Shit gets dusty.
Was discussing this with a good friend. My votes:
-The intro to UP. Fuck that tore me apart
-Red dress girl in Schindler's List
-The ending of What Dreams May Come
Shit gets dusty.
I have never seen UP so I am not sure I get it... do you mean a scene that makes the audience realize something very sad happened by showing the consequences of it rather than the act itself?
He's making some sort of reference to something getting into his eye and that's why he's crying not because of the film.
Thread titling needs some work.
@Alex:LOL thought the same thing.then i realized it's about those crying your eyes out scenes
so let me see (this is going to be scenes that "moved me" except for the the 1st)
The Land Before Time ->the only movie that made me cry (i was 7 or 8),when Littlefoot's parents die.
UP! -> the intro.i know Disney sometimes likes to tear our heart apart but never thought would be so soon.
Crash -> when we thought that little girl was shot.
The Constant Gardener -> the ending,when that guy was reading the letter at the end

A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
nm, thought it was an acronym.
When that bitch choked the pimpest hutt in the outer rim.
Anecdote related to the bummer ass beginning of UP: Had an ex over once with her daughter(10ish) and a friend and put the movie on since they hadn't seen it. 5 minutes in or so when the sad shit is hitting hard the kid starts yelling at me and hitting me in the arm. "WHY WOULD YOU SHOW US THIS!?"
When it was in theaters I took my niece to see it, she held up OK but there were kids in that theater bawling their fucking eyes out.
+1 for what dreams may come. Not even the manliest man can resist giving up a few tears to that movie.
I remember crying like a little bitch at The Heavenly Kid when I was like 10. I barely even remember the movie now but it was at the end. Based on the plot on wiki it would either be Bobby saying goodbye and accepting his fate of going to hell, or him actually getting in to heaven.
When Old Dan and Little Ann die in Where the Red Fern Grows.
It's like someone intentionally designed a movie to fuck with people
Rudy where the team lay their jerseys down in front of the new coach requesting Rudy gets to dress for the final game.
When I was 12 I balled my eyes out when they shot Old Yeller .
Fuck you rabies....fuck you.
Brian's Song the original with Billy Dee Williams and James Caan.
Growing up a Bear's fan that movie had bawling like a girl 1st time I saw it.
Pretty much the entire second half of Hachiko.
Fuckin dogs, man...
50/50 got to me pretty bad, especially the scene in the jeep. While I never shed a tear during "The Road", that's probably the most downright depressing movie I've ever seen. Watching that fucking movie takes something out of you.
Reading the book of The Road, when the father has his last talk with the son, that got to me. The only book that ever really has like that.
When I saw Les Miserables years ago and old girl comes back to take Valjean to heaven. Shit was powerful, bros.
when i saw angelina jolies tits in hackers, i wept like jesus had come back. her ass in tomb raiders didn't have the same impact though, thats when I knew i had grown up
I had a hard time keeping it together for most of I Am Sam
Wash in Serenity.
I have a few very odd movies.
Only movie I cried a bit during it as a kid was Ernest Scared Stupid when Rimshot his dog is turned to wood and he has him on his dashboard trying to drive back and save him and he is balling his eyes out. I misted up quite a bit.
More recently the following movies have made me tear up a bit and all for odd reasons.
Spider-Man 2 when Spidey loses his mask on the Subway and he is just beat down and the people hand him his mask back. It got to me.
Which brings me to Batman: The Dark Knight at the end when he is taking the brunt of the peoples rage and running because he can take it.
Lastly was Battle: Los Angeles, this one has a bit of story to it. The main character was a Marine at Camp Pendleton and a SSgt and was getting out of the Marines. At the same time I was a Marine at Camp Pendleton and a SSgt and was getting out of the Marines. He goes through all that hell and puts in everything he has and then at the end he tells the officer that he already had breakfast as he's loading up to go back out again and all his Marines follow suit. Man oh man, I had to hide in the theater and make sure everyone else was gone before I left with my sunglasses on. The motorcycle was in the shop so the wife picked me up at the theater and was shocked to see actual tear tracks down my cheeks.
I haven't cried at any other occasion other than the death of my daughter (very little there just was too much shock) and the death of my dad a year ago and that was for a few days.
