I tend to get emotional easily when I watch movies but there's some movies that still really make me cry every time I watch them, like for example Schindler's list, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hair, Dead Poet's Society or Les Misérables. What movies made you cry or touched you the most?

I also have to confess that I cried all the way through the last Harry Potter movie when I went to see it, from like the first minutes until the very end because I felt like it was the end of my childhood when Harry Potter ended

LOTR 3 (when you watch them all closely, the end is extremely bittersweet, you could just cry for Sam)

Drive's ending carried good emotional weight to it

Up is touching throughout.

WALL-E, without even speaking, endears you to his character

probably "whisper of the heart" - the ending is...well I had a bit of a girly moment and thought "n'aww..." and that's extremely rare coming from me :lol: I had a major case of "the feels"

Titanic gets me everytime I'm always wailing 'only one boat came back' whilst crying :laugh: I cried during the lovely bones and I was a wreck during the Perks of Being a Wallflower

I've never cried watching a movie but some movies make me very overwhelmed. I really liked Safe Haven

I don't think I've ever cried during a film.

I actually bought the dvd of grave of the fireflies and I put it in thinking "I'm apparently going to cry a lot at the end of this movie" but I didn't, I felt a bit bad for not being touched or saddened :lol: the atmosphere sort of seemed like the little girl (spoilers alert for anyone who hasn't seen it) died peacefully and not in very much pain, especially because her last words weren't the words of somebody who was in total misery - and the absence of sad music really was to blame for me not "feeling the correct way" I think, I'm the sort of person who will feel however music will tell me to feel, and with silence it really hasa hit or miss effect with me

:p: I can understand that. Normally I need some kind of wonderfully crushing soundtrack to get me that upset, too (think Thomas Newman), but I refrained from listing all of those films here 'cause I realised it might be more the music than the story that did it for me.

You are bad and you should feel bad! :lol:
I jest, of course, though I'm still surprised you were more touched by 'Whisper of the Heart' than GOTF.

but to be fair grave of the fireflies (for most of the movie; it dragged on very slightly at the end in my honest opinion and they could have concluded it sooner) was an outstanding film and definitely one of my favourite animated movies, whether or not I broke down at the end :lol:. and but WOTH had an ending with happy music! it made a world of difference for me aha

Beaches - couldn't stop crying Plus the song "wind beneath my wings " was a favourite of my gran and she asked us to play it to her when I said goodbye so it means a lot.

Animal films make me cry as well - cried at Red dog. Loved that film!
