What movies make you cry?

Ok, I just watched Big Fish a couple of nights ago. I got more than a bit misty-eyed and my wife (who rarely cries during movies) was crying rivers. So I figured, everyone needs to 'fess up. What movies make you get misty or downright cry?

For me:
Big Fish
A River Runs Through It
Sense & Sensibility (at the end - when main character starts crying hysterically)
E.T. (I took a girl on a date to this movie when it was first released - man did I look like a wimp!)
Platoon

Movies that I cried in the theater (that I can remember):

Star Trek II
E.T.
My Life
Forrest Gump
Somewhere In Time
The Iron Giant (we're talking Niagara Falls, baby...what a great movie!)

Surprisingly, movies that DIDN'T make me cry:

Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan
Titanic

I can honestly say that I have never cried at a movie. However, there is one movie that always brings me close. For this, I am always ridiculed, because this isn't your typical tear inducing movie. I always feel like crying when I watch...

Best of the Best - During the final round of the competition, when Eric Roberts reinjures his shoulder, he is screaming out in agony "Pop it, pop it!!!". For some reason, I always get a lump in my throat. I have always been an athlete, and I guess that is why it resonates with me. It gets me every time!

My Dog Skip, its because I have 2 Jack Russells, and it gets me everytime. Also a documentary called Shelter Dogs is the most depressing thing I have ever watched. I dont know why, but for some reason, human suffering and sadness in movies doesnt really choke me up, but put a dog in there and I cry like a little girl.

That scene even makes my 2-year old cry.

Most recently, I found "Finding Nemo" to be a difficult experience. All of those Pixar films, especially Toy Story 2 and parts of Monsters Inc have that effect...

Can only think of two off hand & can't say I've really cried but I get "flustered"

any good movie w/ the crucifixion of Christ (thinking more about the actual event itself than what's on the screen)

The scene in Immortal Beloved where w/ "Ode to Joy" he's pretty much completely deaf and can't hear the recognition he's receiving until someone turns him around (again it's not so much the movie but thinking about the fact it's based on a true incident from what I understand).
