Which films make men cry?

I'm a cry baby when I watch TV, movies. So it's good to know modern men are not immune either.

In response to the Magazine's discussion about why Toy Story 3 makes men cry, male readers have been getting in touch with their emotional side and opening up about their own private tear-jerkers. Here is a selection.

1. There's one scene for me, it's the Grey Havens at the end of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I've seen it loads of times, but even as a man in my 30s, it still manages to get me going every single time! The emotion of the characters, having gone through their personal sacrifices (particularly Frodo of course), coupled with Howard Shore's brilliantly moving score always makes me weepy with that lump in the throat feeling.

2. The Shawshank Redemption had me in fits of tears because of the joy and happiness that ensues when those two lifelong companions are reunited on that beach. The hardships they've endured and the power of their friendship stirs the longing for good friends in me. Yep, I'm a weeper and proud!

Which movie makes you cry?

  1. It doesn't take much to turn on the water faucets for me. As long as I'm alone.


  2. Doesn't happen very often. Last time, I think, was when I saw "La vita è bella" (Life is Beautiful) by Roberto Benigni. The movie is special, starting as a fun comedy, and ending with concentration camp horror and holocaust in WW2.

  3. Sorry, sick for a whole week. Finally feel better. Ah, I heard a lot about the movie. But too sad...
