Movies that made you cry.

Just wanted to see what movies made you get teary-eyed or left a lump in your throat.

I'll start with my list:

Ghost
Mask
Gorillas in the Mist
La Bamba
Lorenzo's Oil
The Champ
My Girl
Up!
The Lion King

Shindler's List. I wasn't old enough to drive yet, though if I saw it today I bet I'd still be hit hard by the tragedy of the time.

In general, I don't watch movies that make the viewers sad - that's what the newspaper is for. Sigh.

The Green Mile is the only one I can recall just off the top of my head. I'll add more later if I can remember some.

I don't remember if I actually shed a tear, but the "No fair" scene in Pet Sematary was heart wrenching.

"Super... man."

"Kitty!"

Those are the lines that make me tear up every time. Name the movies.

Edward Scissorhands had a few cry-scenes in it.

Field Of Dreams always gets me choked up when Costner asks his Dad if he wants to play catch.

Re: Movies that made you cry.

i still, honestly well-up, just a little bit, when the music trumpets and end credit scroll comes on at the end of "Star Wars". it just amazes me, each and everytime to think this was made in 1977 and still has never been rivaled in scope and magnitude of story-telling and effects.

"Grave of the Fireflies" has never failed to leave me sobbing.

Re: Movies that made you cry.

I almost cried at the end of the Kurt Russell film "Soldier" because it cost me $12 to waste two hours of my life on a sunny afternoon!
