The two movies that have moved me are "Legends of the Fall" and "A River Runs Through It!"  These movies for me are what America and Family are all about!  They show both our weaknesses and our strengths.  There are others but these two immediately come to mind!  What are yours and why?

 My all time favorite movie is Terms of endearment. I thought it showed an unbreakable bond between mother and daughter.I can't watch it without sobbing at the end.

"Taking Chance".


Though I'm not much of a Kevin Bacon fan, his portrayal of Lt Col Michael Strobl is phenominal in this tear-jerker about Military escorts of those killed in action. Based on the true story, Lt Col Strobl escorts the remains of Lance Corporal Chance Phelps to Chance's hometown in Wyoming!


Yes, I cried!!!

 I'm not a particularly religious person, but "The Passion of the Christ" got me. My wife and our two friends were weeping alongside me.

 World Trade Center with Nicolas Cage... that movie really got to me... It was heart wrenching.  I had never cried so hard in a movie, as I did this one.

There are so many good movies, but I'm having a difficult time remembering the ones that made me tear up. I went to the rottentomatoes site and looked at the "best" year-by-year, but I gave up when I saw one of the WORST movies (in my opinion) I've ever seen rated 97%: Assault on Precinct 13. That movie made me cry for the lost 3 hours (saw it on TV in a hotel room a couple years ago with lots of commercial breaks).


Edit: Evidently that 97% was for the 1976 version and I saw a 2005 remake. It was just awful. Is the 1976 version really all that?

 Hmmm....... I am going to have to dig deep for this one. 


Courageous, I got teary eyed at that one part.  Bump on the Taking Chance, I am a sucker for military movies that involve a funeral of some sort.  Ace of Hearts, Based on a Police K9 named Ace. You will almost cry on this movie if you are a K9 handler or deal with K9's. My Girl.(no judging lol!). 


I try to stick with comedy, action and anything John Wayne.

Recently I saw a documentary called "H-E-L-L and Back Again.  Only it wasn't titled with caps and dashes.  I had to add them since Monster STILL believes War is Heck.


It takes quite a lot for a movie to make me cry.


That film choked me up.


"From his embed with US Marines Echo Company in Afghanistan, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis reveals the devastating impact a Taliban machine-gun bullet has on the life of 25-year-old Sergeant Nathan Harris. The film seamlessly transitions from stunning war reportage to an intimate, visceral portrait of one man’s personal struggle at home in North Carolina, where Harris confronts the physical and emotional difficulties of re-adjusting to civilian life with the love and support of his wife, Ashley. Masterfully contrasting the intensity of the frontline with the unsettling normalcy of home, H@LL AND BACK AGAIN lays bare the true cost of war.


In 2009, U.S. Marines launched a major helicopter assault on a Taliban stronghold in southern Afghanistan. Within hours of being dropped deep behind enemy lines, 25-year-old Sergeant Nathan Harris’s unit (US Marines Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment) is attacked from all sides. Cut off and surrounded, the Marines fight a ghostlike enemy and experience immense hostility from displaced villagers caught in the middle.


Embedded in Echo Company during the assault, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis captures the frontline action with visceral immediacy. When Sergeant Harris returns home to North Carolina after a life-threatening injury in battle, the film evolves from a war exposé to the story of one man’s personal apocalypse. With the love and support of his wife, Ashley, Harris struggles to overcome the difficulties of transitioning back to civilian life.


In immense physical pain, Sergeant Harris grows addicted to his medication. His agony deepens as he attempts to reconcile the gulf between his experience of war and the terrifying normalcy of life at home. The two realities seamlessly intertwine to communicate both the extraordinary drama of war and, for a generation of soldiers, the no less shocking experience of returning home.


An unprecedented exploration of the moving image and a film of uncommon intimacy, H@LL AND BACK AGAIN comes full circle as it lays bare the true cost of war."

 Lions for Lambs is another great tear checker at the end. Its about two guys in college who take time off to enlist in the Army. They both end up in the same unit, air assualt I believe, and go over to afghanistan. An accident happens while enroute to the lz and the two are tossed from the chinock and get hurt. The rest you will have to watch, especially the end. It will make your proud and cry. I know I did and stoud up and gave a nice HOOAH!!

Eight Below with the sled dogs. 


Taking Chance, Black Hawk Down, Tears of the Sun because they were military movies


Schindler's List and The Pianist were about the Jews and what they went through during the Holocaust.

"Saving Private Ryan" kind of got to me.  The end of the movie especially, it kind of hits pretty close to home for any one that was in the military.

I am a BIG cry baby when it comes to movies....just a few that I pretty much sobbed while watching


CRASH- if you have never seen this go rent today! It really makes you think about your actions and how they are a dominoe affect...


Saving Private Ryan- I never made it to the end of this one I had to turn it off


Courageous- I took my son to the movies to see this the same day I received my divorce draft a marriage of eight years that ended b/c of domestic violence , after watching this movie I set a higher standard for myself and my son. I sobbed during the whole movie, but ironically my son still remembers the creed I'm glad that I took him to see it.


August Rush- if you have a child with special needs this movie will touch your heart in a huge way.


The Green Mile......made me think how we treat people that are different based on assumption...


In Life we should experience an adventure that will create a memory worth repeating.....unknown.....

The most recent movie to cause "spontaneous" watering of my eyes was War Horse. Explaining why would be giving away spoilers and you should really see this movie.

 The Outlaw Josey Wales.


Its an intelligent western and a timeless classic. It explores human relationships in showing that courage and fortitude are needed to stand up to evil, injustice and wrongdoing.

I agree with others who have said 'Taking Chance.' It was a phenomenal film. The show of patriotism by random strangers was moving, and I can recall two scenes in particular that made my eyes water up. If you have not seen this film, I highly recommend it.

Was one of the scenes the hanger scene where the Airman was escorting home his Brother?? I was so choked up, I couldn't even explain it to my Mrs. Had to show her. She finally watched it with me (the 3rd or 4th time I watched it).
