After years of being told how much I would love it I have started to watch the seven seasons of 'dr who'

And I really love it.

Especially David Tennant as the dr  wub.gif .

Anyway I was surprised how much I was turned in to a blubbering mess at the end of the second season the other night when the Dr and rose were permanently seperated.
And how he didint get to say he loved her in return in the final scene.

And the tears rolling down his face.......

Now I did watch after drinking to rather large glasses of wine, so I was well lubricated for it but it was sooooo sad!!!

So what has gotten the tears flowing for you recently?

Or do you never cry at movies ect?

I NEVER cry, the only exception being approximately 36hrs pre AF where I can become a blubbering mess watching a toilet paper commercial because of the *sob hiccup* puppies blush.gif (Study that says PMS doesn't exist can go suck eggs!)

Hehe! Welcome OP, it's a wonderful ride! I got hooked on Doctor Who a few months ago, and boy is it awesome! I had a few teary moments while watching it, but won't spoil it for you wink.gif

One that stands out the most to me, is when Mark Sloan died on Grey's Anatomy. I'll never get over that cry1.gif

The only time ever I have cried at a movie was the final scene of Sophie's Choice.

Enough said.

I've been rewatching Greys Anatomy and the end of season 2 where Denny dies had me done in the other day.

But admittedly I cry at a heck of a lot of stuff on tv blush.gif

PippityRoo - I think I missed that ep. I know I saw where he was asking the chief if he was going to die because of the elation he was in, then next thing he was gone? I was catching up through 7plus so wondering if I missed it. May have to investigate....

Downtown Abbey - one of the episodes from series 3. Blubbered my little heart out.

Oh I cry at everything since being pregnant so the latest thing probably isn't that helpful, some news article probably.

The end of The Notebook has never failed to make me cry.

Just recently, Les Mis.

Most memorably, the Grey's Anatomy scene where Hit By A Bus Guy's identity is revealed.

I sobbed uncontrollably during the montage in UP when it is revealed that she couldn't have children. Sobbed. Tears streaming down my face. In the cinema with my daughter asking 'what's wrong mummy? what's wrong?'

And Toy Story 3 at the end got me too but not as bad

DH came home with that movie We Bough A Zoo which I had overlooked heaps of times.

Loved it!

Matt Damon is gorgeous in it and his grief was palpable and how cute is that little girl?

Cried at Les Mis too!

Just for you Oriental Lily - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfEe9ysZmAw...ewBN3IO86hQ0Z-A

I watch it regularly, and every year or so, I go back to the beginning of the recent Dr. Who (Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant).  I am watching Dr. Matt, but so far he hasn't managed to pique my emotional genes the same way.

Yes, UP made me cry too! I cried whilst wearing glasses and 3D glasses at the same time and I couldn't see a thing!

For the Term of His Natural Life is the only book that made me cry, it was so sad and unfair!

Last night, reading 'Little House on the Prairie' with my 7 yr old, even thought I have read it many times before and knew what was coming. It's at the start, when they are crossing the flooded river and their dog Jack gets washed away. And the again in the next chapter when he finds his way back to them.

Up got me spectacularly, such sad just shouldn't be allowed in a kids movie lol

Private practice is a serial offender , as in tears streaming down my face , nothing else I've watched has ever done that ..the beeping writers of that show!

I cry watching alot of things... First time I cried was the Color Purple - the scene where the sisters are seperated and at the end. OMG...

Last week I was shocked I was crying watching the Kardashians - they were being mean to the father. I was hormonal - give me a break. Tounge1.gif

I never cry at movies about people, but when there is a dog movie, I cry most of the time. "Greyfriars Bobby" I just cannot watch again and "Red Dog" I didn't watch, because the dog dies and the same with "Marley and Me". cry1.gif  cry1.gif cry1.gif

I watched this a couple of weeks ago. What a great movie.

Passion of the Christ.
I don't know why as I'm not religious at all but this movie had me bawling my eyes out. I raced out of the cinema as soon as it finished and sobbed all the way home in the car. It took me a couple of days to get over it. I will never watch that film again.

I am one who does not cry (unemotional robot I have been called on a good day).

Les miserables had the tears down the cheeks.

TBH DH cries at more things than I.

ETA: it took 5-6days before I cried after being told my grandfather had died.... And it was the "Fure and Rain" song 'but I always hoped that I would see you again' on the radio. Kids wanted to know what was wrong with mummy as I don't think they have ever seen me cry.

ETA 2: I knew les mis story... I know every note in the score and every lyric. Even have CD of the original French Concept album..., so I knew what was coming/happening. The singing just got to me.
