This is a list of the films that I have made me cry whether it's of joy or tragedy!
I mean, I hardly EVER cry at films but this is the list of the films that have managed to make me do so (hence why I called this list "Films That Cracked The Rock"). Think I have ordered this in order of films that made me cry the most up to ones that only just managed to do so.

Titanic (1997)
Out of joy or tragedy?
Tragedy.

Which parts?
Jack's death from hypothermia in the Atlantic Ocean just after the Titanic sank completely. And the ending when they "reunite" in the ship at the bottom of the Atlantic around those who perished.

The Lion King (1994)
Out of joy or tragedy?
Both.

Which parts?
Obviously the saddest part: the stampede scene and Mufasa's murder by Scar. On a brighter note, the scene where Simba was walking his way up Pride Rock; like his coronation as King so to speak.

Out of joy or tragedy?
Tragedy.

Which parts?
Benjamin's death in Daisy's arms as an infant-pensioner. Also, as Benjamin was a child and Daisy was an older woman looking after him, he thinks he had a long life but can't remember it and doesn't remember Daisy when she was younger and the life they had together. Also, the birthday cards that Caroline received off him and she'd never known her father.

Out of joy or tragedy?
Both.

Which parts?
You can't help but feel really moved by the scene featuring Severus Snape's memories which reveals the heartbreaking love story between him and Lily, his true loyalties and how far he went to protect Harry. Plus, Harry seeing his parents, Sirius and Remus again as spirits before he was going to die and the ending scene. Finally, knowing that Harry Potter, the cinematic era of my teenage years, has ended was so emotional for me and it's hard knowing there's no more.

Which parts?
People appreciating Merrick and being kind to him. On the other hand, the bullying that Merrick goes through is sickening to watch and his death at the end is so tragic. I mean, his disfigured appearance is horrifying to look at, in an emotional way.

Marley & Me, has come up a few times as being a tearjerker. That must be part of the reason that I'm avoiding watch the film.

I'm glad the ending was really well-done : )

requiem for a dream and hachiko are definite tearjerkers especially for girls!!!

Man, there are some moving moments here, and there's nothing more impressive than a man who ain't ashamed to admit that tears are close. Harry Potter teared me up!
