Saddest movie of all time?

Let it be known I tear up extremely easily in movies, so I tend to avoid 'tear-jerkers'. I hate crying in public, and when ever I see an upsetting movie it sticks with me for quite a while. For example, do you remember that Jet Dry commercial that came on in the late 90's? The one where the woman starts using the liquid dishwasher, and the powdered detergent is alone crying. I use to have to change the channel because that messed me up so bad, so let it be known that's where I stand. Here are a few movies that tear me up.

-Saving Private Ryan, I only watched till the scene where the young soldier is crying for his mother, with his intestines hanging out. Then I walked out of the theatre...blubbering so much, I had to wait 30 minutes before I could call someone to pick me up.
-Titanic. cheesy yes. But the first time I saw it I was gone.
-The Lion King-the whole Mufasa in the sky part.
-Grave of Firefly, this movie is heart wrenching, it made me feel sick for a few days.
-Schindlers List. I had been avoiding watching this movie for some time, but we watched it in my world history class and I had to leave to throw up, I watched the whole thing a few years later by myself in my dorm room, I honestly don't know how.
-Up! Why why why would they do this in a kids movie? I did the whole embarrassing hiccup breathing thing.
- Kung Fu Panda 2 The part with the mother panda, I was ok, but then this tiny kid in the theatre yelled "Where he mama go?" Gone.
-The Champ- The ending, that kid can act.
-The Green Mile. Didn't watch it to the end. Too much.
-Dancer in the Dark- most depressing movie ever.

I know there are a lot of 'tear jerker' movies I left off the list, but that's because I probably haven't seen them.
