Thats a really cool question. I'm sorry I've not got round to answering sooner but I've not been in this thread in a long time. But nope I haven't actually seen it yet. I just couldn't motivate myself to watch it. I have to be in the mood for watching a film. Thankyou for asking though  smile

"Life is Beautiful" always makes me weepy and sad, and happy at the same time! Damn you, Roberto Benigni! You and your silly chair-walking antics!

Also, the train bit in "Spirited Away." That last scene, where it's close up on Chihiro's face looking ahead... so sad...

*jumps in wayback machine* Also the first time I saw "Transformers: The Movie" when I was a kid, I bawled when Optimus Prime died.   cry I was depressed for days.

EDIT: Also! The Iron Giant, when he tells Hogarth that he must go, and Hogarth must stay.

LOTR: Fellowship, not when Gandalf dies but right after, when everyone is outside on the rocks and crying. Boromir calls for Frodo and he turns... one single tear rolls down his cheeck. Beautiful.

This is kinda cheesy (and not a movie per se), but in the videogame "Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask," there's this part where a little girl's father is slowly losing his mind and turning into a mummy... when she tells about it, and later, when you reunite them, it's very touching and sad.

->Toy Story 2, during the "when she loved me" song.

-> The Green Mile and Dead Man Walking ('cause I'm easily manipulated by death row stories, apparently).

-> The end of Jurassic Bark

-> Lilo & Stitch

-> Haven't seen ET in five years, but I almost teared up last time I saw it (which could have been embarrising, as I was in the middle of a grade 11 english class).

Wow, I'm more of a sentimental twit then I thought.

Out of Futurama eps, Leela's Homeworld, Luck Of The Fryrish, Time Keeps On Slippn', but I've never actually saw Jurassic Bark.

It's dumb, but when I was little I cried when Mufasa died in Lion King.  And the movie A Walk To Remember made me cry.  I'm a sensitive person.  Also, at the end of the book Holes I didn't cry but it was a, umm, emotional ending.

The first time I saw ET, I weeped when when he was ill and dying on the ditch.

I also got teary-eyed in Beauty & The Beast when it came out, right before the Beast turned human.

I think that Spielbergs AI:Artificail Intelligence, and ET make me cry the most. Honestly i just can't watch them without welling up inside and blubbing like a girl. Both films are high in my all time favorites list, they really are totally brilliant.

The first time I saw Titanic in the cinema I found it very moving, I cried throughout most of the finale. I think it's the music that does it (possibly the only example of Cilien Dion being appropriate!)

I got watery eyed in the Lord of the Rings, both when Gandalf "dies" (it's the look on Frodo's face) and Boromirs death scene (what a brilliant performence from Sean Bean!).

The ending of the Shawshank Redemption is very moving but in a happy way, but it still kinda makes me cry.

When I saw the Lion King as a child in the cinema me and my little sister both cried when Mufassa is killed. Oh and of course Bambi had a similar effect "mother?"

For some reason I often get watery eyes watching Star Wars, but in a happy way, i think it's the sheer exhilaration and John Williams brilliant music.

The only time I cried watching Futurama was the ending scene in Jurassic Bark, it is truely amazing that an animated sitcom can have this effect on people, Futurama has raised the bar.

I know that this post makes me sound like a wimp, but i'm not, I just really love movies. Infact I pity people who can't get involved enough I a movie to cry when apropriate.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention the scene that somebody else already mentioned from Toy Story 2.

I went to see that movie opening night with my best friend, because we're both all about the giant robots. By the end, we couldn't even look at each other. "Are you crying?" "*snif* No. Are you?" "snif* No..." To this day, the end of that movie makes me tear up.

(Edited to add that "The Sting" got me pretty choked up too.)

I'm not a wuss either, I just get sensitive

I also hate it when I was watching "Leela's Homeworld" with my dad and sis and I was the only one with that face you get when you're close to crying.  They didn't at all.  It annoys me!  And I've never seen JB, but it sounds sad. 

I'm sorta ashamed to say I never saw ET.  I was never interested in it really.

I'm surprised some people didn't include Jurassic Bark in their list of tear-inducing Futurama episodes. I didn't cry, but it was definitely the most emotional cartoon I've ever watched. I guess I'm a bit of a sucker for that animal stuff  smile

You mean like this? Sorry I hadn't noticed it before.
Oh i'd also like to add another movie to my list, it used to make me cry as a kid, and it's still realy upsetting.
You know the scene in Who Frammed Roger Rabbit when Christopher Lloyd's character Judge Doom is demonstrating the way to kill a toon using that green dip stuff. He picks up this really small, cute little shoe with a pair of eyes and slowly lowers it into the dip as it burns to death. It sounds lame but just watch the scene, it's realy depressing!
Oh yeah and the scene in Saving Private Ryan were a German Soldier slowly sticks a knife in the chest of an American Soldier, I forget the actors name, he also played Chandlers crazy roommate in an episode of Friends. I challenge anyone to watch that scene and not be truely shocked, or atleast scwurm in thier seat.

