50. Arab Guy (aka Guns rule and Sword drool)- Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - 21 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #8 Cole Stratton)

http://www.youtube.com/v/GkLXdLgOybE?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Director: Senior Speilbergo
Starring: The dude from Firewall back when he was kickass! Also that one chick and that one dude
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: Minimal
Wow/Kickass Factor: HELL YEA!

Synopsis:

Ahhh, Indiana Jones. The man that made archeology and being smart sexy. And how smart is he? Well, smart enough to realize that you never bring a knife to a gun fight when rescuing poontang and saving the world from nazzis is on the line.

One caveat to this though: By shooting the enemy and saving Marion, this might have single handedly caused Shia Le-Marlon Brando wannabe. Just a thought.

49. Kevin Bacon (I am sure he has a name, but like anyone other than Horrific knows it) – Friday the 13th (1980) - 22 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #9 Shodan)/i]

http://www.youtube.com/v/eIjvKgSpLDs?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Director: Sean S (Richie) Cunningham
Starring: Kevin Bacon….and some other people
Gore Factor: Low to Mid
Sad Factor: Minimal (except the loss of that joint…although the killer probably smoked it)
Wow/Kickass Factor: High
 

Synopsis:

“I have had it with those mutherfucking kids at that muther fucking Camp Crystal Lake!” That is what the killer (whom I shall not name for spoiler reasons) thought one morning when he or she woke up and decided to kill the whole lot of them. This was very good for a number of reasons:
   1) College kids are stupid
   2) People like seeing something new in the movies
   3) People like to see the same thing they thought was new done to death for the next 20+ years

This was especially good for Kevin Bacon because now we can include all incarnations of the Friday the 13th franchise into 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.

50. Arab Guy (aka Guns rule and Sword drool)- Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - 21 points

48. Baptism Murders – The Godfather (1972) - 29 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #11 A Pretty Girl is Like)

http://www.youtube.com/v/SOES-dS0pG0?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Director: Nic Cage’s Uncle
Starring: Al Pacino, James Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, and Marlon Brando (the real one)
Gore Factor: Low to Mid
Sad Factor: Minimal (what? The baby didn’t die)
Wow/Kickass Factor: High! Instead of baptizing himself to the lord and the way of truth, Michael is metaphorically selling his soul to Satan as he becomes baptized in the ways of the mafia. Good stuff

Synopsis:

Ahhhh the Godfather. Aka the fall and rise (or rise and fall) of Michael Corleone and the beginning of Al Pacino never winning the fucking Oscar (seriously he was the Susan Lucci of the Oscars at one point). Greatly considered to be a model of cinematic integrity, one can’t help but notice that a lot of people die in these films. Although, to nerd out on this, I think using the murders as metaphors for the life of a Ganster (and later, Gansta) is really cool. Also, check out the pacing in this scene. Nic Cage’s uncle knows how to direct….maybe he can teach his nephew how to act?

I wrote a friend of mine a term paper while I was visiting him at MSU over the summer comparing the character of Michael Corleone and Roy Dillion from The Grifters and how they are mirror images of each other vis-a-vis actions to personal consequences.

3 beats in and we've already taken care of two of the more famous death scenes (well, I dunno how famous the Indy scene is in the context of being a Death Scene). Interesting. Hope that means there's some really varied, odd choices coming up.

Yeah, that confused me a bit as well.  Does this mean you skipped over all the number 1 and 2 picks that would have had at least 25 or 24 points?  Seeing as you skipped from 22 points straight to 29 points.  Or was there a typo?   ???  I have no problem with it if that is how you decided to proceed, just would like some clarification.  :)

Oh and I had Kevin Bacon's gruesome demise in Friday The 13th on my list at 25.  :highfive:

47 Obi-Wan Kenobi – Star Wars (1977) - 29 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #5 Monty)

http://www.youtube.com/v/rjCyZ2P9bCA?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Director: Some Hack
Starring: Alec Guiness, Mark Hamil, and some roadie for the Doors
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: Mid to High
Wow/Kickass Factor: At the time, mid to low; however, in the context of the films, the death and return of Obi-Wan proved to be the father figure for Luke Skywalker both spiritually and mentally. This ideas was re-used with the death of Qui-Gon in the prequels. It should have been used on the death of Jar Jar.

Synopsis:

Star Wars. A film so beloved amongst nerds that we seriously will KILL over it (I think if Obama just flat out said the terrorists think the prequels are better the war would be over rather quickly). But there is a reason we love it so much: scenes like this. Luke Skywalker, the young hero who wants nothing more than to head to tashie station to pick up some power converters (that is sooooooo dirty) ends up the defender of the galaxy. And yea, deep down inside he knows he is awesome, but he needs the guidance to get him there. This death sets many scenes in motion and that is why it is better than the entirety of Star Trek 2009 (WHAT! I KILL YOU, SCUM!)

46 Muldoon – Jurassic Park (1993) - 30 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #13 Space)

http://www.youtube.com/v/jaFT6RVz5w4?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Director: Senior Speilbergo’s union American counterpart
Starring:   A bunch of Dinos and Sam Jackson before he could kick ass
Gore Factor: Minimal (alas because it is mostly offscreen)
Sad Factor: Minimal
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Not only does the Dino win the day, the line preceding Muldoon’s death basically said “Ha, you are worthy advisory. I shall now die as I deserve to.” Brits are so polite, even about death

Synopsis:

Like we needed to add another kickass death to Jurassic Park…actually we did. This one really shows off Spielberg’s amazing ability to film people looking at stuff and it created some damn good tension. Also, this actor has nice legs. There, I said it.

OK cool.  I am guessing my number one will be one of those bonus deaths that get featured.  Doubt anyone else would vote for it, but you never know on this board.  A lot of film buffs here that might think of that one.

And I am glad that Obi-Wan got another vote and made the cut.  A very historic and memorable movie death.

The interesting thing about Muldoon's death is that it's only a death because of the very real death of Bob Peck. The character survives in the book and in the official comic.

I'm pretty sure he was dead regardless of Peck's mortal status. I mean, there's lots of who lives/who dies discrepancies in the films, and Peck was still alive and acting after The Lost World came out. Besides, hard to bring someone back after a raptor bites their face off without making it seem extra silly.

Good.   At least I know my #1 pick will make the list.
I know mine did, seeing as how I brought it up (or rather STRONGLY hinted to it) in the other thread. Wouldn't be surprised if it makes the top 3 too.


Almost voted for Arab Guy. Cut it just because I'm not really a fan of the movie series. Still is pretty fun though.

Huh, go figure. I must admit, Jurassic Park III would've been that much more interesting with him around (and it's not like that movie could get any more ridiculous, so why not toss no-face in the mix).

I was the third person who voted for Kevin Bacon. And the only reason I've ever even seen this movie is because of Horr-RIFF-ic Productions (great riff BTW). I have to admit though, that was actually a pretty impressive special effects and/or make up trick, for the time. I'm not sure how they did that to be honest. And no, I have absolutely no idea what the character's name is either.

I hope somebody else voted for my number one. It's a little bit of an odd choice, but it's nothing obscure.

I must protest! There is no proof that Arab Guy actually died from the gunshot. He may have very well been taken to a local doctor, treated and then went on to found an orphanage and lived a happy and fruitful life after Indy shot him.

I seriously considered this one. I'm glad it made it without my vote.

And yeah, I don't remember the fate of Muldoon in the book, but I do remember that Malcolm and Hammond both die, while Gennaro survives. Way to just reverse the fates of half the characters...

Oh, and then Malcolm is miraculously not dead in the sequel  ::)

OK in the book, he manages to squeeze into some pipes and they act as a shield against the attack from the raptors. Eventually he kills some and gets the hell out of Dodge. Despite changing the setting of the attack somewhat, Steve and Company were planning on having him come back all scarred up as a big shock in the sequel - "Surprise! Though I was dead didn't you?" Except the old bony one had different plans for Bob.

Oh and hell, one of my favourite variations on a meme:

yeah but his death was really important, besides what it says in the description, as it showed his faith in the force and thereby catalyzed Luke's own belief in the force and greatly impacted him and led to him ultimately becoming a Jedi. It also embodies the final tenets of the Jedi code "There is no death, there is the Force.".... damn i gotta stop doing this.

I'm just curious why his dissapearance happened IMMEDIATELY when the lightsaber went through him. That didn't happen for any of the other Jedi died. Even Yoda took a little bit to dissapear. And why did Vader act confused when ObiWan dissapeared? Still, a good death, though.

That quick disappearance is probably what confused him. Such an unusual thing to happen, even with regards to the Force.

Post by: shodan on October 19, 2011, 10:20:50 AM
within the star wars universe I think it has to do with the immediacy of the death. and vader acted confused because becoming one with the force upon death and surviving as a force ghost was a lost art until Qui-Gon rediscovered it, and Ben and Yoda refined it under the tutelage of qui-gon's ghost to the point that their bodies became one with the force upon death as well. it being a secret technique, Vader was never taught it nor was he even aware of it. he only became a force Ghost due to his last minute redemption and as he transitioned from life to death, yoda and ben helped him to become one with the force.

45 The Entire Cast of Black Adder – Black Adder goes Forth (1982) - 30 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Tripe Hound Redux)

http://www.youtube.com/v/IglUmgYGxLM

Director: British people
Starring: Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: High. The characters even talk about how much they do not want to die before they head out to meet their final doom.
Wow/Kickass Factor: High.

Synopsis: (As provided by Tripe Hound Redux)

So the Grim Reaper is always the unseen character at the end of a series of Blackadder but never was he more apparent than in the fourth and final regular outing of the show. Despite all Balckadder’s various attempts, Darling’s sycophancy and many a cunning plan from Baldric nothing can save them from participating in the Big Push that has been looming over them since the first episode.
Many have found this to be incredibly poignant and it’s certainly played differently than the previous Deaths. The setting of course only adds to this; few situations embody the horrors of war quite like the Trenches of WWI.

Tim McInnerny’s mini speech about how he’d hope to survive is, for me, superb in what a waste the whole thing was, though everyone else does sterling work in that scene. The brief moment of hope from the characters right before the end just underlines the sadness of their inevitable deaths.

Kevin Darling puts it best, in his final diary entry – “bugger”.

(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #6 Doctor Who?)

Starring: The same people as entry 48 and this guy

John Cazale is sad about being left out.  
Gore Factor: Mid (not super amounts of blood, but LOTS of bullets…and a kick in the head for good measure)
Sad Factor: Personally, I found it sad because Sonny was heading home to beat the shit out of Talia Shire’s jerk husband, but I am sure many people found it mid to high.
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Highly unexpected with a shit ton of bullets, Sonny Corleone has a death that will be remembered far far longer than James Caan’s appearance in Honeymoon in Vegas

Synopsis:

Sonny Corleone: Dude. Wait, that isn’t right. Sonny Corleone is kind of the hot head brother of the Mafia family dissected in Francis Ford Coppola’s Award winning film, but let’s face it. After Michael (Al Pacino) decides to stay and run the family business, was there really any room for poor little Sonny. No. Luckily, a buttload of thugs just happened to want to kill Sonny. Well, they wanted to go beyond killing Sonny and created a post modern artistic representation of swiss cheese.

