One Film That Always Makes Me Cry

When it comes to emotional films, I'm usually a cold fish.

I think I must be the only person that cheered when the Titanic sunk. Not because I'm disrespectful but because of how corny the actual love story was. And I seriously doubt any of that funny business was happening on-board the actual Titanic.

But I have, however, been known to shed a tear or two over certain films.

The one that sticks in my head has to be The Land Before Time, directed and produced by Don Bluth, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Released in 1988, it is a tale of five young dinosaurs, separated from their families, making the long and perilous journey to the Great Valley, learning about friendship, love and loss along the way.

I absolutely adored that film as a child and to this very day, I can still quite happily sit and watch it whenever the mood takes me.

But it's bitter-sweet for me. My mother used to watch it with me and ever since she passed away, whenever I even THINK about The Land Before Time, I feel myself getting weepy. But I still willingly watch it because it is worth the tears.

My Mum always used to say that after a while, the film began to drive her crazy because I would insist on watching it 4-5 times a day. However, she would always reassure me that it was a love/hate thing.

So my question to you is, what film is always guaranteed to make you cry?

The film that is guaranteed to make me cry is P.S. I Love You . I can go through an entire box of Kleenex, watching that movie!

I love the "land before time" too. My grandchildren love watching it on Netflix and I of course often have to sit and watch it with them. It is a very good film and I can bear watching it over and over. Train Your Dragon is another good film too. Not many films move me to tears but then, I don't watch many, only children's films really and that only because my grandchildren need the company if they are watching a film.

I think I cry in almost every movie that I see.

I can't help but cry anytime I see Titanic. I know you say the love story is corny, but I guess I am a romantic at heart because I like the love story in that movie. Also, have you ever seen the classic love story movie that was made in the 1950s called "An Affair To Remember"? It stars Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I love that movie and cry each time I see it. It has a great happy ending.

None that I can think of, though I can understand the attachment and the tie with childhood.

Can't say I've ever really cried at a movie (I'm a big, tough guy, after all!) but one which is guaranteed to pluck my nostalgic heartstrings is 'Stand By Me'.
