Random Factoid #73

9 10 2009

This factoid is one especially tough for me to talk about just due to my nature as a guy.  Yes, the subject of today’s factoid is tearjerking movies.  I will admit that I am not impervious to the power of these types of movies.  I will soon shamelessly reveal one movie that makes me bawl uncontrollably.  In fact, I watched a clip on YouTube and got choked up within the first 5 seconds.  The other one you will really have to work out of me.  I am actually really ashamed to say I cried in this certain movie.  Any guesses?

Movies that make always me cry…

Older movies:
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
It’s a Wonderful Life (I can’t help it)
To Kill a Mockingbird

More recent movies that might make Marshall cry:
Remember the Titans
Lion King
Defending your Life (have you seen this movie?)
Brian’s Song (they make fun about men crying to this in Sleepless in Seattle)
Titanic (Hope cries)
Big Fish

Am I close?

If you’re aiming to guess that one movie, you are skewing way too obvious.

I love “Remember the Titans” and while it tugs on my tear ducts, they never break them.
Maybe I would cry in “Titanic” if the movie was an hour shorter. Then I might have felt inclined to feel something other than boredom.

The typical tearjerkers don’t usually get me, mainly because I already know that people cry watching them and I prepare myself mentally.
