  • movies that choke you up

    Embarrassed to admit this but

    "Her" with Joaquin Phoenix, when Samantha bails.

    "Creation" with Paul Bettany, when Annie insists on hearing the Jenny death story then dies.

    It really freaks me out that movies can elicit such a powerful emotion.

    Confession time....

    Ink, which is probably one of my favorite movies anyway. Also Interstellar.
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

      I know it's a popular movie to hate and widely seen as super cheesy... but Crash. The bullet scene with the kid especially.

            I know, that poor iceberg was just sitting there minding its own business.

              Catching Fire. Really. Sometimes Les Misérables.

                Apollo 13

                When the capsule is finally spotted in the sky ready for splashdown after a harrowing and dangerous mission.

                      Transformers: The Movie (1986). Every time I watch Optimus die.

                        You should watch "The Goldbergs" there is an episode that has quite a bit about that movie in it. Now I want to see that movie.

                          I am a psychopath so I have no emotions. What was your address again?

                            My Dad used to weep at the drop of a hat. He would tear up when somebody won big on Price is Right.

                            I loved that about him.

                            When my kids were little and Mom and Dad came for a visit near Dad's birthday, the kids urged me to make a Care Bear birthday cake for him. You could rent the shaped pans from the local craft store, so I got one and baked it, then asked them which Care Bear I should do.

                            The answer was Tenderheart Bear.

                            When we presented the cake to Dad, he looked a bit bewildered, but then the kids explained to him.

                            Dad wept a little. And then enjoyed cake.

                            My whole point is, never be afraid of emotion over movies and stuff. It's a good thing.

                            Oh, and, Braveheart.

                              OK. I admit I do have emotions after all. I cry whenever you hit me with the Pin®
