Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘T’ IS FOR *T*HE *T*OP *T*EN “WEEPIES” FOR MEN - MOVIES, THAT IS!

According to a recent poll, the top ten weepies of all time for men are:
1.TOY STORY 3 (above)
This from Disney Pixar, has apparently been making grown men cry more than ever before. The others are:
2. The Green Mile (the giant, John Coffey, below)
3. Gladiator (Russell Crowe in his pre-fighting period)
4. Blade Runner
5. Up 6. The Shawshank Redemption
7. Terminator 2 (Arnie – future Governor of California)
8. Field Of Dreams (Kevin Costner)
9. Transformers – The Movie
10. Saving Private Ryan (Vin Diesel scene)
Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who visited or commented. Have a great weekend!
And see you again for Ruby Tuesday!

While my guy has seen all of these, he tends to get weepy at the same movies that make me cry. He's a wonderful softie.

Mary said...

Toy Story is a mystery to me on this list. I have to say I boo hooed during Green Mile & my husband's favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption, but he's not a crier :-)

Judie said...

Nora, Bladerunner is by far the absolute best! The music by Vangelis is my most favorite sound track.

Next comes The Green Mile. I have seen it about 5 times.

Then Shawshank Redemmption--I've seen that one 3 times.

Dead Man Walking is also an excellent film, as is Mystic River. Rod has his favorites, too. Three Weddings and a Funeral,
and Love Actually are two of his favorites.

Great post, Nora!

I love lots of these. I be Field of Dreams would make my husband cry.

Michelle said...

Fantastic post!

Jan said...

They're my choices too! :D

Jo said...

several of these made me cry .... gotta say after especially saving private ryan ... shawshank is a close second along with the green mile.

Ames said...

Hummm maybe saving Private Ryan might make my husband tear up, but Old Yeller sends him out of the room and I can hear him blowing his nose. So, yeah I would have to say Old Yeller. Anything with dogs!~Ames

House Revivals said...

My husband has seen and enjoyed most of these, but I'm not sure any of them made him weepy -- I sure got weepy, though!

Jackie said...

Men don't cry . They have no feelings at all . Anyway I've never seen Green Mile but Gladiator made me cry and Shawshank? I can't remember - I think it did around the end of the movie and i think it is a great movie . All movies that make me cry are great imo. I couldn't stop crying in My Name is Khan or in Million Dollar Baby .

Stef said...

It's funny because Hubs always seems to cry in football movies. "The Blind Side" had him crying.

Also, Big Foot. Yeah, he's weird. But sweet. Hubs, not Big Foot.

myorii said...

Yea, Toy Story 3 seems to have that one scene in the end that makes a lot of people cry. So many of the movies in that list are so masculine. I'm a little puzzled about the Transformers movie one though.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

It always cracks me up when I look over and see the husband has gotten caught up in one of my "girlie" movies.

Mike said...

Sme great movies there- for men & women!

Holly said...

Loved Gladiator-made me cry too! Sigh

Donnie said...

Your Top Ten were great. I cried at quite a few of those too.

tania said...

Saving Private Ryan for me - if not for him!Interesting post.

gabe said...

my man likes to watch Saving Private Ryan and I just can't watch it. . .too much for me!

Jenny said...

I love the movie UP! If you know the producer of it, I totally have a script I'd like them to read!

This was such a terrific link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "T".

I think I need to revisit some of these movies!

Thanks for linking up.

Dear Nora and Lola,

What a great list of movies and I have seen most of them and many have made me bring out the tissues.

Have a wonderful weekend

Susan said...

Armageddon, always gets my husband at the end when bruce is talking to liv...he always manages to walk out of the room.

Good post!

nothing profound said...

Some wonderful movies here, but I'm an old softie. Classics from the 40s and 50s are the ones that make me weep.

Haute World said...

Some of the movies on this list are puzzling. Why would anyone cry during Transformers or Terminator? I must be missing something. My husband has seen most of these and the only one that forced tears from him was 'Up'. Hope you had a lovely weekend!
