5 Neat Movies That Have Made Me Cry

I am someone who tries not to cry when watching movies. There are a few that almost got it out of me, (I made it out of Toy Story 4 and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World without shedding tears) but there are a few movies that pushed the stubborn water out of my eyes, and today we will talk about some of them!

Also, spoiler alert for all these movies!

Notice today’s title. It says, “5 Neat Movies That Have made Me Cry.” So, today I am sharing 5 movies I would recommend, not 5 movies that ripped my heart out and I wish I never watched. If that was the case, this list would be filled with endless “And the Dog Died” movies (because I just loathe those to my core). I’m kidding, but I still really dislike those movies. 

Goodbye Christopher Robin:

This movie explores the backstory behind the Winnie the Pooh books. Even though this film made me almost wish Winnie the Pooh had never been created because of the unfortunate things that had gone on in the life of the movie’s Billie Moon, it also delivered a message about what happens when you don’t focus on the important things in life. Before you know it, they’ll be gone, and it’s your fault you missed them.

This movie didn’t have an ultra happy ending, and I will never look on A.A. Milne the same way again, but the movie did have a very sweet middle. It was bittersweet as Billie and his father started with a rocky relationship, grew closer together, and then drifted back apart. At first, I thought it ruined my childhood, but it actually makes a very real statement. So yes, I cried.

The Hunger Games:

The Hunger Games was no game (hehe sorry). All four movies explored themes of human worth, but the first one, in particular, made me cry. The Hunger Games, of course, pit children against each other to fight to the death. When Rue, an innocent victim of the cruel games died… it hurt.

Katniss’ reaction was even worse since Rue had become like a little sister to her. Katniss ended up decorating around Rue’s body with wildflowers to show the game makers their own cruelty. This is the scene that made me cry.

Avengers Endgame:

Avengers Endgame was the build-up and conclusion of many years of Marvel movies. It brought closure to most of the main avengers. My favorite conclusion was that of Tony Stark’s. You can read more about why I loved his character arc: HERE.

I even had Iron Man’s death spoiled for me, yet I was still weeping by the time of his death, especially during his funeral. I was so thrilled with how far this originally self-important character had come. My brother, who usually walks out of movies without shedding a single tear, actually cried for this scene.

Up:

Up is pretty powerful. It has the potential to make you cry, not just the first time you see it, but over and over again.  This is because of it’s beginning montage of a sweet marriage that ends with the death of Carl’s wife Ellie.

Because of this sweet beginning, no one in the audience dislikes Carl, despite him being a grumpy old man. The montage is masterfully animated to display the emotions it wants to evoke. I also want to mention the end when Carl gives Russel the “Ellie Badge” which harkens all the way back to the beginning and shows the change Carl’s character went through. This movie is so sweet!

The Passion of Christ:

If you haven’t seen this movie, you don’t know what crying is. This movie is the only R-rated film I have ever seen. That R-rating is for violence. One night, my sister and I watched it with our Mom and Dad, and no matter how hard I tried, I could not stop the tears from flowing. That’s because this movie tries to accurately show Jesus’ death, and it. is. brutal. Jesus gets whipped and mocked terribly on screen.

If there is ever a movie to watch that made you feel what Jesus went through, it’s this one. It was made by a Catholic director so there is some over-attention on Mary, and the way Satan was depicted is slightly scary. Also, you have to watch it with subtitles because it was filmed in the original language! Anyway, my sister woke up the next morning with puffy eyes, because she had been crying for most of the movie the night before.

  1. I have seen none of these movies apart from Endgame! oh dear, I really need to see the rest of these. Oh boy, Endgame was soooo hard to watch! I think it’s the most emotional I’ve been during a movie *bursts out with a flood of tears*. I think the 1st movie I saw that made me cry was Gods and Generals, it’s a movie based around the Civil War. I was verrry young and I wasn’t really used to watching movies at the time. Have you seen The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas? It’s a movie based around World War 2. I watched it last week, it was good but very sad.

    1. Wow! Yes! These movies are great! Endgame WAS hard to watch. It was one of my most emotional movie watchings as well, besides The Passion of Christ (but that movie is in a league of its own). Neat!!! I actually haven’t seen that movie! It sounds really cool though. 😀

      1. I have actually never cried at a movie because I’m an emotionless robot from another dimension. XD.
        Okay, still haven’t seen Endgame so I skipped that part. I’ve read The Hunger Games books—should I watch the movies? Yes, poor Rue. That was sad.
        There was maybe two times when I was watching Battlestar Galactica that I was really sad. Okay, the entire Gina storyline was so sad (and I have never hated a person or fictional character as much as I HATED Admiral Cain). I think the other one was callec The Farm and I honestly don’t remember that episode very well. Just that it was sad.

      2. HAHA! No worries, I don’t cry during a lot of movies that my family does. XD
        Okay good. Yes! I think the Hunger Games movies are a really cool watch.
        I’m like that too sometimes, where things make me really sad but don’t bring me to tears.
        Sounds neat!

  2. I know. There was one movie where literally every other family member of mine was crying and I wasn’t. I was still sad but I didn’t cry.
    I’ll have to check out those movies. I’ve heard the actress who plays Katniss was really good in those movies.
    Same! Actually now that I think about it A LOT of Battlestar Galactica episodes were sad or brutal or both. Still my favorite show.

      1. Oh, I’m pretty sure she played Mystique as a young adult in the X-Men movies and she was good in those.
        Absolutely. Also comedy shows are great. I’m a bit partial to action/comedy/dramas. There are actually a surprising amount of those.

  3. I actually don’t cry at a lot of movies. Like Up? I was totally fine. However, Endgame made my cry, and oddly enough, I cried the SECOND time I watched GOTG 2, and Inside Out. Maybe because I knew what was about to happen? I don’t know. I also cried at season 3 episodes 13, and 22. And I don’t think I cried as hard as I did at season 5, episode 22 in a looong time.
    Also, on a happier note, I nominated you at BABF!

    1. Wow, girl! Inside Out made me cry too. Also, I totally understand that sometimes a movie doesn’t make us cry during the first viewing… yet does sometimes during a different viewing. It all depends on what state of mind we are in.
      Thank you for the nomination!

  4. I don’t always cry during movies, but when I do, I hope no one is looking in my direction XD I’ve only cried during two movies, The Lego Ninjago Movie (after I had seen it a million times XD it was during all that had happened with my Grandfather and my sister so I was barely holding it together and my mom could tell. So she put on the Ninjago Movie to try and cheer me up. Well, near the end of the movie I was sitting there holding my Lady Iron Dragon and Garmadon and said “well, at least Garm and Koko end up back together :)” My mom looked at me totally confused and said, “but they didn’t end up back together?” I was like ” oh, they didn’t? ” and started crying uncontrollably XD my mom felt so bad and tried to tell me that after the events of the movie they might have worked things out and I was just like, “Why aren’t they together again that is so messed up!” XD) and Jurassic World 2. I am definitely more into comedies than sad films, but I like the film to have meaning and help me realize something in the process 🙂

    1. Katie, that is literally such a sweet story that made me sad and happy. *Hugs* Your mom is so nice, Hehe. 🙂 Also, I agree that if they did not end up together it is really messed up! XD I enjoy comedies a lot more as well, and I totally agree.

      No worries! Crocheting is a worthwhile pursuit. XD
