Drama - Sophie's Choice
Anamation - Toy Story
Tear jerker - Sophie's choice
Moral - Zoolander - the moral is that you can die fooling around at the gas pump. It's a crazy, wacky movie that appeals to my sense of humor and is one of my favorites.
About Sophie's Choice...it's the best and worst movie I've ever seen. Meryl Streep is beyond fabulous with her acting in it.
It effected me more than any movie ever. Sometimes I wish I could "unsee" it. It's a testament to man's cruelty to man, choices that last forever, courage, strength, morality and despair. I guess I'm glad I saw it but I would never watch it again, it shook me up that much.

Drama: Sugar Hill. A great little story about surviving in NYC, with Wesley Snipes.
Animation: Bambi. A timeless classic, great for kids.
Sappy: Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day. Not a tear-jerker; sappy all the way. A witty, well-written story from a book out of the 1930's. With Francis McDormand, Ciaran Hinds, Amy Adams.
Tear-jerker: Brian's Song (1971). A "sports" film, yes, but it's about dying young and the impact it has on relationships. With James Caan, Billy Dee Williams.
Morality Tale: Dr. Strangelove. About the perils and insanity of MAD/nuke warfare, and wickedly funny. With Peter Sellers, George C. Scott.
Comedy: State & Main. About the lunacy of getting a film made. A David Mamet "play," well-written. Great ensemble cast.

1. Drama. Star Wars (IV-VI) Some might not think of this as drama, but it truly is an epic space drama. Love, hate, battle for good and evil. Could also be morality tale
2. Animation/cartoon. The Emporer's New Groove (Kronk is hillarious)
3. "Sappy" tear-jerker type story. I don't cry
4. Cautionary/Morality tale. Lord of the Rings (trilogy) Most people may not see it for the deeper meaning, but it is packed full of morality and cultural/spiritual lessons if you look into the book and history of Tolkien and Middle Earth.
To add a second, Gattaca is a great story about prejudice and the moral ambiguity of technology and genetic engineering, not to mention the triumph of the human spirit.
