Hmmm I don't usually cry at acts of nature, unless you count being kicked in the nuts by crazed German girl an act of nature.
But I did come close to tears recently when I saw garden gnome Yoda spinning furiously around the screen battling Christopher Lee, it was hysterical, thanks George.
When I saw A Beautiful Mind (about six months ago).
I could probably count, on one hand, the films that have made me cry:
Terms of Endearment
The Green Mile
E.T. (when I was a kid )
Well, O.K., maybe I need two hands .
BTW, many "real life" experiences have brought me to tears (sadness and joy). I just thought it would be cool to mention some films.
I cried on Sept 11. Being only 25 I never had to deal with that much emotion before. Thinking of all those people that went to work and never came home. Hearing their last phone calls home to their loved ones. Not knowing what was going to happen next. And how brave people can be. It still upsets me today.
Ever since I was a little child, I've owned this beautiful cedar chest. When I was a toddler, it was my toybox. As I grew older, I stored my most valuable possessions in it. On a whim, my lifelong best friend (then 9 years old, now deceased) scratched his initials on it.
When I went to college and had my first apartment, it was my coffee table and the place where I stored my textbooks. When I moved to a house, I decided to refinish it. It came out great! Not being known as a particular handy fellow, I was so proud of myself!
