20 Movies That Even Real Men Cry At

"Movies do an amazing job tugging at your heart strings and introducing memorable characters in your life. By the time the movie ends, you care so deeply for them. When they experience pain, tragedy or even triumph, it stabs you right in the heart.

Women cry at movies all the time, but society tells us that boys don’t cry. Men are supposed to be strong and never show the emotions that make them look weak, but if you are like me, I cry at movies and I know you do to. It’s ok. It’s not a sign of weakness, but rather that you have a heart. Most tearful scenes involve the death of a loved one, a sacrifice for the betterment of others or having to say good bye.

So grab your tissues and check out twenty movies (in no particular order) that will make you cry like a little girl. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone."- Craig Kandiko of Geekenstein.com (Armageddon, Braveheart, Culture, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Forrest Gump, Good Will Hunting, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Dark Knight Rises, The Lion King, Top Gun, Toy Story 3)

Some really bad ones on this list. Dark Knight Rises? Really? Come on. Several others on there that are pretty ridiculous. And any list like this that leaves off Old Yeller is practically an automatic fail, I think. That and Brian's Song are the quintessential tearjerkers for men.
