what's happening to me?

i just cried at the radio show call-in part of sleepless in seattle.
i don't even know who i am anymore.

i have few movie weaknesses where i was a crybox.
my firsts:
a. savannah smiles - not all bad people are bad!
b. E.T. - the persecuted shall be free!
c. frosty the snowmo - death! questions of return! afterlife!

my constants:
a. it's a wonderful life
b. e.t.
c. terms of endearment

you name some.

oh g - dead poets!! holy bawl machine!

broke-b, no cry but wistful.

remember beaches? that thing was a machine of crymakers. it pisses me off that that's what it was MADE for, so now i feel resilient. i feel angry at movies that are bred to make people cry (read: Dying Young)... though now i suppose there's a reason those things exist (to not be dead insee).

i should add i think i cry everytime to the second list of mine... there's certainly been more movies that i've cried AT. like, crybot at old yeller, but also only saw old yellski once, i bet.

tell me more!

Charlotte's Web - every time I've seen it since I was 5
Brian's Song - if it's sad enough to make Billy Dee Williams cry, how could I not?
and...
The Buddy Holly Story - because the first time I saw it (I was 7) I didn't know how it ended.

Driving Miss Daisy.
...at the end, when Hoke feeds her some pie.

Return of the Jedi.
...when the Ewoks arrive on screen.

That is all.

Trace - don't forget to mention that you cry at everything from hallmark commercials to WWF events....read...you cry at EVERYTHING! I think it is great. I mostly cry when I am watching movies alone so I can maintain the dead inside persona.

tracy - did you watch TPIR yesterday? i just by chance caught it in my hotel room and that scenario just happed.

CHARLOTTE'S WEBBBBB! of course. i just rented it a year ago to reflect on whether it would make me cry again. i did. also, i thought charlotte was BEAUTIFUL when i was little. like, gorgeo. i still found myself thinking it. especially when she puts her little paw to her chin. i love her!

Dave Levin = adorbs... ewoks!

Chrissy, do you really cry at all the Rockys? nothing fits you more.

living in america,
