The death of Arthur at the end of "Excalibur" when Lancelot returns the sword to the lake. Many films have a chopped version of a classical piece of music to fit, Excalibur has the film wrapped around Siegfried's funeral march as the soundtrack. Stunning and moving.

The Richard Gere movie with the dog (an Akita) that waited for him every day at the railway station. I can't remember the name. (Edit : Hachi / Hachiko)

Definitely the film of my first wedding and, for a completely different reason, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - allegedly I was dragged screaming from the cinema and all the lights went up - to the consternation of "young lovers" in the back row .... - when I took issue with Snow White biting into the poisoned apple!

PS Dwarfs v Dwarves, anyone?

It's immaterial. They both go the same distance when thrown.

Not a film - although one day it may become one - but if you ever see "War horse" on stage take a lot of tissues with you. It is truly heart breaking. I'm almost sixty years of age, 6' 2" and fourteen stone of wrinkled bits and I cried like a baby!

As in this one, Phil?

Steven Spielberg pictured filming new blockbuster War Horse on Dartmoor

For me, 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' with Alan Rickman brings on the waterworks every time.

Actually, the biggest outbreak of male blubbing I witnessed was at the premiere of 'Braveheart' at Aberdeen Odeon back whenever it was. All these loons had got kitted up in the regalia, blue faces and all. They looked like a bunch of freshly jilted sophomore girls all smeary and teary. There was even a round of damp handed applause at the end. I was petrified to open my mouth and reveal my traitorous expatriate tones, lest I be mistaken for one of them. It could have turned ugly........

The Bucket List - Jack Nicolson's speech at Morgan Freeman's funeral and Jack seeing his granddaughter and receiving a kiss on the cheek (No. 2 or 3 on the list - kissing the most beautiful girl in the world) Seen it umpteen times, still cry like a baby at those scenes. A truly magnificent movie.

Don't worry, BF, it didn't turn out to be as bad as it looks.


From Wiki:

"The Lamborghini Miura that has an unfortunate accident in the opening scenes was a real Miura P400 that was on test plates, and then was sold as "new" afterwards. The car that is tumbled down by the Mafia's bulldozer was an original Miura which had suffered a serious accident sometime before and killed its driver, an Arab prince.

Charlie Croker picks up his Aston Martin DB4 convertible from a garage after his release from prison. The garage scene in the film was mostly improvised by Caine and John Clive, which caused visible lighting irregularities since the crew didn't know where the actors would be. According to several sources, the car that was pushed off the cliff was actually a Lancia Flaminia mocked up as an Aston. The original Aston belongs today to a private English collection. The two E-type Jaguars that suffered from the Mafia's revenge were restored to their original condition."

I don't think that I've actually ever seen it but...

Watership Down seems to set most people off.
Read the book.

Saw the movie.

But loved the pie!
