Dave I tell you what, for some reason I also cry with sport movies.

"The natural" makes me cry every time, and I can't even watch "Field of Dreams" any more. The waterworks start with the music in the opening scene, I'm tearing right now just thinking about it. It just triggers all the "father/son" stuff in me.

the first time I remember crying in a movie was The Thorn Birds.. and the second time was ET. The first R movie I ever saw was the David Bowie movie, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and then Jaws. oh and that one Jane Fonda movie... I can't think of the name of it... She was like a space slut or something.... oh yeah, Barbarella.

Seagrass just had to say I think you have very interesting taste in movies. I hardly meet anyone who knows the movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth” even exists. And Thorn Birds is awesome; I don’t care if the author of the book didn’t like the movie
, that movie is so romantic and realistically dysfunctional.

Yay, something I can contribute to without feeling like the house stupid:

ACTION/ADVENTURE – Southern Comfort
S


Excellent and absolutely underrated film!!!

In fact the star, Powers Boothe, is an excellent and absolutely underrated actor:

Tombstone
Extreme Prejudice
Red Dawn
his run on HBO's Deadwood
and the greatest Made For TV Movie EVER, Guyana Tragedy: The Jim Jones Story

Rapin, It is showing how old I am... My dad took me to the David Bowie movie when I was like 14 or something. I was confused by it, I watched it much later and it wasn't so confusing. I loved Logan's Run when I was young, do you remember that one?
I cried on my bed when Thorn Birds played each night in that series. I was going through puberty at the time.. was it my hormones or what it really that sad? I will have to rent it again sometime....

Other than Jeff Goldblum, you may be the only other person who knows this film exists. Fantastic and wonderfully creepy. Still waiting for it to make it to R1 DVD so I can get rid of my laserdisc.

Grrrrrrrrr I can't believe I am going to post this...... damn, there goes the image.....


Here's a few more that made me shed a tear or two on certain parts. Maybe movies have a tendency to make us potentially see things in our own lives that are similar.... things we wish we had and don't..... who knows.... but here's a few more Inside The Mind Of Dave.

A Walk To Remember

Terms Of Endearment

Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

On Golden Pond

Georgia's Rule

The Majestic

The Notebook

Endless Love

Same Time Next Year

Dragonfly

Titanic

The Way We Were

To Sir With Love

The Sixth Sense

Steel Magnolias

The Cowboys

The Jazz Singer (Neil Diamond version)


Okay... No Mas, No Mas.

First film as an adult to make me cry, 85...tried my damnedest to get that puppy backed to start production even a despiration call to Prince at Paisley Park and couldn't get past the receptionist. Making that would have changed quite a few things...looking at the story now through older eyes, the plot and story kinda sucked.

But seriously, I ponied that one up earlier. Chasing Amy---curse you Kevin Smith for writing too well.

I see some people added some genres...

I like the two comedy(spaghetti)westerns from Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, They Call Me Trinity(1970) and Trinity is Still My Name(1971) and all other movies by them actually...

I saw Steel Magnolias while on a trip to Santa Fe with my mom. The WHOLE theater was bawling... My mom was extra nice to me for a few days after that.

Yeah I remember that movie but I haven’t seen it in years. I think I had a crush on Jenny Agutter.

It is really that sad. I noticed the older I get the more the movie seems like a mini-soap opera, but in a good way.