43 A Bunch of Passengers  – Ghost Ship (2003) - 36 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #5 Shodan)

http://www.youtube.com/v/zbSjSIY0Zkk?version=3&hl=en_US

Director: Steve Beck
Starring: That chick from ER, that dude from In Treatment
Gore Factor: Super High
Sad Factor: Um….well they were nameless people so it doesn’t do much to make me sad….but to each their own
Wow/Kickass Factor: A friend of mind HATES this scene because it is so fucked up. As far as mass killings in film, this is def high up there, but I felt rather meh about the whole thing (I also laughed…does that make me a bad person?)
 

Synopsis:

Bunch of people are dancing where they should not be (seriously, how many safety regulations does this scene violate. Maybe if they weren’t surrounded by buttloads of cable, they wouldn’t have met their demise). This results in soul collectors and ghost ships and really really bad acting. Considering the fact that the director’s put the only interesting scene in the beginning of the movie, he clearly didn’t have too much faith in his own storytelling.

42 Johnny  – The Room (2003) - 36 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #10 Anais.whatever)

http://www.youtube.com/v/Ch1ti1VMzXU?version=3&hl=en_US

Director: No one. No one directed this. It was merely filmed one day
Starring: Lisa as Lisa, Mark as Mark, and Denny as….some sort of weird retard pig boy thing?
Gore Factor: Minimal (and not good enough)
Sad Happy Factor: Super fucking High
Wow/Kickass Factor: The WOW factor of this death is that in a film so ridiculous to this point that Johnny doesn’t end up getting up and saying “Oh Hi, Lisa, I was just kidding about being dead. I love you so much and you are so beautiful, huh”

Still, say what you will about me, I laugh at his death everytime! Oh, Hi gun barrel!

Synopsis:

Johnny should have offed himself within the first five minutes of the film and saved us all the trouble

41 Billy and Captain America Wyatt  – Easy Rider (1969) - 36 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #6 D.B. Barnes)

http://www.youtube.com/v/hjYAEtO-Ohk?version=3&hl=en_US

Director: Dennis Hopper
Starring: Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson, and Peter Fonda (<-- EYE CANDY!)
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: High. Maybe it is because I am a hippie at heart, but this act of road rage and bigotry made me very very unhappy.
Wow/Kickass Factor: The deaths were extremely shocking. In terms of shit Southerners can do to people without provocation, this death scene is up there with another not so nice scene in Deliverance.
 

Synopsis:

Easy Rider is an American road movie with the same themes of loss, disillusionment, and rebellion as one of my all time favorite books “An American Dream.” Billy and Wyatt earn some money selling cocaine they smuggled over the border (see it’s been happening for ages people) only to spend that money on the ultimate Road Trip. Embracing the free spirit of Jack Kerouac and others, Billy and Wyatt learn that America does not really glitter as so many people will lead you to believe. Then they get shot by rednecks.

For some reason, I imagine the film should cut to a perfectly fine Sonny with maybe a couple of small bandages telling Michael "Well, that was a close call.  I thought they almost had me there."  Then more thugs with machine guns come out.  "Not again!"

A great bit of slicing gore, but it always bugged me how inconsistent the wire was. I mean, it's being snapped straight across very suddenly, and yet it gets some people at the belt line and others up at the nipples. And then there's the captain, who it manages to get right up at the mouth (while courteously dodging the child). Just all over the place, like it was some kind of live wire that could control its dicing action.

Post by: shodan on October 19, 2011, 12:31:18 PM
the reason why it cut the captain in the head is because he saw it coming and at the last second bent over to protect the child. also if you notice, it starts off at a high point, becomes lower at the dance floor and then rises again to the other side. that would account to the variances.

I found it all absurdly hilarious myself. Maybe because there was so much hype surrounding it. Shodan, how was the rest of the film. You had another death from the film on there, are you a fan of the film as a whole?

yea i liked the film, good story, with a mix of murder mystery and supernatural, plus some really cool deaths and gore.
this is my favorite scene because it has all the deaths tied together, within it is the other death i put in my list, and the sense of betrayal and come-uppance is pretty cool. plus i think the singer is kind of hot. also i especially think the ghost-girl's reaction are an interesting point.

For me, it's not so much a sad factor as it is a rage factor. The first time I saw this, my rage was palpable. I actually have trouble watching this scene, it makes me feel angry and a bit helpless.

43 A Bunch of Passengers  – Ghost Ship (2003) - 36 points

Had it at #25. This is just the kind of awesome gore that I enjoy so much.

I've never though about that. It seems like I never notice stuff like that unless it's so obviously impossible that you can't help but notice. I'm actually glad I don't notice those things; there's less distraction.

The high-to-low could account for some, but the captains till bugs me. I watched it again, it doesn't look like he ducks down or anything, just stands there while the wire goes from someone's waist to his mouth and back down again.

Of course, I also realize now I'm nitpicking this way too much. My gorehound sensibilities get antsy sometimes :P

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBQHzMP-0Rg&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL7570E5DA5CB45543

Looks like I cannot embed. Death begins at 3:30

I believe the embedding has been disabled. Death starts at 3:30

 Director: Joe Dante
Starring: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Gizmo
Gore Factor: High (not in blood, just in ooze)
Sad Factor: Low to Mid: Gizmo and Billy save the day and Stripe becomes an oowey gooey mess. Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeet the sun shine in.
Wow/Kickass Factor: Super High. The movie itself was awesomeness incarnate and this was the icing on the cake of a film about cute and cuddly creatures that turn DEADLY.
 

Synopsis:

Let’s face it. I’m cute. And let’s also face it, as a woman, I can turn into a mean ass bitch. The story of Stripe is very similar. Stripe was born through the accidental reproduction of one Gizmo P Cuteypants. Stripe was a born Oediupus, though….slowly learning to loathe the father figure that is Gizmo. In an act of defiance, Stripe eats fried chicken after midnight (wouldn’t you?) and turns into the inner representations of all our demons! After wreaking havoc on all, he is finally outwitted by the most diabolical thing imaginable….the sun. Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet the sun shine in!

(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #6 Monty)

http://www.youtube.com/v/UBoTEZxWkec?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Trey Parker
Starring: Trey Parker and Matt Stone
Gore Factor:
   Preferred Deaths –
The go-kart/train death in Season 1 Ep. 13 - "Cartman's mom is a dirty slut”
Impaled on a Flag Pole – Season 1 Ep. 2 – “Weight Gain 4000”
Killed by lighting his farts on fire – South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
   
Sad Factor: Low….hilarity factor; however, is super high
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. I remember when this show first came out how the many many deaths of Kenny were the talk of the town when I was a youngin.
 

Synopsis:

Poor Kenny. Dirt poor with alcoholic parents, Kenny is the scapegoat of the South Park “gang,” but really he is the heart and soul of this four little boys….and innocence…the innocence that gets dragged to death via go-kart, gets impaled on a flag pole, and gets cremated and ingested by Cartman (because ashes totally look like chocolate milk powder). Throughout it all. Kenny’s death have become one of the many iconic idiosyncracies of South Park.

http://www.youtube.com/v/9M8YWC3fYk8?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Japanese Dudes
Starring: Voice Over Actors
Gore Factor: Low
Sad Factor: High
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Was it a Romeo and Juliet “I can’t live without my love death?” Was it a suicide because he didn’t want to live anymore? Did Spike fake his own death so he could finally live his own life without living in fear?
 

Synopsis:

Spike fell in love with a woman he should not have. Then he was told she was dead, so he began his life on the run. He learns his love is alive only to have her die in his arms later. In an act of defiance he goes apeshit crazy and gets shot. The perfect example of a man over the edge, Spike’s death is a tragic and beautiful scene filled with love and longing.

Thank you, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I missed it in the theater, but when it came out on VHS, there was actually a waiting list to rent it. I eventually got a copy of the movie everyone was raving about, watched about 20-30 minutes of it, and returned it.

10 or so years later I re-rented it and watched the whole thing. Yep, still crap, but at least I can say that I've seen it, and get references to it.

Enough talk, on with the death!

Jeez, some of us have places to be


Television counts as a place, right?
Only in America.

I was just hoping to see some more entries before I had to sleep. Oh well, it'll be something to wake up to then.

When are you going bed, I am about to post. Well in about 10 min

38. Dude Get his Heart Ripped Out (aka The Final Sacrifice) - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1984) - 38 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #4 Doctor Who?)

http://www.youtube.com/v/KBIdcUxdgo0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: I have run out of funny names for him already
Starring: Some pot smoking hippie and Short Round
Gore Factor: Mid – I would say high, but there wasn’t enough blood squirting out of the still beating heart
Sad Factor: Minimal (who was that dude and why should I care about him…The death of Kate Capshaw’s character….still would not be sad)
Wow/Kickass Factor: He RIPS out a dude’s FUCKING HEART….yea, that was pretty kick ass

Synopsis:

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Up until 2008, this film was highly considered to be the worst Indiana Jones film, but what did this movie have? It had a dude’s heart getting ripped out while it was still beating.

How did this movie come to be? Perhaps this transcript will help.

Steven Spielberg: I want a movie where this hot actress I have a crush on can be the love interest and a dude gets his heart ripped out
Producer: Harrison Ford ran out of pot, he could use a new gig
Steven Spielberg: A sequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark it is!

37. Maggie – Million Dollar Baby (2004) - 39 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #6 A Pretty Girl is Like)

http://www.youtube.com/v/o4SUU7XoRl8?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Clint Eastwood (you wouldn’t think this, of all the death’s he has been a part of to make the list, but the world is full of surprises)
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood, and….ugh do I have to say it? Fine…Hilary Swank
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: High. I have never seen Million Dollar Baby, but my brother told me what happened. It was a sad and beautiful moment in a film I am quite positive I should watch but the fact that Annette Benning lost the Oscar to Hilary Swank for the SECOND time makes me really angry.
Wow/Kickass Factor: I am not sure how to rank this one. On the one hand this scene represents the kind of issues that even South Park won’t touch with a 20 foot pole and it was made in such a way that the audience is content and satisfied. On the other hand, Clint DIDN’T ripe her still beating heart out….ya know what I’m saying

Synopsis:

Maggie always wanted to be a boxer…..like Rocky, not like a dog or anything (although that would make for a great family comedy from Disney coming just in time for the Holidays). She trained and trained and trained and got to listen to Morgan Freeman’s awesome voice while she did. Then she got paralyzed in a SUPER fucked up way (it seems that your manage would be smart enough NOT to leave furniture lying around a boxing ring). Now paralyzed, her manager is faced with one of the hardest decision anyone will ever have to make.

