    Just finished watching "Remember Me" and I can honestly say without any reservation, the end had me in tears.

    So what's the most recent film you watched that's had you curled up pretending you have something stuck in your eye, and..

    Your all time tear-jerker that pretty much gets you every time.



    For me my all time stock-in-kleenex-just-went-up films are tied between: Titanic, Armageddon and Seven pounds

    Please note: If you're going to be one of those delightfully twuntish people that belittle others for having human emotions, just don't bother posting. You Vulcan

    Seven Pounds gets me good as well dude... what a story. That'd be my all time tear-jerker. My Sister's Keeper had pretty much the same effect. Others like Million Dollar Baby and Gone Baby Gone got me going a little bit in places too, as did Gran Torino.

    The one that I saw recently was 500 days of Summer. Not a tearjerker like Seven Pounds, but it struck a chord and got me thinking about a lot of stuff.

    Wept like a baby.

    I cried in Saving Private Ryan too. Started when Jackson gets taken out, stopped basically when the movie was nearly over.

    Return of the Jedi.

    All those poor Ewoks. Sniff. ;)

    No Really - I'm not a Vulcan, Captain.

    [Edit] - Actually, I get a little choked up at the end of Stardust...

    Marley and Me - FFS. Movie directors should know that they can kill people, but don't F*** with a man and his dog.

    Vanilla Sky
    Click (f*** you, Adam Sandler... you got KB at home and FFWD your way through it? You're an idiot. You should just sit and appreciate)
    In general any movie where someone has everything and throws it all away.

    Iron Man 2 had me weeping like a baby, but it was out of frustration because as Andy once said "i want one"

    Anyway, Armageddon gets me.

    No real all time tear jerker.

    Oops, my mistake! Cheers. Yeah it's an awesome story.

    I'm adding "Moon" to my list, and I have to say Sunshine got me all emotional in places too.

    *batteries not included

    When the baby robots aren't working. I wouldn't say it makes me cry, but it is a sad moment.

    I cried like an idiot watching Where the Wild Things Are. Don't know why, it just... resonated.

    Do you guys actually full-on cry during these films, or just well up a little?

    Honestly, I've never actually once properly cried because of a movie. Not trying to sound 'macho' but it's also not something I've even thought other guys do.

    TBH I dislike most films that exist only to make people cry, because they come across as patronising and cheap - such as Seven Pounds, Notebook, Remember Me etc.

    Films that do manage to make me emotional are usually ones that deal with real relationships in a (somewhat) realistic way. Films like Dan in Real Life, Adventureland and Up in the Air.

    Because they don't have clichéd dramatic deaths, ridiculous feats of heroism or perfect characters is why they make me emotional, they're relatable.
