10 on tuesday meme: 10 moives that make you cry

I generally do not cry easily at movies. So this is saying something.

10. It’s a Wonderful Life – almost every time
9. Cold Mountain – That movie takes you down. Then brings you back up high. Just to drop you hard and kick you in the gut.
8. When a Man Loves a Woman – “My wife is an alcoholic. Best person I ever met. She has 600 different smiles.” Oh Andy Garcia.
7. Mr. Holland’s Opus – The end with the symphony…
6. Beaches – “…and let your poor heart break a little…”
5. The Notebook – Nicolas Sparks knows how to get me right in the crier.
4. The Outsiders – “Let’s do it for Johnny!”
3. Steel Magnolias – “Here, punch Ouiser!”
2. ET – We saw this on a rare family outing to the movies when I was but a wee lass. And I cried my eyes out. It’s the first movie I can remember crying over.
1. The Color Purple – I cried my way through almost the entire movie. Especially when Shug walks into her dad’s church singing. And at the end, “Mama. Mama!”

I'm tagging Christy and Katie and my dad to complete this meme on their blogs.
So...Christy did this and she reminded me of several other movies that make me cry. And they are really good ones so I have to include them.
Dead Poet's Society - Oh young Robert Sean Leonard.
Life is Beautiful - I mean, how can you not? *sigh* *tear*
I Am Sam - "OK, remember when Paul McCarthney wrote the song "Michelle" and then he only wrote the first part, Annie said. And then he gave that part to John Lennon, and he wrote the part that said, "I love you, I love you, I love you." And Annie said that it wouldn't have been the same song without that... and that's why the whole world cried when the Beatles broke up on April 10, 1970."

I love the Color Purple and I cry every time I see it!!! I think it is one of the best movies ever!

Steel Magnolias, too, my other favorite line is "He's a real Southern gentleman, he takes the dishes out of the sink before he pees in it." :)

One of the saddest movies I know is The Elephant Man. It gets me bad.
