|Seriously, what did you expect?|
Thank god I don't have to go through that crap any more. These days I'm a happy and open, emotional wreck. I can go at any time. Today I was in local café, having a coffee, reading the paper; a sad story about a local girl and I started to cry. The man across from me noticed and remarked on how he wished the papers would print something happy for a change. I sniffed and nodded back at him in agreement.
So, I was thinking of making a list of films that are guaranteed to make you bawl. Please add any as you see fit but keep in mind I will slag your choices if I don't agree. And I am very picky in my film choices. For example; "The Notebook" just don't cut it. Sorry girls, but it's shit. But "It's a Wonderful Life", now that's a classic tearjerker. So here goes anyway, let me know if you agree or not and like I said add on the ones you won't watch without a box of Kleenex at the ready.
|Captain's Courageous: If nothing else, see this film.|
E.T. - I love it cause it makes me cry happy tears as well as sad ones.
Garage - You'll want to take the same route as Josie after watching this little Irish gem.
Love Actually - Emma Thompson after she opens that Joni Mitchell CD, your heart breaks with hers.
Awakenings - Don't let De Niro go back to sleep!
Goodbye Mr. Chips - If only teachers were really like this.
Empire of the Sun - Christian Bale as a child actor just blows me away.
Brokeback Mountain - Beautiful love story, rips your heart out and serves it to ya on a skewer.
Erin Brockovich - When she visits the families at the end I just couldn't hold it in.
Captains Courageous - Just see it, please. If you are going to watch just one of these films make it this one!
It's on to you now!
