What was so good about Episode 1?
I mean, I did not like matrix reloaded at all but I can understand why some people did.

But episode 1 made me feel like Lucas was laughing at me.

Usually I don't cry during movies but thier was one which I don't remember the name of, but it was basically a biography, and a scene at the end where the man dies in a hospital bed, he looked exactly like my grandfather didi when he died.  that made me cry.

I've cried at a couple of movies, though they were both animated.  The Iron Giant, when the Giant leaves (I... Superman) always makes me break out the hanky.  The other one is a Japanese anime movie called Grave of the Fireflies.  I mean, I'd had spoilers to this movie, but I still cried at the end of it anyway.  Really sad.

I can't understand why so many people don't like The Phantom Menace. I remember going to see it for the first time in the cinema with my family and friends and I left spellbound. We all enjoyed it alot. Then I remember being completly confused when I started hearing so much negative feedback, did they see the same film as me!?
Just because lots of people found Jar Jar anoying, they write off the whole film! For the record i've never had a problem with Jar Jar, I know it's become this kind of cult fanboy tradition to diss Jar Jar, but i'm not going to say I hate him just for the hell of it because I don't!
When the film came out on DVD (several years after the 1999 theatrical release) people started to look at the film in a fresh frame of mind, away from the hype. Episode 1 is rated as a 4 star film by most books and magazines, and appears on many top sci-fi film polls. Empire magazine, the worlds most respected film magazine rates The Phantom Menace as a 4 star film and I totally agree. It's not perfect, the middle section drags slightly (although it's vital to the plot) and not all the characters are given much chance to say or do interesting things (Ewan McGregor spends most of the time looking over Liam Nessons shoulder). But the podrace, and lightsaber battle are some of the greatest moments in the entire Star Wars saga. I love the scene in Watto's junk shop when Anakin first meets Padme.
"Are you an angel?" he asks. It's such an inocent thing to say. But it's also undermined by that feeling of inevitabiltity and tradgedy. By meeting each other, both characters have started on the path that will ultimatly lead to their doom, and the rise of the Empire. I think the people who didn't like the film were just mad that they were no longer 12 years old, and it's no longer 1977. Can you honestly say that if the Phantom Menace had come out first instead of Star Wars: A New Hope that you would have the same negative opinion. If so. then I think you're lying. In 20 years time when the people who were 12 in 1999 look book on the film it will be viewed as a classic, and in the same league as the original trilogy. I've seen it many times and I'll probably see it many more times. It's exciting, fun, inventive, and contains some of the best music and visual effect ever!

Ignore the sad, and obsessive complaints from a small group of hardcore geeks, and make your own mind up about the film!

"Edward Scissorhands", "Vanila Sky", I think part of "Platoon" (I had a fever so It may not have been valid),"Blade Runner" Directors cut, The John Lithgow Cable version of "Don Quixote", "Laputa: Castle in the Sky", and parts of HBO's "From the Earth to the Moon" but that was just from sheer awe.
There's others but I can't think of them now.

Yeah, I also cried in Return of the King, but not only at the end, also with Theoden's last words and when Arwen has a vision of Aragorn playing with their future son with that beautiful music on the background.

I used to get teary when the mother died in The Land Before Time as well. And whn Atreju's horse sank into that swamp in the Neverending Story (but that was long ago)
An recent news, I was broke into tears during Alyssa's monologue outisde the ockey arena in Chasing Amy. And also, I was very deeply touched by the whole Eowyn story in ROTK. I felt so bad for her. Especially since we see it coming, and she thinks there's something there. And of course the ending...

Yes! Pip's song. That did it for me as well (just forgot to post it above for some freakish reason. And the bridge: The entire place is called Khazad Dm. Moria is the Elvish word for it, meaning "Dark Chasm". Khazad Dm is Dwarven for "Great dwarf house/mansion" or something like that. So the bridge is the main bridge of the "mine".

Oh, I totally forgot Moulin Rouge! I noticed that it was on TV last night. I'm not much for those types of movies, but that movie kicks Titanic's ass any day for being the greatest love movie of all time (Or at least in the top three). I can distinctly remember my eyes getting all watery at the end of that movie when I first saw it. It still gets me at the end.

I agree with Slurm Guy, Moulin Rouge! was excellent, I still won't put it as the greatest love movie of all time, but definitely better than Titanic.

Also, I surprisingly didn't cried whit Pippin's song. Other parts I cried: when Frodo tells Sam that he doesn't remember the taste of food and how the Shire looks like. And also when Frodo says to Sam "I'm glad you're here with me Sam, here at the end of all things".

I cried at the end of Titanic, but then again, I was chopping onions at the time.

Anyway, I don't believe I've ever cried during a movie.

I will only say do NOT watch "Grave of the Fireflies." before a wedding.

I think Memento almost made me cry in the "I can't remember to forget you" scene.

I cried ALL the way through "White fang."

Don't even get me started on "The land before time."

When I was very young I once cried about the end of RotJ.

If you didn't cry, you must have been making out: Schindler's List.

The final episode of Rayearth season 2 almost got me, at 22 years of age, no less.  So...Happy.  Oh, yeah, the final Bebop episode also almost got me.

SO...Who's up for seeing "The Passion?"
