    Do any of you ever just NEED to watch a sad movie so you can have a really good cry to get things out of your system once and for all?

    I think that is what I need to do.

    I've got a few things that I just need to really cry about...I'm thinking a sad movie is the ticket.

    Suggestions?


    :sad: :hugs: :hearts:

    Yes, I know what you mean.....I always liked to watch Steel Magnolias. It is sad, but has a really nice ending at the same time!

    Hope everything is going to be ok for you Karen!!!!! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

    I do not cry easily at movies. But sad music does the trick for me.

    I cannot listen to the Schindler's List soundtrack without wanting to bawl. So I never put it on unless I am already sad. Then I find myself sniffling away. Certain songs will do it for me too, like the song by Rascal Flatts called Skin.

    I cried a LITTLE at The Notebook and a LOT at Delta Force 2, at least I think it was 2... anyway, the one where they did the reenactment of the Navy soldier who was on the hijacked plane, and was beaten and murdered by Arab terrorists. I just couldn't take it.

    Karen, I hope you rejuvenate! :hugs: :hugs:

    Thanks, Jennifer and Meghann!

    I am fine. I just have a few sad things in my heart that I really need to have a good cry over and release them once and for all! (I hope!!!)

    I have the Notebook...it's a favorite of mine.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I have much to be happy about...mostly I am happy...but have some sad things I have to let go of now. I still have been too busy to take the time to watch the movie. But the sadness is there, so I must do so soon!

    Rejuvenate is a great way to put it, Meghann!

    :hugs:

    Thanks!

    :hearts: :hugs: :wavey:

    Sad Movies
    Artist: Sue Thompson
    Peak: #5 Lyrics by: John D. Loudermilk
    Year: 1961 Week peaked: 10/29/1961


    Sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

    He said he had to work so I went to the show alone.....
    They turned down the lights and turned the projector on
    And just as the news of the world started to begin
    I saw my darlin' and my best friend walk in....

    Though I was sittin' there they didn't see
    And so they sat right down in front of me....
    When he kissed her lips I almost died
    And in the middle of the color cartoon I started to cry.

    Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry
    Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

    And so I got up and slowly walked on home
    And mama saw the tears and said what's wrong?
    And so to keep from telling her a lie
    I just said sa-a-a-d movies make me cry

    Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry
    Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Sa-a-a-d movies make me cry-i-i

    Good luck Karen. Try Immortal Beloved (the story of Beethoven with Gary Oldman and Isabella Rossellini), or my favorite: Truly, Madly Deeply (Alan Rickman at his studly best. When he starts reciting poetry in Spanish, I lose it every time. Plus the Bach Sonata in G Major for piano and Cello is just a religious experience.).

    Um, My mom digs Beaches for a good cry.

    Hope these help. Hang in there.

    What about Cyrano de Bergerac? How can anyone not cry when Cyrano recited to Roxane his love letter with his very dying breath?

    I cried at the end of Gattaca. I think it was more of joy, though.

    I have a CD of "Paradise Road" that I listened to when I was trying to deal with my Dad's death....Have also seen the movie. Haven't listened to it since, because I don't know what will happen if I do.

    Thanks, everyone!

    I still have that deep need to cry, but I've been so busy, and have had no time alone to watch a movie and get past it!

    It makes my husband feel like he needs to do something if I cry too much...and I NEED to cry too much!! :rofl:

    We had company last night and they'll be here to spend the night with their five beautiful children Thursday night! I've been friends with the husband/dad since 7th grade. We've always been just the best of friends. His wife and I hit it off and are great friends, and we adore their children.

    She home schools all of them and they are so much fun.

    They are amazing!

    I just have to get rid of that little weepiness inside!

    Great ideas here. I have a long list of movies that make me cry. Terms of Endearment always gets me too!

    Beaches...the song...Wind Beneath My Wings, gets to me VERY MUCH. That is the song my sisters and I chose from us to our Dad when he suddenly passed away from Pancreatic Cancer nearly 14 years ago.

    Maybe Saturday, while I wash sheets and clean up after our friends leave, I can find time for a movie. My hubby works Saturday.

    :hugs: :hearts: You are the best!

    The movie "My Dog Skip" always does it for me. That and the book "Where the Red Fern Grows", if I have more time for reading.

    Something about the dog theme makes them guaranteed sob-inducers for me. :crying:

    That would've been my pick (this is really thinking outside the gender box for me here...) But that's the reaction my wife has everytime. That movie, along with Out of Africa*, can be an emotional roller-coaster, so if you're looking to do some purging of tears they could be right up your alley.

    While one of my top-10 favorites of all time, Out of Africa always irritated the hell outta me 'cause the story is about Meryl Streep's fact-based character & her travails, but Redford got (over-rated IMO) top billing. But the full emotional range is in that one, along with a dynamite score by John Barry.

    * Make sure you get the FULL-length one.

    Have a good :crying:

    :patriot:

    Has anyone ever seen "Somewhere In Time"?

    That is one of my absolute favorites! My mom, sisters and I ALWAYS watch it when it Mother-daughter get a way weeks for us. AND cry!

    Some of the oldies that made me and my older sister cry when we were younger, we have watched recently and thought..."They were MUCH better when we were kids!"

    "The Way We WERE."

    :rofl: "Love Story". Love means never having to say you're sorry! NOT!!!

    My husband and I did watch a movie about 9-11-1 the other night, and I REALLY cried over that! So many people have forgotten, it seems about how we all felt the day that all broke loose!

    I didn't know what was going on and COULDN'T listen to the news because I had to protect the innocense of my precious first graders!
    I was told there were planes headed to Orlando International Airport.
    I couldn't leave my students; yet the saftey of my own children scared me at their schools; and my HUSBAND was working practically on the runway of the Airport!

    So, that movie really made me cry remembering my terror that day!

    :sigh:

    Cold Mountain makes me cry too! I love that movie and can watch it over and over again! :crying:

    Always does it for me, too. I cry every time I see it.

    I had the same problem as you, Karen. I had to go to a crime scene last week, and I've done this a lot over twenty years in the crime biz, but for some reason this time it got to me. This gal was in her early 20s, and got into it with her ex-husband. I can't go into the facts, because the case is in the early stages of prosecution. Fortunately, her children weren't in the house.

    She took three to the chest, among others, with .45ACP, from six feet. Firing 165-grain +P JHP. Nasty.

    I was on the way home with Beloved Hubby from breakfast this morning and for some reason, I started thinking about that investigation in the car...and I just started tearing up. That's not like me at all, I usually have a heart of stone about these things, just the job and all that. that is the second domestic-related homicide I've got involved in this year, too. Makes me really grateful for my beloved hubby.

    Miao, Cat

    :hearts: :hugs: I know what you mean!!! I'm grateful for mine, too! He's amazing!

    I can't EVEN imagine what some women deal with! We rarely disagree and when we do, we talk fairly and respectfully to each other!

    I feel so blessed!

    Karen, I read Bridge to Terebithia this week, and cried my eyes out. :crying:
