On movies that make me cry

Are there any movies that make you cry? Maybe not every time, but the first time you saw it?

Oh, hell yes. Shamelessly. When it comes to movies, I am a crying crier who cries. Off the top of my head, and in no particular order, here’s a list of the ones that fuckin’ got me:

Steel Magnolias
Searching for Sugar Man
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
Good Will Hunting
Dead Poets Society
American Beauty
Lars and the Real Girl
Donnie Darko
Igby Goes Down
Little Miss Sunshine
Forrest Motherfucking Gump (I was too young to know any better.)
Cast Away (Damn you, Wilson.)
Road to Perdition (Damn you, Tom Hanks.)
Cloud Atlas (Seriously, Tom Hanks. Quit it.)
Warrior (Holy shit, Tom Hardy.)
Cinema Paradiso
Boogie Nights
Marley and Me (Duh)
Requiem for a Dream
The series finale of Six Feet Under (I know it’s not a movie, but anyone who saw it knows exactly what I’m talking about.)
Philomena (Might as well make this a running list.)
