Default Re: HONEST Answers Only... Did You Cry? (SPOILERS)

Anyone who didn't shed a tear when...

- Alfred told Bruce he had to leave, and he cared for him since he first heard his cries echo through the house
- Gordon remembered putting the coat around Bruce and said, "Bruce Wayne"
- the bomb went off
- Bruce's grave was shown
- Alfred apologized tearfully to Thomas and Martha
- the memorial statue was unveiled

is a soulless monster.

It was really hard for me not to cry, I lost it when Alfred did. From then on, I was just crying the whole way through. Blake finding the cave, turning on the lamp, bats flying towards him. It got me real good.

Honestly it was the happy moments that got me to shed a few tears.

1. Wayne manor dedicated to the orphans
2. Gordon's pure elation at the fixed bat signal

Default "I got dust in my eye"... TDK Trilogy scenes that made you cry

So let's see which scenes made you shed a tear once or twice, or everytime you watch them.

Surprisingly, for me, there have been only two scenes that brought a tear to my eye, and usually do in repeated viewings:

TDK: During the "You'll hunt me, you'll condemn me..." speech until Batman sets off running away.

TDKR: Again, during a Batman & Gordon moment, where Batman says "A hero can be anyone..." until the flashback from BB.

Those are the two moments where I got really emotional and couldn't help it. So what's yours?

Oh no. Someone got emotional at a film.

Must be such a problem for you.

God forbid someone gets emotionally attached to a set of characters in any form of fiction, let alone film

BB: The Waynes Murder (especially when Alfred talks to Young Bruce).
Why Do We Fall?

TDK: The Ending

TDKR: Any scene with Alfred makes me sad.

This is what we're anonymous for, right?

I never saw Batman Begins in theaters. I didn't become a Batman fan until it was on DVD. Regardless, seeing Batman Begins in a multiplex for the first time was all kinds of awesome, and I had avoided watching it (along with The Dark Knight) for over a year because I knew I'd be doing a marathon.

And even though it's always been one of my favorite scenes, the "Why Do We Fall?" exchange after Wayne Manor goes up in flames hit me hard this time. I think a lot of it has to do with how much that line has meant to me personally lately, but damn.

Anyway, none during The Dark Knight. Got misty a few times during The Dark Knight Rises, but they're probably the same moments as everyone else who did: Alfred's confession, the identity reveal to Gordon, Alfred apologizing to Thomas' and Martha's tombstones, and Bruce at the end.

I guess Alfred just strikes a chord with me.

I feel the same, even with TDK. For me, I think the music along with the dialogue at the end of TDK did it for me. All of your TDKR moments were the moments that I teared up at as well.

I love how in this movie, for the first time, we had an Alfred who made an effort to get Bruce to stop being Batman. Instead of just being willing to constantly bandage him up only to have him go back out and incur more damage to his body. Especially at this point where his body was in the state that it was in. Alfred was put in charge of taking care of Bruce's life and he knew this was not possible so long as Bruce continued to be Batman, again, especially since his body had so deteriorated at that point.

Such a powerful scene and wonderfully acted by both Bale and Caine.

Alfred telling Bruce the truth about Rachel's letter. The way Michael Caine seems short of breathe in anticipation of revealing such a huge secret really made me feel for him. Of course the "I failed you." Scene was very tough too. Most of what you all mentioned so far I'm in with too.

You're in denial. It was a hugely emotional film for some; myself included.

TDKR

Alfred saying
"I never wanted you to come back to Gotham, I always knew there was nothing for you here, but pain.. and tragedy"

and then the crack in his voice, and tears in his eyes when he says

"and I wanted something more for you.... than that.."

thence walks away, and looks back tearfully with

"I still do."

this, in may ways seemed similar to the Scene in Begins where he says

"I wouldn't presume to tell you what to do with your past Sir, just know that there are those of us.. who care about what you do with your future..."

Bruce: haven't given up on me yet?

Alfred: "NEVAHHHHHHHHHH"

I don't even have to say much about the Alfred leaving scene...

Alfred: "I know what this means"
Bruce: What does this mean?
Alfred: "Your hatred.... etc etc...but it might mean... saving your life"

wow.. something about the way bruce tip toes up the stairs quietly... very powerful.

Of course the "I've failed you" scene again...