And then he won lots of awards, so it turned out ok in the end

36 Bill – Kill Bill Vol 2 (2004) - 39 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #4 Shodan)

http://www.youtube.com/v/2kf0D_X7uFE?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Uma Thurman and David Carradine
Gore Factor: Minimal (as opposed to the other deaths)
Sad Factor: High….although that just might be me personally because HE WAS DEAD IN FUCKING SECONDS….maybe I should say “Anais’s annoyance factor”
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Although the death happens rather quickly (in my opinion) the build up to the death and the fact that Beatrice (aka The Bride) got to use something Bill could only dream of mastering was pretty satisfying

Synopsis:

*Note: Read the following scene like when Mike and the Bots did their intro to “Where of Werewolf” (in other words like they are about to burst into a 50s girl group song)

Quentin: Hey Uma, what’s the matter?
Uma: Oh nothing, I guess
Quentin: Come on Uma, you can tell me
Uma: Well girls, ok it’s like this.

*Music plays*
My stupid no talent hack of a husband cheated on me, ME! Fucking gorgeous Uma Thurman and now I want to kick some major ass, but all the parts I’m getting just want me to be a big blonde bimbo

Quentin: Well Uma, what you said really didn’t go with the music that was playing, but I can write a movie where you can completely destroy a handful of people

within the star wars universe I think it has to do with the immediacy of the death. and vader acted confused because becoming one with the force upon death and surviving as a force ghost was a lost art until Qui-Gon rediscovered it, and Ben and Yoda refined it under the tutelage of qui-gon's ghost to the point that their bodies became one with the force upon death as well. it being a secret technique, Vader was never taught it nor was he even aware of it. he only became a force Ghost due to his last minute redemption and as he transitioned from life to death, yoda and ben helped him to become one with the force.

So... it's a good thing to become one with a bunch of bacteria?

If that's the case, they could've just spent a night in a cheap motel in Mos Eisley.

my brain nearly imploded reading that. just sort of... forget midichlorians. they aren't the force they're just like moths going towards the brightest light. you can't really tell how bright the light is by how many moths surround it, the jedi just used it to compare on jedi to another in terms of very ambiguous levels.

Most Broadway Inspired Death Bill
Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) - All That Jazz (1979) - 25 points

(1 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Monty)

http://www.youtube.com/v/bNcl0L7eJUY

Director: Bob Fosse (basically writing and staging his own death)
Starring: Roy Scheider, Jessica Lange, Ann Reinking, Ben Vereen
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: Slight.  This guy pretty much had it coming to him.  Although the bit where he hugs his daughter tugs at the heartstrings a little.
Wow/Kickass Factor: Huge wow factor if you like '70s variety shows and Everly Brothers songs.

Synopsis:

Anais asked me to write up the synopsis for this death.  Probably because she hadn't seen the film before and when she looked at the Youtube clip I suggested go with this entry, she was all like WTF was that?  To me, this scene is the ultimate "life flashing before your eyes" moment.  And it is hard to take the scene out of the context of the rest of the movie.  

Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) is a famous Broadway director working himself to an early grave.  The film shows his last frantic days trying to mount a new production while his health woes start taking a toll on him.  All the while having a running dialogue with his "Angel of Death".   Most descriptions of this film will tell you that the scenes throughout the movie that show Gideon talking to the "Angel of Death" (Jessica Lange) are just in his imagination.  But my interpretation is that the entire movie is him relating his story to her as he already lies on his death bed.  Leading up to the ending showstopper musical number where Gideon seemingly goes out with a bang.

I first saw this movie back in 1980 and have probably seen it 20 times since.  I just watched it a few weeks back after making this list.  To me it has always been the most compelling cinematic version of what happens to you when you die.  And hey, who wouldn't want a hot "Angel of Death" there to escort you into that long goodnight.


This is Anais speaking. I would like to say that having watched the scene in question, I really want to watch this film. Also Roy Schneider was hot

34 Henchman 24 – The Venture Brothers  (2003 - Present) – 40 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #? (Will check when back at the Hotel) Anais or PakMan)

http://www.youtube.com/v/_4LlA_yunVY?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Jackson Publick
Starring: Dr Venture and Family, Brock Samson, The Monarch, and Henchman 21 (aka Gary)
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: FUCKING HIGH! How DARE you kill 24! Don’t you understand he is the yin to Gary’s yang! You INHUMAN MONSTER
Wow/Kickass Factor: High – Def a surprising death that caused some awesome character development for 21 in season 4

Synopsis:

There have never been a greater pair of nerds in love since Kirk and Spock. 21 and 24. Its not that they get nerd references….it’s the nerd references they do get that makes them so lovable and enduring. 24’s death at the hands of (who? 21. Who killed your beloved? Was it Brock? Dr. Venture? Dr. Mrs the Monarch? No, 21. YOU are the true killer), anyway, after 24’s death, 21 becomes a hardcore henchman (including getting a Hench for Life tattoo on his now tawt abs) but nothing can replace the hole in his heart that is the loss of 24. A beautiful love story if ever there was on, this death is almost as bad as the death that did not actually occur in the film Serenity.

33 Judge Doom – Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) – 42 points
(X of 14 Lists. Will have to check when I get back to the Hotel)

http://www.youtube.com/v/MSTL3AidX4o?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Robert Zemeckis
Starring: Bob Hoskins, Christoher Lloyd, slutty cartoons
Gore Factor: High…..for toons
Sad Factor: Triumphant! Take that killer of toons!
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. In fact, the entire climax of this film is utterly amazing from start to finish

Synopsis:

Ya know why Who Framed Roger Rabbit? kicked ass? Well, everything, but the film noir twists were certainly a big help. And no twist was as awesome as the fact that the evil, toon hating Judge Doom...is a toon himself! This man terrorized the cute toons of Toontown by asking for the utter demise (almost Hitler-esque) only to be revealed to be himself a Toon (like a self-hating Jew….the WW2 references are just stacking up). But Judge Doom is not just any toon! Let’s just say we really hate him by this point in the movie….and then he dies in his own gas chamber…err dip. In his own dip

I know, really. Venture Brothers is one of my all time favorite shows, yet that never occurred to me at all. Not only that, I used to have a Nissan Stanza. It was even that color. (It was a hatchback though, not a sedan). Alternator went bad three times.

(4 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #8 Space)

http://www.youtube.com/v/nfjiGKy-lJI?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Guy Hamilton
Starring: Roger Moore, Yaphet Kotto, and some bimbos
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: Sad…it’s Bond. No one is sad when he kills people. And no one is sad about that STUPID WHORE VESPER! GET OVER HER ALREADY
Wow/Kickass Factor: High – Um…it’s Bond

Synopsis:

Live and Let Die: James Bond….with gators….and Paul McCartney….and Hookers! Wait, all James Bond movies have hookers. Anyway, Live and Let Die…widely believed to be the best Roger Moore Bond film, and with death’s like this, who can argue. Sure, larks with fricking laser beams attached to their foreheads would have made the film just a little bit better, but ya take what you can get.

I'm still trying to figure this death out.  So Bond shoves an explosive in his mouth, he blows up, flies to the ceiling and blows up again?  Is this what I'm seeing.

Also my sister, who was a gymnast, did a floor routine with Live and Let Die (specifically the rockin' part that comes after the chorus).  I also remember this one for having the only overtly super-natural bond villain.

Could you do me a kindness and tell me: did any of my picks make the list? A single one?! I'd rather just be let down now, in one sitting, than on a daily basis.

Ok, so I am still soooooooooooooooooo disorganized (sorry guys, I didn't think my life would be this much of a mess right now) so I can post two entries from work and then I will figure out how many posts per day with the last one being Oct 31st. If you want the last one earlier, I can update as needed. Please let me know

If you pulling your face off the screen and revealing the literary abyss beneath counted as a death, I'd have put that on a list. But it didn't. Too bad.

31 Frank – The Wire (2002) – 43 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #2 Wurwolf)

http://www.youtube.com/v/ZAathqcWAYk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Many Dudes and Dudettes
Starring: Dominic West, John Doman, and dead people
Gore Factor: Minimal (as far as I could tell the death occurred offscreen)
Sad Factor: I would say Mid to High. This character is what I would consider a working class hero. He know what is right and he knows what is wrong, but when his loved ones are in danger he will do whatever he needs to help them…..and then gets killed as a result.
Wow/Kickass Factor: High and Shocking.

Synopsis:
Poor poor Frank. All he wants is to throw the bad guys in jail and come home to his happy, non drug using family. The writer’s fro season 2 of this award winning drama felt differently though and this season’s climax involved the death of Frank at the hands of the bad guys.

30 Major Kong – Dr. Strangelove (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) (1964) – 43 points
(3 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #4 D.B. Barnes)

http://www.youtube.com/v/JlSQAZEp3PA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Starring: Peter Sellers, George C Scott, Peter Sellers, and Peter Sellers
Gore Factor: High….the entire world’s death is the ultimate in gore
Sad Factor: Ironically sad (the aforementioned death of the entire world)
Wow/Kickass Factor: Super High….in an ironic twist, just as the most important (and idiotic) men in the world decide NOT to drop the bomb, Major Kong rides it to his, and the world’s, death in one of the most delightful scenes in all of cinema

Synopsis:

America hates Russia. Russia hates America. And Dr. Strangelove hates….probably dogs and kittens….but we will never know. Down below the earth the most powerful people in the world (read all the people in the world that don’t deserve power and have it) are deciding what to do if Russia drops the bomb. This is all a moot point because Russia is merely playing Russian Roulette with us. That doesn’t matter when one lone nut is ready to go to any lengths to get those damn Ruskys. Paranoia is a bitch.

29 Ofelia – Pan’s Labrynth (2006) – 43 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 CJ Jones)

http://www.youtube.com/v/OxnkdiCu_bs?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Guillermo del Toro
Starring: Ivana Baquero and other Mexican people
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: Um…super fucking high. She’s the protagonist of the film for god’s sake
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Ofelia’s death at the hands of her stepfather/jackass revolutionary followed by his death later is a brilliant metaphor and re-telling of war time Spain. Having been to Mexico, the characterization of Vidal reminds me a lot of the characterization of some of the rebels in the Spanish Revelution (ya know, Pancho Villa et all) which is pretty awesome considering this is actually a Mexican film. It’s lovely to see how other countries will use their history to tell their own story in certain ways.

