One Flew Over The Cockoo's Nest. 68 more days.
In Treasure Planet when Silver is giving his speech to Jim.
“Now, you listen to me, James Hawkins. You got the makings of greatness in you, but you gotta take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it, no matter the squalls! And when the time comes, you'll get the chance to really test the cut of your sails and show what you're made of! And... well, I hope I'm there, catching some of the light coming off you that day.’
I cry every time. I never had a father or a positive male role model in my life and this scene hits me hard every time
"you're gonna rattle the stars"
I fucking love that film
"Look at you, glowing like a solar fire."
Treasure Planet was always my favorite movie as a kid, I love the characters and story, especially Silver and B.E.N. as one signified a father figure and the other a true friend. Very underappreciated 💓, and someday I want to get a tattoo of the star map. Truly one of the only movies that made a huge impact on me growing up, don't care what people say but disney got it right with that film.
Such an underappreciated movie!
Forrest Gump, when he first meets his kid and he gets all scared, and he’s asking if the kid is smart or like him (he can’t quite get the words out). Jenny tells him that he’s smart and he’s so relieved… I tear up a little just thinking about it even
“You would be so proud of him, Jenny”
The sequence of him talking to Jenny’s grave gets those onion chopping ninjas going for me every. Damn. Time. Tom Hanks is a masterful actor.
Can't believe I had to scroll this far for Forrest Gump. So many beautiful and sad scenes. "Momma died on a tuesday" and "Bubba was my best friend, and if I'd have known this was the last time I was ever gonna tall to him, I'd have thought of something better to say" ....hits me right in the feels.
And that's all I have to say about that.
"Sometimes I guess there just aren't enough rocks"
Oof that scene gets me every time. So many relatable emotions in the last 30 minutes of that movie.
The Father for Anthony Hopkins
When Shadow walks over the hill at the end, gets me everytime.
My cousin died when she was 18. She used to watch this with my brothers when they were little kids and she would wait on my grandmas porch for my brothers to come play and when they showed up she ran to them and yelled “my boys! Oh my boys!” (The part of the movie where sassy finds shadow and chance). I can’t watch this movie without thinking of her. She was a special person in our lives…especially my brothers…it’s a hard watch without this memory…but with my memory of my cousin, it’s almost unbearable to sit through..
The last ping-pong game fucked me up.
Is this when they went to the beach?
Yup. It was a surprisingly well done instance of making time matter to a time traveler.
Yup. I think the only other time I've cried that much was when my dog died. Absolutely destroyed me.
Yeah…the look of realization that he is losing his son forever and last time he will get to learn about his sons life.
I was scrolling down looking for someone to mention this. It hits me so hard!
Such a good movie that doesn’t get the exposure it deserves. I recommend it to everyone that hasn’t seen it.
One of my all time favorite movies. I didn’t realize this many people have seen it
Gladiator, you know the scene.
To walk through the fields of wheat.....
Go to them.
He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him
Ya know most movies with any emotional moments tend to get me welling up, I think it’s just because since I’ve become an adult things are more relatable.
Lost it at the end of Coco and Soul.
Everyone’s gangsta until Mama Coco starts singing.
Yeah the end of Soul drowned my wife and I in tears. Hit us super hard.
Ditto on Soul. When Joe lets go of 22’s hand, here come the tears.
Adding to the emotion is the beyond amazing soundtrack provided by the uber-talented Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Between that and the soft music playing when Joe reminisces about his life…I’m finished.
I really love soul. I love how he looks around the museum of life and says “I didn’t accomplish anything?” But at his flashback playing his piano at the very end, he remembers those exact moments as beautiful and is grateful for each one. It’s more than okay to just exist.
“I’m just afraid that if I die tomorrow my whole life will have amounted to nothing.” That line hit me hard, I was not ready for how heavy that movie got
Me earl and the dying girl. How can a tragic movie be so funny? A messed up masterpiece it is.
I just watched the trailer and I'm already teary
Saving Private Ryan. Damn. I kind of keep it choked back until he asks his wife if he’s been a good man.
Dammit. Im even tearing up thinking about it.
Good Will Hunting.
“It’s not your fault…”
The scene with Matt Damon’s and Ben Afleck’s characters talking about the future and Afleck says something to the effect of “the best part of his day is walking from the car to your front door and hoping you aren’t there”
No selfishness, no ego! just a guy wanting his mate to make the best of what gifts he has for himself!
“Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way but, in 20 years if you're still livin' here, comin' over to my house, watchin' the Patriots games, workin' construction, I'll fuckin' kill ya. That's not a threat, that's a fact, I'll fuckin' kill ya.”
You like crying?
How about this crying.
Lots of onion cutting scenes in this movie, when Will tears through the soul of Robin William's character discussing the piece of art on the wall.
I cry very easily from many movies. but his monologue about his wife had me sobbing. incredible performance
Robin’s speech afterwards on the park bench about experiencing life was incredible. Honestly I think it’s the best movie monologue of all time.
“I will end you. Got that chief?”
Schindler's list, every time
I had to scroll a LONG way to find Schindler’s List.
It’s a multi-cry, sad for loss, cry at humanity, angry cry movie.
The iron giant. I’m fucking 24 and that ending still gets me
I'm a 29 year old woman and I saw the movie for the first time at 6 years old, back when it was in the theater. That ending scene is a god damn rollercoaster.
You stay. I go.
The Green Mile
Edit: uuggghhh, I’m watching it now. It’s on Netflix, fyi
I can make it all the way through until John says “Don’t put the hood on me boss, I’m afraid of the dark”. That’s the line that opens the floodgates
Big Fish, the older I get the harder it hits.
Not knowing anything about that movie, I went to see it about a week after my dad died. Talk about ugly crying....
Yep I have a daughter and the end where he sings 'Remember Me.' It just breaks me down everytime.
And then coco dies and is with her parents together finally and you don't know whether to cry tears of joy or sad tears because she died
Somehow, Click. Yeah, that comedy with Adam Sandler nearly had me burst into tears near the end of it
Dude that was low key one of Sandler’s best acting performances. Went from comedy to drama real fast.
Agreed. When you see this, Uncut Gems, and Punch Drunk Love it makes you wonder what other movies he could have made if didn’t just want to have fun with his buddies making Netflix filler. I mean, if I could be payed millions to be flow around to tropical places and goof off with my mates, I would do that in a heartbeat, but still makes you wonder what we missed out on.
Him realising he skipped the last conversation with his father and then finding out he was dead; as well as him dying in the middle of the rain while his family was by his side made me cry like hell. Then him being able to go back and go directly to his parents' home in the middle of the night only to hug them with joy also made me cry.
Say whatever you want from Adam Sandler and his movies... but damn if this movie didn't make me appreciate the time I have with my beloved ones.
Adam Sandler is actually a pretty good dramatic actor when he wants to be. He just prefers to make budget comedy films with his buddies.
And this is why I like him. Most people complain about his movies or his humor, but to be honest, I love his movies: Click, Little Nicky, Don't mess with the Zohan, Pixels, that animated movie during Christmas eve (for as absurd as it is, that's another movie of him where I cry too), I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry, Grown ups 2 (I liked that movie more than the first one because it feels like a cool Friday night when you wanna go back to feel like a kid again despite being an adult with responsibilities).
The Wedding Singer is one of my favorite movies. He’s so good in it.
Same here. Was not expecting to sob watching an Adam Sandler movie.
I watched that movie at home and cried. The my teacher played it a month later in class and i cried again.
When he’s dying in the parking lot in the rain telling his son not to be like him I was bawling
Fuckin Land Before Time.
Yep yep yep
When he is trying to put EVE out in the sun to charge. Heart-wrenching.
Life of Pi
Bridge to terabithia still gets me in the feels
That movie is truly something else when you’re a kid. When we’re children, we can’t fathom kids dying, because in our minds people only die when they’re very old. So when I watched the movie it shifted my view on life, it made me aware of my mortality and that one day a kid in my class could actually die. I could even die even though I was only 9. It made me appreciate life in a way nothing else did.
As an adult we know kids die but we don’t want to accept it. Because it’s so unbelievably hard to imagine the pain that goes with it. There’s a reason outliving your kids is considered the worst thing to happen to someone. It’s a very hard thing to make a story about and I think that film did it very well.
That movie really woke me up to what loss was.
The scene in *Interstellar* where Cooper is watching the video message from his family gets me every time.
Honestly, I go more when he's leaving home and you hear the countdown of the rocket launch and then Murph finally runs out to say goodbye but she's too late... The score of that movie is just ridiculous.
Oh, I remember that shot where the truck is kicking up dust and it's framed to look like the steam from a rocket launch.
