    Any movie with a dog in it and the dog dies. To this day I can't rewatch Old Yeller, Lassie Come Home, Where the Red Fern Grows, Call of the Wild...

    Star Trek XI, when the Kelvin is destroyed.
    Ordinary People, when Conrad finds out what happened to Karen.
    Silent Running, when Dewey is watering the garden at the end.
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind, when Roy decides to leave it all behind.
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, when Jen jumps off Mount Wudang.

    And others.

    I should have specified, of the movies I've seen. I have not seen Cujo.

    How about a more recent example (non-dog related)?

    Dobby's death in the Harry Potter movies.

    Oh, you'd hate A Dog's Purpose, then. The dog keeps dying and getting reincarnated over and over again.

    Toy Story 2 — during the montage of Jessie the Cowgirl’s owner leaving her in a box in a field... Damn you, Pixar!

    LOTR: The Two Towers — during the montage of Arwen’s life after Aragorn’s passing, with the music, etc.

    LOTR: Return of the King — same as stated above, from when Aragorn is crowned to the end credits.

    Apollo 13 — at the end, during Tom Hank’s monologue, about ‘when we’ll be going back to the Moon’. Call me a pessimist, but I just don’t see it happening in my lifetime...

    Cheers,

    Most recently, COCO left me a soggy mess.

    That's what you get for sitting next to the kid that gets so excited he flips his drink.

    Every time I watch Inside Out, I cry when Bing Bong jumps out of the wagon so that Joy can make the jump and return to Riley. His disappearing breaks my heart. Every. Single. Time. :wah:

    Shoot. I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about it. :(

    There seems to be a trend with Pixar movies and i understand and share the sentiment. I was choked up quite a few times when watching their movies, they do have the blend down between poignant story, humor and heartfelt moments.

    The 1969 British film KES. I'm not saying why because I don't want to give spoilers. It's a great film especially the wonderful Brian Glover.

    Northern kitchen sink and working class drama has a way of engrossing me to the point where something minor can be very emotional both happy and sad. It's not far from the Dickensian life of struggle and hardship with a bleak future but humour is never far away.

    The pub scene in Educating Rita always gets to me.