Synopsis:

No. No, you are not getting a synopsis (funny or otherwise). Watch the film yourself. You’ll thank me

http://www.youtube.com/v/4jOu-5ebDpc?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Joss “I kill all the characters you love” Whedon
Starring: Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, and Alan Tudyk
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: You do NOT want Anais to answer this
Wow/Kickass Factor: (meltdown in 3…2…1….) WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? THIS WAS THE WORST DEATH EVER IN THE HISTORY OF DEATHS AND YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE IT? I HATE JOSS WHEDON AND I HATE THIS SCENE…..so High

Synopsis:

Once upon a time, Joss Whedon created a character was soooooooooo awesome. He was funny, played with Dinosaur dolls, and got to bang a hot hot piece of ass. And then the show got cancelled. We were all sad about this because the show was super kick ass, but then…life! The show was given the chance to make a movie. And what a movie…what indeed WHEDON JUST DECIDED TO KILL A BUNCH OF CHARACTERS FOR NO DAMN REASON. I HATE YOU, WHEDON! DO YOU HEAR ME!

First, let me be clear: I AM NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM endorsing what he did.  But it was not "for no damn reason".  Whedon had to show that the Alliance, and the Reavers, were EQUALLY bad in their willingness and determination to indiscriminately kill our family...   ...er, the characters on the show and in the movie.

Wooo, two of mine show up! Frank Sobotka's death was just brutal for me. I should have seen from the beginning that he was doomed but I didn't, and in that penultimate episode of the second season, where Frank is walking off to meet both the Greeks and his death at their hands, I just wanted to die. I cried over that one. They ended that episode with him walking off, but the next episode, the last of the season, the cops are fishing him out of the bay.

Ofelia from Pan's Labyrinth was on my list, too. Useless metaphors and symbolism aside, Pan's Labyrinth is a really good movie with a good story, and I agree with Anais that if you haven't watched it by now you really should. It's an amazing piece of work.

Indeed, and one among several in this brilliant piece of film-making. It's such a fitting climax to everything that has led up to it. This is right up there with my favorite movies of all-time. I've seen it countless times and I thoroughly enjoy it each and every time. A true classic.

Director: Los Hermanos Cohen
Starring: Brad Pitt and George Clooney
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: High….for Angelina Jolie
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. This death was very shocking and out of the blue. Check Pitt’s smile right before the end and that will explain it all

Synopsis:

Ya know what is a really BAD idea? To shoot someone point blank in the face because they startle you. In you’re defense, why were they hiding in the closet? Ya know what. Don’t hide in closets and don’t shoot people point blank in the face. Yes, two very good lessons from a movie with a lot of good lessons.

(Fucking embedding disabled by request…losers)

Director: Mary Harron
Starring: Christian Bale and a bunch of people who do not distract Christian Bale
Gore Factor: Mid
Sad Factor: Minimal
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Hells to the yeah. Not only did someone FINALLY kill that Jordan Cantalano idiot from My So-Called Life, but he did it with…such style, such flare, such a soundtrack! Oh, and you cannot forget a line as good as “Try getting a reservation at Dorsei now you fucking stupid bastard!”

Synopsis:

Hey, do you guys remember the 80s? Of course you don’t. Either you were growing up and hugging your care bear (don’t lie) or you were doing LOTS of cocaine (and voting for Ronald Reagan). If you were able to remember the 80s, you might remember how fucking fake it was, especially for the people of Wall Street (apparently becoming the 1% involved a lot of insanity). American Pyscho is a movie about identity, shallowness, and, of course, murdering hookers with chainsaws. Man do I love this movie.

Jeez, are all the best scenes disabled for embedding?

Director: Dawson Leary’s favorite director
Starring: Roy Schneider and Cocaine….I mean Richard Dreyfuss doing a lot of cocaine
Gore Factor: High (mostly do to the mother’s acting post death)
Sad Factor: Um….well High for the mom….but I have this weird feeling that had Alex Kitner lived he would have ended up really fucked in the head so I am less sad.
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Come one, you can totally see the little raft flopping around in the background while nobody gives a shit. This scene changed parenting forever! Maybe Spielberg will re-release it with the shark replaced by a walkie talkie

Synopsis:

Jesus Hollywood. Is there anything in the world that doesn’t murder innocent children? I mean clowns, I can understand making a film warning kids against clowns. And yea, we should all stay away from evil cults that rip out our hearts before they sacrifice, but SHARKS? Seriously Spielberg, what did Sharks ever do to children? Man, you might as well make a movie where Dinosaurs run rampant and kill/eat everything in sight. Spielberg, you are like Tripe whenever Doc Who went on a rampage….always ruining people’s fun!

Gore Factor: High in the same respect Judge Doom and Marion Crane had high gory deaths….oh wait, I confused “gory” with “wet”
Sad Factor: That depends, did the witch just offer to let Dorothy live with her in a life of luxury?
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Dude, this scene is engrained in all our minds. I think it comes included with all newborns like original sin

Synopsis:

What’s better than a dreary black and white existence? I know! Tripping on acid and hanging out with a tin man, scarecrow, and Dr. Zoidberg. Also, make sure you kill the metaphorical representation of that bitch that wants to get rid of your dog because she is frigid and can only get pleasure from riding a bike. Yea, that’s it….throw some acid on her face! Wait, that was just water? Really? Well, who the fuck throws water at a person? Honestly! I hope the Michael Bay remake has acid….and Hookers!

Two that were on my runner-up, but didn't make the cut (I'm starting to fear that most of my list simply won't get in this time around).

Chad's was almost heartbreaking, he was among the only friendly and genuinely helpful people in the movie. Of course, that just made the film that much blacker, and overall I love it for that. Plus, this death was a great crowd bit when I saw it in theaters. People were just totally blindsided by it; one moment they were laughing at his discovery, and a split second later gasping at the gore.

And Paul Allen's is such an endlessly re-watchable scene (maybe not as much as the business card scene, but close). Funny, grisly, and bizarre, it works perfectly for the movie. It, like the rest of the film, is considerably less gory than the book (that book is... wow. Seriously, it's something else in terms of the red stuff), but I'm OK with that. Lets them play up the crazy an satire angles. Good scene that's essentially a meme now (seriously, go to the youtube video for Hip to be Square. It's just pages and pages of "Try getting a table at Dorsia now you son of a bitch!"*)

*Inside joke: Upon watching the scene in The Dark Knight where Bruce meets Rachel and Harvey in the restaurant (and proceeded to mention how he owned it), my friends and I smiled: he finally made it to Dorsia.

I had a Coen Brothers death on my list as well, and it was pretty high up too. If all three of us voted for the same one, it should make it.
One of my Coen deaths I'm not even sure is a legitimate "death", since the scene in question more involves body disposal than the actual transition from life to death. It's more a transition of dead matter into smaller particles, if ya get what I'm sayin. Ya?

I never have seen Burn After Reading though. I really should check that out.

You already saw the best part. I'm a huge Coen fan but BAR didn't do much for me. I kept "waiting to get it". Most of the humor deals with midlife crises & exercise addiction... an extraordinary amount of time is spent on Clooney's need for jogging. I can't relate to morning joggers or domestic/marriage issues. Maybe the film resonates more if you've been married for a while, I don't know.

Still, like Intolerable Cruelty, within a film I'm "meh" about is a hilarious death that had me laughing for minutes afterwards. (Though I didn't list the death from IC)

---------------
By the way, Paul Allen is a great choice. I was sick & my mind was kind of hazy when I rushed through my list at the last second, and Paul Allen seems a glaring omission. That scene is the only way to listen to Huey Lewis!

I do get what you're saying, and I'm pretty sure we voted for the same thing, you betcha! But even though he was probably already dead by that point, I still thought it was worth mentioning. We'll find out soon...

I see this a lot, and it's understandable. I feel the complete opposite though. I found it to be a very slow burn movie, and when I went to the midnight show way back when I was getting kinda antsy by about a half-hour in. But it really started to grow on me, just this series of despicable people doing stupid things in absurd, pseudo-spy ways, and by the end I was completely into it (My vote for best line in the entire movie is "I'm not hear representing Hardbodies", which had me almost in tears). Rewatching it made me get into it that much quicker, and now I'd probably put it in my Top 5 of Coen Brother movies.

The line I laughed at most was at the beginning: "Something popped in my ass!"

Maybe I'll give it another shot in the future (a luxury I can't see myself affording The Ladykillers).

Actually, there was another moment in Burn After Reading that made me start cracking up... when I was thinking about it months later during a long road trip.

Clooney: "WHO ARE YOU?!"
McDormand: "I'm...Linda Litzke!"

For some reason I found it very funny the way Carter Burwell's percussive-heavy score thumped over Clooney's paranoid freakout. How deliberately over-emphatic the percussion was, these abrasive *CLANGS* over an imaginary threat.

I appreciate the "idiot spy" element of it (though I prefer Lebowski in this respect). But... I just don't get the deal with joggers! Why the emphasis on middle-aged jogging addiction? Is it something I'll understand better when I'm in my 40's?

23 Jack Vincennes – La Confidential (1997) – 48 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #2 Cole Stratton)

(INSERT VIDEO HERE)

Director: Curtis Hansen
Starring: Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce, Alec Baldwin’s ex
Gore Factor: Mid (well there was blood)
Sad Factor: Pretty sad, he was my second favorite character. Guy Pearce was the best though….he’s so pretty *hearts in eyes*
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. The best deaths (outside of number 28) are those that occur unexpectedly to awesome characters

Synopsis:

Man, the late 90s early 00s were awesome for one Kevin Spacey. The Usual Suspects, American Beauty, and this awesome film. Guy Pearce was in it, Kim Basinger got an Oscar and….let’s face it, Clinton was office and we didn’t have this fucking recession and tea party and occupy wall street. Sigh. Simpler times. Let us bask in the glory that is La confidential (pronunciation provided by the Mystery Science Theater Academy of Robot Choice Awards Special).

Psycho is one of my all time favourites.  It definitely doesn't follow a conventional narrative (even for a thriller), but it's really easy to follow and enjoy.  I envy those who saw this film when it first came out having little idea what to expect.

Fun film trivia: Det. Arbhorghast doesn't pay for your hookers Mitchell.  Now look out for falling rocks.

21 Rev Smith – Deadwood (1960) – 49 points
(2 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Wurwolf)

This scene was the whole reason why I requested that television shows be included in this list. The whole of Deadwood is epic, but this scene in particular stands out. As long as I live, I will never forget it. When I sent Anais my list, I included my own feelings about it, and this is what I wrote. (By the way, Deadwood was made in 2004 and not 1960.)

