New Remarkable Movies that Made Me Cry

3 New Remarkable Movies that Surprisingly Moved Me To Tears

I’m not someone who cries during movies a lot, but there are pretty remarkable movies that definitely have moved me to tears as of late. I’ve been to see quite a few films lately and these are the 3 that made me, quite literally, cry. That is, these 3 and the A Dog’s Purpose trailer which I bawl my way through every single time it comes on. If you don’t get teary eyed during that bit, you don’t have a soul. Just sayin’…

Collateral Beauty Movie - 3 New Remarkable Movies that Moved Me to Tears

Collateral Beauty (2016)

“Are you here to take me?” – Howard
“No, Howard. I’m here to take the F train with you.” – Brigitte/Death

Collateral Beauty is an amazing film that you should ABSOLUTELY watch! The basic plot centers around Will Smith’s character, Howard, who has recently lost his daughter. Previously in love with life, Howard finds that life no longer holds the same meaning for him without his daughter in it. With his previously successful marketing company on the chopping block, his co-workers hire a PI to spy on him in order to prove that he’s no longer competent and vote him off the board (in order to save their jobs). Through the PI, they discover that he’s written to Love, Death and Time. There’s a lot more to it, but I don’t want to ruin it so those are the basics! This is one of those movies that will make you reflect on your own life. It’s beautifully shot, shares so many wonderful insights about life and it’s meaning, and truly shares some stunning cinematography. It has so many quotable moments, great actors, and incredible scenes within it.

A Monster Calls Movie - 3 New Remarkable Movies that Moved Me to Tears

A Monster Calls (2016)

“You do not write your life with words…You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.”

A Monster Calls is a beautiful film about a boy going through adolescence whilst his mother struggles to fight cancer. Amidst all of it, the boy (Conor) begins to see a monster each night at 12:07 AM. The monster comes in the form of a tree he can see from his window and tells him a story each night that also includes a kind of lesson attached to it. It’s beautifully shot, the effects are magnificent, and I thought I would enjoy the whimsical nature of the story. More than that, I found myself holding back literal sobs in the movie theater during this film. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I, too, have felt like an invisible, insignificant, and powerless child. Perhaps it won’t hit everyone as hard as it did me, but it’s a great movie nonetheless and people with children should go see this one with them!

Arrival Movie - 3 New Remarkable Movies that Moved Me to Tears

Arrival (2016)

“Why don’t we talk to them before we start throwing math problems at them?”

Watching Arrival and enjoying it came as a total surprise to me. It’s one of those films that you can watch the trailer for and assume it’s about one topic, go watch it, and then realize that it’s totally and absolutely NOT about what you think it’s about. The story focuses on linguist expert, Dr Louise Banks, who is called in to communicate with the newly arrived aliens. I don’t want to even say more than that because I don’t want to ruin anything. All you need to know is that it’s more drama than alien thriller. Go watch it. It’s an incredibly moving experience about what it means to be human.  And yes, I cried. A lot. Especially at the end when it hit me!

    Tianna, these are wonderful movie suggestions. I would probably cry through them all as well especially since I cry through A Dog’s Purpose trailer every time I see it, too! Thanks for sharing and linking up with me On the Edge.

      thanks Shelbee! I hope you enjoy them when you watch them! That trailer seriously kills me! Did you hear the awful way they treated one of the dogs during filming though? I don’t think I’ll be watching it after seeing that video.

    Sadly, I don’t watch too many movies in the theatre, but I always love to hear reviews when they come to the RedBox. I will put these on my list! Thanks for sharing at the Wednesday Showcase Party.

    I want to see all of these movies! I am normally not a crier either, but I have definitely teared up at ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ trailer, and most recently sobbed like a baby during ‘Lion’. So good!
    Love this post and certainly going to check these out.

    xx, Elise
