Always loved the bit where Darth vader chucks the Emperor over the rail in Jedi.......(really stirs the heart)

When the Dad dies in How green is my valley is very moving.....

The end of Dead ringers....................(the movie)

When old Scrooge (Alastair Sim) walks into the party at his nephew's (very stirring)....

Some memorable ones that spring to mind........................

For some reason movies with dogs have an emotional effect on me:

Marley and Me - when Marley has that sad look on his face at the end
Turner & Hooch - when Hooch gets shot in mid air... in slow-mo
Ol' Yeller - when the dog gets rabies and has to get put down

Also, Gladiator and Braveheart... quite violent, drawn out, cruel endings for Rusty and Mel's characters.

Pretty much all of The Road. Had read the book before I saw the film and it is heartbreaking. The film manages to convey that same sense of horror, dread and hopelessness.

Watched Bowling for Columbine again recently and the first time since my daughter was born. The bit where the dad of one of the victims speaks at a protest rally outside the NRA convention broke my heart. His son had been killed the previous week and he was forcing back tears as he spoke of his death and his outrage at the NRA. Perhaps it's because I am now a father but I don't remember it provoking that feeling in me the first time I saw the film.

One that really surprised me was Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

It's a cartoon for goodness sake, but still, there's a heck of a lot of emotion in the scenes where the Beast releases Belle from her promise to stay with him, so that she can find her father, sick and lost in the woods somewhere (having realised that he loves her and knowing that she can save him), and then when he dies, or at least seems to (just as the magic rose dies and she tells him she loves him back).

Can imagine that a few people other than myself have suddenly found that the room seems to be a bit smoky and/or something has got in their eye when watching.

Deservedly the first animated film ever to be nominated for best picture Oscar in my view.

Cartoons and animations can be very moving.

What about the scene in the Toy Story 3 film when they end up on the conveyor belt heading for the incinerator? One of the saddest most moving things I've seen... exaggerated by the animations.

Crying or Very sad

The other day I was cleaning out the roof space in the shed at Mum's place and a couple of teddy bears and my favourite toy lion fell on my head. They were all covered in dust and falling apart in various states of disintegration. Had to throw them out as they were beyond repair. It kind of shattered me. I thought they were in plastic bags inside the house somewhere!


back to the moving moments..

The little girl in red in Schindler's List. Also some similar scene in Sophie's Choice.

Wasn't a huge fan of Titanic but poor Leo took a while to sink down into the cold waters didn't he?

It's funny but I went home for Christmas........and the toy monkey I got given when I was 8 is still at the folk's house with my name on it......

Kind of sentimental....

Bambi's mother getting splayed is a moving scene..

End of "Field of dreams" always has me welling up...when his Dad is waiting to play ball with him.......

Great shout Superfly. Like you, I read the book first and found it incredibly moving. I went to the cinema filled with dread that the film wouldn't do the book justice but I need not have worried as I thought they handled it brilliantly. The despair and bleakness is captured superbly and the relationship between Mortensen's father and Smit-McPhee's son is acted and scripted with real honesty and emotion. The scene in the 'bunker' when the father and son finally find some respite and peace from the horror above ground is just incredible. The film hits you over and over again and then gives you five minutes of the most beautifully staged peace you can imagine. Great stuff. Robert Duvall's cameo of the wandering old guy is staggeringly good as well. He manages to almost steal the film in a five minute walk on.

McCarthy is a truly great writer.

Well the Bambi thing did it for me when I was four...

A rather obscure 1946 film called
Beware of Pity featured Lilli Palmer as a young aristocratic woman confined to a wheelchair. When she realizes the dashing young officer who has promised to marry her has acted out of pity , not love , she decides to end it all ...just as he belatedly recognizes he really does love her and goes racing frantically back to her home , we see her open the gate on her mountain side balcony , and wheel forward...and of course , he is too late...

It got me.

McCarthy is a truly great writer.

The Road is an incredible book and I'm trying to read more of his stuff. I read All the Pretty Horses and liked that a lot but then made the mistake of going straight into The Crossing which I think was too similar and I stopped about half way through. I keep meaning to pick it up again.

Not sure I'll be able to read or watch The Road again but the book and the film will stay with me for a long time.

