6 Movies that made me cry

Most of you know I'm a movie junkie. Those of you who knows me better knows it's very difficult to make me cry. Anyhow, I've consolidated the top 6 movies that (almost) attempted to make me tear:

#6: The Other Woman

This is a comedy featuring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. Leslie Mann plays Kate, the legitimate wife of the rich and handsome businessman, Mark King. In a twist of fate, Kate realized her husband has been cheating on her with Cameron and Kate. When confronted, the three ladies realized they are all victims of love. Soon, the trio teams up and plots a huge revenge against their man.

THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: I didn't cry but there were touching moments. After all the drama is gone, Kate finally had time to herself on an empty beach. She finally took off her ring, as a symbolism of ending her marriage and cast it into the sea. This is an intense moment, given her meekness at the start of the movie.

#5: Begin Again

Begin Again talks about starting life afresh when a relationship ends. Keira Knightley and Adam Levine are musicians deeply in love. When Adam has his big break, he cheats on her and they subsequently parted ways. Keira then has to piece back the broken pieces of her life because afterall, she has invested so much in this relationship. 

THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: Likewise, I did not cry but there was a special moment when Keira, decided to end her relationship with Adam with a self composed song.

#4: The Judge

Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr.), is a brilliant but shady lawyer who returns to his Indiana hometown after learning that his mother has passed on.

His arrival triggers renewed tension between himself and his father, Judge Joseph. As Hank is about to depart from Indiana, his father is arrested for a hit-and-run death. Hank takes on his father's defense, despite the objections of the resentful old man and though both are loggerheads on many issues, begin to find reconciliation. 

THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: Many. One of which was when Hank found out his father had terminal illness and was losing his ability to care for himself. There was this scene when Judge Joseph had involuntary bowel problems and Hank had to clean up for his dad.


#3: This Is Where I Leave You

This movie resolves around the lives of four grown siblings. When their father passes on, these siblings are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother. There are lots of comedic moments but each is backed with delicate moments between the siblings.

THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: Throughout the show, the protagonist, Judd, insisted he is fine despite being cheated on by his wife and his dad's untimely passing. Towards the end of the movie, something etched his memory and he suddenly recalls about the good old times he had with his dad. He broke down and cry.

#2: If I Stay

The movie begins on a happy note with Mia and her family getting ready for a road trip when the family gets into a fatal car accident. Mia's spirit was caught out of her body and as her earthly self clings to life, her mind wanders to the past, bringing us up to speed on who she is and how she got here.

Still in her spirit, she witness the death of her parent and only kid brother. She also sees her relatives and friends gathered in the hospital, all hoping she will survive.

THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: The deep stab in the heart is probably the scene when Mia's grandpa was sitting by her bedside while she was in comatose. Grandpa had just lost a son and now faces the possibility of losing another generation. In his grieve, he still puts himself in Mia's shoe. He tells her if she does not want to return to a life that would be unrecognizable to her, it's alright for her to die.

"If you can't bear the pain of living, I'll bear the pain of losing you. Sacrifice, that's what we do for the people we love.." 

#1: The Fault In Our Stars

I swear everyone in the cinema had swollen eyes when this movie ended.  
This movie revolves around an advanced stage cancer patient, Hazel. She is counting her days in hopelessness when she meets this guy, Augustus (also a cancer patient). They subsequently fell in love, only to be separated by death.
THE SCENE THAT BROKE ME: There are many moments in the show. One of such is the scene when Hazel had to give an eulogy for Augustus. 


 "My name is Hazel. Augustus Waters was the great star-crossed love of of my life. Ours was an epic love story, and I won't be able to get more than a sentence into it without disappearing into a puddle of tears. Gus knew. Gus knows. I will not tell you our love story, because like all real love stories, it will die with us. As it should. I'd hoped that he'd be eulogizing me, because there is no one I'd rather have. I can't talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this. There is an infinite between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many days of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You have me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."