I'm not going to give explanations for most of these, but this deserves one. In the episodes leading up to this scene, the Reverend was one of many of the cast of characters in Deadwood, eccentric but good-hearted and humble. He served the camp as the minister and wasn't too proud to sleep in a tent, and he was friendly with everyone, saint and sinner alike. As time went on, however, his eccentricities became alarming. His odd mannerisms, which at first were dismissed as quirks of his personality, were becoming odder by the day, and then he began to physically change -- his hands trembled, he blacked out, and one eye began to bulge from its socket, which suggested a brain tumor. Toward the end he was a rambling, incoherent mess, shaking, sweating and crying on a whore's bed in Al Swearengen's saloon because he was too sick to stay in his tent by himself.

I think one of the reasons his death moved me so much was because of the performance of two men: Ian McShane and Brad Dourif as Al Swearengen and Doc Cochran, respectively. In the video I linked, there is an amazing scene where Brad Dourif knocks it out of the park when he goes to his knees and begs a God that he's not even sure exists to please put the minister out of his misery. Ian McShane as Al plays his part full of barely buried emotion as he teaches his underling a lesson on how to deal out death. And when he whispers, "You can go now, brother" as the Reverend passes on, in some strange way it's just the most heart-breaking, yet fitting and dignified finale for a man who lived in a town where dignity in death was a rare commodity.

Later, I think, or maybe in that same episode, you find out that Al had a brother who suffered an illness with similar symptoms, and he watched him suffer until he died. His killing of the Reverend was an act of mercy based in past experience.

Director: Nelson Shin and Michael Bay
Starring: People
Gore Factor: Many spilled chemicals leaked from Prime after his grizzly demise.
Sad Factor: High (Sorry guys I know nothing about this so I can’t really judge)
Wow/Kickass Factor: Well…..the Bay film had loooooooooooooooooooots of action

Synopsis:

Do you guys remember my Top 50 Scifi characters and the honorable mention for Worst scifi characters? Yes, that would be the family Witwicki. So one of these deaths occurred in the film that has caused the greatest forum schism since the great Mike v Joel debate ’07. The other scene occurs in a Michael Bay film with the aforementioned Witiwickis. So I hope you guys can understand why I really can’t do any justice to this synopsis because I know nothing about the search material. So please: the floor is yours

Director: Westley Cravenski III
Starring: Johnny Depp as Glen and ass bucket loads of blood as themselves
Gore Factor: ∞+1 and π
Sad Factor: Meh, sad if you enjoy the sight of Johnny Depp’s midriff
Wow/Kickass Factor: ehhhh, the scene is lacking in that pizzazz….oh wait, the OPPOSITE OF THAT

Synopsis:

I don’t remember how old I was when I watched Nightmare on Elm Street, but it was older than normal….maybe 24, but man oh man, did I LOVE this scene. It was so visually entertaining and brilliantly shot. I love the low budget films because they come up with the best shots (also see: Original Star Wars (New Hope only) and Evil Dead)

http://www.youtube.com/v/aNUr__-VZeQ?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Starring: Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper
Gore Factor: Mid to High (they butcher a cow)
Sad Factor: Mid to High. I thought Kurtz’s (is that the correct way to express possession in this instance?) symbolic death was pretty sad but awesome. Others….maybe not so much
Wow/Kickass Factor: Super High like the price of the deductible Cheryl thought the health plan should have

Synopsis:

Many of the themes of Apocalypse Now are inspired and borrowed from The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot, and to me, that is what this film kind of feels like: visual poetry….in some ways. In other ways, it’s like I just injected LSD into my eyeballs. So, trippy or poetic, sad or justified, thin Brando or Fat Brando, this film and the climax are pretty awesome.

Director: Quentin Tarantino (is this his first time on the list?)
Starring: John Travolta (PRE Battlefield Earth) Samuel L. Jackson (Bad Muther Fucker), and Uma Thurman
Gore Factor: High
Sad Factor: How about laugh factor because I don’t know about you, but I laughed my ass off)
Wow/Kickass Factor: Super High….like Cheryl after she “glues up”

Synopsis:

The film that launched many a gore infused, foul mouthed, black comedy era in independent film, Pulp Fiction was very popular despite John Travolta pattern of speech. The dialogue was flashy, Sam Jackson was a bad ass muther fucker, and there was lots of cursing.

Also: This film came out the exact same day as Stargate.

3 points doesn't seem much, except it could lift Arbogast above Optimus Prime.

Either way, I'm sure the AFI considers Transformers 2 much more masterful filmmaking than Psycho.  >:D

Fair enough. I think for me it was in the idea that comedy comes from the unexpected happening. It was an over the top bit of 5 second film but it came out of nowhere.

Seeing as how by this time, you had already scene a man ass raped, I find your decision to hate Tarantino at this moment a little peculiar but that is just me I guess

Director: Nicholas Meyer
Starring: The Cast of Star Trek and Kirstie Alley
Gore Factor: Mid….did you see all that green blood on Spock?
Sad Factor: This deserves a “Ha” too because I think everyone who has had enough interest in Star Trek to watch all of Wrath of Khan was sad when this happened.
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. Not only did Shatner and Nimoy act the crap out of this scene, but the theme of the sacrifice (captured by Spock’s uber famous “the needs of the many outweight the needs of the few”) has been used in everything from South Park to Futurama to….well basically cool stuff

Synopsis:

Kirk: We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.

http://youtu.be/px0c4Tgg6gg

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Starring: Cool Gadgets, Monkeys, and a Homicidal computer
Gore Factor: High for Robots
Sad Factor: High. Yea, HAL wanted to kill everyone but it was only because he felt threatened and his survival instincts kicked in. You try to make machines human and you have to deal with the consequences
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. The pacing was brilliant, the acting amazing, and the parodies innumerable

Synopsis:

From my previous dossier (MUCH thanks to Johnny Unusual for his Master List of Crap)


Dossier: Hal was created in a lab in Illinois (much like Robot Abraham Lincoln) in 1992 (or 1997 depending on book or film), which means he was created almost 20 years in the past for our sci-fi list. HAL’s momma, Dr. Chandra, was always riding HAL to be perfect, giving him those fancy cerebral implants that all the other mothers said were dangerous, but Dr. Chandra thought “to hell with that, my little HAL is winning that little miss beauty pageant so I can be on toddlers and tiarras.” Later in life, HAL makes a calculating error (he was thinking about his mother at the time) and Dave and his co-pilot, God, decide to shut HAL down; however, those pesky cognitive functions include a desire for self-preservation. HAL instead turns on those pesky humans, and, in one of the most brilliant scenes in all of cinema, slowly sings “Daisy Bell” while being aware of his own destruction. EPIC.

Was that scene played for humor? I didn't remember the theater bursting out in laughter at it they way they did for this.

13 HAL 9000 –  2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) – 63 points

Sad Factor: High. Yea, HAL wanted to kill everyone but it was only because he felt threatened and his survival instincts kicked in. You try to make machines human and you have to deal with the consequences

Eh, not quite.  Kubrick's interpretation of what was going on was that HAL realized that he was fallible, had a breakdown and started killing everyone.
But Asimov disagreed with him there. There were elements in the script and novel that indicated that HAL knew the mission was all about the monolith and couldn't tell the crew about it and that's what caused the issues. In 2010, this is pretty explicitly spelled out in both the novel and film.

I had Arbogast as my #23 entry, was mine included? Because if it's 2 lists, and theoretically just me & Johnny, that only adds up to ~27 points. Shouldn't this be 3 lists? Are my 3 meager points part of the 48 total?

3 points doesn't seem much, except it could lift Arbogast above Optimus Prime.

Either way, I'm sure the AFI considers Transformers 2 much more masterful filmmaking than Psycho.  >:D

(Btw, Anais, I got a free calculator in the mail from some Veterans org. Want me to have them send you one too?  ;))

This is what I have: Johnny Unusual at # 2 (24 Points) + Kete at #23 (3 Points) + Cole @ # 5 (21 Points) = 48. Am I wrong?

Sad Factor: How about laugh factor because I don’t know about you, but I laughed my ass off)

I didn't find it funny at all, and I was kind of horrified that the theater did.  I think this is where I started hating Quentin Tarantino--40 minutes into the first movie of his I ever saw.

Fair enough. I think for me it was in the idea that comedy comes from the unexpected happening. It was an over the top bit of 5 second film but it came out of nowhere.

Seeing as how by this time, you had already scene a man ass raped, I find your decision to hate Tarantino at this moment a little peculiar but that is just me I guess

Same, was it because you don't find death funny?

11 Dude’s Head Blows Up –  Scanners (1981) – 63 points
(3 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #1 Shodan)

http://www.youtube.com/v/HY-03vYYAjA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US

Director: David Cronenberg (wow, really?)
Starring: Jennifer O’Neil, Stephen Lack
Gore Factor: um…yea, pretty darn high
Sad Factor: I would say low but I am not too familiar with the character
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. Like Glen’s death in Nightmare on Elm Street and the boat/dancing/death scene in Ghost Ship, Scanners is able to create an extremely unique death scene for the ages

Synopsis:

From Le Wiki:

Scanners are people with powerfully intense telepathic and telekinetic abilities. ConSec, a weaponry and security systems company, captures a homeless scanner named Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) at a shopping mall. Vale has been able to get by using his telepathy to make people eating near him allow him to steal some of their meals. Vale psychically overhears two women talking negatively about him, when suddenly one of them begins to convulse. Without knowing he is responsible for this, Vale attracts the attention of two ConSec agents, who shoot him with a tranquilizer dart and drag him away. He supposedly possesses tremendous scanner power, which ConSec wants to exploit, but he has become a derelict because he cannot cope with the overload of hearing others' thoughts. Meanwhile, ConSec's first Scanner is brutally murdered at a press conference by Scanner renegade Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside). Revok escapes, killing five people in the process.

Synopsis:

Hey girls, have you ever been warned not to date a momma’s boy? Did you ever wonder why that was? Well, it’s because of this film. Psycho is a psychological thriller about how fucked up a boy can get when his mother is the only feminine and controlling influence in his life. Also, it’s about symbolic birds of prey. Also, it had masturbation in it, but I personally could not tell until I watched the shit remake.

Also, it’s about crossdressing

I don't even know if the character has a name! He exists for his bald head to get exploded. If there's any grieving it's very far offscreen (I would assume he received a closed casket funeral).

...*IMDB research*...

Ahh, okay. This character is billed as "First Scanner", played by Louis Del Grande.

Here's his IMDB character page: http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0109579/ (http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0109579/)

I was more horrified that the whole theater spontaneously found it hilarious I guess?

I think death, if treated cartoonily (or if it's especially stupid) can be funny.  I can't think of an instance in which someone's brains are accidentally blown out all over the rear windshield of a car would ever be funny.

