There’s a scene in this movie that always brings on the waterworks, wonder if you can guess what it is.

Suffice it to say survival gear included a box of Kleenex, lubricated eye drops to prevent my optics from becoming rusty and duct tape to hold myself together during this emotional roller coaster masterpiece.

Right now a few come to mind, but I’ve cried with a lot of movies, from teared up to bawling my eyes out, and then there’s those cried with elation and joy…can’t wait to remember more of them…but to start:
Rosewood (1997) (Bawled my eyes out!)
American History X (One of my very favorite movies - hang in there with it, the first half can be very hard to watch and you might ask yourself why would I be watching this? Trust me, it’s an amazing story and brilliant acting.)
Marley and Me (2008)
The Blind Side (2009)
Living with the Dead (2002)
And, I’ve cried watching What Dream May Come, too. Great movie.
Coincidentally or more like synchronistically, I just came across a FB post my son tagged me on to an interesting article
“Why Crying During Movies Actually Means You’re Mentally Tough”
Okay I got choked up, teared up, in just the opening before the title sequence of this week’s episode “Scars” (S2E14) of TWD. Powerful stuff, particularly being a big fan of Rick, Andrew Lincoln’s character. <3 Had to pause it just to take it in (so glad I can “pause” it here on PW!) Now, ready to delve back in to the rest of the episode! I really FEEL a well told story, deeply. So glad for PW, where I get a lot of the feeeeels.
Spirited away and Shawshank Redemption
Lilo and Stitch (“I’m Lost!”) . Up (those first 8 minutes, I mean…). Toy Story (all of them so far). Wall-E. Lion King. Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire ( NO, NOT CEDRIC!). Schindler’s List made me ugly cry so hard a total stranger asked if I was going to be alright. So many movies have made me cry. I sometimes watch movies and t.v. shows BECAUSE they make me cry. But it’s the unexpected cries that I really remember I.E?..Gaurdians of the Galaxy 2 (“I’m Mary Poppins, Y’all!”)
Don’t know the last time i cried irl but my wife always makes fun of me tearing up during espn documentries, one where a football team had a waterboy with a mental handicap and the seniors would pick him up for practice and games, things like that. Anyway off hand the movie that comes to mind was Armageddon, they’re more and ill repost when they come to mind.
Likewise, Jhigh03 :
After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, N.A.S.A. recruits a misfit team of deep core drillers to save the planet.
These Movies are recommended by Marlboro_Man :
