8. A Walk to Remember:
Call me crazy, but ‘A Walk to Remember’ is definitely one Hollywood movie that will make anybody cry. Not too many Jamies (Mandy Moore) subsist who can systematically change the wasted Landons (Shane West) of this world to such a level. Next, all hell breaks loose when Landons find that Jamie has terminal leukemia and she can’t survive too long. He then takes it on himself to ensure that Jamie enjoys her last days as much as she can. Landon’s pain and his endeavors are really tearing-jerking. A beautiful plain film with great tracks from Switchfoot like “You” and ‘I Dare You To Move’, A Walk to Remember is simply one movie that is bound to make you cry.

The Hollywood movie takes audiences from Forrest’s early years to later ones, where misfortune and heartbreak leave their stain. One of the great Tom Hanks movie, Forrest Gump is full of touching lines by the lead character and the tears assembled in the eyes flows down by the end of the movie, when Forrest asks Jennie whether his son is smart or like him?
