Have I mentioned that I’m a crier? Maybe? Perhaps? Am I crying now? Who knows?
But the fact is, I’m a crier.
I didn’t use to be and I’m not quite sure when the shift happened but now I can cry at the drop of a hat. Seriously, I’m more emotional than I know what to do with it sometimes.
I mean when I was a kid I never cried. Maybe if I got hurt I cried, but watching a movie? Nothing. Seriously I watched The Lion King without shedding a tear (Matt still doesn’t believe this about me) and I made it through Bambi without sobbing. I’m not sure if it was because they were cartoons or because I hadn’t really matured or anything but those things breezed right over me.
These days I’m pretty sure anything could make me cry. And almost any movie can bring me to tears. It’s like the world knows I have to get some tears out to function on a daily basis.
However, last night it occurred to me the top movies to clear out my tear ducts. These are the movies that I probably should have tissue nearby or just admit defeat.
And the list goes something like this:
P.S. I Love You. Oh sweet actual mercy. This movie. Maybe it’s because I think I’d be so much like Holly if Matt died or just the fact that it is SO SAD. I don’t know. But I sob watching this movie. And yet I continue to watch it. Once I even started watching it and had to pause it, watch another movie and then come back to it. I mean, the sadness.
The Blind Side. Happy tears like no other in this movie. And just emotional tears. But when Michael gets his own bed and his room, I lose it. Every. Single. Time.
Titanic. No, it’s not the end that makes me cry. I cry every single freaking time when Rose is in a lifeboat looking up at Jack and then jumps back on the ship. And just. Ah. I’m getting teary now as I type this!
The Holiday. Even more happy tears. I LOVE this movie. So much. And every scene with Kate Winslet and Jack Black makes my heart flutter. And Cameron Diaz and Jude Law are just, adorable. And the end when everyone gets together and just, ah. Tears of happiness are inevitably streaming down my face.
Love Actually. More happy tears. All of the happy tears. When Samuel runs through the airport and Jamie is simultaneously in pursuit of Aurelia through Spain, then yeah, I’ve got a waterfall of tears happening over here. It’s just the happiest movie and I can’t wait for Christmastime so I can watch it more times than is deemed normal.
There’s so many more movies and even some TV show episodes (hello Grey’s Anatomy, stop making me get so emotional) that make me cry but these are the top. So if we ever watch any of these together, don’t judge. Or I can just hand you a tissue and we can cry it out together okay?
So tell me, what movies make you cry? Do we share any? Did you cry when you watched The Lion King?
happy weekend!Posted in Me Things
