Never cried at the movies. That's not to say I'm too macho and incapable, it's just a lot of scenes in movies people consider to be tearjerkers come of as emotionally manufactured to me. Like it was written into the story just to evoke a soppy reaction from the viewers rather than it being a staple event in the movie for plot purposes. I know, no duh, but when it's too cheesy it disrupts my suspension of disbelief and particularly so if the characters don't have sufficient time on screen for you to feel for them. I only get emotional when the characters are portrayed well enough and they have good chemistry. I did remember seriously coming close at the end of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 when
. The actors had amazing chemistry and I completely bought their relationship which I suppose was genuine considering they were dating IRL at the time.

Movies don't make me cry. Yes some are sad or have sad bits in them that I can empathise with that's as far as it gets. I've also never seen anyone cry at a cinema. I've seen them laugh, boo, yawn or even sleeping with their mouths open but no shed tears.

I always tear up when I watch the musical "Carousel" or the movie "The Passion of the Christ".

I know that a lot of people cried when they watched "Love Story"

In a theater no, but a little choked up yes. Though during Christmas time several years ago I was slipping through tv channels and ended up watching The Christmas Shoes on Lifetime. I'll admit I cried, but the song always kind of makes me teary eyed.

It is rare now to actually cry during a movie, but back in the day when movies were made to move people, here are some that brought me to tears.

As someone said before, the opening to UP. Dammit disney, there isn't even anyone talking! but it's so sweet and sad that I had to, was not expecting it, and it just goes to show what the power of writing can result in.

King Arthur, it was a movie with Clive Owen and Kira knightly, and it was a twist on the original tale of King, to this day it is still one of my all time favorite movies. It was when king Arthur took the last stand against the Saxon army as he tells his remaining knights to flea to safety and finally take their freedom, and as the Knights all walk out all but one draws his sword and directs it to king Arthur who stood alone baring the weight of his decision and let's out a battle cry in his name, powerful, that whole movie had some really powerful moments, back when people actually gave a shit about acting, it brings tears to my eyes when they can envision such a powerful moment.

And another one was Lord of the rings - return of the king. The ending literally made me cry for like 2 minutes straight, it was emotional man. The last movie of the biggest story in my lifetime was coming to an end, just the journey leading up to that moment. Going to see it with family, watching them all together, crying in front of them like nobody's business; the standing ovation people gave after it was finished. Call that weak, no fuck off, that was beautiful and I accept it.

And last but not least V for vendetta, and to this day I will still cry to this very scene, it was such a masterpiece. When Evey was taken captive and placed in a cell, put through torture until she gave in, but still she stayed strong. She found a letter that kept her strong, every time she came back to her cell she would read it, staying strong she had hope.

I want everyone to watch this scene, and if you do not cry, you have no idea what true story telling and beauty really is. I want you to really watch it, I want you to really feel for once in your life what it really means to be human.

You have heard these sayings, "Grow up don't cry" "act like a man" "weak"?
So here is my question will you admit you cry at the movies? and next part what movies made you cry?

The type of movies that would make me cry, I watch at home.

Not because I worry about crying in the theater, but because I prefer to watch that type of movie while wrapped up in a blanket on the couch.
