Generally speaking, I don’t like to watch sad movies. I know that’s sad in itself but I can’t bear the heartache, you know? There are certain movies I refuse to watch a second time because of the weepiness content - Pearl Harbour, Titanic, E.T are just a few.
If it’s a movie that has sad scenes but a happy ending, then that’s great. I’m happy. But if it’s just sad, then why? Isn’t the world sad enough as it is? I want to be uplifted, inspired, euphoric (ok, maybe that last one is a bit much). But this is precisely why I tend to write books with happy endings… I want my readers to feel the same, you know?
How about you? Are you a cry baby when it comes to movies? TV? Which ones make you sob into your tissue?
