Me being the heartless ice queen that I am, in my long career of watching films, there have only been 4 that have made me cry.
1) Dumbo, quite recently, actually, but it is so sad, so don't laugh!
2) Mississippi Burning. when the KKK set fire to the black church.
3) Ladder 49. Heroes are not supposed to die!
4) Of course, Serenity. makes me cry like a baby every single time I watch it. Those who have seen it, i bet you can guess: if you can't

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, Reagan's presidential campaign manager & CIA Director (from first staff meeting in 1981)


Forrest Gump. "You died on a Saturday..." That whole scene where he's talking to Jenny at her gravesite. Gets me every single time.

Creator. When Virginia Madsen slips into a coma and the docs get the order to disconnect her from life support, while the man who loves her is just trying to convince them that she IS alive, she WILL wake up. It kills me.

Saving Private Ryan. The whole ending of the movie, where it segues to the present, and Ryan is visiting the graves of those who died to save him.

And Serenity, of course.

Bridges of Madison County.
When she's gripping the door handle, and he's in the truck in front just waiting...

Strictly Ballroom - tears of joy when he slides across the floor..

Watership Down, when Hazel dies...

King Kong, pretty much from the moment Kong tries to save her thinking Anne's being taken away against her will...

Serenity - as you would expect

Actually, I cry at most anything if I'm honest. Happy. Sad. Makes no difference.

I've only cried once in a movie. The Disney cartoon versionj of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. Fuck you, I was 10 at the time.

But for recent flicks, I am admitting as a heterosexual guy, that I got a bit choked up at the end of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN at the immortal last line, "Jack, I swear..." I dare you to watch that and not feel anything.

As for endings that make your spirit soar, two endings for two 98 movies are two of my favorite endings for movies. The one you would definitly know is the end of THE TRUMAN SHOW. It's such a perfect ending. Truman think's he's gonna sail off into the horizon, and then he bumps up against the wall of the studio. He knows that his entire life has been an illusion, but this clenches it for him. He finds a walk way and makes his way to the exit. But when he opens the door, Christof's voice rings out. He starts talking to Truman, and it's like watching Jesus talking to God. After Christof's speech, he says "Well say something, goddamn it. You're on television. You're live to the whole world!!!" Big dramatic pause, everyone on the entire planet is waiting. Truman turns around and simply says, "In case if I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening and good night." Laughs, says "Yeah.", takes a bow, turns around, and walks through the door into darkness. You see Sylvia running out the door to get him, and the entire planet cheering, and Christof's face slackening as he realizes his career is over. And after the transmission ends, the two security guards just go "What else is on?"

The other one is for the Canadian flick I've been raving about, LAST NIGHT. You see all the people throughout the movie as the world is enveloped in light, with Pete Seeger's "Guantanamara" playing over the soundtrack. And the last thing we see is Patrick and Sandra, who at this point are in a mutual Mexican standoff, disregard the guns and kiss each other as the screen goes to white.

I'm sorry for hijacking this thread slightly, but those are two endings that I absolutely love and get me really emotional.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
"There's only one "Return" ok, and it ain't "of the King", it's "of the Jedi."

"Maybe we should start calling your friend 'Padme' because he loves 'Mannequin Skywalker' so much, Right? (imitating robot) Danger...danger...my name is Anakin...my shitty acting is ruining saga."

Actually, they're too many to name. I'm not a sissy, and deal with real life with a healthy overdose of sarcasm, but when it comes to movies, I'm a sucker for sentimental scenes, well-done hero moments, true love, just very well done scenes or dialogues (tears of appreciation or something, I guess), beautiful shots of nature and the like, a beautiful woman, cute kittens, doesn't matter. If it's a GOOD movie (or has ONE really good aspect), chances are I get teary-eyed at least once.
Maybe that's my outlet for the RL teariness that I subconsciously suppress with sarcasm, I dunno.

To give you all something to tease me with later instead of boring you to death with self-reflection:
I cried like a hungry baby at the end of Titanic. Not because of Jack, but because of the fact that (apart from the actual sinking having taken place, which is quite tragic in itself) Rose had such a great and free and fullfilled life after everything that happened, and after her first great (and maybe only true) love died. So much strength and dignity and, heh, serenity. I'm actually getting teary-eyed right now, just thinking about it.
Back then in the theater(!), I was literally clinging to my then girlfriend and crying like the world had ended for about 5 full minutes (everyone else had already left when I finally put myself together), and I think she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But she said later that it was very cute.

I might add that sentimental men sometimes get rewarded with really good sex for showing their feelings.





...and I could still kill any of y'all with my pinky, so everything's shiny.

EDIT: I just cried watching Joss' Equality Now acceptance speech, btw.

