10. The Luck of the Fryish, Futurama, 2001



A cartoon, FFS!




Probably my fave episode - it runs the full spectrum of emotion. Jurrasic Bark is also devastating, but this one, yeah.

Good pick of Futurama - I wept in both that episode and the previously mentioned Jurassic Bark (which was just a really cruel episode).

11. Tim and Dawn kiss, The Office Christmas Special, 2003



So wonderfully (under)played by both actors, and the fact that you see it coming for a few seconds before Tim finds out she's back is just...Jesus, I'm tearing up now. Actually, I start losing it when she opens her present in the car. Wonderful moment from a wonderful final episode.

12. Boromir just keeps on fighting, FotR, 2001



Although his dying words to Aragorn (brother, captain, king) are just as moving, it's just before that gets me misty eyed. Boromir after taking an arrow to the body, keeps fighting, takes another, keeps fighting; only the third arrow stops him. Using his dying breath to protect Merry and Pippin, showing that at heart that he's not a bad person. And then once Boromir has no more fight in him, the two Hobbits burst out of the bushes in a futile attempt to avenge their fallen comrade.

The Office is an amazing choice. From Tim's speech when Dawn leaves ("Life goes on..."), to her unwrapping the present, the brilliant use of Yazoo, and then the kiss... (damn it, now I'm tearing up...) yeah, I'm a big fan.

Boromir is also great, but I'd probably go for his dying speech.

Soem great choices here, but Dawn and Tim... wow. I was practically bawling the first time I saw it. Like what's already been said, when she opened the present was what tipped me over the edge. It's a perfect scene

Would be the most emotional for me as well if it weren't for The Black Gates through to the Grey Havens. Nothing else in film makes me cry like that sequence.

Keeping track eh? I will get to it eventually, once I make my way through the multitude of films I have to see first.

Of course. These things matter. I have a checklist of forumites who have yet to see The Hobbit and they'll soon start feeling my wrath!

I haven't seen it. My cinema-bound flatmates "jokingly" banned me from seeing it with them, in case I complained about all the walking and generally ruined it for them. They didn't enjoy it anyway.

To be fair, I considered going to see it in 48fps just to see what the fuss was about, then I thought, hey I could also watch other films. True story.

Futurama is a scumbag because it says it's a comedy but makes you cry. I guess they put the hat on Fry because he is the lead character.

Are you not continuing the list?

Anyway, I very VERY rarely cry at movies or TV, but the ending of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo absolutely kills me (the Fincher one, since it has the book's ending). Even when I just think about it, my stomach feels hollow and the tears slowly slide down. You've gotta love Lisbeth Salander (I have dreams about her all the time). So that would be the most heartbreaking for me.

When I was about 7 or 8, I was crying buckets when I watched Return Of The Jedi for the first time because I desperately wanted Vader's good side to return. It was unbelievable. Since then, a lump in my throat is pretty much the closest I'd get; with LOTR: ROTK, Schindler's List, A.I., Up etc. Walle came dangerously close in the scene where (SPOILER ALERT) you think his mind has been wiped clean (when that tape just plays static...oh my god).

But the first time that I properly cried at something like that since Return Of The Jedi was a little while before seeing Fincher's Dragon Tattoo. Now, this one's a TV show; 24 season 8...

BIG-TIME SPOILER HERE, PEOPLE!

....Renee's death. Ho. Ly. Shit. That just destroyed me. I was sitting there in utter shock for about 20 minutes and then this single, solitary tear rolled down my face. It was a hell of a moment.

So there you go, those are my all-time tear jerking moments. But to quote Hannibal Lecter, "If I think of anything else, I will let you knooooow."
