Thelma and Louise
Where the Red Fern Grows
Tree of Life
I made the giant mistake of watching Marley & Me in the theatre. I thought it would be a nice, sweet movie, but I was sobbing. Like hysterical sobbing. And so was everyone around me. Grown men were crying their eyes out. It just got worse and worse - you think "okay, this is as bad as it's going to get" but you're wrong, then you think "there's no way they're going to show THAT" but then they do. When the lights came on in the theatre everyone's face was soaked and women had black streaks all over their cheeks. I will never, ever watch it again unless I am suicidal and need that one last bit of inspiration.
I just cant do animal movies. I have not seen Warhorse, Marley and Me, and even though I own Black Beauty, I dont watch it. I cry too much. I am also not a pretty sniffler, I am a body racking sob fest. Movies have been turned off in my presence because of this.
Hotel Rwanda & Sarah's Key.....no specific scene for Hotel Rwanda. Sarah's Key the scene where they are in the train station and the guy commits suicide, and the scene where she goes back to find her brother. I don't cry easily in movies, but those two get me every time. Invictus I get emotional during the scene when the team goes and teaches the township kids rugby. I think that is because it is SO realistic - the kids all come out screaming "Chest-a chest-a chest-a" and it sounds so much like "teach-a teach-a teach-a" which is what they all used to do when our van pulled up at school/the nurseries. It also brings back memories of us teaching them rugby - getting them to pass BACKWARDS is so hard! They just don't get the point, lol!

Marley and me was the first movie that came to mind, I made the colossal mistake of watching it on a PLANE to/from (I don't remember which) France, and I was by myself. Stuck on a plane where you know no one and you are the crazy American crying hysterically.
Also, The Notebook made my sob uncontrollably, though I was thankfully in the privacy of my own home when I watched that.
Basically any movie that involves animals going "the extra mile" for humans:
The Black Stallion
Wild hearts can't be broken
The man from snowy river (Especially the 2nd one where the buckskin dies, right through my heart)
And, has anyone here seen "Hatchi: a dogs tale"? Only watch if you have lots of tissues around, I actually liked Richard gere in that movie.
Between my husband and me, I thought we were going to flood the house during Hachi.
I sobbed while watching True Grit (the new one) during the scene where they are galloping for help for the young girl, and the horse starts to get tired and the old man stabs him on the flank to get him going. Then cue the hysterical ugly cry when they shoot the horse when he can't run any further.
The Great Escape, when the Nazi's shoot the 52 Allied officers: true event and the end of Braveheart when they torture and disembowel Wallace, Out of Africa, the end of The Great Waldo Pepper and The Last Castle (I can't stand it when they kill Robert Redford's characters).
War Horse. Took me over 2 years to get up the nerve to watch it, and it didn't disappoint. Way, WAY too freakin' realistic for me, because I've read tons of the reality of horses in those times--and I know what barbed wire REALLY does. Just absolutely excruciatingly sad to watch; and I'm a Cavalry buff!
