"War Horse"---seriously.

I usually don't get that emotional due to movies, but songs can easily bring tears---happy and sad ones. There are movies like "Bambi", "Old Yeller", and "Shane" that are obviously intended to cause sadness. Also, films like "Schindler's List" and "Enemy At The Gate" cause a reaction as they're based on the truth of a horrific episode in history.

Then, there are movies that cause tears because you wasted a large chunk of money on absolute garbage, like "Cats".

My wife and I went to the drive-in to see this movie on one of our earliest dates. I’ve still never seen the movie. ;)

Don't be afraid to admit you cried. Remember that saying "Boys don't cry"? Well, there's actually two parts to that saying. The saying really is: "Boys don't cry, men do."

Movies that made me sniffle a bit:

BRIAN'S SONG

TAKING CHANCE
View attachment 185798

Please watch TAKING CHANCE. A fallen soldier is brought back to America and Kevin Bacon is the U.S. marine assigned to escort the fallen marine's casket home. True story...and it will make you weep. Yet in those tears there will be a great sense of pride and love for our country and our soldiers. Devastatingly sad film, yet it makes you feel so great knowing that there are people like the fallen Chance and the Kevin Bacon character out there in America.
Taking Chance was a really REALLY good movie....yeah....I teared up a bit in that one.

E.T.

Kind of depends on your age at the time you saw it in the theater.

How about Shane?

This movie had a big affect on me. I wasn't an officer candidate but my boot camp was just as hard. In some ways harder.

But yeah, when he walks into that factory and she doesn't know he's coming....

You know, it’s too bloody hot to go outside this week, so I had a couple hours to kill yesterday afternoon and decided – as a direct result of your post - to watch Titanic … again. For maybe like the 20th time.

You can play Mr. Movie Critic and find all sorts of things wrong with that movie, not the least of which was that after Rose confesses that she had the stone, Mr. Scavenger Guy never follows up on it – not even just to ask what happened to it!

For a guy that spent 3 years and huge sums of money looking for it, that’s pretty hard to believe! - LoL!

Anyway, I’ve seen it too many times for it to have any emotional impact on me – no tears shed. But overall it’s a pretty good movie, and probably the best thing about the Titanic we're ever gonna see.

I always felt that Rose should have gave the necklace to her grand daughter instead of throwing it back into the ocean . There is an " alternate " ending .

I had tears watching Joe Dirt. But it was from laughing. Still one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.
Mine was a scene in "Night On Earth", an artsy type of film made up of five vignettes. The Italian one, with Roberto Benigni, had me laughing so hard I almost plotzed. I recommend it to all. His "Life is Beautiful" movie is both types of tear jerkers at once.

Three Mel Brooks movies can do that as well---"The Producers", "Blazing Saddles", and "Young Frankenstein". Sadly, the first two couldn't be made today due to the PC crowd.

You, (as myself 😊) have most excellent tastes, Sir!