I remember reading somewhere /or maybe it was the 13 minute featurette, where Nolan said they knew the "Alfred leaving scene" was going to be a hugely emotional scene, but none was prepared for the performance Michael Caine brought to that scene.

supposedly just about everyone was wiping away tears at that point.

Bruce "Rising" from the prison.

Don't know why, I still feel this is related to the title,but the courage he showed, and the pause at the platform, and the bats, and the calm, "I'm ready for this, and I accept the results" face he had on before he made the jump, coupled with the old doctor joining in the cheers, the "belief" of the prisoners, and their joy when he made the jump...

this was almost too much for me.
with multiple viewings... I still am moved each time I see him climbing out and the camera pans to the beautiful cinematography...

incredible.. that does it for me.

even the "He needs you... He needs the batman..." speech from JGL...
the look of despair and turmoil on Bruce's face while JGL shares his story....

"everyone understands...."

moving.

The final montage gets me as well, when they're playing "Rise"
and we see Batman pause before we see the 5 second timer

[did anyone note that the bomb is actually smoking a little bit when Batman flies it out over the bay?]

I feel he's contemplating going out with the bomb, but obviously he chooses to live]

but the montage, JGL's face says it all, we see everyone rejoicing because the explosion was far enough [presumably] not to vaporize gotham, but on JGL's face it's bittersweet..

it's like... where's my friend? where's Batman?
I know everyone's happy, but I just lost someone...

[almost like a the end of TDK when Two Face says, why was I the only one who lost everything]

the montage, with The Grave Scene, the way Fox taps Alfred on the shoulder, the way Gordon reads the Eulogy, The way Fox says... I just want to know what I could have done... even he has tears in his eyes...[didn't notice this right away]

but for some reason, when Alfred is drinking his "Ferny BRANKAH" lol.
and sees Bruce, cut to Bruce acknowledging him, they hold their gaze just long enough to tug at your heart,

and all I could think of was the Gordon's speech at Wayne Manor [fabulous speech by the Mayor by the way] when he said

"...maybe for now, all I should say about the death of Harvey Dent is this.... it has not been for nothing."

Cut to Bruce in blue hinge on top of a building lurking in the dark.

yeah.... first few times I had to hide my tears a little...
but the scene that gets me every time [even after the 11th viewing] is Alfred's shaky "I wanted something more for you than that....I still do"


TDK
might ave to watch this again, it's been a few weeks, but the only scene I can remember was again, Bruce and Alfred after Rachel's death....

the blue tinged scene where Alfred hides Rachel's letter...

Bruce: ... and I let that murdering psychopath blow him half to hell"
Alfred: ..Which is why for now, they're going to have to make do with you"


Begins:

This one's easy...
the scene I always have on repeat is chapter 5 on the Blu-Ray
where Alfred walks in on a grieving Bruce who's just waved to Rachel from the window after the funeral

Alfred: "I thought I might prepare a little SUPPAAAHHHH"
Bruce keeps staring out the window
Alfred turns to leave
Alfred:Very well
Bruce: Alfred
Alfred turns back
Alfred:Yes Master Bruce?
Bruce: It was my fault Alfred, I made them leave the theatre, If I hadn't gotten scared
Alfred: Oh nooo no no. It was nothing that you did. It was him, and him alone..
Alfred: Do you understand?
Bruce: I miss them Alfred...I miss them so much
Alfred:So do I master Bruce, So do I.

.. forgot to add.....

"Things are worse than EVURRRRR"
(joking)

the shot where bruce is crying over the his dead parents just after they've been shot is heartbreaking...
and of course in TDKR when Bruce says his "A hero can be anyone" speech...

makes you wonder whether part of the reason he's got such a soft spot for Gordon and helped him through the years is because of the kindness he showed him the night his parents got murdered.

I'm coming up with a blank on the BB and TDK scenes that choked me up so I'll list the TDKR scenes for now:

- Bruce/Alfred confrontation scene that ended with "goodbye Alfred".
- Gordon reading A Tale of Two Cities at Bruce's grave that ended with Alfred crying.
- Cafe scene

So I guess scenes that involved Alfred and Bruce.

When Batman flys out over the bay and the bomb detonated. The music is what got me. It's typical music for that type of moment, but it's not just any movie when you see Batman disappear forever in a mushroom cloud
