Crying Discussion » Speed Round: Movie Recs » July 2, 2024 2:19 am

Stressed today and just need to see some g-d good acting. List me off some of the best movies you know with male crying scenes. The requirements?

An actual breakdown, not just teary eyes or something. This may or may not sound weird but I need the catharsis of someone else sobbing because I just don't have the energy to right now.

-Preferably "hot" peoole but I use this term loosely. When I saw hot I don't mean conventionally attractive necessarily. Certainly not "pretty criers." Use your best judgement. If you think they're hot, I probably will too.

-a dude. A guy. A man. What have you.

Bonus points if the movie is:

Emotional throughout
Super gay
Has prettt cinematography
Not something I'd necesarrily have seen before. Id rather watch something unique tonight. Ready set go, try to get back to me quick!

Okay so in real life? I was 6 or 7, and it was this kid a little older than me that I was going to VBS with (idk why i find the fact that this awakening happened at a church related event so effortlessly funny.) I cant remember why he was crying, only that it made my palms hurt in this weird good way. Idk why, but my palms always hurt when i see someone crying. I don't know if thats an empathy thing or an attraction thing. Maybe its a mix.

On tv: 6 years old. Monsters and Mazes. 80s Tom Hanks: "Kate, why can't i remember"

The Mothman Prophecies, he cries at about an hour and 34 minutes in. The downside is that for most of the crying you don't actually see him, you just hear him. You see a little bit. Twice, actually, just a few minutes later he does again

Leo Woodall noticably tears up/sheds tears/sobs several times in Netlix's One Day miniseries.

In episode 5, in one scene with his mom tears up sonewhat. Just after, during one scene with his father, his eyes fill up with tears. Only a short while later, leaving a voicemail for his friend, he tears up, voice cracks, sheds a tear and gasp-sob-cries for a breif little while. Wish the music was quieter in that scene.

In episode 12, during a conversation with the same friend about his daughter, voice cracks and I think he sheds like 2 tears.

Later in the same episode, holds back tears until she leaves the room and can't keep them at bay anymore. Not so much sobbing, but deeply emotional nonetheless.

In episode 14, which I will not spoil the reasons why he cries, he is emotional throughout most of the episode. He drunkenly sort of cries for a moment early in the episode. About midway through, he has a longish scene where he sobs on his childhood bed. No tears that you can really see, but again, very emotional. Later on, he sheds several several tears. You see them drip down the tip of his nose as he's looking down. Tremendous actor, you absolutely feel his pain

Hello friends,
Disclaimer: I'm a bit on the intoxicated side tonight. I hope that you wont take my words for drunken ramblings. I wohld like to share something with you, lovely strangers. We all connect on this one, strange, emotional thing, and in this moment, I can't think of anyone else I would like to connect with. 

Had a song stuck in my head- Nearer My God to Thee, the instrumental version from The Newton Brothers. I'm not a religious person. It's from midnight mass. Good show, btw. Anyway.

I have felt awfully lonely. It's my own design; protective and restorative, isolation from any form of socialization after coming to grips with a trauma a year and a half ago. I've been noticing at work just how much I needed a hug when others hugged me. My head would fall to their shoulder, my arms all tight around their waist. I realized tonight, I needed to cry. Not like, sob-cry but cry. So I listened to that song and held myself in a hug and cried against my chest.  It felt good. I didn't feel as lonely as I did the moment before. Each tear was for something new: how isolated I feel, how tired, in pain; how deeply I worry I will lose the people I love; how quickly my time is passing- so early to be getting older so fast. From the corners of my eyes in perfect warm trails down my cheeks, down through my neck, connecting at my chest. I feel so deeply calm now.

I know that this is something, deep down or perhaps not so deep down, that we connect to- crying. For pleasure or perhaps even just for emotional connection. In this moment of emotional intamacy I share not simply for satisfaction- the awareness that some random stranger you've never met, never seen, don't know the face or the voice of has cried just so you can picture it- I know that's part of it. We want to see, to picture, to connect. We want to feel close to something. Or at least I do. In this moment, I would like to feel less than alone.

In that vein, I ask you: when was the last time you cried? Melted

Crying Discussion » How can I find content? » January 16, 2024 7:59 pm

Ooh, okay, so, maybe I have too much time on my hands, but:

We've got the google search, your standard [insert name] crying/sobbing/emotional. If they work in TV, add "recap" after crying/sobbing/breaks down, anf if you know the character's name, add that too.

