October Sky
Magnificent Desolation
From the Earth to the Moon ( HBO and Tom Hanks series)

They all remind me of our past greatness, what we have given away, and what we are capable of in the future.

My list includes
Toy Story 3 since my ds's grew up during that era.

Apollo 13 I watch that movie at least 3 times during the month of May. I show it to my AP Calc kids. Some of them know nothing about the space program.

I haven't read the entire thread but Mr Holland's Opus does it for dh and I. We don't even have to see the entire movie all we have to do is see the last 25 minutes. We are both school teachers getting retire and we have seen what music teachers go through. About a month ago it was on very early in the morning and I caught the end of it as dh was getting ready to go in the shower. I turned it off so that I could see the news. He said to me "You got me crying. YOu can't turn it off now."

There are two movies I've cried so hard at that it took me a while to recover.

For sentimental reasons - Snoopy Come Home. I was a hormonal teen at the time and it did me in!

For being overwhelmed with reality - The Killing Fields. I have close family friends that went through those times and the story mirrored everything they've told me. I also identified with the main character trying to get them out since I spent a year watching that process as well.

I just thought of another one. Both versions of The Incredible Journey leave me a blubbering mess at the end.

Two movies

There are two movies that made me ball my eyes out. The first one was Water for Elephants. When he started beating the elephant oh mylanta I absolutely lost it!! I went by myself to the movie and was sitting at the end of the row by the wall and the row was full or I would have left the theater. Still have not been able to watch that movie again.
The second that made me sob was Reign on Me with Adam Sandler. I had no clue at all what it was about when I rented it. I thought is was a comedy because of Adam Sandler. Was I surprised. Good movie though.

I cry at the drop of a hat, so probably very movie I've ever seen has made me cry at one point (even if I was just crying over the price of snacks!).

I cried at all the Jane Austen movies - Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma - both because of the beautiful scenery and because the characters were so clueless! I wanted to lock them in a room until they talked out their differences!

I cried at the treatment the Church of England minister and the Jewish student received at the hands of the British government as well as their teammates in Chariots of Fire.

I cried when Princess Victoria learned she was to be queen. More than 150 years later, we knew what she was in for!

Are you sensing a pattern in my movie-going?

Wife to King Buzz
Mother to Princess Aurora and Princess Merida
