If I have enough liquor in me, any poignant or beautiful film can make me misty.  Here's a few that always get me:
CINEMA PARADISO
THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES
CINDERELLA LIBERTY
SOUNDER
ORDINARY PEOPLE
MY LIFE AS A DOG
LA STRADA
NIGHTS OF CABIRIA
REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
WUTHERING HEIGHTS
THE YOUNG VISITERS
(spelling correct)

Well, the only one I can think of that had me holding back tears was the sequence near the end of Grave of the Fireflies with the song "There's No Place Like Home" playing in the background. (No spoilers on why it's so heart-wrenching; you'll have to see it for yourself.)

BRIAN'S SONG chokes me up every time.

I also saw Kong in a theater in 1976. After Kong falls all the way down from the top of the Trade Tower, he is completely still and the audience is silent.

The ending of Star Trek 2, obviously.  I grew up with the crew of the Enterprise.  Watching Spock go is like watching my grandfather pass away.  (I introduced my kids to this a few months ago, after they had seen enough of the original series for it to make sense to them.  Not a dry eye in the house.)

Someone else mentioned the ending of It's a Wonderful Life; for me, the scene that does it is when George comes home after the money's gone missing, and just demolishes the little architectural models he's been building in the corner of the room.

I haven't really cried over a movie, but oddly enough, there are two movies recently that had me, not cry, but tear up.

E.T.- I caught it about a month ago and honestly haven't seen it since I was about 6.  The end when they're taking E.T. to his ship and Elliot's telling him to stay and whatnot kinda hit me all of a sudden. 

The Muppet Movie- Gonzo's song in the desert "I'm Going To Go Back There Someday."  Such a sad song.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I tear up easily . . . SAVING PRIVATE RYAN gets me, so does the part in RETURN OF THE KING when Sam carries Frodo on his back u pthe slopes of Mount Doom, and also the parting scene at the Grey Havens.  Also that scene in THE PATRIOT where Benjamin Martin's little girl comes running after screaming "Daddy!  Please stay.  I'll say anything!  Anything you want!"  I absolutely cannot watch that without tearing up.

Ah, yes. Star Trek 2 was another one. Spock's death and funeral gets me a little choked up every time.

As for It's a Wonderful Life, I usually start around the time George sees Harry's grave, and I'm getting more choked up by the time George is pleading for his life. I usually lose it when he gets home and there is the huge outpouring of joy. And if I manage to hold it in through that, the inscription "No man is a failure who has friends" is the icing on the cake.

 The Lion King always gets me.

 This is going to sound kind of lame, but The Game Plan made me cry, too.

 So does Radio.

The ending of It's a Wonderful Life does it to me every time.

Me too.

I can think of a ton of movies...

More recently, "The Last Man on Earth"... the part when Vincent Price starts laughing crazily and then starts sobbing.

Isn't that one of those "kidnappers come to love the little girl they abduct" movies?  I think I saw it fifteen years ago or so, but I don't remember anything particularly sad.