I should rewatch that
Hans Zimmer is an absolute genius.
The fact that he chose to use the organ because he considers it a human instrument due to it “breathing with air” is so cool. Definitely a visionary. That and he made the main theme with the intention of it being about a father and his son, but ended up being perfect for murph and coop instead.
The music just rubs onions in your eyes during that scene.
Also at the end when old Murph says “Because my dad promised me”
It's so fucking sad cause he had to face the consequences of his sacrifice and see how it affected everyone around him. It was so horrifying that I couldnt even tear up. I was in "NOPE" mode.
What's worse is from his point of view, it's been less than a week. His son, his daughter were in elementary school last week. He's hearing about his sons crush becoming his wife, grandsons birth and death, and divorce all in a matter of moments... seconds. With his son he saw some progression, but with Murph, it was BAM shes an adult who's still angry at him.
When him and the old lady cooper interact wtf i was 14 back then you made me nostalgic
“Nobody believed me, but I knew you’d come back.”
“Because my dad promised me.”
Yup, that one is tough to get through.
Dammit it played through in my head and I teared up.
Also the end when Cooper meets his daughter who is very old.
"I knew my dad would come back for me." 😭😭😭
Field of Dreams
Dad...wanna have a catch? *every time*
Return of the King. 2 parts. Every time.
1) "I can't carry it for you... BUT I CAN CARRY YOU!"
2) "My friends. You bow to no one."
Every single time man.
For me it’s the lighting of the beacons and Theoden’s answer. Something about the devotion to the connection between the two peoples… it wrecks me. It’s that kind of solidarity I long for in this world.
Edited to add missing adverb.
Not wrong. I came here to say the same thing.
The Scene where Theoden rallies his army as they’re all chanting “DEATH!!!!” Never fails to give me goosebumps.
"Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden!
spear shall be shaken, shield shall be splintered,
a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now, ride! Ride for ruin and the world's ending!
Death! Death! Death!
This scene always brings me to the verge of tears with how epic it is.
I used to listen to this all the time to hype me up
Even though I knew: the "death" of Gandalf and death of Boromir in Fellowship. Good God, Howard Shore. Why do you do this to me, and can you do it some more?
For me, it's the scene at the river.
"Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee. And I don't mean to."
'I would have followed you. My brother. My captain. My king.'
when you realize that they sent 3 eagles because 1 of those was to pick up Gollum 🥲
OH...yea damn never noticed that....nice catch!!
Oh shit. Even then they had some hope for him. Poor guy.
Man I’m about to cry now just thinking about it.
Gandalf was one of the few people who had hope in everyone.
I wholeheartedly feel that Gandalf had hope for Gollum too. I feel like he even scolded Frodo about Gollum. Here’s the lines from the movie
Frodo: 'It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill Gollum when he had the chance.'
Gandalf: 'Pity? It's a pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.
Truth. Also sometimes on the very end scene where Frodo leaves
It is time now, Frodo.
Land Before Time. Mother dying scene gets me everytime.
My partner hasn’t cried in the 4 years I have known him, but will admit to almost crying at Saving Private Ryan
The final scene, where he asks his wife if he has lived a good life. Niagara Falls!
Wade dying kills me inside more than the end.
Not strictly a film but the last scene of Blackadder Goes Forth
If Blackadder S4 doesn't count as "fillum", the pretentious pricks can pork themselves.
i had just watched a walk to remember and shit was rough lmao
I cry so badly everytime i watch this movie.
It's at a point like the movie i cannot watch again but i will not delete ever from my folder.
Jojo Rabbit and Up
At least I'm glad the movie has it's fun moments due to it playing from the perspective of a little kid; plus part of its humor (like that Nazi woman sending Hitlerian youth kids with unpluged granades to hug the Russian soldiers as fast as they can)... but Jojo finding the corpse of his mother hung in the middle of town or general klenzendorf bidding farewell to him and then convincing the Russians he was a Jew so he would be spared before the execution are scenes that broke me apart.
Dude the scene where he find his mom got me so bad, and the ending part like you said, both hit me really hard, that movie was really funny but also knew when to get serious and it did it so well
Felt like I ran into a brick wall when he saw the shoes. Fuck.
I cry at the stupidest movies. Cars is a good example
The last scene of *Mr. Holland's Opus*.
Bolt, when he is trapped in the fire barking desperately
Howl’s moving castle, the music is just too much for me, and that animation
Your name, that final scene man
Up, you know why
Coco, remember me!!!
Marley and Me; Old Yeller are the two that come to mind.
Don't watch A Dogs Purpose.
I, a complete idiot, watched this after having to put my cat, that I bottle fed from a day old, down. I haven't cried like that in a movie ever.
Saving Mr Banks. Seriously it’s a must watch lads.
The freaking movie Click lol
Y'all make me wanna re-watch because that has been said quite a few times and I don't remember the moment y'all are referencing.
I'm a sucker for animated movies. Up, Inside Out, Coco . . .
(3/12: Add Turning Red to this list.)
Edit: hey, thanks for all the replies! I pulled those three off the top of my head quick. But I have a low emotional threshold (and my wife loves that; she said don't change) -- many Disney/Pixar movies will get me going. Yes, Encanto. Big Hero 6. Soul. WALL-E. Bolt. Someone else mentioned The Lion King. Yep. I could probably fill the list with most any movie that revolves around family/friendship.
Edit 2: it's not unmanly to talk about feelings and emotions. It's human. If you're ever stuck, talk to someone. Going to a counselor is a good thing. I've had some issues in the last six months and I've been in counseling. I've learned things about myself. This journey is going to be long, but very much worth it. Even if you're not a counselor-type person, find someone you can talk to.
I think the hardest part of the Bing Bong scene for me was you could see him steeling up for the choice he made well before it happened.
That scene fucked me up so bad I had to pause the movie and sob
Absolutely. I need to rewatch it. Been a long time since I've seen that Bing Bong scene.
One thing it did for me was illustrate how a person can reach the no-shits-left-to-give state. Every one of Riley's islands collapsed, with Family Island being the last one. At that point, she was done. I can't imagine being so down and so desperate that all my islands collapse. But it happens to people. And Sadness has a purpose. It's okay to cry -- for anyone -- because it's an error code saying "I'm not okay, I need help." And people are willing to help -- if you just let them.
The grayed out console when Riley gets on the bus is the most accurate artistic depiction of depression I've ever seen.
"You guys, Riley can't feel *anything*."
I had a brief (about a week) stretch of feeling like this, and it's honestly the scariest thing I've felt. It feels so empty inside, and my brain recognizes the emotions it's supposed to be feeling, but instead there's nothing. I think it was one of the biggest times where I felt like I had no control of myself. I'm lucky I recognized it early enough and could take the time to sort out my thoughts and feelings without any pressure.
Oof. Coco was the hardest for me for sure. The moment >!Miguel's strict abuelita starts tearing up seeing his mom reacting to the song... ffs Alzheimer's disease sucks. Also, the fact that grandma Coco hadn't forgotten his dad's song after all those years. The fact that she still loved him even thought as far as she knew he had abandoned them. It was a triple sadness combo.!< I have seen TOO many adults crying in that part.
COCO. Good god. Also, the whole movie, Hector* (I think that was his name? Abuelita’s real dad?) doesn’t have shoes but after they find him, at the end, he’s wearing shoes. Because their family business was cobbling.
Good fucking LORD I’m losin’ it again
Train to Busan, the final scene.
The Shawshank Redemption
Brooks was here gets me, every time.
Get busy living, or get busy dying.
yes. seeing red walk out to andy on that boat gets me every time.
I’m guaranteed to tear up during the shot of Andy driving along the coastline in the red convertible. “He crawled through a River of shit and came out clean on the other side. Andy Dufresne.”
Also: “I hope the Pacific is as blue as it is in my dreams. I hope.”
We got extra credit for going to see Amistad in the theaters when it came out. This was in high school. My friends laughed at me for crying. It was one of the few times in life I didn't give in to peer pressure and called them out for being heartless.
But that was high school. Now I'm nearing 40, and I get teary eyed watching Disney/Pixar with my kids. Last time was watching Hook.
When I was around 17/18 a very close friend of mine was over and we started watching this horror movie
The opening scene was basically like a cat being “tortured” and I’m watching this and I’m hearing the cat’s cries and so I freaked out, started crying and turned the movie off immediately — all the while my friend is laughing their ass off saying “really?! It’s just a movie! Come on”
Sometimes people can get away with saying “it’s just a movie” but sometimes those movies depict things that happen in real life and I can’t handle it
Fast forward to present day, that same friend who was laughing at me brought that time up and apologized for laughing and said they understood why I cried (they have two cats of their own now)
Toy story 3
Dude, I don't even like the Toy Story movies, but I walked in on my ex-wife watching that movie and just saw the scene with the incinerator and fucking started crying. I watched the rest and oh my fucking god that scene where Andy gave Woody to the little girl wrecked me. I'm fucking tearing up just typing about it now. I still don't like the first two, but god damn that third movie is a fucking masterpiece.
