First, allow me to explain that I meant tear as in a drop of salt water that proceeds forth from a duct in your eye, not as in shredding or ripping. So...it's confession time again. I really need to come up with some sort of catchy tune for these confession times...kinda like the mail song on Blues Clues. So, the wife and I get a hankerin to watch Moulin Rouge the other night (which, when we usually say "the other night," it could be 5 months ago, but this is not the case), and for those of you who don't know that Nicole Kidman dies at the end, don't read the preceding or following sentences. I always know when Teresa is crying...she's horrible at trying to hide it. But right there at the end of her (Satine's) life, I can't help but let the thought pop into my head that I may have to go through something similar someday. Teresa is none-the-wiser about the droplet forming on my eyelid at that point in time. Yes, that's right...I'm a crybaby.
But it got me thinking...what other movies make me tear up? I can't be the only one who has a list. Here's what I got so far, aside from the aforementioned flick:
Saving Private Ryan
Band of Brothers
(brace for it...)Hercules. Yes, I said Hercules, the Disney version, the animated Disney version. Say what you will, I find it very touching.
The Lamb of God (but who doesn't cry in that one?)
Uh...that's all I got right now. Feel free to make fun of me now, but I feel better anyway.
