/recreated) and getting to know the people makes it even more heart-wrecking.

The part that made me tear up though, was not the saddest scenes, but the happiest ones
The part with the grandfather was what got me
I had already read the book a few years earlier, so I knew what I was getting myself into when watching it.

The parts that brought tears to my eyes where when they were reunited after escaping, as well as when he said "I love you, grandma"

It was a kind of happy and sad at the same time.

Surprised you didn't say about Snape's memories, Harry seeing his parents, Sirius and Remus via Resurrection Stone and the ending of the film. Great list, though.

Nothing wrong at all with shedding tears during a fine movie. It just means that it touched your heart. # 7 and 10 for me, as well, dear. :)

Oh yes, for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas I also cried.

If you haven't seen it yet, the 1979 version of 'The Champ' is a very good weepy movie: http://www.listal.com/movie/the-champ
