Which movies always make you cry? I never used to cry at films when I was younger but as I have got older I have found myself getting more emotionally involved in what I am watching and can start crying at the very sad moments. The scene in Titanic where the old couple lay in bed together cuddling waiting to die as the water floods in always gets me. Also the scene in Armageddon when Bruce Willis is saying goodbye to his daughter because he is staying behind on the meteor to save earth. sniff sniff. How about you which movie is guaranteed to get you reaching for the tissues?

Hi Carmelbg, this is an old movie based on a true story, Brian's Song. It's about a football player named Brian Piccolo, who finds out that he has terminal cancer and Gale Sayers, another football player that helps him through his struggles. It was a box of tissues worth of tears. The actors that portrayed them, James Caan (one of my favorites) and Billy Dee Williams, were awesome. Other ones are Terms of Endearment and Steel Magnolias were big tearjerkers. I thought Titantic and Armageddon scenes you described were definite cry scenes as well. I like watching these tearjerk movies every so often, it provides a release of emotions that I don't always get in daily life.

I agree having a good cry really releases a lot of tension and you can feel better after.

I don't normally cry during movies, but some movies bring me close. One movie that brought me close to tears was Casualties of War, another was The Lion King. I can't really think that many movies that got me emotional but there you have it.

I've watched the musical 'Carousel' loads of times, but it always makes me cry several times during the film, especially when they sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone.' more recent film that had me in tears was 'Million Dollar Baby,' and 'The Glenn Miller Story' also sets off the tear ducts.

I don't cry while watching movies but some can make my eyes a little wet. The ending of Terminator 2 for example or Lord of the Rings is pretty emotional.
