This morning I watched Hair in all of it's two hours of hippies glory and I actually cried– no movie has ever made me cry so much before because what happened was so very very unexpected… I highly recommend it to anyone.

What's the movie(s) that made you cry?

For something on the rank of so sad it's stupid even. You may have been crying on the inside wondering how the hell did it even get through production. My answer: The Sequel to The Mask. That was hands down the worst movie I'd ever seen.

Hmm….the only movies I can think of right now of are Pet Semetary (that kid dying was depressing, so was the funeral) and The Patriot. Though I don't remember ever bawling, just getting teary-eyed and almost crying.

I think the movie was called…Fried Green Tomatoes. But I'm not sure.

Phantom of the Opera and Fiddler on the Roof. But broadway movies are usually pretty sad…

I admit it, I'm a sap! :P

Graveyard of the Fireflys.

That is the most freakin' depressing anime ever! There's just… no happiness in it whatsoever :/

Though never cry, only that weird feeling where you want to, but keep holding it back.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Life is Beautiful
Pink Floyd`s The Wall (It`s more of a depressed feeling)

I'm with everyone on “Graveyard of the Fireflys.” Another movie that makes me cry every time I watch it is a Janese movie called “Comos Flower.” It's about a Japanese girl who gets AIDS from a transfusion after a car accident. Her father is killed in the same accident and she and her mother move back to Japan from South America. When the parents and students at her school find out she has AIDS things go down hill.

I would also go with Grave of the Fireflies. I can't think of too many American films that have captured the complete sense of tragedy. It's too bad they went in a somewhat different direction with the live action version. There are a few anime series which have gotten me just as choked up, if not more so, but the topic was asking for movies.

Schindler's List.

In a different vein, I got choked up in Watchmen at the city destruction scene.

A lot of stuff just kills off empty background characters for shock value. And granted, Watchmen didn't kill the main crew off in that scene, but there was a whole group of sub characters whose lives had been slowly brought forth throughout the series. They were real people; maybe even more real than the main characters. And while there wasn't a strong emotional attachment to any of them, they conveyed a real sense of… well, I suppose innocence, in the grand scheme of things. Most of them were just trying to live their lives, and they didn't do anything to anyone to justify what happened to them.

They made a movie out of Watchmen (the comic book) and nobody told me?

Yeah, sorry about that. I was hoping that the “different vein” line would imply I wasn't talking about a movie.

Though I did read in a recent Wizard that Fox has started working on a Watchmen movie; much to Moore's chagrin.

Passion of the Christ. O.o But that was more out of the fact that he was getting hurt so effin' badly than sadness. They spent waay too long on the “Scourging at the Pillar”. If I'm ever in the mood to be depressed, I'd watch that movie.

But I hardly ever cry in movies. I think Passion of the Christ was the only exception. There have been times where I felt like I was gonna cry, but the tears never came. Even Pokemon's made me cry more than most of those Hollywood films…

Hey, Armageddon made me cry, too. So did Highlander and Highlander: Endgame, The End of the Spear, and several other movies that I can't think of at the moment.
As embarassing as it is to say, Homeward Bound never fails to make me shed a tear. Laugh, if you must. :P

There's still no movie that has succeeded on making me cry. How ever, my eyes get realy realy wet when watching Big Fish and AI (underrated movie!). They get me every time!

I almost got soppy at the end of Cruel Intentions and Carrie.

Yeah, Highlander: Endgame made me cry, too, but probably for a different reason than for you. I really didn't think the franchise could get any worse and they certainly proved me wrong. Plus stock footage in a live action film outside of flashbacks is totally inexcusable.

AI (underrated movie!)

I might agree with you had the movie ended about a half hour earlier. The entire sequence with the aliens really felt tacked on and kind of ruined the rest of the movie.

Hey, Grave, Graveyard, Twilight, whatever… It was a good film.
I'm lucky if I remember anything about the title at all, even if I do have the DVD. I'm just a bit scatter-brained about that sort of thing.

How many Highlander films did they make????? Only the first one was any good.
AI was a Spielberg film right? I thought it was basically an attempt to get back to what he did in ET and Hook. It was full of Spielberg cliché. It wasn’t a good film (although it was very well crafted), but if it affected you emotionally that’s all that counts in the end.

I can't recall if I found a movie that made me cry……..I think its because I don't set my sights to high, and the fact that i'm considered to “have no heart” and I can't be let down, I mean my heart can't be broken, my dreams are all lost and all I see when I sleep is darkness. don't feel bad for me, just try to be nicer, and I know I have no heart because well…….. well……because no one can hurt me emotionaly.

I don't know why everybody sais that. The last half an hour was the most important piece of the movie. The whole piece in the middle actualy could've just been let away. Not that it isn't cool or something, but the destroy all robots show and Gigolo Joe have nothing to do with him searching for the blue fairy. The movie is a long modern-fairytale journy with all sorts of twist just like the tale of Pinochio (accept the modern-part) on wich it's based on.

Nope. Kubreck helped with production and may have helped with the ‘concept’ . Brian Aldiss wrote a short story that was adapted by Ian Watson, and then went to Speilberg who wrote and directed the screenplay. :wink:


Some aspects of AI I liked very much, but the movie as a whole never really appealed to me. And the mushy/cutesy stuff really just cheesed me off.

Ian Watson? That man is a real nutter… I saw a video of an interesting interview with him on his website.

Ah, I THOUGHT it was Spielburg! It's so trademark him.
Yeah well, if you're going to attribute credit to the writers, then you could do that to pretty mch any film by him.
Of the top of my head: Jaws, Duel, Hook, Jurassic park, -all big Spielberg movies, all based on the creative work of other authors. That's how things go in the film bizzo.