Speaking of great literary adaptations, I always find the closing scene of To Kill a Mockingbird incredibly moving. Have read the book god knows how many times and seen the film at least 4 or 5 times but that closing scene always gets me.

Well strangely enough, Superfly, the first thing I did after posting last night was get The Road back off the bookcase and starting reading it again. I can count on the fingers of one hand how many books I have 're-read', but The Road is now joining that list. The book is simply incredible and I know this sounds terribly self-indulgent, but my eldest son is 10 years old which is roughly how old the 'boy' is in the book and I could feel all those emotions I felt reading it first time welling up again. The bleakness and horror interspersed with moments of genuine humanity is just so well paced. I know some people struggle with McCarthy's prose, but it is perfectly paced in The Road. Not sure how I will feel at the end of it but I was instantly hooked again.

Agree on To Kill a Mockingbird as well. It is, for me, the greatest courtroom based film of all time and does justice to a staggeringly good book. Gregory Peck is just superb as Aticus Finch.

Also, going back to Robert Duvall and small cameo parts.......I believe it is his screen debut as Boo Radley!

There are a few.

Million Dollar Baby - When Maggie asks Frankie to inject the adrenaline. Powerful.

The Shawshank Redemption - When Red and Andy meet up at the end. Just the perfect ending.

The ones that get me are:

In Forrest Gump when he is holding the letter from the son at Jenny's grave and telling her smart the kid is. That tugs at the old heart strings.

In Finding Nemo (a cartoon I know), not the bit at the beginning when that shark wipes out his mum and all the other babies but the bit right at the end when Nemo is going off to school and the dad is telling him to be careful etc. Maybe its because I have a 1 year old girl but it gets me every time!

The scene at the end of American History X when Derek runs into the school Tobin his brother.

The very beginning of "Up". No dialogue just wonderful music and animation.

The scene in "Big Fish" where the old man passes away and is having his final story told to him by his son.

Yeah, that one is definitely up there.

For some reason I get choked at the bit in As Good as It Gets when the doctor (Harold Ramis) tells Carol (Helen Hunt) that he is going to be able to treat her son and that he'll feel a lot better.

There are quite a few scenes in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind that are moving.

I'll use this thread to legitimately flag a masterpiece of a film from more than eighty years ago and its largely forgotten star. Produced by Warner Brothers in 1932, I am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang starring Paul Muni (1895 - 1967). A social / crime drama that is a damning indictment of American penal policy at the time. The film and Muni were deserved Oscar nominees although both unluckily ultimately lost out.

I will not spoil the ending but would emphasise that it is not only moving but also dramatic and tragic. A highly recommended film if you ever get the chance to see it - occasionally pops up on TCM. I would equally commend most films featuring Muni - a leading actor Oscar winner just once but six times a nominee.

The ending of Warrior, onwards from when Tommy's arm is broken.

The ending of MIB 3. Little J witnesses his father killed by Boris and K wipes it from his memory, then spends the rest of his life regretting it.

Dark Knight Rises. An unhappy Batman sacrifices himself to save Gotham, he finally remembers fear on his way to doing so and I think that is why he disabled the autopilot?

Assume you're talking about the final scene, has to rank as one of the, if not the, greatest scene ever in cinema, gets me every time.

The Green Mile - when John Coffey asks not to have the blindfold when he's in the electric chair because he's afraid of the dark.

I was in bits...

The bit in ET where Elliott thinks that ET is dead but then sees the flower come back to life and realise that ET is coming back to life too. Amazing!

Also nominate a little heard of film with Timothy Dalton and Anthony Edwards called "Hawks" - the end wedding scene also is truly moving.

The scene in Shawshank Redemption when Andy Dufresne plays the duet from Marriage of Figaro with Red's voiceover.

When Mufasa dies in The Lion King.

Tend to see things abit more emotionally when in a hungover state.

Oh my word! I had forgotten that. What a film and what a scene, nice one Boss thumbsup

In Cemetery Junction when Bruce shares a beer with his dad, after years of giving him grief, wrongly blaming him for his mother leaving.

One scene that always gets me going is in Apollo 13 when they're waiting for the astronauts to come out of 'blackout' and there's no response for ages, everyone's expecting the worst and then you hear Tom Hanks' voice over the radio "Hello, Houston. This is Odyssey. It's good to see you again". Cue bedlam.
