I'm not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears at 'The Road' yesterday. I probably cried more during the film than I did reading the book.

Most recently Where the Wild Things Are, and I can't even explain why, only that I was an emotional wreck whilst watching it.

I watched Fur for the third time the other night, and still it managed to make me cry. It's just plain wrong.

Many of my key offenders have already been listed, but my number one has to be Grave Of The Fireflies (don't think it's been mentioned yet).

Truly heartbreaking, and turned me into a blubbering mess of man flab for about half an hour afterwards

I am such a wuss....

A new addition is the scene in Star Trek (2009) where Kirk's father accelerates the USS Kelvin straight at the Romulans' Narada, just as his wife gives birth to the awesome that is James Tiberius Kirk...

But it's an awesome scene at the same time.  So few blockbusters can emotionally engage you these days....

I agree with you there. Ever since becoming a family man, scenes of loss of loved ones, became a lot more hard hitting!

Went to see Toy Story 2 3D again today. That part where Jessie reminisces about her owner gets me every time.

Also there's:

Brotherhood
Rocky
Rocky Balboa
Empire Strikes Back (the end with the wonderful score, and the optimistic yet downbeat ending)
ROTJ - (When everything is right in the galaxy)
Bridge To Terabithia - even my kids were sobbing
Star Trek
The Wrestler
Brokeback Mountain - the obvious, and it gets me even more now, as the wife walked down the aisle to Wings.

The Passion of The Christ, and the scene in Where The Wild Things Are where Max says goodbye to them and Carol doesn't get to say a proper goodbye and he cries and howls. There's a few more, but I can't remeber.

I've just now rewatched Up and that montage at the beginning just cannot be praised enough. I'm always left  in pieces.

I also agree with the poster above that fatherhood changes your tolerance for tear jerkers. I honestly don't know if I'll ever be able to watch Life is Beautiful again, since becoming a dad.

Brief Encounter has made me cry the most out of any film.

Up was the most recent.

If they ever make a film out of Coram Boy (I think Alan Parker was developing it?) then I would be extremely disappointed if I didn't cry. My shoulders were shaking when I saw the stage version at the National Theatre.

As did I, but I suspect for entirely different reasons. I want those 2 hours back, damnit.

As for a film that made me feel a range of emotions, I'd have to go with American History X.

Dark Blue World (Tmavomodry Svet)

Titanic (the scene with the band playing "Nearer my God to Thee" over the montage of the other passengers)
Seabiscuit
Champions (the Grand National scene. The music for this sequence is fucking spectacular)
Hidalgo (Viggo Mortensen saying goodbye at the end)
Into the West

Up in 2 places. One the obvious point after the montage, again not long after when Carl gets arrested for bonking the guy on the head.

When i was younger i cried at the end of ET and short circuit when he got blown up, but i get upset during ROTJ when the ewoks are getting killed by the imperial troops on endor and at the end party sequence i think it's mostly to do with the soundtrack more than anything else.

So many to choose from...these are the ones which spring to mind

Platoon
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Edward Scissorhands
The Crucible
Titanic
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Finding Nemo
Toy Story
- when all of the cowboy merchandise is replaced with Buzz Lightyear stuff..
Son of Rambow - when Lee makes the speech about his brother.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - both the end, and the "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head" scene
Stand By Me - Chris and Gordy at the campfire, and the very end.
When Harry Met Sally - "You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you, and I hate you, Harry. I really hate you. I hate you." Every time I see that film, that part makes me cry.

Agreed. Also having kids opens the doors for the kind of films you wouldn't normally watch, most of them having some kind of tear-inducing moment.
The classic for that is The Iron Giant. My kids kept saying "Are you crying Daddy? Are you crying?"
"No kids, I've got something in my eye. Well, both eyes actually"