Like I said, some odd things to cry during.
oderint dum metuant
I am an easy target and cry at movies too often to make a list (though I should try and be scientific about it, because some things make me all teary eyed when barely intended to be sad and some obvious tear-pulling moments have little to no effect... meh). I'll list the latest time I got really gripped almost instantly and turned into a fountain: I was at a film festival where one of the screen was devoted every day from early morning to late in the night to Mark Cousins' 15 hours long documentary on film history called The Story of Film: An Odyssey. I had a gap between two movies so I hopped in at about the start of Episode 10 (1969-1979: Radical Directors in the 70s - Make State of the Nation Movies). Basically the guy reads his book over clips from different movies and he showed clips from a 1971 japanese documentary titled 'Minamata: The Victims and Their World'. No more explanation needed, the clip from Cousins' documentary is on youTube (and I cried again):
We Were Soldiers Once, dudes leaving their families in the early morning for formation to deploy, and the whole "Sgt MacKenzie " song scene.
Gods and Generals, scene at Fredericksburg with the Irish killing the Irish.
Ken Burn's Civil War, Sullivan Ballou's letter.
Laugh at me all you want, but the only time I ever cried in a theatre was when Spock died in Wrath of Khan. I think my old man cried like a bitch when no one was looking during that, too. That whole drawn out scene in the engineering was a gut wrencher for any die hard star trek fan. Big Fish did it to me later in life.
668 The Neighbor of the Beast.

It was a long ass time ago, but I remember feeling kind of weepy in Stir of Echoes when the two dudes assault the Samantha.
cinderella man (out of joy) when he won against all odds (after buildup).
somewhere in pianist when german officer tells MC to remember him or something. The whole movie was raw.
Grave of the Fireflies. More than one part.
Speaking of, Marley and Me got me. Despite fully knowing what was coming, and every person on earth having already said how it hit them.
Jew dude in Saving Private Ryan hit me with basically every emotion in the book. Don't think I've ever felt someone's death like it was happening to me like that knife going in to him so slow as he pled for his life. Not a real tearjerker moment, but legit bummed me the fuck out.
Can't think of any movies, but watching old episodes of Nypd Blue makes me misty for some reason. Scenes with Andy being tolerant and bonding with the gay dude, considering his past actions, and reconnecting with the "ghost" of Bobby. Shit got real :S
Starship Troopers. poor Michael Ironside

This fucked me up pretty bad. For like, years.
Bawing, mayby not, but I thought The Fountain was rather powerful. Spirituality is overrated in my book, but the movies' portrayal of love and existentialism is thought provoking as it is emotional and intelligent. Lovely Bones is also worth mentioning. Rachel Weisz is always a treat imho
Clannad Afterstory will make anyone weep an ocean of tears.
I'm a complete sap for patriotic stuff. I'll mist up at the national anthem at sporting events (unless Roseanne Barr is singing it).
So, of course, in ID4 when the President is giving his speech about this being our independence day, I of course have to rapidly blink. I can handle normally sad stuff, but put a patriotic spin on it and I'm a little bitch.
Welled up watching Gattaca when the brothers raced each other in the water as adults. And Ethan Hawke gives his spiel about how he can only beat his brother if he gives up hope of ever turning back.
ahhh here we go.
Right in the feels.
I am a pussy....but...
the end of Gladiator...fuck you, you cant die yet...don't go in the damn door...kill that fool...okay...you can die now...go to your wife and child...oh fuck...QQ
the end of The Notebook...oh fucking a
the end of Windaria (anime) it just depresses the shit out of you and your like "WHY AM I CRYING?! AND SAD AS SHIT"
This scene hit me in the feels when I saw it for the first time. Granted, from the video I can't really remember why. Something about Harry in order to cast the spell has to remember the happiest moment with his father, but the memory is completely fabricated.
STOP EMBEDDING YOU FAGGOTS IT'S DUSTY IN MY COMPUTER ROOM
Cast Away. When he loses Wilson.
The end of Glory gets me every time.

Ending of The Gladiator
American Psycho, business card scene
Watership Down. The whole movie.
I've only cried(Or even teared up) in like 3 different movies. Oddly enough, Will smith is in two of them... Shit is sad yo
The Subway scene in Pursuit of Happyness, in context, is such a sad fucking scene. I can't help it everytime I see it.
and the scene when he has to kill his dog in I am Legend. That shit just gets to me.
and the last one is from the new Gyllenhal movie, End of Watch. The Funeral for his partner is pretty sad. Amazing Grace on bagpipes is like onions or something.
Detheb - XtitanX
15 no's and one yes makes it legal
The moment in Eight Below when he finally gets back to the Antarctic, only to find the lead dog still on the leash buried in the snow.
I'm shocked no one has mentioned Fry's dog in Futurama. I sure as hell am not putting the youtube clip in here.
Last ep of Gundam Seed, MANY SADS. And the ending of Saikano, like, holy fucking shit sads.
