Saw Return of the Jedi. Luke killed his own father. It was so sad, it would have been better if he joined Darth Vader to rule the galaxy together.
It was so terrible that a father and son fought. Ten when Luke dragged Darth to the shuttle but none of the storm troopers thought to intervene and save their boss from being abducted by rebel scum. Imagine the performance bonus if they popped a blaster bolt in Luke.

THE BICYCLE THIEF! Great f***ing movie. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I remember how it was amazing how well things came together, considering that they pretty much just gave the actors the general story structure and let them run with it. If I recall, both the scene with boy who almost drowns and the scene with the people in the church were both totally unplanned, and kind of just happened.
Dragon:The Bruce Lee story...the part where he is fighting the demon during the monsoon...and then Brandon get's the demon's attention and the music starts playing really loud when he whips out the numnchuckas and he does the immitation Bruce Lee scream while he strangles the demon to death....it's more of a happy tearjerker moment...like...yea yea!!!
^ same here! the part where alice jumps off the cliff after uncas dies trying to save her! i loved the parts with uncas and alice...and didn t care much for the rest of the movie once both had died...i don t think i remember how the story actually ends...i think in the book cora is actually the sister? i don t remember but i think they inversed some roles in the movie as i was confused when i watched it after reading the book...

^i think it has a lot to do with the music usually though.
Definitely what gets me. I'm not sure I've ever been induced to cry during a movie when there wasn't music playing at the emotionally charged moment, but I've cried countless times when there it was playing. Braveheart comes to mind - something so sad about bagpipe music - as well as any movie about the holocaust (queue Itzhak Perlman violin solo).
I'm a distant cousin of Singaporean pop sensation Dìck Lee. Bruce would have been a lot cooler but I'll take it.
