This is going to sound really silly but I can't watch Bambi, Dumbo, Ol' Yeller or The Incredible Journey (original version) a second time. Try as I might, I'm in tears within the first 10 seconds and can't go any further. Basically, I can't watch anything that puts young children and/or animals in peril so I have never seen The Bear, Whale Rider, Incredible Journey 2 or a whole host of others.

As for movies that do not fall into the above category, I have to say Day of the Dolphin (okay - that harkens back to the first category and will never watch it again), Sophie's Choice, and Wrestling Ernest Hemingway. Wrestling reminds me too much of my dad in his later years so I won't be watching that again either. About 15 minutes into the movie, we had to hit pause because I began to cry like a baby and continued for the next 45 minutes. Great movie but too heart-wrenching for me. Harold and Maude (and I've mentioned this one in many other threads) is a wonderful movie but again, the ending has me trying to catch my breath between the sobs.

I'm sure there have been some recent movies that have had me in tears - it's not hard to do - but I'm hard-pressed to pick any particular one that has hit me the way the above-mentioned ones do - go fig.

Nice to see you too Piecar! It's bigmaude here! I jumped off BNA a while ago.

What in heavens got you banished from there? Are you still on the road or home?

I am technically still on the road...But my flight for home is in exactly....3 hours and 14 minutes.

And you, Roxymahue?

Actually, we should take this to a Private convo. Sorry for hijacking the thread.

Okay - so unless you sleep in, then I expect a new entry in the Non Sequitur thread sometime tomorrow - after you've caught up with Roxy, of course.

Isa now returns this thread it it's originally scheduled topic... ;)

Well, I don't cry of course (at least that is what i like to think) but the last parts of the Green Mile didn't keep me dry I have to admit.

and deep throat of course, because they didn't shave back then

The saddest movie that I have ever seen so far was "The Notebook" played by Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling)
