          That "One in a million" scene in Dumb & Dumber. It brings on the waterworks for me every single time.

                I remember Joe Montana talking on The Dan Patrick Show about how that movie was pure fiction.

                    Someone was crying over this scene. Hey, boots. Is it true this is the initiation every Raider fan has to go through? Asking for a friend.

                      Looks more like A&M to me

                        It didn't make me tear up exactly but that whole 10 minute (or so) scene where that musical theme "Promentory" is playing, of which only 2.5 minutes are depicted here in this clip, is absolutely one of the best movie scenes I've ever seen in my life. Culminating with Wes Studi's character getting killed. Simply epic.

                        It's too bad the rest of the movie is largely a snore. But that one scene is so, so, so good. And the thing is - it has DDL in it, and it's funny that he really isn't what makes it so powerful, being arguably the greatest actor alive. Michael Mann is just a master. I'm thinking of the closing scene of Heat, among the many examples.

                          Prolly watched from beginning to end 40 times.

                          The cinematography is unreal.

                            I was never requested to fuck a Kansas City Chief fan in the ass to support my team, but if you and Ned Beatty say it happened to you, i guess it must be a thing somewhere.

                            Sorry i couldn't been more of a help for you fining closure. Maybe DM Marcellus Wallace for tips.

                                Michael Mann is a master like you said. No other filmmaker can combine unique music with imagery like he can. The ending scene in Thief (1981) is one of my favorites:

                                  Another great one is from Heat where DeNiro recruits Dennis Haysbert for the bank robbery. The way the music cues up as Dennis comes to grips with what he's about to do is just masterful. It can't be found on any soundtrack either as far as I know.

                                    He definitely knows how to use music. I had the Heat soundtrack on cassette back in 95 or 96.

                                    The Insider has some great cinematic stuff in it too. Particularly the scenes with the Lisa Gerrard music.

                                    Also, Manhunter with the creepy Inna Gadda Davida scene.

                                    Also, so much great use of music throughout Miami Vice.

                                              The Magnificent Seven when Yul Brynner finds the knife thrown by James Coburn as he went down.

                                              Not a movie but an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise titled "Carbon Creek". Archer and Trip throw a celebratory dinner for T'Pol who has lasted as a crew member on a human-crewed ship longer than any other Vulcan, and they cajole her into telling them a story. She proceeds to rewrite Earth history when she relates the events of the first contact between three marooned Vulcans and Humans in the year 1957, which is much different than what human history books record as the Vulcans went undetected as aliens during their first visit. After T'Pol tells the story, Archer and Trip don't believe her but later alone in her cabin, she pulls out a personal artifact, the purse carried by her grandmother, who was one of the marooned Vulcans, she used while on Earth.

                                              The ending of "Fury".

                                              Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shook me when every one of the rebels died to get the Death Star plans off the planet. I never expected that ending.

                                                  Rogue One is the best of the new Star Wars and had a pretty ballsy ending: just fuckin' kill everybody lol.

The original ending music was a piece written by Elliott Goldenthal that was later re-worked and included in the score for Michael Collins. The piece can be found on YouTube.

The plot is that he is documenting his thoughts on life for his child after he is gone. His health gets so bad that his Father has to come shave him. His Father is your stereotypical man's man and is doing this loving act for his dying son. I pretty much broke down.