Every Ed Wood movie, for obvious reasons...
Misery (Although the book is scarier)
Killer Klowns From Outer Space (possibly my favorite comedy)
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (The scene with Zack and Aerith, and Kadaj letting go...)
The Warriors, when Fox gets it
Back to the Future Part II, when George is 'dead'

Although, the winner has gotta be...

'The Green Mile' when Michael Duncan's watching the movie, and the ending.

Book got me tearful, but Wash...I dunno, it HAD been spoiled.

A lot of movies get to me but there are very few that choke me up nearly every time I see it. In no particular order:

-Beauty and the Beast when the Beast dies. Yes, it is a cartoon but it is still very touching to me.
-Saving Private Ryan at the end it just makes me so sad, I cannot watch it anymore.
-Sense and Sensibility when Elinor says to Marianne, "Edward will marry Lucy, and you and I will go home.". It just makes me so sad even though I know what is going to happen later.
-Forrest Gump when Forrest is talking to Jenny at her grave.

I did not cry during Serenity. My jaw dropped, but I guess I was too caught up in the action of the moment.

Serenity (every darn time). I start crying when Serenity crashes. Then I'm good until the funeral, then it's all downhill from there. By the time Mal gives his little monologue on Love at the end, I'm a sobbing mess. (And I'd have it no other way.)

Out of Africa - What a beautiful movie. The end is so terribly sad.

Armageddon - I know it has some cheezy moments, but when Grace has to say goodbye to her dad - I loose it. And the end makes me wail because it's so bittersweet.

Breakfast at Tiffany's - when Holly dumps Cat in the alley. (I'm the crazy cat lady).

Monster's Inc - At the very end when Sully opens up Boo's door and Boo says "Kitty". (Hey, I have a kid - I understand these emotions now!)

i DO aim to misbehave


"Step Mom" hits me pretty hard. A very close friend of mine had her third bought with cancer when her son was about the same age as the boy in that movie. She asked me to be his guardian then, because her family was in Beirut, and his father... well... Anyway, I start crying during the conversation between the Moms before the Christmas sequence and straight through to the end.

Somewhere in Time, when Jane Seymour returns to the scene and screams "RICHARD!"

Homeward Bound, when the pets get back to the house. The moment that golden retriever comes up over the hill. We watched that for the first time shortly after my sister's first golden retriever died.

I start getting panicky when Serenity starts her flat spin in the BDM, because I can just hear her saying, "This isn't right! I can't protect them like this!"

Watching her crash breaks my heart, but once she's down, I know I can close my eyes for a little while. The anticipation gets worse every time I'm at a screening.

Yet I don't cry. You'd think I would, but in the back of my mind, I know Joss Whedon's got a plan for all this. There is a reason for it and if I wait a little longer, I'll find out what it is.

Waited three years for the BDM. I can wait a bit more.

At the Minneapolis screening, I met a browncoat who cries every time because her fiance is a pilot, and is serving in Iraq. She says he's never allowed to say, "I'm a leaf on the wind..." That whole correlation made me cry.

Pride of the Yankees (when Lou Gehrig - Gary Cooper - says "Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.)
Romero (the end)
Life is Beautiful
And Serenity...interestingly not the first time I saw it (or the second)...but ever since I went and bought the BDS and then was so invested in all of the characters from watching the series a gazillion times that I get teary eyed a bunch of times every time I see it, and not just when Book and Wash die...like the scenes with River and Simon alone (on the ship and before River says "My turn!)...at the end with Mal and River...that "love speach.
And I know it's not officially a "movie" but the end of "The Message" always gets me too. Not just because it's great in its own right, but because it was the very last episode the BDHs filmed and they knew they were cancelled and saying goodbye to the series.

SUPERFLUOUS


On the top of my head there are two main films that bring a tear to my eye (in a mucho manly way of coarse).
The first has to be in 'The Lion King' when Simba finds out his father is dead. I would like to think its only because I was 10 at the time, but I had to watch it last week with my nephews and... I was pathetic.
The second movie is a little peculiar. It’s an old WW2 movie called 'The Longest Day' (D-Day).
Anyhow, there’s a scene with an old Frenchman whom is bitter about the Nazis whom patrol by his house the same time, every day (occupied France). But this one-day in particular, instead of the usual routine, the allies start bombing the crap out of the French sea-border. So meanwhile while his house is getting blown to pieces; the man is ecstatic, and in tears of joy (thanking god and somewhat). It’s a touching scene (you really have to be there).
Everyone's examples are really good one too (especially Serenity & Dumbo).

I ain’t cried in a while and most of the times I can remember were when I was a kid.

The Champ. Holy shit that's one sad movie.