"Now you're home"
"He was a soldier of Rome. Honour him." Every damn time.
The whole ending gets me. When his buddy buries that figurine after the gladiators are freed and says something like “I’ll see you again someday, friend. But not today…” as he’s about to leave to go back to his family.
*I Am Legend.*
I was handling it okay when most of the people on Earth died but I lost it during the one scene with the dog.
That’s the scene that makes me not want to rewatch that movie.
Excellent movie through and through. Very depressing though
I Am Sam.
Those scenes where he is justifying keeping his daughter. Heartbreaking.
Grave of the Fireflies, ugh I'm already tearing up
Grave of the fireflies is it's own realm of tears and emotion. That movie is borderline traumatizing for how hard it hits you and it doesn't stop. I haven't watched it again in twenty years, why? Because I cannot handle the emotional abuse and trauma that movie inflicts.
Big hero six , when Tadashi died
The recordings he made while building Baymax gets me every time
The anime movie 'A Silent Voice'. Huge feels from that movie.
Mann, the scene where >!the deaf girl was about to jump off from their balcony after everything was doing great. You never really know what’s going on people’s mind even if they look completeley fine.!< I was legit angry and sad at the same time
Watched Inside out with my post partum wife crying from the opening scene. Was barely able to hold it together and support her until Bing Bong
If you don’t cry for bing bong you’re not human
Bing Bong :(
Where The Red Fern Grows.
The Lion King
It's an indie movie from where I live and it's called Kusina (or Kitchen). Growing up, this girl lost her grandma, father and husband left her, and children died or missing in reference to real-life historical moments. Despite all these, she still finds comfort in staying at her kitchen and cooking meals to her family (even though they're slowly disappearing).
Nearly any Disney movie nowadays. I’m not sure when it started, but damn.
Boys in the hood
Not a movie but the scene from Fresh Prince where Will is upset about his father leaving: "How come he don't want me man?"....I almost bawled
My wife is really sensitive to that scene. She had a dad that didn’t want her either so it’s always rough for her.
A dogs purpose, animals got a soft spot in my heart
First cartoon to ever do it to me, I watched this with my little brother and just sobbed lmao
The part with the van destroyed me.
The Green Mile - When John Coffey says
“I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head, all the time. Can you understand?"
People hurt the ones they love. That's how it is all around the world”
Had me tearing up just copying and pasting it.
‘Field of Dreams’. As a dad, my having a catch days are seriously numbered, and as a son, I’d kill to have a catch with my dad.
Dead Poets Society
Life is beautiful. I cry every single time.
The scene with the tank?
Bon giorno principessaaaaaaa
When Samwise Gamgee says "There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo — and it’s worth fighting for."
Hell fucking yes.
Yeah, and the part where he says "I can't carry it for you, but I can carry *you!*" then picks him up and climbs a mountain.😂
I also get way too sensitive when Faramir tries his best to please his father, but his father still finds him despicable. Yet, Faramir remains absolutely devoted.
The things that can break a man...
Pursuit of happyness. It’s ultimately a happy cry but no doubt
Hachi a dogs tale
Toy Story 3 - Andy gives his toys to Bonnie
The Impossible, the movie about the tsunami staring Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and a young Tom Holland. I don’t cry at movies but when the brothers are reunited and then the dad finds them I had tears streaming down my face.
We Bought A Zoo with Matt Damon.
The scene where he’s looking at the photos of his wife are heartbreaking to me. Plus, a really solid movie.
Quite a few:
The Green Mile - specifically when Coffee gives his "tired of people being ugly" speech.
Children of Men - if you've seen it, you know.
Paddington 2 - the ending scene. Being a dad has softened my hear immensely
Interstellar - when it hits him that his 8 or so hours has cost him everything
Execution scene at the end of Braveheart was the closest I ever came to crying at a movie.
Homeward Bound when the cat falls down the waterfall and you think she’s a goner. Got me even as a little guy.
Spiderman No Way Home.
Seven Pounds (starring Will Smith).
