    Most recently, Blood Diamond.

    Damn that's an amazing film. It's got great action, and is also about something quite important!

    I saw something on pixar the other day that, amongst other things, demonstrated why their films always make you cry.

    Obviously, nothing in those films happens by accident but they showed how they focussed the montage scene in 'up' like a fucking laserbeam. They drafted in specialists in weepie films, literature and all kinds of people, it went through multiple re-writes until it, basically, made everyone they showed it to cry.

    So, yeah, when something in a pixar movie moves you to tears, its taken a *lot* of work to deliberately make you do that.

    They had a wheat specialist in to confirm whether or not the furnace scene could make you cry through a slice of hovis.

    Field of Dreams
    The Fifth Element (when Bruce is telling Mila how much he loves her)

    Probably some others.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I don't think there's anyone on the internet who hasn't seen it.
    Actually, even through my biggest J-Fag phase, I didnt bother watching it because it had no exploding heads and/or tentacle sex.

    Anime without those two key elements is like football without a ball or a revan post without its many grammatical and factual errors.

    This has been quite true for me too. Pixar can really mess with my emotions too.

    Hence:

    Up
    The happy bit at the end of Monsters Inc


    ET nearly broke me as a child. Saw it in the cinema and tried so hard not to well up, but Spielberg schmaltziness beat me in the end.

    War films often get me too.

    The medic's end in saving private ryan and the end of Das Boot always upset me too.

    Not a film, but in streams of tears at the end of Lost.

    But in my defence I had been watching it non-stop for weeks to reach that point and I really don't want to die.

    In an unrelated note, I think it's time we as a community move beyond phrases such as the OPs "Doesn't make you gay." as if that is assumed to be a distasteful condition. "Doesn't make you a pussy." would have sufficed.

    Full-disclosure: I like a tasty cock as much as the next man, but I myself am not gay (not that there's anything wrong with it).

    Only Cool Runnings has ever made me cry.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Up and the last Harry Potter film both had me tearing up.

    And seriously, what's up with bashing other people's film choices?

    One from the past springs to mind. Silent Running. I remember watching it late at night as a 11 or 12 year old. Couldn't believe how attached I got to the wee robots Huey, Dewey and Louis.

    Recent watching would be El Orfanato. Really affected me that film.

    I've never had a full on blub when watching a movie but I certainly well up a lot more since having kids.

    The Green Mile.  I defy you not to shed a tear during this film.
    I took my daughter to see 'Up' at the cinema, and although the film was pretty shot as a whole... the bit where the old guy was reminiscing about meeting his missus and everything left a lump on my throat.
    Let The Right One In, not because it is massively sad, it is just a wonderful film about friendship over adversity.
    Embarrassingly, the first time I watched The Simpsons movie I was a bit overwhelmed at the end when Homer went all out to save Springfield and Bart chose to go back to his family rather than stay with Ned and co.
    I have on a few occasions, when letting wifey choose a dvd, had to disguise a tear at the end of The Wedding Singer. The bit on the plane when he sings the song over the tannoy and Billy Idol (I used to work for his dad don't you know) shoved the macho bloke with the trolley. It really is a beautiful moment.

    Grave of the Fireflies and Transformers.

    The original that is, though the Michael Bay one almost made me cry too.
