Which movies brought you to tears?

Recommended Posts

But my allergies always act up when I watch Watership Down.

Imagine the fun of watching that at 10 :P I don't generally cry for movies, but that doesn't mean I don't get upset at times...

 

the movie that got me the closest to crying (childhood excluded) is probably "A bridge for Therabitia", not because it's more sad than others but because you don't expect... it (no spoilers I guess?).

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

It's not a movie but last night's episode of Seal Team had me teared up for much of the hour.

This hit me so damn hard as i'm a self confessed anti-war person. His bottled anger and frustration comes out in spades

 

Also this:

 

 

I'm not an art fan, and Van Gogh's work doesn't really move me but as someone who is a guitarist and a dancer it hit me to, every artist (Whether that be painter, director etc.) wants only one thing; recognition

That is the first Dr. Who episode that I have ever watched and it got me hooked. 

 

If we are going to derail this thread and talk about Doctor Who, then the episodes that gave me the most feels are the "The Day of the Doctor" episodes, especially the part when he meets the curator:

That sounds like BBC's Sherlock

Well, my brain doesn't process things like a normal person's.  It's a developmental disorder I was born with.  If something interests me I do well at it, but I'm incapable of understanding emotions and social cues like a normal person.  So, some form of arts won't get me emotional like it would you or others.

Yeah that sounds like autism, my brother had it; but not as severe as you claim to have

I don't like the new one at all. Seems like I had much higher expectations for quality. I'll need to get used to it, but not a fan so far :(

I like the guy from the Chase in it though, he always is a good chat. 

 

To add to the topic = I hardly cry at all, but I get moved in nostalgic movies like Harry Potter.

If you mean the Big Bang Theory I doubt he has it.  That show doesn't get a lot of things right.  And, no you can't cure autism it is a developmental disorder via the brain.

I haven't been able to watch any of the new season, feelsbadman.

Personally, I think it went downhill after Clara left.

 

Harry Potter is one of the ones I completely forgot about, Dobby always did it for me..
