    Titty Baby Bunting Cries For His Dummy!

    Alright all,

    Now, as you all know, I'm all man, 100% male, hewn from the marble throne of Odin; the male form perfected. I am he.

    (Note: The above may or may not be utter bilge)

    However, even hard-knocks such as myself have been known to shed the odd tear whilst watching a film, every now and again, so I was wondering, what films make us cry? Now, if you blub at every slightly sad film you watch, then post away, but I'm more interested in hearing what films got under the skin of those of us who normally would not cry during a film.

    For me, I can recall two films that made me cry, both when I was quite young, and 2 that almost did, when I was 'grown up'.

    The first of the films that made me blub, when I was about 8, was some black and white WWII film, that I can't remember the name of (not very interesting then really, is it?). At the end, the two Brit \ American soldiers who had been the focus of the film, were trapped and drowned in a water-filled cellar. I can remember filling up (no pun intended) to this day.

    I remember like it was yesterday, that the credits rolled and the screen cut away as the cellar was filling up, and I remember vividly saying to my old man "Did they get out Dad?" and trying to hide my face when he said they didn't. I knew they didn't, but... well, I don't know really; I thought he'd say they did, I suppose.

    And the other film that choked me, when I was knee high to a cliché, was a film called 'Silent Running'. (http://www.play.com/play247.asp?sear...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

    It’s a cheesy Sci-Fi film from 1971, which I suppose I watched on the box in about 1988\89. There are these two robots, Huey and Dewey, and at the end, they crew of the ship have to leave one of the robots behind. This really sad music plays, and you see the one left behind going about his duties, watering plants and the like.

    Really choked me when I was a nipper and watched it; to be honest, I think it’s still with me today, as even now, the thought of someone being left behind or left alone makes me sad. Obviously it would, but I think it’s been heightened because of this film I watched ages ago.

    Anyway, as I've exposed my soft, pink underbelly now, I'll just mention the other two films which, whilst not making me cry, brought a lump to my throat.

    The first was Saving Private Ryan. The sheer heart-pumping first 15 minutes, and then the story as it unfolds, and the old man visiting the grave at the end. Bit of a rollercoaster of emotions that, and I was feeling all of them as the film went on.

    And finally, and perhaps most embarrassingly, the bit near the end of Forrest Gump, where Gump finds out he has a kid, who's smart and intelligent, and he breaks down in tears. Brought a lump to my throat, I can tell you.

    Now, over to you lot.

    There's only really been one film that's brought a lump to my throat/made me cry, and that was What Dreams May Come (Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding jnr). Whilst completely different from the book (COMPLETELY! They should have given it a different bloody name, for gods sake!), the scenes in which Chris (Robin) is reunited with his Children in heaven made me cry. I'm not talking just a tear in the corner of my eye, here... I mean full on BLUBBING like a schoolgirl who just got her first wedgie in the PE changing rooms.

    The book may be better, but the film is still damned beautiful.

    Ah silent Running - that was the one with the little robots Huey Duey and Louie, always loved that film...sob..

    <Ahem>

    Yep - Saving Private Ryan for me, the incredible sight of the old man falling to his knees at the sight of so many graves at the beginning - seriously choking stuff

    Secondly - Bi-Centenial man. The end gets me every time. Yes - I know, shoot me. End it now.

    The Green Mile very nearly, as with Armageddon. But Gladiator... The haunting music at the end.... God how I was fighting back the tears

    The end of Pay It Forward was so emotional too

    Ah yes, silent running, just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye. I bawled for hours after watching this film as a kid, and it still does it for me now !!

    More recently went to see Iron Giant at cinema with my girlfriend at the time (obviously there was me, her, a couple of adults and several hundred kids ). When he did his Superman bit at the end, that set her off which set me off, and the kids next to us - till virtually the whole cinema was bawling. The ushers must have had when we all traipsed out with red eyes.

    Armageddon gets me everytime I'm afraid to say, as does the butterfly effect when he looses the love of his life so she could have a better quality of life. Bet ya nobody on here could keep a dry face

    I'd agree on Silent Running and SPR, both wonderful films, but I'd also add Shawshank - and the one which always gets me (I'm a sucker for Capra), "It's A Wonderful Life"

    butterfly effect when he looses the love of his life so she could have a better quality of life
    I have seen both endings and I must say that this is the inferior of the two, if you haven't seen the other ending then try and see it.

    Green Mile is the only film that has really got to me in my adult life, but when I was 6 my Mum and Dad took me to see ET at the local cinema, I didn't stop crying for ages....what a wus!!!

    *ahem* you are all going to laugh like mad people but the films that get to me most are "Cool Runnings" right at the end once they have crashed and they carry the bobsled over the line on their shoulders and Saving Private Ryan also.

    One film i can remember crying my eyes out at was when i was about 10.It was called The Champ.At the end when The Champ gets knocked out and Dies his little blonde haired son starts crying and screaming at him to get up.Even my Mam was shedding a few tears.Now i can't think of any films i've cried at when i'm grown up.I'm bound to remember when i wake up properly.

    Apollo 13 at the end when everyone thinks they are dead.
    Ditto with Cool Runnings as well.
    Strangely seem to be immune to films like Saving Private Ryen

    As i remember i've never cried at a film in the cinema or at home, maybe i'm just too manly

    There have been emotional moments though, green mile and butterfly effect stand out as 2 recently, i just tend to go very quiet rather than start crying like an infant
