    I think crieing in a movie always needs the movie to evoke an experience in you, to touch you. I have watched the supposingly saddest movies and didnt cry just because everybody did. I need to personalize with the movie, it needs to evoke a feeling somehow create a connection to a real experience for me, otherwise I have troubles crieing.

    I regularily cry in movies, I am usually the first one to do that but then again I have to cry at the strangest of moments aswell. For example some intro movies of some science fiction movies move me and make me cry cause I've heard them so often they almost feel like family.

    I dont think you are strange if you dont cry, when you should; sometimes one is just not in the mood for crieing.

    Is There Something Wrong With My Emotions?
    Yes.

    The need to cry at very sad things and panicking when you dont.

    In really sad movies I can get pretty weepy, but sometimes... I don't cry either. I get this huge knot in my throat, like I don't think I could even talk, and my body becomes really tense and still, but no tears. I don't do it on purpose, like hold the tears back.. but I think it might be a defense mechanism. Especially if I'm hangen out with a bunch of ST's, that like to laugh at people on that intervention show. So no, I don't think you have anything wrong with your emotions, but would you really take the word of a forum anyhow? =P

    Thanks for all the feedback everyone

    I suppose, going into the movie with the expectation of being brought to tears is probably one primary reason, and that I was subconciously surpressing my true feelings. Maybe instead of actively seeking to evoke powerful emotions I should let them come naturally (which has almost happened in the past, as sad music during school concerts has almost brought me to tears.

    Also, I don't think my EQ is low, although I don't know how a person with a low EQ acts compared to a person with a high one.

    Yeah, I gotta say that, if we're talking Beauty & the Beast, Toy Story 3, Up, The Incredibles, or Wall-E... well, that's no protection against the tears.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don't quite remember, but I do think I felt upset as a young child when I watched that scene in The Land Before Time.
