... why do you watch it?<br><br>I admit, there are a few movies out there that get to me. My eyes tear up and all that.<br><br>But I'm wondering, if you know that a movie makes you cry, then why do you watch it?<br><br>Off the top of my head, two movie moments that choke me up are:<br>Near the end of Saving Private Rayen, where the old soldier turns to his wife in the graveyard and asks her if he's been a good man.<br>The other is in the original black and white version of A Christmas Carol where Scrooge apologizes to his nephews girlfriend. “Can you forgive a pigheaded old fool for having no eyes to see with, nor ears to hear with all these years?” It's all over after that.<br><br>This thread is dedicated to Lisaz and her pet show.<br><br><br>The thread killer
Aw, Lisa. It wasn't a dig at you. I may tease you, but truth be told, I can't stand to see an animal suffer. I remember watching a movie where an entire community gets slaughtered by bad guys, and I was perfectly okay with that, but on the way out, they killed the dog. That upset me so much, I turned off the movie. Okay, I turned it back on a few minutes later because I had to make sure that justice was done and the bad guys got their come up-ens. <br><br>I'm a softy when it comes to fur folk. ssssshhhh, don't tell anyone.<br><br>The thread killer

I am like that too. I hate it when animals are hurt. The one that gets me every time is the original Incredible Journey. No matter that I know old Bodger is coming back I always cry. We had 2 dogs like Bodger and we just adored them. Forget even trying to watch Old Yeller. I can't.<br><br>
Love Liza made me cry quite a bit. Not because the guy's wife has killed herself, but because of how out of control and lost the man becomes. It is such a great film, not heavy handed– just heavy.<br><br>edit: ...and why do you watch... I only watched this once. But I guess if I ever want to cry my eyes out, and feel something I will watch again. <br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by cherry on 12/03/03 11:09 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
'Glory' - only because of the charge on the fort at the end was such a hopeless endeavor, and the men knew it- and they did it anyway....<br><br>Sometimes you need to have that emotion- it's cathartic. <br><br>
