MOVIES THAT MAKE ME CRY
I'll spare you the time it would take you (and me) to actually read (list) all of these movies.
- •There are a few (read: million) situations in which I will cry at a movie, regardless of the actual context or intention.Most of the time my crying is appropriate, sometimes it's not. Eh. If I feel it coming on, I let it out. See how emotionally healthy I am? 😩😖
- •Little kids feeling.Anytime a kid of any age is crying because they've lost their parent, or misses their parent, or misses their friends, or is sad in any way, I will cry. Because I instantly consider that my kids have felt sad and it breaks my heart. Pictured: The Secret Life of Bees. If you'd like to be devastated for a day or more, watch this! Yes, it's heartwarming, but in the worst possible way. But great acting by all. 💯
- •Old people feeling.Old people sharing regrets, past emotional wounds, or experiencing anxiety or frustration or fear- ugh. Old people in love is the WORST trigger for me to cry in a movie. "He loved her so much"--- I can't, guys, I can't. Makes me instantly consider that my grandparents and parents have lifetimes worth of "stuff" they they're carrying around. Pictured: Shawshank Redemption. The old man trying to live in the world makes me feel so sad I get physically ill. I CAN'T.
- •Love that not exist circumstantially.People falling in love and then being separated by distance, age, time, roots or any other circumstance is like- no. It's an injustice to the world and I can't deal. I am the only sucker who thinks Romeo and Juliet is totally heartbreaking and tragic (although I do recognize that it was also completely avoidable, love makes people crazy!). Also consider every rom-com ever created, and most dramas, and like 90% of movies in general. Pictured: Benjamin Button.
- •An underdog pulling through.See: 98% of sports movies. Do I really need to explain this? No, you get it... Pictured: Remember the Titans.
- •True stories of historical figures or situations.Anything that resembles an overcoming of injustice or heartbreak, or prejudice or strife- I'm there. I love history, especially American history, so I love seeing the drama play out on a big screen. People are just the same as always- I'll ALWAYS be willing to watch someone's struggle with life, ESPECIALLY if I know that the outcome had an impact on our American story. Pictured: Ali.
- •And just for fun, the winner of pretty much all of these categories is... YOU GUESSED IT!
- •Where kids are told bedtime stories before they drown..
- •Old people hold hands in bed while they drown...
- •True love is unable to survive the icy sea..Although she could've spared some fucking room on that door..
- •Jack proved that underdogs are worth fighting for..
- •Rose overcame her personal strife and died in her bed surrounded by pictures of family and love....
- •And a tragic event was burned into history.
- •In conclusion: when I watch movies I cry. The end.
