Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Tortoro)

This movie is so charming yet so enigmatic. It was set in rural japan, and was a story about two little girls with a sick mother. There were a couple of times where I almost got misty eyed, but held it together. At the end, though, there was nothing I could do. It was so sweet and moving I couldn't help myself. 2 hankies

Appurushîdo (Appleseed 2004)

Toward the end of the movie, just before the final fight, Doonan makes a little speech before jumping out of the building essentially saying that it doesn't matter that the computer projections see a dire future for humanity: the future is what we make it, so we have to fight to make it better. Then she jumped from the building into a falling power suit, and proceeded to engage in one visually amazing battle. Corny in spots, but absolutely visually beautiful movie. 2 hankies
