for some reason "AI" got to me bad , but i watched it when it came out , at the time i hadnt seen my faimly in 4 years so maybe that had something to do with it


"shawshank redemtion" comes close to chokeing me up when the old man discovers he cant make it in the outside

outside that the only other time is when "elenore" gets crushed in gone in 60 seconds

fast and furious when the eclipse got blown up. at the time i owned an eclipse that look just like it (i built it before the movie came out and quickly changed it after the movie came out)

other than that, it would be armegedon, rudy (sometimes but not in a sad way), field of dreams, and backdraft when the guys brother dies. and when i was little i cried when goose dies on top gun :crying:

"shawshank redemtion"

Yep that movie brings a tear to my eye everytime I watch it.....I love the ending. One of my all time favorite movies.

"What Dreams may come" Is pretty sad too

The 2000 Ravens NFL Films Super Bowl movie... and HEAT. I hate the end of that movie. Why did he have to go back? Very Sad.

"The Natural," when Roy Hobbs hits the home run and blows the lights out, and he's rounding the bases with the sparks falling down, and they're playing that music, the ball keeps on sailing upward, and finally Roy's son catches it in a wheatfield in Iowa.

Passion of the Christ.

Godfather 3 ----the very last scene. Sooo alone... Sooo far away from everything he's ever known...

gone in 60 secons with elenore :crying:

The most I've ever teared in a movie was the Passion of Christ. As a Muslim, we revere Jesus (pbuh), and do not believe he was in fact crucified, nor did he die for anyone sins. He was a very important Prophet. Hope this doesn't spin off to a religious debate where everyone leaves a "winner" and is angry at each other.

Star Trek II, when Spock died I was sad for the first time, and when the enterprise blew up in star trek III.

I don't cry. Old Yeller, didnt phase me, neither did Homeward Bound. And I'm a pet person. Its a Wonderful Life made me gag. And the Green Mile?... People cried at Green Mile? Even Gone in 60 Seconds didnt do it...

You probably mean resurrected. He was definitely crucified, I never heard any disputes about that.

(whatever you believe, it's okay, I'm not trying to debate)

According to Islam, Jesus was not killed, nor was he resurrected and therefore did not die for anyones sins. In Christianity I believe it would be fair to say that Christ is the focal point, while in Islam the Qur'an (Islams holy book) is the focal point. The Qur'an claims divinity, Mohammed (pbuh) did not. That's the parallel to work with. The Prophets (pubt) were Messengers and preached Allah's will. Allah literally translates from Arabic to English as "The God", and I use the terms interchangably, I hope that doesn't offend anyone.

Just so ya'll know, I have no problem answering questions about Islam and I do not mind having civil religious discussions.

It was common practice as usual for the Romans to crucify thousands of Christians, why would a man named Jesus be exempt?

I take it "Allah" is just another name for GOD, possibly the same one?

Spock

I'd also like to say that I'm not here to challenge anyones belief on the matter nor is it my effort to convert.


Because God saved Jesus(pbuh) and did not allow him to be crucified.

And yes, as I said, Allah literally translates to "The God" denoting Gods Oneness.

Don't worry Spock, I respect you, and you are brave for admitting that in these politically charged times. You are a good person, that I know.

what is "(pbuh)"

How would you compare the Koran to the Holy Bible? If we are all God's children, why do the radical Muslems always opt for revenge instead of "turning the other cheek?" Why don't they respect life? I mean, they don't even respect their own life by commitiing suicide bombings?

Spock

PBUH- Peace be upon Him, it's something Muslims say aloud when they say a Prophets name so I guess it has just turned into the internet lingo of it lol.

The Qur'an would be compared to the Bible? As the third book giving the same message. The Qur'an says that the Bible and Torah have been corrupted by mankind, and that it is the last book to be sent down. And Mohammed (pbuh) is the last Prophet. I find among some Muslims a certain arrogance that comes with having "the last religion" or "the perfect book" when they do not realise that the three monotheistic religions and their books all share common ancestry and have the same stories.

That's one of the hardest questions to answer as a Muslim. Do these Muslims who blow themselves up go to heaven is the theological question that I pose to myself. In my understanding, they do not. 1. They killed themselves. 2. They killed innocent people. Two things that are strictly spoken against in the Qur'an.
Why do they do it? Again in my understanding, a lack of education, secular and religious which allow them to be brainwashed by radicals. And if they are educated and knowledgeable, then the question to ask is "What would drive someone to do this?" Pure hatred? Desperate living conditions? What kind of circumstances make people do this?

:coolgleam Only movie I ever cried at was "Brian's Song", but then I was kid at the time. I figure that regardless of what happens on the screen, it's just a movie and it isn't real. The film critic class in college sorta ruined me. :D

Just curious, according to Islam, how did Jesus die?

Spock

Never "died" in the human understanding of biological death, natural or artificial. Jesus (pbuh) was taken up to Heaven and was not allowed to be crucified.

wait, jesus was God in the flesh, and he suffered and died as a man. His soul didn't die, but his body did. His body was later ressurected to heaven... right? i'm not saying i'm correct, i'm suggesting?!

now, back on topic... i must be a weenie b/c "50 first dates" was pretty sad...approaching a wence in the eye.

The end of Saving Private Ryan always gets to me, as most of them get killed one by one and when Tom Hanks dies in Matt Damon's arms. War movies always stir up some kind of emotion or inspiration in me.

Actually, the beginning gets to me more, when he is walking through the cemetary and salutes.

Also, Superman (1977) when Glen Ford (his father) has a heart attack. It just reminds us that anything can happen when you least expect it.

spock, where are you oringally from? I am also muslim. but about this thread, a scene that always chokes me is at the end of Terminator 2, when the terminator has to go, but he has been a protoector, almost a father to john throughout the last few days or thier ordeal, and john starts crying because he dosnt want him to go, but the terminator learns why john is crying, because earlier he couldnt not understand why humans cried. he realizes that human life is important and that he has to go, and when john connor orderes him not to go, the termiantor overrides his order. almost like he became more human in a way through human contact. then they had all the sad theme music playing...so yea that scene always chokes me up.

Well, I dont know if this thread applies to me, cuz I'm neither grown, nor a man, and I cry like a baby at almost every movie I see. But the one that always hits me the hardest is Braveheart. Oh, man, when he's dying, and he sees his wife's face in the crowds... 'scuse me, I have something in my eye.:crying:
