    Must admit even a heartless bastard like me was moved by the ending of TS3. Thought I was being a bit daft but shows you how well it is done. Can't really imagine shedding tears over a film though. Bunch of softees

    Another great movie is A Monster Calls.

    Seriously moving and beautifully realised.

    As ever Grant, each to his or her own. The Simpsons, for example, drives me up the wall!!

    I think much of one's appreciation of today's children's films, especially stuff such as Frozen, is if you've got kids or grandkids yourself, and so much of the fun derived from the experience comes from *them* having fun [their joy], and subsequently your interaction with them and participation in the whole experience

    Without that, you're not likely to 'get it' the same.

    I didn't cry but I did have a "lower lip wobble". The Toy Story series was excellent: I was especially moved by the comment from 'Stinky Pete' (in TS2) who raises the ultimate horror for a toy: that of spending eternity in a land fill. Made me feel guilty about all my childhood toys that must be sharing the same fate.

    Martin, I find, as I get older I can easily well up watching emotive scenes, be they happy or sad. For example it could be “It’s a Wonderful Life” (sloppily sentimental), or “Twelve Years a Slave” (shockingly historical brutal realism), or “Rabbit Proof Fence” (also shocking).
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    End of Ice age 1 is like that too. Its probably the best story although graphics were not as good.

    Graphics are no where near any of those films but The Iron Giant gets me going at the end.

    Watched that 'Twelve Years A Slave' the other night. Was not at any point close to 'welling up'.

    The only thing that does that to me, and I've no real idea why, is that scene in 'A Bridge Too Far' where the German envoy asks the surrounded paratroopers to surrender and the bloke deliberately misunderstands him and tells him they can't accept a German surrender because they haven't got the facilities to take them all prisoner. And that didn't even happen in reality.

    Oh and that bit in 'Zulu' where they sing 'Men Of Harlech'

    That never happened either.
