    20 movies that make men cry...Some yes some no...some...what were they thinking?


    1.Brian's Song (sad film)
    2.Rudy (Die Rudy Die--only if the bile I felt in my stomach as it wanted to turn over could be counted as tears-Notre Dame can suck it)
    3. Saving Private Ryan (no tears, maybe a slight welling of the ducts)
    4. One Flew over (no-great film)
    5. The Natural (not really--replace this with Field of Dreams if you need a baseball flick)
    6. Shawshank Redemption (uplifting, no tears)
    7. Schindler's List (balled)
    8. Old Yeller (Bambi over Old Yeller)
    9. Pride of the Yankees (hate the yankees enough to not care about Gehrig's problem in the movie)
    10. Terms of Endearment (not if someone poked me in the eye with a dagger)
    11. Iron Giant (nope)
    12. Philadelphia (A mist if anything)
    13. Big Fish (No Idea)
    14. Million Dollar Baby (nope-Aviator was a better film that year)
    15. Life is Beautiful (Meh.)
    16. Love Actually (Who...what? Never saw it)
    17. Rocky (Nope)
    18. The Pianist (This and Schindler's whoa...tough to hold them back)
    19. Mystic River (just a good haunting film, no tears)
    20. To Kill a Mockingbird (no tears-great film)

    Heard this on sportstalk out of Detroit this morning...it generated some good thoughts.

    Braveheart when his wife appears in the audience as he is about to be killed...that one is tough for me.--should be on the list.

    Seriously for a moment, I always found the moment where Jake Lamota pounds the walls of his prison cell to be very moving, also the end of China Town is very said.

    /agree about The Pianist.

    If any man ever cried while watching this movie, it's only because there was a playoff game on and his wife / GF made him watch this instead.

    I haven't seen The Pianist, but I did see The Piano. Even thinking of an overweight Harvey Keitel nude, brings tears to my eyes.

    The Pianist should be used by the CIA as a torture device. Slowest, most painful movie ever.

    No one is as bad as the worst thing they have done & no one is as good as the best thing they have done.........think of that when you feel like you understand someone.

    Antonio_B's abbreviated list:

    1) Il Postino
    2) Cinema Paradiso
    3) The Pianist (when Adrian Brody sits down at the Piano and plays, damn that was powerful)
    18) Dances with Wolves
    19) Field of Dreams
    20) Baraka (it's a weird choice for sure, but the cinematography is so beautiful, it seriously brought tears to my eyes)
    hang out in Podium Girls - the desperation there is way funny - terry b
    I don't get either but that is irrelevant to the comedic impact and it's resulting effect on the male centric hegemony contained therein... - svendo
    when I was a n00b there were no message boards to clutter up with trolling posts. I had to do it the hard way....standing at the mall making fun of people loudly - Platy

    I <3 Baraka. I rented it a long time ago based on a review in a magazine. It was awesome at home on my then crappy AV system. I bought it on DVD and it's awesome x 3 on my now nice system.

    One of the live music clubs in Dallas has a giant projection screen in front of the stage. They lower it and play movies between sets. One night they played Baraka. The entire crowd was mesmerized. I've never heard so many drunks be so quiet for so long.

    The only one I can think of, off the top of my head, is the one scene in "The Natural" where the Roy Hobbs character is in a hitting slump, and his old girlfriend from 18 years ago, comes to the game and stands, while everybody else in the park is ready to give up hope in Hobbs.
    If your opinion differs from mine, ..........Too bad.

    Some of those films are just sappy. "Pride of the Yankees?" Give me a break. I'm surprised they didn't throw in "Knute Rockne, All American." I'm surprised it wasn't #1.

    Ferris Buler's(SP?) Day Off made me cry. That Ferrari going over the cliff is just too much.

    Of that list I know two for sure that did me in - Saving Private Ryan and The Pianist. Maybe a couple of others, but I can't remember.

    I'll add to the list a few....

    Blood Diamond -- touched that father's emotional center that resides within me

    La Dolce Vita - the realization of who we are can be a moment of sweet sadness
    Beam me up, baby.
