Lots of movies make me cry.  The most recent one was I Am Legend when Will Smith is crying and saying to the mannequin, "please say hello to me".  I blubbed like a baby.

I don't have trouble crying in movies.  If I tear up, I go with it.  Other movies that made me cry (not the full list by any means):

Armageddon:  When Bruce Willis pushes Ben Affleck back into the air lock and Ben Affleck is screaming, "Harry, no!"

Four Weddings And A Funeral:  At the funeral scene where John Hannah's character is reciting that poem for his dead lover.

Lilo and Stitch - Stitch Has A Glitch:  When Stitch dies and Lilo is crying over him.  And Hayley Westenra's beautiful ethereal voice is singing the line, "I will love you always."

V For Vendetta:  When Evie is finally freed from her fear of death and she goes out into the rain with her arms held high and sobbing.

Starman:  When the Starman leaves at the end and he says, "I love you Jenny Hayden."

That's it for now.  I have heaps of other examples, but I'm in real danger of blubbing right now and it's not a good look in the office.

Honestly, I don't remember the movie very well at all, except that the title song played during a scene in which, indeed, Savannah did smile.

On the other hand, given the period of my life in which I think I saw it, I probably watched it back-to-back with Phantasm 2, which tends to skew the emotional responses.

Me too, Kygotc.  I can't watch that episode at all.  I usually skip over it when I'm watching the others.

There are several places in Forrest Gump that get to me, ditto for the Best Years of Our Lives, The Iron Giant, King Kong, Old Yeller, etc. I also found a moment on the bonus disc of Band of Brothers where "Babe" Hefron and Bill Garnere are looking over the woods outside Bastonge, the conversation between the two veterans always gets to me. There are lots more, if I identify strongly with the character or characters, if the story I'm seeing is based on a true incident I will generally have a strong reaction to it, might not always show it but I will feel it.

ARMAGEDDON: "It's my job!"  "You go take care of my little girl now. That's your job."   The perfect storm of Michael Bay's telephone commercial-looking camerawork, Rabin's mercilessly manipulative score and Willis' world weary delivery.

V: "God is in the rain"  Agreed, very moving.  I'm usually primed for that scene by the reading of Valerie's letter("Even though I do not know you and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you...I love you. With all my heart, I love you.")

STARMAN:  Ahhh that long lingering shot of Karen Allen's beautiful face.

  Cheers  Consider this thirded!


- One that lays me sideways is IKIRU.  The film's gotten alot more attention over the last few years and the dvd cover basically gives away the crucial emotional moment, but the image of Takashi Shimura on the playground swing in the gentle snow is absolute poetry.  Above all of Kurosawa's other stunners, this one simple story of a dying bureaucrat's last effort to make a difference will haunt you for a long time.  Some years ago, we watched this in a class on Asian film and my inability to control my emotions caused two girls to lose their composure, one actually had to run from the room.  Embarrassing.  Smile


- The flashback to the last supper with his Apostles as Jesus undergoes his real-time Via Dolorosa in Gibson's PASSION OF THE CHRIST had me blubbering quite severly, though the theatre was humid with the collective moisture of hundreds of wet eyes.  Seconded only by the flashback to his mother helping him after falling as a child that plays parallel to Jesus' mother running to help him on his way to Golgotha.  As with APOCALYPTO, say what you want about Gibson, but you can't deny his cinematic abilities.


- on LOTR:  I still get as misty with Gandalf's 'death' in FELLOWSHIP as I did the first time.  Even though I knew from reading it for years that it really wasn't the end of the road for him, the way Jackson handled the scene was hauntingly effective.  Howard Shore's musical approach for that sequence showed an almost Herrmann-like sense of aesthetic intuition(I know, GEEK!).   The sequence in TWO TOWERS with King Theoden softly reciting the poem("Where is the horse and the rider...) and being dressed for battle as the old men and boys are armed and Saruman's army marches inexorably towards them gets me every time.  Oddly, for such a long-ass film, in RETURN OF THE KING it's the tiny little moment after the destruction of the ring, where Sam and Frodo are perched on a small cleft of rock as Mount Doom disintegrates around them.  They've succeeded in their crucial errand yet they will not make it off the moutain and they know it.  A very tender and moving moment between two sensitive souls stuck "here at the end of all things." I get teary just to trying to write this damn reply.

As much as I love Futurama, that episode is just really, really sad. I have never watched it since the first time I saw it. I love dogs (more than most people) and the thought of that poor doggie waiting all those years in vain...it's heartbreaking. I know at least two other people who cannot watch that episode again, either.

Spoken like a true bad movie geek, the ending of Godzilla 1985 gets me all trembly lipped. It's the combo of Raymond Burr's soliloquy and Big G's death screams as he falls into the volcano. The fact that he was duped into by the same evil mankind that fathered him just makes it all the more painful to sit through.  Bluesad

Cried like a baby, probably because I was 6 or so at the time, but I haven't watched it since...or failed to feel sorry for 'the monster' even just a little.

Thirded

There's a slightly more saccrine movie called 'Barefoot Gen' that I nonetheless recommend.

Of course, an Anime doesn't have to be historical to get the waterworks flowing. As a medium, they really seem to be adept at including all facets of emotion into a story that only advertises one or two.

I've heard Battle Angel is going to be made into a live action by Americans-BUY the Anime and the Manga. Amazing, heartwrenching stuff.

"If it takes forever...I will wait for you..."

That sucked. The thing that really p**ses me off is, how much work would it have been to include Seymour (the dog) as a regular character? Just showing jumping around planet express, barking a few times an episode, work it into a few jokes...but no, they have to let the dog stay dead. Its a vile use of the reset button technique, but that's just the way it is. I was reading the trivia section on the wikipedia page, and according to that, it could have been worse- orginally,  it was a fossilized vesion of Fry's mother, with pretty much the same results, but that was deemed to be too depressing. (To be honest, I'd still be more upset over the dog; the mom was kind of a b***h anyway).

Also, Grave of the Fireflies. And if you happen to be familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist, the episode where Hughes gets killed. You have to be an emotional zombie not to start bawling during the funeral scene.
