I'm bored so I'll ask this :thumbsup:

What book, show, or movie made you tear up? Doesn't have to be just extremely sad stuff, but it can be from being so heartwarming that you start to tear up....or cried...either way, same difference.

I read the book and watched the film: A man called Horse

I haven't read the book yet but the movie was a tearjerker in many parts: Slumdog Millionaire

I watch this over and over: Shawshank Redemption

Gone with the Wind

The Astronaut Farmer

Color Purple: I always cry at the end :thumbsup:

I am currently reading 'Noone Listened' by Isobel and Alex Kerr and that is emotionally gripping, also very sad.

Pffffft....I forgot to add at the title about games and music as well for anyone who prefers to list a game or music track as well....stupid me :thumbsup:

Maybe I should mention one that I had a tearjerker on.

Clannad. An anime based off of a visual novel made by Key. Some parts of that show were so heartwarming that I broke out into tears (.....doesn't help that one of the tracks in that anime makes the tearjerkiness more of a tearjerker). I haven't seen Clannad: After Story yet, but from what I heard, it's very depressing (probably going to make the fountains go on full).

"Schindler's List". I was fortunate enough to see it when it premiered here locally. There was not a dry eye in the house. It was the most intense experience of my life.

Yep this one is so heart rending I couldn't watch it all the way through the first time.


Also the Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom which is a movie and a book that just make me do more than 'tear up'

Music that makes me cry is: Amazing Grace by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (a really haunting version)

You'll Never Walk Alone (reminds me of my dad who is now deceased)

A song that always makes me emotional in a happy way is Buttercup by the Foundations ( don't laugh!) as it reminds me of happy times.

I'm not fifty, and I know the movie (....actually, it could be a colored remake or something....unless Old Yellar has always been in color....I don't know).

Music that makes me tear up....

Also from the Clannad series: "The Place Where Wishes Come True". By itself, it's just a really, really cutesy music box tune. Associated with the scenes that they go with, it'll either make the scene that much more heartwarming or that much more of a tearjerker (or both).

....okay, fine, Clannad is actually one of the only things that was a tearjerker to me at the time (nowadays, probably more).

Books:

Flowers for Algernon (I read the shorter version in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction -- it was, IMHO, more effective than the longer novel)

Where the Red Fern Grows (Along the same lines as Old Yeller)

The last chapter in Questioning the Millennium, by Stephen Jay Gould.

As for a book that had me in tears for at least an hour after I was finished with it, well that award goes to "All Quiet on the Western Front".

Hello everyone.

On a lighter note

The film that makes tears roll down my cheeks every Christmas as I'm all curled up on the settee still wearing my pyjamas at four o'clock in the afternoon is
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
I laugh my little socks off at this film every year without fail.

One day, along time ago, in a land far far away, there lived a girl who did not nag moan or whinge.
But it was just one day and a very long time ago.

Oh I'm a big wuss, loads of things make me cry :thumbsup: The book that made me cry the most was probably Black Beauty. I wasn't that old when I read it either :flowers: But most sad films make me cry.
