“Something for the weekend Sir?”

Well it’s the weekend and it’s time for the soundtrack of the weekend of course! I’ve chosen The Green Mile as I’ve had a few requests for it recently ( The Green Mile ManCry review here) . Superb film and superb soundtrack. So make a coffee (no pun intended) , put your feet up and treat yourself to a little “me” time. Enjoy the weekend!

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving weeekend to all you Americans. When you go around the table to say all the things you are grateful for, someone mention “ManCry”.  Then you can argue over which film makes you cry the most.  Thanks in advance!

 

I also came across this, struggled not to cry – the choice of music works suprisingly well – Titanic! *spoiler* contains execution scene (hmmmmmmmm)

Rocky Balboa Montage – The Man, The Myth

This is for anyone who is sitting in the office  feeling fat or has just over eaten like me – Best Rocky montage ever. I just smiled for 5 min and 18 seconds. Superb montage. I know this isn’t crying material (unless you count the 700 + hits to the face! ) but as you should know by now, Stallone is very popular here on ManCry! He’s number one in the Hall of Fame for a reason you know!

Is it just me or after watching this, you just want to go outside and grab the nearest punk, block with your face about 48 times then slowly get up and say ” I didn’t hear no BELL!”  (.……. I thought so….)

 

New Hall of Fame member anyone? 🙂

This was on TV last night, so I watched it again….. and cried. Great film indeed. I think the reason it gets you is because it’s a comedy and then by the end of the film, you’re wiping tears away. If you haven’t seen it, the trailer says it all – a workaholic gets a remote that can control his life.  Great film with excellent scenes with the grandad/father and son. hmmmmm

Memorable film quote :

Will you still love me in the morning?
Forever and ever, babe.

ManCry star rating ******** 8/10

 

*Spoilers*  The last time he saw his father and the ending rain scene below – enjoy them while they last.

 

Bonus – Henry Winkler back in the day as “The Fonz” on Happy Days – CLASSIC stuff

 

Soundtrack of the Weekend – Legends of the Fall

“Something for the weekend Sir?” It’s the weekend and it’s time for some music. Beautiful piece of music here from Legends of the fall. (Click here for the trailer on ManCry if you haven’t seen it already). Great music to a great film. Any film where it ends with a man fighting a bear is an instant winner in my book. I just laugh picturing the stunt double’s list of things to do that day: (presume Brad Pitt didn’t have the balls to do it himself)

1. Drop kids off at school

2. Do the shopping

3. Fight a Bear

I must admit the only thing that ruined the film for me was my wife saying “ohhhh Brad Pitt looks hot” ,when he returns riding his horse with long wavy hair. In hindsight, I thought of many defensive and creative replies such as

1. I bet he can’t even ride a horse properly

2. That’s fake hair

3. I can do that

Sadly none of these thoughts occurred to me at the time, so I just said the first thing I thought of:

“Looks a bit gay if you ask me”

……….anyway, enjoy the weekend!

P.S. Just found the film ending where the brother saves the day hmmmmmmm . Enjoy it before it’s taken down. Superb music – shivers down the spine

Big Fish (2003)

This film really made cry at the end. If you haven’t seen it you really should. The story is about a son trying to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories and myths his father told him about himself. The film has a great cast (McGregor, Finney, Crudop to name a few ) and can be a bit unbelievable – but that’s the point of it. The film comes together nicely at the end- in an unforgetable scene with his father.  Perhaps the fact that I enjoy fishing made me enjoy the ending even more. Either way , it’s a great film.

Memorable film quote

“There are some fish that cannot be caught. It’s not that they’re faster or stronger than other fish. They’re just touched by something extra.” ( hmmmmmmm )

ManCry star rating ******* 7/10

 

**Spoiler** Film ending – River scene
