I cry over animal movies - Old Yeller, Marley and Me, etc. Every time I see Homeward Bound, I cry. I had a golden retriever that looked just like Shadow. He disappeared one weekend. When Shadow comes trudging back at the end of the movie, I turn on the waterworks.
I won't watch animal movies for that reason. I just rule them all out because "we all know" there's going to be something disturbing. I seem to have learned the "avoid-some-things" school-of-thought from my mother, who wouldn't let me see Bambi (because the mother dies), Dumbo (because of the fire), or any number of other movies with unpleasantness in them.
Only at the movies my wife watchs. Why you want to see something that sad is way beyond me. Those are the real horror movies. Like a poor lady can't pay her rent. So, her landlord takes her two kids and sells them. She is distraught over the kids so she sends their dog Laddy to find them. Well Laddy runs over three continents finds a mate, Drucilla. Well the had unprotected sex and Druciila is preggers. Laddy promised to come back once he found the kids. On the forth contient there's the kids! Laddy runs up and the kids thought he was a wolf. They beat Laddy to death and eat him. They regain their strenght and go of to college and have their own families. Drucilla has the cutest puppies and they sell for thousands, so, Drucilla has a new job. The Lady has no kids, no dog and just one dollar. She buys a lottery ticket and wins. In the end the Lady is never alone again she has thousands of adoring fans of her book series, " The Glamour of Baked Goods".
If that doesn't make you cry( pick whatever direction you want) you're brain dead.
Okay, let's be honest with ourselves, I know some of you had to have gotten misty eyed while a few movies during your time. To be honest, I try to never allow the emotional factor of films to get to me, as most of them use it disguise how tragically cliche ridden and/or horrible the plot is...
What movie has had the strongest emotional reaction from you?Lately, I've noticed just how powerfully movies can/have effected me, and inspired so many of my poems. Among the most powerful for me are Braveheart, Meet Joe Black, Pearl Harbor, The Patriot, and Lord of the Rings: Return of the KingI'm...
Last night I went through several of my articles and added parentheses to some material in the title so that I could see the response in traffic. The parentheses were removed by HP editing and replaced with a dash. Why?example: My Dog Was Hit by a Car (So What Happens Next?)was replaced by My Dog...
Just curious, it's not the end of the world... but one person un-followed me today. It's easy to tell as I am fairly new here and didn't have a lot of followers to begin with. What might be some reasons anyone would unfollow?
