There are far too many movies that brought tears to my eyes to post them all here!
Blessings on thee, little man,
barefoot boy with cheeks of tan...
Outward sunshine; inward joy,
Blessings on thee, barefoot boy! :-D

When Giant Robot went up into space with that Squid Dude to save the world from blowing up. I put 2 and 2 together and realized that my Mom could go away too...
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

The first movie to make me tear up...Still does.
And it's a dang Disney flick.
Robin Hood...You know, the one with the Fox as Robin? Yeah...He jumps off of a tower into the moat, arrows flying after him. His hat floats up. Then there is this stupid little kid rabbit standing on the shore with Little John the bear.
Just looking into the water, lower lip trembling.
Stupid little cartoon rabbit gets me every time.


For some reason, my daughter cried at the end of Robin Hood every single time we ran it! I'm talking about the wedding scene with Robin and Marion going off to do that "happy ever after" thing. She'd start welling up and crying her heart out. (Mind you, she would always make up put it back on a few days later!)

Oodalalie!

Actually, at the end of "The Iron Giant," when IG takes off to confront the missile and you hear the kids voice saying; "You can be anything you want." He murmers "Superman!" just before hitting the missile! First few times, I blubbered!

The end of "The Champ" always tears me up no matter how many times I watch it. "Saving Private Ryan"...the end, welled up my eyes. My, what a movie that is, one of my all time favorites.

Just recently, I got hold of "Glory" on DVD. Hadn't seen it since I saw it at the cinema, years ago. Same reaction towards the end, though - tears down my cheeks...

Along the same track, I know its not a movie per se, but Ken Burns' TV Series "The American Civil War" has lots of those moments for me.
And I'm not even an American...

Brian's Song. When Billy Dee Williams is giving his speech.

Just listening to that music will get me blubbering.

Oh God yeah. For a made for TV movie, this one takes the cake. When Billy Dee says "I love Brian Piccolo"...Forget about it.

"Rudy" is another good football movie. When he finally gets the letter that says he's been accepted, and he's half crying and says "Oh Thank God". That'll get you where you live.

I cry at everything. I'm easy.

Just in the past two years:

Natalie Portman's amazing scene with Hugo Weaving in "V for Vendetta" when she emerges from prison and confronts him. This film is packed with effects, but the big emotional moment is two people, talking.

"The Illusionist" - love, beauty, tragedy, love finding a way - the fragile beauty of it all...

"Memoirs of a Geisha" - pretty hard hitting all around, but her stage debut, walking through the fake snow in the imagined wind with the parasol, as the audience of men realize that they are seeing something extraordinary - fragile beauty again...

Howl's Moving Castle! Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke too! I think that it's that fragile beauty thing again...

Yours,

Paul

Many for me, but one that comes to mind is the last scene from the Elephant Man, with John Hurt. Actually , MANY scenes from that movie got me right in my "getter."

So right Daff! Elephant Man had some beautiful moments. I had not thought of that film in a while. I loved all those old circus scenes...too cool.

I'll cry at a lot of things. Top of the list is Cinema Paradiso when Salvatore returns and sees how his village has changed so much decades later. The music now sets me off even before the scene even begins. Sniff! I've watched this film with various people. They all end up blubbering wrecks.

I also tear-up when Steve Martin invites John Candy over for thanksgiving in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. etc. etc.

Another vote for the acceptance letter scene in "Rudy".

Another scene in that move, when his teamates set their jerseys on Coach Devine's desk, saying, "This is for Rudy, coach."

Scene with the old, blind man in "Bride of Frankenstein"

At the end of "Home Alone" where the elderly neighbor man is reunited with his family.

Acceptance speech with Marc Singer playing John Cappelletti in "Something for Joey"

I know there's more....
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Old Yeller gets my vote. And Turner and Hootch. You can tell I like dogs.

But also any movie where someone good dies and leaves a loved one behind. Hate being manipulated by a movie like that. And that is why I stick to comedies!
