When our boys turn it on against the Hun from 4-0 down in the second half its enough to stir the heart of every Englishman (despite the fact that that its mostly Pele and Ardiles doing the tormenting - and Sly making the crucial penalty save).
My mum is the world's biggest fan of this movie and growing up as a boy I was indoctrinated in every part of the film. To this day the scene near the end when the family are singing in the concert and the father loses his voice gets me every time. Pure Hollywood I know, but I'm a sucker for this and start bawling like a little girl every time! :((
Some do. I was sad for Stallone when he lost Sarah at the beginning of Cliffhanger ;)
I would never spoil such a lovely film.
I think Toy Story 3 will always get me. I like so many that get emotional over the film were born in the early 90s and grew up with the films. It is even more special to me. Toy Story was the first film I saw, and right in the theaters at the age of five. Growing up I had a Woody and Buzz, and had so many adventures with them just like Andy. Now I will soon be graduating and heading to college, like Andy. The reality the film presents in my life is striking, and the series and wonderful characters will always be an important part of my life.
I have to admit, on the night it was released, I was almost offended by how young the crowd was. I know, I know...it's not their fault. They just wanted to see a good animated movie. However, it meant so much more to me than it ever could have to them. To literally grow up alongside Andy and have my own Woody and Buzz action figures meant the movie was a lot more than just entertainment to me. It was the end of an era. I'm ashamed to say I only own the first movie (VHS). One day, I'll have to spend the extra money to get them all on Blu-ray because they truly have played a pivotal role in my life.
Same here, in every way. Just one of the many instances where the true power of film is seen. And what a truly powerful thing it is to be moved emotionally by a film.
I find it sad in Rocky 3, when he's lost the fight with Lang and he goes to the back and tells the dying Mickey that the fight ended in a KO, Mickey assumes Rocky won and dies happy.
What will go down as one of the greatest theater experiences I will ever have is during the midnight release of The Dark Knight Rises. I went with two good friends, one of which is just as batty for Batman as I happen to be. The theater near us was doing a Nolan film marathon that showed Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises back to back to back, all leading up to midnight. Best $25 dollars I have ever spent. The immense excitement kept growing inside me, which made the emotions more and more palpable. I got through the origin with joy, got moved by the perfect moral dichotomy between Batman and the Joker next, and finally reached TDKR. And boy, what an experience. Through the shocking awes, the laughter, and of course the tears I realized true joy. Joy at a journey I got to see happen on screen over years past, but now all in eight hours, and it truly overwhelmed me more than I ever have been before. Simply being in that theater on its immediate release, knowing I was apart of cinematic history and witnessing the greatest comic book films of my time was a gift unto itself. And being lucky enough to see it while those in Colorado weren't so lucky put everything into perspective for me. Nolan exemplified the perfect image of Batman in his films. A man who gave himself completely to his duty. A man who had two personas, Bruce Wayne now the mask he had to wear to protect his true identity as Batman. A hero who never gave in to the demands of evil, and always stood against the crime that took his parents' lives. Someone who never resorted to murder to serve his cause, and though he faltered, though he lost some motivation and spirit, he was able to save Gotham and rise as the symbol they needed, that they deserved. As the final shot panned across the screen and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES flashed upon the screen, I was overtaken by the cheers and claps that rang across the room. It is times like these that I realize why I love films so much, no matter the genre. They bring people from all over together for one beautiful experience, whether it is for pure thrills, suspense, or emotional provocation. TDKR gave me all that and more, and with his final film Nolan has changed my opinion of Batman forever, and made me love him all the more.
And as the sun, that had been too afraid to show its face in this city, started to turn the black into grey, I smiled. Not out of happiness. But because I knew... that one day, I wouldn't have to do this anymore. One day, I could stop fighting. Because one day... I would win. One day, there will be no pain, no loss, no crime. Because of me, because I fight. For you. One day, I will win.
If I go into details I will drop tears on my keyboard.
But the one film that honestly makes me cry like a child every time I see it is 'Man on Fire.' I'm sure you know what scene(s) I'm talking about if you've seen the film:
But the one part that gets me the absolute most is the end. Creasy, weathered and shot, stops in the middle of the bridge to see the car door that houses Pita open. She steps out, has the blindfold removed, and as soon as she sees him, she starts to cry, scream his name, and run to him. The score picks up and ends immediately as they embrace. Gets me every single time.
There are others that are far too sad but they are not fun to recall - Holocaust films for example
It's a Wonderful Life
...and many many more.
Yes, I am very emotional guy. I even cried few times watching X Factor USA. Not because of bad performance, but for the reason that some performers managed to touch me emotionally...and had a beautiful singing voice too.
The theater was sold out. At the end of the movie, everybody stood there for at least 5 full minutes, silently reflecting about what they had witness. Intense moment to say the least.
It's A Wonderful Life always gets me but it's a different type of emotion to the above. Yes it has a very emotional and happy ending, but boy does the film put the viewer through the ringer to get there! It has some incredibly dark moments. The acting from James Stewart in the bar as he prays for a miracle is incredibly powerful.
Toy Story 3 The moment those toys join hands as they head for almost certain doom just overwhelmed me. Credit to the makers for you care so much about a bunch of Pixels.
Up The moment the old guy finds the note from his long deceased wife in the scrapbook just tears me up every time!
First Blood Odd choice but Stallone's breaking down at the end and the emotion that pours out of him really gets to me.
Bride of Frankenstein when Karloff meets the blind man, the prayer and Karloff's tears are genuinely touching.
Hawks- several scenes between Timothy Dalton and Anthony Edwards are moving.
Fellowship of the Ring (Boromir)
Disney's Robin Hood
