I sometimes laugh over the silliest things… like how unemotional I am when it comes to movies and how emotional other people can be! I know of (and personally know) a lot of girls who can tear up and cry very easily: that’s not a bad thing, I don’t think. It’s just I often giggle about how unemotional I am about the same movies other people ball over. I’ve really surprised people when I admit that I do not cry over emotional films. I had one lady actually say to me, “That’s very surprising!”
So, the movies I do tear up while watching are very precious to me, because they are few and they have to be very powerful to actually get me to cry. In a sense, they are worth the tears. I’m trying to think of the different films in which I’ve teared up while watching. Three come to mind right away.
Beauty and the Beast: I teared up at the end of this one. I hadn’t seen it since I was maybe four. I know I loved it then, so I was in awe having all these flashbacks from the different scenes. And than the ending was just so amazing, and as the credits started I had to wipe away some tears. 🙂 Oh, it was beautiful.
Captain America the First Avenger: you are probably thinking, “Golly, of all things! She cried during a Marvel Superhero film???” Hey, even my sister teared up during this film! I, in fact, teared up twice while sitting in the theaters. Spoilers!! When Bucky died—because I did not see that coming and it was absolutely heartbreaking. And of course, the end dialogue as the Captain dived the huge killer plane into the ice while talking to Peggy. *Sobs* That was so sad and beautiful and sad and… *sobs some more*. End of Spoilers!!
Gift of the Night Fury: Okay… everyone who saw How To Train Your Dragon needs to see this half hour film. Because it shows more life of the village after the dragons are excepted and people actually care about Hiccup now. And because it is simply AWESOME! I found this on YouTube by accident and just about freaked out. “A SEQUEL!” The story was beautiful and fun with some great lines and everything. But the end with Hiccup and Toothless . . . oh my goodness. Well. I teared up. Badly. It was so beautiful. Oh my gosh. Well, to keep from rambling anymore, I will just say that I am now one of those crazy HTTYD fans and I just ADORE Hiccup and Toothless. (And no, I didn’t cry while watching the original.)
That’s all I can think of right now…I think I might have almost teared up at the end of Toy Story 3… can’t remember.
So, what films have you cried through and you thought it was totally worth it?