My Dog Skip was a terrible, manipulative tearjerker, and I hate myself for crying at the end. I am the biggest dog-lover, but after sobbing my eyes out over the Moose(dog from Frasier who played the old Skip)'s death, I felt strangely cheated. I normally wouldn't have cried if anything else had died b/c of the film's utter sappiness.
"Jurassic Bark" worked me over the same way, but after it was over I didn't feel so manipulated b/c it was so....very....sad....  cry
.....anyway, I hate those kinds of tearjerkers that don't carry any meaning below them...the truly sad ones are the ones you can think about days after or see again and still choke up. Not many movies are strong enough in that way.

Huh.

I bawled at the end of "The Sting."  Not sure if it was really that powerful or I just needed some cathartic emotional release, but it got me.

I would always have a good cry at the end of "Edward Scissorhands" when the Danny Elfman score swells, and snow is flying out the castle window onto the town below, as Edward carves beautiful ice sculptures of Wynonna Ryder from so many years ago. That is, until recently, when I watched the movie on DVD.  The picture was so clear and detailed that it became obvious that the "ice sculptures" were just hollow plastic casts.  Just killed the emotion for me.

My old man always cries when he watches "October Sky." I guess it reminds him of himself as a young man.

Why does The Sting make evryone cry?  I mean, it was emotional, but it didn't make me cry.  And I didn't ever see Jurassic Bark, I don't remember why, so I can't say it made me sad.  But I'm also a big dog, actually animal, lover, so I wouldn't be surprised if it did.

A Walk To Remember is like the only movie to make me close to crying.  I really don't cry much in the movies.

Of course how could I forget about Edward Scissorhands! That Danny Elfman music is incredible.

I got my Season 3 set yesterday and watched 'Luck of the Fryrish' for the first time in ages. The first time I saw it I didn't think much to it, but this time I couldn't stop myself crying a little at the ending. It's the only thing I've ever cried at (TV/movie). The only things that I came close to crying at was Babylon 5, both when Kosh died and in the final episode where Babylon 5 is shut down.

I can't think of a movie that's made me cry though. Only stuff that scared me as a kid (particularly Watership Down)

There are too many TV shows and movies to name that i've cried at. But the movie I cried at the most was A Walk to Remember and My Dog Skip. Even though i read the book A Walk to Remember first and knew what was going to happen, i still was sobbing. I can't even watch My Dog Skip. WAY TOO sad!

For a TV show the most i cried at was the Season 5 Finale of Buffy.

Also for Futurama episodes, i wasn't sobbing but i did get very teary-eyed during the Luck of the Fryish and Jurassic Bark.

Yay!  Someone besides me who got teary eyed from A Walk To Remember! 

Leela's Homeworld din't really make me cry, but my face looked like Fry's before the song in that ep.

Movies I cried at that I can remember:
Edward Scissorhands
Titanic
Pay it Forward
AI
Ghost
I'm sure there's more, but I can't remember.

Episodes of Futurama:
A Flight to Remember (Well, I'd been going through a stage where everything made me cry, plus I was a teenage girl, what could you expect?)
A Bicyclops Built for Two (the very, very, very end)
Parasites Lost (esp. the end)
Luck of the Fryrish (Probably just at the end)
Time Keeps On Slippin' (Again the end)
Leela's Homeworld (Esp. the end)
Love and Rocket (Once again the end)
Now, I still have yet to see Jurassic Bark and The Sting, because I didn't even know they were on at the time  frown, but once I realized I missed Futurama, I went online and did everything short of seeing the eps... And each time, when I read the sad stuff that happens I just burst into tears.

Episodes of Buffy/Angel I cried at:
Becoming Part 2
Wild at Heart
Hero
Parting Gifts
Family
The Body
The Gift
Bargaining Part 2
Once More, With Feeling (though I may have been too excited to cry)
Seeing Red
Grave
Selfless
Chosen
There may be more, but... Yeah, I'm a sucker for dying/leaving characters.

Also, Final Fantasy 7 made me cry.
That's all I can think of.

I cried at Encino Man, but that's because I had taken the straw from my drink and was slowly but surely working it into the flesh of my thigh to distract me from the pain the movie was causing.
