    OK, I'm a big girl's blouse and I am going to admit that certain movies have managed to make me blub.

    Some examples ;

    Lorenzo's Oil - can't watch it again

    Indecent Proposal (yes really - at the flicks too, my wife thought it was hilarious)

    Judge Dredd - kills me to think what it could have been (OK, I didn't cry)

    Don't care if you all think I'm a wimp for admitting this. Since nearly all members are blokes who else will be man enough to admit what movies put them in touch with their feminine side ;-)

    p.s. my male testosterone forces me to state I am 6 foot, 1st Dan Karate (Gendo Kai), 16 stone. Don't make too much fun of me.....

    I remember Prince of Egypt was quite emotional. Right at the beginning when Moses was cast away into the river.

    This could be due to the fact that my wife was 2 months away from popping our sprog and we are both devout Christians anyway [​IMG]

    Apart from that, any film where the protagonist dies is always a doobie.

    ER.

    How they imbue this series with some regular genuinely moving moments is amazing.

    A lot of films manage to get me very emotional.

    I've even been known to have a bit of a weep at EastEnders!!!

    Did I say that out loud???

    Oh dear, there goes whatever cred I had left.... [​IMG]

    It's a Wonderful life right at the end when the bell rings on the Christmas tree and the little girl tells her dad James Stewart how an angel gets its wings,after all his friends and family pull him out of financial ruin.I have a notion I may not be alone on this one,or maybe I am.
    Ah well who cares.... [​IMG]

    Iron Giant has me filling up at the end. A great film & probably my best ever "blind" buy.

    Yeah Iron Giant had me blubbing too.

    I also have to admit to tears rolling down my cheaks when I saw Gladiator at the cinema..I found the ending VERY emotional.

    Beaches with Bette Midler, weepy or what!

    Other than that Blair Witch as I could have spent the money on something else!

    The Untold Story R0 Tai Seng starring Anthony Wong. I cried at the end of that because it is such a visceral film it made me realise so succintly how fragile my three daughters are.

    I thought Face Off \ Gladiator was quite emotional.
    I think it's got something to do with the combination of emotional and sentimental scenes and excellent sound track by Hans Zimmer.

    oh an Leon too!

    Aw.... never realised what a warm and fuzzy bunch we all are.

    What prompted my post was watching Three Kings (my god, worst photography ever IMHO).

    Seeing the mother get her head blown off in front of the little girl nearly resulted in the off button.

    I never used to be so fragile. A 19 month old little girl and a cat probably has something to do with it.

    Chances of me watching the Exorcist now ?

    Zilch.

    Got to be the Shawshank Redemption for me. I had downed a few ales during the film which is my excuse. Watched it on VHS originally but just got the DVD. I must make sure I've had a few beers when I watch it again, just so I can keep up the pretence!

    Oh yes, and anything wilth Lassie!

    As far as the misses is concerned its like having an extra sound channel that automatically comes on at the slightest hint of emotion............

    That one takes entertaining viewing about as far as I'm prepared to go. I defy anyone to sit through it and not be affected.

    But Babe and The Thin Red Line got me. Babe still does. It's such a lovely film. Once I've had my fix of that it's back to nasties and kung fu. Hurrah!

    Can I add the following, as my own choices?!

    ER - as others have said, there are some very emotionally powerful moments in this series!

    An American Tail - still one of my favourite animated films, and one I always watch at Christmas when the BBC show it!

    The Killing Fields - the ending is pretty tear-worthy, in my opinion.

    Never actually cried but 2 films stand out in the memory for getting the lump in the throat.

    Schindlers List - at the end around the grave
    Shadowlands - when Anthony Hopkins is in the loft with the boy explaining the death of his mother - what an actor !!

    Well, unoriginal as it may be (but apparently not in this particular thread), I must say Titanic.
    Also, but don't quote me on this, I must say that the end of Armageddon actually made me, well not actually cry, but, well, you know...
    What Dreams May Come had some moving moments, too.

    Sniff, boohooo.... just watched braveheart on me new big screen, was like watching it for the first time.
    Would have cried if I was alone, but in the presence of others, I hold it all back.
    Boohooo, sniff.

    What about The Elephant Man ?
    The part where Micheal Elphick brought everyone in to see him and they had a party.
    As a child it killed me. Obviously the ending is no laugh either!

    I wonder if we could have a 'big girl's blouse' forum. Seems like there is a need for one. Maybe a blubbers anonamous whilst we are at it. That Sound of Music thing on ITV last night made me sick, where can I put that posting?

    ET had me blubbing when I whent to the cinema on a Boys Brigade outing when I was 12. That took me a while to live down.

    Field of Dreams is one of my favourites and allways sets me off.

    Ghost. God there's loads.

    I think that films where you see a bloke crying are some of the ones that make you cry easier.
    Dont know why