Charlotte’s Web. Anyone who can sit though that and not shed a tear has ice water flowing through them.

Dumbo. The scene where his ma goes to grab for him.
(also I remember crying like a little bitch when i had nightmares over the 'pink elephant' scene.

Thats so sad. Everytime I hear or read "I am a leaf on the wind" especially in the film because I know what is coming, I just fill up, I can't help myself!

Where the Red Fern Grows made me cry when I was2 ( first movie I ever saw and yes my parents are sadists) I cried for days and built a grave for the puppies...
Milo and Otis because the cat and dog are lost and scared and cold and hungry.
At this point I have what my husband terms my " sad animal rule" If in the movie an animal is hurt, or treated badly, or emotionally hurt, I will not watch that movie. I have missed quite a few movies, but I know my limits and it'll upset me for days...same goes if it's a kid that's hurt.
Oddly, I am fine with extreme violence involving adults...just get upset when it's an animal or child

Of course the BDM made me cry. In the theater when Wash is killed you could hear a collective gasp and then a profound silence. Then the sound of quiet weeping.

I don't cry (I'm a rather extreme introvert), so I just want to cry. But I saw a few on the list that I agree with, such as Back to the Future Part II and Blade Runner. For me, there's:

1. Roman Holiday
2. Some eps of Futurama (I know it's a TV show, but it's great)
3. The Message from Firefly (I know, I know)
4. Edward Scissorhands
5. Bruce Almighty (I actually did cry for this one)
6. Big Fish (Again, actually cried, but still a great film)
7. Moulin Rogue (Fairly sad)

I can be a hopless romantic at times...

The ones that hit me the most is

1) Saving Private Ryan, in the beginning when Ryan is walking through the graveyard.

2) Forrest Gump when Forrest is talking to Jenny at her grave.

3) "The Message" on Firefly, that whole recording hits me every time, never fails. Also at the end of the show when Zoe and Mal are carrying the coffin outside Serenity, and when they put the camera on everyone individually. You just know that the show's over at that point. It was the final episode that never aired.

4) And of course Serenity, at the end at the memorial for Book, Wash and Mr. Universe. Does it to me everytime.

3. Romeo and Juliet- Baz Luhrmann version

If any of you can watch the scene where the Katie Nolan is giving birth with the aid of her daughter, Francis Nolan, in "A Tree Grows In Brooklin", without falling apart then you are cold.

I love crying at movies! The movies that get me usually involve kids...

1. Terms of Endearment (when Debra Winger says goodbye to her boys to the end)
2. Kramer v. Kramer (when Dustin Hoffman has to explain to his son why he's going to live with his mother)
3. Eight Below (my 5 yr. old daughter was sitting on my lap crying, what could I do?)
4. Steel Magnolias (when Sally Field falls apart at her daughter's funeral)
5. Shadowlands
6. Breakfast at Tiffanys (had seen it many times, but for some strange reason cried at the end when Audrey Hepburn is looking for that damn cat around the sixth time I saw it)
7. The Champ (the first movie I remember crying at)
8. Serenity (had a delayed reaction to that particular scene and cried during credits - still can't watch that particular scene without my hands to my face)

Well I haven't actually cried since Bambi when I was a little kid, but movies that have brought me to the verge of tears:

Serenity-figured I'd get this one out of the way

Armageddon-okay, I was young and it seemed touching

25th Hour-during Monty's dad's monologue

Band of Brothers-all the episodes are great, but the part in the documentary about serving in the company of heroes was tear-jerking

Blow-George's tape recording for his dad

Gattaca-just the end I guess

The Thin Red Line-the end again

That's all I can think of right now. Oh, I know Forrest Gump was already mentioned, but I find myself almost crying when Forrest asks if his son is smart, or like him...gets me every time.

Your mentioning of "Bambi" brought back memories.

It was the only film where I cried in a public place -- I was about 5 years old. And I didn't cry where one might think it would be normal to cry (when Bambi's mother was shot), but at the very end of the film. It was then, when I saw Bambi with his wife and family (but not his mother) that I realized the permanance of the loss, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Other than "Bambi", though, nothing bothered me as a child. I'd watch the most horrendous acts of violence, and not bat an eye. Even real-life attrocities like the holocaust didn't disturb me when I was younger, but now I can't watch any realistic war film without becoming disturbed. One would think that a child (or younger person) would be more easily disturbed, not an adult. With me, it's always been the opposite.

Anyhow, as an adult, the one film that gets me every time is "Ben Hur".

Like others here, "Pvt. Ryan" also hits a soft spot. I also can't help but be moved by "A Tale of Two Cities" (particularly the Ronald Coleman version). Some others that have touched me over the years include: "It's A Wonderful Life", "Decision Before Dawn", "Glory", "Little Boy Lost", "How Green Was My Valley", "Angels With Dirty Faces", "Tomorrow Is Forever", etc.

