Strange topic, I know but I have a few:

The ending of Star Trek (reboot) where Mr Nimoy says the famous phrase and the Enterprise shoots off into space.
The ending of The X Files: I Want To Believe with Gillian Anderson smiling at her patient as if to say "I'm going to heal you."
The ending of Uwe Boll's Darfur where life is found in a dead village....  Bluesad Bluesad Bluesad
The ending (and indeed the prior ten minutes) of To Heal A Nation...... yowza.
The ending of Jans Rautenbach's Katrina ~ if you don't cry at the end of that, you don't have tear ducts in your head.

A couple of these have always gotten to me but I get way more emotional while watching movies than I used to.

The "Superman..." part of The Iron Giant which was basically at the end.
The Elephant Man - Adagio for Strings makes it worse!
House (1977) - The last couple minutes or so, I don't know why, but it gets to me and I can't explain it.
Save the Green Planet - The closing credits!  Combination of lovely music and touching scenes reflecting the life of the main character.  Just makes the whole strange film hit home all of a sudden.  It's actually heartbreaking.
Ran - Where Tsurumaru is on the edge of that cliff.
I may have cried at the end of Changeling (2008).  I don't know, I cried a few times during it.

I'm sure there are others, but those came off the top of my head.

Imitation of Life (1959) - the coffin, the daughter. That was just too much. I cried like a baby  Bluesad

Marley & Me- the only movie I can think of that had me going.

Except for maybe Brian's Song.

THE IRON GIANT - self-explanatory
SECONDHAND LIONS - when Walter realizes Garth wasn't making that stuff up after all. 
THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS - when Chaz says "I've had a rough year, Dad." to Royal; not right at the end but pretty close
UP - actually I started crying at the "married life" montage and just didn't stop

I'm gonna cheat a little and count TV - the veterans being interviewed at the end of BAND OF BROTHERS.  "Grandpa, were you a hero in the war? Grandpa said 'No, but I served with a company of heroes.'" 
God, I got misty just typing that!

The end of Gladiator and the Crow made me well up a little. But I swear I was drunk!

Titanic.  There I said it.  It wasn't an actual cry, it was a tears welling up sort of thing.

Yeah, I know - I'll never live this one down.   TongueOut

I didn't cry at the end, but in the midst of the ship sinking there's a bit where a random man is putting his kids on a lifeboat, and he tells them he'll be on the next boat, knowing full well he won't be....that got to me.

     The President's speech in INDEPENDENCE DAY.
Logged

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
