'High, High. Yaw Both High and Smokin' Weeeed in Front of My Howse"Bah-Brahhh-Teen Mom
I saw the movie last week, and yes, the previews of Jennifer Garner dancing and everything all cheery is horseshit (too much time in the LeAnn thread). But the kid didn't exactly die... i won't give it away, but I didn't leave feeling all happy. The kid who stars as Timothy is such a doll...
Huh, I haven't heard about this movie at all.
I cried my eyes out in the last scene of Schindler's List, the ending of About Schmidt, the ending of Million Dollar Baby, Beaches (damn you Bette Midler!), Stella Dallas (again, damn you Bette Midler!), Steel Magnolias (damn you Sally Field!), The Way We Were (that whole movie depressed me and angered me way too much at the same time), the beginning of Up... it's just way too many movies to count. And really, all it takes is a vaguely sad video about neglected animals and I become a mess. I'm not that difficult. I also always tear up in Madonna's video for Papa don't Preach in the last scene where her father hugs her.
However, I didn't cry in Philadelphia. I was prepared to cry. I liked Tom Hanks' character and AIDS sucks but I didn't shed one tear. I felt pretty shitty about that.
What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?
You can hear the parents laughing and egging them on while the kids are bawling. And of course they have to put it on youtube. Maybe they were hoping to get a reaction like the kids who went to the dentist.....that was funny. But these poor boys were sobbing while ma and pa laugh. I have a feeling that those parents aren't going to like the public opinion that is coming their way. Stupid fucktards.
Aw poor kids.
I never used to cry during movies, but now I weep at every little thing. The one movie that traumatized me was Mask. Especially since I had this notion that the film ended with him running off with the blind girl, for some reason I thought I'd read that's how it ended. Nope. I was legit weeping for 20 minutes straight, not helped by the fact it's based on a true story.
No matter how many times I watch it, I still cry at the end of Ghost. Just because it would be so great to be able to have that final goodbye. Also little over the top Ricky Schroeder in Champ, the little boy with Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs Kramer when they make their last breakfast together.....
And the last scenes of Gladiator, with that wonderful, haunting, music in the background.
Other than that I mostly cry at unexpected moments/scenes, and at scenes of which you just KNOW they wrote for the effect, but darn, does it work. With the first category, the unexpected, you're caught so off guard that afterwards you have to rerun it in your head to try to see why that particular scene got to you when it didn't appear to be too emotional or intended to get such an emotional response. It's weird.
