I have cried countless times watching different films. I try my best not to cry, especially when I am with someone else. The funny thing is that I usually cry more over animated films rather than actual films. For example, I remember bawling over Toy Story 3 while I was on vacation on a beach.
I was eating and crying at the same time when Woody was given away. I also cried recently when I watched Coco. The scene when Coco seems to be forgetting her father and when she finally remembered, made me cry so hard that my eyes were very inflamed after. I feel that this is the reason why I would rather watch from streaming apps as compared to watching in a movie house.
Of course, I have cried while watching a film. I always get a little sappy when I am watching a movie that is not necessarily intended to be sad, but the movie has to have an element of sadness to it. Usually, I don’t cry at the romantic movies because those are silly usually and there is nothing really to cry about it. When I see people crying at these types of movies, I usually roll my eyes, but they probably roll their eyes at me at the movies that I cry at.
I cry at the movies when a person is truly upset at something happening like their child dies or something really bad happens. Then I will cry at that.
