    OK, c'mon admit it, I don't care how tough you are, we've all shed a tear or two during a good weepie.

    ***POSS SPOILER ALERT ***

    For me....Field of Dreams, the final scene where Kevin Costner meets his dad. Get's to me everytime I watch it.

    Also Ghost (similar scene) when Demi Moore sees Patrick Swayzee at the end.

    Surely i'm not the only 'big softie' on this forum?

    ET leaves me blubbing like a girl - more than once.
    And it takes a lot of effort to control myself for the final scene of It's a Wonderful Life.

    I must admit I shed a tear (well almost!!;) ) watching A Knights Tale when Ulrich meets up with his Dad.

    Got a "Are you crying??"

    "Nah! not me, got something in my eye!!;) :rolleyes:

    HI All,

    For me, these 2 caused me to cry volumes:

    An American Tail (When Fievel is swept away from his parents!)

    Third Watch: Season 1 "Demolition Derby" (THe best and most heart-wrenching piece of TV I've ever seen... period! Superbly dramatic, and totally designed to make you shed loads of tears!)

    Oh, Ian J - the film you were talking about was called "The Bear"! It was a French film, dubbed into English, if memory serves, from around 1987.

    Pooch

    The Ryan White story ( true story), young kid who contracted aids through a blood transfusion i think, very very sad, cried buckets...

    It was only a few days after watching it that he died.........this started me of again....Elton John was also a good friend to him.

    True stories seem to get me more.......

    For me the final bit in Gladiator when he is carried out of the collussiam(spelt wrong I know) it's so unfair that he was stabbed before the fight but I guess he realised everything he wanted.

    What I have noticed is that since I have had children who are now 12 +13 I am much more emotional about things or maybe because I am 40 soon I am going through a mid life crisis - in fact I am crying now and I'm at work :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Has to be The Green Mile for me as well.

    ET still brings a lump to my throat, emotional scars left over from a kid when I watched it in the cinema and started balling

    Not a film, but Buffy/Angel:
    1) When she kills Angel (who has just had his soul returned) to stop the world being destroyed.
    2) When Angel becomes mortal to be with Buffy, but then has to turn time back so that he can continue fighting the good figth.
    3) From the current series of Buffy on Sky the episode after Once More with Feeling . Don't want to say too much and spoil it for those that haven't seen it yet.

    Moulin Rouge - you know the ending from the start, but I still almost had tears in my eyes at the end.

    Starting to well up again,
    Liam

    The end of Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan....just cannot handle Spock's death and Kirk's eulogy......and I'm not even much of a Trekkie....honestly.

    Or Schindler's List....nearly the whole bloody thing.

    It’s A Wonderful Life gets me every time by the end.
    Sometime serious stories that involve animals proving the are humane than humans.

    Gotta go with Ian and The Green Mile. The whole cast played that one superb, especially Michael Clark Duncan. Armegeddon always gets to me, its the combination of Brucie and the soundtrack. Braveheart is a real test at it has a few moments, but playing the end sequence at reference levels with Mel screaming 'freedom' is just so overwhelming. Thats another one that uses the music extremely well. Oh and lastly, the CGI effects of the plane crash, at the end of Air Force One!

    The killing fields, the end scene when the two friends meet up and imagine is playing in the background, heart breaking stuff. The Mission. The scene where they are cut down while they are carrying the cross, and unarmed

    Only tears of joy for 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'It's a Wonderful Life' which I have to watch every Xmas morning before opening presents.

    Plus any adaptation of 'A Christmas carol', even Bill Murray's 'Scrooged'.

    Plus 'ET' and 'Shcindler's List'. Also 'Watership Down' as a kid.

    I'm pathetic.

    Hey, I'm male. I have urges.

    Even started to watch Fast & Furious before friends decided to go home. Probably a wise move. It was brain-dead, but in a quite watchable way. Hey, Ian - do you race your souped up car like they do in F&F? I now have this mental image of you as Vin Diesel - all muscles and no hair.

    Cheers,
    Liam

    The final scene in The Shawshank Redemption when Red and Andy again meet on the beach.
    You just see Red walking up and smiling, you dont need any dialogue, and I always need the tissue.

    At the end of The Green Mile when Tom Hanks character realises that if the mouse has lived for so long, how many more years will have left watching his friends die.

    And Gladiator with Russell Crowe at the end when you know, its the music that sets me off.

    Has to be Schindler's List. One of the most thought provoking, moving films of all time I think. Will never forget going to the packed opening night at the local UCI. The whole film was dotted with sighs and tears from around the theatre and when the end credits rolled nobody left their seats, they just sat there in total silence. Haven’t seen that sort of reaction to a film since.

    Cheers

    Dave
