The Phantom of the Opera


I just finished watching it. Such a wonderful movie. I know some of you wonder if I ever cry and what the heck could make me do such a girly thing. Well….. Phantom almost always makes me cry. You’ve Got Mail makes me cry. Casablanca makes me cry and so does Anne of Green Gables. *Sigh*

So there you have it. Lyndsay cries. Occasionally. And only when she’s by herself 😉 That’s my exhaustive list, what’s yours?.

  1. I suspected as much. I’ll make a list of my own over at my blog. My list is getting to be rather long as I think about it.

  2. Is it just movies or can it be books that make us cry too?

  3. Yes, of course you can put books too! But I have a feeling that it’s gonna be a looong list coming from you, Mrs Danna! 🙂

  4. Well, I responded without waiting for a reply~

    I cry in many movies (alone or with others – though I’d rather cry alone). I can’t name them all simply because I can’t remember them all. These are a few I can name: Anne of Green Gables (when Matthew looks adoringly at “his little girl” and when he and Marilla say goodbye to her at the train station, when Anne and Katherine with a “K” have their talk before the moon-lit window and later when Katherine tells her in the field at Green Gables, “Oh, Anne, this is the first place I’ve ever been to that feels like a real home. Hate has become such…”, when Anne and Gil stand on the bridge and she tells him that she doesn’t want…, “I just want YOU!”), Cast Away (when Tom Hanks makes the right decision to not allow Helen Hunt to choose him over her family), Hook, especially the end; To Kill a Mockingbird.

    Three books that makes me cry are Prince Caspian, The Horse and His Boy, and The Last Battle. I love the scene with Lucy in the woods where she tells Aslan that he is bigger than she remembered. I love when Shasta is walking over the mountain pass in the fog with Aslan beside him and the conversation between them. I love the last few pages of The Last Battle – I am overcome with joy and tears all at once.

  5. Not a long list, but a long explanations! Sorry

  6. Don’t be sorry, I asked for it! I could probably cry reading the Chronicles of Narnia too. Not sure which parts exactly, but I know that I get emotional reading certain parts.

  7. Now I really want to see this movie! When I was a teenager, the Broadway show Phantom of the Opera was performing in San Francisco. Many people I knew when to see it and loved it. We also played some of the music in band and I thought it was very beautiful. We’ll have to Netflix this one soon!

    As for movies that make me cry, where do I begin? I’m not sure I would have enough room in the comment box! Basically, if a movie is remotely sad or romantic or if a main character dies I probably cry! (Honestly, Ms. Danna, I’m surprised your list wasn’t longer).

    The movie that I actually sobbed watching was . . . (sorry, this is soooo cheesy) . . . Love Comes Softly (based on Janette Oke’s book). I also remember crying pretty continuously while watching Facing the Giants. I’m a sucker for emotion – even if it’s cheesy emotion!

    I think I simply just have too many emotions while watching tv/movies. That’s probably why I can’t watch scary movies. While some people get scared, I become terrified. It’s the same with sad. While some people get teary-eyed, I use half a box of tissue! 😉

  8. I’m so glad you like this movie, Lyndsay! I bought it at Blockbuster when it was like $5 used, and loved it! I’ve really been wanting to watch it again lately. I can’t remember if I cried or not, but I think I did. Yeah, I think I remember crying pretty hard, actually. I only do that when I watch things by myself. I try to tough it out when I watch with other people. Course, lately I’ve been so emotional, I even cry at commercials–no matter who’s around.

  9. I tear up at lots of movies, but only a few make me really cry.

    I bawled my eyes out at Summer of my German Soldier.

    I cry at Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea.

    I cry sometimes at various Jane Austen adaptations, sometimes at You’ve Got Mail.

    I cried really hard at something a few weeks ago, but I’ve forgotten what it was.

    Great post, Z. Great blog in general.

  10. I am a huge Phantom freak. I recently wrote about my horror upon discovering that Mr. Weber is writing a sequel. A sequel would absolutely crush its appeal.

    I’m not a crier myself. I’ve tried a few times but only a few tiny drops come out and it’s just as disappointing as if I’d never cried at all. I’ve always been jealous off those uninhibited people that can just wail away and let it all out.

  11. Yeah, I’m kinda that way too, which is why I wrote this post. I am known for my anger tendencies, not so much my softer side (which I do enjoy when on occasion does shine through)
