I’m not a person who cries easily, but I can be caught off guard. I’m not a person who watches romances, as I have absolutely no patience for their tropes but I can be moved by grand romantic gestures of faith and loyalty or awe in other films that I never expected to need tissues for.
Since this is a blog about celebration of Geek Culture, I’d like to give a shoutout to the creators who try their damnedest to move you, shake you, engage you, infuriate you or, fill you with awe.
And sometimes, just make you totally lose your shit.
The Lord of The Rings film: I think this is the only action movie, ever made, that had me bawling like a child by the end.
Toy Story 3: the whole darn thing. Started crying in the first fifteen minutes.
Wall-E: The Ending
Star Trek:The Wrath of Khan: You know the scene
The Dawn of the Dead remake
The Host: The Ending
The Fly: The Ending
Fright Night : The death of Evil Ed.
and of course:
The Shawshank Redemption: all of the last fifteen minutes.
Also a special honorable mention goes to the one TV show with the most consistent tearjerker episodes: Buffy the Vampire Slayer this show made me cry more often than any other show on television. It was just that good.
