Horner's last "big" cue: Return to the Wild. Geesh, I can cry from just thinking about it. Just, you know everything it represents, in film and out. And dogs tie in. It's the rainbow bridge cue. Friendship. Love and letting go. Freedom and endings.

Otherwise, orchestral grandeur, especially the Wagnerian variety. Fairly rare, but when it gets me it's just an uncontrolled response to the music. Best example is perhaps JNH's Maleficent Suite (pointedly, the 4th and 5th minute), which can set me off for the full listen of the score. It's a rare thing in a film score, and it's no wonder Maleficent is one of my GOATs.
