Inspired by ISIS Ghost post on 90s rewind!


What 80's movies do you watch that no matter how many times you have seen them you end up balling every time?

Mine are: Terms of Endearment
The Color Purple
Mask

Sometimes you are in the mood for a good cry and these are definately ones that can get you started!!!

ET...I'm telling you, it's pathetic. I didn't know I could cry that much.

Terms was at Best Buy for like $4.99.

I know I have said this before but Project X makes me cry horribly so. I cannot even watch it.

Ialways watch the Breakfast Club and St. Elmos Fire. My kids like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, they hate when I recite the lines.

Assuming that you meant 'bawling', and not 'balling'......

Field of Dreams. The end scene always puts a huge lump in my throat. There is just "something" about a game of catch with a father and son. It's so simple yet so special. Hard to explain unless that was something you did with your father.

Oh wow how could I have forgotten Beaches. Absolutely a very sad flick. I haven't ever seen Six Weeks, and probablly won't want to unless I just want to cry for no reason. NA!

Awesome film. The part that always gets me is when Burt Lancaster steps out of the ball game and gives his dream up selflessly, realising he has a greater purpose in the here and now.

I thought it was sad at the end of Wierd Science, and they had to give back those cool cars. That was sad!

Watership Down puts a lump in my throat.

I don't tend to cry at films but (and I know it's not an 80s film) 'Moulin Rouge' is the one film that makes me cry.

Made in Heaven with Kelly McGillis & Timothy Hutton is the one where they meet in Heaven and have to find each other on Earth.

The hospital scene at the end of She's Having A Baby always gets me.

At Close Range with Sean Penn and Christopher Walken is very sad, it's unbelievable what Brad(Christopher) does to his son Brad Jr. (killing his son's friends and then attempting to kill his son and girlfriend, only Brad jr. survives) followed by the showdown at his house.
There's also the courtroom scenes and the smile Brad sr. gives to the two victims relatives outside.  -
