    Les Miserables the other day was the closest ive come to crying in a cinema. Took every smile and gulp to keep the tears away.
    Just came back from that. Sobbing my ass off by the end, despite seeing the show twice over the years. I thought the film was fantastic actually and almost like a complementary thing to the stage show. Missed a full orchestra ramming my ears though. Hathaway and Jackson tremendous, Crowe singing with a weird trans Atlantic accent a lot of the time

    Is it embarrassing that I always find myself having a little sniffle at the end of Baz Lurhman's Romeo andd Juliet?

    If it helps, there's no giant robots, tentacles or schoolgirls getting saved/ravaged by said robots or tentacles.

    So, as others have said, it's not *really* anime.

    I remember watching the constant gardener at the pictures and not being able to leave until after the credits because I was crying so much! saw gran turismo at the cinema as well, cried at that halfway through AND at the end.

    Andy playing with the toys at the end tore me up :-(

    Green Mile gets me every time.
    Marley and Me is the work of the devil. Fucking floods of tears at that. Missus had already seen it so left near the end as she didn't want to cry. Laughed at her. She came back into the room to see me a tearful mess.

    "Enjoy" is probably stretching it. But it's well worth seeing. Once.

    Grave of the Fireflies is a story about the effects of war on a civilian population told through the medium of Japanese animation.

    It is one of the very few if not the only film that ever brought on a full cry from me, and it is difficult to repeat watch. It's a Studio Ghibli film. Truly moving. Give it a go.

    When I first saw Silent Running many, many years ago I was inconsolable. I was only about 7 though.

    Sometimes I think you're okay.

    Sometimes I think you're a cuntface.

    Why are you disregarding all anime ever?

    Speak the truth hussy!

    I'm too scared to watch grave of the fireflies.

    Mowgli. Irrational sweeping statements about things you are ill-informed about do not win friends and influence people.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Bambi (1942)

    Yup, thatís about the only film Iíve boo-hoo-ed my eyes out to. I was a kid at the time, we were at the cinema. Even at that young age, the moment Bambiís mother is shot dead, it connected, the thought of if that were to happen, and the sense of isolation it would result it. Strong stuff from Disney.

    I never knew Bambi was so old. Obviously I got to see years and years after it was made.

    Frantic (1988)

    The film does not make me cry. My eye's well up a little when Michelle (Emmanuelle Seigner) takes a bullet at the end. Its emotional stuff.

    Sinbad Eye of the Tiger (1977)

    Didn't cry, but felt really sad the moment the bronze minotaur gets crushed while pulling a large stone, to help others. - that's about all I can remember (watched it years ago).

    I guess it's a death thing that makes us cry, feel sad etc. Not any death, just the death of a character that we take to heart for one reason or another.

    A video game has never hit me in this way. Nope, not once.

    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

    No tears, but the scene when E.T. is dying kinda gets to me.

    A video game has never hit me like a film. Not once come close to that.
    Ff7

    Me3 made me sad. Quite a few games have had the ability to feel sadness and reflect but not the power to cry. To be fair just the way ur is as interactive story telling means it is far harder to get that connection to the characters.