Be thankful you didn't see The Devil's Rejects at theaters. From accounts I've heard, teenagers were cheering on the rapist serial killers. And once I read the internet signature "Captain Spaulding is my hero."  :angry: And they weren't talking about the Groucho Marx one.  :grr:

I'll tell you a Tarantino moment whose audience reaction sickened me: in Kill Bill Volume One, when it's revealed that a comatose Uma Thurman's body has been pimped out for comatose rape. People just thought it was just hysterical when the dude held up that jar of Vaseline while explaining to the would-be rapist how he'd need to lube up her dry vagina. "Sexually violating coma patients, LOL."

As for the Pulp Fiction scene you object to: I find the shotgun scene funny because the actual act is quick & it's played out like a comedy of errors. I think part of the humor is their amorality and their panic is purely the inconvenience of the situation (it is, in a very black way, "situational comedy"). What I don't find so funny is a few minutes later when Tarantino delivers that endless self-written monologue about "dead nigger storage". That gives me the creeps way more than the splatter.

(Well, if anything, this post should confirm my anti-rape credentials.)

at the very end of devil's rejects when freebird kicked in and the whole family memories montage kicked in, for a full 3 seconds, i felt bad for them. then  all the shit these psychopaths did kicked in and I just enjoyed the scene of them getting shot.

also i'm the only person i know who laughs at the exorcist.

the greatest reaction shot i ever saw though was one of the first time the trailer for bruce almighty aired in theaters. because the words one man is given the powers of god lit up on the screen.... and then it cut to jim carrey. everybody half laughed and half groaned at the same time with a few "we're screwed"'s thrown in.

Really, only 47 points (also doesn't that make it much lower?  I'm going to assume there was a different number.  Also, no video?  I'm guessing there was an error there too.

If I may

http://www.youtube.com/v/8VP5jEAP3K4

What makes this death amazing is that the movie just KILLED OFF THE MAIN CHARACTER HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOVIE.  So who is our main character now?  Norman Bates, the killer (and though the audience didn't necessarily know that at the time, we are still watching a troubled young man cover up someone else's murder, so he's our main character). Putting aside the significance of that death in the film narrative, the death itself is horrifying in the way it's shot, the setting (hell, even if she was on the can she wouldn't feel more vulnerable), the way your mind makes you think that the knife touches the body when it doesn't and even the legendary musical sting.  Now I'm not saying it's the number one, but at the bottom of the top 10?  The other films'll really have to do some impressin'.

Synopsis:

Ahhhh Sicily. An island off the coast of Italy and full of…well smart people apparently. Too bad for any Sicillians, someone forgot to tell them that being too much of an egomaniac puts you in a pretty bad situation…thinking you are invincible. This invincibility might come from wits or might come from strength, but either way, don’t let any false sense of superiority allow someone to get the better of you. Although, nothing can stop true love, so maybe Vizzinni was as smart as he thought he was, he just got in the way of true love.

Ya know, maybe giving robots feelings will effect them in ways other than them signing “Life Forms…a little / life /forms.” One thing that def happens when you give robots feelings…they want to LIVE!!!!!!!!!
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH (I have a weird feeling all the rest will have this distinction). Batty’s speech is beautiful and poetic and gives added weight to the ending and theme of Blade Runner (depending on which version you watch)

Synopsis:

You guys remember that episode of Futurama where Bender became a human and then ate and drank and boned everything in sight for a week? How come SciFi movies like Blade Runner and 2001 focus on THAT element of making robots more human? Maybe the gluttony guy in Se7en was really robot that had been turned into a human

Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. I have never seen this movie in its entirety. When I was a kid, my family and I watched this movie (my dad’s pick) and as soon as this scene happened, my mom turned the movie off and we never finished it. Yet, throughout the many years since then and now, I cannot forget this scene.

Synopsis:

So, this might be a little known fact to anyone outside of Topher Grace, but Kurtwood Smith is an asshole. He wasn’t acting in this film, it was actually a documentary. Then Kurtwood Smith decided to give acting a try.

Robocop is a great satire documenting violence, the American dream, and the media. So, there is more to it than just badass deaths….I still probably won’t actually watch the film though

Is it okay to be sincere in these threads? I'm not sure whether or not I should volunteer the info that this scene has made me tear up many times.

And, Anais, thank you for not taking the clip from the '82 theatrical cut! Just at the height of this powerful, moving scene, Ford's narration comes in & kills it flat. The studios couldn't trust audiences to understand that Deckard was contemplating what just happened, so they forced him to add some boneheaded narration stating the obvious. "And that's when I understood..."

Quote
Sad Factor: High. Much like my opinion of HAL (of which Compound’s write up was great, but I stand by my view) Roy was a machine that got feelings.

Don't think me nitpicky, but Roy & his gang were replicants, not machines. The difference being, as I understand it, replicants are organic beings, not mechanical or A.I.. They were built, "but not to last". Before Roy crushes his skull, his maker Tyrell refers to him as a "prodigal son" and describes his strength & lifespan with: "The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long."

Basically they're built to be disposable ubermenches for various forms of slave labor. Roy's story, before Deckard butts in, is that of a man who seeks to meet his maker, and when he finally comes to the truth that his life can't be prolonged, kills his maker. The big difference between the '91 director's cut & the 2006 version is that Tyrell's changed metaphorically from a Creator to a father figure. Personally, I think there's more resonance in the idea of killing your god, but when there's multiple versions of a film we tend to stick with the version we grew up watching. One major line change as Roy's confronting Tyrell:

1991 cut: "I want more life, fucker."
2006 cut: "I want more life, father."

I neglected to put Tyrell's death on my list, but it gives me goosebumps every time.

TYRELL: "Go, revel in your time!"
ROY: "Nothing the god of biomechanics won't let you in heaven for?"

And Roy proceeds, violently & movingly, to revel in his time.

Hope you don't mind me making serious points about Blade Runner. I've been on a run of too many cheap bad jokes lately.

Quote
One thing that def happens when you give robots feelings…they want to LIVE!!!!!!!!!

Please don't tell me that last line is alluding to Michael Clarke Duncan in The Island! "The island, *SOB* YOU PROMISED!!! *SOB* IWannaLive!!!*SOB DROOL*"

Sad Factor: Minimal….come on, he was a bad guy. It’s not like when Walter died in The Big Lebowski
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. (I told you guys).

Synopsis:

All Carl Showalter wanted was to kidnap some bitch, get some money, and bone some bitches. It was going pretty well for the majority of the film until that damn nihilist decided to kill Carl and shove him in a wood chipper. Don’t worry, he got what was coming to him and Steve Buscemi got to go down in movie history

5 Quint  –  Jaws (1975)  73 points
(6 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #8 Space)

http://www.youtube.com/v/ys4V-MSXnAM?version=3&amp;hl=en_US
   
Director: Guess who? (He has, without question) the most memorial deaths on this list)
Starring: Roy Schneider, Robert Shaw….and don’t forget Ruchard Dreyfuss’ cocaine
Gore Factor: High
Sad Factor: I think it’s pretty high especially after the story Quint tells the guys on the boat about being in his first Shark Attack in the navy….on the other hand, I am sure even Quint thought his death kicked ass
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH.

Synopsis:

Man goes into cage. Cage goes into Salsa. Shark’s in the salsa….our shark. Yes, Quint is the quintessential bad ass of the 1970s, and seeing how he disposes of sharks only to get eaten by the number 1 shark of all certainly adds to his cool cred. Too bad for Quint, he never got that bigger boat

Director: Roger Allers, Rob Minkoff
Starring: James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, and Matthew Broderick
Gore Factor: Minimal
Sad Factor: This scene is the reason many people have daddy issues. Well maybe not, but it could be.
Wow/Kickass Factor: Hmmm, this is interesting. On the one hand, it’s not that unique of a death, but the fact that it occurred in a Disney movie and was soooooooo friggin sad (not to mention the fact the clear Hamlet undertones)

Synopsis:

Being King is a sucky thing sometimes…like when people try to kill you by drinking you. Or when your brother puts poison into your ear and then bones your ex. Or when your brother tosses you off a cliff in front of your son so that he runs away and joins a warthog and a meerkat to sing the most annoying song ever.

Honorable Mention Anna  – Martyrs (2008)  25 points
(1 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #1 D.B. Barnes)

http://www.youtube.com/v/sHe2y14xAv8?version=3&amp;hl=en_US
   
Director: Pascal Laugier
Starring: Morjana Alaoui, Mylène Jampanoï and Catherine Bégin
Gore Factor: Very high, as in skinned alive.
Sad Factor: Crushing and somehow satisfying at the same time.
Wow/Kickass Factor: Nothing can prepare you for it.

Synopsis: (Written by Barnes)

This is an absolutely soul-crushing movie, and this a powerfully emotional scene. Anna's death encompasses everything it led up to. I've never seen anything that is at once so horrible and so beautiful. The level of violence, the bleakness, the beauty of it. It is the ultimate act of defiance. This movie impacted me like a ton of bricks. I love how it's basically two movies, the first being an intense, supernatural, instant gratification revenge horror movie and the second being this incredibly moving psychological and spiritual revenge movie. It really is a stunning film.

And a Hollywood remake is a stupid idea. You're not going to make this movie any better, so don't even try. Leave this movie alone. I like Kristen Stewart (outside of her slack-jawed performances in the Twilight trash) but there's no way a remake will match the sheer intensity and impact of the original. The French treat their horror movies like art, an art at which they're extremely adept. Just walk away, Hollywood. Just walk away.

Unfortunately, this is the only video I could find. It's a shame because it doesn't include the amazing visual imagery inside Anna's mind. This is the imagery I think of when I think of the moment of death. If you're at all a fan of revenge movies, you really must watch this.

(7 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #3 Doctor Who?)

http://www.youtube.com/v/kCgVReb585M?version=3&amp;hl=en_US
   
Director: Edgar Wright
Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost
Gore Factor: Probably one of the higher ones on the list (because the spire replaces his head but he still walks around)
Sad Factor: Depends on how you look at it. It’s sad because out heroes were sad, but Tim Messenger was kind of a dork
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH

Synopsis:

Hot Fuzz is an awesome movie for a couple of reasons. One of those reasons is that it’s an homage to underrated cop movies like Point Break. The other reason is that there is some amazingly unique scenes in a film that started with two dudes wanting to somewhat copy other cop films. The death of Tim is no exception. Not only does this scene come out of nowhere (and may or may not be possible to actually plan from a physics standpoint) but it’s shocking, gory, and over the top. Just the way a death scene should be

Russell Franklin: Just what the hell did you do to those sharks?
Dr. Susan McCallister: Their brains weren't large enough to harvest sufficient amounts of the protein complex. So we violated the Harvard Compact. Jim and I used gene therapies to increase their brain mass, a larger brain means more protein. As a side effect the sharks got smarter.

