Can a guy movie make you cry?

I sent this list to a dj at a local rock station who is a big movie buff.

It started when my stepsons jazzed me for tearing up during Saving Private Ryan I said that there were some straight up guy movies, that you couldn't help but get a lump in your throat.

The dj agreed with my list, so I thought I'd put it up and see what you guys thought:

1. The Green Berets w/ John Wayne. I dare any hardass to sit through the last 20 minutes without tearing up.

2.Saving Private Ryan If you have anybody who went through D-Day, 'nuff said.

3.The Natural w/ Redford. The last 10 minutes...when the lights start exploding in the outfield and the music starts...if you love baseball, this ending will get you.

4.Pride of the Yankees Gary Cooper giving Gerhrig's farewell speech(today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth) is a tearjerker.

5.Sands of Iwo Jima w/ John Wayne. When the flag goes up, the tired Marines are looking up the hill, and the Hymn starts...gets me everytime.

6.LOTR:The Return of the King When the king tells Frodo,'my friend, you bow to no one' and bows himself, powerful scene.

That's just a few...would like to know if anybody else has a comment or an addition to the list.

I"m not sure if it's considered a "guy movie" but Armageddon with Bruce Willis is definitely a tear jerker when he and his team go off at the end to save the world from the asteroid. When he's leaving his daughter in Affleck's hands (which is scary enough as it is) I was blubbering.

Harry Stamper: Grace, I know I promised you I was coming home.
Grace Stamper: I don't understand.
Harry Stamper: [sighs] Looks like I'm going to have to break that promise.
