    The ones that hit closest to home. Made ya ball up and sob to yourself, or, if your an empty husk, think to yourself, "oh dang, how sad."
    For me, it'd definitely be warrior. If ya haven't seen it, ya need to. Now. I love the family dynamic, and the ending.
    made me ball, even though I don't got no siblings. Also that freakin' song gets me every time. I now have a emotional attachment to it thatakes me cry if I here even a sliver of it.

    The Strangers The ending didn't hit me in a sad way but a more realistic creepy way. Since at any moment I could have some group of randoms who kill me just for being home.

    Grave of the Fireflies

    I got the emotional feels at the end of Toy Story 4.

    Big Fish.

    The advertising at the time really fooled me, I thought it was a Baron Munchhausen style big silly story fun film. And since my grandfather (who was also my best friend) had just passed away, a fun movie like that was in order.

    Yeah. (In case you don't know, Big Fish is about an Adult Son whose elderly father always told larger than life stories is dying. The last act, the elderly father dies, and his son, finally forgiving him for his tall tales, tells the epic story of how his father dies.)

    I'm glad the theater was mostly empty at the showing, because I cried and cried.

    Not a whole film, but Yondu's funeral in GotG2 brought me close to tears thinking of my dad's passing a couple of years earlier. I think if the scene had gone on a few seconds longer, I would have cracked. I'd actually had plans to see the film again a week or so later with a friend, but had to cancel because I didn't think I could sit through it again so soon :(

    Wreck It Ralph at the end, when he’s falling towards the volcano. And then again at the very end, when he looks over & can see Vanellope in her game.

    Movies rarely make me cry ("You get back in there, tear!" - Officer Earl, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), so most instances are from when I was younger.
    2 I can remember:

    The Muppet Movie - saw it on TV and the song The Rainbow Connection made me cry. It was lunchtime and I was still sobbing when my parents and I sat down to eat.
    E.T. - I didn't technically cry at the end...but that was because I started goofing off with my friend in the theatre to keep myself from crying :p 

    More recently...
    The Muppets. - Yes, another Muppet one. Near the end when they all join hands while singing...I was a 35-year-old man about to lose it right there in the theatre. For me, it goes back to when I was 4 watching the Muppet Show on TV, so I have a big connection to them.

    "There's no one I'd rather be...than ME."
    I totally get that volcano scene. Gives me the feels too. Mainly, I'm just so grateful that a movie filled with retro gaming references turned out to have so much heart. One of my all-time favorites.

    I was talking about this with some friends recently.

    I saw The Departed for the first time not top long ago and towards the end it was actually making me really angry. The very last scene was a good release for that, lol. Doubt I would feel as strongly watching it again cause I know what happens now.

    Endgame made me cry both times I saw it, as did a couple of fanwanky parts of Rise of Skywalker. But those were more "this is coming to an end" type things, I guess.

    The movie that resonates with me the most emotionally is probably The Last Crusade which is also my favorite movie of all time. I'm sure next time I sit down and watch it all the way through I'll get a little misty eyed.

    Wow, I truly thought I was the only person who would EVER name Big Fish as that kind of movie. All these years later, I still cite it as the one that just absolutely tore me down and gutted me. And I've never watched it again all the way through other than the first time. Can't do it.

    Other kinds of movies that always get me are ANYTHING where an animal is a somewhere central focus and gets hurt, killed or is even just in distress, most movies where as spouse dies of a disease or elderly age, and pretty much any true story of bravery resulting in death. All those scenarios make it pretty difficult for me to keep my composure.

    As a little kid, Iron Giant made me cry so hard I've never watched it since.

    A very obvious answer, but 1917. Such sacrifices made, and a reminder of what a comfortable, selfish existence i lead.

    Yeah. And at the end, with, “If that little girl loves me, then how bad could I be?”
    Right in the feels every time.

    The Iron Giant got a lot of people. I don’t think anyone was expecting it to have a “bawl your eyes out moment.”

    I don't cry during or after a movie. It's just a movie after all. I have had a few tear up moments, but no flat out crying. I guess I have no soul.

    Terminator 2: Judgement Day had one of them.

    Way too many movies and tv episodes have had me come close to blubbering like the man child I am.