Although they pretend to provide you with the love you need because Daddy was always drinking on Sundays instead of taking you to the park, they are really trying to lay their eggs inside your stomach. You may not think this is bad, but it is, especially if you are sitting around in a dinner, minding your own business, and BAM! Fucking creature burst its way out of your chest and starts singing showtunes. Pretty scare. Think about it

Fucking creature burst its way out of your chest and starts singing showtunes. Pretty scare. Think about it

interesting fact here. the actors didn't actually know how exactly the effect was going to be produced so when the thing actually popped out of his chest, those were real reactions. it actually scared the crap out of them . take that girl in the background for instance, that scream and fall wasn't exactly rehearsed, it was her reaction to the effect.
Quote
Ron Shusett: Veronica Cartwright — when the blood hit her — she totally passed out. I heard from Yaphet Kotto’s wife that after that scene he went to his room and wouldn’t talk to anybody.

Yaphet Kotto: Oh man! It was real, man. We didn’t see that coming. Can you imagine, we’re struggling with this guy, and here we are acting. You know they are going to do something, you don’t know what, then all of a sudden this thing splats in front of you, and it breaks loose. We were freaked. The actors were all frightened. And Veronica nutted out.

Dan O'Bannon: This jet of blood, about three feet long, caught her smack in the kisser.

Veronica Cartwright: I didn’t have to do anything. I didn’t have to say, “Oh, I’m acting now.” Your reaction is just going off what you’re seeing. It was totally a visceral thing. That huge thing of blood hit my face and I backed up and flipped upside-down. It was on the dailies, it was hysterical. But that was it. It was a one-off. Everyone’s reaction was totally real.

Great job, Anais.

Here is my list. For some reason I couldn't get the embedding to work on any of these.

1. Transformers: The Movie - Death of Optimus Prime

2. Alien - John Hurt chestburster scene

3. Monster Squad - Wolfman dying after getting shot with a silver bullet saying "thank you".
Such a kickass movie, and even has a poinient moment I just love amidst all the mayhem.
http://youtu.be/KhsL_G0x5Bw (http://youtu.be/KhsL_G0x5Bw)

4. Robocop - Death of Murphy when he gets shot to pieces by the gang

5. Chicken Run - Edwina head chopped off
Such a quiet moment, which makes it so much more powerful in this movie. Really hits home the predicament the characters are in.

6. UP - Death of Ellie

7. Who Framed Roger Rabbit - Toon shoe dipped in Dip
Much more emotional and shocking scene that the kickass fun scene of Judge Doom's death, but this one I find much more memorable.
http://youtu.be/RwPkAUBr4Sc (http://youtu.be/RwPkAUBr4Sc)

8. Raiders of the Lost Ark - Major Toht face melt

9. Gremlins - Gremlin in microwave
Damn is Billy's Mom badass! I wish he had brought her along for the rest of the movie.
http://youtu.be/u1QIbENq66w (http://youtu.be/u1QIbENq66w)

10.Robocop - Mr. Kenny shot by ED-209
How did this not make the list?
http://youtu.be/NMihmYf4WJI (http://youtu.be/NMihmYf4WJI)

11.Scanners - Head explosion

12.Undefeatable - Villain hung by a hook through his eyeball
Ok, this may be a rediculous movie, but OH DEAR GOD the ending where they kill the bad guy, by hanging him by a hook through his eye socket! Holy shit!
http://youtu.be/uxkr4wS7XqY (http://youtu.be/uxkr4wS7XqY)

13.Dead Alive - Preacher impaled on tombstone after "I kick ass for the Lord!"
A movie full of awesome shit, and this still stands out.
http://youtu.be/qFhs5LCNTFY (http://youtu.be/qFhs5LCNTFY)

14.Jaws - Quint being eaten

15.The Thing - guy who's head rips off to become spider head thing
Another one chock full of awesome moments, but this is one of the most memorable. Unfortunately, the clip is labeled for 18+, so you have to log in to see it.

16.The Blob (remake) - Guy pulled down kitchen sink hole
http://youtu.be/CW6maJgzk7E (http://youtu.be/CW6maJgzk7E)

17.Robocop - guy splattered by car after melted from toxic waste
(http://youtu.be/tjEdLuqK1RQ)

18.Killer Clowns from Outer Space - People eaten by shadow puppet
http://youtu.be/aeEy7UZpLZ8 (http://youtu.be/aeEy7UZpLZ8)

19.South Park - Kenny head impaled on flagpole
The group of them were on the list, but this is my personal favorite.

20.Innerspace - Igo digested in stomach
A great Joe Dante movie, not as well remembered as it should be.
Can't seem to find the clip.

21.Blackadder season one - Death of everyone at end of season one finale
My favorite of the endings. Although I do agree the Season 4 ending is more emotional.
Hmm. Can't find the clip of this either. Bugger.

22.Phantasm - Guy getting head drilled by sphere
Aside from Angus Scrimm's performance, the only good part about this movie.
http://youtu.be/88Orp1DcA0w (http://youtu.be/88Orp1DcA0w)

Thank you to Anais.whatever for hosting the current LoC. Here was my list, in case anyone cares. Ones that made it are in bold:

1 Ofelia from Pan's Labyrinth. I was literally crying at this. One of only three movies that made me cry.
2 Cain's chest burster scene in Alien.

3 Koobus Venter being ripped apart by the pissed off Prawns in District 9. (there were tons of awesome kills in this)
4 General Walther Von Schenkopf in Legend of the Galactic Heroes. AKA this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ccjs0FfhmQQ And if anyone else votes for this, I'll be amazed. One of the best shows ever made, animated or not.
5 Belloch (and his Nazi collaborators) in Raiders being incinerated by the power of God.  And yes, I thought of this on my own.
6 Steve Buscemi in the wood chipper in Fargo (although he was probably already dead by that point).
7 Alex Murphy being dismembered in Robocop (even though he comes back)
8 Mufasa being trampled to death. Not gory, but a cool and memorable scene
9 The church spire landing on Tim Messenger's head in Hot Fuzz.

10 Finally killing the fucking Terminator in Terminator.
11 Xander getting his brains sucked out in Starship Troopers
12 David getting his intestines ripped out in Shawn of the Dead.
13 Mole's death in South Park, Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Though I die.. La Resistance lives... Shit!
14 Sam Jackson being suddenly turned into a blood stain by a super intelligent shark, totally out of the blue, in Deep Blue Sea. I admit, this startled me.
15 Dick Jones in Robocop. You're fired!
16 That one guy in Temple of Doom who gets his heart ripped out and then is lowered into lava.
17 Spike in Cowboy Bebop (I admit I wouldn't have thought of that on my own, so thank you forum)
18 Quint being eaten alive in Jaws.

19 Bill Murray being mistaken for a zombie in Zombieland
20 The little girl stabbing her mother to death with a spade in Night of the Living Dead.
21 Kate being head sniped in NCIS. That came as a surprise.
22 Kevin Bacon being stabbed through the throat by Jason's mom in Friday the 13th.
23 Arnold being lowered into the molten metal in Terminator 2.
24 Hans Gruber falling from the building in Die Hard
25 Brad Wesley in Roadhouse. Did you see anything?

Ones I wish I had submitted include Hazel in Watership Down, Judge Doom in Who Framed Rodger Rabbit  and Count Rugen in The Princess Bride. OTOH, I'm a little bit surprised I'm apparently the only person to vote for Koobus Venter in District 9.

Good job Anais.

For some reason when I try to post with the liks to the youtube clips it keeps getting flagged as spam.

One that I realized I missed and REALLY should have bee on my list, and I can't beleive it didn't make the Top 50 List. It should have been pretty high on it, too. Captain Rhodes' death in Day of the Dead. CHOKE ON 'EM!

1. Transformers: The Movie - Death of Optimus Prime

2. Alien - John Hurt chestburster scene

3. Monster Squad - Wolfman dying after getting shot with a silver bullet saying "thank you".
Such a kickass movie, and even has a poinient moment I just love amidst all the mayhem.


4. Robocop - Death of Murphy when he gets shot to pieces by the gang

5. Chicken Run - Edwina head chopped off
Such a quiet moment, which makes it so much more powerful in this movie. Really hits home the predicament the characters are in.

6. UP - Death of Ellie

7. Who Framed Roger Rabbit - Toon shoe dipped in Dip
Much more emotional and shocking scene that the kickass fun scene of Judge Doom's death, but this one I find much more memorable.


8. Raiders of the Lost Ark - Major Toht face melt

9. Gremlins - Gremlin in microwave
Damn is Billy's Mom badass! I wish he had brought her along for the rest of the movie.


10.Robocop - Mr. Kenny shot by ED-209
How did this not make the list?


11.Scanners - Head explosion

12.Undefeatable - Villain hung by a hook through his eyeball
Ok, this may be a rediculous movie, but OH DEAR GOD the ending where they kill the bad guy, by hanging him by a hook through his eye socket! Holy shit!


13.Dead Alive - Preacher impaled on tombstone after "I kick ass for the Lord!"
A movie full of awesome shit, and this still stands out.


14.Jaws - Quint being eaten

15.The Thing - guy who's head rips off to become spider head thing
Another one chock full of awesome moments, but this is one of the most memorable. Unfortunately, the clip is labeled for 18+, so you have to log in to see it.

16.The Blob (remake) - Guy pulled down kitchen sink hole


17.Robocop - guy splattered by car after melted from toxic waste


18.Killer Clowns from Outer Space - People eaten by shadow puppet


19.South Park - Kenny head impaled on flagpole
The group of them were on the list, but this is my personal favorite.

20.Innerspace - Igo digested in stomach
A great Joe Dante movie, not as well remembered as it should be.
Can't seem to find the clip.

21.Blackadder season one - Death of everyone at end of season one finale
My favorite of the endings. Although I do agree the Season 4 ending is more emotional.
Hmm. Can't find the clip of this either. Bugger.

22.Phantasm - Guy getting head drilled by sphere
Aside from Angus Scrimm's performance, the only good part about this movie.


23.Starship Troopers - guy who gets brains sucked out


24.Dark Crystal - Death of Skeksis Emperor


25.Maximum Overdrive - Guy getting killed by soda machine

That was #9 on my list, as you'll see below. I guess we both didn't reach high enough.

1. Videodrome-  Harlan's "hand grenade" explosion   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=t7KeCf08S5E#t=534s (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=t7KeCf08S5E#t=534s)) "SEE YOU IN PITTSBURGH!"

6. Burn After Reading-  George Clooney is startled by a smiling Brad Pitt & shoots him in the head point blank

8. Alien-  John Hurt gets chest-bursted

Title: Re: Top 50 Deaths! (Entire thread has been marked NSFW)
Post by: Johnny Unusual on October 31, 2011, 10:13:08 PM
Good list overall, but I still think the death of Marion Crane is #1.  It is in my book.  The book is called "the Things that are #!"  I have yet to find a publisher.  