Tv Tropes also is a treasure trove. Countless catagories for tv, movies, plays, i think even music? Things like, inelegant blubbering (like when you cry so hard that your words don't make sense) manly tears, trying not to cry, crying hugs, etc. Lists of exampes from all forms of media, exactly how a scene transpires, with the name of the movie, episode, play, etc. Also, occasionally, if not listed under those sections, you can also check the "tearjerker" or the "heartwarming" sections as they can aldo contain exanples not provided under other sections.

Then there's whumpapedia. Like wikipedia, but for whump. Search an actor, a character, a type of crying, or any other whump for that matter. It also lists episodes and names of things. The only downside is that not EVERY actor is on it.

Tumblr. Emotional Whump, tears, sobbing, crying [insert desired gender], on the verge of tears, crying scene. All good tags.

Youtube. Can be tricky to narrow this one down. If you KNOW what youre looking for scenes are much easier to find.

Twitter, or "X" (i'm sorry, i still call it twitter.) Just search crying scene, or the name of a character than crying scene, name of an actor, you know the drill.

Even tiktok. But its harder to filter out. Same searches youd apply to anything.

And then, the least favorable and most time consuming option: find a show, movie, you name it, and literally just fast forward through it until someone cries. Doesn't always prove fruitful, but when it DOES its rewarding because there will sometimes be scenes not mentioned anywhere in the above option. This helps if you have a lot of streaming options. If you share streaming with others and are paranoid that they'll catch on (they wont, and

Crying Discussion » What is the film that made you cry the most? » December 24, 2023 6:20 am

Oh friend, this a truly great question to ask and boy do I have a few. Here's a list of the best ACTUAL cry movies. Notebook this, Up that NO ACTUALLY here are a few  movies (and shows) that I sobbed so hard at the end that I actually bruised my eyelids.

Our Friend. Listen, I thought, oh, movie about a woman with cancer, like, what an easy tearjerker, but no. No. Wept. Actually wept. Specifically when Dakota Johnson's character starts singing. Holy mcfuckin shit, batman.

Holding the Man. Another easy tearjerker, right? Love story spanning decades ultimatelt ending in tragedy. I cried so hard I almost threw up. 10/10.

Midnight Mass. I've watched it twice and both times the end has made me cry into my hands for at least ten minutes after the fact.

The Midnight Club. Now listen, I really did not think this one would get me. It geniunly didn't spark my interest at first. Episode 7 made me cry for about half the episode. The finale made me cry equally as hard.

The Haunting of Bly Manor. Last episode. God damn. That one may always get me. It's the music, the heartbreak, the finality of it.

The Place Beyond the Pines. That one scene with the theme music and the kid with the sunglasses his dad used to wear, then he's on the motorcycle- not so much sobbing but I definitely shed a tear or two.

The very end of Interstellar. Not so much the years of messages scene, though that is obviously emotional. It's just something about reunions, and not completely presents that does it. Again, more of a tear up.

Honey Boy didn't make ME cry but it was very well done. A lot of people around me did cry.

Oh man, I was a lot younger but Me Before You did actually make me sob. Holy shit. And I KNEW it was coming and I still cried.

Last one, hm, lets see... Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. It's very simple, but it's sweet and it's real. The scene where he shows her the movie and most certainly the end.

Totally worth a watch, all of these, and despite how they are described they

Right? Geniunely may have been one of the starting points for my love of emotional men. I feel like I've discovered a treasure trove of Fox's tearful scenes in Party of Five! He's a wonderful cry-actor. His whole face just breaks your heart!

Crying Discussion » Traits we share » December 13, 2023 5:00 am

I suppose I am just curious on the things that make us- besides our fantasies, desires, or simple points of intrigue that have tied us to this forum- so similar.

For instance, as I've mentioned before, I write- be it poetry or a scene in a book, when writing a tearful scene, beforehand I like to act it out, maybe just in my head but sometimes physically- how I imagine a certain actor or character would cry, I act it or feel it out myself. But before I wrote, simply when I was to daydream or fantasize I would do this too. I was wondering if I was alone in that.

All this to say, I'm simply wondering what reasoning, whether emotionally, psychologically, or physically, why we are the way we are.

For instance, when you see someone cry, get tearful, emote, what have you, what do you feel, and where do you feel it? Some, I'm sure, will pinpoint it to simple arousal but for some of us, it is a bit further layered than that.

Have you ever met someone like you, like us? Or do you perhaps see it on a spectrum, a bit in every person but a sliding scale of intensity?

I'm not sure why I'm wondering about this so much lately. Maybe I just feel a bit isolated, or maybe I just enjoy picking the brain of those so similar to me on something I kept secret for so long. I'd love to hear what you all have to say.
