View Full Version : Do you do this, too?

03-29-2006, 07:13 PM
I notice when I watch movies that when an animal, whether its a dog, cat, horse or any animal gets killed, I want to cry. I know it's just a movie.... the weird thing is that I rarely cry when people die in movies but do when animals die. Anyone else?

I hate it when that happens, especially when someone kills an animal in a movie! Even thought I know it didn't really happen. :(

Not only do I want to cry but more often than not I do cry.

Yeah.. it's all so sad. I just don't like the though of any animal being killed even if it's fake.

I always cry more in movies when an animal dies too. It's definiatly not that I don't like people are don't care that they die, I often cry when they die too, but not nearly as much or emotionally as when it's an animal. When Denny died on that mountain in Return to Snowy River I cried like a baby.

At funerals, I never cry.. I don't know why. It's not like I try not to cry..

But sending Wolfie the bridge, I cried.. I don't know.

It is weird.

When I went to see 8 Below, everytime it switched back to the dogs, I was literally BAWLING my eyes out.. say if it were people that were deserted, I wouldn't have cried when they were dieing off.

Yeah, I do sometimes. I still cry at the end of Turner & Hooch. :o

I don't cry, but I do feel sad. I think it's perfectly normal, I mean, animals are alive too, so why should they're loss of life be any different to a person's? But usually I'm OK about it, after a while I stop thinking about it and I know it's not real. The only real exception to this was when I watched Two Brothers. When the cubs' dad got shot, I felt sad, but also angry because that really does go on in the world.

On my history text-book that we just got today at school, there is an artists impression of a battlescene. In this scene is a horse killed in battle. I felt like burning the book!!!! But I just calm down and realise it's just a drawing:rolleyes:

I do that too.

Actually I don't watch movies that are about animals, even if it's a 'happy' movie. I always find something in the movie that upsets me, even if it's something as little as feeding the dog pedigree. I'll dwell on it and it will ruin the movie for me, so I just don't watch them.

Of corse even movie that aren't about animals often have animals in them. I get really upset when something happens to any animal in a movie.

Im not the crying type of person. but i do sometimes get a huge lump in my throat and i want too though.
and yes.. im like JenBKR... Turner and Hooch is VERY hard not to cry in.

i just have this weird thing about people seeing me cry...

That was the same with me!! I was really emotional in that movie... I don't actually cry but I get tears in my eyes.

I sure do and have done it since I was a little kid. I've always been an animal lover.

03-31-2006, 01:15 PM
:) Oh yes I can not stand to watch & usally change channel real quick.. I am so bad that if I am watching animal planet & a lion is killing his meal = I will change the channel..

03-31-2006, 02:11 PM
oh, i do it too. i hate it even more when they show you what happends to them. :(

03-31-2006, 02:15 PM
I can't even watch animal movies, but if it's about people I don't even cry. Glad to know some other people feel that way because I was starting to feel like I was insensitive

Lol...on the Lion King, I ALWAYS cried when Mufasa died. And on Homeward Bound, i ALWAYS cried when Shadow fell under the train tracks. I probably wouldn't cry if I saw those movies today though. Its not that hard to make me cry while watching a movie though. I don't know, its weird. I can cry over a LOT. Like if I think of something sad, and then think for a while I'll start to get teary and all. A lot of things do that, especially songs.

I know what your saying. A movie I picked up cheap whilst shoping called "Fluke", looked like a fun family type movie. Well by the end both Carole and I were streaming buckets. We are kind of wary what we watch now.

I can't even watch animal movies
I'm glad I'm not the only one. Most people just assume because I love animals I must also love watching movies about them. I don't.

I bawl like a baby when it comes to animals!
My husband doesn't let me watch Animal Cops becuase I cry so hard Buddy gets upset and paces all around the house (more than normal :o )
I have to wait till 8 Below comes out on DVD because I wouldn't be able to see it in a movie theater. (the peolpe would have to escort me out because of my uncontrollable bawling) Once I found out the entire story behind 8 Below, I knew that would be one I'd have to watch by myself. :o
My all time break down movie is Dances With Wolves. OMG!!!!

I'm not too much of a crying person but i get a lot more sad when i see animals die than humans. I remember one time i was watching one of those humane society shows and it was showing this little puppy they were putting down and i started crying. Those shows are so sad because i know it is actually real where as in movies i know its not real. Probably if i were to watch one of those shows i probably would start crying or come close to crying. Also when they show the puppies or dogs no one wants its so heartbreaking. :(

Same with me. It never happens with human videos, though. It's quite weird... ;)
