WARNING: THE FOLLOWING BLOG CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!!
Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and as you can tell from the title, there are movies that make me cry (the word cry is an understatement). I am such a wimp when it comes to movies. Sometimes I cry over stuff that’s not worth crying about, and then I spoil my beautiful makeup (not my makeup!!!).
But anyways, as there are so many movies that I can’t even name them all I’m going to list the top 5 movies that make me cry in order. BUT FIRST….
The movie that didn’t quite make the Top 5 – If I Stay
The fact that Mia’s parents die and her little brother die’s from the car crash make me sad but when her “Gramps” sits next to her hospital bed when she is in a coma and he has this heartbreaking speech makes me cry every time. Moreover when Adam plays that beautiful song that he wrote for her which causes her to wake up is so adorable. The movie is tragic but I love it too much.
Now onto the Top 5
5) My Sister’s Keeper
I watched this in school in Year 10 in Philosophy class. We watched the movie then we had a debate on whether Anna should have given Kate her kidney. It’s so sad when Kate dies in the end. She has terminal cancer and she looks through a collage book filled with pictures from memories and then she dies in her sleep next to her mum. I didn’t tell any of my friends but I shed one or two tears while watching it in class, but thankfully no one noticed because I was in the corner of the room. I guess it got to me because of my Nan, but I’d rather not talk about it so let’s not get into that.
4) The Fault in Our Stars
A classic. Makes everyone cry. I laugh at the start of Isaac’s eulogy and when he teases Gus for interrupting it but I feel sad when he says he doesn’t want to see a world without Gus, but then I giggle when he said he would take the robot eyes anyway. However, I cry a river when Hazel is reading her amazing eulogy about their relationship. The whole speech about infinities is so moving and heartbreaking for me because Gus should have lived. He had a 80% success rate but he ended up in the little 20%. I also cry when Hazel gets the news that he died and one of the saddest parts was when she places the pack of cigarettes on Gus’s grave because he lost his old pack. Also the letter Gus wrote at the end was beautiful.
3) Marley and Me
Judging from the title of this blog you lot just KNEW that this would pop up at some point, but why wouldn’t it? This is on everyone’s list. If it’s not, then you either haven’t seen it – in which I advice you NOT to as it ruined my life, OR you are not human and you have no soul.
Anyhoo, this movie in my opinion should never have been made. I’m not kidding, if I could wind back the clock I would most certainly un-watch it as it has caused me nothing but sadness. Even thinking about it now is choking me up.
The worst thing is when I watched it, all I knew about it was that it was about a dog. I was only 10 and my sister insisted that I watch it with her so I did. I was and still am very sensitive to animals, I can’t watch any movie where a dog is harmed or could nearly die (or I at least leave the room at that part or cover my ears and shut my eyes), so I asked my sister if the dog gets hurt or dies and she read reviews on it and she knew what happens but she said no, nothing bad happens to the dog. GODDAMM LIAR. I was sobbing like I have never sobbed before and I couldn’t take it anymore and left the room. After that I didn’t talk to my sister for 2 weeks and I refused to leave my dog alone for a month, to her annoyance. I didn’t watch past the part where they bury the dog in the garden so can you guys tell me what happens after that? Just curious to know.
2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
The part where Harry sees Snape’s memories and he finds out the truth about him. It’s funny at how people didn’t like him at first as he was a mean teacher but people’s opinion on him soon changed when we find out what he really thought. Poor Snape. That made me shed a tear. However, the epilogue is what really gets me going. When they’re in Kings Cross with their kids and they’re all grown up. The old music took me by surprise as I didn’t expect them to use that. I expect them to use the shittier modern tunes. The music and Harry all grown up brought back old memories and it became too much for me in the end. Harry was the best thing ever when I was little but now it’s all over, like the end of childhood.
1) About Time
This is my most favourite movie of all time. Even though it makes me cry I can’t stop watching it. The part when Tim’s Dad gets cancer and he dies is sad but what’s really sad is when Tim goes back in time to see his dad for the last time and they walk on the beach and Tim thanks him for being a great Dad. The end makes me cry of happiness too. I seriously recommend watching this, it’s quite a comical movie even though it’s a little sad.
That’s all for now guys.
Viola over and out xxx
