"Mr. & Mrs. Smith"

When I went to the cinema to watch it (with my girlfriend, Brad for her, Angelina for me) I tried to seat on those mobile chairs... when I finally did, my nuts got stucked on the side of that chair. Don't ask how I reached that position. I cried the whole movie.

I hardly ever cry at books etc. But I did cry for ages when the dog in 'The Lovely Bones' died and went up to heaven. The thought of it is making me misty now and it's months since I read the book.
The other day when I was watching the news and there was a story about the animals in New Orleans that had been abandoned and were stranded...that almost had me as well.
'The Wizard of Oz' when Toto jumps out of Miss Gulch's basket and jumps in through Dorothy's window.

I think I see a pattern starting to emerge here...

Well, it makes me think of Syd. That and the entire subject matter of the song.

Hell did that made me cry too. Realizing that Aerosmith had sold out their classic epic masterpiece to make some rap version was just heartbreaking...

...even sadded to hear 'Dream On' on a Cadillac commercial.

That almost made me cry too actually. What is with sampling, why can't people write their own damn music? Which reminds me, was Rise by Gabrielle (?) based on Knocking on Heaven's Door? Don't mean to hijack the topic or anything...

I no it's bloody stupid, but that scene in Star Wars Episode III when Anakin is turning, and the Jedi are being slaughetred... it almost got to much for me.

In the Untold Story, when they played the piano only music of Guide Me Home, with the odd picture of Freddie or over the top of the end of the story from Freddie's fashion assistant lady (I forget her name) and she tells about how he said "thanks for spending the afternoon with an old man" etc - that made me pretty choaked. There's something about that Guide Me Home piano version that gets me.

I'm very glad I'm not the only male who cried on Episode III. I only cried during the scene when Obi Wan Kenobi cuts off Anakin's limbs he lays there burning on the lava. When Obi Wan gave him that speech and he told him that he loved him like a brother, I just lost it. I remember being at the theater trying to hold those tears, but I couldn't.

I really don't cry a lot during movies/songs because I know half of it or more is usually fictional. And, since I know that, I usually have fun thinking of alternative endings or scenes. But anyhow:

Jack (that one with Robin Williams) made me cry..which is weird because I was VERY little when I first saw it in theaters.

And, I remember watching a documentary on the History Channel or something about two years ago on War Dogs..I cried during that. It was so sad to see how these dogs gave up their lives for their owners, and how the owners were still upset many years later remembering losing their close canine friends in such gory, painful ways. The old men who were interviewed on the show even started to cry when they talked about their furry partners. Those dogs were definately TRUE heroes. And, so were the troops who risked their lives (obviously).

Regarding Episode III...

...basically I'd accidentally read a post on a Star Wars site mean as a warning for parents taking their kids to see it, and I luckily only caught a couple of warning (Dooku's decapitation, Mace Windu getting killed etc) but the slaughtering of the Jedi's completely COMPLETELY wasn't something I was especting.

Like I say, it almost got too much.

For the common Star Wars geek it was well known that there was going to be a Jedi genocide, but what I wasn't particularly expecting was showing dead Younglings (kids in training to become Jedis).

I think it would have been too much if Lucas actually showed Anakin killing them, but he managed to cut the scene at the right moment. It was a very strong scene indeed, but despite of all that, I think it made the film better by reflecting its dark nature. Lucas was right by telling parents to leave the youngest ones at home this time.
