    At the end of "We Were Soldiers", when Mel Gibson says "I'll never forgive myself...That my troopers died, and I didn't".

    The end of Apocalyptica. The man Is running for his life from either Mayans or the Aztecs and he ends up at cliff and he sees the Spanish conquistadors and the movie just ends.

    Agreed, when he's at the cemetary with his family asking if he was a good man.

    Young man that played football with my son and went to church with us named Chance, joined the Marines right before this came out. Tough movie to watch with that in our minds.

    On June 29, 1936, Tom Smith stood by the track rail at Massachusetts' Suffolk Downs, weighing the angles and gestures of low-level horses as they streamed to the post. Midway through the post parade, a weedy three year-old bay halted before the trainer and looked at him with a regal expression completely unsuited to such a rough-hewn animal. The two looked at each other for only a moment before the pony boy tugged the colt on his way.

    Smith flipped to the horse's profile in the track program. The colt was descended from the mighty Man o' War through his sire, Hard Tack, a majestic animal who had squandered his talent in racetrack rages. But this creature's stunted build did nothing to recall the beauty and breadth of his forebears. His body was a study in unsound construction. His short legs, sporting asymmetrical knees that didn't quite straighten all the way, gave him a crouching stance and an odd, inefficient "eggbeater" gait that one writer likened to a duck waddle. His career had been noteworthy only in its appalling rigor. He had raced a staggering 35 times as a two year-old, at least three times the typical workload. He had found no takers in claiming races, running for yard sale pricetags. His owner even tried to hawk him to her brother as a polo pony, but the man took one look at those legs and passed. So the colt labored on, and by the time Smith saw him, his punishing schedule had left him with permanent foreleg ailments and a manner that one jockey described as "mean, restive and ragged."

    But somehow, that afternoon, the colt won his race. While being unsaddled, he again focused his gaze on Smith. A man for whom words were encumbrances, Smith didn't take note of the name, but he learned the horse nevertheless. He was a colt whose quality, an admirer would write, "was mostly in his heart, and Tom Smith had been the first to recognize it." Smith spoke to the colt as he was led away: "I'll see you again."

    In a private box above Saratoga Racecourse one month later, Charles and Marcela Howard surveyed a field of generic claimers. Charles pointed to an especially wretched colt named Seabiscuit and asked his wife what she thought of him. She offered a wager of a cool drink that the horse would lose, watched as the colt led from wire to wire, and bought her husband a lemonade. Sitting together in the clubhouse that afternoon, husband and wife felt a pull of intuition. Howard shared it with Smith, who walked to the stables to see the horse and found himself face to face with the colt he had seen at Suffolk Downs. Howard wrote a check for $7,500 and bought the colt.

    How about when the Chief puts the pillow over McMurphy than escapes thru the window he smashes out?

    Secretariat - even though we all know the outcome, it still gives me goosebumps.
