Emotion and Reflection Can't Post

For the past three weeks, I've been watching The Lord of the Rings film trilogy instalments. I just finished watching The Return of the King by myself. I've watched each film by myself for the first time (usually I watch them with mom, dad and brother, but I wanted to see what the films looked like on my portable DVD player, which has a flat screen. It looked great! )

Anyway, I found when watching the films by myself, I found that I was emotional, especially at the climax and end of The Return of the King.
(I'm actually rather emotional, but when I'm around others, even my own kin, I will not shed a tear.)
When I was by myself, I was shedding tears near the end. And after the film was over, and the credits rolled, I was murmuring to myself "Bravo, Bravissomo. Beautiful, so beautiful." as the tears came down. Blush I felt such a profound feeling. I always did when I've seen these films, but I guess when watching the films with others, I didn't get to reflect and release the feeling, ya know?

I have seen them before, several times before. But everytime, I was with people. This time, I saw them by myself, and found such emotional feelings. It was great. It was like a release. People can say what they want about the film adaptation, but if it got a reaction like that out of me, they did something right.
Am I the only one who has felt this way after seeing the films? At least by oneself? The novels give a similar, if not exact feeling, maybe even more, but since this was visual, perhaps that's why the tears were triggered.
