There's so many for me. Here are just a few:

ET--the ending
Schindler's List--"I could have done more!"
LOTR:TTT--Gandalf's final charge at Helm's Deep
Dances With Wolves--final scene
Almost Famous--"Tiny Dancer"
Say Anything--the boombox(need I say more?)

Last night I watched THE REMAINS OF THE DAY. When Stevens lets Ms. Kenting leave on the bus, I was half way to sobbing, and halfway to pounding my head against the wall in exasperation. Great movie.

In Deer Hunter

Spoiler:
During the Russian Roulette scenes, the one with De Niro and Savage and De Niro and Walken. Gets to me every time.


Spoiler:
Also when Nick plays against Michael at the end and then says "one shot" and shoots himself, I cry like a baby. It hits you right there.

- Imitation of Life - The Ending

- Cocoon- The final scene between Bernie and his wife Rose.

- Dad - The Ending

- The Crow - There's actually a few, but the one that sticks out for me is the final dialogue between T-Bird and Eric.

- Superman - Death of Pa Kent...sometimes I just get emotional watching the film....don't know why...

Spoiler:
When Big John is shot by his live in jealous lover. Some people may think I am sick, but even though he loved young boys I still wanted him to live for Howie because he had no one. And really Big John didn't either. Maybe this is why it didn't get a wide release? Sympathy for a sick person?
Don't worry, I thought that was emotional too...

I'd say Se7en and American History X's endings are up there...

when Palmer Joss tells Ellie "prove it"

similarly in the Hulk
when Bruce tells Betty "yes, I was"

in both cases, a single line of dialouge sums up and gets to the heart of the larger themes the movies are dealing with.
beautiful, exhilarating...when broad themes are distilled in art so simply and concisely, i am really moved.

Deep Impact

When, on the crammed highway, Leelee Sobieski's charachter gets handed her baby sister to take away to safety, while her parents stay behind knowing they will be killed by the impending asteroid impact.

Maybe not the most emotional in history but it was well done.
