Oddly enough, the ending of The Wild Geese with Richard Burton talking to his dead friend's son always gets me.

The last few minutes of Armageddon [from "We win, Gracie!" to the end] always leave me blubbing. It's a combination of the good acting, great music by my homeboy Trevor Rabin, great cinematography and the fact that I am a complete wussy when it comes to emotional film endings.*

* I actually blub as much as Michael Clarke Duncan does at the wedding.  Wink

Not an ending but when I went to go see the re-release of Star Wars in the theater I cried at the beginning.  It was just a thrill seeing the scroll on the big screen for the first time. This behavior followed me through all the prequels which of course ending up blowing.  

Not an ending: I experienced the same phenomenon when I saw "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" in the theatre the day it was released.  I was overcome by the feeling that it was back after so many years and that feeling lasted through the whole opening sequence.  (Yes, I had a lot of emotion invested in the original series!)

Although I was only 12 when I saw STTMP in 1979, I liked it then and it is IMO better than the so-called Director's Cut.

We watched Free Willy last weekend. I'd never actually seen it before, so I was kind of surprised by how moved I was by the ending. Didn't cry, but definitely got a little weepy.

You young pup, I was 15 when I saw it   TeddyR  I also liked the original better than the Director's Cut.  Unfortunately it's the Director's Cut I've got on DVD.

Another film - not an ending - was 2 Days In The Valley.  A guy is going to commit suicide, and his little dog is there barking at him.  And he's explaining to the dog how he'll have to take care of himself, and I think apologizing to the dog.  Oh man, I'm a softy for sad scenes with animals.   Smile

Return Of The Jedi

Oy, the memories.....Luke seeing his father and his mentors keeping a fond eye on him, even Yoda seems to be smiling.... that got me too but it's a good sad feeling: they've gone, but they're still there.  Bluesad

Damn, now I've gone all  Bluesad

Police Academy. When Mahoney and the rest of the misfits graduate and finally earn that salute from Lt. Harris, I swear, I just lost it.

I will say one thing for the Director's Cut - until they'd added the new effects, I could never figure out what the hell V'Ger was supposed to look like as a whole. They only had extreme close-ups and weird angles.

Can't say ST:TMP affected me very much emotionally when I saw it, although on later viewings I did discover a fetish for bald women.

I've cried during movies, but not at the end.
However, I did cry at the end of the Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark."

Oh yeah, that's a great one.

a lot of people I know have cried at the end of "Jurassic Bark."


Yeah, that's pretty much the litmus test to determine whether someone has a soul or not.

I've never seen that episode so I googled it and yes, I would cry after seeing that ending.  Bluesad


I came pretty close myself. I read some behind the scenes stuff on that, originally it was supposed to be his mother instead of the dog, but it was agreed (and rightfully so) that it would have been beyond depressing. Apparently they still got a lot of hate mail from people who cried over it, to the point that it was later retconned via time travel.

Yep that one got me to and I came very close to crying in The Sting episode.

Another ending that got me going was the ending of Cool Runnings where the Jamaican bobsled team become the heroes of the Winter Olympics despite coming in last.

German competitor: "You done good Jamaica: we'll see you in four years, yah?"
Derice: "Yeah, mon!"  TeddyR

That is what the Olympics is all about.  Thumbup

Ah yes, the hard-won respect of the most skeptical rival. Can't remember if there was a slow clap involved. TeddyR

Believe it or not, there is also a Jamaican dogsled team. It figures that Jimmy Buffett would be their main sponsor. http://www.jamaicadogsled.com/

MASK (1985)

How DARE you bring that one up?!?!?  I've spent years trying to forget the ending...

"These things are good: ice cream and cake, a ride on a harley, seeing monkeys in the trees, the rain on my tongue, and the sun shining on my face. These things are a drag: dust in my hair, holes in my shoes, no money in my pocket, and the sun shining on my face. "