Virtually any realistic tragedy/war film disturbs me these days. (I can't explain it.)

Anyhow, those are just a few which come to mind. I'm sure I could think of many others, if I had a comprehensive list in front of me of everything I've ever watched.

EDIT: Oh yeah. Thanks, Traveler. How could I forget "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn"? Films like these are why I prefer ACTION and COMEDIES anymore. There's so much sadness and misery in reality, that I find it rather foolish to purposely pursue it in my "entertainment".

Greyfriars Bobby. End to end.

Hamish MacBeth. Wee Jock. Not a huge character, no cute tricks or pointing him up as heroic, clever or special. But when he dies...

The Railway Children (Got to be the Lionel Jeffries directed one.)

Goodbye Mr Chips. Any version.

The Iron Giant.

From the soundtrack of Amadeus, The Masonic Funeral Music. Sit in the dark and let it roll over you. When it dies away, you'll just sit there and silently mouth "Wow".

And while we're digressing, the Countess's and Susanna's duet* Tim Robbins plays over the prison PA in the Shawshank Redemption.

Dr Who."Everyone lives!"

Firefly. Burying Tracey.

Most movies with weddings do now that I'm married.

But specifically Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire when Cedric is dead telling Harry to take his body back and Harry is clinging to it crying. His anguish gets to me. I recently re-read the book and cried during that part in the book too.

One day.
One plan.
One army of Browncoats.

On June 23rd, we aim to misbehave.

Grave of the Firefies. Couldn't help it.

Everytime I've watched the Reflection disc of the Samurai X OVA series. Damn that Kenshin!

Also, I happened stumble upon the Christmas at Plumb Creek episode of Little House on the Prarie just before Christmas. Cried like a little bitch with a skinned knee.

Movies that make me sad... i sort of have bad memory so these are some I remember (no order):
1. A Bollywood show called Kal Ho Naa Ho (it takes 3 hours to get to the end, but it's so sad!)
2. Another Bollywood called Swades (it's also quite sad)
3. The Message from Firefly (the ending part was so sad!)
4. Out of Gas (Truly does make me teary and very anxious)
5. Serenity (A leaf on the wind part. makes me teary.)
6. Big Fish (I cried, though I like it.)
7. Moulin Rogue (Sad ending)
8. Sweet Home Alabama (no idea what part, but in the end I am teary.)
9. Dumbo (Very sad that mother rocking him part)
10. Recently "He Was Cool" a Korean Show (it's funny, I like it, and I cry...)
11. Even more recent, October Sky (watched it in school, and I almost cried, but at school i can stop myself from crying... so yeah)
12. In her shoes too (definitly... the poem that is read in it.)

I may seem super emotional and there is probably a lot more, but films and tv seem to be the only time I cry...

I don’t cry!

But if I did, and I’m not saying I do, then the end of Million Dollar Baby would to it; would do it in a hypothetical sense, that is, purely hypothetical damn you.

To be serious though, I really don’t, but have on occasion gotten misty-eyed (hypothetically that is.)

The thing with Million Dollar Baby is that I couldn’t figure out if the ending was sad or happy. That movie just screwed with your brain.

the last fifteen minutes of armageddon - i got a soft spot for ol' brucie
big fish - the moment when ewan macgregor steps through the washing line...
angels in america - just a beautiful ending, when justin(?) chooses to bear living with AIDS rather than join the angels
the green mile - john coffee.
gladiator - the emperor's sister leaning over the dying maximus and whispering "go to them". every time.
the godfather: part III - though for very different reasons than the above. blame sofia coppola's acting.

GRAYFURY


Mostly any movie where something bad happens to animals... Hidalgo, Turner & Hooch, Naausica of the valley of the wind. For being a 6'3" 200 lb guy... I'm such a little bitch.

There was an episode of "caught on tape" where some crack head with a shot gun was holding a woman hostage. The police used a trained German Shepard to try to subdue him. She was shot and they show her limping back to her trainer. He hugs her and we find out later that she died... they gave that beautiful dog a police officers funneral, the 21 gun salute, the flag drapped coffin and the full persession... I'm getting misty remembering it.

WINDSTRUCK


I cry happy tears in movies. Not much crying on sad scenes except when the soundtrack really gets to me.

In random order:
1. My Sassy Girl (Wonderful Korean Movie) - I was clapping, crying and laughing at the same time while watching this movie. I hope hollywood doesn't corrupt this one with their version.
2. Windstruck (Another really cool Korean movie)
3. Forrest Gump
4. Mr Holland's Opus
