but I laughed instead.
Since my Top Ten Tear Jerker list got a lot of you talking, I thought I needed to do this follow-up. You should be aware by now that I'm a huge snotty wreck when it comes to many, many movies. Now, on the contrary, here are two movies to which I found myself laughing instead of crying at the most pivotal moments. This is HUGE considering I cry at frickin' everything. Kudos to the lame acting and/or special effects that otherwise ruined intense moments.
1. Romeo + Juliet, 1996
OK, so I completely related to the whole 'desperate forbidden love' thing; oh do I ever! I love this movie. Love the manic-ness of it all, thanks to Baz Luhrmann's acid tripped interpretation of Shakespeare, BUT that final scene... when Claire Danes did that little yelp and made her face scrunch up all stupid-like, I laughed. I should have been a sobbing mess, but instead, I laughed. Dear Claire, You were dumb. That is all.
