    There's a moment in The Awakening where the mother of Robert De Niro's character sees her son for the first time since he came out of his 'coma'. It could have been really cheesey, but I thought it was handled perfectly. I saw it at the pictures, and I actually shed a few tears. :eek: Which was EXTRA embarrassing as I was on a first date! :bang:

    The Crow - Everything about that movie, especially when Eric (Brandon Lee) comes back home and has all the memories of his life. Easily the most under-rated movie of all time.

    Braveheart - The part where the little girl gives a young William the flower at the end of the father/brother funeral. Get's me every time.

    Man On Fire - The relationship that Denzel develops with Dakota, and how it all plays out, and when she is running back to him at the end.

    Pursuit of Happyness - If the scene at the end where Will Smith has tears in his eyes does not move you... man!

    Man On Fire

    Though Man on Fire is a bit too much of an action movie. The ending was really moving. I am a bit too violent to watch sad martial arts movies. :D I really prefer :woo:

    Nuf said.

    Roual Eternally curious...

    Transformers the Movie, when Optimus Prime dies :cry:

    Wrong thread for this, but books tend to get me more emotional than films, but then I do read more than I watch :rolleyes:

    During my first year at uni I lived in a hall of residence and one day there was a large group of us in the TV room watching 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air', it was the episode where Will's absent father came back into his life and of course Will is all excited and they're planning a trip together.

    Uncle Phil tries to warn Will that his father is a no good good for nothing but Will's all 'You're not my real father, forget you...' or something.

    Anyway, Will's all set for the trip but his father had bailed on him. Of course Will tries to act all cool with it, he is the Fresh Prince afterall, then he goes into a rhetoric on how he's going to be a better father than his father will ever be.

    This leads to a breakdown and the line 'Why doesn't he want me..?'

    Get's me every single time... :cry:

    Usually when comedy programmes try to have a 'Serious and Moving Moment', it makes you want to barf, but that one was really well done, and was genuinely moving.

    PS: are we allowed to include p0rn films in this thread? Some of them are very moving.

    Off the top of my head....
    'Spirited Away' (just for being utterly lovely)
    'Pan's Labyrinth'
    The last episode of 'Blackadder Goes Forth', when they go over the top. I've seen that soooo often and I cry every single time! :eek:

    Oooh yeah I forgot to say that in that room full of lads half of them huge big t3h d34dly rugby players, every single person was silent by the end of that episode.

    I don't see why not, it does say what movie moves you. Though I'm sure it's emotion movement rather than moving for tissue... :eek:

    Dancer in the dark is the most tragic film i have ever seen (and i've seen alot of 'em)

    I swear i have never cried so much at something that wasnt real.

    tom pain I want Chewbacc for good

    Same here. Nothing wrong with showing some emotion.

    My favorite movie is "Love Actually."

    I'm just sorry it has all those... adult oriented scenes so it can't be shown on TV every year at Christmas time. It would be the new "Miracle of 42nd Street." An edited version would work, just not quite as well.

    Movies with ulterior motives or seeing people succeed against all odds are definitely ones that hit me the most.
