The most tear jerky scene ever

This weeks assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is Who cried when Old Yeller got shot? What movie, TV show, book, etc. turns you into a blubbering baby every time you see it?

To tell you the truth I'm not a big crier.  I can watch Old Yeller get shot over and over and not shed one tear.  Sure I'll get sad but absolutely no waterworks.  I can watch Gilbert Grapes mother get cremated by her burning house with eyes dryer than snuggles the bear himself. but there is one scene that gets me every single time.  The scene I am speaking of is from the greatest jousting movie of all time, A Knights Tale.  During the end of the Film when William Thatcher (Heath Ledger) travels to England, to compete in a jousting tournament against his arch rival Count Adhemar, he finds his way back to where he grew up.  There he tracks down his father who is now a blind.

That reunion is the happiest/saddest scene ever, and I tear up every single damn time I watch it.     
Maybe since I was raised by a single father this scene gets to me so much.  Just makes me realize how much I love my dad and what a good relationship we have.

Here it is the most tear jerky scene ever!  Make sure to have some tissues handy.

About time book review

Night Of The CrabsNight Of The Crabs by Guy N. Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The title says it all, this book is about killer crabs, and no not that kind of crabs. Unlike other killer crab books these crabs are the size of cows. Night of the Crabs starts out just like the more well known and loved Jaws. While night swimming a couple of oversexed young adults get torn to shreds by the villainous crustaceans. That's pretty much where the similarities stop. The crabs are not only large but they are extremely intelligent. I know, I know this seems like the coolest B-movie monster fest book ever, but alas it is not. Sure it had awesome claw killings and dismemberment but not enough for a book about giant killer crabs. The ending seemed rushed and was filled with deus ex machinas. I dunno, I guess my expectations were too high. I had hoped for an unrated crab gorefest but instead got a soft R.
