    Schindler's List

    It is the only movie that had me weeping like a baby by the end. The last scene really opened up the waterworks.
    Wow, yeah... forgot that one.

    But the best of his music, in the past few decades, anyway, is Quigley Down Under. And yes, I cry at the end.
    Quigley Down Under was a fun film.

    Maaaan. I had to watch that dumb movie in grade school, and balled like a baby. Why would you show a movie like that to children?

    So, yeah, anyways, we showed it to my young nieces. They liked it, but not a tear shed. Cold-hearted kids.

Conan says a grand total of 4 words to his love interest throughout the entire movie; all within the first minute of meeting her ("You're no guard!" "No"), but the music beautifully composed by the late Basil Poledouris articulates the grief and vengeance over love lost by using musical themes used throughout the movie.


    I'd post the scene that happens right after this, but I don't want to break forum rules.

    I don't think its remarkable as a film that chokes me up, but Conan the Barbarian is one of my favorite films of all time. For so few words, the film is loaded with some heavy philosophy (lots of Nietzscheism), and in my opinion, is a bit of a biting critique on the then rising New Age movement. And yeah, who can forget that score. Absolutely wonderful.

    And then they messed it all up by giving it a couple lousy sequels (one official, one not), and a terrible reboot. I know they've been talking about a Conan the King. I pray they get Milius' creative input into it somehow.

    Very excellent submissions. But the correct answer is "Grave of the Fireflies."

    Although "Brian's Song" is also an acceptable response.
