Sometimes I Cry
Have you ever seen a grown man cry? If you haven't, just hang out with me while watching one of these movies and more than likely I'll lose it.
Arguably the most romantic movie of all time, when Rose jumps back on the ship to be with Leo and he kisses her and says “Rose you’re so stupid, you’re so stupid Rose.” My cup of tear runneth over.
Imitation of Life
This is the OG of tear jerkers. This movie is on everybody’s top ten saddest movie list.
A raw, unflinching, and brutal heartbreak masterpiece.
If you’ve seen this I don’t need to explain.
Several scenes moved me, but none more moving than the scene when Denzel was being disciplined by whipping and that one tear fell from his eye. Damn!
Passion of the Christ
If you didn’t cry watching this I don’t know what to say. The brutality and anguish during the toture scenes was astonishing.
Life is Beautiful
Even during the toughest circumstances keep smiling
The Color Purple
Everybody I know who has seen this has cried watching it.
There were a lot of emotional moments in Hotel Rwanda but the scene that killed me was the scene when they had to drive on top of the dead bodies.
Another sentimental classic.
I cried a few times during Braveheart but the scene that affected me the most was when William's wife was about the be killed by the king's men and she was looking around for him to come save her and he never came.
Good Will Hunting
When Will breaks down at the end, I broke down with him. “It’s not your fault, fuck them.”
This may have been the first movie that turned on my water works.
I was cool until the end. I lost it.
I lose it every time I see the scene when McCauley Culkin is lying in his casket and she say’s “His glasses, he can’t see without his glasses.” Enter water works.
Mary & Max
This movie was caught me by surprise. When Max dies and his head is staring up at Mary’s letters pasted on the ceiling my lips began to tremble. LOL
Kramer vs. Kramer
Divorce can be brutal and this movie is one of the best about the subject.
"Hot water burn baby, hot water burn baby!"
Last Chance Harvey
Dustin Hoffman was in rare form and I felt his disposition and awkwardness in this movie. The fact that I wanted him to win so much made it all the more emotional.
Boyz N the Hood
Legends of the Fall
Great story telling and sweeping cinematography, it tells the story of three brothers and the one woman that changes their lives.
Boys Don’t Cry
A very sad true story
Marley & Me
It moved me so much I got my dog after watching it.
This is a tear jerker legend. Ditto!
Sean Penn's anguish over his daughter's murder in the movie was one of the greatest performances of misery I've ever seen.
The Pursuit of Happyness
When I saw this in the theater everybody was crying.
The movie was so real it was like watching a documentary.
The story was so touching. I don't want to spoil anything. See it.
Love & Basketball
This was a film filled with great scenes and even better acting. It should have been a massive hit. The game for love they played at the end accomapanied by the Meshell Ndege Ocello song was perfect.
Sad animated classic
This was the story of a doomed firefighter recounting his life story while trapped in a building waiting to die...sad business.
She was treated so brutally by men it made me weep. It was hard to get through this movie because rape scenes make me uncomfortable. Charlize Theron definitely deserved the Oscar for this one.
(500) Days of summer
If you’ve ever felt the blows of disappointment and heartache this movie will affect you emotionally.
What movies bring you to tears?
