The Loverly Bones.
The Sixth Sense.
AI (si fi).

These films have had me in tears of saddness and still do when I watch them especialy AI and I do get very emotional with love story films if ther is a happy ending I cry with joy,yes I am a real cry baby and proud to be in touch with my emotion's.I write this thread because of something I have just read on L/G thread about bringing out peoples emotion's in certain mentalism routines,do they cry when they see your show ,should they?, reference (Counterpoint - Aaron Alexander and Jerome Finley).
Anyway not to detract,what is your list of films or even what type bring out your tears of happiness or saddness?.

Anything where the protagonist succeeds in spite of extreme hardship. Also tales of self sacrifice for the greater good. Not any supernatural films that I can think of. Usually dramas to it for me.

I'm a big crybaby, so my list would be too long.

One film I can watch again and again though, is Field of Dreams...Americana, baseball, family, time travel, playing catch with your ghost dad...what's not to love? Has me draining my peepers every time.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Could be a loooong list,....but for all time I have to include just about ANY Ingmar Bergman film,....and especially relevant to all in this brethran, "The Magician". I actually have a VHS of the latter from decades ago and I am just now realizing how long it has been since I have watched it and that I should seek to have it transferred to a dvd for posterity asap!

As do most Pixar. Toy Story 3 milked a lot of tears. More recently I was surprised how much I enjoyed Wreck-It-Ralph, wasn't expecting much from it.

The history boys always gets me at the end and I have a soft spot for meet Joe Black.

Not Supernatural, but a film that really tugged at my emotions is 'Uncommon Valor'.(1983)
War/Rescue flick !

Local Hero...makes me crazy homesick.

Here is the entire film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh0ja-BTpbk

Yes it is supernatural...it has a real Mermaid...and Peter Capaldi the new Doctor Who.

Non-fiction (sort of): 'The Right Stuff'

Fiction: 'The Sandlot'; runner up 'Castaway' (the death of Wilson)

Science Fiction: 'Contact'

Supernatural: 'The Exorcist' (for fear); 'Ghost' (for tear-jerking)

I love the old Hopkins film- Magic. I've watched it about 5 times. It gives me the creeps, in a good way...

Not supernatural, but a few films which stir my emotions and make me teary eyed at the endings are:

Rudy
Shane
Dances With Wolves
A Perfect World




A film so creepy that it kept me from sleeping:

Paranormal Activity

And a great soundtrack by Mark Knopfler. Smile

My choice: "Jacob's Ladder"

"Jacob's Ladder" is a standout without a doubt Mind Guerrilla. Quite emotional and visually arresting, and the ending is killer.

Looking back on it now, I remember how cutting-edge and disturbing the effects were at the time. They were all done in camera...no CG. The director, Adrian Lyne, was inspired by painter Francis Bacon and it shows. The imagery is off-putting and disturbing. Since then, most if not all of the trickery has been copied by dozens of films to the point that the techniques are now sadly, cliche.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