Lots of teary-eyed scenes in ef - a tale of memories and ef - a tale of melodies too, though more happy side for tears in memories.
Lots of FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC GOOD FEELS in Fairy Tail.
There's a few good tears in Steins;Gate.
Angelic Layer - one of the last couple episodes where Misaki finally sits down with her mom, tears flow like a fucking faucet.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Kamina, self explanatory
The end of Toy Story 3 gets me almost everytime. Agree about a lot of the scenes you guys are mentioning.
Shawshank when he finally escapes out of the drainage pipe and then when he meets Red on the beach.
"In the year of our Lord, 1314, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom."
People have already mentioned What Dreams may come.
I could cry at at least 5 points during that movie.
Rudy when he sacks the QB on the last play. The reactions from his family and Jon Favreau get me every time.
Pursuit of Happyness. The scene in the subway doesnt get me, but when he gets the job I lose my shit.
Will Smith has a way with these scenes. Fucking dog in I am Legend.
But his best scene ever?
When his Dad ditches him in Fresh Prince - and then he loses his shit talking to Uncle Phil. Tear Jerker.
Also in the final episode when him and Uncle Phil are talking about how he lied about having a place to live and a job because he didnt want to disappoint him. And Uncle Phil tells him "You are my son". Bam. Tears.
When Goose dies in Top Gun.
The Tachikoma's sacrificing themselves at the end of SAC:2nd Gig.
Good one with Angelic Layer.
LeLouch's death in Codge Geass.
Clannad. The whole fucking thing. In fact, this just made me depressed.
End of Chrno Crusade.
Ok and an odd one. Angel Beats. I never thought this series would turn out so good. I thought it was another typical action/comedy, but my god that last scene when they are saying goodbye to each other and hoping to find each other in the living world...the last part with Yuri, Otonashi, and Kanade I was truly shook up. It touched on every sad emotion possible.
And of course live action mother fucking Braveheart. The torture scene is drawn out so you can sorta keep your shit together right? You have 5 minutes to gather yourself cause you know what's coming. Then he drops the cloth...fade in the hilltop and you hear Robert the Bruce give his short speech. BAM fucking Niagra Falls.
The end of October Sky.
The end of Saving Private Ryan, seeing a grown man cry and realizing it's Ryan in the graveyard.
Fucking Scrubs, no matter how times I watch those 2 episodes I choke up
The Frys dog and Philip J Fry episodes also make me cry like a bitch.
Sentimental war movies tend to get me.
And fuck if the final episode of Lost didn't get me. It was when the dog laid down next to Jack. Jesus Christ that was cheap -- but it worked.
I'll save some of you guys some effort. Lost was terrible. Only season 1 happened.
A League of their own is one of my favorite movies from childhood. It doesnt get me anymore, but when I was young I a bit misty when the guy shows up and tells that lady her husband died.
"What Dreams May Come", my wife and I's first date movie. Can't go wrong with Robin Williams right? Other than that, movies pets die in. Hate seeing animals suffer/die.
Road to Perdition. When Tom Hanks has to kill his friend/boss. When Tom gets it. When the kid shows up at the farm. Great film
ET was one of the first movies I saw in the theater. I was 5. I bawled all the way through the parking lot.
It's risky, but I'll admit to one more that hasn't been mentioned: The Last Samurai. When they finally succumb to the gatling guns at the end. Blah blah Tom Cruise sucks, whatever. I mostly agree. But that was a good role, and those samurai were some disciplined, honorable sons of bitches.
I do agree that Katsumoto's seppuku was presented beautifully, both with his dying comment about the flowers, and with the Imperial soldiers bowing to him.
When Rue dies in Hunger Games there is a 3 minute stretch where I get torn between crying and being annoyed at how stupid it is for her to gather flowers for her funeral.
Hotel Rwanda made me cry a couple times.
On the What Dreams May Come tip
Sorry, Babe. There's some things I have to say and I only have a few moments left. I'm sorry for all the things I'll never give you. I'll never buy you another meatball sub with extra sauce. That's a big one. I'll never make you smile. I just wanted us to grow old together. Just two old farts laughing at each other as our bodies fell apart, together at the end...at that lake in your painting. It was our Heaven, see? There's lots of things to miss. Books...naps...kisses...and...fights! (laughs) God, we had some great ones. (whispers) Thank you for those. Thank you for every kindness. Thank you for our children. And for the first time I saw them. Thank you for being someone I was always proud to be with. For your guts...for your sweetness...for how you always looked--for how I always wanted to touch you. You were my life. I apologize for every time I failed you.
Especially this one.