Personally, while I like the list, I think TV and movie death should have been different topics.  They tend to have a very different feel (partcularly in serialized... er... series).  Disappointed that there weren't many horror deaths.  Here's my list.

1. Marion Crane (Psycho)
2. Detective Arboghast (Psycho)

3. “Judy Barton” (Vertigo)
(This one is more about ridiculous tragedy and emotional impact over everything.  It might seem silly, and kind of is, but in context it's pretty shocking.  I'd also argue that it's Hitchcock's creepiest movie.  Creepy, romantic and very, very sad)
Sadly, I can't find the video for this scene anywhere.
4. First Victim (Jaws)
I wish there was a better video or one with more of a buildup but there you go.
http://www.youtube.com/v/UPEHygqoKZU
5. Charles Foster Kane (Citizen Kane)
http://www.youtube.com/v/jipboWI9uiE
6. Willa (Night of the Hunter)
"Leanin', Leanin'..."  The death happens off screen, but the transition from the threat to the death is truly unsettling.  Skip to 8:30 for the scene.
http://www.youtube.com/v/2tSLt5YjBg4  
7. HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey)
8. Sergeant Neil Howie (The Wicker Man.  THE GOOD ONE)
http://www.youtube.com/v/Apm4KX9UBM0
9. Pat Hingle (no, not THAT Pat Hingle) (Suspiria)
I am SO disappointed this one didn't make it.  Gory, beautiful and of course, overly elaborate.
http://www.youtube.com/v/V2O1TIWYW74
10. Miriam (Strangers on a Train)
Couldn't find this one.  Not one of the best death scenes, but still moody.
11. Kirk (the Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
I hope I'm not alone here.  By far the best death scene in Texas Chainsaw.  Not really gory, but visceral and nasty.  SLAM!
http://www.youtube.com/v/1igo_Kh0kwI
12. Baptism (The Godfather)
13. Melting Nazis (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
14. Kane (Alien)
15. Judge Doom (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)

16. Sara (Suspiria)
Not Pat Hingle good, but still good.  Couldn't find a video though
17. An accidental murder (The Descent)
Too tired to look for the video, but this takes what could have been "victim finally gets to turn badass and has it have tragic results"
18. Suicide again and again and again (Groundhog Day)
Just plain fun.  Great movie.
19. Tim Messenger (Hot Fuzz)
20. Brundlefly (The Fly)
21. The Bridge of Death (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
22. Uncle Charlie (Shadow of a Doubt)
23. Buffy Summers (the second time) (Buffy the Vampire Slayer “the Gift”)
24. Whoever Bjork Played (Dancer in the Dark)
Also might make top 10 for best musical numbers if we ever do that (and I hope we do).
25. Grimmer (Monster, the third to last episode I believe*)

Post by: Relaxing Dragon on October 31, 2011, 10:27:58 PM
Wow... I guess I was the only one who cut out nearly all the meaningful deaths in favor of the more entertaining ones:

1. Capt. Rhodes gets torn apart by zombies (Day of the Dead, original)
2. Fire Extinguisher Beatdown (Irreversible)
3. Beach Attack (Piranha 3D)
4. Girl gets battered, deep-fat fried, and her head knocked off (Blood Diner)
5. Copper gets his arms bitten off (The Thing)
6. Tim Messenger meets the falling church spire (Hot Fuzz)
7. Kid dives headfirst into a woodchipper (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil)
8. Samuel L. Jackson gets eaten mid-speech, indoors (Deep Blue Sea)
9. Frozen face slammed into the counter (Jason X)
10. Quint getting chomped (Jaws)
11. Triple Decapitation (Machete)
12. Cab three person stabbing (I Saw the Devil)
13. Car crusher death (Kick Ass)
14. Wedding Reception Attack (Alligator)
15. Ripped from the blood pressure cuff (Dawn of the Dead, original)
16. Concrete saw through a windshield and into a chest (High Tension)
17. The first human to explode via alien gun (District 9)
18. Woman in the phone booth (The Blob)
19. Jason and the Sleeping Bag (Friday the 13th Part VII)
20. Venus Fly Trap, uh, trap (Saw II)
21. Girl gets sliced in half… vertically (Wrong Turn 2: Dead End)
22. Bagboy gets torn up and dragged away (The Mist)
23. Walter gets eaten (Tremors)
24. David gets torn apart (Shaun of the Dead)
25. Little kid gets munched (Feast)

Some of my more esoteric choices I knew had no chance of making it, but come on... no Irreversible fire extinguisher? No woman trying to make a call and getting Blobed? No mass attacks by either a giant Alligator or a bunch or Piranhas? No Captain Rhodes?

Such madness, this is.

5. Copper gets his arms bitten off (The Thing)
This should have been on the list, it was really high up on mine as well. I think it was either 3 or 4. Plus Sutter Cane had it, and Darth Geek kinda had it (it's the same scene)

Post by: wurwolf on November 01, 2011, 06:47:48 AM
I enjoyed putting this list together, and while I'm glad that television shows were allowed, I can see the argument for splitting the lists into two distinct types. You could even take it further and make a list for only horror movie deaths, or funny deaths, or gross-out deaths. In the end, none of these distinctions were made and we wound up with a pretty broad, all-encompassing list.

Here's mine. All of my top-rated deaths are from HBO shows. The only one I would remove from the list is the last, and I only tacked that on there because I couldn't think of any others.

1. Reverend Smith - Deadwood
2. Frank Sobotka - The Wire

3. Stringer Bell - The Wire
4. Viserys - Game of Thrones (HOLY SHIT I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT. What a way to go.)
5. Adriana La Cerva - Sopranos
6. Ned Stark - Game of Thrones
7. Maggie - Million Dollar Baby
8. Ofelia - Pan's Labyrinth
9. Marion Crane - Psycho
10. Nazi - Raiders of the Lost Ark

11.  Mu Bai - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
12. Wicked Witch of the West - Wizard of Oz
13. Alex Kintner - Jaws (that raft flopping around was a nightmare)
14. Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

15. Edward Malus - Wicker Man (Nic Cage version, for pure hilarity)
16. Joker's disappearing pencil - Dark Knight
17. Quint - Jaws
18. Bruce - Jaws
19. Buffalo Bill - Silence of the Lambs
20. Charlotte - Charlotte's Web
21. Mufasa - The Lion King
22. Eaten Lawyer - Jurassic Park
23. Big Pussy - Sopranos
24. Carl Showalter - Fargo
25. Guy smothered in the corn chute - Witness

It's an amazing and haunting scene.  The whole movie is great, but it really is all leading up to that scene.  I suppose that Summerisle's prayers aren't going to do much come next year's harvest.  Unless the apples come back.

Other great thing about this movie: it's not misogynistic and dumb NEIL LABUTE!

2.   Vincent Ludwig - The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Okay, unless my math is wrong, since I had him at 7, and you had him at 2, that'd be 43 points. If no one else voted for him, that'd put him right behind Wash.

If you guys want to I will work with tripe to get that done in a timely manner. I think the stress of work really affected this list for me...plus I had to travel and all that. My apologies. I do hope this does not stop me from hosting any lists, but I will refrain from doing them until work calms down

WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK

How did I not have Darth Vader on my list? I swear to God I had it in one of my earlier versions. I have no fucking clue as to why I would have removed it.

I know you've been busy, Anais. We might be able to get it done without any further trouble on your part if everyone still has their lists.

AWESOME choice, wish I had thought of it. I adore "In Bruges"--one of my favorite films of that year. Did you happen to see "The Guard" with Brendan Gleeson? It's written/directed by John Michael McDonagh (Bruges director Martin's brother). Not nearly as good, but another great Gleeson performance.

Hmm. I had this as #9 in my list. Darth Geek said he had this in his list. Whoever's redoing the math, please investigate Rhodes. He gets easily riled up about things like--- oh no, too late-

"I'm running this monkey farm now, Frankenstein, and I want to know what the fuck you're doing with my time!"

We need more time!

No, I said I can't beleive I forgot to put it on my list. EPIC death. And a great character, too. What I like best about it is that while he is certainly unhinged and dangerous a a truly horrible person, and never should have been given ANY type of authority of any kind. Yet you can still understand his frustrations with the scientist characters (Frankenstein most notably) who aren't really helping the situation either.

Haven't seen it but will be seeking it out. 

"In Bruges" was also one of my favorite films from that year.  I felt it got robbed at the Academy Awards with just the lone screenwriting nomination.  Brendon Gleeson more than deserved a supporting actor nomination, and Colin Farrell was a revelation in this.  His best work, IMO.

I am anxiously awaiting Martin McDonagh's next film.

Yeah, Farrell was amazing in that movie. I've always liked him, but this was his best work by far. My other favorite Gleeson performance was in John Boorman's The General, which can be hard to track down but is a great piece of filmmaking.

The Guard is quite good, yeah, Do check it out. That it stays at the "quite good" level even as you spend the entire time you watch it subconsciously comparing it to In Bruges (though there isn't much that's actually similar about them, apart from the dark level of humor) says a lot about it.

That is a great death (like pretty much every death in that movie). Had my list been more towards the meaningful/dramatic side, I would've placed it. And yes, it got shafted at the Oscars (like all really good, non-cookiecutter movies).

Yet you can still understand his frustrations with the scientist characters (Frankenstein most notably) who aren't really helping the situation either.

He goes too far messing with the wise & peaceful Jamaican dude though. Any film character who says something as despicable as "Knock some sense into that jungle bunny head of his" is just begging to be dismembered!

I love the Jamaican dude, he has to be the most rational, levelheaded character in any Romero film. There's even a piece of advice he gives to Lori that I've clung to for therapeutic value when I've tried to get friends to open up to me: "It takes more energy to keep it bottled inside than it does to let it out. Let go of whatcha got, now." It's usually worked. So much so that I got sick of being considered some sort of token psychotherapist.

The Jamaican & the Irishman made a great team. "Jesus, Mary & Joseph!"

Have you listened to the DVD commentary track(s)? All the commentaries I've heard with Romero + Savini have been great.

Did you ever post your own 25 list? C'mon, share with us! I'd like to see what deaths you chose. I can't be the only curious one. After experiencing all the pressures of hosting a LOC, chill out & be a participant.  :)

And if you're experience workplace frustrations, this hilarious (bloody) Robocop clip should help blow off some steam: http://youtu.be/NMihmYf4WJI (http://youtu.be/NMihmYf4WJI). Just imagine ED-209's shooting any workplace antagonists you may have.  >:D

(And if someone ever gives you shit, say "You now have 15 seconds." Few things are cathartic like imagining one's adversaries riddled to a pulp with bullets from a malfunctioning robot.)
