    I cry in all sad films, the most pathetic one was when Dobby died in HP7 part 1, lol. It's not as bad as my other friends, we were watching titanic and a few of them cried just at the music and through the whole film!
    I second the Dobby part! I agree with everyone who said Titanic, The Notebook (multiple times throughout the film, I'm sure you all know what I mean ) and The Lion King. Also, when Ellie dies at the start of Up...

    I never used to cry when watching films, I don't know why I do now.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the bit when she's just been erased.

    I cry at films quite easily, so it's probably easier for me to list the ones I don't cry at tbh.

    Recent ones I've watched that made me cry are:

    The Hunger Games
    The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud
    Never Let me Go
    The Greatest

    If anyone is going to make you cry- Will Smith will.

    '7 Pounds' or 'Pursuit of Happyness' (purposefully spelt with a y)

    Titanic. Started balling my eyes out at 'I'll never let go Jack', was able to calm down but then went back to fits of tears when she meets him in her dream again. In my defence I was only 11

    18 and I've never watched Titanic, though not sure I want to after the amount of people that have mentioned it on this thread!

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - The way it explored the concept of time was so deep it made me cry at the end

    Toy Story 3 - the part where all the toys were holding hands inside that furnace kills me and at the end when Andy is playing with Bonnie and she asks for Woody and he's reluctant to let go and then finally does it's so sad for some reason

    Son of Babylon, the ending is so sad and tragic.
    It's a film set during the fall of Saddam's Iraq just after the US invasion of 2003, and it's about a boy and his grandmother who goes looking for his father who was a political prisoner.

    Avatar, not because the story was particularly tear-inducing, but it was just so emotional and awe-inspiring.

    Toy Story, because I watched it in the cinema a month before I went to uni (suspect it was part of the marketing ploy)... with my mum sitting next to me weeping away I wasn't particularly sad about going to uni, but because I could remember all my old toys that I'd left behind as I got older, until I didn't have any of them left

    My sister's keeper because i watched it just after my Mum passed away of cancer (silly idea i know!) and it was just such a bonding and sad film

    but pretty much every film makes me cry- Titanic, Pearl Harbour (first at the romance, then i was blubbing at all the people being killed in the war). Any film has me in tears!

    Oh and I cried at the start of the last Harry Potter just because it was the last one!!

    The closest films to making me cry were:

    and surprisingly Bridge to Terebithia
    Don't you mean unsurprisingly?

    So that one, and Grave of the fireflies.
