Well.....do any?
I have war in quotes cause I dont just mean war between two countries kinda movie. Could be like a guy protecting his family kinda movie. Ive been told that im a little wierd because I like good accurate war movies, especially the ones that can make me shed some tears. Some people have a hard time seeing why you would watch something violent and generally depressing and have it be your favorite genre. I might start a list.....

Saving Private Ryan.


Tears of the Sun made me laugh. Those guys were so hokey I was cheering on the bad guys. I hate movies that try to be so serious when they are so full of crap.

EDITED: AHHH! I WASTED MY 1000TH POST ON THIS LAME REPLY!

The last episode of Band of Brothers when the real Winters talks about the time his grandson asked him if he was a hero. Damn emotional moment.

Ok. Since im not the only one here my list

Gladiator when he dies and goes with his wife and kids
Braveheart: when he sees his wife in the crowd at the end
The Patriot: when he grabs the flag and rallys everone
Saving Private Ryan: At the beginning when old Ryan is walking through the cemetary. The instant I see the first cross and the first snare drum cracks I absolutely lose it. When ryans mother is going out here pourch. When the doc dies. and at the end when old Ryan salutes I lose it.
Band of Brothers: about halfway through the series the introduction started to make me cry. Episode 9 when the Jewish man hugs the soldier and thanks him in the camp I absolutely lose it. The end when winters grandson asked him a question about him being a hero
I bought the soundtrack and it alone makes me cry.
We were soldiers: when the pass out the telegrams to the wives
Shindlers List: At the end of course. Who ever doesnt cry at the end is a Nazi and should be shot.
Road to Perdition: The end or course.
Black Hawk Down: the "tell my parents speech" and the music video "Gortoz a Ran-J'Attends"
Link Posted: 11/1/2004 4:01:55 PM EST
yeah they do... because seeing those that are based on real events, and most on actual people... we get to see a depiction of their bravery and their sacrifice.

I just got done watching The Lost Battalion. Seeing how bravely those dough boys held their positions against almost insurmountable odds was amazing.

War movies remind me of the great men who fought and died in the wars that gained, guaranteed and preserved the freedoms I enjoy today. They honor the memory of those men.

Oh yeah, THATS THE WORST SCENE (when trying to keep your eyes dry that is)
"I wanna go home! I wanna go home! I wanna go home!"


Other choker scenes include when Vin Diesel (I think) gets shot by the sniper and is telling his buddies about the letter to his dad.

Twice during Delta Force.

First when the team member dies on the plane in first class and the priest is giving last rights while everyone else is celebrating in coach.

Second when they land and all the civilians are celebrating while the soldiers unload in the rear with their dead and wounded, acting like the quiet professionals.

That version of Minstrel Boy is by Joe Strummer (of The Clash). It was the last officially released song he did before he died. That alone makes me cry.

+1...VERY powerful movie. Mel was awesome as Col. Moore.

SPR gets to me...but not the battles scenes, the part where the old guy sees Capt. Millers' headstone for the first time, and collapses from the emotional impact.

Do any "war" movies make you cry?
yes

Used to... not really anymore though. Ever since I joined the Army I look at them a little different.

We Were Soldiers, In the scene with the telegrams when the black woman gets the telagram a couple of asshats started laughing further up in the theater. It made me want to pound in their faces, but someone closer to them had a few words with them and they left

I have to admit, it got me choked up. I immediatley thought of my Grandmother and how she must have felt when she got the news that her first born child was killed on Saipan. It was a pain that she never fully recovered from.
Incidently, I took my father (Korean War Vet, Infantry) to see it. He cried during the Omaha Beach scene. If he can, I guess it's OK for anyone else. He didn't say it but I'm certain that he was thinking of his brother.
