I felt emotional just writing about these films. P.s as previously mentioned, I’m no film buff, so don’t expect any cool, obscure films to crop up in this particular list.
This film has inspired this particular post. I’ve just noticed it was on the list of films on demand on telly and, as I am a glutton for punishment, I put it on solely to watch the first ten minutes, which are ten of the most heart-breaking minutes in cinematic history. Cross your heart…
One of my favourite films of all time. I have watched it about a thousand times and the bit where Forrest is having a chat to Jenny at her gravestone about how smart Forrest Jnr is kills me off every time.
When Dumbo goes to visit his mum as she’s been locked away for being a crazy elephant (WRONGLY MAY I ADD) and Baby Mine is playing…oh I can’t type any more about this one. Watch it instead:
A strange choice, you might think, as it is by and large gut-wrenchingly hilarious (the scene on the plane makes me sob laughing to be fair), but I’ve watched it countless times with our Helen and we are sure to well up at the part near the end when Lillian is about to leave for her honeymoon and she’s saying bye to everyone at the party and she can’t find Annie but then she glimpses her in the crowd and the look they exchange says it all. Because you don’t need to say anything for your best friend to know exactly what you mean, do you?
I actually hate the film adaptation of this. Maybe my tears when watching it are down to Anne Hathaway’s abomination of a Yorkshire accent. But mainly it’s down to the fact that it obviously reminds me of the book, which I hold very dear, and the sad bit (which I won’t mention here for fear of spoiling it for people who haven’t read it) SHOCKED ME TO THE CORE when I read it for the first time. When I went to see it in the cinema I nearly had to be hospitalised, I was crying that much. My mate Sarah was contemplating pretending not to know me, I was that much of a show.
Bit depressed now.
