Basically what the title says. I just got done watching "Schindler's List," and oh my god, I bawled my fucking eyes out at the end. I highly recommend that movie. It's beyond words.

Field of Dreams makes me sad every time. I lost my dad when I was six and wish I could have just one game of catch with him. Kind of like how the father and son play catch in the movie.

I was about to answer with Schindler's List. cry every time. don't care who knows it.

There are movies with maybe one or two major sad moments, but I am not sure I have ever watched a movie which had as many sad moments as Schindler's List did.

I did think of John Q randomly but that is certainly up there. Denzel Washington's character has a ton which needs a heart transplant and he is determined to do whatever he can to get help for him. that has a ton of tearjerker moments

Yeah, the way Schindler's List was created was very realistic. The scenes they created with all the extras were as close to reality as possible. No lives were truly in danger of course, but it was all incredibly realistic. Steven Spielberg when shooting the movie, was in tears all the time, and had to have his family there to console him. The best part is that he didn't make a dime from the movie because he said it would be making money from a tragedy. He was right. And what really got to me is that Schindler would have never been happy with himself. He wanted to be able to save everyone. Even if he did sell the car and his gold pin, and got to save twelve more people, it still wouldn't have been enough. At the end, when Schindler was among all the thousands of people he saved, he said that he didn't do enough and how if he sold his car, he could have saved more people. "Why did I keep the car? Ten people right there.." That scene was the most heart-wrenching of them all for me. Even if he was able to save ten more people, it wouldn't have been enough in his eyes. He did his very best, but it just wasn't enough in his eyes. He truly wanted to erase everything that was done, but couldn't.

and to think how far Schindler came. he was never an evil man, but he started his venture to make a fortune (after several unsuccessful attempts to do so). he ended up making more than enough money than he could ever spend and he gave it all up to save people. Schindler struggled financially the rest of his life (his life is kind of tragic in those regards). but generations are and will continue to live because of him.

and to think there are people who try to say it is all fake. I am not even going to try to go down that road too much because that pisses me off when I start hearing that

haha well I am very glad I read the bottom of your post sir. I was worried for sure. that movie wasn't as quite heart wrenching all the way through as Schindler's List (though it was clear they made Boy in the Striped Pajamas for a wider audience) I was not prepared for the ending :( I should have been considering what the movie was about but I wasn't

He wasn't necessarily evil, but he wasn't really good either. He didn't care that people were dying. That all changed, and that's all that matters. Schindler's life after the war was sad indeed.

To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the Boy in the Striped Pajamas. I felt like the movie was okay at best. It really seemed like it rested all of its greatness on the subject matter of the film. It's hard to say that it's a bad film because if you do, it'll be offensive. The tragic and sad ending of it pissed me off more than anything. Like, all Schmuel had to do was crawl under the fence towards Bruno, and then Schmuel could've escaped. Plus, the side drama between the father and mother was peculiar. the Mother started to feel bad about what was happening, but it must've taken a long time to kick in because the father was not new to that line of work. She should've seen that her husband was going to be the commander of fucking Auschwitz and had mental red flags going up like "Hey, maybe my husband isn't a very nice guy..." Anyways, I'm talking in circles.

"The Passion of the Christ" and "Saving Private Ryan". I can't watch either of those ever again.

The most emotional movie I ever saw was Titanic (Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet) and good holy god was that an emotional rollercoaster. I didn't cry though, and at the end I thought "meh, whatever". Does this make me a bad person? lol.

Like all my favorite movies are sad and mad emotional so I'm gonna say it's a tie between End of Evangelion and Everything Will Be Alright in the End, which are both like slightly experimental animated films and both friggin great but also i cant really explain any of them

Well Holocaust movies are always emotional, even though there are some that aren't.
I think "The Pianist" is also an emotional movie as well.
also:
Saving Private Ryan, Stand By Me, Finding Neverland, Titanic (I KNOW....)

A dog's purpose is the most recent emotional movie, but the most ever is E.T, followed closely by Old Yeller.

Dude I lost it when Schindler kept saying how he could have saved more people until he broke down crying and the people he saved all came to his aide and hugged him. I'm not a very emotional person, but that was some real stuff.

If you don't cry watching that movie you don't have a soul or a heart.

Camino, a 2008 spanish film about a girl named Alexia González-Barros, who died in 1985 because of spinal cancer. I never was so emotional watching anything until I saw this film. You have to watch it.

Also, The Boy In The Stripped Pajamas, Mary and Max are also pretty high in the list.

Forrest Gump is the only movie that has shed a tear from my eye. The scene with Forrest asking Jenny if little Forrest is "like me" (like big Forrest) is so emotional and it really emphasizes what a great actor Tom Hanks is.

Some that hit me with a lot of emotion are:

- Ruby Sparks
- Hope Springs
- Braveheart

There are more I'm sure, but the emotions that these conjure up every time I watch them are striking. It's not always bawling my eyes out, but there are defiantly emotions being had. Great. Now I want to watch Braveheart.

Probably joined between Hachiko: A Dog's Tale and Schlinder's List. Boy in Striped Pyjamas is also quite emotional for me.
