Just wondering which moment during LotR you all found yourselves crying   

I actually never cried during the movies.  But I don't get emotional very easily- the only movie that has really made me cry is Titanic.  Anyway... if I had to choose, I would say that the Grey Havens are the most tear-jerking.

When Sam is holding Frodo on Mount Doom, this was the moment when I cried so much, but to be honest I cried almost in every scene at the end of part tree.

I voted for the Grea Havens.
That was one of the reasons I couldn't watch ROTK at the cinema. I knew the ending and I was not strong enough to watch it at the cinema.

the Grey Havens. 

when Frodo says good-bye to Sam.  and they will never ever see each other again, ever!  and Sam has to go back to his little hobbit life in that little hobbit hole trying to discipline all those kids and taking care of that wife for the rest of his long long life.  and every day, he thinks about Frodo and wishes Frodo would still be there.  and this goes on and on and on.  then his kids leave home because they are marrying hobbits from the neighboring hobbit town.  and Rosie ends up having an affair with Mr. Proudfood and runs off with him, leaving poor (and old at this point) Sam all to himself with nothing to do but think about Frodo.  Sam eventually comes to a tragic end because he goes back to the Grey Haven one evening and longingly stares out at the horizon wishing Frodo would come back to him.  sadly, he trips over his walking cane and falls into the water and drowns.  his body ends up washing onto a riverbank of the Anduin.  just tragic!

My FIRST time I cried and was so emotional was when Aragorn told Frodo they had to move on from Moria after Gandalfs fall and he looked right into you the viewer with such horror and loss.......
But to me ..... Frodo leaving for the Grey Havens brought back so many memories. .....
Did you know that Peter Jackson lost both his parents while directing LOTR and they never got to see his final production of ROTK?
And I feel so strongly that it is very heavenly his portrayal of the Grey Havens and this is a bit of a tribute to his parents leaving.
Because ...... when both my parents died ... the sea took them too .

Me too. This is the most sad part of the Trilogy and the most sad movie that I ever seen.

I can't vote because all the moments made me cry. Especially when Gandalf falls in Moria, Grey Havens, death of Boromir.

I cried a looooot on LOTR. I guess the music in these sad scenes makes ihem so emotional. I cry everytime when I see the scene with Gandalf in Moria, and when he returns and meet Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli in Fangorn. Everytime when I see the eagles rescuing Frodo and Sam from the Mount Doom in LOTR (my God, such a beautiful scene...). Everytime when I see Arwen in ROTK, when she has a vision of her son and returns to Rivendell. And when Pippin sings for Denethor while warriors of Gondor die... there's so many moments like that...

I cried at the lighting of the beacons,  got choked up when Sam gives Frodo his hand to lift him up to begin the final leg of their journey but I became openly tearful when they begin their climb up Mt. Doom and couldn't stop until the movie was over. 

I saw the movie in theaters three times and did the same thing each time.  My friends were sick of me!

i dont cry during movies....ever, so crying during LotR is a big deal for me.

my eyes were dangerously misty when Gandalf died because of the look Frodo has when that tear runs down is cheek. aww!

i cried when Aragorn says "you bow to no one" because of the combination of all the hobbits faces (especially Frodo's look of appreciative wonder) and the moving music

i completely bawled during the Grey Havens scene...i'm sure you can figure out why there.

and for a completely random moment, i felt that heart-wrenching feeling in my chest when Pippin sang.  all the silent images of the war outside KILLS me. ahh, such great movie making!

so i voted the last option.
