Movies rarely move me in the excited sense, it takes a pretty good movie to move me at all, but some movies have been known to give me an emotional kick in the teeth, like Nell, Contact and Little Buddha to name but a few.
Some Martial arts movies I have watched can have the undesirable effect of making my leg twitch in the fight scenes, but that's a bit like playing a game and ducking and diving the head in response to the gameplay. :D
I hate those leg twitches, and some movies have a nasty effect on my bladder, which annoys quite a few people. The only movie that really made me think was 2001: A Space Oddesey, that got me going on the meaning of life at age 8 or something...

In Moulin Rouge, though I be moved most of the movie, I am especially moved when Satine and Chris come down off the elephant, singing the whole way, then they break into "I Will Always Love You" as the camera angle spins around them and the little lites around the opening in the elephant kinda "blast-off" to some vanishing point in the background.
Well, that's my two cents worth. :)

Moulin Rouge is my all time favorite move. Everything about that movie is so brilliant. Not just the sad ending, but the romantic scenes as well, like the Elephant Love Medley, move me to tears. :D

Movies and films force the audience to see the story through the eyes of the director, as opposed to theater, which lets the audience see the story in their own way.

Forest Gump was a mopvie that wanted me to go out with the main character in the film.
Titanic made me sad for about a week after.
Apocalpyse Now made me think why are these dudes going surfing in the middle of a war.
And I had something really smart to say but someone erased my memory which happens alot these days

A lot of mainstream movies just make me angry now with all of their product placements and tie-ins, and some are just all-out MTV propaganda machines.

The music of a film is very important for me! It really adds to the atmosphere if it is well-made. As with videogames, sound plays a vital part. That's what gets me moved.
And yes, I usually think a lot about the movies I've seen. They sometimes make me understand some things about my own life.
